    Well done on the update again Bernews. Lets hope the evidence is enough to get another conviction. Colford R. I. P.

  2. Way To Go says:

    This is great news, considering the circumstances. I pray that someone will be brought before the courts for this cowardly yet heinous and malicious act ! RIP Colford, you will always be remembered !

    My understanding is that this is yet another case of mistaken identity. These guys are quite willing to shoot first and ask questions later, making them extremely dangerous human beings. I believe it is time to reinstate the death penalty because surely, people this this don’t deserve to live amongst us.

    • Malachi says:

      oops!…should read “people like this don’t…….”

    • White Jesus says:

      I agree Malachi! The most inhumane thing we can do is corrupt the sanctity of human life by resorting to putting people in cages like animals. In fact, even animals should not be in cages. It reconstitutes the human being into an animal. We should vow never to resort to this as a means of punishment. Rather, we should agree that if someone murders, rapes, molests, or imports drugs, they should be executed! It is better to put them in the ground at rest than to have murderers, rapists and child molesters walking the streets with us.

    Proof posotive that the BPS and public are working hard together.

    Let’s hope that we can get to the bottom of all the other unsolved murders while we’re at it.

    Thank you Bernews…..and “cellphone Man”.

  7. Spikes says:

    Good job BPS you are doing a fantastic job.

    • Dawn says:

      I agree. Great job BPS. I hope all responsible are brought to justice- to the fullest extent of the law.

  8. John Does says:

    The police are doing a good job, lost hope the courts do the same.

    Next problem is what to do with all these thugs. Westgate must be getting real full, and to be honest its not like a real hardcore overseaqs prison. I would like to send them to a prison like Sing Sing for the rest of their lives. These real hardcore crims would treat them like their girlfriend and they will be paying for the rest of their lives.

  9. Sarah says:

    A hurrah for the BPS for making such an amount of progress so quickly, and if the men are found to be guilty in a court of law, then I hope they will be treated severely.

    • Brasco says:

      Good for the Police so far…I’ll give them props when these idiots are brought to justice and serve 99 years of Taser-ism!

  10. DARRIN DIZZLE says:

    Bring back hanging!

    • White Jesus says:

      Can we start a group of citizens who want to see hanging reinstated?

  11. Fed Up! says:

    We’ll done BPS. Job well done! Let’s hope these arrests lead to successful convictions. If found guilty they deserve to spend the rest of their lives behind bars!

    • White Jesus says:

      Then we have to pay to feed and entertain them for ‘the rest of their lives’ while they do nothing but eat sleep, fart and socialize. They deserve to be in the ground and nothing less. Why should we suffer to see their pathetic faces again? Jail already takes life away so why not just seal the deal and put em in a noose?
