    The Usual Suspects

    When you find them, make it law and chop their hands off. Then they cant steal ever again. You wanna force us to legalize gay marriage, adopting laws of other nations, then let’s adopt this law from other nations, which acts as a successful crime deterrant.

    • Ughhhh says:

      I take it you are a homophobe. You probably had a rough time growing up huh? You need more love

      • Anbu says:

        Yes because all this “love” we r showing these little boys is working to curb the issue right?

      • andre says:

        Being against same sex marriage does not make you Homophobic!

      • .am says:

        I suspect the contrary. They’re saying if you’re not modern enough to embrace SSM, then at least be archaic enough to chop off people’s hands for stealing.

      • Real Deal says:

        I am sure you had a rough time growing up. You needed less “love”

      • Top Gear says:

        using your logic I take it you are labour,bacon and gammon.

      • Real Deal says:

        You probably had a rough time growing up huh? You needed less “love”

    • Patricia says:

      agree

    • PBanks says:

      Ah, the Sharia Law initiative as practiced in beacons of liberty like Saudi Arabia.

      While I despise acts of theft, especially armed theft, that suggestion would never come into play. At least from the lawmakers.

  3. frank says:

    there is no need for this place to be open at this hour
    the amount of trouble that has generated at this place it should be made to shut down at 8pm

    • Youngin says:

      That is the most stupid suggestion. Punish a private establishment because of crime that your bad parenting created. *not you personally*

    • Juicy says:

      They are a business and that’s when they make their money. It’s pretty simple. Any place can be robbed at any time, let’s be honest..

    • question says:

      Classic blaming the victim.
      The ‘trouble generated’ was generated by the criminals, not by the establishment. But you would never admit that.

    • wahoo says:

      like docksiders?

    • Real Deal says:

      ice queen aint been in the paper for a long time

    • berm girl says:

      Ridiculous to suggest such a thing, Ice Queen does business late at night – why should they shut down? This restaurant has been serving Bermuda for DECADES at night with very few incidents and none for quite a very long time. Are you suggesting Ice Queen should close during its busiest hours because three loser thugs decided to walk through the doors and commit a crime?

  4. Noway! says:

    Get rid of the dark or tinted visors in Bermuda period damn what’s it going to take as long as we have those police aren’t going to catch all criminals

  5. Noway! says:

    Get rid of the dark or tinted visors in Bermuda period damn what’s it going to take as long as we have those police aren’t going to catch all criminals also icequeen needs to have after hours security or police presence

  6. puzzled says:

    Build a wall.

  7. MM says:

    Ice Queen is a good spot they should not have to close early. More stringent measu res by business owners may result in higher costs. Swifter trials and stiffer penalties will be part of reducing crime. Yes ban tinted visors and purchase sunshades. All these businesses that are isolated from the main roads, or close late at night need stronger deterrerents to protect themselves. What happen to noisy panic alarms.

  8. chocolate coins says:

    Pay by Credit Card or Burtcoin only.

    No more robberies by mamma’s byes.

  9. MM says:

    How often do we sj noee a marked police car p arked at a business establishment out in the country. How long does it take from arrest to trial ? That process may need to be revamped. When was the last time you saw in uniform officers on foot in the country ? We heard of the Royal Berm uda Regiment , can they assist the police with road vehicle checks. some may cry police state, I would rather that than criminals moving with impunity.

  10. Me says:

    Youths feeling the squeeze wait until the taxes kick in and burtcoin industry locks them out

  11. drip ship says:

    it is beyond time to mollycoddle and babysit these little mommas boy punks. they need to be taught a lesson in life without parole in a Russian Prison “The Black Dolphin” never to return
