Letter: We have to put a stop to this!

Published on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

Please allow me space in your newspaper to write a few lines.

First of all, I would like to commend the Cayman Islands government for taking the authority that they had all along but only took advantage of since the brutal killing of my grandson, Jeremiah Barnes, for having drivers remove the tint from their cars.

There are still a lot of cars with dark tint and I would like for us, the public, to have a special line to call in the number for these cars. Perhaps some of the owners of these vehicles do not know that they should not have dark tint on their vehicles; perhaps we can try to get the message across.

Also, I would still like to know why some of our police cars still have tint on them I would also like to advise our government that anyone who would kill an innocent child does not deserve to live.

We, the citizens of these islands, do not deserve to have these deranged persons living amongst us. We have to put a stop to this!

Too many people have been murdered and permanently injured. Too much of this has been going on for too long.

I am asking the parents of these individuals to please have a serious talk with their children and ask them to please stop with the violence as it is not the answer to their problems. Let them solve their problems without weapons of destruction. With violence, they could also become permanently injured or killed. While this will not solve their problems, this would definitely be a solution to the problem.

The Cayman Islands government and the people of the Cayman Islands must not take the passing of my dear and beloved Jeremiah for granted.

Last, but also of great importance, and I had written about years ago, please let us place some pedestrian crossings on the Seven Mile Beach road. With all the activity on this main road, we need pedestrian crossings placed at strategic locations. This will serve to avoid accidents and help to reduce the constant speeding.

Thank you all, as I pray for a safer Cayman now and in the future.
