    Where are the crude remarks for this ‘alledged murderer?’ Is it because this case is NOT as SENSATIONAL as the ‘gang war?’ Murder is MURDER Bermuda!! Does NO ONE care that Miss James was a VERY RESPECTED and RESPECTFUL woman who gave of her time and money to those in NEED???

    Where are the JUDGES who have sooooo much to say of the other ‘alledged murderers?”

    It is time to UNITE BERMUDA – Black + white and those who are multi-racial, young + old, Pretty + unattractive, those who have done you wrong + those you are jealous of,

    Bermuda my plea is SIMPLE STOP JUDGING and WAIT facts!! EVERYONE DESRVES a FAIR TRIAL!
    To those who will REPLY to my QUESTIONS there is a saying you may have yet to hear: “Save it for your momma!!” If you had something to say you should have typed it already!

      Refreshing to see an unbiased comment that is not judgemental leading the way.

    I know this trial is hurting Ms. James’s family, and my heart goes out to you.

    I just don’t understand. Why was this woman killed? Why so much killing? We need the death penalty, we shouldn’t have to live with murderers.
