      Great point... We need to do whatever to get a hold of these disillusioned youths and shake some sense into them! All this legal work available in Bermuda, no need to shoot each other over small-time drug money! Look around at all the foreign guest workers we have in Bermuda. Take the hospital employees as just one example...

      These young boys are not the big drug money makers, they still work for someone who makes thousands/millions off of them, so they might as well get REAL jobs!

      A very important question is "How do we get them back into the fold and make them productive, law-abiding citizens, instead of menaces to society?"

Anyways there are plenty of good positions here in Bermuda currently filled by non-Bermudians for various reasons, one of which is some Bermudians would rather be lazy and be drug dealers!

              Agreed some people speak out about things when they happen some don't that's why some things seem more serious than others not what they look like. Bad girls comment was completely racial motivated. This attitude furthers the "why should anyone help anyone else" atmosphere in Bermuda and shows our kids great examples of dysfunctional society for them to emulate like the two guys shooting people in the article. Negativity spreads faster that you think.

              LOL are the BPS moving faster than in the aforementioned incidences. No same pace. Is someone more likely to speak up hopefully they will but doubtful.

    Bermuda police are always tightlipped about these serious crimes , when they should be asking the public for help on the radio right after the incident to look out for people fitting a certain description going in what ever direction . Always waiting to long to let the public know whats going on when the bad boys are long gone . Show what those cameras recorded in the area for the public in that area at the time can remember if they saw them Bad Boys getting away on which roads.

      I have to agree with Mark,as we know talk radio has become the fastest way of reaching the masses at any given point during the business hours of the day and the evenings,so if an incident has occured making it known via talk radio is the quickest way of notifying the public as well as people being able to be on the look out for suspisious circumstances or culprits.cctv is good to a degree but does not seem to work as well as proposed and i wonder if we the tax payer are getting good for our buck and is there other camera technologies that are far advance then that we have,because if you look at the footage of some of the past cases,i think it is poor quality and i have seen better footage in othe juristictions,making me believe we can do better by investing in greater quality equiptment that allows us to see ther culprits much clearer or the vehichle used in such crimes.all in all Bermudians are getting involved and will step up to the plate if given the much needed protection that allows them to speak without being a target themselves.

      err i disagree..

      i think tight lipped just means not giving out details, not that they arent looking for public input.

      does the public really need a solicitation for information? If you saw a shooting are you really just going to wait until the police ask for the public's help before you say anything? if so then we have a whole lot of big issues on this island.

      We found out about this within minutes via online. Its a news article. Are people honestly waiting for an explicit invite from police to give info? seriously?

          with all due respect, the count of black votes vs where shootings are is irrelevant in my opinion.

          Perhaps the plp is stacking constituencies... but i think thats a totally seperate debate.

          Shootings are not black on black because of the skin color. They are black on black because of the neighborhoods/people involved who just happen to be black.

          i do NOT equate PLP voters (if thats what youre hinting at) to these stupid thugs that shoot at people. I think, as much as people like to bash PLP supporters (i like to fault them too), they are representative of the current "gang warfare" and to associate loughlands or any govt "affrodable housing" as a "projects" is pretty far fetched.

    @ No longer angry and my other concerned friends. A significant number of these gang members do have legitimate jobs and are relatives and friends to many law abiding people. They attend school in Bermuda or abroad and can be seen plying their trade in full view of others.

    I agree that they may not make as much money as the BIG FISH, however it's significant enough to keep them on the street at odd hours of the day and night and allow them to have huge rolls of cash to buy cars, furnish houses for their girlfriends and send the younger gang members and sometimes themselves to college. How do you get a young man under 21 to walk away from making $100 dollars or more an hour while drinking booze and working at their own pace to making less that half that amount under constraints?

    The BIG FISH needs to be taken care of as well

    Lol@cant watch's comment!!! (cant catch a cold) humor is good in these trying times

    At the end of the day, these guys choose to do what they want irrespective of the consequences they may face, whether its death or prison. When are we going to start making the hard choices to deal with the problems we now face?

SMH and to keep blaming this on black people as always using racism. That comment was not needed and had nothing to do with the headline story.

    So, consider this: God is not a person... God is 'everything that is' and so, arguably, creates all, good and bad... but that creation includes all that WE do and say (and even think), both individually and collectively, resulting in heaven and hell. The attribution to God as being accountable for everything relieves us of our responsibility and needs to be examined.

    It's a pity to come onto Bernews, or any website and read about violence. What's even more disturbing is the lack of togetherness the island has. What ever happened to unity? I am presently in University, and I can say it has been anything but easy to find the money to up and leave...so Saltus student...that's easier said then done. I've been to government for 4 years in a row, 5 actually, and banks for loans... because I didn't have all A's means I am not worthy for a 2nd chance to make something of myself? && even so, what jobs are there for graduates now days? So please spare your two cents. Easy for you to speak up about education...you attend Saltus! But that isn't the issue on this article. I REALLY didn't understand the PLP comment, quite frankly I don't care WHO is elected...at one point of time someone will ALWAYS become greedy! Again not the issue...WHERE DID THE RELIGION THING COME INTO PLAY? CAN WE STAY ON TOPIC HERE?! HOWEVER TO POINT OUT IN MY OPINION (as we all are entitled to our own) GOD IS GOOD!!! Why does it have to be a nanny that gets a stray bullet? It could be anyone...a mother pushing her baby in a stroller, a child riding a bike, or playing in their yard...BUT again that isn't the issue. There are so many valid points on this discussion. Why is it so shocking because it is in Paget or daylight? Wasn't it shocking on Good Friday? Where are all the witnesses to that shooting on Good Friday?! As adults I see you bickering with people namely Terry, when as adults we should know ignorance is bliss! Just like the youth who are restless, divided, and becoming deviants, the more we bicker with one another we become restless, divided, and the island will only perish! It's true the parents, or lack of parenting plays a significant role. Let's not break this incident up to black or white, or try to incorporate how serious one gun violence incident is from another. Or any other incidents of crime for that matter. The issue is that this doesn't apply to one person...it's OUR island...how can you let a minority take away the freedom we once had?!

Because Saltus attends Saltus, you think it's easy? I know plenty of parents and children who sacrifice for the opportunity of having a better education.

      You attended private school off of bursaries, not solely from your parents and their wealth. Yes of course I am assuming that the Saltus student isn't on bursaries, but I am pretty positive that is not the case. Please don't get me wrong, I attended private school, as stated that wasn't the issue and my issue was that education had no relevance in why the shooter behaved as he did. You have educated people who also do ignorant things. Saltus also said that if they were educated they would have jobs, but as you said as well almost everybody is struggling, looking for jobs, hence in MANY cases education is irrelevant to jobs especially when you still see many expats in high positions. I know many friends who have successfully completed BA's and Masters and who are deemed "over qualified"... Needless to say this is way off topic.
