      These little idiots will never learn. What they do will ruin this island with the tourist trade.

      Grow up you big babies.
      You have no idea what it take to be a big time thief.

      Come to my house and find out what my foot in your a** feels like.

  2. Raymond Ray says:

    Friday! Why are we,(the public) only now made aware of this robbery? :-(

  3. Terry says:

    3 days for the public to be notified?
    No wonder we can’t make progress.

  5. JUNK YARD DOG says:

    What are they teaching our young people in our schools ?

    Are some our young people being thrown to the wolves ?

    Should some be afforded a further year in school, we all know that the last year is the hardest. That idea is a win win !

    C.I.T.V. should take a higher role in the education of our students final year.

    The trades need start an apprenticeship program.

    To the Government . We elected you all to MOTIVATE our people for a better future, get on with it !

    • Johnny says:

      Junkyard dog your question should be what are we teaching our children at home. The home should be the place where the most important lessons are learned. While there is evidence that the present govt. is failing Bermudians, we as a community should shoulder much of the blame for the actions of our youths. Parents need to wake up and be parents.

    • Concerned says:

      Who said the culprit was young? Many individuals are hurting right now but this could possibly have been an addict looking for quick money for a fix and nothing more. Companies, home owners should be very careful with schedules and times coming and going and leaving a door unlocked even to allow trash dumping is taking a chance. Leave the bags inside the building until everyone is ready to leave everybody take a bag or bags and get out of dodge or take trash out throughout the working day but not on a schedule. Remember people are watching you.

  6. Smith says:

    What no black visor? How is this possible? And something in a green bag? Omg I’ve always said we should ban green bags.

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

    Ya ever seen the first 48..?? Need I say more..?

  8. Bluenose says:

    You know what, this is all getting way out of hand.

    I say more stop and searches, more cctv, screw Curb.

    I keep my nose clean, abide by the law. If it means I get stopped or videoed, good, kit means bad people are too.

  9. M. T. Pockets says:

    Also wondering why it has taken 3 days to release this news.

    “We are particularly interested in speaking to anyone who may have any information, or who may have seen the suspect or this incident on Southside Road between 10.00pm and 10.30pm that evening.”

    Duh, anything slightly unusual that I might have seen 3 nights ago would be forgotten by now, maybe you should be publicizing this in a timely manner and you might get a better response from the public.

    Maybe the Police PR dept don’t work weekends.

    Seriously, the police want our help but don’t feel we need to know about these things for a few days. Not impressed.

  10. Okay I HAVE to respond says:

    Junky thinking Junk Yard Dog! How an earth can you question teachers and what they are teaching? I can tell you it’s not armed robbery! Education starts at home and is built on in school. Teachers are not responsible for the behaviour of grown men. Most people that go off the edge have had intervention throughout; you can lead a donkey to water but you can’t make it drink. Responsibility for children starts with parents, the wider family unit and eventually the young person themselves. There are some very gifted young people who have opted to go down the wrong path and some less gifted ones who have busted their butts to achieve. By the time you are an adult personal responsibility rests on your own shoulders! This is solely action & responsibility of this individual. Everyone that is broke, unemployed or desperate does not opt to pick up arms!

    My thing is nobody ever see’s anything these guys r getting away with murder and robberies this is very crazy for a small Island like this omg don’t do anything when I’m around because i am a very good in describing about what i saw but u know who knows it all the good lord does he does not sleep

  12. Widget says:

    This behavior is being learnt either at home and from the company they are allowed to keep. Stop blaming the teachers.

  13. Ann says:

    Junk yard dogs thinking is a large portion of what is wrong with our society, it is not the education system nor the government that is responsible for our children, it is the parents. Stop blaming everything on others and take responsibility for yourself.

  14. Betty Boop says:

    Every business should have a direct under the counter button for the police. Maybe they already do, but if I was in business I sure would. These hooligans are taking over and it’s time to stop them in their tracks.

    • Terry says:

      Yeah right.
      Like the Police are sitting outside every establishment .
      Grow up.
      Panic buttons serve a purpose.
      Does not stop the crime.

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

        A very loud attention getting sound…Make everybody stop and look…then whoever ain’t stopped and looking would be a suspect in my eyes…jus sayin.

  15. End it says:

    When we find out who this guy is he should be publically executed legally to set an example to the rest of those animals!

    • Toodle-oo says:

      The last time we did that ‘as an example’ the lovers of the ‘animals’ didn’t like it and we haven’t been the same since.
