WARNING -- GRAPHIC IMAGES
It's been bad in the Bahamas lately. The body count is rising daily. There is murder, mayhem, gruesome deaths and violent gunplay in addition to the robberies. The country is going to hell in a hand cart.
Here are some stories. Warning, graphic images even though I have blurred the gory details, they are still disturbing.
A victim was stabbed to death over a plate of food. He was known to police.
Shot in the head at a food joint.
Death by drowning -- a woman who was a straw vendor -- at Potters Cay. There have been several drownings lately at Potters Cay.
More gun play in the streets.
The body of a naked woman is pulled out of the bushes near a church.
The socio-economic fabric of the Bahamas is unraveling. Jobs in banking are going elsewhere. The tourism product is outdated and declining. What is left of the middle class is shrinking. Unemployment is at an all time high. Government debt is deemed at the dangerous level. Violence on a per capita basis is some of the highest in the world. The islands in the sun are not a happy place.
