    Remind me again why we can’t own a can of pepper spray? This is BS.

    We aren’t safe in our own homes during broad daylight on a Tuesday!!

    Bermuda is circling the drain.

    The Smith’s Parish Council is gravely concerned to learn about this heinous act perpetrated upon residents of Smith Parish — and any resident of Bermuda. We pride ourselves in being one of the safest parishes on the Island. We hope that the public assists the police so that these miscreants can be apprehended quickly and go before the Courts. We extend our thoughts and prayers for the victims. — Dr. Lana Talbot, Chairman

    To those who want to know precisely where the (alleged) attack took place, the immediate neighbours know because of the police presence yesterday afternoon and the police are being vague in order to protect the identity of the victims. If you want salacious details, I suggest you try social media. It has no filters and no verification of facts.
