Sixteen tourists and two tour guides were robbed at gunpoint in Nassau, Bahamas on November 20, 2009. Bob Arno was in Nassau at the time and interviewed one victim. Reggie Ferguson told you everything was under control. The Director General of Tourism told you they comforted the guests. We at BP want you to listen to the trauma as it unfolded by the victim.

  1. THE EDITOR IS CORRECT IN THE PROCESS HE WENT THROUGH WITH HIS PHONE. BUT THE POLICE HAVE A PROTOCOL THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH AS IT RELATES TO GETTING INFORMATION FROM BTC. REGRETABLY THIS TAKES FAR TO LONG ON THE PART OF BTC TO GET BACK TO THE POLICE IN ORDER FOR ANY INFORMATION GOTTEN FROM THEM TO STAND IN COURT.

    THE OTHER ISSUE I HAVE WITH THIS GENTLEMAN IS THAT HE ISVERY UNGRATEFUL. POLICE RESPONDED TO THAT MATTER IN A TIMELY FASHION,AS FAR AS THE REPORT BEING TAKEN, IT IS NOT A RUSH THING, IT HAS TO BE DONE RIGHT. AND TO MAKE THOSE COMMENTS ABOUT THE POLICE IS VERY SAD AND DISTURBING. BUT GOD KNOWS AND IS STILL ON THE THRONE.

  2. These people always trying to impress people with their lies talking about they have everything under control, which couldn’t be the furthest thing from the truth.

  3. Now from experience, I’ve had a similar experience with my phone being stolen. If there is an officer on the GESTAPO ROyal Bahamas Police Force who has real skills, they would have these criminals already in custody. If they would only cease and desist from tapping BP’s editor phone and begin the tracking phones collected by these THIEVES, the Bahamas would be a much safer place.

    If they had taken the cellphone number of this man, the GESTAPO police could easily trace the location of this phone right here in Nassau. They can also monitor incoming and outgoing calls from the man’s cell and identify persons making the calls; incoming and outgoing.

    Back in 2003 this writer’s phone was also stolen. I went to BTC and had them do a trace/tracking of my numbers. One of the numbers called from my stolen phone lead to a series of numbers into Grand Bahama. That number I did dial and to my surprise the person contacted was the uncle of the THIEF! I could have told him when he was called, Day, Time and from which area here in Nassau. He then after seeing how concise and detail my information was confirmed that it was indeed his nephew and that he will contact him immediately and his failure to do so would have resulted in his immediate arrest by covering up the crime. He contacted his nephew immediately and within hours I was told I could collect my phone.

    I never involved the police with my own investigation.

    My phone was quickly returned to be by an EMPLOYEE of Sandals Royal Bahamian Hotel. I give this story to say, if police in the Bahamas wanted to catch criminals they can, but most of the time, the police themselves know who the criminals are and I believe are profiting of CRIMES now underway in the Bahamas!

    WE NEED CHANGE!
