    THE MURDERER REYES–should be waiting for the trial of MURDER–He should have been

    REMANDED in Prison –

  2. Edith says:

    Yes! Charge him. I would have agreed with self defense if the other officer wasn’t shot so many times. Reyes was a trained officer of the law. Even if Sanchez had on a bullet proof vest, he could’ve shot him other places that would’ve stopped him, not killed him!

    Absolutely! Cpl. Sanchez was murdered in cold blood and Sgt. Reyes must face crimminal charges.He should at least have his day in court to attempt to justify why he had to pump 9 bullets into a drunken man when he as a peace officer had the assistance of a BDF soldier at his assistance and a prison cell at his disposal.
    This looks to me like premeditated cold blooded murder. It is this kind of miscarriage of justice that have our streets flowing with blood anymore.

  4. cindy says:

    He should be charged just ;like every one else is charge. One if he is not charge then crime will start in the police department and eventually they will be killing themselves. to avoid issues they should implement laws. secondly if police do not do nothing that is when people appear dead. thirdly teach them a lesson that with laws it doesnt matter is you are on top every one is equal.

  5. Maria Gongora says:

    pls charge him so that they be the example we look up to them for protection not mudrers how can we trust and depend on them to stop crime when they are the criminal henng him 1 shot is understood but 5,6 inended to kill him shot him mek others realize and no that the PM serious about zero tolerance move up PM do something

  6. melly says:

    Yes he definately should be charge, he meant to kill the other officer. something like that there should be justice!

  7. NINA says:

    YES….. I THINK THAT HE SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH MURDER, HE KNEW HIS INTENTIONS FROM THE VERY FIRST HE HELD THAT FIREARM. TOO MANY BULLETS FOR SELF DEFENSE. ALL REYES NEEDED TO DO WAS SHOT HIM IN HIS FOOT, NOT IN HIS HEAD. THIS WILL BE. HE NEEDS TO BE CHARGED WITH MURDER. DPP PLEASE DO YOUR JOB.

  8. Stephen says:

    He is a Salvadorian so watch out. Why is he in our Police Department and we need to get a FBI to investigate this case as police here will not do a great job as they will try to protect the department from a law suit.

  9. Belive it says:

    Right is Right…..It dosen’t matter if Reyes is not a Belizean…..
    Anyone on San Pedro will tell you that Snachez was a loose cannon and threatened Sgt. Reyes life and premeditatively went to carry out his threat to kill him…..armed and with a bullet proof vest.
    What would you do?……. Don’t forget there were many other Police witnesses.

  10. Islander says:

    LOL if he gets charged all that will happen is that the jury will find him innocent…REMEMBER that the law works on evidence. What you can prove

  11. Francisco Patt says:

    Belive it and Islander you guys are clearly fans of Reyes but let me enlighten you, Reyes has killed before. He shot and killed a man at Roaring Creek and the shooting was justified because he said that the man had a knife in his hand. He beat up Reneae Nunnez sister causing her to miscarriage(baby killer) it was later justified. He then beat up PC Clarke at San Pedro with an Aluminuim Bat and broke the PC Hand beacuse the PC had gone absent. Now he killed Cpl Sanchez and it is justified. He will get sent back to San Pedro with Minister Heredia, you Belive It and Islander and lets hope that he does not kill you too and claim self defence. Who is the loose cannon now?

  12. roska says:

    How much foolishness are we capable of blurting out without doing some thinking?????

    YOU SHOOT A MAN IN THE LEG WHEN HE IS APPROACHING YOU WITH A .45 PISTOL AFTER HE HAS HIT YOU WITH A METAL PIPE AND AFTER THREATENING TO KILL YOU….???????

    Yeah right…. try that someday and your days of talking without thinking would be over……

    Cmon…… people…… Get real!!!!

    is this a show of how SMART we Belizeans are???

    Cant stand this stupidness…..

  13. Belive it says:

    Firstly….Nobody is any fan of anyone…….I am only commenting on this particular case from what I heard directly from many people that happen to have been witnesses……You may have a point on those various cases you mentioned…I do not know and therefore cannot comment.
    Each case should be investigated and taken on its own evidence and issue!

    Sounds like we have a Serial Killer on our hands, This person or animal should be arrested and incarcerated untill his day in court, the country has enough criminals on the loose for it to be protecting and authorizing an insane idiot to carry a loaded weapon and wear the uniform of it’s Police Department. Where is our Leaders when we need them, and do we have any one better than the current DPP or Forensic so called expert to do the job, these idiots are returning all the real murderers and criminals to the streets and sending poor people to jail for 5-6-7 years for a stick of weed or shoplifting a can of tuna to feed their kids, God save Belize or give us a Leader who is not afarid to stand up for what is right…
