Taylor’s Alley Gang Leader, Arthur Young, killed in police custody

Arthur Young

There are still lingering questions over the killing of Arthur Young, who police believe murdered the other gang leader, Pinky Tillett on Friday night. Young evaded the long arms of the law for many years and more recently, he was attached to the Conscious Youth Development Programme. Young also surfaced as the leader of the Taylor’s Alley affiliates in the recent stand-off with the Gang Suppression Unit. Immediately, after Tillett was killed on Friday night, there was word that Young had pulled the trigger. Then on Saturday, it was reported that Young was to hand himself over to the police. That did not happen and by this morning, he was dead. But there are more questions than answers. News Five’s Andrea Polanco also has that story.

 

Andrea Polanco, Reporting

Arthur Young, the leader of Taylor’s Alley Gang was allegedly shot and killed in the pan of a police truck around mid-night on Sunday. According to police, Young resisted arrested and a scuffle ensued, whereby Young was fatally shot by a police officer.  Young was wanted in connection with the murders of thirty-one year old Shelton “Pinky” August, leader of George Street Gang and twenty-three year old Kamille Andrews. According to police, they received information that Young was hiding in this abandoned house in Vista Del Mar:

 

Fitzroy Yearwood

Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“We were looking for a suspect in connection with that double murder and it was confirmed that last night around 11:15, police received information of the suspect, one Arthur Young, the known leader of the Taylor’s Alley Gang, was hiding in a house in Vista Del Mar. the house appeared to be abandoned. Police entered the house; found Mister Young in one of the rooms. He made an attempt to escape. He was apprehended and whilst he was being escorted to the Eastern Division Station on Queen Street, on his way there, he made another attempt this time to disarm a police officer that was in the back of the pickup with him—the pan of the pickup. A struggle ensued, the firearm went off and Mister Young was fatally injured.”

 

The gas station where Tillett & Andrews were killed is fitted with surveillance cameras, and while police say they are using the images to help them serve the double murder, was Young positively identified in those images?

 

Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood

“We have viewed a surveillance video. The content of it I will not disclose at this time, but yes we have viewed it.”

 

But if Young was shot accidentally, the acting Commissioner was careful in offering no details of the accident:

 

David Henderson

David Henderson, Acting Commissioner of Police

“I must make it quite clear that matter is presently under investigation. I believe the police had sent out the details that is necessary and as soon as the investigation is concluded or any further details you will be fully briefed.”

 

Jules Vasquez, 7 News

“You understand that the concerns of many persons I’ve spoken to this morning are somewhat skeptical and they feel intuitively and this is an opinion that it may be a state sponsored execution. How would you respond to a criticism such as that?”

 

David Henderson

“I will not speculate, I will not jump to any conclusion. The matter is under investigation. As soon as it is through, we will know the true facts and you will get whatever detail you need to get.”

 

Jules Vasquez

“However sir, are you able to at least say if he was shot more than once or one time?”

 

David Henderson

“I have already made it quite clear that the matter is under investigation.”

 

Young has a long history of run-ins with the law, dating back to early 2000. Over the last ten years he was in and out of the courts on a number of charges from murder to the possession of unlicensed firearm. He was one of two men charged with the August 2002 shooting death of Jose Chavarria on West Canal. After he was fingered in that murder, Young fled Belize for the U.S. that same year. He was deported back to Belize in October 2006; was remanded for a brief period, released and subsequently went into hiding.  He was later acquitted of the murder on a nolle pros motion. A year later he was also named in the stabbing murder of Calvin Young in November of 2007; however, the case was thrown out in January 2010 after the key witness reportedly suffering temporary amnesia. But years later, Young would categorically state that kept away from ill-reputed groups:

 

Via Phone: Arthur Young, In Hiding [File: April 8th, 2010]

I changed my last name at that time because people might hear my name and get kinda nervous and I don’t like to go around saying my name because I don’t really do things in public you know. I try my best to stay far away from these and other groups of peoples. I’m not active in the streets of giving no young boys nothing in no kind of way. When I talk to the youths it’s gotta be positive. People know me in society, but the ones that don’t know me think that I’m into just evilness and that’s because they don’t know my whereabouts. I chose to live privately and secret just so I don’t get harassment. But every time the police force or whoever is behind this trying to bad mind me, I don’t know if it’s something personal which I never sent any threat to the police like that.”

