P.U.P. Demands the Removal of GSU Boss

Francis Fonseca

The reaction from the P.U.P. was swift. The Leader of the Opposition Francis Fonseca reiterated the call for the disbandment of the Gang Suppression Unit, as well as the removal of Inspector Mark Flowers as head of the task force.  The response, according to Fonseca, was virtually political in tone and rather unbecoming of a public officer.

 

Francis Fonseca, P.U.P. Party Leader

“The Gang Suppression Unit, in its current incarnation, is not working.  It had lost the confidence of the Belizean people and therefore it’s no longer effective in carrying out its work and its mandate and needs to be replaced.  So he was reiterating that point and so as a party, to come back to the comments of the inspector, the head of the GSU, we condemn those comments.  I view those comments as being disrespectful, arrogant, distasteful, almost political in their tone, aimed at a former prime minister of Belize and a sitting member of parliament, the Right Honorable Said Musa.  So we in the People’s United Party do not take that lightly.  There was an effort, we believe, in those comments, to try to intimidate Mr. Musa, to intimidate the People’s United Party and to intimidate innocent citizens of our country and we will not stand for that.  We will not tolerate that.  So, as we stated in our release, we are demanding that Mr. Flowers, Inspector Flowers be removed as the head of the Gang Suppression Unit.  He does not enjoy the confidence of the opposition, he does not enjoy the confidence of the many people that we represent.  So we are demanding that the Minister of National Security and the Prime Minister act immediately to remove him from that position.”

 

We’ll have more on the P.U.P. press conference later in the newscast.

    Yes this man needs to go he is but another token of this pm and gov and has done nothing for the people of this country and for him to be insulting a former prime minister is just disgraceful and he needs to be removed every one in this gov. Believe that they can say do anything they want without consequences and this attitude starts from the top well I hope that all the gangs who he has harassed demoralized killed will turn their anger to this public officer .

    GSU boss your response was right on finally someone with some sense.

  3. Uncle Benji says:

    Francis you are Belize’s Barack Obama……… lame, weak and coward. Much talk, no action.

    If Mr. Musa (the real PUP leader) had not come down on the GSU, would you have had the guts to trash them?

    Don’t answer the questions. Turn off the lights on your way out; because your lights are on, but no one is home. Barack Fonseca.

    Now he wakes up and follows Musa. They never liked Vidal either-they want criminals to have free reign. Get hard on crime-not soft like everything else Musa and Fonseca. And by the way, why am I repeating that famous Duo name mUsa and fonseca for years now-what has changed in PUP-zero? and now cordel is back too-like old lovers.

  5. Kaila Moralez says:

    Mike let me answer why you are repeating the same famous names Hon. Said Musa and Hon. Francis Fonseca, because those two individuals represent PUP the party responsible for 90% of Building Belize. Even Button Wood Bay where dean barrow lives was built by PUP. Hon. Said Musa built a lot of communities in BELIZE, UDP has not built not one community to this present day. Hon. Said did more than fix streets because each community he built he had to put in streets from scratch, for example he built Hattiville Extention, Mountain View Extention, Cohune Walk, Police Housing Area, Mahogany Heights, Democracia, Max Boro, Los Lagos, Luma Luz Housing area to mention a few. So you see those two individuals represent the GreatParty responsible for building the entire Belize so their names will live on for infinity like Hon. George Price.Like it or not PUP brought about Independence of Belize or we all would not be able to celebrate Independence or even vote for our own government. I hope these facts help you to understand why these individuals names will live forever and ever in the minds of Grateful Belizeans. Because the true meaning of UDP and what it means to be UDP is Ungrateful Doggish People.

    It’s illegal to smoke weed. So, don’t! The issue of south side crime is a social as well as a police matter. The GSU has always struck me as being very gong-ho and a law on to themselves. The same can be same of Belize’s politicos. They are not and should not be immune to criticism. So, Said, grow some skin. U are not a God. As for the head of the GSU, it’s a given he is a UDP hack. However, common sense must transcend nonsense. We do need a professional force that can work with the community. But let’s not be naive. Many of these communities are the beneficiaries of crime: baby mothers, grandmothers, mothers and their criminal sons and men. So, Said, stop being a cheap opportunist to win votes. We have to govern still. I am a PUP and a proud George Price PUP. Belize can only survive as a nation of law and order. Otherwise, we are all doomed. I say flood the streets with a professional police force and a disciplined military. Implement the social programs needed to save who wants to be saved on the southside. Get rid of the rest, they are a cancer. Again, Said, don’t be a cheap whore. GSU needs to be transformed into something more professional. Needeless to say, the head of the GSU is a “political walking dead”. Sorry bro, you brought it onto yourself.

    One more thing. Musa will never and should never lead the PUP again. Francis stays. We have had enough of the bombastic, soapy mouth, big mouth leaders. Maybe we need a quiet steady hand. Let’s give it a try!
