June 11, 2021 | 18 Comments

The police have appealed for anyone who may have recorded the Revolve event to contact them, noting that while videos and photographs of the event are being circulated on social media “they cannot be submitted as evidence before a court of law.”

A police spokesperson said, “As part of the police investigation into the Revolve boating event which took place on Tuesday of this week, the Bermuda Police Service [BPS] is requesting that anyone who may have video recorded the event, to please get in contact with Chief Inspector Robert Cardwell, Officer in charge, Police Tactical Support Division on 717-0828, the main police number 295-0011or, via email: rcardwell@bps.bm.

“The BPS is aware of the numerous video clips and photographs of the event being circulated on social media and while these may assist with the ongoing investigation into the matter, they cannot be submitted as evidence before a court of law.”

Chief Inspector Cardwell said: “Obtaining original video recordings of what transpired on Tuesday, will be significant in our efforts to determine what charges, if any, are to be brought against those responsible and a file submitted to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for a decision on anyone being brought before the courts in connection with this incident.”

    Would C.I. Cardwell elaborate on the “investigation” into The Horticultural Hall event?

  2. question says:

    What are the police doing about the champagne party attended by Burt where covid laws were broken? I’m sure the police service agrees that laws should apply equally to everyone, right?

    • wahoo says:

      That is how it is supposed to work…but Bermuda is another world as the song goes.

  3. Final Nail in Coffin for Tourism says:

    Nothing says please come visit our beautiful island more than:

    1-Oppressive rules and regulations
    2-Police investigations supported by the country’s Tourism authority
    3-lack of basic public service due to industrial action
    4-high prices and lack of entertainment options
    5-medicore levels of service
    6-and the best of all–we know what you want, because Bermuda is special

    Is it any wonder why our tourism product is in the tank….

    What about the plague rat who got off the plane and caused the recent lockdown and indirectly 18 deaths?

    Look, i support the police, I even support most of what the PLP have done to control the pandemic in Bermuda, but the raft-up ban is clearly stupid and inconsistent with other rules. And such a waste of effort.

    Going to dinner (inside) with 6 friends later, but we can raft up two boats outside with the same 6 friends.

  5. lost ball says:

    1. Who authorized it?
    2. The boat captains have been bitching about no work, they get some but allow this to happen?
    3. Where was the Coast Guard? Day off?
    4. Were all and every required permits signed off ( work permits or anything else possibly required)?
    There are just to many holes in this event and OTHERS that have happened.

    Do as I say, not as I do…
    I have not seen any appeal by the BPS about videos of the St Regis crap. This gov constantly displays it’s arrogance and disregard for it’s laws. This double standard nonsense has to stop.

  7. Ringmaster says:

    There’s more chance of the Premier being charged over the St Regis party Covid breaches than anyone sending in videos of the Revolve event.

  8. Dreama says:

    They had permission for everything. Yes, even the raft up. What everyone is failing to realize is that this was not recreational. For those who may not understand how the influencers work, imagine it like this, they were basically shooting a commercial. It’s a pretend event to mimic a real party. It was probably the safest gathering the island has seen since the beginning of this pandemic as all the influencers and all personal were vaccinated. Also, the reason why they don’t hire Bermudian photographers or models is because they need to uphold a certain creative and professional standard. Just because you are qualified to use equipment doesn’t mean you’re going to get the same result as their consistent team. No rules were broken here. Remember folks, this was not recreational.

    • Unbelievable says:

      With like “Dreama” you certainly are one.

      • Dreama says:

        If this was recreational then where was the advertising and publicity ya bo bo? How come no one knew shaggy was here until he left? Ya. Shu , get from round here.

    • JimmyC says:

      Did they get work permits?

  9. vaccinated says:

    SO let me guess, no police officers are on social media, LMAO

  10. Pixie says:

    What the police need to do is investigate Emperor Burt and him breaking his own rules! Smdh!

  11. Unbelievable says:

    You’re all dreaming if anything will happen here. I mean, who do prosecute? The boat operators? The event planner? The BTA? Shaggy?

  12. puzzled says:

    Why do the police want pictures/video’s.
    They have enough already.
    Come on COP. Your playing pollytiks.

  13. Common Sense says:

    And while we waste time on a police investigation that isn’t worth pursuing, literally thousands of people’s time is wasted with the incompetence of those Harbour Rd traffic lights.

    1 This morning rush hour they allowed cars travelling west, so a queue of 5 cars that way and thousands back up to Somerset. Just run 1 lane and divert the few westbound cars.

    2 The lights are broken so two W&E guys flip a sign all day.

    3 I have travelled that route multiple times, and rarely see anyone actually working on the wall. Nobody today at all.

    Utter incompetence and thousands of wasted hours. Please fix this W&E.
