I am in Bermuda now. On the way to and from horseshoe bay we talk to the taxi drivers about this situation. Not only did they say the punks got what they deserved for acting like thugs (as one driver put it). But they both said a Bermudian paid the tourists fines.
Reading the Bermuda press some Bermudians have that opinion. That does not make it right. As far as the tourists fines the Bermudian who made that offer changed his mind and now believes that the tourists used excessive force. I have linked to his letter withdrawing his offer to pay the fine.

Hmm.

You may have inferred that but I did not see it implied at all.

I infer you did not comprehend my post as intended. The post you replied to when resurrecting that old thread was referring to a news article published at the time of the arrests. There were more articles published after that. The locals who were beat up were charged with robbery. The cruise passengers were fined for an excessive response to the robbery.
