Since i hav not yet heared from Anita please send her a message and aks her
how the Bahamas can accept rape and expect people to come and visit this
place without any care about the security of tourists!!!

I dont know how you see this but i have asked the press office of the Bahamas why the Bahama allow rapes and crime over and over again!

Please look at this case and let me know how the Bahamas can allow things like this to happen over and over again.

Dont you think thge Bahamas are impossible as a tourist destination?

Who wants to travel to the Bahamas??

If you want to know more about the Bahamas and why they accept this horror write to:

Anita Johnson-Patty

Em I'm so sorry that this had to happen to you, or even to any of the vulnerable tourists for that matter.I know how difficult it is for you to wipe out this horrible incident from your mind. But I am happy to see that you wish to bring in justice for this heinous act. I just cannot imagine how people can act in this manner. If Bahama wishes to attract more tourists then why not see to the security and safety aspect of the tourists. People should not be pawns to be abused in the hands of criminals. Hope the Bahama government will solve these problems as early as possible before any other tourists fall a prey to this form of criminality. Em my prayers are with you always. Please remain as strong as ever and do not worry ok? Noted and signed!

Impunity! You know that Shakira, Miguel Bose, Alejandro Sanz and other artists have invested on those Islands! The Bahamas do not deserve to have those great singers living there! It is a Shame!

Petition signed in January. Em, Sorry for what has happened. It does not worth to visit that place. I may not be raped, but perhaps robbed. Hawaii is a much better place to visit.

Dear Em, we all support you in what you are trying to do to prevent harm to others and that we are very sorry this terrible thing was done to you.
And it is not right that they did not help you to achieve justice whilst you were in the Bahamas!
They should have gone and arrested these foul brutes on the spot!
You also have my respect as well for your courage, though this never should have been done to you in the first place..
They will be sorry for this one day!

Em I'm so sorry you were hurt, we need to send the LDP down there. The cops here are over doers. They thrive on action which in this case would be a good thing. Wasn't the FBI involved? If not why not?

Wednesday March 19, 2008, 4:18 am
Already signed. Noted. Very pleased to see you put this up as news to get more people to sign. You are a brave person. Well done & as Manny said 'we are here for you' TY