 

In April of 2010, Young was named as a person of interest after police had raided a house in Vista Del Mar where they found drugs and a lathe machine with a sound suppressor or silencer for weapons. An associate of Young, Errol Haynes, was found in the home. Whilst, Young wasn’t present at the time of the search, documents belonging to him were discovered and he was wanted in connection with that incident. Whilst in hiding, Young had called News Five to say that he believed police wanted him dead:

 

Via Phone: Arthur Young, In Hiding [File: April 8th, 2010]

“I really fear for my life because they out to try and kill me. I even heard that couple weeks they had a meeting about me saying that wherever they find me, whatever, I know they got the job to do but they reach the point they are harassing me now. I really don’t know where to turn to because nobody is on my side. And the way I move, I don’t really go and tell this one and tell that one. But you know today I just sit down and say this is one of the best reason I need to bring it to the public also. For the truth, I didn’t do anything wrong for them to try give me a charge I didn’t know about.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“At this point they say you are a person of interest because you rented the house. Does that bring any comfort to you?”

 

Via Phone: Arthur Young

“Well what I heard is that my name is on the charge sheet. If I’m a person of interest because I’m renting the house then my name should not be on the charge sheet. They went to the house and I heard that they found my old driver’s license and my social card. So I’m saying maybe they are trying to put me there now because I heard couple weeks ago that whatever they can hold against me to send me to jail, do that.  I don’t know why these people are dealing with me like this.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“So you don’t know anything about the equipment used to make silencer for handguns or books on gun use and tactics?”

 

Via Phone: Arthur Young

“I don’t know nothing about that. I don’t know what they took out of the house. All I heard is that they went there and took Errol Haynes. I don’t know the details of nothing.  I’m not even there at the time when I heard that. I was somewhere far away from there.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“At this point you don’t intend to go to the police?”

 

Via Phone: Arthur Young

“I’m not, I’m in hiding because I fear my life with the police. So I’m in hiding, I already spoke to my attorney and got I some advice.”

 

However, Young went into hiding. In May of that year he was caught at the Chetumal Airport after he attempted to board a flight enroute to Mexico City with a fake passport. He later walked free from those charges. Reporting for News Five, I’m Andrea Polanco.

 

While police report that Young was being harbored at a house in the Vista Del Mar area, which is owned by Robert Mariano, News Five today received a call from Mariano who says he has nothing to do with it.  According to Mariano, he moved out months ago and now lives in the US.

    …WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT…WE CAN DO WHATEVER WE WANT!!!

  2. Rod says:

    I wonder how this case will go sounds very fishy if a man is handcuffed how can he do what they say he did mmmmmmmmmmmm o well one less to worry about but police should be investigated by a separate entity to verify cause of death.

  3. Islander says:

    Concerns of which persons Jules? Maybe the media and criminals because we the law abiding do not care about how gang leaders died, we are just glad they died.

    The media needs to choose sides weather they stand with the criminals and politicians that support them or they stand with the law abiding and the GSU.

    Good riddance on both accounts.

  4. Ben says:

    Plain and simple police execution. Check out Jules report on this story. Witnesses allege that Arthur was beaten before being handcuffed and place in the pan of the police pickup. Now how does a handcuffed man grab a gun without being easily overpowered is beyind me. And then if there was a scuffle why is it that the street outside vISTA dEL mAR SOAKED IN BLOOD? either the cops took off his handcuffs and took him out of the pickup and shot him. You cant tell me dat wa handcuffed man can jump out of the pickup and expect to run away with his hands cuffed. Bbaylon da murerer.

