Acting Commissioner of Police Leamond Deleveaux appealed to young Bahamian men to resolve their conflict amicably.
Deleveaux said, “the courts have their function. The police have their function. We investigate, arrest, put before the courts. We object to bail in most, if not all, cases. The courts have their role and I’m not prepared to deal or interfere with the role of the courts. We have our concerns but what we do see is we see every single, almost on a daily basis, once a person is placed on bail for a serious offence i.e. murder etc., there is a likelihood that that person will be shot or possibly killed.”
Deleveaux’s comments came after a man on bail for attempted murder was shot and killed outside a gym in the Harbour Bay Shopping Center on Monday evening.
