    Please, this is something we seriously need to address as a community as this behavior can’t be allowed to continue.

  2. puzzled says:

    St. Anne’s Road is next to Henry VIII?

  3. john Does says:

    Prison does not seam to work with all the luxuries which Westgate offers. Gym, cableTV, Aircon, 3 square meals a day. Flogging in the town square in front of all their friends and relatives may be a better deterrent in today society.

  4. Thats It says:

    Broad daylight, end of day so presume fair amount of traffic, decent description. someone knows or saw something. Where are the Dockyard tourist when we need them. The scum when caught need to take a very very long vacation never to be seen again. Hope the victims are ok

  5. Point boy says:

    So who do we blame for this one Zane?

    • Answer says:

      Ask Jeff Baron from the oba/UBP he said he had a plan. After 4 years the plan should be finish with the 12 seat party.

      • nerema says:

        I thought Pastor Bean had a holistic plan to stop this from happening. That’s what we’re paying him to do. It seems to have got worse.

      • Anbu says:

        Plp in charge now. Jeff dont owe u jack all! Typical plp. Want everyone else to do their job for them. Fix it yourself. Considering they have all the answers.

    • Onion Jiuce says:

      Nah, report said he was tall.

  6. Oh,I see now says:

    I don’t get it when people say Westgate Prison doesn’t work.Individuals going to prison for the first time or those on their fifth visit to jail obviously have life hang ups already.Why are people leaving it up to a jail to wave a magic wand and fix YEARS of built up issues.Stop blaming the schools,prisons and society and let these men take ownership of their &@?$ UPS for once in their life.

  7. Rohn Jankin says:

    Aaah life under the PLP …….where are the jobs ?

  8. Stevie says:

    Zane going to say something. No. But if OBA in charge, he would be mouthing off.

  9. Wahoo juice says:

    Send them overseas our $80k per year is not a deterent.

  10. Hair says:

    Gotta look for that white bike, always seem when incidences occur that they are two males on a white bike!! To bad they didn’t get license plate, but it was probably stolen anyway…Welcome to the “NEW” Bermuda…

  11. Real Deal says:

    Chain them up on Front Street, give them only bread and water, give them public beatings. Medically disable their fingers so they cannot use their hands anymore. Treat them like they deserve to be treated. Court system here is too weak on those who deserve it, and punishes too harshly those who do not.

    • Anbu says:

      Cant do that tho. They r probably “nice” boys who just gave their lives to jesus. Or just applied for higher education. Blah blah blah. U know how it goes. Get ya mommy to speak on your behalf in court and get a slap on the wrist. Smh

  12. Saltine says:

    Bring back the tourists! That’s what these punks would deserve.

  13. Hello says:

    This is so sad. We can not even take a walk without someone attacking us. What has this island come too? How can we possibly feel safe.
    This boys/men need to be punished. We keep looking for a solution, but what possibly can change the behavior in these boys.

  14. Oh,I see now says:

    When each and every family member of these thugs stops turning a blind eye to the anti social behavior we will begin to see some change.Its to bad the barn door is open in Somerset and the horse is in Paget about now……sigh