  5. now i see says:

    If the police kill him you guys better hide that hero dont let his name out just in case. I think some one else kill him while he was in police costudy one of the rivals and told the police to keep quiet. Now the real war begins mothers no make you kids visit the gial freind too late now is really dangerous. Good that he is dead no more tears from mothers that this @&& killed. I hope that he is in hell. Who is next?

  6. Belmopan says:

    Regardless of what you all say – Arthur Young was my cousin and i loved him.

    He was a father, a brother, an uncle, a cousin a leader and a friend!

  7. Dave R says:

    I think the media is trying to sensationalize this story…A gangster is dead!!! Our streets are a little safer now. In the words of Rt. Hon. Said Musa: Noh watch me, watch ur self. the point…start keeping belize safe by talking to your children. DOn’t help them hide a gun or drugs. Don’t blame the politician for your faults. We all have ourselves to blame in particular those who buy stolen goods, and families who help criminals.

  8. alley cat says:

    Extrajudicial killing? I call it brata-killing…

    Do a simple search of his name in the archives and you will see all the crimes he is associated with…

  9. concerned says:

    This is a state sponsored killing. Whether it is the gsu who did it or as the commentor above suggested that it was a rival gang they took him too. He was executed ruthlessly. Before ou say stupid comments think about what if it was you. Suppose you some day get into an altercation with one of the suppose to be law personnel anddd governement Tha would mean you can be picked u and executed and a bogu story will be given about ou. It is what it is because nothing ever happens in belize. No justice once it comes to the governmentWhy donteone wh asoney andcares get a samle f the oofod at vista del mar and test it to see who’s it is. more than likely it is arthur youngs blood and that will make the whole gsu’s story which is already unstable collapse. I am tired of the Government .

  10. 187 says:

    Killings by the government. we are tired of them and the gsu

  11. blackberry says:

    Congrats GOB you have taken this one down, now go target the other ninety nine. The way things have been going a security specialist can make some money in Belize lecturing both parents and children on how to react physically and mentally when confronted by terrorist.
    Mr Defense minister blaming the media shows your weakness and short comings please get your act together.

  12. Storm says:

    I won’t comment on the legal aspects — but Belize is safer today. It’s a moral victory.

  13. R.I.O.T says:

    LETS GET IT CLEAR THE POLICE EXECUTED MR. YOUNG AND BY EXTENSION IT WAS DONE BY THE GOVERNMENT OF BELIZE, WHICH INDICT THE PRIME MINISTER AND MINISTER OF POLICE AS THE SHOT CALLERS HERE.

    THIS REDUCE THEM TO BEING JUST LIKE THE COMMON CRIMINAL. IN MY OPINION WHEN THEY WOULD RESORT TO SUCH A VICIOUS ACT TO TRY AND CURB A SITUATION THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TOYING WITH FOR MONTHS AND CALLING GANG TRUCE.

