Omar Archer Sr.

Bahamas Press is concern about of the level of violence in the country today. And when writers, judges, court prosecutors and GOOD police officers become the targets of criminals all know, The Bahamas is headed on a downhill collision course. A course like the Rwandan Genocide, where drug and gun totting gangs toppled the working of law and order in the society.

Omar Archer Sr. a vocal radical in the country and fellow blogger on Bahamas Press was shot in a drive-by shooting in the Nassau Village area over the weekend. Archer’s radical stand against the ‘Crooked Officers’ in the Royal Bahamas Police Force  is believed to be reason for him being a target. One can only wonder what is Nassau coming to, when person after person can be gunned down in this fashion and the society turns a blind eye to it. Not even Perry Christie’s PLP denounced the attack on Archer’s life, a former candidate for Chairman in that party.

Bahamas Press denounces this wicked assault on Archer and arguably decry the silence following it. The Bahamas has changed and the criminals (some in uniform) are creating mayhem and terror in this country. New targets today are journalist and vocal persons. A few months ago the Rev. Simeon B. Hall received death threats, as he spoke to murders in the country. And today writers and activists are now new targets of drive-by, as seen with Archer, a contributing blogger of Bahamas Press.

We however are committed to this ground war, we are NOT suicidal in any way. But in soundness of mind and heart believe it is time to TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK! And yes we know blood will flow in us doing this mission. For we are committed to you, our thousands of loyal readers who believe in our message and hope for the same, in a Better and Brighter Bahamas.

Unwavering to this cause, yes Bahamas Press says, “CHANGE WILL COME!!!”

  1. I am with you BP. Ingraham and Christie NEED TO GET GOING!!!! The country has had enough of them and SURELY Bahamians MUST KNOW that there are other people out there who can lead those two political organizations. I am SICK of those two men and how they are dragging down this country.

  2. My prayers are with Omar Archer, may GOD heal and bring him through this time of pain and hurt. This country needs prayers, I believe the violence begins at home. We need to really think before we react. There are other ways to solve conflict. No matter what the situation is, we can solve a conflict non-violently!

  3. Tonight we are breaking the SILENCE and offering to ANY who will take this line. Rid the PLP of Christie and the FNM of Hubert. Twenty-five (25) Years of Pindling rule was too much for the country and 30 years OF political power for the CHRISTIE/INGRAHAM machine is WAY too much for my generation.

    Its TIME FOR CHANGE and A NEW Political DIRECTION IN THE BAHAMAS!

    For GOODNESS SAKE SOMEONE GRAB THIS LINE AND TAKE these two (CHRISTIE AND INGRAHAM) into THE POLITICAL WILDERNESS!

    30 years is ENOUGH! THREE DECADES OF THE SAME? WE NEED CHANGE AND NO MORE OF THE SAME!

  4. Whoa!! What a blow!! BP run hot on them PLPs.

    I wonder if this information wasnt released on Bahamas Press if the PLP would have ever made a comment.

  5. My goodness, what The Bahamas is coming to these days? Omar Archer a fellow blogger on Bahamas Press and a political activist was shot in the stomach by a KILLER in the Nassau Village area last week Thursday. Up to Saturday police had failed to confirm that Archer was the man shot.

    The WUTLESS PLP of whom Archer ran as a candidxate for chairman in the last PLP convention, said not a word about the shooting until today, Monday 8th (almost a week later). Where they quoting lines form the ‘Wutless’ Tribune saying:

    “Former candidate for PLP Chairman and community activist, Omar Acher has been shot. According to press reports, Mr. Archer was shot in the abdomen while in the Nassau Village area.

    “In an interview with the Tribune, Mr. Archer retold the horrifying experience of how, after being shot, the gunman attempted to shoot him in the head twice but missed both times.

    “Mr. Archer was driven to the hospital by a teenage Samaritan. Having gone through surgery, he is now recovering at the Princess Margaret Hospital under tight security.

    “Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Archer and the Archer family and we wish him a speedy recovery.”

    It is a DAMN SHAME to see and hear the SLOW LAZY reaction of the PLP to this kind of mayhem and SLAUGHTER in this country, now being committed against one of their own. Bahamas Press again denounces this crime committed against Archer, and equally condemns the quieting SILENCE and COWARDICE response of the PLP – the party to which Archer publicly supports.

    This is totally UNBECOMING OF a party that once claimed to be the voice of the people! The Progressive Liberal Party has become an organization stepping in consistent rhythm with today’s Ingraham government, out of touch, out of step and mask in ELITISM, even in the face of a public ‘bloody slaughter’ of one of their own.

