DJ Motion says cops allowed beating in station

Kevin “DJ Motion” Lara

Twenty-seven year old Kevin Lara, a radio Disc Jockey who is known by the nickname DJ Motion, was charged along with three others for burglary and handling stolen goods that were from the house of Kevin Morris and the business of Leon Fulgham. The incident allegedly happened on November ninth, and the disc jockey and associates were charged on November eighteenth. DJ Motion came to our studios today to say he is innocent and to suggest mistreatment by the arresting officers. He confessed that he bought a radio from less than trustworthy sources but he is no burglar. Not only does he want the burglary charged scratched from his record, he also wants to sue the officers who allowed a detained individual to punch him in the face.

Kevin “DJ Motion” Lara, Wants Burglary Charge Scratched from Record

“They found a radio, which they basically told me I had a radio at my house. So I said yes I do have a radio at my house. So they said well we woulda wah you take us to your house for the radio. So I took them to the house for the radio and so forth. When they reached at my house they did in fact find a radio that I had bought from somebody. When we reached back to the cell, they took me back upstairs and they started to read out all kind of missing stuff that were missing from a place behind honeybees. So they read all that stuff. So I said I don’t know nothing about those stuff. I have a radio right here and you could check everything in the office weh you have and check my fingerprint and I will show you that you don’t have my fingerprint. And the man said we don’t want to hear nothing bout no fingerprint, we just want to know where all these stuff is—which was Jemott and wah tall one and a short one. But all of them said, bwai motion you di lie, you know all of them stuff here. You are lying. And I said I no know.  Jemott came inside with a next guy they brought up from the cell now. They neva handcuff the next dude. The bwai get up and ih start punch me up. So I get the bust lip.”

    Firstly, the police should never have allowed the other guys to punched DJ Motion. This is wrong, and the officers should be dealt with. They may have a case in arguing that they did not know the guys was going to do what he did. If that is the argument then he should be charged as the incident, according to Motion, happened in the presence of officers.

    My main bone on contention is with his statement of wanting to his record cleared from the burglary. He may not have been the one who broke into the place; however, he admitted on National TV at he got the property questionable source. Now, tell that to the person who loss the property, and who may feel personally violated as a result of the burglary. This kind of action goes to the root of the crime. If these guys don’t have persons who would accept to buy the items cheap, they would be caught with the items and would be in jail. However because of people like Motion, who seem to think that it is okay to have stolen property as long as your are not the who stole it, is the problem.

    The authorities MUST start to deal with persons handling property , to the full extent of the law. Growing up in Belize I often heard ” the handler is a bad as the thief”. Motion should contemplate on this for a while.

    I belief you should recognise a thief and don’t buy anything from him. thieves sell things very
    cheap y? because they did not spend anything on it. so be carefull from whom you buy things.
