    Thank you BPS. and to all you out there: if you know something, SAY SOMETHING! If you do not, you are responsible for putting Bermuda into a third world banana republic run by thugs.

    OK, caught with a firearm. Lets start with an automatic 10 years behind bars.. Others will think twice about carry a gun moving foward

      Only an automatic 10 years behind bars!?!?! How about life behind bars, no parole for being a terrorist. Anyone possessing an illegal firearm in Bermuda should be brought up on terrorist charges since this is an act of terrorism. We’ve helped America by taking the refugees wrongly charged with terrorism of their hands. We should make a deal with America to take our REAL terrorist off our hands. Send them to a terrorist camp and let the CIA have their way with them.

    Happy hunting BPS!

    Sadly even if they catch the person the only thing they will be sent to a hotel with free Yoga and many other amenities the average law abiding citizen can’t afford complimentary of the Bermudian tax payer. Isn’t the PLP sooooo nice giving prisoners the opportunity to practice yoga? What I would like to know is how many law abiding citizen reading this can afford yoga classes? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

    Agree with The Original Truth, we will spend 1000s giving him a fair trial, we will hear what a good boy he is, and than if we are lucky, we can spend more thousands and send him to camp. Sick of it, people should need licenses to have kids, because they don’t take care of them, the system has to pay constantly! IMO
