    • @ Um Um Like,

      So the PLP are the reason these guys are shooting at each other? You can say they are to blame for the state of the island, but electioneering? So if the OBA get in, all this shooting will stop? Is this what you are telling me?

        The PLP are the current Government,they are responsible for national security.
        If they were truly serious about getting the high level of crime under control, it could be done almost over night for a place the size of Bermuda.
        They stand by idly so as not to literally "stand on the feet" of any potential voters in this deomographic.

    This is pretty BS. The island is just 21 Sq/M and you still cannot catch the criminals. Is the police inefficient or just plain lazy?

    watch "HIDDEN COLORS" there’s a fight to fight if you want to change OUR situation.......You must first seek knowledge to gain wisdom to apply to this situation.....not everyone shooting wants to shoot ..........I don’t condone any type of actions that hurts anyone but I have a better understanding and know posting on this wont change anything, marching wont change anything either..........I’m just saying watch "HIDDEN COLORS" then share it with a freind or enemy and unite real talk.

      @really though!----Yes! and there are many more cd/dvd available on island, the guy will deliver to your door..lots of education out here that is now being released for public consumption..looking forward to someone having a showing at a public venue! Young men in Bermuda definitly need to see/hear these recent dvds that are floating around, it will help them in better identifying with why they are who they are and how they can arrive at being a better person through that knowledge..

    I love how they claim "forensic evidence" confirmed shots were fired, ok they found bullet casings on the ground, we all wish they would put a little effort into finding the people who have the guns. Mr Governor how about changing the top management of this under performing department and holding them accountable to meet that goal, we all all tired of the lip service, we all know how much it costs to keep them employed. If it was a private company would the management still be working there with such a bad track record? certainly not in my industry.

    When the UBP was in years ago it was way worst than this. So please dont try sit on here and try blame the PLP.. Some of you people sɑy the same thing every single shooting.. Its called discipline and some of these boys don't have it.. The government has NOTHING to do with it! Whɑt you want them do; sit outside all of them boys houses... Puhhhh you have another thing coming.

      Was it really "way worst" than this when the UBP was in power?!? There is the mostest firearm incident on the street now than ever be four.

      I'm sure the UBP would apologize for failing to adequately educate you.

      I do not remember they island ever being like this!! To say it was worse when the UBP was in is simple idiocracy. While the blame is shared by many, please do not try to make stupid statements to defend a government who has disappointed and let down so many. The island as a whole is hurting and no one would have ever dreamed that this is what is would come to after 14 years, Get your head out of the sand and see it for what it is and stop being a stupid sheep for the sake of being loyal. It is ok to oppose or disagree and also to be disappointed with something you supported, but please stop the stupiod rhetoric.. certain problems have developed since this party has been in power, failure to launch should be their the slogan. such high hopes in 98.. so many crushed expectations.. no one could ever predicted this massacre.

        @foldgers----FYI there were riots,guns, murder,deaths(by bicycle also)discrimination, sit-downs-sit-outs, and even the British troops were brought in! there was quite a bit that occured in Bermuda when the UBP first came into power! although economically it was different, there was also the change from pounds shillings and pence to dollars and cents! lots of people had to pay for schooling and if they couldn't afford it , they stayed at home and were home schooled or self taught..There is quite a bit of history that is still not known,but people are still around that lived through the beginning years of the UBP so I would have to say that the PLPs record is not as bad if you were a part of that generation that lived through from the sixties; yes there were improvements,everything black people wanted had to be fought for especially where things should have been automatically equal--like voting--,like watching movies together,like drinking from the same water fountain, like having the choice of jobs ect,. However coupled with the worldwide recession, and the governments lavish spending its no comparison to the rights that were fought for during the UBPs first years,so can you imagine how people were feeling! back then they took their fight to the street!and change came about! although we are economicaly challenged we are not as oppressed!

      When the UBP was in it was way worse? Nonsense. You would go years without a sungle shooting or gun being fired. Now it's every day. The PLP is weak on crime. I remember in the last election the PLP complaining about UBP election plans to deal with crime. The PLP doesn't give a rats ___ about crime.
