  1. Who wrote the report? says:

    Well done BPS.

    Hope there is not too much ignorance over the holidays.

  2. Gabbani says:

    Good throw away the key on this animal, he left this poor guy to die.

  3. Mom's Gingerbread says:

    They are getting younger and younger, these good for nothing’s

  4. dthtoo/ says:

    They don’t want to live here in peace send them packing on a one-way ticket.

    • Hair says:

      To where?? On our taxpayers money??? I don’t work for free!!!

      • dthtoo/ says:

        Hair says: To where?

        My response: Some distant shore. Compare the price of a one-way ticket to the co$t of years of detaining those stubborn, lawless beings behind concrete walls and iron bars (only to re-enter society even greater monsters and threats to human existence), and this would give taxpayers a cause to celebrate. We expel (banish) the unruly from the classrooms, homes, places of employment, and social events, then why not go one more step further – expel (banish) them from the island. Perhaps they can choose where they would like to go. After all, the whole world awaits! I guarantee you tough love examples and draconian measures such this would be a wake up call to many who may be contemplating treading the worn path of harming and/or destroying the lives of others on this island. This is when we would truly be taken seriously that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

          Why should another country be burdened with him?

          Bermuda needs to deal with its own problems.

  5. Getting tired says:

    This little so in so needs to pay for this, and not a slap on the wrist either but oh darn that means I will have to help fork out $80,000 a year to support his rump…..can you ship him and others with similar offenses to a Mexican prison, I’m sure it will cost much less for us that actually work and want to make something out of our lives. The so called prison here is a summer camp

  6. Truth is killin' me... says:

    How about his momma explain to the victim’s momma why his son has so much hatred towards her son and why he beat him within an inch of his life!?

  7. no descrimination needed says:

    I think what’s most important is that we put this hate aside of who raised this ignorant male and just start thinking about the man fighting for his life. He has a long road of recovery ahead of him and all his family need are good thoughts and positive prayers. Whoever did this may have had a reason but couldve dealt with it in a better way. But we don’t know more about what went on or what caused this. So from now on, good vibes are needed. My thoughts are with him and his family, especially his little ones who need him most during this difficult time. You’ve got a long recovery ahead of you, but you will over come any odds.

  8. not needed says:

    It doesn’t matter who raised the man who could do such a thing to another person, even if he had reasons to.
    What matters is that this man has our thoughts with him and our prayers.
    Good vibes are needed for his recovery.
    Pull through for you friends and family, we’re all rooting for you. Your little ones need you in their life and want to see you get better. You have a long road ahead of you, but you’re strong and can overcome these obstacles.

  9. The Realist says:

    If your a Pembroke man why are you in Somerset when war has clearly bin declared..not to say that I’m all for it but let’s be real. Stop actin like you don’t know what time it is. Wayadumb?!

    • Mr. B says:

      • friend says:

        Agree….no one should deserve this…and he wasnt the type of guy to get caught up in this madness…keep fighting mate as ur two boys need you…

    • just a thought says:

      seriously?? I am a Pembroke man, why should I stay out of Sandy’s?

  10. drunkenUrsula says:

    • dthtoo/ says:


      Ya betta make sure that you have plenti a toddys on hand to drink yaself into oblivion when the UBP/OBA doesn’t claim de victory. Purhaps you should get an early/head start now.

      In the meantime Um gonna vish de PLP a BIG congratulations on dere vin!

  11. Xman says:

    And the social madness continues !
    In Bermuda we talk about how dangerous other Country’s are – but we better take a look at ourselves.
    For our size and population we must rank right up there with the top 15.
    Infect I know people who feel more safer in many parts of the US,Canada,than Bermuda.
    Some parts of NewYork they very really see violent crimes such as Bayside, Freeport , Glencove , Fresh Meadows,
    Baldwin, just to name a few areas close to NYC .
    We can’t talk about New York or Jamaica no more!

  12. FormerPLPVoter says:

    This island is small you should be able to go where ever the hell you want to go… War has been declared what a joke these little punks just need to do something constructive with their lives and stop trying to be something they are not….

  13. GOD 1st says:

    @ dthtoo/ This UBP junk that you and other PLP supporters claim is false. Take a look at this governments atrocious record and mishandling of the tax payers money.By the way why doesn’t this so called transparent government give us an answer about the accountant general who is on administration leave of absence.

  14. We are now in SIMPLE season!! says:

    As a mans life sits in the balance we are happy to quarrel over a party “STOPPING” crime! Are they going to pop up on Dec. 18th wave their magic wand and irradicate all the “wrong” in the nation.

    Seriously my prayers go out to the family and friends of both people in this. Also my prayes go out for this nation that we as a people can come together to accomplish things for the betterment of the country no matter what party in “ruling”.

    • Terry says:

      It’s not the “party in “ruling”.
      It’s the MP’s.
      You know; the chosen ones.

  15. GOD 1st says:

    @ dthtoo/ UBP/OBA doesn’t the PLP have UBP members? The people see your tactics.Why doesn’t the PLP deal with the issues people face, they would rather deflect and try to distract the voters which isn’t working in your favour. State facts and look at the state of this island PLP has been at the helm for 14yrs not the OBA.
