Elderly American woman victim of Home Invasion

An elderly American businesswoman from the West is the most recent victim of a brutal home invasion. According to sixty year old Nancy Skiles, she was at her house in the Trench Town Area of San Ignacio sometime around eight o’clock on Wednesday night when three men dressed in black, reportedly armed with machetes, accosted her.  One of the robbers grabbed Skiles by the neck and said “Do not say anything or you will be killed.” She was then ordered to lie on the floor where the men proceeded to tie her up. Skiles was asked if she had a laptop computer and when she said no, she was punched in the face. The three robbers proceeded to search the home and escaped with her purse containing two thousand five hundred dollars. Police are investigating.

    Our very own Wild West! The States tamed its wild west with vigilante justice, groups of concerned citizens who joined together to defeat the criminals when the government was too weak or otherwise unable or unwilling to do it. It’s an example we should consider adopting.

    So what the hell is keeping Belizeans from doing it..The answer is very clear. Its not Belizeans being attacked in their homes… It “GRINGOS” those who hire and employ the Belizean people. What U gonna do when they say screw this place an leave… where does the rice and beans money come from then, where does the tourists dollars go then? When does this stop?

    Perhaps its time that “ALL” of the people in Belize say “Enough” and put an end to this kind of activity. It should be apparent by now that the Government of Belize is incapable of stopping this, and apparently completely incompetent. The police force is corrupted by the politicians who only have “THEIR” best interests at heart. So who stops these criminals.. ANSWER the Belizean people. Lets get on with it before we are all victims.

    YOU ARE ALL CORRECT. UNTIL THIS COUNTRY IS CLEANED UP, WE ARE OUT OF HERE. UNFORTUNATELY WE WILL NOT BE EMPLOYING 8-10 BELIZEANS AT OUR BUSINESS. WE LOVE THE COUNTRY, CULTURE, CUSTOMS, AND MOSTLY THE GOOD PEOPLE. SORRY, BUT WE DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THE OUT-OF-CONTROL CRIME. GOOD LUCK TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF BELIZE.
