      Just looking at those tinted speeding Kia Souls should make you want to avoid them. You wonder if it is the vehicle itself that is possessed. It's weird.

    OK, there's a "high speed" chase, right?
    On a tiny island, right?
    What are the chances of a successful escape? Please incarcerat these nimble-brained persons as a safety measure to our society.
    Thank you.

      Proud of these comments. Don't make these criminals feel comfortable committing crime. They think everyone is against the police.

      Here is the relative of one of these fools commenting, or perhaps one of the fools themselves. Oh well, "they are good boys".

      Nobody to call out their family members or themselves when they do asshishness. This is why we are where we at as a community. Is so some of these ignorant parents defend their children at school when they are dead wrong.

      It happened for the best
      In my opinion the robbery happened with no fatalities
      Imagine a shootout there innocent persons could’ve gotten in the crossfire
      The stores next door could’ve gotten struck
      Vehicles passing etc etc

      It’s unfortunate what happened in my humble opinion but no lives was lost and we should be grateful cause it could’ve been worst those girls also could’ve been used as body shield/hostages

      The police should’ve blocked the roads with the pickups and hide ?
      Forcing them to abandon and run they is where they should be in place to corner them

    I appreciate the police presence on road in trying to combat criminal activities. However, some of the police lack the basic knowledge of courtesy. They exhibit too much force on the citizens. From my personal experience when I was stopped by the police some time ago by four officers. As they exited their vehicle and came to my vehicle with their guns drawn and pointed in my direction. Another, concern is their tone of voice. That is not the correct approach and I would appreciate some training for some of the officers.

    All this talk about searching indiscriminately is rubbish. If they are in a high speed chase that is likely enough to get a warrant.

    As far as searching any and everyone. NO. The law has yet to align with society. We have laws against homozexuality and cannabis of which untold numbers partake. Im all for cleaning the place up just stop criminalizing the people who are doing nothing to harm others.

    Destroy community trust & respect with insane policy and then ask for more powers without healing the community trust. Homozexuals get a free pass the last 20 years because the UK is pushing global LGBTQ+. Some people are against police because police has a history of locking people up for nonsense.

    Until we get our laws in line with how people really live then indiscriminate searching is taking us decades back in time because we will put more normal folk including college attendees through court and jail than actual thieves, and murderers.

    Furthermore if KFC headquaters were on island and indiscriminately searched with additional powers how fast do you think the SECRET recipe which has nothing to do with crime will be out on everyone's phone?

    Do we consider how the rest of the business community & investors feel including internationals? Think people we cant turn everyone's pockets out every year.
