Princess Margaret Hospital reports that 519 people were shot and stabbed – a stark contrast to the 10 attempted murders recorded by the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) for the same period.
Don’t mind the fancy clothes and flowery speech; some in the PLP are nothing more than “glorified –––––”. In fact, a suitable acronym for some of this “greasy” hand crew should be: Promises, Lies, Pillage.
Five hundred and nineteen people were shot or stabbed in 2013 according to official Princess Margaret Hospital statistics – yet only 10 attempted murders were recorded by the Royal Bahamas Police Force for the same period.
Christie is sending mixed signals to a country already overwhelmed by crime. The PM “obviously miscalculated the moral climate of a nation who is sick and tired of the unacceptable level of lawlessness and the attempt by the government to codify this criminality into public law.”
Perry Christie is quickly developing a legacy of lies, deception and broken promises as he now schemes to go against the thousands of Bahamians who voted NO to legalizing web shops.
Even staunch supporters now admit that the PLP’s election promise to “put Bahamians first” was nothing but a pack of lies to deceive voters.
A quotation from Sir Walter Scott’s poem of 1828: “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…” is applicable to two stories making news today.
Instead of admitting that Detention Center guards abused Cuban detainees, Bahamas Tourism Minister Obie Wilchombe is foolishly trying to paint the Miami-based Cuban exile group Democracy Movement as enemies of all Bahamians.
In typical fashion, the Bahamas government lied and failed to live up to promises made to Cuban-Americans by repatriating 24 Cubans to Havana, including eight offered asylum in Panama after accusing a guard of beating them at a Nassau detention center.
