The Bahamas is not experiencing a crime crisis, but a social crisis, according to Reverend C.B. Moss, leader of Bahamas Against Crime.

Moss served as the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Freeport’s weekly luncheon on Thursday where he addressed the escalating rate of violent crime in The Bahamas.


“Crime is not the problem,” Moss said. “Crime is the manifestation of the problem. When you see crime, so many things have already gone wrong. Crime is just the evidence of those things gone wrong.”


He claimed that the majority of the Bahamian population is looking at the “crime issue” in reverse; seeking to fight crime has become the focus instead of tackling the issues that exists on a social level.
