  4. Oh yah? says:

    All them cameras around there and the authorities still won’t be able to bring a culprit to justice .

    • Big Brotha says:

      Cameras should be used as a deterrent, to support a criminal case or when there are no other leads. Woodys was PACKED full of people today. If nobody is brought into custody, charged and convicted it will because of people not cameras. Nobody wants to come forward, everyone pretends they didn’t see anything, until it is someone in our circle of friends and family then we beg for someone to speak up.

      Please stop this senseless fighting! People, when you think of this victim think of him as if he was a member of your own family and help. speak up, say something, send the police your phone videos, selfies, pictures ..anything or call crimestoppers. Its anonymous. The next victim could be your son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle or father.

        How can anyone of disliked that comment? What is there to dislike??????

  5. BenJammin says:

    I’m terrified for this years crime and motor accident statistics.

  6. Seriously says:

    Cameras wouldn’t have seen it where that happened

    • Pete says:

      must`ve been at the scene when it took place to know about cameras not recording.

  7. The Ridiculist says:

    I take it was pretty serious since the ambulance had a police escort, with the ambulance moving at the fastest speed I have ever seen an ambulance move on Bermuda Roads..hope the person is ok..

  8. lizard says:

    Why all of the sirens coming through town – doesn’t Somerset/Southampton have police and a fire service. One stabbing – drama queens.

    • Just Curious says:

      No, they certainly weren’t being drama queens. There were groups of young men fighting at the scene, some obviously with weapons. They police didn’t know what they would come up against. Should they have sent one cruiser, with two officers, to tackle that???

      • Big Brotha says:

        There were also a bunch of punk kids fighting in Dockyard. Its started out with one or two 13-15 year old young punks fighting, and then a few more jumped in. The police broke it up, and they went their own way, then awhile later it started again. trust me the police were busy in dockyard.

        • Ann says:

          Where are the parents? Start charging parents for their underage thug behavior, it’s not free to send out all these services, and who do you think pays when they get injured, the working public.

    • John says:

      And the fire service are to do what?

      • Hair says:

        Spray them down, to cool them down!! Duh…

      • Big Brotha says:

        John, The Fire Service are first responders and while many think they just sit at the station and wait on fires they actually attend most accidents. Most firemen are also trained EMTs and because we have substations in the East and West they can get to a scene much faster then waiting on an ambulance from KEMH.

        • John says:

          I did not say they don’t do anything but an ambulance is now at port royal so they respond the same. Can’t see where I said they don’t do anything

        • Whistling Frog says:

          @ Big Brotha: From my observation, yes the fire service is the first on the scene to give assistance but, you’d also have to wait for them to say that an ambulance is needed which takes up more time having to wait to be transported to the hospital. Why can’t they be dispatched at the same time?

          • NO MORE WAR says:

            for the most part the Police actually arrive on the scene prior to any other first responder. If there’s violence the ambulance and fire wait until it is safe to go in. If I were a police officer I wouldn’t want to deal with those hooligans with just a few officers.

  9. Just One says:

    Just lock up all the gangsters, sick of this nonsense!

  10. D says:

    these kids…..smh

  11. Charlly X says:

    Why so presumptuous in the Peanut Gallery ? Smh ! good gossip. Lol

  12. Ann says:

    A glorious day in Bermuda, and once again, punk thugs have to ruin it, why can’t we send funds to a country that would welcome the cash and show these want a be gangsters what it’s really like. I’m guessing for each one we send to some desolate country we could save millions. $86,000 dollars a year per prisoner, please those funds could be used in a many positive ways. I’m tired of all the dumbness that we refuse to do anything about.

  13. BermudaRat says:

    And are we watching that this is just where the America’s Cup teams (not just Oracle) are to be based ???

    • Will says:

      artemis racing, swedish team is based next door

  14. done says:

    There is actually a KEMH ambulance in the west now, so they are first responders

  15. Confused says:

    Just bulldoze that place down. Seems something retarded happens there on a regular basis.

    • Family Man says:

      They never seem to have a problem getting their liquor license renewed do they?

  16. Hurting says:

    Who really cares about this America’s cup

  17. Why says:

    Why come on here and ask a STUPID questions and you already know the answer but obviously just want something to say. Go think about it. Seriously

  18. herro says:

    Do u notice when things like this happens the cameras are never one

  19. uncle says:

    but why the police let the guy who stabbed him walk off seriously dun the police let the guy walk rait out d gate no effort to stop him

    • NO MORE WAR says:

      Who was the guy? What was he wearing? Did you point him out to the police? Put up or shut up!!!

  20. Be Careful What you Wish For says:

    Well, they must not have known who did it Uncle. If you do report it to the Police ASAP. Someone stabling another human being… needs help in a big way.
