    When an article like this is viewed as good news (which it is) it says a lot about what has become of this place.

      Well you can’t expect Bermuda to stay the sleepy little island it once was when the whole world has integrated and become smaller by technology, travel, etc..

      There are guns here, we already know that, but they are used by gang members to shoot other gang members for the most part..

      I’d say it’s still quite ‘safe’ compared to most other places..
