    Someone please help me out here. The people have spoken and elected the PLP by ‘an overwhelming majority’, yet the violence and anti-social behaviour seems to have skyrocketed as a result! Is there a connection, and if so what is it?

    • Hmm says:

      Does the story say PLP involved in a scuffle? Might need to check to see if your brain cells are connected.

      • Double S says:

        Exactly what I thought each and every time the previous Government was blamed for such wanton violence. But now it is different I see.

        • Anonymous says:

          Come on guys. Im not a plp supporter by any stretch of the imagination but thats not fair. Its not like the problems that were the root cause of all this violence were going to magically dissapear if the plp got elected.

            life isn’t fair, get over it pumpkin.

    • ramblings says:

      In my opinion the PLP by encouraging and supporting the illegal act of blocking Parliament have given the impression that the law of the land isn’t important. This kind of anti-social behaviour skyrocketed under the PLP in 2007 and has once again.

    • Nana says:

      Vigilante, it is only going to get worse in the days to come. Sad it will be that way.

    • Tracey Williams says:

      You sound so ignorant! How does this have ANYTHING to do with ANY government being in power???!!!! You think people in situations like this stop and think before they’re about to do dumb s*** because their government is in power???! Think again! This is reality! People will do WHAT THEY WANT AND WHEN THEY WANT! Anybody to blame the government because of people’s actions sounds pathetic! Get a life and step outside your dark hole!

      • ramy says:

        All these negative comments are from our delusional OBA followers, I am sorry to say but you all have to get used to the idea that maybe the PLP will do good for Bermuda and you don’t have to care because it is not where you are from.

    • Vamos says:

      I would not have voted for the PLP, but I believe your logic is flawed. Your point has hints of alt right propaganda infused in it. You are being antagonistic, unsympathetic, and very naive.

    • VJ says:

      Vigilante, this has actually happened SEVERAL times under the watch of the OBA. In fact, my brother has a job working security manning the gates at night because of various incidents that have happened over the last couple of years. This IS NOT a new occurrence, these local guys have been making trouble in Dockyard FOR YEARS!!

      • James Rego says:

        Thousands of people in Dockyard day and night in June, plus cruise ships. Not one incident! What has changed?

    • Street talk says:

      It’s allege to be a pharmacy deal gone wrong.

    • Say Whaat? says:

      A political connection? I guess the OBA supporters are mad so they acting out. Ya happy now?

      • PBanks says:

        Might as well throw that one out there, well done. Why does every issue on this island get ascribed to political ongoings?

    • Coffee says:

      Did the OBA/UBP take ownership of the in 2014 double murder ? Violence doesn’t care about who is governing

    • Positive Pessimist says:

      It has nothing to do with politics. It’s the heat getting to everybody and causing short tempers.

  2. Ms. G says:

    How would be a connection to PLP?

    • Bullnoseh says:

      Yeah its just a coincidence. A really big one.

    • Say Whaat? says:

      There ain’t. That guy don’t even live here. America has it’s own trouble so he should clean his own house 1st.

  3. Hurricane says:

    @ Vigilante, you really do need help and your trying to stir up trouble in the process.

  4. Proud Bermudian says:

    Unbelievable how naïve and ignorant some people are. PLP have not even been in power a month, what the bleep does people fighting have to do with any political party whether it be PLP or OBA. Go get a positive life Vigilante.

    • Chingas says:

      Unless you have been living under a rock you will have seen that the PLP played heavily on peoples emotions in the lead up to the election. People feel empowered with heightened emotions and unfortunately, some are taking it too far.
      The PLP made a lot of promises and must deliver quickly or we will see a lot more of this behavior as the people’s patience wears thin.
      We must be patient and allow time for change.

    • Peter says:

      Your right only 70 days of the first 100 left wow

  5. puzzled says:

    Drugs or rum.
    Lets move on.

  6. Rocky5 says:

    Unintended consequence of running a campaign of “two Bermuda’s”. Many now feel that “their people” are now “in charge” and “they can do as these please without any consequences” ….

    • Rocky5 says:

      “It’s our turn NOW SO STFU”

    • PBanks says:

      So you’re saying that if the OBA had won, these incidents wouldn’t have happened? The people involved would have been all “nope lemme chill, my people aren’t in charge”?

  7. princess says:

    vigilante: your comments are childlike/juvenile

  8. Oh-Sire-Is says:

    Probably hated foreigners, that’s why they had a scuffle with them. No surprise. Hate has deep roots here and shows its ugly face too often. Shame that the side doing it doesn’t see its own guilt and instead just blames the others on everything that happened and happens.

    • Sima says:

      You’re correct on the hate but who has been spewing the most lately… take a good look at the comments

  9. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    Right after Mad Mondays’ gets out hmmmmm…..

  10. Point boy says:

    Not my son! He’s an angel! And brings gifts to!???

    • Sima says:

      You all receive gifts too they’re only bigger. Invite them to the oval table with your friends so they can chill.

  11. Point boy says:

    Got fired because it’s hot outside. I ain’t no Fournier, not my job!!
    I see it all day long.
    There’s a little bus stop being built across from Church Bay. Two months now! A (Bus Stop)!!

    I lost respect for “government” workers years ago! The Unions have you by the collar. And you cripple Bermuda on a whim on their say.

    People are looking for work: Your not doing your job: we pay for it. (Unionized workers in Bermuda get a whole lot for a very little return to our island!)

    I think it’s time that heads roll, and we bring Bermuda up too the standards She deserves!

    No matter your party!!

    • No way Jose says:

      2 months for a bus stop ain’t bad. Took 10 months to build just the SIDEWALK portion along government house on Northshore about 4 or 5 years ago.

  12. Bermyrock says:

    Seriously , awful lot of opinions for a story with no details as to who started it etc !

    • Sima says:


    • Make a new plan Stan says:

      I was thinking the same thing!

      “Circumstances remain unclear at this time.”

      This report couldn’t have been more vague and yet some commenters seem to know WHO started it and they even know WHY.

  13. Zevon says:

    I like the way any fight not resulting in a stabbing is called a “scuffle”.
    Got to downplay it I guess.

  14. Real Onion says:

    Welcome to Bermuda.
    Bring your own Bullet proof vest and body bag,we have run out of them..