    SAY WHAT YOU MAY BUT THIS TYPE OF ACTION FROM OUR POLICE AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SHOULD BE CALLED OUT AS INHUMANE AND UNACCEPTABLE…..WHERE DO WE GET OFF WITH TAKING LAW IN OUR OWN HANDS……….TAKING AWAY THE JURY FROM THE COURTS WAS NOT ENOUGH……..NOW WE ARE TAKING AWAY THE FACT THAT A PERSON DESERVE HIS OR HER DAY IN COURT. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS BELIZE, I HAVE NEVER PERSONALLY TALK TO ANY OF THE TWO GUYS BUT HAVE SEEN THEM AND READ ABOUT THEM BUT CERTAINLY IF THE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT WAS CONVINCE THAT THE KILLY WAS DONE BY MR. YOUNG TO THE POINT WHERE THE ORDER WAS GIVEN TO KILL HIM THEN THE SAME ORDER OF A FAIR AND JUST TRIAL SHOULD HAVE BEEN ORDER…..THE EXECUTION OF MR. YOUNG JUST COMPOUND THE PROBLEMS FOR OUR COUNTRY’S DEMOCRACY AND OUR CONFIDENCE IN OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM TO CONVICT THIS PEOPLE……IT BRINGS TO THE FORE FRONT THE INABILITY OF OUR GOVERNMENT TO TRULY FIND AND ANSWER…….THESE TOW YOUNG MEN ARE THE SAME TWO MEN THAT WAS PERSONALLY CALLED INTO A MEETING WITH THE PM AN WAS OFFER MORE MONEY TO HOLD THE TRUCE TOGETHER SOOOOOOOOOOOOO IN THIS CHESS GAME THEY ARE PLAYING MORE PEOPLE IS EXPECTED TO BE ELIMINATED AND EVERY BOY BECOMES FAIR GAME.

    FINALLY I CONDEMN THE EXECUTION OF MR. YOUNG MORE PEACE COULD HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISH WITH HIM BEING PROPERLY PROSECUTED. AND GIVEN THE DEATH SENTENCE AND THAT DEATH SENTENCE CARRIED OUT!!!!!!!! IN THE PROPER MANNER.

    SO PEOPLE LETS NOT BE EMOTIONAL AND LOOSE SITE!!! WE ARE A PEOPLE OF DIGNITY LETS NOT CELEBRATE THE WRONG THAT WAS DONE NOR CONDONE THE THE WRONG WAY IN ADDRESSING THESE WRONG.

  14. dignity says:

    Clearly this person has been taking the law for fool all this time. Good riddance to black dog. Lets hope they kill more of these no good gangsters off, so we can have a better Belize!

  15. MADDYVANDIJKDEREALISTO says:

    I know that you’re reading this means I’m preaching to the converted, the Anti- Arthur Young non-supporters.

    It was inevitable that Arthur Young
    Would meet his maker either by the hands of the police or by his rival street gangs.

    The police got him first and in defence of the murder is that Young resisted arrest and was shot and killed. That is as political an act as any protest can get.

    Tomorrow there will be a new Arthur Young, Pinky, etc on the streets again, and nothing will have changed on the streets of Belize..

    Good riddance.

    Hey Guys I totally agree with you both. No matter what crime you commit the Government has no right to execute you that is why we have laws in Belize, but the Government feels they are above the law. so what happens when they feel that one of us innocent citizen does them something wrong??????? Be careful Belizeans We are all human beings and have done something wrong in our lives No one is perfect. ONLY GOD HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE

  17. Elgin Martinez says:

    This guy was a menace to society “Hip,Hip”.I also hope that this incident has sent a message to the other so called gangsters that happy our is over and that they’re going to be eliminated should they continue with their criminal activities.

  18. joe says:

    finish them who cares. Call another gang meeeting and end it all there…

  19. rasman says:

    Whats the fuss about, this happens everyday in Belize city. Only different, uniform persons did it.

  20. Things says:

    What different from the “gunmen” is the Police Department and its officers, if it murders citizens of its country? In the “gang war” the Police Department remains the only unbias force capable of providing stability if fully supported by the Government, whoever forms it. When, however, the Police conducts extrajudicial killings, it becomes an unremovable stain that blurs the concept of right and wrong. The Police should remain upright and unquestioned in the fight against this “gang war” that is plauging the City. Killing off citizens is promoting vigilante justice and inevitably the innocent get caught up in such forms of “justice”. Regardless of who the persons is or what he/she is accused of doing, EVERYONE IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVED OR PLEADED GUILTY. We should all fear when this basic aspect of criminal justice is neglected.

  21. things says:

    What now, is the difference between the Police and gunman?

