    Police need to spend some time down at 9 beaches. I’ve seen a lot of suspicious activity down there. I wouldn’t take my family to the beach down there, it doesn’t feel safe.

      • Ya serious says:

        What 600 police? The Police in the last two years gone from 485 to 400. By this time next year they will be under 400 thanks to budget cuts and trying to get rid of West Indian Officers. Why you think the stations closed. They don’t have enough Police Officers.

    Anyone who assaults a 71 yr old should be ashamed of themselves. They are nothing but cowards. The law needs to deal with people like them Lock them up and throw away the key. We do not need people around like that in our community.

      As I have said many times before rent some cells at Guantanamo Bay and send them there it would be half the price we are paying now for the luxury Hotel at the west Gate hotel

    Im not one bit in favour of violence in any way but with the condition that the Bermudian and Global system are in, this is a reflection of the times and you cannot suppress it! The systematic structure creates monsters, thieves, crooks and criminals therefore who is to blame? The monsters or the crooks? or the system for creating and allowing situations like this to commence? Dont be fooled! The systems EVIL!!!
