    And now we return you to regular programing.

  6. Ann says:

    Are you kidding, these punks need to be removed from society, the rest of the Island is trying to deal with everything that happened today. Please don’t tell me they did it because they want work. Just worthless trouble makers, please somebody turn them in,

  7. Thinker says:

  8. Broken Glass says:

    Nicole didnt do her job properly,she missed some scum

  9. Uk forever says:

    Bermuda will never change!

    • Therefore, the U.K. awaits you. Don’t like it here? Get lost.
      The U.K. has its own share of problems.
      Where have you been?
      They will always have problems.
      No utopia here in Bermuda or the U.K.

  10. Its me again says:

    We still blaming the victims?

    Its a system. Its supposed to be this way. They want it this way. The shooters are the victims here as well and until we see it this way this cycle will not end.

    • jt says:

      Who is “they”?

    • Nanny Pat says:

      I seriously pray that you are being sarcastic.

    • Dan the man says:

      The shooters are the victims?
      They are scum of the earth. And so are morons like you who defend them and make excuses.

    • kim p says:

      At Its me again – Are you serious ??

      • Toodle-oo says:

        Of course he’s serious . Are you not yet familiar with the garbage he posts , like OJ ?

  11. Enough says:

    Stop them hanging around outside spinning wheel all day and all night it’s actually called loitering

    • Dockyard Lackey says:

      No it’s Littering. They are all trash.

      • Its me again says:

        Youre a sick person.

      • Disgusted says:

        Unbelievable….ALL LIVES MATTER C**T!

      • enough says:

        I have to agree with that actually. so sick and tired of theses young men doing nothing with their lives and expecting everyone else to do for them. they have chances and throw them away and I know hat for a fact. when you are given the opportunity of going overseas and starting a new life and have some schooling and you have to come back here for the summer to do a pack of nonsense instead of getting a job even waiting tables, well you deserve what you get, sorry but that’s the truth. My sympathy level is now at zero.

      • Yup!! Opinions like this will always have the races at war.
        Trash is amongst all of the races. No one race is better than another. All are totally IMPERFECT.

    • Its me again says:

      Actually the bermuda constitution list “freedom of assembly” as a right. The only way it is loitering is if the owners call the police, if the owners are fine than its called business.

  12. BobtheBuilder says:

    Yall have some heartless comments. Live a day in their lives and find out what is going on. Ask them whats up. Better than sitting up here on high at your computer looking down on someone and bad mouthing them like your closet is spick and span. Anyways i’ll go back to sipping my tea. “If you are without fault, cast the first stone.”

    • jt says:

      Someone chose to shoot another person. That’s quite deserving of the comments here.

    • Bob says:

      Anyone running around with a gun is not someone who deserves me asking them “what’s up”, they deserve to be taken off the streets and put in jail. End of discussion.

    • Cedar Stump says:

      Bob, Is that erb tea?

  13. Billy Bye' says:

    Not even a Hurricane could stop the madness.- most shootings are done by opportunity.

  14. sweet black says:

    I really wish that some people in our society will stop making excuses for these animals and that is what I will call any person who creates trouble like this. I personally am sick and tired of hearing about these shooting taking place. There is no excuse in the world for anyone to pick up a gun and shoot someone it is just plane wrong. I have a 14 year old son in my household and I firmly believe the discipline starts at home. Some of these guys doing this madness still live at home with mommy or daddy. Think about this if u have a grown boy living in your house and he does not work an honest job like the rest of us but yet always has money and nice clothes etc the material things as a parent that should ring alarm bells in your head. Stop babying these guys and make them grow up and take responsibility for their actions GROW UP PUNKS

  15. Oh,I see now says:

    They are lionfish I tell you.Uneducated ,baby making ,immature disappointments.

  16. Think says:

    To get to the bottom of this dilemma, is to find out who is the master mind in distributing these guns on our Island. They are putting these guns in our black boys hands. Black on black crime is sad and quite disturbing to me. Killing one another over dumbness. I guess they want to be a gangsta, but they’ll never survive a day in America in maximum security prison. They’ll be someone’s b|+€h,
