    Please BERNEWS..stop referring to them as MEN. Men are what young male children aspire to be someday. These are not men, they are sorry excusses for males.

    guess theres no point in reporting the colour of skin/race of these individuals anymore….

  3. Mbaya Avunaye says:

    A very stern message needs to be sent to these Pirates and Hijackers.
    A prison term in addition to being placed on road clean up duty with a sign displaying the crime.

      i agree mate! theres no deterrent for these little punks, most of them end up getting off or just a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again.. send a clear and strong message is exactly what is needed. including prisoners up westgate, none of this kfc every friday bullsh!t. those guys whould be chained together and go end to end cleaning up bermuda and trimming trees.. beaches, public parks, roadsides, railway trails etc.

    The moment we breathe a sigh of relief of bad news, bad news follows.Also the correct name of this road is Spring Benny Road.

    • Golden says:

      Although there is a road named Spring Benny Road, there is another lane that is named Benny’s Bay Road.

    • so-n-so says:

      golden is correct, is it a road off of Spring Benny Road.

  5. Y.N.W.A. says:

    Its also worth noting that the second suspect (5’5″) is more than likely a female. Perhaps the same persons that robbed Serpentine Liquors

    • Smh says:

      I’m a 22 year old female. And I have many guy friends that are around my height…… (I am 5’1″)…. There are many short males walking around, trust me.

      • Y.N.W.A. says:

        Ok, so it is either a female or a young boy, which is worse. I’m more inclined to think that it is a female.

  6. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Woman…how come you didn’t just run them over in your car that they damaged with their machetes!? Let me see…2 men with machetes…me and a one ton weapon. Easy answer!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mbaya Avunaye says:

      2 wrongs do not make a right. Some of us injuring another human even in self defense have great difficulty dealing with that act.Please. We have laws to help maintain order. Make use of them.

      • Truth is killin' me... says:

        Trust me, my mother taught me that two wrongs don’t make a right and I would have been right in this instance. I think the public would agree Mbaya that my life was threatened and I needed to do what I did if it was me in this situation. You sound like these victims that let predators do what they want to you and then cry about it after the fact. TAKE A STAND AND BE COUNTED or end up a statistic!

        • Mbyaya Avunaye says:

          @ Truth.15 years after taking my stand in that area, I still have nightmares. yes after the fact. After the fact

    Outlaws and bandits making mockery of civilization , Again !

  8. SMH says:

    She should have ran their butts over. That way they wouldn’t of gotten away with what they done.

  9. Mad Dawg says:

    They should check which of the lovely young men has been let out on parole recently.

  10. Oh really says:

    I too would have ran them down with the car,trust me,they would NOT be getting back up!

    • Bermudian@heart.. says:

      LOL…no they wouldn’t thats for sure

    • 50 Cent says:

      Me too. Lay their a$ses down paramedics get em up.

  11. Cowards Of The Country says:

    One day these cowards are gonna rob the wrong people and the tables will be turned on them. We need to add hard labor as a punishment for these low life’s.

    • Come correct says:

      They shouldn’t be capable of hard labour after they rob that wrong person. Put your hand on a hot stove and you only do it once, that’s because pain is the best teacher. Nothing likes licks lol.

  12. Neighbor says:

    Ok I live in the area actually a few houses down and at the time of the robbery this family was in their beds or the son was just getting home from work. And the car is NEW. The son had just bought it for his mom saved 2
    3 years to buy it for her.

    This family is very mild mannered and I guarentee the son was more concerned with protecting his mother then their possessions.

    I guarentee you the people that did this knew who they were targeting.

    This is a very quite and peaceful neighborhood and it breaks my heart to know that this has happened.

    The young people who did this have no one to blame but themselves for their mindsets. Everyone has hardships, but to steal from someone because you don’t have the moral integrity to go and Work for what you want is sickening.

  13. Kathy says:

    If you can’t earn it, just go and get it! That is the mentality today of the youth of Bermuda. Again, why don’t we implement laws that are shockingly harsh…if you steal, you will have your arms cut off! You WON’T do it again!
