Charles Leslie Jr. in Court for violent crimes in and out of prison

Charles Leslie Jr.

In court today, twenty-four year old Charles Mervin Leslie Jr., a George Street Gang associate appeared for the attempted murder and wounding of another remanded inmate. According to twenty-one year old Woodrow Reyes, on the morning of Monday April twenty-third, he was stabbed in the neck whilst he was on remand in prison. It is reported that the stabbing was motivated by the execution of George Street boss, Sheldon Pinky Tillett. Leslie was read three charges, one count of attempted murder, wounding and use of deadly means of harm upon Reyes.

Leslie also appeared in court today for a separate charge of attempted murder on Durant Rhaburn which happened in August of last year.  That case was adjourned for June eleventh.

    Leslie is clearly incompetent as an assassin — TWO separate counts of attempted murder — but his heart is also clearly purely evil.

    If guilty, he should be sentenced to stay in prison until he is dead. GOB is paying 195 gang members through “Restore Belize” — if we just kill or lock up those evil souls, Belize will be a wonderful place once again for the decent, productive folks.

    I’ve studied the parts of the United States where violent crime has dropped in recent years, trying to figure out how they successfully defeated high murder rates. They all have one thing in common: they adopted SEVERE punishments for violent crimes, like the popular “Three Strikes” laws. An offender’s third serious offence OF ANY KIND results in prison for life. Even if they get out one day, they are old and gray and the fight has been taken out of them.

    WE NEED LAWS THAT WILL MAKE IT EASIER AND MANDATORY TO PUT VIOLENT CRIMINALS AWAY FOR DECADES. Take the 195 “Restore Belize” sociopaths off the streets, and we can live in relative peace, like the good, old days.

    Due process, innocent until proven guilty, probable cause to search all seem to have vantished in Belize. We now rule with the gun and the policy of decree from Barrow and the Police State…Democratic principles are history. No wonder this Prime minister ran to the USA and visited Gearge Bush right after he was elected the first term…he wanted to get permission to do whatever he feels is necessary without regard for human or civil rights…..Racism and sexism and intolerance and unlawful search and seizure are all the end of democratic principles in Belize. The Jewel is tarnished and Barrow and his thuggish ways have to questioned by all citizens of Belize. We did not mandate abuse, law and order does not come from the end of a gun unless you live in a dictatorship. Who is in charge of the GSU,anyway?
