Allegedly Shoot Dog in Front of Children

Aside from roughing up the elderly man and the minor, the family dog, Prince, was shot twice and killed, allegedly at the hands of the officers. Joyce says that the children have been left traumatized because the dog was killed in front of them.

“Yes, one ah my small lee grandson and when ih done he come to me and ask me granny the dog dead? Ih the breathe? He start to ask me questions. Why you have to do something like that in front of a child? The child only about four years old. The neighbor had to take the children for a walk in the park because they are traumatized.”

“Would you say the GSU used excessive force?”


Joyce Slusher

“Yes. It was. If you come to do a job why you have to shoot the dog? We have that dog from my granddaughter eleven years old.”

    Really sick of us DIGESTING this nonsense..children have a RIGHT to be protected from violence in every way…the psychological effects of experiencing this is worse than the ‘now-outlawed’ corporal punishment …the teachers cannot discipline children (even when it is for the good of that child and the entire class of children who suffer from ill-behaved students and the society at large who has to “deal with” ill-behaved adults in years to come) but the GSU and other armed forces have walking papers to circumvent the law. The law was supposedly formulated to protect the most vulnerable, etc..We are a failing society that is punishing the most vulnerable instead of protecting them…May God have Mercy on us as a Nation…Conditions are RIPE for REVOLUTION….I hope there is an investigation, conducted by an AUTONOMOUS BODY…Make it happen Minister of National Security or all the so-called HUMAN RIGHTS / CHILD PROTECTION GROUPS, … Belize is falling apart from the center…Guatemala is watching….the whole world actually!
