2012 murder count unclear

Police have recently reclassified two killings, making the murder count for 2012 so far somewhat unclear.
According to The Nassau Guardian's records, 74 murders have occurred so far this year when taking both reclassifications into account.
However, police claim that the murder count stands at 73.
Officials were unable to accurately satisfy this disparity yesterday.
The disparity has only come to light during the past week.
On Sunday, July 8, police records, as well as those of The Guardian, pegged the murder count at 72 for the year, after three murders occurred that weekend.
Since then, three more murders have occurred: the stabbing death of Calvin Stuart, 26, in Sunridge, Grand Bahama on July 11; the shooting death of an unidentified man on Bruce Avenue West on Grand Bahama on July 12, and the shooting death of Casey Adderley, 33, on Cox Way in New Providence on July 13.
However, Superintendent Paul Rolle, who heads the Central Detective Unit (CDU) told The Guardian after those three murders occurred, that two cases which occurred prior to July 8, were reclassified as manslaughter, and the reported count of 72 murders at that time should actually have been 70.
Rolle said the May 3 stabbing death of Aldean Gibson, 25, was reclassified as a manslaughter.
Police reported that Gibson was stabbed to death by a 22-year-old woman known to him during an altercation.
The death of Rashad Williams, 22, on May 7 was also reclassified from murder to manslaughter, according to Rolle.
Williams was struck down and killed by a Honda Inspire, after he reportedly attempted to confront its occupants, who he believed shot his mother, 42-year-old Bridgette Williams, to death minutes earlier.
However, Williams' murder was removed from The Guardian's count shortly after his death and would not have been included in the July 8 count.
Therefore, even with the reclassification of Gibson's death, at least 74 murders took place so far this year, according to our records.
Yesterday, Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade claimed that, with the exception of armed robberies, that serious crimes - including murder - were down by six percent overall.
Greenslade provided no hard data to support his claim.
The information given by police also contradicts the commissioner's statement.

2013 Year in Review

The criminal element continued to unleash fury on our paradise in 2013.
In the middle of the year, police reported that murders were down 20 percent.
At the time, the murder count stood at 58 compared to the 73 murders recorded up to the same point in 2012.
Other crimes, like armed robbery and rape, also decreased. Overall, crime had decreased by over 10 percent, according to officials.
But the criminals remained busy and the fear of crime high.
In a two-week period in August, 12 people were murdered, prompting Minister of National Security Dr. Bernard Nottage to roll out a new crime plan.
On September 6, Nottage announced that all police officers on New Providence would immediately be placed on 12-hour shifts.
Additionally, he said 150 Royal Bahamas Defence Force marines would be immediately deployed to assist with the crime fight.
Nottage said police officers serving in administrative and support service capacities, and in fire services would also be deployed to the front line.
The minister said significant resources were being added to the Homicide Unit of the Central Detective Unit (CDU). The Armed Robbery Unit and Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) were also being enhanced, he said.
Nottage said that gang and turf wars had fueled the increase in violence.
In the weeks following the announcement of the new plan, murders were recorded with less frequency.
But the Police Staff Association complained that officers were fatigued and demanded compensation for the longer hours.
Eventually, the 12-hour shifts were adjusted, according to the association.
Murders and crime in general continued to be a major national concern.
On October 24, businessman Kurt McCartney, the brother of Democratic National Alliance Leader Branville McCartney, was murdered in Gambier Village.
Many other murders followed, as did multiple armed robberies and other crimes.
Police urged residents to be extra cautious.
The United States Embassy in Nassau also advised Americans living in and visiting The Bahamas to be on the alert.
When asked about crime statistics in November, Nottage said he would no longer release figures to the press as "bad things happen" after he does so.
In early December, Deputy Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis' home was invaded and he and his wife Anne Marie were held up at gunpoint.
According to police, three masked men entered Davis' home after 7 a.m. on December 9 after they assaulted Davis' chauffeur outside.
No police aides were at Davis' house at the time of the attack.
When the murder count hit triple digits in November, Prime Minister Perry Christie said the government "will do whatever it takes" to stamp out crime and decrease the fear of crime.
The killings continued.
On December 27, 11 people were shot in Fox Hill; four of the victims died.
The murders shocked the country, which in some ways was already numb to the high rate of violent crimes.
Those murders pushed the murder count for the year to just under 120.
In 2012, 111 murders were recorded.
One hundred and twenty-seven murders were recorded in 2011, a record high.

24-hour police presence for hospital

Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade has ordered round-the-clock armed police at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) following the shooting of a police officer at the facility early Saturday.
Police allege that armed robbery suspect Reginald Chase, 25, shot and critically injured the officer before terrorizing staff at the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) and escaping.
Chase, a resident of Nassau Village, was caught 15 hours later on Bimini Avenue.
"I want to acknowledge that there were concerns expressed at PMH brought to our attention by the hospital administration," Assistant Commissioner of Police Leon Bethell said.
"As a result of these concerns and as a result of the shooting of one of our officers, the commissioner of police has given directives to enhance the security at PMH.
"As of this moment, we have placed two armed police officers to provide security at PMH. They will work hand in hand with the present security system now in place at the hospital."
Bethell said police will further upgrade the security arrangement to extend to all other areas of the hospital and explained that police and members of the Public Hospitals Authority were in discussions over what would be an adequate number of officers to guard the hospital.
He pointed out that for now, officers are guarding the Accident and Emergency Department where the incident occurred.
"The employees can be assured that these officers will be in place to look out for their security," Bethell said.
President of the Bahamas Doctors Union Dr. Philip Sealy said after the shooting, security is a major concern for the staff at PMH.
"The major concerns we had were in respect to the security and I think a lot of it is being addressed immediately," he told The Nassau Guardian after a press conference on Saturday.
After the ordeal, Sealy admitted that those doctors on call at the time "are a little hesitant to return to work". However, he said the union would like to see how security at the hospital evolves.
