    I swear something is wrong with these peoples heads. I mean come on, you know what, forget rehabilitation, if these goons can’t put down their weapons to assist their country, then they deserve to be banished!!

      Then who’s problem do you think they will become??? These people are Bermuda’s problem and Bermuda needs to start cracking down on these people. Capital punishment anyone? A point needs to be made.

        Anyone remember the REAL reason capital punishment (in the Bda context) was abolished ?

        • Tim says:

          Do you??? If capital punishment is out of the question then the justice system and government of Bermuda needs an overhaul. They need to suck it up and ask the other countries out there for help on this problem. The reason gang violence is getting so bad is they know they can get away with it. Once Bermuda starts nipping it in the butt rather than constantly licking their ever growing and infecting wounds they will finally get a hold on this violence.

    Hello, I think they need to do a clean sweep as they did with the drug persons sometime ago and round up all the wanna be gang (boys)place them on an island let them shoot it out,and the last one standing shoot him. These are the people that are supposed to care for us when we get older so what state do u think we will be in?

    The issue I have is that they won’t be satisfied with kiiling off each other…they will go for Families and Friends because theire family or friends was hurt or killed!!! This is becoming more than just “drug & territorial” and as a country we NEED to pull together and “Take Our Country Back”!!! This freaks are not the majority THEY ARE THE MINORITY and they can/Will only continue If we allow them to!!! If you know your family member is part of the problem (however small it may be) then they need to be dealt with (lawfully), if your friend or even friend or a friend is out there doing a pack of crap….then they to need to be dealt with (again, lawfully)!!!!!!!!
