Musa’s Fiery Remarks at Cordel’s Convention Angers GSU Boss

Said Musa

There has been no love between the People’s United Party and the Gang Suppression Unit and tonight those bad relations have reached rock bottom. Complaints of police brutality at the hands of the Gang Suppression Unit are commonplace.  In fact, since its formation in 2010, citizens have come on a frequent basis to vent their frustration with the GSU’s modus operandi.  The unit’s unorthodox approach to crime fighting reared its head again last week when a property on Kraal Road was raided by the elite task force, while residents of the community were reportedly physically and verbally abused by the officers.  On Saturday, during the People’s United Party’s endorsement convention for Lake Independence standard bearer Cordel Hyde, former prime minister and Fort George area representative Said Musa took the Barrow Administration and the Gang Suppression Unit to task.  Musa openly criticized the dubious manner in which the GSU carries out its mandate, particularly where it concerns the unit’s mode of operations.  Those rather pointed remarks were the views of the seasoned politician and two-time prime minister.  But on Monday, Inspector Mark Flowers, the recently appointed head of GSU, responded to the sharp criticism by excoriating Musa in an interview with another media house.  That inflammatory response has led to the People’s United Party asking for his removal from the post.  For context we begin with Musa’s remarks.

 

Said Musa, Area Representative, Fort George

“The GSU is out of control and if I have my way, if I have anything to do with it that is one of the first things the PUP will do.  Out  with the GSU!  Abolish the GSU!  Because that is no way to be treating people man!  We have ministers of government who are mollycoddling the criminals, the real criminals and then the innocent people are being repressed and oppressed by the GSU, no man!  In fact, the GSU going after little people, poor little black boy smoking one stick of weed, lock up people for one stick of weed, when they leave the big drug barons to do what they like.  That will have to stop my friends.”

  1. Ali BaBarrow, sez it all says:

    GSU another name for SA.

  2. Power Balls says:

    I agree with you Mr. Musa.

  3. Orl says:

    In his comments Musa said “poor little black boy smoking one stick of weed”. Thats racism Musa! I get the impression from his comments that only “black” people smoke weed. He cannot be a leader with those kinds of remarks. He will definitely join with the GSU and continue to harm the “black” people

  4. Uncle Benji says:

    Musa is the man to replace Francis Fonseca, the coward. Musa is Belize’s next prime minister. Musa will save the PUP from disintegration…………… But Musa is wrong on this one.

    I agree with his “poor little black boy smoking one stick of weed” comment. That is right on target, but to disband the GSU? Musa is wrong.

    The GSU is the best thing Belize has ever seen. Let’s preserve the GSU. Don’t worry Musa, you will still get my vote and my money.

  5. Angel N says:

    I can see his point, but there’s a difference between gross malpractice and being obsolete. What we need is a transparent, properly supervised GSU, and police force, for that matter. Mr Musa is being sensationalistic.

  6. Belizean says:

    Does anyone think that the GSU randomly comes into a house, just for fun and beats up people? They do that because of a suspicion. And, I think, that not nearly all the people that say they are innocent are REALLY innocent. We have BRED this society to be what it is. Most of the mothers that cry wolf, that say WE’RE innocent, are not in reality innocent. They have failed, not just the mothers, but the fathers that are not there. I say, a cold, harsh society needs to be dealt with that way…Musa, please tell me, you wanna go out there on the street and simply run after the lee black bwai that smoke weed and beg dehn not to do it? You crazy? These boys have never learned to be broken. Nobody has ever drawn the line for them…if no line is drawn, crime will have no border!

  7. CEO says:

    There we go again lets just throw out and abolish it! How about reigning them in and train them to better do their jobs?

    I hope he was not saying that smoking weed is ok and that he was just comparing one crime with the other if so I can agree with him because weed has always been grown and consumed in Belize but senseless murders and serious crimes is just a thing of the recent past.

  8. Louisville, Ky. says:

    Interesting indeed! Said Musa wants to disband the GSU. He seems to have forgotten (not so long ago) when criminal elements drove by his home and shot up the place. That kind of lawless mentality and behavior is exactly why we need a paramilitary arm of the Police like the (GS) Unit.
    While I am not in complete agreement with all their approach to fighting crime, I would have to be a Criminal myself, to want to have the GSU disbanded.
    As bad as things are now, just imagine what life would be like in the Old Capital, without these Killers at least having the fear of getting an unexpected visit by the GSU.
    Careful what you asking for Said!!

  9. Dr. Perera says:

    Barrow has been working diligently to pave the way for his criminal activities. Crime has been institutionalized in Belize. We had the pleasure of seeing Barrow hugely overshadowed by the dead body of a plain and humble man… the truly great Father of the Nation, the giant Honorable George Cadle Price!!!! The father of the nation is a giant because he lovingly gave his life for all of us Belizeans. This is how he expressed his love for God. In contrast, Barrow, like a stellar black hole, has gorged himself on Belizean wealth. Barrow has fed his greed at the expense of Belizeans, leaving behind a trail of poverty, stunted children, death and a gamma of painful Belizean experiences. But, Mr. “honorable” Barrow, what use is having filled yourself with so much matter if you still feel tremendously empty inside? We must learn from the father of the nation. When we let our selfishness die and instead see God alive in others, then we are ready to pour out our love for God and find true wealth.

    Well you see the writing on the wall, Musa and this PUP just wont work.
