Mayhem at nightclub; 4 injured and 2 dead

Dwight Panton

The Old Capital is bloodied by spiraling murder statistics.  The violence from gangs isn’t slowing down and on Friday night alone, following a fight at a bar, two men were mortally wounded. Four others were injured in the shooting spree. Members of the Supal Street Gang opened fire on the George Street Gang giving way to one of the bloodiest shooting incidents. Partygoers along the stretch of Newtown Barracks near the B.T.L. Park were calling it a night when shots rang out in front of the Elements Pool and Bar. Thirty-eight year old Dwight Panton was killed instantly while twenty-three year old Kenroy Humes succumbed to gunshot wounds while undergoing surgery at the K.H.M.H. Humes, who is also known as Beelie, was charged in the 2006 murder of Gilbert Phillips and the 2009 murder of Randy Coye at the Lord Ridge Cemetery. At a press conference this morning, the police said that the violence started in front of the bar.

    The roaches seem to be stomping on each other.

    But the killers still must be killed in turn, preferably by hanging. Hopefully our law enforcement heroes will be able to catch them or kill them in the process.

    Someone should organize a ‘Capital Punishment Voting Day’ whereby all registered voters in each constituency can come out and vote. It would operate the same way like General Election, City Council Election, etc. Just mark your ‘X’ as to YES or NO to capital punishment. If the outcome is no, then I would be very disappointed. But if the outcome is yes, then immediately the following day we’ll start to hang. Remember, the majority wins.

    God nuh like ugly. Beelie killed GiIlly and he killed Randy and he got killed – it took 6 long years – but he died the same way he killed people – BY THE GUN. Justice is SERVED!

    BMNJ, I agree with you, Belizeans nead to unite and call for the death penalty to come back. Once it is time for these cowards who are nothing without their gangs and a gun or some weapon to pay their dues, watch them pee in their pants when it comes their time to dangle. There is no penalty for murder in Belize, just get Dickie Bradley and get a go free card. I cannot watch his special without wanting to slap him through the TV. What will his answer be when he stands before Almighty to give account, I can hear him now, Lord my clients got what they paid me for “defense”, regardles of what they had done. When does it become an attorney’s responsibility to advise a client to plea for a lesser deal as oppose to just let murderers go free. I would rather see him make a plea and at least get them off the street for a time. Rise up my people, get mad as hell and let the government and the criminals you will not take it no more.

    123rd, so true, the Bible says you live by the sword you die by the sword. These gang members miss that part of the word of God. The Bible says that the very ground cry out for the blood of the murdered. Who are we to take what only God could give, a life. God’s wrth is worse than mans, so in the future watch for more of these scum bags to do away with each other. I pray that innocent people are spared from these violent fools.

  8. Sasha says:

    I hope that I’m mistaken but, I think he was deported sometime last yr, and as a person returning to Bz my first thought was I hope this fool behaves himself because he won’t be around long. Well, you pay for your sins sooner than later now. For the horrors caused I can’t sympathize with you, but hope gangs see the SENSELESS DEATH and think that it is better to be alive than dead. AL & BMNG yes there should be a vote for DEATH BY HANGING and someone needs to go see Dickie.

    Justice has been served for my uncle Gilbert Philips. I pray for this moment for years. My family and me are very happy.. what made him think that he was going to live long. This man took away my uncle and that hurt my heart I’ve been living with this pain all these years But now that justice has been served. My pop since is gone. Uncle Gilbert your family loves you. And the person who took you away is now gone and he will burn in hell

    I wonder if the cops aren’t just sitting back and hoping that they finish each other out. It’s the same names over and over again, if they are not killing and getting off the murder charge they are “victims” themselves. But I don’t see them as victims anymore but rather farmers as they are reaping the fruits from the seeds they have sowed. The unfortunate part of it all isn’t that they got what they deserved but rather it’s when the young and innocent are caught up in their madness. I say to the government why not speed up the process in a controlled environment? The police department knows all the players in this game of death hell we all do and Belize isn’t a big country, why not round them all up go down to the evidence locker take all the guns (even the ones that will at some point “vanish” only to be resold) that are slated to be destroyed let them pick their weapons and have at it. Hell you can even appease the nation and televise the event as we are desensitized enough to be able to handle all the blood and death. When the spectacle is over go out to the at risk neighborhoods and round up all the breeders of these murderers and give them a tie off thus ensuring that they do not give birth to anymore of these mistakes of mankind. But this is just a dream because why would the wholesaler kill his retailer; they are a necessary evil to the powers that be.

    What is a 40 millimeter Smith and Wesson pistol? That is a round that is over 1.5″ in diameter. There is no such kind of weapon, no wonder we can’t get convictions when we can’t even get basic statements right.. A 40mm is used from a grenade launcher.. Possibly it was meant to be 0.40 caliber. A lawyer will make a laughing stock of the prosecution with statements like that.
