    I hope DPP added attempted murder to the robbery charge. We’ll all be better off if this man is never free again.

    Lets take a good look at this guy, he is 21 years old, no disability of any kind and with a gun? Why the hell the Belizean people tolerate this? He is a menace to society! the customer made one crucial mistake and that was to shoot him in his legs. He should have put two between the eyes. Once a thief always a thief and he will do whatever to get away and that might include murder.

  3. Orlando says:

    This kid is a menace to society at age 21. Is he mentally challenge or any disability of any kind? if not he need a severe flagging, and I am talking about a good old fashion a.. whipping before he goes to jail.

    rookie and ugly beggar of his life-how pathetic. Take it like a man. I was there and saw him shit his pants and cry like a baby. Why didn’t patron take him out if his miserable existence?

    Should have shot him in the head.

    Belize doesn’t need trash like this running around, or behind bars where our tax money feeds them.

  6. Storm says:

    Aaagh! I reversed what I meant, I hope they remembered to file the robbery/attempted robbery charge to the attempted murder and firearms charges. Senility might be setting in.
