    stun guns!!!!! how are all these getting into Bermuda? has anything ever been detected by the xray machine at the docks?

    This whole thing sounds very fishy to me?? You have two people with stun guns who accosted two unarmed people at 8.30pm and they leave EMPTY handed, and the ones that got accosted waited until the next day at 3.30pm to report this?? This whole report is as fake as a $3 bill!! If it isn’t, then we have just found the 4 biggest losers in Bermuda!!! If the Police actually believe this story, then they need to be replaced by an outside police force!!

      Inspector Kangoocar, why would anyone waste their time making this report if it wasn’t true?? Did you ever consider the victims might be hesitant to become involved in something like this? Maybe they left empty handed because the victims had nothing of value??
      Maybe these thug wannabes didn’t have the balls to actually use the stun guns..?
      A lot of questions that you don’t have the answers to…

      Yet after reading an article on Bernews, yet assume you have more common sense than the Police who are trained to deal with these things LOL..

      Who’s the real fool?

    Stun guns!! Oh well, be thankful that they were not hit with pepper spray. There would really be an uproar if that happened.

    That particular area should have or does have cctv Where do stun guns come from, well we have ships that pass by Bermuda, and many small boats as well as yachts that can be ten miles out and more. The X-ray machine on the docks cannot have an eye on all our borders, it is stationary. The same question was asked how do drugs get into our prisons, we try to be secure, but we have limited resources. When Americas Cup unfolds in May and June, no doubt , there will be far greater resources and man-power in use. The crime was not reported for over 12 hours, that may be food for thought, and will be closely looked at.

    Although I don’t like any kind of guns at all, at least with stun guns, people need not die.

  6. Oh,I see now says:

    Can’t get life for a stun gun ,I wonder if these long sentences are working on some of the bottom feeders.

  7. Nanny Pat says:

    Let me guess, the two with the stun guns don’t have jobs under this horrible OBA govt and they needed to rob these other two so they could buy nappies and formula for their babies?
    I’m so sure.

    we also have past and present MP’s who are exempt from customs search upon entering Bermuda.
