Why Did Police Respond Two Hours after Attack on Lark Caye?

Kareem Musa

And the police’s response to the gun attack on Lark Caye also came under criticism. Reports circulated that it took the police two hours to respond to the caye which is located a mere six miles off the coast of Placencia. Today, Minister Kareem Musa told the press that the sea condition at the time was a major factor, but that the officers persevered and rescued the victim.

“You will know that it was an extremely rough day, extremely rough. We are talking three to four foot waves out there, that was when the cold front was coming in and so it was very difficult for the officers to get there but once they did they were able to rescue Mister Christian and take him to safety and now he is recovering well at the hospital so we are very grateful for that. He is a very good sport because he loves our country the same way that we do. I am sure that even though it was a horrifying experience for him, that he is grateful for the assistance that he received.”
