    Until the authorities get serious about dishing out very long sentences these wannabe thugs are going to get much worse!

    • Free Bermuda says:

      Somebody could get locked up for life and we’d just forget about them. Increasing sentences does not change this mindset, nobody want to go to prison. We need to find better ways to reach them instead of just football and cricket, find better outlets.

    • Wakedafoxup says:

      @realonion At what point does a “wannabe thug” become a real thug. Many people have been killed and wounded. Wouldn’t you class these as the textbook definition of thugs?

    • Nanny Pat says:

      How about the witnesses start sharing some info.
      No more “nobody saw nuthin.”

    these shootings are getting ridiculous there affecting our children

  3. Seriously says:

    A start would be all gun crime offences will see the offenders shipped overseas for there prison term.

    • Zevon says:

      That’s a good idea.

      Make their lives miserable. It’s what they deserve.

      • john says:

        the youth are products of our environment, clearly wrong decisions have been made over the years and we are seeing the ramifications of it.

    • john says:

      At whose expense? what country is going to willingly take another country’s prisoners. I think the problem lies deeper then the youth, we need to fix the home environments, get Bermudians back to work with livable wages, so they not working two or three jobs to survive while their kids run rampant with no supervision.
