How about not doing a rushed dive, but incorporating this as part of our national security plan. We're surrounded by water...what about training a civilian force for the eventuality? And of course if conditions are too dangerous no one goes. Even if the RBDF had perfect conditions, they can't be everywhere.

You know @sickened might have an idea. On this island the government never has enough resources to do anything. Perhaps you could work on a trained civilian force to do this exact thing. You have training exercises for these eventualities. No haphazard rescue attempts,no running into situations that are too dangerous. The call goes out and the civilian force mounts up. And the model could be used in any number of areas not just at sea, but If the assessment is made that it's too dangerous, no one goes out. There are minimal qualifications to get in and entry means you get certain incentives like VAT exemption up to a certain number. There are any number of policies you could include, ratings for which vessels are allowed in which situations etc

"*haven’t had the opportunity to look at anything except what I’ve seen in the newspapers,” the commissioner said. He suggested the Royal Bahamas Police Force would investigate the matter if presented with the information*"
As I said when the immigration chief said anyone "found" would be prosecuted....here is the police commissioner saying they're not even looking and have no intention to look unless someone asks....Minnis een ask no one to start the BPL investigation either....
nobody move nobody get hurt

These people are all over the place. Just the other day they were up and down talking about medical marijuana now they're talking about missing an opportunity in the recreational market. We are going to end up with a mess. Just like gaming, we're going to end up with little children and neophytes strung out on drugs and THEN try to figure out how to fix it.

The guy Trump nominated for AG was investigated for a fraud that took millions from budding entrepreneurs. When lots of people looking for something and willing to lay out money there are guaranteed to be some piranhas around

Lol. You said a mouthful. In fact it would be great if every time Minnis Turnquest or Newbold speak into a mic, they say the same. Can you imagine? Lol, we'd get more sense out of Minnis and KP than anything we've heard since May 10

Now THAT is interesting. Way to stand out Mrs Komalafe! Hope to see you as leader with some candidates of substance. The country needs sensible people.

How could they report that the deficit has shrunk if people still asking the govt for their money?

More people who can't tolerate corruption while it going on all around them
*He said anyone found breaking the law will face the consequences, no matter who they are.*
The solution to this in the Bahamas is to NOT find them. Remember how the police kept staring at the spinning wheel but couldn't find any evidence of gambling? Now today the gaming rep tells us their 600+ "LEGACY" locations have squatter's rights
