Nine firearms incidents in three months “Crisis” says Ben Smith

I am sickened, angry, but most of all saddened to learn that there has been yet another gun incident in Bermuda. The fact that there are multiple victims compounds the severity of this incident.


Perpetrators are becoming more and more reckless with no fear of shooting in broad daylight and actions like these need to end. Nine gun incidents in three months is irreprehensible. What is becoming of our island home? Where has the moral fibre gone?


Bermuda was once a peaceful paradise and we can no longer claim that easily but we need our island home to return to what it once was—a place where we could move around without apprehension.


I would like to implore members of the public to support the Bermuda Police Service during this ongoing investigation. The perpetrators must be brought to justice. We cannot afford to remain silent.
