Someone wants to kill this preacher, Rev. Dr. Simeon B. Hall, head of the Crime Commission in The Bahamas. Bishop Hall has received death threats for his speaking out on murder in The Bahamas. The Bishop has gone on record demanding the authorities to solve a pair of murders in country asking them to stop withholding information. Bahamaspress.com is seriously concerned about another murder however, that took place in Eleuthera, where a 65 year old church mother, Mrs. Cates was found brutally murdered. Her killer is still on the loose running wild in the country, and no one is talking about her brutal death which occurred in her peaceful home late last year.
Nassau, The Bahamas – Chicago’s city mayor Mr. Richard Daley has called an emergency meeting with his city officials in the United States, because the second largest city simply reported some 40 shooting incidents in a single day. Now this huge city with millions of persons has just 40 shootings (NOT MURDERS) and the mayor of the town calls it a crisis.
But here in Nassau, The Bahamas 40 shootings is a daily occurrence. In fact, if we look closer at this in the detailed reports of shooting in The Bahamas – if someone is recording properly – The Bahamas has almost experienced beyond 40 shootings that have resulted in nearly 40 murders for the year 2008.
What was amazing in last night’s report is that whilst ZNS TV did report the fatal shooting of a taxi driver at the popular eatery, Subway in Palmdale, and later (2 hours later) the fatal stabbing at a house party in Kemp Road on Saturday, The national TV station never once mentioned what was the current murder count. Nor could they account how many shooting incidents had occurred on Saturday alone.
Chicago’s mayor Daley knows he has a problem with person shooting guns, but here in The Bahamas, as the head of the Crime Commission is now under death threats for speaking about murders, we in The Bahamas know we have a problem with murders but continue to bury our heads in the sand.
In The Bahamas people are dying like flies, murdered by guns! With 50,000 warrant of arrest out for persons in this society and almost 5,000 once licensed guns out on the streets, Baghdad city appears to be a more secure place.
Since the public cannot get the numbers of persons that have died this week in the country, we at Bahamas Press would know for certain according to reports some five persons were murdered this past week alone.
We believe ZNS is still upset, having had to divert from their week long forest fire story. A great deflection from what is really happening in the country.
Forest Fires have been broadcast as a top story on ZNS for days now. What is the national station hiding? The fires clearly hide what is really happening in the country, people dying at fast food restaurants and right in their homes. Is murder a crime anymore in The Bahamas?
