Premier & Senator Meet With Four Star Pizza Staff

December 28, 2015

Premier Michael Dunkley and Junior Minister for National Security Senator Jeff Baron met with staff at the Four Star Pizza Restaurant in Warwick today [Dec 28] following the robbery that took place on Saturday.

Senator Jeff Baron said, “This afternoon the Premier and I visited Four Star Pizza at the Warwick Workmen’s Club to show our support for the staff following Saturday night’s armed robbery. In addition, the Premier has spoken with the owner.

“I appeal to anyone who might have seen anything suspicious in the area at the time to report it to the Police or to Crime Stoppers at 800-8477. If you see something, then say something.

Premier Michael Dunkley Four Star

“Crime, no matter where it occurs, no matter who it hurts or why it happens, is something all right-thinking people condemn and decent governments everywhere work to prevent.

“In that vein, the Bermuda Police Service has our support as it continues every day doing its best for the sake of the community. Its officers are doing a great job.

“For Mr. Walter Roban, PLP Home Affairs critic, to then use Saturday’s robbery to attack the Government as an accessory to the crime is a shameful political intrusion into a disturbing incident that happened to innocent, on-the­ job Bermudians.

“It is an example of a distorting politics ­first approach to community business that helps no one.”

    I would like to thank Sen Jeff Baron for pointing out the obvious, concerning the comments of “bud ” roban!!!! Bud, is well known for talking out of both sides of his mouth, no different than the rest of the plp I suppose??? It was just SIX months ago, “bud ” was stating he AGREED with the the cut backs of the police service!!!

    Politicking at its absolute worse . Pulling at the heart strings of a pacified population at Christmas is heartless . Did the premier and his sidekick comfort the young lady who was robbed at gunpoint in the old Crockwells Chicken spot , known lately as the Moneyshop. . No they couldn’t care less that a lone Bermudian female suffered tremendous mental trauma from two males armed with a gun …. No popliteal traction to be gained there … Oh I see through the corniness of this Holy Day photoop.

    • Zevon says:

      Didn’t see you saying the same thing to Roban. That’s odd.

    • bluwater says:

      More like sour grapes for you. How dare the Premier show some solidarity with it’s citizens.

      “…No they couldn’t care less that a lone Bermudian female suffered tremendous mental trauma from two males armed with a gun …”says you. Maybe, there’s some criminals there that Roban make a statement in support of? Talk about politicking.

  3. Marge says:

    The Premier, needs to deal with his ministers,who are not dealing with we the tax payers problems….enough of your photo ops……deal with the serious problems Premier…..

    • Zevon says:

      So armed robbery isn’t a “serious problem”. Typical PLP.

  4. Takbir Karriem Sharrieff says:

    No Government can claim that it has the power to make criminality go away!It is deeper than that.Education of the masses of the people,and social programs,and family involvement of the societies ,involved and a myriad of programs ,involving Churches ,Mosques,Cultural groups and others is necessary to curb or control this behaviour.The old saying that it takes a whole village to shape and mold a human being holds truth in these instances of un-acceptable behaviour patterns.Let us all get involved and accept the responsibility of turning this problem around.Allah-u-Akbar,which means Allah is greater All-in-All shoulders to the wheel means just that.The total society pulling together is the greater force,,,,,providing that we are working together,for the greater good.

      Allah is not greater than any one thing….no one is!

    Thanks Senator Baron. EXACTLY! And worth repeating!!!!!!!!!!! “For Mr. Walter Roban, PLP Home Affairs critic, to then use Saturday’s robbery to attack the Government as an accessory to the crime is a shameful political intrusion into a disturbing incident that happened to innocent, on-the­ job Bermudians. It is an example of a distorting politics ­first approach to community business that helps no one.”

  6. 3rdEye says:

    Ah can someone please point out the ‘on the job Bermudian’ in this photo? Thankhs

    • Bozey says:

      Reading my mind!! This establishment and the new one recently open have 1 Bermudian to 4 non Bermudians!! Politricks!!!

