    Culture will follow economics. If this government and these people are happy to live in a culture where men are content to gun each other down to resolve disputes, then so be it. Is that the type of country you want to live in? This is how economically suppressed and depressed people behave.

    • No Saint George says:

      So this has nothing to do with education, upbringing and parenting one’s children correctly so they learn from an early age how to deal with disagreements and disputes appropriately?? Time to take some ownership/responsibility first as an individual, as a family and a community and stop blaming everyone else for your plight in life.

    • Andrew says:

      Yeah, I’m sure this has everything to do with needing money, and nothing to do with a beef…smh. Some people make me laugh.

    • Ash says:

      Sounds like there weren’t any guns involved, this article implies that the guys beat the other guys with either their fists or objects.

    • Lead By Example says:

      These shootings and killings BEGAN while the previous government was in power? What is your excuse now. You are a fool to believe anyone or any change of government can “control” these fools. They are grown MEN and unless they have legitimate mental issues they make conscious decisions on their own. Everyone one of us knows the difference between right and wrong, love and hate, what is legal and what is against the law. Everyone one of these fools thinks they are cool, they ignore family values, and anyone that tries to guide them on the right path. When they get caught, they change instantly… dress different, call upon teachers, ministers, family to say how good they are. And Sans George, fools like you don’t help.

      • Jadon says:

        These gangs and drug wars have been going on for over 50 years…. The UBP allowed it and that’s when most guns were brought in. They are just getting to using the guns because times are changing and we are catching up with the rest of the world. Drugs, guns, violence is how the economy stays up. It’s a billion dollar business. Do some research. they allow all this s***… And will continue too. The world is finished. Too many hungry greedy people in this world….

    • Hey S!@# Head, we have been an economically suppressed and depressed people for de last 400 years, aint nothing new.

    Bermudian’s – Destroying tourism one day at a time.

    • Bull S!@# , places in de Caribbean have multiple murders every day, and their numbers STILL put us in de shade.

  4. OBSERVER says:

    Response to this article is…..employers must pay attention to Bermudians seeking employment.If a qualified Bermudian seeks employment , EMPLOY HIM/HER. Before hunting and looking for Canadians, et al., hire a person from HERE first!!!!!
    Choose FAIR employment practicesfor BERMUIDANS over corruption!!! We CANNOT enter Canada and do anything like what is currently going on here in Bermuda by Canadians!!!

    • Terry says:

      So the person is Canadian?

      Man you the riddler

    • Bdaboy says:

      What on earth are you taking about , someone was stabbed in the face , what in heavens name does that have to do with employing Canadians ?!

    • Rhonnda Oliver says:

      Uh… what?

    • Ydhrsc says:

      I believe it’s the law to hire a *qualified* bermudian first. And only Canadians come here for employment?

    • Martian Alien says:

      @ OBSERVER, you it are a complete a** H*** and your comment critique equals your lower aforementioned location. Suggestion get your head out of your a** and take a look at reality and true life, Don’t get me started on Bermudian work ethics, By the way I am a Bermudian

    • bluwater says:

      You’re being lied to about Canada. You can emigrate and will welcomed as an immigrant 20,000 refugees from Syria in 5 months. All eligible for assistance and Canadian citizenship.

      • So how big is Canada and how big is Bermuda?

        • bluwater says:

          You’re right. But Observer’s point was that immigrants could not enter Canada the way they enter Bermuda. That’s dead wrong.

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

          I’m glad u brought up about size wise…at least in Canada you can spread out the ignorance but in bermuda it’s CONCENTRATED!…IN YOUR FACE! …AT EVERY TURN YOU TAKE!…thanks to people who think like you…

    • Lead By Example says:

      So you think these two thugs are employable???? One background check and they would not have a chance of being employed by me for at least 10 years.

    • Ann says:

      Employers are not responsible for hiring thugs, Employers are responsible for hiring men and women who show good work ethic and can A) pass a drug test and B) not have a police record a mile long. So many of these social ills are brought on by kids having kids and not being able to take of themselves let alone a child. Stop blaming employers for not being willing to risk their business and the lively hood of all their other employees for people that just don’t and won’t act responsibly. Is that not the parents job????????

    • Fluffy says:

      Hell he could have come from Pluto!! These thugs had no right!! Catch these little wannabe thugs and publicly flog them…. Listen for them to cry out for their mama!!!

  5. Retired says:

    Lets pray for all Bermuda……

    • Moses says:

      The churches are too busy devoting time and energy into fighting against the rights of normal law abiding citizens of Bermuda who happen to be homosexual. And these same churches are quick to spout off that children need to be raised in a home with a mother and father and that a same sex household will cause untold damage to children. Well I ask them how many of these fools who are hell bent on destroying this country grew up in a same sex household??? I believe it is more imporant to be raised in a loving and nurturing household.

      • Guest says:

        That’s got absolutely nothing to do with the young man’s life which is in the balance as he’s in Intensive Care at KEMH. As someone very close to the situation right now shame on you on seeking the opportunity to propitiate your own agenda or criteria on a case that has nothing to do with the same sex/civil union referendum. Move on with your life and stop propagating under pretenses that you know nothing about.

