Crime Pays in the Bahamas
Taken together, these two propositions concerning demand and supply and the human need to turn a profit in a capitalist-oriented society neatly explains how it comes to be that people can be pushed to that point where they steal copper wire from the Broadcasting Corporation of the Bahamas; or for that matter, when a thief could do the same in Grand Bahama, and seemingly [at least to this date] get away with the heist.
Crime – simply put – pays.
Evidently, while the wages of sin might be death, there is no reason to believe that crime does not pay. Indeed, there is evidence galore here in these Bahamas to support and sustain the conclusion that crime invariably brings with it handsome rewards.crime
