Teen arrested in probe of murdered American

Police arrested a teenager who they believe may have information on the murder of an American visitor on Sunday, Assistant Commissioner Anthony Ferguson said yesterday.
Antone Bastian, aka 'Lolly', 19, of Abraham Street, off Kemp Road, was one of two teenagers police were looking for.
Ferguson said police were also hoping to talk to Leo Bethel, 18, of Balls Alley.
Wanted posters were issued yesterday for both men during a press conference at the Central Detective Unit (CDU).
Ferguson said Bastian was arrested around noon.
Kyle Bruner, 34, of Chicago, Illinois, was shot during an armed robbery near the intersection of Mackey Street and East Bay Street, police said.
According to preliminary reports, two men followed Bruner, another man and two women after they left Hammerheads Bar and Grill on East Bay Street around 4:30 a.m.
Police said the men, one of whom was armed, confronted Bruner and his friends on Mackey Street and demanded their belongings.
During the hold-up, one of the women reportedly got into a scuffle with one of the assailants.
Police said Bruner attempted to confront the gunman and was shot in the neck.
He died on the scene.
Police have pledged to increase their patrols in the wake of Bruner's murder.
"This is a very unfortunate incident," Ferguson said. "We as members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force are very concerned whenever somebody is killed in such a way as the U.S. resident was killed on Sunday morning.
"...I can say that members of the public will see more of us and the criminals will be feeling [our presence] much more. Bahamians need to come together and provide the assistance that is necessary.
"The police can not do it alone. We must understand that this is our country. We have to be responsible and to ensure that the handful of people who are running around and robbing people and shooting people can not continue [to do so].
"So we want to encourage people to provide us with information on those people who are considered armed and dangerous."
Bruner, who was a boat mate on the Liberty Clipper, which was docked at Nassau Yacht Haven, will be missed by his crew mates, according to Captain Chris Shaw.
Shaw told The Nassau Guardian yesterday that the Lady Clipper set sail yesterday.
He said it is sad that the crew had to leave without Bruner.
"We are still shocked that he's gone," Shaw said.
Police also identified the second man who was murdered in a separate incident on Sunday morning as Wiscally Genois, 22, of Podoleo Street.
Genois was killed around 2 a.m. at the East Street South Shopping Plaza.
Police said he was standing outside a business along with a group of people when he was approached and shot multiple times by a man.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said the shooter ran east behind the plaza into the Joan's Heights area.
It is believed that he later escaped the area on a motorcycle.
Ferguson said police were following significant leads, but appealed to members of the community who may have information on either murder to contact them at 911, 919, Crimestoppers at 328-TIPS or CDU at 502-9991.

The gambling issue

I would like to address my misgivings with the purposed referendum on gambling. First I don't for one minute subscribe to the notion that gambling is wrong from a religious standpoint. While I do appreciate that one must be a good steward of his money, as a student of the Bible myself I have never seen a scripture that condemns the practice outright.
Perhaps I am wrong on this one. If I am, please correct me. I am open and would love for the religious community now carrying the anti-gambling banner to point out book, chapter and verse. Having said that, I will say this: You cannot legislate morality. So all the laws in the world will never change a man's mindset. The last time I checked the Commonwealth of The Bahamas was a free, democratic and sovereign nation. Adult citizens should and must be allowed to carry on their lives as they deem fit, as long as their actions are legal and don't infringe on another's human rights. Life is full of choices and each individual must chose what is right for him.
Gambling is now, and has been for a long time, a present social decay for those not able to handle its entangling web. With this in mind, I employ our government to require monies from the greatest benefactors of this industry to invest in some sort of counseling, or gambling anonymous if you will.
This group should not be associated with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution.
There are compulsive gamblers in this country who now struggle with the bug of Lady Luck and desperately want to stop. People are hurting now, and will continue to hurt whether this bill passes or not. These monies of course would be beyond taxes on revenue earned by the industry.
British American Tobacco and Philip Morris - two of the largest makers of tobacco products - invest millions of dollars a year to help those wanting to quit smoking do so. Theirs would be the horrid television ads you see, encouraging people not to begin smoking or to stop smoking. Now, one would argue that the investment seems a bit hypocritical; and while this may be true, I say shouldn't the major contributor to the mess be also made to help with its clean up?
I have no doubt that this bill will pass and I am just as confident that the problem for its passing on our society will increase all the more. Just as with drinking, smoking and other legal vices, gambling should be approached with caution. Just yesterday I saw a local commercial that spoke about all the good things the number houses do for the community. The commercial painted a picture so perfect, I knew soon I would see unicorns, butterflies and lollypops floating across the screen. What this commercial didn't show, however, is the family left lacking because one or both parents carelessly spent their entire earnings on a "chance". It didn't show the people who sit in the web shops spinning for hours while neglecting the commitments made to God, family, job and community. It didn't show the people who were targets of criminals aware of their recent windfall. No, this picture was perfectly framed. I was almost prepared to line up to the polls right then with my X in the yes box. Now, I don't want to seem anti- or pro-gambling. I am indifferent to the entire issue. What I am is pro-community, pro-family, pro-Bahamian. What I am is pro-survival.
Beyond anything, we must be honest about the issue and to ourselves be true. Let us require of the number houses some of that money earned to clean up the ugly where it exists.