      • frank says:

        i do not support this company because hire a lot of none bermudians and you all should do the same

        just another photo up for batman and robin

      • Really? says:

        @3rdEye, @Bozey & @Rocky

        Politricks? yeah right. I’m pretty sure is was just a rhetorical comment.. average resident just trying to make a living, etc

        Perhaps best that you take up your anger re: lack of 100% Bermudian employment with the owner vs attacking a Senator/Premier. In defense of Mr. Thomas– do you understand how difficult it is to get young (or older for that matter) Bermudians to even apply for these entry level type of jobs? I do. He has a business to run, what would you do in his shoes?

        Why don’t you apply the next time he has an opening?
        Do some research before spouting off maybe.

  7. Rocky says:

    “…on-the­ job Bermudians.”

    Baron, can you help me understand that comment?

  8. Real BDA Fish says:

    I don’t recall the premier showing up at any of the Rangers insidents nor Somerset kricket club, Belvins, Butterfield Bank, Sienic Heights, Mr. Chicken, Hitching Post nor any other incident. Will he show up in Pond Hill/ Glebe Road/ St. Monica’s Road area showing concern after the latest incident? Makes me wonder why he chose to show at this particular one.

    • Walk in their shoes says:

      To be fair, this area isn’t exactly a Fairylands neighbourhood in the slightest.

  9. lifetime says:

    Why don’t Batman and Robin go up 42nd and take pics with the people up there!

    Jokers!

  10. BornB says:

    hmph!! No Bermudians up in there hey… perhaps if they increased the wages it would be more appealing for Bermudians to apply/get hired!!! How you expect to pay $8-$10 and hour to a local who is facing $2000 a month rent.. oh and cant sub-let in order to make ends meet when you have landlords who would allow up to 8 foreign adults sub-let in a 2 bedroom (many charging by the head), yes of course they can agree to those low wages..

    I know it not the platform for the story, but it all fits in and you get my jist!

    Glad no one got hurt in the robbery though!

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Any money is better than no money so why don’t you apply anyways?!

  11. Yes!We are definitely in election mode.Folks, this picture is misleading. The premier does not give a darn about BLACK PEOPLE. Take a serious look at the three year record.It speaks for itself!!!

  12. The Truth says:

    Photo Op – move along, nothing to see here.

  13. Question: How many Bermudian employees do you see in this picture? How many do you see at any of this establishment’s outlets islandwide? Then ask yourself WHY? Now Go Pick the bones out of that! NOTICE I didn’t hide behind NO FAKE NAME Either! Try not to miss the point! Ps…Where I come from WE don’t SHOP where we’re NOT HIRED!

    • Samantha says:

      Well my guess is you don’t eat or buy food anywhere in Bermuda. 95% of the supermarkets and restaurants are managed by xpats. Pick the bones from that! The only Bermudian in the back is person washing the dishes!

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Same reason why us Bermudians don’t want to be a pot washer, etc. The pay is low, we think we’re entitled to a job, long hours, etc. Sometimes you need to work your way up Ceola but no one wants to do that anymore. I GUARANTEE you if you, any other “Bermudian” applied for this job when there was an opening, they would have GOTTEN THE JOB! It’s not always about BLACK and WHITE so stop thinking like that.

      PS. You think not spending your $50 on a pizza is going to hurt Mr. Thomas LMFAO…he probably gets the ingredients for pennies from foreign!

      PSS. Be a part of the solution, not the problem!

  14. Try It says:

    narrow minded, stupid useless tired lameass, not my job, you owe ME Bermudians. There are your job opportunities just to tired. lazy to make the effort. WELCOME to the real world. I give them credit, work hard spend monies here but still provide for their families. You lot should try it

    • This is it says:

      If this “decent government” is working to prevent crime then please tell me why they have yet to ban dark visors when almost all of these gun incidents have involved shooters who have worn a dark visor?! Dark tint was long ago banned from cars, what’s the hold up with visors??

  15. Really? says:

    Nail meet Head– Well-said, TRY.

    People who are constantly spouting off about no jobs! no jobs!.. need to open their eyes. As an employer, I can tell you that most of the service jobs that are awarded to the expats are because there are no Bermudians applying for them, let alone (qualified) Bermudians who live their lives with an entitled chip on their shoulders. FACT.
