Every week there are a number of very Interesting stories that paint a vivid picture of what is going on in The Bahamas. I try to read the papers on a daily basis.
Below is a list of stories that I think are among the most interesting and informative;
Man this kinda foolishness need to stop! And its sad how this case doesn’t seem to be getting National attention. This is the kind of case that should be in bold print in the daily papers. But just like with Randy Fraser, the papers seem to be hesitant to give this case the spot light it deserves.
In my article how to avoid getting murdered, I kinda jokingly listed “don’t be a witness” as one of things to avoid doing. Well from what I’m learning Mr Percentie was to be a crown witness in another murder case. Was this the reason for his death? If it was this is a serious attack on our justice system.
This is a tragic story that is unfolding every day. As soon as I heard of this I said to myself I hope this isn’t a murder suicide. Now I hear of a letter being found. Sad. But there are still a lot inconsistencies about this whole incident, like where is the father?
In a weird political drama, earlier this week Rodney Moncur announced the formation of a committee to elect him to the Bain & Grants Town Seat. Many were confused, but I along with others congratulated him. By mid-week came the announcement that Mr. Moncur was indeed the DNA candidate for the constituency, from Mr. Moncur. By end of week The DNA issued a denial, saying the announcement was premature… hmm whats going on, really?
Is it time to panic yet? Many Bahamians are blissfully unaware of how serious our economic problems are. What is confusing them I think is that they believe most of our issues are as a result of the global economy crisis, and truth be told that is playing a major role. But I and many other believe that there have been grave mismanagement of our economy by the current administration.
I wrote an article with that title last year. And it’s still a very relevant question today. It came to my mind as I read the story of a 20-year-old police officer who has been on an armed robbery and terror spree across Nassau. I also have to wonder, what is the vetting process for officers before they are allowed to join the force?
These are the stories that caught my eye in the last week. Please let me know if you think I missed one