  22. BUMPY G says:

    THE GOVERNMENT NOT DOIN SHYT BUT MAKING IT WORSE…YOU KILL ONE AND THEY ONLY COME BACK BIGGER, STRONGER, AND MORE RUTHLESS!!!!! DI POLICE HARASS THEM BOYZ TOO MUCH THEY USED TO HARASS ME BACK IN THE DAYS SO JUST IMAGINE WHAT THEY DOING NOW..

  23. R.I.O.T says:

    BELIZE DON’T BE FOOL DO YOU EVER SEEN ANY SITUATION BANDAGE FIX LAST!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOO. AND NO MESSAGE HAS BEEN SENT WITH THE EXECUTION OF ARTHUR ITS JUST TELL OUR PEOPLE TO RESOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS ITS OK TO USE VIOLENCE!!!!! BELIZE I AM FEDUP TOOOOOOOOOO BUT THAT NOT THE PART WE WANT TO GO DOWN AND WE CERTAINLY DON’T WANT TO CONDONE A DEATH SQUAD IN OUR COUNTRY. LETS FIX THE LAWS AND THE JUDICIARY TO GET THESE GUYS OFF THE STREETS OR ELSE THE CYCLE WILL CONTINUE AND BECOME MORE VICIOUS.

    FROM AS FAR BACK AS 2005 THERE ARE 300 PERSONS REMANDED 150 PEOPLE IS ON REMAND FOR MURDER AS I TYPE, AND WE KNOW THAT 99.9% OF THEM WILL WALK. LETS TRAIN OUR POLICE TO PROCESS AND COLLECT EVIDENCE. DON’T APPLAUSE THEIR WRONG DOING.

    FINALLY, THIS SITUATION WILL MAKE THE GANGS TURN ON THE AUTHORITIES VERY SOON LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

    LETS FIX THE PROBLEM BELIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. eric says:

    I wonder what some of the citizens of Belize really want. When this human garbage was running around and shooting little kids sleeping in their beds they call on the government to hang him and people like him and now that this terrorist is dead they have a moral issue with it. It is understandable and not unfathomable to think that maybe the police can do the same to anyone at will and it has happened before many times over. But this human garbage wasn’t just anyone and he only took from society and had nothing but tears from countless mothers eyes to give back and the bottom line is that this mistake that should have been aborted before birth won’t be around anymore to continue doing the only thing he was good at and like storm said “Belize is safer today” and yes it is a moral victory. The police did what the judicial system could not do; they brought true justice to this human waste. Thank you very much to the officer who pulled the trigger and made karma catch up to this festering pustule and I hope that they have no compunction in doing the same to the rest of them. It is wrong to rejoice over the death of someone but the humanity was all gone out of this subhuman thing when he died and thus he had no more reason for being.

  25. blacksheep says:

    two wrongs dont make it right!! i in no way shape or form condone the lifestyle or the crimes commited by Young and neither do i agree with this form of justice the government has chosen in order to ‘take care’ of this person. how can u expect people to live by the law wen the example u are settin is tellin us do otherwise. dat man could have just as easily been imprisoned unlawfully for life. but wen u lowrate urself to commiting murder as the gangs do, u have lost the respect of not only the gangs in the so called gang truce but also the citizens of belize who are watchin dis situation deteriorate with each unwise decision the government makes.
    its such a depressing situation wen we know only worse deh fi com an our government is seemingly at a loss as to how to effectively deal wit di situation. SMH

  26. P3 says:

    DA GOOD!!! @Belmopan you forgot to mention “a Murderer”. People fail to realize that its against the law to create a gang. No one should be in a position to call themselves gang leader and get away with it. For all we know Police was the one that set up and had pinky killed, just to have a reason to seek this one to kill. End result, less disease in Belize. @blackwidow the law allows ppl like this to get away. Sometimes governments around the world have to do these things.

    Now, do people ever wonder where they get money to rent house in Vista Del Mar, and provide for their family? Ask their family members, the answer would be something along the lines of “Hustle”. Yeah, some hard-working person got robbed or home was broken into whilst at work.

