Dan noh we! GSU Commander proclaims innocence

Dean Barrow

There was one allegation that Prime Minister Dean Barrow went at pains to dispel; not once, but twice during his conference. Apparently, the George Street Gang and residents of the area believe that the murders may have been committed by the Gang Suppression Unit. After dispelling the rumor, the PM also called GSU commander Marco Vidal to the podium.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“The GSU had visited that premises earlier in the day, yesterday. The George Street people allege that the GSU had broken the lock on back door of the premises and they see that as proof positive that this was so that the GSU can come back in the dead of night and gain easy access to the premises. Mr. Dawson will tell you that when the police went on scene, they photographed the premises; they photographed the back door and that there is no question of that back door being forced open, there is no question of any padlock being broken off the back door. So I hope that this can help to persuade the George Street people that it really si a bridge absolutely too far to maintain this conviction that the GSU is responsible for these killings.”

“The allegation that is being made is unfortunate, it is baseless. The unit has a mandate to target gangs and through our intelligence we have been targeting these gangs in Belize City and our intelligence has proven to be effective in targeting these gangs. We find that the allegations made is totally unfounded, it is baseless. Any suggest that the Gang Suppression would be involved in such a heinous crime would be self defeating as it would destabilize the country and certainly that is not our mandate.”

 

During the police department’s new shuffle, Marco Vidal also assumes the role of the Commander of Special Branch.

    Marco, do you think the family of the george gang believes you?. Why bother then to answer them?. These gangs have declared war to the State. therefore, the State must respond appropiately. However, this gang-monstor is the creation of Mr. Barrow himself a gangster. That is what Barrow is a: GANGSTER.

    Lucas don’t be an ignorant person! Belize city is packed with gangsters especially the black people, mr barrow is making an effort along with the national securities, this is war between gangs! Gangs are killing gangs you need to analyze carefully, this is like a virus this is happening also in the central american countries like el salvador, honduras, guatemala. We cannot continue blaming the police or the govt. Think!

    The most useless pm in the history of his great nation.

  5. Torres says:

    Mr. Vidal is a man of integrity and unquestionable ethics. I know this man since he was a corporal in Corozal. I have seen him face many obstacles in his career and he has always chosen the right direction to overvcome them. To suggest that he is invlolved in an unfounded allegation as such, is simply preposterous!
    What needs to be done is to let the evidence come into light and let the police do their investigation.

  6. RG Belizean says:

    I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT GSU DID THIS!!! Belizeans need to let GSU do their job…Most of the time when GSU does a raid they find something may it be drugs or guns they always find something!!! Continue to clean up the city and get our Belize back to the way it use to Be!!!

    all I want to say to all gangs in the city not only george street. if you all continue killing innocent people or target any police officer, the same MO will fallow do doubt about it. digest it ok.

  8. Bountyhunter says:

    gerald underwood. You are an example of house ignorant and racial Belizeans can be. No need to be calling the man Spanish. He has a name and is a mestizo man. It is very clear that some Belize City colored people suffer from Xenophobia due to the fact that hispanics are living along them and working hard for their living. Stop watching racial lines and work together, not divide.

    People need to stop pointing fingers as it is not an easy job for law enforcement. Laws need to be past that will give the Arm forces and the Police department power to guaranteeing crime infested zone.
    “Like every gang, I believe it was an internal affair.”
    The George street Gang is a criminal terrorist operation and a threat to democracy.
    No Government in the best interest of there citizens should lobby with any group involved in crimes against democracy.
    I am sure that GOB nor GSU had anything to do with this inhuman act.

    What GOB needs to do is to target the gangs and take them of the streets and try to rehabilitate the members, If that dose not work, use the full hand of the law.

    I want to challenge the Embassy of Belize, to ask fellow Belizeans in this Great Country The USA
    to finance protective gear to our Law enforcement back home “Belize”.
    Lets take back the Jewel before it is too late.

    We all love Belize and some day, we will go back, but to a peaceful home.
