I commend the Rise Above Bermuda group, and I hope that they are able to really do some good with the problem of gang violence in Bermuda. However, I can’t help but feel that they made a rather poor choice of words when they described themselves as ‘part military organisation’. The last thing that we need is to inflame the situation by using military terminologies like that.
Its probably nothing, but reading it certainly did raise an eyebrow.
I hope that the turnout for this Friday’s peace rally in Par-la-Ville Park at 7pm goes well.
