Caines and Bean remove graffiti from wall
Anti-gang leaders Wayne Caines and Pastor Leroy Bean rolled up their sleeves to remove graffiti from a wall in Pembroke.
Mr Caines, the Minister of National Security, and Mr Bean, the gang violence co-ordinator, took action against the gang-related graffiti in the area of North Terrace yesterday.
They were helped by Progressive Labour Party MP Michael Weeks and PLP stalwart Shirlene Bascome, while Rowe Spurling Paint Company donated the paint.
Mr Caines said: “The neighbours were very upset. We could not stand by and allow the graffiti to stand over the Christmas holiday, so we borrowed clothes from a neighbour and painted the wall.
“I ask the persons responsible and remind all of Bermuda to participate in positive activities and work together to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday for all.”
Mr Caines said the Police Community Action Team would attend the neighbourhood yesterday.
