GSU bust 2 minors moments after attempted robbery

Belize City patrol police stopped a robbery in progress on Thursday night and apprehended the assailants, one is sixteen years old and the other is seventeen. Around eight-thirty on Thursday night, twenty-six year old Yilan Guan, owner of ‘MK Fast Food’ was inside her business when two men entered and demanded money. Guan told police that the perpetrators went behind the counter; one of the robbers held a gun and took a hundred dollars in cash and a cell phone valued at one thousand six hundred dollars. But soon enough, GSU personnel on patrol in the area surprised the robbers. Outnumbered, the robbers dropped the money and cell phone and tried to get away. But they didn’t get far and both minors, a Hispanic and a Creole, were apprehended. One of the teens was discovered with a point three-fifty-seven revolver and six live rounds of ammunition. The minors are in custody.

    This is the one time the GSU needed to unload a barrage on this scumbags…

    This is a good time for the Justice system to set an example. plain and simple, they could have killed the store owner for alittle bit of nothing like it happen in the past. time to give them the max time, so the rest of Belize drop their jaw in disbelieve

    I hope that these teenagers are treated like adults. They committed adult crimes and should be dealt with accordingly. They should be given the maximum penalty. Shame on the defense attorneys. They encourage these thugs. Where is their loyalty to their country. This is why Belize is going in the sewer.

    Kudos to the GSU who did their job. I know a lot of people must be saying that they should have shot the robbers, but let’s be real my people, had any of the youths been shot, then the whole nation would be jumping over the GSU saying that they are accustomed to just shooting like crazy and not practicing restraint. But nonetheless, I think we are all happy that two thugs are behind bars. The overriding question is: Who are their parents? How have the parents raised these kids? Do the parents exercise any kind of discipline? I think that we as parents need to be the first firewall in trying to have a better nation. I know we can Belizeans, we surely can.

    Dickey Bradley will get them off scott-free in a few weeks, and they’ll kill the shop owners they rob the next time next time. Easy money for them, with very little chances of them going to jail for more than a few weeks.

    The attorneys are only doing their jobs and every one of us deserves to be treated the way the law reads. A statement like this only encourages those that should be enforcing the law to do a poor job.

    The enforcement guys need to learn how to protect and preserve a crime scene for evidence. A court of law does not function by public opinion but with evidence.

    I too wish that the crime in Belize would be reduced and could be reduced back to where it use to be many years ago, but there is a correct way of doing so in any civil society. If we violate the rights of the criminals we are then no better than they are. The DPP needs to step up their game and do not penalize magistrates and judges who work hard at their jobs. These are the real problems we have in Belize!
