Did G.S.U.’s Behaviour Contribute to Situation?

In Belize City, attorney Richard “Dickie” Bradley, who is defending Cameron Usher Senior and considers him a close friend, says the bigger tragedy than the discovery and burning of the marijuana plantation is how the Gang Suppression Unit handled the matter. Family members of Cameron and Kelvin Usher say G.S.U. officers fired shots as they approached the farm near the plantation. He adds that precious time was lost when police tried to insist on the last person seeing Kelvin alive make the missing person report instead of his mother. Bradley hopes that searchers in Lucky Strike can overcome those strokes of bad luck to find the younger Usher alive and well.

“Those who were with the party – there were a group of people going about their lawful business when the G.S.U. arrived, and according to what family members are saying, they fired a number of shots. It doesn’t make sense and I said to you just now that the law is grounded in common sense. If people are supposedly near a weed field or in a weed field, you don’t shoot warning shots – you want them to run and get away? That makes no sense. The family members said they were shooting at them. A young man is now missing, and we pray to Almighty God that he has not been shot, or that he is alive and will emerge safe – that is the main concern. The charges against Cameron will play out in court, but we have a bigger tragedy, because we see in the media that the mother tried to make a report that her son is missing, and is alleged to have been told some foolishness that ‘you can’t make the report, the last one who was with him has to make the report.’ You can say we will take the report from you – seeing there was somebody seen with him on the last occasion, please have that person come in as well, to help us get a description or an idea of where they were when they were last seen. But how will tell you the mother of a pikni that she can’t report that ih pikni missing?”
