There must be more to the story.

Seems like there has to be. This article in Bernews has slightly more information. Like that it took place at 3:00 am.

Don't know what there is for cruise passengers to be doing at 3:00 am at the Dockyard but in any case given the recent increases in gang activity and crime in Bermuda reported in Bermuda's press I would advise against being out and about at that hour.

I just heard from another source that a third passenger was arrested. The locals were robbing them but it appears the passengers are being arrested for beating up the robbers bad enough to send the robbers to the hospital.

Warning. There is explicit language and violence in the video.

Ok watched the video. Though I believe in self defense this was extreme. They should have defended themselves to the point of being able to remove themselves from the situation and reported the incident to the proper authorities. This was too much. Further reports out there state that the tourists were arrested for assault. Which this video clearly shows evidence of. Sad for all those involved.

I agree with you. What they did was beyond self defense.

I do believe in self defense but I never would have gone to that extreme even when I was young enough to be able to. I would never beat anyone to death and from what I have read one of them is close to death. I think the video shows why the passengers were arrested.

Given the recent increase in crime and gang activity in Bermuda I advise people not to walk around the Dockyard at 3:00 am. There have been other recent incidents there. I read the Bermuda press. And I advise staying away the night club the snorkel park late at night.

WOW I was on this ship when this happened. This incident went down very quietly. Nobody on board would have known this happened. I can say Bermuda thugs was not prepared for a boat full of NYers!

My lord I'm glad my wife wouldn't act like that. No need to hold a man and than beat his face in, unless he molested their kid.

Once they had the attackers subdued they should of contacted police not beat the crap out of them. Bermuda can keep those passengers we don't need them back.

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.
