Shot while walking on highway

Forty-three year old Kenrick Sutherland, a laborer of Belize City, is tonight recovering from gunshot wounds he received while walking along the Western Highway on Monday night.  He reported to police that he was in the vicinity of Belize Refrigeration Limited at around eight o’clock when he heard three gunshots.  When the shooting subsided Sutherland realized that he was hit to the right side of the abdomen.  The slug that penetrated his stomach exited the other side of his body.  Police are investigating the incident but no arrests have been made as yet.  Meanwhile, Sutherland remains hospitalized at the KHMH in a stable condition.

    When I was in the States recently in San Diego I saw a portable police watch-tower that could be moved to any neighbourhood to watch for criminal conduct. It was loaded with video cameras and an officer who could radio for other units to respond to anything.

    I didn’t ask what it cost, but I think we could use some here to clamp down on the hot spots of crime and violence.

    i feel the situation in Belize is sad, they should put more cops in the high crime area 24/7 just patroling around. Once a criminal see the cops they will likely refrain from doing negative thing. The cops definatly haff do more that they are currrently doing, folks in NYC s kinda afraid fu go home cause a all the madness that is going on. SAD, SAD, SAD
