    Soon people will not want to go to, or work at Social clubs anymore. He have half of the social clubs that we had 20 years ago.

    The police do their job, but the judges don’t always back the police or the clubs up when it comes to enforcing the law. He who has the best lawyer wins. Don’t matter if you are wrong or guilty. With the right lawyer, you can be found not guilty.

    Prosecute the group of males, and if found guilty, they ALL should be banned from the club premises for life!

      That would never happen!!

      As a private establishment they can ban members anyway. If they were guests of another member they can also hold that member accountable.

      Social clubs are an important and need more support from positive members.

    Too many egos on this island. Mix that with alcohol and there you have it. Stabbings and assaults everywhere. Bermudians love to drink but they can’t handle their alcohol!! Women included. And for the “men” and I use the term loosely, egging on women to fight in front of a camera, you are lower than low. Get it together BERMUDA.