    The police need to make more examples like this, this is a good deter.

  27. P3 says:

    the only upsetting thing is that the police should have gotten their story straight so their story did not have so many holes LOL

  28. R.I.O.T says:

    MY LAST COMMENT IN TRYING TO MAKE SOME SENSE OUT OF ALL THIS……….THIS GOVERNMENT HAVE ALWAYS USED VIOLENCE IN TRYING TO RESOLVE SOCIAL PROBLEMS….. REMEMBER THE CANE FORMERS STAND OFF…….WHAT HAPPENED????? A MAN WAS KILLED BY THE GUN OF THE POLICE, A FAMILY WAS LEFT TO SUFFER……BUT THE PROBLEM WAS NOT FIX………AND THE CORE SAMPLER WAS REMOVE…..WHICH ADD INSULT INSULT TO INJURY…..MY POINT IS THAT IF THEY WOULD HAVE DONE IT THE RIGHT WAY NO ONE WOULD HAVE HAD TO DIE………..VIOLENCE IS NEVER THE RIGHT WAY.

  29. BZNinCALI says:

    If laws were being obeyed & our justice system was working properly, we would not be locked up in our homes, sleeping on the floor behind burglar bars & whatever else we feel can protect us from stray bullets. In theory, the death penalty should be implemented after a conviction but convictions are few & far between. Let’s face reality, if the police or a band of mercenaries don’t take them out, the law abiding citizens will continue to live in fear. We can feign outrage but we saw this coming.

    No one is questioning the fact that this was someone’s relative, we all are. Where does his right to wreak havoc end & the community’s right to some semblance of peace begin?

  30. Retired CEO says:

    GOB appears helpless in the eye of the storm of murders and mayheim. From listenning to the now minister of defense it sounds like a game of name calling and blaming the media for their helpless sorry approach in curbing the situation in the jewel Unfortunately, and very sadly so based on some of the above comments some of our people appear and sound ignorant, weak and helpless just as the GOB which led us to this very sorry situation/condition. Lastly, I try to remain netural as I scrutinize the issues in the jewel, however it most certainly appears as if they decided to play judge, god and executioner as they maliciously and willfully executed Arthur Young while transporting him to the Eastern Division Police Headquarters. Perhaps, I am wrong about this, however it most certainly appears that way?

  31. Kill all the Gang members!!!!!!!!!!!!!! says:

    Its about time the Gov take a stand — if the police kill him good —– they have been holding law abiding citizens hostage for so long— we cannot let 1% of the population hold the other 99% hostage — kill them all if it comes to that —- we tired of the shooting and killing —get rid of all the gang members — Darn the ministers and police taking too long to kill them off!!!!!!!!!!!!

    oh and if any other young guys want to join the gangs again — dont wait till they become pAIN IN OUR A$$ — DEAL WITH THEM ONE TIME!!!!!!

  32. Educated Woman says:

    THIS IS A SAD TIME IN OUR COUNTRY. IT MAKES ME FEEL VERY UNSAFE LIVING AND WORKING IN BELIZE. I CALL ON OUR GOVERNMENT, THE PEOPLE, THE CHURCHES, THE MOTHERS, THE FATHERS…….PLAY YOUR PART. GET INVOLVED. IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD. THIS SYSTEM IS BEGGING FOR RESURRECTION. SINGLE MOTHERS, GRAN-MOTHERS AND FATHERS CAN’T DO IT ALONE. A CRY FOR EMPOWERMENT IN THE FORM OF EDUCATION, PROGRAMS AND JOBS. THIS IS A CAUSE FOR OUR FAILING SOCIETAL STRUCTURE.

    CERTAINLY WHAT TRANSPIRED ACCORDING TO THE MEDIA AND EYEWITNESS REPORTS SOUNDED MUCH LIKE INTENTIONAL MURDER BY THE COPS. ASHAMED ON OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT, HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO JUSTICE AND DEALT WITH BY THE LAW. IMPLEMENT CAPITAL PUNISHMENT …. THIS WILL SLOW DOWN THIS PROCESS AND BRING EACH PERSON TO RIGHTFUL JUSTICE.

