As we’ve mentioned, News Five caught up with Finnegan at the Precinct One compound this evening, upon the release of SSG boss Alex Underwood who was detained overnight by Belize City police.  Underwood is one of several individuals who are part of the ongoing peace initiative.

“I got a call that, and I must say, I continue to trust and believe in the work that we do, the intervention that we do on a weekly basis with these guys because the person who messaged me is from the opposing side of South Side, who sent me a message and said, “Ms. D., Alex is being detained.  Can you go and check on him?”  And I had to really look at the message to say, “Wow, why would he be telling me this?”  So of course I came over.  One of the things that my purpose is to work together to bring calm into especially Belize City.  There’s so much happening within our society that I think that if we continue to frustrate, it’s like an ants nest that is dormant and if you step into it, the wrong path, you’re going to stir up a whole issue of them retaliating.”
