    Shame on them for behaving like savages on such a cool occasion.

        Yep. People who cannot appear in public without behaving violently are savages.

  4. Cheeshums says:

    A few bad apples spoil the bunch. As usual. I was there didn’t see anything but heard was some useless drama. Way to ruin a good thing over something so petty. They need a good cut tail.

    • smh says:

  5. A says:

    U SILLY FOLK ! TRICKS R 4 KIDS !!! GROW UP, LIFE IS SHORT !! No one is promised tomorrow, why can’t we as a people get along and enjoy the PEACE thats provided FREE !!!! Get a grip BDA !!!!

  9. Please says:

    I watched the police stand there and allow these boys to fight! They only intervened once they had separated! Get it together BPS its a shame it had to end so early

    • Confused says:

      My girlfriend and I drove past last night at about 11:45 to what can only be described as a mini riot involving tons of what appeared to be kids (14-18). Now I fully understand that an event like beachfest is hard to police, what I cannot understand is why there was only 2 police (reserve) officers present who look like they just wanted to run and hide in the bushes! Secondly, where the hell are these “kids” parents. I hope to see this mentality slowly fade away here but like government corruption, seems to be here to stay. Big Ups to Chewstick and all the organizers for trying to throw a safe and best of all FREE event.

    stupid ignorant lil b$#tards!!! how stupid can u be to want to go tp a fun peaceful vibe an ruin it for stupidity…somebody needs to expose them and let the community take hold of them n give them a bare a** whippin!!!!

  11. Mooin says:

    The thing is most of the people starting trouble looked to be under the age of 17. Maybe even 14.

    Ended up ruining the party for the people who wanted to drink[legally], dance and have a good time.

    Maybe Beachfest should have an age limit.

  12. Cricket Bat (Original) says:

    How sad that the actions of a few a**holes ruined this event for everyone else.

    All I can say is, “Grow up you little f**kers”. Or stay the f**k away so normal decent people can have a good time. Go fight your ignorant gang war somewhere else.

    Cupid stunts!

  13. Drumma says:

    lets just bring back public hanging. Scare the fu*k out of these little shi*s.

    • Mistaken Identity says:

      you cant hang people for fightin dumbass

  14. someone says:

    In the UK to enter most clubs, you place your ID on a machine which has data whether you’ve been in a fight before or caused a disturbance. If you have, you can’t enter. Bermuda can do this. they are quick and easy. Keep the rift raff out.

  15. OverlyConcerned says:

    Only in a Bermuda… You can’t even have a public party on arguably the biggest holiday in Bermuda without some asses spoiling it. I hope police locked them up for the weekend. They should make examples of these fools.

    Asshats the lot of them.

  16. Mistaken Identity says:

    As a response to the two children that were erronously arrested, to CLARIFY they where not involved in any fight, but merely running like everyone else when the fight broke out and bottles were flying. Despite the fact that the public at the beach intervened and told the officers these were not the kids who were involvd in he fight……

    This really proves how Bermuda is so negative minded and easily to judge and the reason why the public does not want to assist with the law…. perfect example!!

    To those who have responded negatively – you really need to think before you write especially if you do not know what took place at the beach.

    Their father was there on the scene trying to get to his sons which the police would not allow. These kids don’t even go out often and very much come from an extremely strict supportive family. They have been humiliated and embarrassed from a mistaken identity situation not to mention other hiccups that was encountered. However; they have been told to keep their heads up as young men, let this “bad situation” be a lesson learned and not let it deter them in moving forward or pull them in a negative direction.

    This is another example of the innocent suffering for the guilty, however it is left in the Lord’s hands to those who know they did wrong, and watched as two innocent kids were arrested.

    The Lord does not Sleep!
