  1. Say Whaat? says:

    I hope they got the punks who attacked the senior citizen too!

  2. OBA Politrix says:

    Question is who has the cctv contract, and why these thugs are able to conduct their trade unimpeded by the govt of the day.

    Only thing I can say is under the plp court street was not in the state it is now.

    • Double S says:

      The contract was made public when it was sign.

      As to your last point, you obviously were not here prior to the OBA coming into power if you think that Court Street was some sort of haven.

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      They continued to conduct their trade under the watch of the PLP too…..money talks

    • Civil Young Woman says:

      Clearly you must be living under a rock. Court Street has ALWAYS been where the lowlifes hang. The PLP tried their little Economic Empowerment project to make Court St appealing to business owners.

      NONE of the people that moved to Court St during that period are still there. Most people complained that their customers felt intimidated coming to the area. Furthermore, what does CCTV have to do with the fact that these a**holes are recording and posting their videos on social media as if its BFV (Bermuda Funniest Videos).

      Politics has nothing to do with the mindset of these losers.

    • Compare Notes? says:

      Really? It wasn’t? What stats are you comparing when you make this statement? Are you look drug use, serious crime ,or murder numbers? The PLP has always looked the other way at what is going on in the neighbourhood. I’ve witnessed it and I’m sure you have too. Many including two former heads of the Police walk out of Alaska Hall regularly and turn a blind eye to the drug dealing, public intoxication, and even prostitution.

    • Well I never says:

      That’s a load of crap, court street has been on the road to ruin since 1999, nothing was done then so why should it be different now? I left hanging on there 2000 , the caliber of youth has been deteriorating rapidly, and I don’t expect it to get any better whomever is in power!!

  3. The Dark Knight Returns says:

    And they will go to court and be treated like babies.

  4. Ms. G says:

    Keep them! Punk behaviour

  5. Bermydude says:

    Great news, now cut there a.. really good and give them some hard labor with imprisonment for 5 years with no half time stuff!!

    The other ones that left the Island, Stop list, no more entering Bermuda!!

    A bush of punks and a menis to our society and please don’t find excuses for this individuals, they are grown men that know exactly what they are doing!!

    • FFF says:

      my solution would be far worse. Punk A** wannabe hoodlums send their sorry a***s to Russias Black Dolphin prison on a ONE way NO return ticket

    • Anbu says:

      Why dont u STFU. Another one prob got an excuse as to why them bies deliberately attacked another person for no reason at all other than they “thought” he prob shouldnt be there. Still waiting for the day these little turds try it with someone who immediately puts them in the ground. Sick of this island making excuses for these oxygen thieves. That bie was WORKING. U know? Like a productive member of society normally does? And to top it off they wanna try and double team ya boy. Cowards but no surprise. Prob would have got beat down if they approached him one on one judging by the size of that hand cart. Those two need nothing more than a swift kick in the backside and a hefty jail sentence. Shame we need to resort to vigilantism to get any real sense of justice tho. Stop defending these little punks.

    • Just a thought says:

      5 years imprisonmen. Now that is a bit overboard. After reviewing the video yes something definitely needs to occur with these individuals. However, maybe something other than half a decade maybe a better solution.

    • 666 says:

      Why dont you stfu? You are part of the problem.

    • FYI says:

      @P – You sound really dumb right about now!

    • Clint Eastwood says:

      We have a great solution, put em all in jail. Pretty simple lol

  6. Mama says:

    Thank Goodness!!!!! Keep them!!! Make an example out of them. And yes it baffels me also how they are able to conduct drug buisness all day long from sun up and none of them get arrested. Even having that Big Police Bus there, doesn’t deter them none. And under the PLP Government they did the darn same!!!!!! OBA doesn’t have anything to do with those little boys actions!!!!! It starts from the home!!!! People stopped the teachings within the household and they also stopped sending them to Sabbath and Sunday Schools!!!! Latch Key kids coming home to nobody. Unstable homes. Look at them now.

    • Clint Eastwood says:

      And how do you know they are ‘conducting drug business all day long from sun up’??
      Is it not possible they are just hanging out on the street, like they’ve done their entire lives?

      You are assuming none of them get arrested?? I’m sure most of them have been arrested many times lol..

      How do you know the ‘Big Police Bus doesn’t deter them none’? Do you think they would be randomly assaulting innocent people next to the ‘Big Police Bus’??