    LET’S ALL PRAY FOR BELIZE

  33. R.I.O.T says:

    PEOPLE REMEMBER!!!!!!!!PEOPLE ARE NOT BORN CRIMINALS BELIZE ITS A ACQUIRED BEHAVIOR (OR LEARN) THERE IS NO JUSTICE NO VICTORY WHEN A PERSON IS LABEL AND KILL IN THIS MANNER.….. THE TRUTH UNFORTUNATELY IS THE PAST HAS A WAY TO COME BACK AND BITE YOU. ONE COMMENTER STATE AND I QUOTE “if the police or a band of mercenaries don’t take them out, the law abiding citizens will continue to live in fear”. IN THE PAST WE HAD POLICE WHO WAS GIVEN THE SAME MANDATE AND WHAT HAPPENED THEY THEMSELVES BECAME CRIMINALS……THE SUPER HERO AVENGER IS ONLY FOUND IN THE COMICS……IN REALITY IF YOU CONDONE CRIMINALS YOU INEVITABLY BREATH CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.

    ANOTHER COMMENTER STATED:” The police did what the judicial system could not do; they brought true justice to this human waste. Thank you very much to the officer who pulled the trigger.”

    WHY DON’T WE PRESSURE THE AUTHORITIES TO STRENGTHENED OUR LAWS AND JUDICIARY SO WE COULD RAISE OUR CONVICTION RATES. ALL OF US, MOST OF US JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON FOR THE DIFFERENT LAWS TO BE AMENDED FOR EVERYTHING ELSE AND NEVER ADVOCATE FOR RIGHT LAWS TO BE CHANGE AND AMENDED, I REFUSE TO GO INTO THE DETAILS OF THOSE LAWS BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THEM. SEE I LEARN LONG AGO THAT IF WE DON’T DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY WE WILL END UP SUFFERING MORE.

    AND PASSING AND POSTING TASTE LESS COMMENTS, LISTEN I TAKE PART IN THIS FORUM BECAUSE I FIND FOR THE MOST PART WE ALL HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTIVE AND WE LEARN FROM EACH OTHER……….U GUYS HAVE BEEN GREAT IN THE PAST LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY………

  34. reatph says:

    PEOPLE WAKEUP THERE IS A NEW BOSS IN TOWN AND HE IS NOT TAKING ANY PRISONERS. THERE WILL BE A LOT MORE GANG KILLINGS BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT THE OTHER ONE KILL THEIR LEADER. IT IS NOT SO. FOCUS ON THE NEW GUY THAT IS TAKING OVER EVERYTHING QUIETLY.

  35. Seletar says:

    Sadly, Belize has got itself into a crisis that normal law just cannot correct — violent crime is out of control, our police are not trained well enough, our witnesses live in fear so they “forget” or disappear [or are killed], our DPP is overworked and underqualified, and juries have no evidence, no confidence, and no commonsense.

    A century or so ago in the States there was the “Wild West,” probably not unlike Belize today. So good people formed bands called “Vigilance Commuittees,” or just vigilantes. The best and most honest citizens were in those committees.

    Everyone knew who the dangerous criminals were, and the vigilantes caught them and killed them, one by one.

    Then when the crisis was ended, the committees disbanded, and people built a new community in peace.

    It has worked before, and with the right leadership, it can work here and now.

    all the $#!% he does who give a $#!% who kill him it could have been a 2year old child for all i care. HIM NOT PULLING THE TRIGGER on other people made him good hell no. and thats were he is now in hell. now lets get the rest of these $#!%$ off our streets and their seeds so they can’t come and do the same silly stuff.

