  1. When will Bahamians wake up and accept that it is US who are aware of the persons committing these attrocious crimes in this nation. The government and the police cannot fight the frustration of the people. This situation has been coming for many years, and the politicians who want to place the blame on the government should be ashamed of themselves. Crime is a family, community and national problem, in that order.
    Let us be true to ourselves and stop the blame game. Only parents/family can really have the maximum influence on those of their members who are committing crimes.
    I would like to see the politicians in this upcoming season PUT THEIR MONEY WHERE THERE MOUTHS ARE. GET OUT THERE AND DEVISE A PROGRAM NOW. DON’T WAIT FOR AFTER THE ELECTION. As persons putting themselves in the forefront by saying “I am capable of providing good governance to this nation” SHOW it without being elected. Then you will have given the people the confidence that you are a person who can do something for the constituency even if not elected.
    Try it!!!! You may be surprised at the result.
