Former Gang Leader Finds God and Family

Roger Anthony

o what has brought about this remarkable change in a man who has been linked to many acts of violence crime and even murder? Well as clichéd as it may seem, Anthony claims that God showed him the way…that, and family. Today, he told the media that he has no doubt that there will be repercussions, but he’s prepared to stay positive and give up the thug life for good.

 

Roger Anthony, Alleged Leader, Ghost-Town Crips

“I have a family, I have wife, I have children, I have sister brothers and it’s not right to be killing each other, we should be helping each other, show each other the right way, show each other God’s way.”

 

Reporter

“How concerned are you that there might be repercussions now from the same lifestyle that you are leaving?”

 

Roger Anthony

“Yea, well there is going to be that but I just have to live with it, I just have to work with it, I just have to pray to God that it don’t happen.”

 

Reporter

“Are you going to work with the Police Department now or getting some kind of protection from them?”

 

Roger Anthony

“No am not going to work with them, am not going to get protection from them. Nobody force me to do anything I am doing it by God, God let me do this, because this is the way we should do it.”

 

Reporter

“Sir you have been associated with Mayflower for many years now, how do you get away from that reputation and try to disassociate yourself with that element in your neighbourhood?”

 

Roger Anthony

“Well I just have to continue work and am going to work, the guys that want to work with me, we gonna work and do positive things.”

 

Reporter

“How do you walk away from all of this knowing that your neighbourhood has been accused  of many terrible things?”

 

Roger Anthony

“Yes but you can’t look at the past, we have to look at the future, I ain’t looking back at the past.”

 

Inspector Mark Flowers, Head, Gang Suppression Unit

Inspector Mark Flowers

“Certainly Roger being the first person means that there will be other and we are working on talking and discussing with other people and showing them why there is no point in this lifestyle. There is no benefit from it, there is nothing to be had from it, other than death, the fear of death and the threat of death.”

    He just signed his execution date. We all know that when you change your life from crime is when the enemy comes in to sweep you up. It’s great to hear that God changed his life but it cannot bring back the innocent lives that were taken when he was in his ignorance. God can heal a broken vessel and make it his but there’s no escape from his wrath. Whether or not you have a relationship with him or not. And again, why should we take his words seriously, when it’s clever words such as what he’s stating that has lured people to death. Frankly I don’t believe him. He’s trying to escape the punishment that the new gang laws are forcing.

    Yes Insp. Flowers but these people need something to hold on to. Life is also practical. Belize needs to take care of it’s people protect them, provide education, jobs and equal opportunities and see the crime rate go way down. Stop giving so many handouts GOB’s. Set the people on the right path.

    Don’t believe him! It’s all a show… Two months ago he lower his own family in his vehicle & killed him. When finished he dugged a hole & buried him. His family found his decomposed body two weeks after. I guess he’s ashamed now.
