    • mmmhm says:

      well whatever they are they need to go somewhere!!!!

      who cares what you call them, gangster, thugs, spoiled brats etc. the point still remains that they are a harm to bermuda and its people!!!

      what we call them doesn’t matter.

      i tired of people like you down playing the situation because you dont think they are real gansters.

      real gangs or not, they are killing ppl. PERIOD!

  5. Wondering says:

    They should lock him up then for refusing to make a complaint.

  6. Uncle Bob says:

    Charge the victim for not filing a complaint then…just saying…maybe the victim started the situation…just saying

    • ganja mon says:

      You do NOT have to file a complaint unless the victim agrees to it. If the police received other people complaints of the incident, then the DPP can compile all the evidence and see if charges can be produced in court. Then the Police would not need the victim to file a report.

  7. Shaking My Head says:

    The audacity of some of the comments posted when you DONT know the victim…you DONT know if he was a gang member or simply someone that was at the club enjoying a drink. You DONT know the circumstances of anything but yet you find pleasure in SPECUTLATING nothing but the negative.

    This is the exact reason why Bermuda as whole wont get any further than we are as a people or country. Get your FACTS straight first. If you didnt hear it from the horses mouth dont trust the A___ that gave you the information.

    Sadly if this was your son or brother you wouldnt want people to post the same things you are posting. Think FIRST.

    • Bad says:

      how do you know that the person(s) commenting were not there to see it for them selves?

      how do you know that they dont know the victim and know that he ISSSS affiliated with a gang?!?!

      YOU DONT KNOW ANY OF THAT!!! SO YOUR WHOLE COMMENT WAS . . . POINTLESS

      im just saying!

  8. JustSayin says:

    How you guys know it was gang related? Remember it was at a bar. Maybe it was just a druk patron that was being a nuisance and got a beat down. Don’t be that person jumping to conclusions just because you can.

    • WTF says:

      it you weren’t there shut up!!!
      cause you are far from what really happened

  9. Just Saying says:

    Why charge the victim because he isn’t talking…. Just dumb. Think before you comment stupidity!
