Police investigate allegations of terrorism by Independence officers

The Police High Command is reacting swiftly to a report we aired in Wednesday’s newscast. It was an appalling story of what was not so much Police brutality but Police terrorism, and against a minor, a student from Belize City. Nineteen year old Adrian Daniels and a minor were picked up in Independence Saturday afternoon, locked down until Monday then allegedly driven to a deserted feeder road. The minor was reportedly shocked with a taser several times before told to get into a hole and not to come out or he would be shot, while Daniels was allegedly driven half a mile further on and told to run, while an officer fired shots at him. The victims were outraged, and so were their families, and the matter was reported to the Police Internal Affairs office on Tuesday. And today, an official Police release confirms that the matter was reported, statements were taken and then forwarded to both Southern Regional Commander Robert Mariano and the Commander of Professional and Standard Branch in Belmopan Mr. Noel Leal. Mariano is, according to the release, currently in Independence conducting investigations.

    These high ranking police officer should do a thorough investigation towards police officers in Independence as there have been numerous police brutality being occurs in that area that are not being reported.

    If these stories are true, these officers should be charged with terrorist acts and sent to jail and never be allowed to hold another job that requires integrity. Until the people at the top begin to act with integrity the people at the bottom will continue to be a bunch of renegades.

    Integrity has to become an integral part of these officers training and it should be on going. The more I hear about what is going on in my country makes me feel like I belong to sadistic society with total disregard for human life.

    My prayer is that God move in such a way as to get the attention of this country and cause a change to take place and preserve the future of the country. I am reminded of the Bible account of Noah and the flood that destroyed the earth so that God could raise up a new and clean people. Beware Belize the hand of God is in the air, if he let it fall, you could be in for some cleansing which will cause much pain and crying. Correct yourselves before God has to correct you. God is not a vengeful God but he will not, cannot allow evil to continue for too long, especially if the people pray for change.

    To the Christians I say pray and ask God to change the direction of the country and pray for God’s perfect will to be done.
