‘Anti-Social Behaviour’ Involving Young People

August 12, 2022

The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] said they are “aware of video clips circulating on social media, showing what appear to be school aged young people engaged in what we’re told are pre-arranged fights in the City of Hamilton during social events.”

A police spokesperson said, “While no complaint has been received by police, we are keen to identify individuals involved, as well as their parents, in order to have conversations with them about this behaviour.

“Please contact our 211 non-emergency line, the main police number 295-0011 or, share the information with a police officer you know.”

Chief Inspector, Alex Rollin said: “Throughout the course of the summer it has come to our attention that groups of children are frequenting the city of Hamilton [or events] with the intention of engaging in anti-social behaviour inclusive of fighting.

“This appeal is aimed at parents and guardians of our youngsters. Part of solving the challenge lies with you and the knowledge of where your child is, who they are with and what they are doing. Conversations must be had about the impacts of violence and how it effects families and beyond.”

Mr. Rollin added: “Young people have to weigh up their future aspirations against petty beef and showboating for friends. Parents and guardians must stress the importance of life, goals and being a productive member of the community.

“While I mention parents and guardians, this goes far beyond them. Extended and immediate family as well friends, should look to take any opportunity to guide young people on to the right path. Let us put in the effort early on, while they are developing decision making skills and learning about consequences of actions to try and steer them away from negative behaviours.”

    Well the Chief Inspector needs to get his ass out there and be available when this occurs and arrest these young children.
    Their parents will show up in 5 minutes once they get a text or call and he can and others confront them on our turf.

    You insist on hiring a government that has done nothing but increase the debt.
    There is nothing for Bermudians. Bermuda has absolutely nothing to offer.

    How do you make this a political or police issue…it’s YOUR children and YOU the parents…The problem is there is no accountability for anything…not for parents not for children …you all watch too much reality TV …they are all desentised …the first thing they do is whip out their camera …instead of calling for help or trying to help in situations..it sickens me. You if aren’t going to put the time in teaching and guiding your children then don’t have them cause they then become everyone’s else’s problem to fix ….
