John McAfee donates to San Pedro police

Millionaire businessman John McAfee’s Orange Walk estate was raided by GSU personnel in early May during an operation in which it was believed that drugs and illegal firearms were being housed on the premises.  In the wake of the search, McAfee and the Belize Police Department became embroiled in a highly publicized tiff which eventually ended up in the international media.  Despite the widely reported fallout, the antivirus software guru has a long history of donating much needed equipment to the police department and today the hatchet was formally buried when McAfee handed over a handsome donation of items to the San Pedro Police Formation.  Included among the equipment are forty Vipertek stun guns, twelve professional batons, a cache of pepper spray, heavy-duty metal handcuffs, flashlights, metal detectors, hydration backpacks, as well as a small vessel with an outboard engine.  The generous contribution comes in light of an increase in criminal activity on the island, a concern which has raised the ire of the local business community.  The donation coincides with another initiative by the Belize Tourism Board, which provided twelve Motorola handheld radios to the department.  In an effort to address the escalating situation additional officers will be deployed to San Pedro and a total of ten surveillance cameras will also be installed in strategic areas of the island.

    Thanks to Mr. McAfee. My opinion, based only on what I read and heard in the news, is that he was badly treated earlier. Some immigrants would not have been so forgiving, but I have the hunch he likes it here in the Jewel.

    I hope the police will keep good inventory control of this new equipment and use it properly and for a long time. Ambergris definitely needs more and better law enforcement!

    We laud McAfee generous efforts but it is an insult to all Belizeans that the government cannot perform its duties, functions , and responsibilities with all the taxes it collects. It appears that Barrow and his government believe that governing is to purloin taxes and to drive around in a/c SUVs and sit in a/c offices.

    And they the police were harassing this man for nothing well I hope unu appreciate what this man is doing for Belize he is doing more than the pm who only spends his time spending the money of the hard working po belizeans traveling around the world while belizeans keep getting murdered in the streets women children no matter who.every aspect of life in the drain and he spends 212 days out of the country in one year deduct that from 365 and that tells you how much time this pm spends in this country so if you are wondering why their has been over 125 murders in one year and every aspect of life in the drain this is why . Guan judas barrow guan resign you are a total and complete failure at your job.

    Mr. McAfee can donate a million dollars if he want. And if he dah criminal, he dah criminal and if Police or GSU want search the man, be our guest. We no descriminate criminals dah Belize, at least I hope not.

  7. Young Gial says:

    Nice one BZN, maybe instead of donating things, he should hand over the ammunitions and drugs he is hiding in Belize. How about that one Mr. McAfee? Keep your tainted money, eh. Rod stupid, stop di tek puss ina bag, hahaha.

  8. kickass says:

    i suggest start an espionage and investigation unit to track down criminals and get rid of them once and for all….this country is being run by criminals…not by politicians….politicians run the money and gangsters run the guns. so whichever way you put it we are still being screwed from both sides…..regulate gun policies and protect the business communities…

    Young Gial: What drugs and ammo? Maybe you are not aware that I made my money through software development and created one of the largest sfotware companies in the world. I don’t know how much money people make from drugs, but I am sure it is not a fraction of what I made, and continue to make, through software. Why would I bother with drugs? If I wanted more money I would write more software. Easier, cheaper, quicker and makes 100 times as much money.

  10. hi5 says:

    @ macafee dont explain ur self to no one. Take ur money and run far from belize. Belizeans are hateful. At young gal what have you contribute to society? Others than your negative vibes…… Thank you Mr. MACAFEE!

  12. Southern says:

    Get your evidence and facts straight before starting dishing out accusations. These police equipment can be put to good use against criminals adding to the bleak inventory the police have.

  13. Disown mi country says:

    Mr.McAfee,I’m with Hi5. If I were you, I would definitely get out of Belize while you are alive. Too many ingrates.

  14. Belizesoul says:

  15. The Doc says:

    HMMMMM, All you McAfee Lovers….. What don’t you see???? You will find out soon. The truth about this man will come out now….John McAfee, Did you not tell a US court you lost all but 4 million dollars??? Don’t you have some bills you need to pay in the US??? Stop ur b s John. We know better. You can try to lie, but that $#!% is catching up to you…. Best of Luck.. and then you try to make Belizeans sound like they are all after you, like on your latest Gizmodo bs… And you got some Belizeans, like Rod, fooled to the point that we just laugh….
