A police spokesperson said, “Police and first responders attended to a report of a male walking on the street in the area of North Shore Road in Pembroke in a compromised state this morning.

“The man was subsequently taken to the hospital via ambulance where he is being fully assessed.”

Update 12.45pm:
The police added, “The incident took place at a few minutes before 11:30am on Monday, on North Shore Devonshire and Pembroke areas.

“Police are aware that videos of the incident are circulating, and we are appealing to those who receive the image[s] not to pass them on.”

    Another broken man – when will there be enough?

    • Sad, and just to think that there are people around the world that streak for fun.

    • Real Deal says:

      blame females for that. females treat guys hard in Bermuda. there are more male then females the balance is not right. this why you get the situation where 1 female is playing like 6 guys.

  2. Proud Bermudian says:

    Feeling so sorry for this young man….May he be fine. We need to help each other, not post and tell. God Bless him, and may be recover fully.

  3. Tricia says:

    He was possibly on drugs?

    • Justice Sousa says:

      probably — damage was done — why and who are the “sane” to judge
      probably needed to flex

  4. The Dark Knight Returns says:

    I hope this man gets the help he needs.

    Seriously BPS why do you constantly say do not share video? Is it against the law to share videos like this? If it is please direct us to the legislation otherwise don’t waste your time saying it.

    This is 2017 and is a technology world we live in. By the time you make such a ridiculous statement the footage has been viewed 50,000 times already. SMDH.

      It doesn’t have to be illegal – it’s unethical.

    • spider says:

      Obscene Publications Act 1973 Section 3.

      • Positive Pessimist says:

        That doesn’t count. It’s not like someone is taking photos of people and publishing them in a magazine. If someone took a still of the man, put it on a poster and stuck it up om a wall in the middle of town, then it would fall under this Act. Sharing a video doesn’t. If that’s the case, half the population would be in prison for what they look at on their computers and phones every day. There’s no law against looking at that stuff or even sharing it-unless children are involved.

        • Jacques Cousteaux says:

          if the video was of you, would you want everyone watching it and having it on their phones?

          • Rocky27 says:

            Well, no. But then again, I wouldn’t be running around naked in public.

        • spider says:

          You need to read the law for yourself try telling a judge it doesn’t count.

    • Wahoo says:

      I think that the sharing of videos when someone is at a low point in their lives is tacky and immoral it is a shame that people even need to be asked to respect others. This is a huge problem there does not need to be legislation to force good judgement or plain old fashioned decency.

      • NO MORE WAR says:

        Fortunately tacky or immoral is not against the la. The police are there to enforce law. If it’s not against the law it’s a moot point. There’s freedom of speech so I don’t see the need to add that part to the story it won’t change. Hell people are killing people and that’s totally against the law.

      • Justice Sousa says:

        guess you all know more than “US” who knows he is at a low point in his life – there was no signage — could of just been stoned – had to much of a wake and bake — or was doing it for a dare — who are we to jusdge

        • Leave it outtt says:

          Its 100% not marijuana that made him do this.

          And how do people justify the videos being circulated? Imagine that being yourselves. You wouldn’t want it going around the island.

          Grow up people.

    • Islandsistah says:

      How does it help the story? The man is in a “compromised” state. That’s really almtou need to know. Satisfy your morbid curiosity somewhere else.

      • Justice Sousa says:

        almtou -hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm please elaborate on the meaning — or can you not spell

    • Positive Pessimist says:

      It’s not illegal unless the videos involve minors. They are just counting on people being decent enough to share the videos-but that won’t happen. There’s another one going around of a poor woman in a supermarket. People are stressed-life is hard and sometimes people just can’t take it. Instead of laughing, we need to have empathy and sympathy for our fellow human beings. We don’t know what it would take for our minds to snap-we can’t assume that the same thing can never happen to any of us, no matter how mentally strong we think we are.

      • NO MORE WAR says:

        Positve Pessimist, I agree. Let’s not make an already police state into an absolute police state. If there are those that want it to be against the law then speak to your area MP with a view of changing the law. Otherwise the police should just deal with the situation. It just seems like a broken record always asking people not to share something that isn’t against the law.

    • Well tell Trump that.

  5. OhJay says:

    ” we need to have empathy and sympathy for our fellow human beings. ”

    LOL…Bermudians will actively fight against equality for all Bermudians…look at SSM for an example.
    Bermudians are not empathetic, we are arrogant and greedy.

  6. Captain Crunch says:

    It is illegal to record someone without their permission, even more illegal if they are naked or in a compromised situation or posisition. It is even more illegal to spread such a recording. Anyone who is posessing or circulating or watching this video should be ashamed of themselves and should be prosecuted and jailed. This island is full of certain types of people who spread such videos of people, as if it is a form of entertainment. This sick crime needs to end, and too many Bermudians take part in it. Who are the weirdos who record these things in the first place? Some degenerates? How and why does it get sent to the first person? From one degenerate to another.

    • sage says:

      Go and tear down all the cctv and private surveillance cameras then.

  7. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot says:

    Police unlikely to do a damn thing… I submit due to lack of the capacity to do so…

  8. bda says:

    “It is illegal to record someone without their permission,”

    …not in a public space.

    “even more illegal if they are naked or in a compromised situation or posisition.”

    No, you need to get a clue.

    “From one degenerate to another.”

    you get the government you vote for.

      Then dont be surprised if someone snatches your phone from u and jams it down your throat. Nuff said