  40. Pelican says:

    THINGS – It is their job to clean up the city – we gave them that job.. Hanging ends their rampage. So does a bullet!! What’s the difference… Cheaper by the bullet…

  41. Calvin Neal says:

    The country is being overrun by criminals. Belize is in a state of civil war. The war on drugs is a real war, and millionare drug dealers pitch your sons and daughters against each other to profit off them. If the GOB ordered the execution then it was about time that the GOB did something about the ruthless killings of sometimes innocent bystanders, citizens and often times children. War is war, there will be causualties on both sides, but at the end of the day the GOB has a duty to it’s electorate. At 317k that the population stands now it is unthinkable that the country is being held bisiege by a few hundred lawless killers. Violence begat violence, when it was your children out there lying in the street bleeding, or dead in the drain from a stray bullet, you somehow wanted justice and maybe never got it. The good book says a life for a life, how many lives did these two guys have extinguish over the years. When have we become a society accepting of violence against our law abiding citizens. GOB, job well done, take our streets back and use this second term to take Belize back to what it use to be. The lawful citizens gave you a mandate, carry it out.

  42. Babaero says:

    All i can say another one down he taught he bad resist arrest grab for the gun got shot oh well. i would have shot him too . one less crime lord on the street . i know am happy one less guy to worry about shooting sensely in the streets. I think these gang banger don’t think that they can die, for every banger that pick up a gun another one fall its just a matter of time and i can’t see how these idiots don’t see that there life is number.

    You all hear alot of comments and msg going around and most of it is not true. I went to d morgue personally to see his body. arthur was shot in his mouth and body now u figure out d rest. It was an accident huh??? Hmmmmm i would want they convience me like everybody else to believe that. I don’t care what they say. The police man who did it have a lot of balls or I should say his wife or lady I sure dont wanna feel what they going throu if he can do something like that. What ever arthur did or did not do leave it up to God. I know d government had something to do with this. they have all d power, pinky was their favorite man from d street. Plus there are 33 percent of d people in this world that will love u no matter what u do. 33 % will hate u no matter what u do good or bad. An 33% who don’t care either way. Suite your self

    Well, sad to say I don’t believe that a struggle ensue, but plainly the cops off him. I believe like any person with common sense, will ask the question how can a man in handcuff fight for a gun, but then again he might be a super criminal, you know someone like James Bond, Jackie Chan lol. I have no problem with cleaning up the street of these criminals, but I am just saying the law stands for justice and if the law(cops) aren’t standing for justice and taking it upon themselves to be judge and executioner, then believe me people will be taking their own justice, and there will be no need for cops. It is illustrated that the chaos has began in our jewel. All we can do is pray for God continual guidance, grace and mercy upon us.

    We all know that the police killed Mr. Young….However, the government needs to weed out all the corrupted police but I guess they will never do that.. But I am sure that after Mr. Young’s death, more blood will be shed. Who are the they to take away someone’s life? You should never shoot a man in his back or when he is helpless and of course that is what they did. I am not trying to justify his actions..but the Police did wrong and I am sure that they will never be convicted. I am sure that many of his close friends or members already know the police who were all involved in his death and they will surely suffer the consequences of their actions.

    I just hope and pray that Belize will someday be the same peaceful Belize that I knew when I was younger.

    @ Bgroovy….. The man must have come out and threatened the police and their family because he was always being followed. Put yourself in his shoes. How would you have liked some corrupted policemen who are being paid under the table of course, apart from his GOB salary to killed you. Imagine….The same policemen who are to protect the people, are the ones doing the crimes. I have to admit the fact that there are some good policemen who are doing a good job, other want to do a good job but are intimidated or afraid and are the rest are just downright NO GOOD!!….but life is a circle and believe me…its just a matter of time….We don’t give life and we should not take away life..

    I just hope that the PM and the Minister of Police are doing things the right way…. and not taking sides for anyone involved….. because if they are not… then they too will suffer the consequences later. God help us all.
