George Street Gang will fight Government in Court; not with grenades

The gangs are not known to issue statements; in fact they are known not to want to appear on camera. So we found a release they purportedly sent out today to be unusual. It comes in the aftermath of a violent shakedown by the Gang Suppression Unit against alleged members of the George Street Gang last Friday, during which a number of persons were severely injured. Government’s response was to justify the GSU highhandedness, saying that they had intelligence that the gangs had grenades they intended to use during the celebrations. Late this afternoon a statement was delivered to our newsroom from the four principal gangs of the Old Capital including George Street, Supal Street, Ghost Town and Gill Street. They say that they have no intentions of retaliating against the GSU or harming anyone. The statement continues to say that the gangs will instead pursue legal action in light of the inhumane treatment they received at the hands of the GSU.  The four gangs reaffirm that members will not disrupt the celebrations, since they have no knowledge of or possess any grenades as was alleged by government’s press release on Tuesday. Lastly and for good measure, the statement says that the gangs would like (quote) “for the GSU to try and come up with a way to help resolve the issues between the various areas, rather than fueling the problem.

    My brothers , the government has no intention of assisting Its ppl. They incite problems and watch as you each eliminate each other. The governmet is a corrupt group of ppl who are looking after their greed and that of their family. I pray that an end be put to all the crime and violence perpetuated against my ppl.

  5. Sugar says:

    gangs now putting out press release.!!!!! WTF.???…where is this world cumming to now?? Dean Barrow, this is a sign that you have lost it ALL my bald friend.

  6. Ms. School Teacher says:

    Ha Ha, who will believe the criminals. Make your own decisions belizeans!

  7. Orl says:

    When they claim “peace and tranquility” then sudden destruction is on its way. Lets be careful with these gang members.

  8. Chance says:

    Yeah Right!!….These punks are just being proactive. They know the police will lock them down for the Celebrations and that is what they are attempting to prevent. They should just leave Belize altogether and take a big swim in the deep blue sea and disappear.

  9. concern citizen says:

    People of Belize, lets be calm and have the guys (lawyers, judges and executioners) of the streets do their jobs. Kill each other. Its the only justice there is, Mr Barrow is not bothered with whats happening in the streets he is more interested in nationalization for his family, he has his eyes on the money $$$$$$$$ . Cant u all see whats his priorities are: btl, wasa, bel.. thats where he will benefit…..I hate to say this but the next lead should be for him in his @$$ so he get up and listen to the people and do the rite thing. amend the laws/contitution to protect the society and not for his personal gain……he must go. barrow is not someone to put this country forward. we need GOD. he is the only one to get this country moving in the rite direction….pray and will happen….jah bless

  10. Eyes on Belize says:

    Big news this morning, You guys kill people because of court. Now them fraid of Police and going to deal inna court business. That how it should be, the gangsters afraid of Police. Am very pround of the G.S.U, know they need to snipe some of the known killers and shot callers.Belize will be a better place without them. We need Sargent Adams from Jamaica, who know about dealing with the so called hardest street thugs. Come on people open your Eyes and give Police break to clean up the place.

  11. Get it right says:

    Are you serious? A press release from criminals like they are a formal legitimate group in Belize. I would love to hear who are the lawyers that will be supporting these thugs. Only in Belize these kinda things are allowed to happen. Ridiculous. The media houses shouldnt even entertain these parasites, letting them feel like they have power. These gangs’ power is derived from fear. Without fear they are powerless. GOB needs to continue show them that they don’t fear them.

  12. belizeanpride says:

    WE’RE HEADING THE SAME PATH LIKE MEXICO NARCO GROUPS WHERE THEY SEND VIA VIDEOS ON BLOGDELNARCO PRESS RELEASE AND NEGOCIATE BEFORE THEY ACT BRUTALLY. DAMN!! ARE COPYING THE SAME STYLE NOW.

  15. Nutral grounds says:

    I am very surprise of a press realease from gangs. And what i am most upset about is that people in belize are feeling sorry for these gangs, wtf. Are we damm serious, do we forget the years of murders that were organized by theses same people, how many mothers cried for thier lost sons, the amount of drugs and guns that were given to our youths by those same gang leaders that were shown on the news.In jamacia the police just shot them dead they are no use to society.

  16. john says:

    you people have no moral! so what if they are from a gang? most of them are hard working people that are trying to make a living and supporting there family, and make your life as belizeans easier with out den cleaning the street or paving the roads you all would be in more misery! and for you people supporting the GSU i would love for them to raid your house or treat one of ur family members the way they are treating people in the streets see if you will be talking like if they are great they are just out causing more trouble to the country !

  17. cg says:

    this just give the LOLs….

  18. BZNinCALI says:

    Thank you Get it right, the first thing I thought was that the statement was written by an attorney. Had they tried communicating in a civil manner & thought about the destruction the drugs & drug money would bring to their community, the GSU would not be all up their behinds & making them crap their pants. I want to see a debate with these articulate souls on TV without masks, standing up like men & women, giving us viable solutions or at minimum workable suggestions that will bring an end to the violence.

  21. glenda says:

    AMEN.
    WE ARE GOVERNED BY TWO GANGS

  22. The Man says:

    You don not negotiate with terrorists! You search them out, hunt them down and eliminate them.
    Has the GOB really become impotent? Is this a sign of recognition to the gangs? Is not there a law on the books that gangs and membership thereof is illegal? Come on; we cannot be serious. Another law not being enforced. You know why crime is so rampant? We have created a culture of disrespect for law and authority, a culture rooted in indiscipline. These guys do what they do because they know they will get away unpunished. Let’s wake up!

  23. CONCERNED says:

    I Agree with most of the comments stated. The Govt has FINALLY heard the cries of the community in trying to rid Belize city of these Gangs. However, according to the LAW, an individaul is INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty. I am sure the people of this country knows that the men of these said gangs have robbed, killed, threatened, raped and abused victims/innocent ppl. However, can it be proven? It wasnt until gun shots were fired at the Dean St Police stattion that action was taken against the gang members of George street. It is sad/unfortunate that Chidren and Women were involed in the flogging that was given to them by the GSU. While i am all for ridding this city of violence, the GSU went about doing it the wrong way in my eyes…. YOU DO NOT FIGHT FIRE WID FIRE…. Jus like the gangs who hurt innocent ppl.. the GSU hurt innocent ppl in the process. So, if you are in favor of what the GSU did, then might as well be in favor of what these GANGS are doing.

    The man which will use his skill and constructive imagination to determine simply how much they can give for the dollar, as opposed to how little the guy can give for the dollar, will succeed.