      I’m sure your intentions are good, but your comments are ridiculous lol

  7. UmJustSaying says:

    Ray Charles,Stevie Wonder and Us
    We all can SEE and have SEEN what happens on the BLOCK. It’s not about the POLICE.
    It about a problem WE REFUSE TO ADDRESS outside OUR HOMES and places of BUSINESSES.

    • FYI says:

      The POLICE have a part to play in keeping Law and Order!! Unfortunately, many of them are not fearlesa and allow many misdeeds to slide because they can’t be bothered to deal with it. For example, just as simple as unwilling to officially investigate a traffic accident where Due Care and drunk driving was involved simply because they do not wish to write a report. Pathetic Police Officers, not all but quite a few.

  8. ella says:

    What do you mean “one has left the jurisdiction”? Did it catch a flight? Is it in Bda waters on some-ones boat? Did it manage to get to Dock-yard?

    • Clint Eastwood says:

      It means they are NOT IN BDA. Does it matter how they left?

      Maybe they caught a lift on a submarine lol

  9. Hmmmmmmm..... says:

    It’s time to stamp out foolishness. Do we need a foreign police chief (Colin Coxal), to come and strike fear into the hearts of idiots? Do what needs to be done or things will get nasty with vigilante justice. Punish the offenders. If they are too young… Punish the parents. Nothing likes licks. We have to live here.

    • Anbu says:

      Well thanks to people like a certain lady who i wont identify, we arent allowed to give em licks anymore. Corporal punishment needs to be brought back. Like yesterday

    • FYI says:

      Yup, indeed we do need foreign police.

  10. aceboy says:

    Softly softly just doesn’t work.

  11. Triangle Drifter says:

    Good going BPS. Now, let’s see if the courts back you up.

  12. mm says:

    Outbreaks of violence are becoming more and more frequent. The police very seldom walk the beat, a physical presence needs to be all thru the city and they need to be on foot. This particular crime may have lasted 5 minutes, no doubt it would take a few minutes to get all available officers to the scene. Folks are bold, folks are brazen. Money has been made available for Americas Cup, but the police budget has been trimmed over the years. I don,t know what sparked this incident…but we surely know during Americas Cup such behavior will be clamped down quickly. It looks like more tax dollars will have to come from somewhere. No doubt Chamber of Commerce and the West End Development Corporation will have such a matter high on their respective agendas at their next scheduled meeting. Some of those already in prison, and have come to realise their mistakes, wish they could talk to the youth who are involved in destroying the economic and moral goodwill that this Island is known for.

  13. v smtih says:

    Take them all and put them on an island with bread and water.

  14. Fur says:

    And these are the kids we are fighting for. Attacking a young man who is earning an honest living. And no one helped him. Bermuda this needs to stop. Throw the book at these punks and make examples of them. They don’t have respect for anyone.

  15. She did that says:

    Good!!!

  16. Hmmmmmmm..... says:

    We have become too politically correct. We don’t want to do the things we must do for fear we may offend some. Make prison hell, with potential opportunities to those showing promise. Make prisoners work to serve the society they offend. Let them work for their food and benefits. Create attractive opportunities designed to give an idiot a way out of a life of drama and foolishness. Most of all, stop sticking heads in the sand, hoping the foolishness will stop. Bermuda is only sooooooo big, and we all have to live here peacefully as a people.

  17. Hmmmmmmm..... says:

    I came across this in the Bible. Had to share……
    Romans: 13. 1. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
    2. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
    3. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
    4. For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
    5. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
    6. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
    7. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. – Bible Offline PRO

  18. Oh,I see now says:

    2 Timothy 3:2 is where we reside right here right now in Bermuda.I was wondering how long it was going to take for them to start attacking innocent people.

  19. Bermy greens says:

    Time to take our island back from these useless wannabes and every parent of those children should be ashamed whether they are adults or not . You know what your kids are doing and who they are affilitated with stop turning a blind eye and cut ya sons a**es if u have to . Cause you know granny’s and pops wouldn’t stand for that …

    • FYI says:

      Show me your child and I’ll tell you who you are. Often times children are a reflection of their parents, and are, most definitely, a product of their environment.

  20. Well says:

    Are they going to be charged?? That is the question!!

  21. Y-Gurl says:

    What happened to the multi million dollar CCTV stystem that SERCO were supposed to install, why so many calls for the public cell phone video again? @ Hmmmmmmmmm totally agree, we need a change at the top, gun crime general crime all up under the current management, morale at an all time low, and each Governor swallows the crime stats hook , line, and sinker

  22. Hmmmmmmm..... says:

    Flog them first……Then jail.
