Family of 2 women says they were brutalized by cops

There’s a disturbing report coming from the Corozal District that two women were badly beaten by the cops. According to a relative of the victims, Maity Garcia and Yorhemi Monima, got into an argument near the Police Station and the cops intervened. But instead of breaking up the confrontation, the officers allegedly attacked the women. Garcia was reportedly slammed on the ground and she had to be taken to the Northern Regional Hospital in Orange Walk for medical treatment. She received an ultrasound because Corozal doctors suspected that she may have internal bleeding and may have also sustained injuries to her liver. Meanwhile, Monima was briefly detained and claims that she too was beaten at the station. Since her release, she has also been hospitalized. According to the niece who called in the report to our newsroom, when family members asked the officers why the women were beaten, they were insulted and told to mind their own business. We could not get a comment from the police on the claim due to the lateness of the report.

    You are one sick person, maybe the police will beat you for being an idiot and stupid. lol
    These type of things should not be done by the police and apparently you seem to know who the woman are, someone should give you an education, or are you a closet homo?