        • bluwater says:

          As someone very close, I can’t believe you’re spending your time hating on Bernews.

      • Enough says:

        You evidently aren’t in church then if that’s what you believe, don’t sprout off about something you have no clue about.

    • Blind Pews says:

      Yeah, prayer… How’s that working out so far…

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      PRAYERS don’t do s***! If THEY DID we wouldn’t be in the situation like we guys are in now…

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

        You mean just like MANs laws that don’t do s#!t..? Give this man the power and alot of you would be missing family and friends.

  6. CBA says:

    Bermuda has been on a tipping point for a long time. If we start having violence at tourist resorts, we all might as well pack our bags and go.

    • Terry says:

      Go where.
      Back to Britain where it is free?
      US you need a lot more paperwork than a passport.

  7. Cranjis McBasketball says:

    How is it that when it comes to these events police are never near the area but yet are so quick just to stick around and wait to catch someone speeding?
    Absolutely embarrassing. Hard to feel safe when the police are only good for giving out tickets.

    • Bdaboy says:

      Yes , blame the police for someone making the choice to stab another person…smh

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

        You ever watch “the first 48″…absolutely no evidence but they still get their man…

      • Cranjis McBasketball says:

        @bdaboy I’m just saying d police are never around when these things happen. Go take an English class cause apparently you can’t even comprehend. Let’s blame your English teacher for that.

    • Just wondering says:

      so are you suggesting that the police ought to have staked out the Fairmont beach for the last 30 years so they could pounce when this happened??

      • Cranjis McBasketball says:

        bredrin get a gps cause ya location is way off

    • Good Vibrations says:

      Bitter over getting a speeding ticket lately are we? You cant get caught speeding if you don’t speed? Slow down and they won’t have a need to do speed checks.

  8. Miguelito says:

    Find these punks and lock ‘em up…for a long, long time.

    • Just wondering says:

      one suspects the kid who was assaulted most likely knows them – am sure they didn’t drive down to the beach area to assault some random member of staff – lets see if he identifies them to the police – if he doesn’t then what chance do the rest of us have in identifying them?

  9. Goodness says:

    Why does Government have a blame on this crime? A 19 year old kid was working and these thugs approached him at his place of employment. They need to be found and locked up. It is very sad to hear about this to our lovely island.

    • Ash says:

      Not a kid, he’s not a kid, a 19 year old is an adult.

  10. Widget says:

    @San George

    Are you serious. These two young men need a serious cut a$$.

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

    I think the police should hire independant contractors when it comes to gang or street violence…giving them more time for the white collar crimes…I’m thinking of starting a business…hiring highly trained and disciplined men and women in assault weaponry and close quarter combat…keen on search and destroy missions…”Street Sweeper Security”…For serious crimes only.
    Be a lotta sleep depraved criminals around…you better sleep with one eye open…We will find you , you will be taken, and no one can save you. Go ahead make our day…we’ll show u wat a real street soldier is!

  12. Felix says:

    Go Fornicate in the Bushes!

    That’s what supporters of a senior politician were told to do. Guess what? They went and did it! Now look at the result! This is what Fornicating in the Bushes has done for us! Happy now?

  13. bluwater says:

    Be real. It’s drugs people and who is bringing them in and the guns? Who is helping them. Your neighbours. You all know it.

  14. Real Deal says:

    Many of you don’t understand why the laws/punishments don’t work on certain people.

    I all boils down to having something worth not losing.

    If the person you want the punishment to work on dose not have something they fell is worth keeping no punishment you can think of will work on them.

    I will give you a personal example.

    when I was gainfully employed making good money and could see a clear path to “make it in life” my thoughts on how the handled different events were comply different to what they are now.

    example if someone did me wrong I was not quick to acting in retaliation without thinking about how it would affect the clear path I saw to “make it in life”.

    with that said a lot of people would be spared my retaliation.
    in my mind I calculated the retaliation was not worth the chance of losing what I have.

    however now that I not been fully employed for 2 years my clear path has been burred. all efforts get it path back are slowly slipping away.

    Because of this I think differently now no one will be spared my retaliation and I even hope to get the chance to retaliate so that I can take out my frustrations of life on someone.

    this is why punishment don’t work on some people in some cases even their life they feel is not worth anything so death as a punishment will not work as a deterrent.

    This is all science People nothing I said is made up you can google “id ego superego” if you want to figure it out yourself

  15. mmm says:

    No doubt there will have to be increased levels of security, whether on not this is considered an isolated incident. This was not a case of a visitor being beaten and robbed, but it may have spilled out into public areas, so a lot has to be thought about. This took less than 4 minutes. There needs to be a higher presence of police officers throughout the Island. I agree with many who read my last statement, that a murder and stabbing took place in spite of more police officers on duty this past week-end, but I do feel that more police officers manning check points will reduce the tendency to commit crime, we can see the lack of respect for law and order in our publi c city parks and city streets with folks drinking alcohol, loud music, …and yes there are the un-employed and ho meless who gather in the city, so I am not gonna suggest that everyone in a public park is up to mischief. I hope the young man makes it, and that his employers will use utmost discretion going forward.