    Bahamas Press cries shame on this reaction by the PLP, AND in particular the reaction by their leadership, with their regular SLOW, INDECISIVE and LAZY approach to times of CRISIS in this country.

  6. BP what is Omar’s present condition? Was his wound life threatening?

    It is a shame that the last party Omar was affilated with was the PLP and they are dead quiet on this issue. Shouldnt they have released a statement? My, my, my!! Do we still have an OFFICIAL OPPOSITION in this country? Somone please tell me.

  7. I believe that Omar may have been accidentlly shot in that drive by. The other person may have been the target. Its sad but the Nassau Village area is well known for this sort of thing. Im praying that he make it through.

  8. Again we say, NOT A WORD FROM CHRISTIE! NOT A SINGLE WORD! MY GOODNESS the Nation is collapsing in violence and CRIME and NOT A DAMN WORD FROM THE PLP. Even though one of their own has been SHOT DOWN LIKE A DOG ON THE STREET!

  9. News flash! Omar lives in Nassau Village. This is another case of how dangerous our country is becoming, you are not even safe in your own neighbourhood.

  10. Come on now Wutless…..not because he was in Nassau Village does it mean he was up to no good.

    My maid lives in Nassau Village and the wife sends me to drop her home most of the time. That is a rough neighbourhood but not because you have to go there does it mean you are up to no good.

  11. proud FNM i with you on that people gettin shot every day.

    lets not get bent outta shape here. Omar is my friend as well, and as a friend i know him not only as a radical but as they say in streets “a souljha” correct me if im wrong media

    so lets just say he was in a questionable area and shot means that there is no chance that he was up to no good? just asking ?

    but im saddened that he was shot

  12. You all blowing this shit out of proporation.. Omar was shot… like so many people are today… maybe he was just where he should not have been,…..

  13. May I wish you god speed, safety and steadfastness.

    I have enjoyed this blog and the investigative reporting for numerous months.
    In the event this blog has to shut down, understandably a voice will be silenced… but in the process… I hope ones life can be speared.

    I will pray for you and your family Media

  14. Media it’s just terrible that people would put you in harms way just for voicing your opinion. I am starting to see why those other wutless media fails to comment on anything. This is so disgusting and sickening. We think we are free to talk, but we are not. May God protect Omar and the other bloggers for being true to their belief.

  15. Anybody know of his condition? I pray he makes a full recovery, but lets not jump to conclusions as to why it happened without any evidence.

  16. And Monique it is the PLP’s WUTLESS Webmaster who came on Bahamas Press calling names of individuals. I home he has notified those persons how he place them in harms way. That’s the PLP for ya! Can you imagine how Omar is now a target as he blogged on here?

  17. THIS IS A VERY SAD DAY IN OUR COUNTRY, WHEN YOU CAN NOT WRITE OR DISCUSS WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY. I HEARD ABOUT THESE THINGS HAPPENING IN THE MOVIES OR IN THE MIDDLE EAST, BUT NOT RIGHT HERE IN THE BAHAMAS. IS THIS WHERE WE ARE AS A SOCIETY? THIS IS DEEP!!!!

  18. Well, BP, its truly a sad time to be living in The Bahamas if journalists have to be afraid for their lives.

    We might as well be living in one of those war torn countries. This makes me sick to my stomach. And to think they want to make it look like suicide. Anyone who knows Omar Archer KNOWS this young man has too much to live for to try to take his own life. That is utter rubbish!!

    If they are now trying to KILL people it simply means the truth is coming out and they want to SILENCE the deliverer of such truths.

  19. We were made to understand Drama King, that a hit is out on my life [Editor of this blog] as well. Let me say now, that if ANYONE ever hear anything had happened to me, do remember this, that under NO CONDITION WHATSOEVER HAVE I EVER CONSIDERED IN MY MIND, the thought TO COMMIT SUICIDE!

    However it happens GOD FORBIDS, it would definitely be MURDER. Murder committed by these jungle killing attackers now across New Providence, who see to quiet the message of TRUTH!

    When Omar was shot, we initially heard reports that his gunshot wound was a possible self inflicted wound. That was the beginning of a NASTY roamer and another LIE! Nassau is filled with street killers, protected by persons in uniform who aide serious nefarious activity.

    Bahamas Press however remain fearless in our mission, and will not be INTIMIDATED in ANY WAY, now that journalist, judges and prosecutors are being sought by killers in The Bahamas.

  20. Oh My God !! I am in total shock !! I cannot believe Archer was shot!!

    BP I pray the belief behind Archer’s shooting is wrong. For if it is right, we must realize we are in SERIOUS trouble in this country.
