Police and Business Owner Repulsed by Party Goers’ Response to Thirsty Thursday Incident

 A young lady experienced what is being described as a breakdown inside a night club in Belize City on Friday night. She stripped herself of her clothing in the middle of the dance floor, to the surprise of many patrons who were present. Suspicions, all unconfirmed at this time, are that the young lady was either unknowingly drugged, or willingly ingested a substance.  But, it is the initial response of the crowd of witnesses that has the Commissioner of Police and the owner of the establishment repulsed. Many of the partygoers decided to pull out their phones and record the incident. And he says, persons who leaked the video could face charges.

“Those persons who took out their phone and leaked it in the public domain. That amounts to cyber crime. They certainly can be dealt with, because it amounts to causing embarrassment to the young lady. Again, it goes to show the society we live. It is just like when we saw the BDF guy beating the individual in Orange Walk to death, people were passing by and nobody stopped to intervene, nobody. They just took out their phone and recorded the whole incident as it occurred. Now, with this one with the young lady in the night club, instead of getting something to cover the young lady from being exposed they just took out their phone and video her and leaked it out to the public. It speaks volumes of the society we are living in.”

“The videos were put out by some real unscrupulous people, and I think that is the heart of this matter here. We pay three police men, we have our manager, our cashier, my staff, and we take care of our people. Our motto as Thirtys has always been come as guest and leave as family. We have been doing that for thirteen years. The real issue here is people who stood around and took those videos. The police men responded and they did their jobs. I think that is something the Commissioner and the minister of Police have to address, not me. I pay police protection three nights a week. I have an in house security here overnight.  So, I am not sure what was lacking and I don’t want to venture what kind of training police men get and did not get. You can’t arrest a woman if you are a man, and that kind of things nuh. So, I am not sure what people wanted to see. What I would have wanted to see was that those people with those phones not pull them out and give us a chance to respond to this thing. It is not something that happens every day. It is the first time in thirteen years. How do you respond to that?”
