    Premier Dunkley my friend the time has come to take these trouble makers and save tax payer dollar and drop them out North Rock. Tie red meat to their legs and tell them freedom has a cost. Now swim back to Bermuda to show us how much of a BAD BOY you really are. If they make it back to Bermuda no JAIL TIME!

      Jaws I did that already, no sweat! The anxiety was a bit much at times but turned out the wildlife was more feared of me than I was of them. So there goes your theory. And I have witnesses just in case you dont believe it. Maybe south shore would be different….just a thought

    • Will says:

      North rock isn’t far enough. I’ve always called for the drop point to be argus banks, now that’s a swim full of tiger sharks.

    Another night in Paradise.

      And as the BTA says, PROPER BERMUDA. So I guess what theyre doing is proper. Lol

  7. curious says:

    Did they just miss a sailboat?

  8. Oh,I see now says:

    Bring back the noose if they want to run loose.

  9. Mr Ed says:

    Those who are convicted for All Fire Arms Offences which includes Murder or Atempted Murder should be sent to Jamiaca to do there
    time – (1) it would be a lot cheaper by 60% (2) Jamaica could also use the money (3) it will be 100% harsher that’s for sure.
    Just think how much money we could save by doing this.- trust me a deal between Bermuda & Jamiaca can be made .

    • Rhonda says:

      Jamaica’s prisons are all empty, just waiting for people from the UK’s colony and Jamaica is crime free

      • MAKE MY DAY says:

        BDA Gov’t does NOT have the “cojones” to actually make these criminals suffer in a REAL prison system!! Poor criminals….Makes one sick!!

    • hmmm says:

      Why not Turkey or Russia?

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Bermudians have been locked up down yard before, aink even that bad. Try Russia or somewhere where they don’t speak English like Mexico. Then you’ll have some effect…

  10. Yes I says:

    These guys are the scrum…the ones who really need to be dropped off in with the sharks are the ones financing the import of drugs. But wait..that would be some very trusted individuals in our society. Nevermind, let’s keep the disenfranchised at a disadvantage.

  11. Rhonda says:

    Mr. Ed…..Are you suggesting… the UK has no control over she colony… the misbehaved should be sent back to a former colony, …

  12. MAKE MY DAY says:

    Guns and gangs are now firmly “rooted” in the Island!! Never going to be the same!! Wait until unemployment grows – but that won’t affect these gangs as most of them make a living selling drugs!!

    It is what it is!!!
