    Great job BPS,i like to see u kick in every door where these rats hide out and put them away for all of there natural lifes..

    • What is Your answer says:

      Thanks to the BPS and to anyone that may have provided a tip or reported suspicious activity.

      The sad part is that not only have these males along with the use of the firearm likely scarred people for life and ruined families, their own families will now go through hell. Nobody wins.

      • $ says:

        Who even said the firearms been used your dumb

        • You Cant Fix Stupid. says:

          Read the Headline $. “Five Males In Police Custody, Firearm Seized”. You do understand that there have been a string of armed robberies and murders involving a gun lately. You would like us to believe that these nice young men were “just holding it for someone”. You want us to believe that even if it had not been used, it never would be? Sound like your the dumb one here.

    • Its me again says:

      Lives…

      And that would be inhumane

    • BuzzOff says:

      I’d like to see the police kick in every door of those on Keith Hall Road, and any other affiliated persons door for the drugs they’ve been pushing for donkeys years!

  2. Terry says:

    Shalom.

  3. Devonshire Devils Advocate says:

    Happy Bermuda Day guys!

  4. wahoo says:

    Well done! Please prosecute to the fullest extent.

  5. Terry says:

    One only has to look at the photo’s and see that it is well landscaped ….in so many ways.

    Border Lane.
    Irony.

    • wahoo says:

      WdeF you mean?

      • Come Correct says:

        Guy talks randomness… ignore him.

        • Terry says:

          Wahoo and Come.
          Sorta like taking the bait. You follow right.?

          Step outside your door and drive and eat and sit and reflect.
          Get back to me when you understand your asinine statements.
          Reality is a bitch.
          Look up “Bitch”.
          Shalom.

  6. Oh,I see now says:

    The good news is you thugs are selling each other out (cheaply I might add),pay attention you school aged young men.These guys you look up to and idolize will give you up to beat even a traffic case…..oh yah believe it,heh heh it wouldn’t be the first time.

  7. Positive Pessimist says:

    Thank God! One less weapon on our streets. When will this Gov’t get serious about this? The police do their part but then what? Gov’t want the public to turn people in but do people realize that these guys are only doing a small fraction of their prison sentences due to budget cuts? This includes firearms offences. I know of one young man who carried out a firearms offence-the victim didn’t get hit (but was murdered later by someone else), and only through the grace of God that the many bystanders didn’t get hurt at that first attempt.

    The perpetrator was given 12 years in prison and in literally less than two was on day release and less than four was out free. This isn’t hearsay, it’s fact-I wish I could name him but know I can’t even though he’s a convicted criminal. He did a third of his sentence! Where is the deterrent? I really wish they’d send these guys to the islands, especially Jamaica. It was discussed but ever went any further. It would save us money and I guarantee these guys would think twice before doing this nonsense again.

    • Bmack says:

      Send them to the islands?? This is an island. Besides what do they do to prisoners there that they can’t do here. Everybody wants solutions but they don’t consider the reality of it if it is tough for prisoners elsewhere make it tough for them here.

      • Wtf says:

        We could make it tough here…sure. But we the taxpayer would fork out more than the 80k per prisoner we pay now.

        • wahoo says:

          No we make it tough by halving spending. Fish night, Sunday roast dinner with all the trimmings, air conditioning etc. All that stuff is not necessary, feed them bread and cheap protein and canned soup.

          Other option is to send them all over the world because if you send them to Jamaica they will form affiliations with their ding dongs and the mess would continue to escalate.

        • Triangle Drifter says:

          Over $1500 a week. More than $700 per day!!!! Think about it. Something is very wrong here. Where is that money going?

        • $ says:

          Either you d!@kheads been jail it is tough take ya silver spoon never had common sense a$$ elsewere

    • Madge says:

      I get a little nervous going out to hang the clothes on the close line !!! with all of this crime in Bermuda….I keep my doors double bolted and my windows have security bolts ,who would have thought Bermuda wold have come to this ?
      Bermuda needs to get some real crime fighters from abroad,the Govenor need to step in and get us some help !!!!ENOUGH IS eNOUGH.

      • $ says:

        Because ya stupid nobody cares abou you and ya clothes line sit down your irrelevant

    • Hmm says:

      Hate to be the bearer of bad news but prisoners, unless otherwise specified during sentencing, are entitled to parole after a third of their sentence no matter how long that is. Some judges are making the full duration mandatory by saying not eligible for parole until such and such a date. To change this, you have to approach your constituent. A Bernews reply will do nothing about getting that changed.

    • Real Talk (original) says:

      I wish people would stop saying “send them to Jamaica”. Jamaican prisons certainly haven’t deterred crime in that country.

      • Bermyman says:

        Yeah but it costs us $80k per year to incarcerate someone in Bermuda. A waste of money.

        Jamaica on the other hand would cost us very little.

      • $ says:

        People are so stupid crime in jamauca way worse

    • Fantasea says:

      Had a relative murdered many years ago at the hands of a thug with a gone. Premeditated. He was out in 14 yrs

      • You Cant Fix Stupid. says:

        Sorry for your loss Fantasea. Its sad that these punks even get to experience freedom again. Definitely not fair.

    • Its me again says:

      You have no idea how the legal system works.

      Everyone, lifers aside, has the right to apply for parole after serving 1/3 of their time. If granted the other 2/3 is served on parole which is wayyy different than being set free.

    • Jadon says:

      Most prisoners do a 1/3 of their sentence. Do some more research…..

  8. Great job B.P.S. now maybe there can be rewards give to them that turn-tail and inform Police to where / who these lot are…

  9. Realist says:

    Excellent BPS!!

  10. James Rego says:

    Thank you BPS!

  11. Liars says:

    Hmmmm,…l notice “it is me again” has not said anything……just sayin

  12. mmm says:

    From arrest to trial seems to take about a year to a year and a half for serious crime. For relatively minor crime like drug possesion takes about eight months. I sure don,t think it takes eight months to id the suspected drug and to confirm what it actually is and put the person in Court. I think it can be done in less than 30 days. If people know it takes 8 months to finally appear in magistrate,s court for a joint, it sure sends a messag e to others.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      Wat makes me laff is they’ll catch someone red handed but they still looking for witnesses and money wasting time for 8 months before prosecuting.

  13. Triangle Drifter says:

    Great job BPS. Now, will the courts back you up?
