Police Commissioner says ‘Cross di Nitro’ is Wanted

Allen Whylie

As we told you, the viral stream has caught the attention of Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie, who says that the department will actively pursue Cross Di Nitro and levy criminal charges against him for making those threats.  ComPol Whylie also denied allegations that a state-sanctioned hit has been placed on Kenneth ‘Big Tom’ Flowers.

 

Allen Whylie, Commissioner of Police

“The video and the contents are very alarming and concerning to me because it makes threats, not only against police officers and their families and children but it also makes threats against the ordinary citizens of Belize.  Those threats, the police will not continue to be taking lightly.  I can tell you that that young man will be located, he will be detained.  We will be looking at all available laws with a view to see where we can possibly criminally charge him.  We cannot have persons using social media to incite violence and incite fear to citizens across this nation.  We cannot have people using social media because they may be annoyed or aggrieved to be issuing threats against law enforcement officers and their families.  The police have a statutory obligation to enforce the laws of this country and they will continue to do so fearlessly.  They will continue to be in the face of criminal elements, complaints will be made.  Each complaint that are made I can ensure you will be investigated by the Professional Standards Branch.”

“Now sir was there, in your opinion, the young man based his entire thing that reportedly an officer—an officer who is known in the streets as someone who has many confrontational and intimidating conversations with gang members and was charged for extortion several years ago. I am saying that this entire provocation is supposedly based on what a police officer told a young man about the person he calls his general. Will that also be looked into if in fact this officer, who is known in the streets, made such remarks that X person will be killed?”

“I can tell you that in respect to that officer if he is charged with extortion is neither here nor there. I am certain if he had been, he had had his day in court and obviously he is back on the job so he may have been acquitted of the charge. So I think it is unfair to raise that issue. We do not have a perfect society; we don’t have a perfect police department because the police come from the very society out there. I cannot understand why a sensible police officer would say the things that this individual is claiming the police officer said.”

 

So as we said, police are out in numbers patrolling neighbors in the south side where potential trouble can erupt.
