  1. The Minister claiming Guyana is safe. Everyday you have Bandits terrorising innocent and hardworking citizens. Wake up Minister and start doing something about this spiralling crime scourge before inviting people to come to Guyana.

  2. I understand and agree policemen can’t be on the scene all the time but I can’t comprehend the fact they are never around. It seems the lawmen don’t have pride in their jobs.. Can’t catch these thieves before striking again. The police must make these crooks be afraid of them… Do what it takes so copycats are scared… This is too rampant, punishment should be very severe… They should feel the cruel treatment the victims felt. This must stop!
