Bermuda Police Service On Social Media Post

July 20, 2020 | 1 Comment

A “social media post, accompanied by a video clip, alleging wrongdoing on the part of officers during a traffic stop on Friday” does “not depict the full details of what transpired during that traffic stop,” the police said today.

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service is aware of a social media post, accompanied by a video clip, alleging wrongdoing on the part of officers during a traffic stop on Friday 17th July.

“The video clip and the account of the events given in that social media post, do not depict the full details of what transpired during that traffic stop.

“The driver of the vehicle has not lodged a formal complaint against the officers involved and the Bermuda Police Service has made a number of attempts to speak with that person to bring resolution to the situation and we continue to do so.

“A BPS spokesperson did reach that person by phone, to arrange a meeting with Commissioner Stephen Corbishley but, was told it would not be until next week, that the individual may be able to meet to discuss the situation.

“The BPS has reviewed footage from the bodycams worn by the officers during the traffic stop and determined that the officers followed proper protocol during the execution of their duties whilst responding to a report of a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner.”

    Way too many people are falling hook line and sinker for all of these ‘social media’ videos. They don’t seem to realize that in 99% of all instances they are started AFTER the salient and relevant stuff has already happened just to suit the poster’s agenda. And in this instance the complainant’s daughter exits the car and asks the question that’s become so popular since November 1998 .. ‘Do you know who he is ?’

    Let’s not forget that a certain senior sitting member of Parliament while in opposition deliberately altered a video recording to make himself look better and his loyal followers swallowed the whole thing and went silent when the truth was revealed.
