Another Allegation of GSU Brutality on Jane Usher Boulevard

In this newscast, we have carried untold numbers of allegations of brutality at the hands of the police. Tonight, residents of the Jane Usher Boulevard are alleging that they were beaten up for no reason by the Gang Suppression Unit.  The group of four including two minors and students of Gwen Lizarraga High School, an employee of Caye Caulker Water Taxi and another resident were accosted by the officers led by Commander of the GSU, Mark Flowers. The men were so badly beaten that they had to be taken to the K.H.M.H. for medical treatment. One of the victims who suffered from asthma told News Five about the ordeal.
