    Belize needs a “three strike law” like they have in the States to deal with career criminals. This is the third burglary by Gentle I can recall in the last year or so — how many might he have committed without getting caught? [Sure, I know he is "presumed innocent," but I also have a lot of years of experience, and I know that where there is smoke, there almost always is fire. And God knows the truth better than any of us, and He will have the last laugh and final say.]

    With a three strikes law, when a person suffers a second conviction for a serious crime like burglary, he must serve DOUBLE the normal sentence for his crime, and for a third conviction, LIFE IN PRISON.

    Or maybe one day his career will end when he walks into the wrong house, and leaves it feet first because the homeowner defended himself.
