    If it was the regular citizen, they would charge thousands, so that they cant pay it and end up in jail….shame on our system. no wonder people abroad have a wrong image on Belize. We need new minds to examine our judiciary and legislative system. In fact our whole system needs revaamping to be more geared towards justice and equal rights. These older heads seem tired…we need a breed of young politicians with a different perspective. Belizeans, if you feel you can lead better than these people, offer yourselfs as candidates. But remember, when you get up there, that you must remain loyal to the citizens of Belize. No more injustice, no more corruption and for God’s sake, Mr. Barrow, NO MORE TAXES!!!!

    A hundred dollars, that was all he had to pay for his recklesness, shame on Magistrate Sharon Lewis, he laughed at you all the way to the bank.

    no wonder he is happily smiling in his avatar pic above, a slap on the wrist.

    Glad he did not get the chance to hurt innocent people.

    I skipped my breathe lastnite when i heard $100. that is an offence to our people and pan top they gave him until may what a shame. that man must be real poor. Hello, thats the reason there will be more crime. man, i cant even say what i want to say. Judge, it was better to not charge him and just warn him to be more carefull the next time. What you did is like the saying in spanish says”solo para taparle el ojo al macho” haha crazy things can happen.
