    ATM has cameras, there are a number of shops with in a couple feet of the ATM, the Square is a couple feet away which ALWAYS have people present so there should be enough info available to catch those involved.

    Nandi and Kenny up there in St. George’s asleep at the wheel.

    • Dummas Says What? says:

      Compare what the PLP did for St Georges during their 14 years. No cruise ships, blew up hotel and closed down the golf course and compare that with what the OBA has accomplished in 3 years.

    • Zevon says:

      So who closed the police station? Remind us.

    • WillSee says:

      There is no station in St. George’s
      Who removed it?

      • Time Shall Tell says:

        Actually there is a police station in St.George’s.

    Thank you Senator Ming for ALWAYS keeping St George’s at the forefront. Your statement last week was timely and true!! The OBA act like they care about St George’s but in reality both of the St George’s representatives have failed their respective areas. Now you have Senator Fahy piping in on St George’s another area for him to cause civil unrest!!! Stay focused Renee you are doing well and your people know that you are genuine and care about them.

    The government needs to reinstate a full-time police presence in the town of St. George’s! They cannot respond to incidents in a timely manner from their current position. If the government can find funding for the Americas Cup then surely they can find the funding to provide adequate policing for the people of the Town of St. George’s!

    Kennedy Bascome, why are you being silent on this issue?

    cameras everywhere dont capture anything? didnt bermuda get forced into Big Brother state years ago and what has it done for us? Nothing. No justice. Just spying and utterly no privacy. 1984 fulfilled. What will be the next useless thing they implement on us?

    People in Bermuda should be allowed to “stand their ground.” If you wanna come rob someone then you will have to face the reality. . Bout time Bermuda got some brains and passed a law like that. These bullies keep getting away with it all because the justice system and court systems pamper criminals and spank their wrists instead of physically punishing them. This is typical punk behaviour you see in America and elswhere, wannabe tough guy losers who think they have to beat up people to feel big. Only little tiny men do things like that.

    Pass a law where you tattoo “Wimp” or “Loser” or “Coward” on their forhead, as part of their sentence. Then the rest of their lives they and everyone can know what they really are when they look in their face.

    Many folk get paid on fridays or need to do business. This particular act may have lasted less than 4 minutes….there are cameras all over the place. We need to have night court, the Courts need to set early trial dates, if they need to hire additional staff or temporary staff. I believe the trial dates for those young men involved in that fight on Court Street a month ago has been set for July…so right now other folk do their dumbness with no concern about being caught. Earlier trials send messages.

    Not a comment about the victim or the criminal for that matter…hmmm.

    Just the usual rah rah about nah nah…pointing fingers…talking loud but ain’t saying nothing.

    Robberies of this nature are more of an opportunistic crime…1% chance of intervening…people participation in battling this crime that we have now in bermy is the ONLY solution…black and white need to weed out the good from the bad…its not in the govt’s hands…its in OURS! those of you who keep crying foul and declaring that this is YOUR islands…then let’s see YOU! CLEAN UP THE MESS!

    The ONLY way a govt.can provide the safety Y’ALL want… would be to implement martial law…total control over EVERY ONE.

    Enjoy.

    Two guest workers were attacked a few days before, in St. George,s. There need to be regular foot patrols , and surely road check-points are crucial..Many of these crimes are unpredictable and last a few minutes..thus it is impossible for the po lice to be everywhere…Maybe there needs to be an increase in funding for the po lice. A careful eye will monitor the thousands attending the Americas Cup events, I know the Reserve Police have been embodied for this period. Did the person usin g the ATM machine know the robbers ? Was this a crime of opportunity ? Are the streets of the Town of St. George,s becoming less and less safe ? If the police have higher visibility that would help.
