He slapped her, but denies hitting her with a rake

Glenford Brown

A Jane Usher Boulevard resident was convicted this for harming a teenager. He is thirty year old Glenford Brown, who was accused of hitting nineteen year old Tanisha Bodden with a rake on August second. After being found guilty, the Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith remanded Brown to prison until December twenty-fourth, when he will be sentenced.  In her testimony, Bodden told the court that when she was working with Restore Belize at a job site in the city, she asked Brown for a rake since he was the Supervisor. Instead, Brown hit her, causing injuries to her hip, eye and wrist. In his defense, Brown who was unrepresented, told the court that Bodden had provoked him and insulted his mother. Brown admitted to hitting her but said it wasn’t with a rake; he only slapped her.

    This story doesn’t sound right…she went and ask for a rake & he just hit her???? I’m sure this guy isn’t crazy or just buck ih head that day. Some sort of “hard talks” happen between them or some kind of provocation…where is the rest of the story????

  4. Bear says:

    Stupid reaction to escalate an insult to going to jail.

    “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

    He was the supervisor, too, so presumably he had the authority to discipline her or just make her life miserable.

    A man should never hit a woman. Dont matter what kind of woman she is. (remember you came out of a woman). Call the police and let them deal with her. If you could get them only with insulting words imagine if she hit you?.

  6. billgate says:

    Yeah we men came from a woman but remember you women were made from our parts so give respect and you’ll get respect in return there is something else to the story and with all the woman right there is no chance for us men anymore
