  8. SMH says:

    There is more to this story, so before I pass any judgment, I need to hear the facts.

    • Tricks are For Kids says:

      interesting choice of words….”so before I pass any judgment”……really?????…..who are you to judge???…with or without the facts…..

    • Second says:

      Regardless what the story is, don’t pass judgement. It’s not your place to do so. Pray for all concerned, the victim, perpetrator and families and friends of both. A sad affair !

      • Tricks are For Kids says:

        @ Second……my point exactly…

      • Jonny rocket says:

        an opinion is a judgment and we all have them, so stop with all the no judging quotes.

    • Hurricane says:

      And really SMH, you don’t need to hear anything. Sounds to me like you’ve heard more than enough. Mind your business!

  9. praying for you says:

    Keep fighting praying for you. You can pull through you strong. Lord please please help him pull through he got his whole life ahead of him. Give his family n loved ones the strength to pull through this as well. And to those people out there that live to comment on situations such as this please have a lil compassion n understanding as you have a family that is going through a lot right now. Much love to you my lil friend and your entire family

  10. bornb says:

    Judgement is NOT for anyone to pass…. Remember every family on this island has some issues. So refrain from making any sort of negative responses please. This young mans family is going through a lot right now and I can even imagine what the 31 year old’S family is going through. When it’s all said and done… HAVE A HEART! Lest we forget we may find ourselves in the same or similar scenario.

    • We Are Not Amused! says:

      “Remember every family on this island has some issues”

      No they DON’T!

      • Self says:

        @We Are Not Amused!

        You have to be the biggest troll and fool on this forum. So I suppose your family is the only family in Bermuda that doesn’t have any issues? You must really be living in la-la dreamland.

        EVERY family has an issue. Some people’s issues are just bigger than others. Whether it be divorce/marital problems, financial, workaholic, drugs/alcohol, kids not doing well in school, teenage pregnancy, family members not getting along, the list could go on and on but every single person on this planet is going to encounter an issue at some point in their lives.

        NOBODY goes through life smooth sailing.

      • Confused says:

        Sorry to say…yeah they do. Show me a perfect family and I will show you a family hiding from their issues!!!

        • We Are Not Amused! says:

          If you cannot keep your family and children in good order,
          Dont get married and Dont have children.

          Issues?…that’s just a Bermudian excuse and I’m sick of hearing it.

          Bermudians are very good at making excuses,they love to hide the truth and try to bury their head in the sand.

          • Confused says:

            Hate to break the news…but you don’t need to be married to have children.

            Bermuda has a number of social ills that must be faced, and this is not the time or place for them to be discussed.

            We need to remember that these are people’s lives that have been affected and moderate our comments and/or opinions accordingly. Just imagine how you would feel if your family members were involved.

      • roger says:

        no they dont

  11. young boys friend2 says:

    praying for you

  12. Not kool says:
  13. cousin says:

    Unheard of situation sorry for both families

  14. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    I will not judge…but i will give my opinion.

  15. praying for you says:

    Wish i could see the person who hit dislike to some1 simply praying for another persons recovery. Think it would be very interesting to put a face to the heartless coward. I bet u they family or friends of the suspect. Not like bad comments were made about her. To be honest she needs a prayer too as well as her family friends n kids. Nobody never wins in a situation like this never. Yet again to everyone who is affected by this tragic situation my prayers and love go out to u. Who godbless no man curse

    • Haha says:

      It could just be simple mistakes. Sometimes when I’m scrolling through comments I hit dislike by accident and it does not let you unlike it.

      • Tricks are for Kids says:

        True…..but not THAT many times. ..sad because we really do have people that hit “dislike” intentionally. .

  16. YoungBermudian says:

    I really pray that the lord is watching over our island, there are so many things happening on this island that have the potential to be avoided, but it seems many would like to take these situations into their own hands… & it’s not just this unfortunate situation; EVERYTHING, that is going on in our island behind closed doors & out in the open.. This is a hard pill to swallow.. #WakeUpBermuda

  17. hulktoo says:

    let us pray, dear Lord. not just for the families but for us as a human race. Let us forgive in the face of adversity. Let us band strong as a community. Let us work at this not happening again. One love , one life , one family. blessings to one and all.

  18. SILVERFOX says:


  19. welllll says:

    Well I will say I hope the young boy pulls through this. I have said a prayer for him. Dont judge dont judge to the 30 year old every action has a reaction lets not forget that.

    • out and about says:


      The outcome of this story is very unfortunate.

      I don’t wish harm/injury on anyone. BUT as a mother, I would also protect myself and family – don’t underestimate the powers of a woman. You never know what you will do until you are faced with these situations.

      I hope all of Bermuda (students as well) will learn from this, from both angles.

      Praying for both families.

      • Beauty says:

        peoples mentality show when they act and speak. your showing your children to use violence when there in difficult situations and its sad.

  20. Puma says:

    In heat like this …you have to keep a cool head…the cool head prevails.

  21. Confused says:

    There are no winners in this situation. My prayers go to both families, who are both victims. Praying that this young man pulls through, and that his family has the strength to deal with whatever comes next.

  22. nok says:

    Lets continue to encourage our people to respect their elders.I am not saying anything about this case in particular but, this is a very hard world were living just trying to get by day to day.Foolishness that was exceptable years ago is no longer acceptable in todays society from anybody. Justing keeping it real. The struggle is real.We don’t know what we are capable of until it’s already done.

  23. D says:

  24. hmmmmmm says:

  25. ells says:
