P6aS


There Are Still Some Policemen Who Simply Cannot Write
The primary function of a policeman/woman is to record a statement
and write a report. If any member of this department lacks the ability to
perform this basic function then that individual should NEVER be
allowed to join the ranks of the department and if allowed to do so, that
person might very well be collecting a salary under false pretense.
Notwithstanding, many are the "policemen/women" who lack this
fundamental skill. Although the lack of this basis ability will never be
acceptable, some justification for this shortcoming can be blamed on the
criterion of years gone by when the minimum educational requirement
for enlistment into the Belize Police Force was a primary school
certificate. However, this minimum educational qualification was elevated
a few years ago to a high school diploma. The harsh current reality
however is that there are still some policemen who simply cannot write.
A policeman must possess the ability to listen to a complaint and put
that complaint properly in writing. Hence the reason why the victim of a
crime is legally referred to as the complainant and hence the reason when
a policeman, giving evidence in court, acknowledges the swearing to an
"information and complaint". Therefore, if an individual lacks the ability
to record a complaint then that person has no place in the department
which primarily deals with information and complaint.
The presence of these individuals on active duty is creating major
challenges for the department while simultaneously eroding the
credibility of the department and seriously jeopardizing the dispensing
of justice.
It is no secret within the department, that as they continue to conceal
their inability to record a statement, these individuals would oftentimes
encourage complainants not to provide statements by finding excuses
like: "If you proceed with this case, it will take up a lot of your time
because you will have to come to court a lot and you will lose time from
work, I willjust go out there and talk to this person for you" etc. Or like
the policeman who was posted in Santa Familia a few years ago, telling a
complainant who reported personally seeing Mr. X stealing his cattle,
that it was a civil matter and that he should take out a civil suit against
Mr. X, thereby washing his hands clean of an obviously criminal matter
and not having to record a single statement.
When recording a statement or writing a report, the basic rule in
policing is that the author can never provide too much information.
However, because of the lack of writing skills, the statements and reports
that these individuals produce are short both in length and in substance
consequently making it much harder for investigators to formulate the
elements of criminal charges and for prosecutors to marshal evidence in
court which ultimately reduces the number of offenders brought to
justice as well as the rate of convictions.
One therefore wonders, how did those Commandants of the Police
Training Academy sign these person's graduation certificates and allowed
them to emerge from the academy with a regulation number.
There is the excuse that these individuals might have slipped through
the cracks due to political intervention. If this is the case then we ask
politicians to please halt this practice. Mr. Politician, if you are seeking
employment for a voter who lacks the basic ability to write; the delicate
functions for effective policing in these modern times is certainly not the
place for this voter. For the love of your country and the security of the
nation, please look elsewhere for a job for these voters.
We have presented the problem. Now, for a possible solution: We are
not reinventing the wheel and we will not be suggesting anything new. In
fact the current Minister of Education has already taken the lead in this
regard.
The Ministry of Education is no longer tolerating unqualified teachers
to instruct the generations of the future. The Minister of Education said it
best in addressing teachers: "Ifyou do not qualify yourselves, then there
is no placefor you in the classroom".
It is in this light that we call on the new Commissioner of Police to
draw the line. Mr. Commissioner, it's time to conduct an audit of the
police personnel under your command. Formation Commanders across
the nation must be tasked, within a recorded period of time, to identify
all those policemen who lack the ability to record a statement and write a
report. These individuals must be reverts to the training academy for a
time recommended by literary professionals, and if at the culmination of
the training there remains persons who continue to lack this skill, then
like the Minister of Education would say, there is no placefor them in
the Police Department.

reverted to the training academy?


Well, like in all organizations, they have buddies under their command
who they might shield, eventually however, those shielded buddies could
be transferred to another formation at which point their shortcoming will
come to light and so in finding out how these individuals managed to slip
through the crack, all that needs to be done is to determine where that
individual was posted during the recorded period of the audit and after
independently certifying that the individual indeed lacks the skill, then
the Commander who failed to bring the matter to light, must be made to
answer for his actions.

Belize City Boy On Burglary Charge In Cayo


SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Cayo, Thursday, May 28,
2009:
San Ignacio police is keeping
a close watch on a Belize City
boy in custody as he awaits trial
for a May 24 burglary of a house
in San Ignacio Town.
Police are keeping a close
watch on the 15 year old boy
because, a few hours after being
detained, he broke out of the
detention cell located right next
to the front desk inside the
station and his appearance in
court is being delayed because
the courtroom is out of
commission for all of Thursday
and Friday of this week as it is
being used by the National
Emergency Management
Organization (NEMO) in
connection with their annual
hurricane preparedness exercise.
The incident began shortly
after 4:30 on the morning of
Sunday, May 24 when an alert
police constable and corporal on
mobile patrol in San Ignacio
Town spotted the boy with in
possession ofa laptop computer,


digital camera and other
electronic items. When
questioned, the boy was unable
to give the police a credible
explanation for being in
possession of the items at that
early hour of the morning.
Later that day, a San Ignacio
resident, Elder Acosta, 68, US
national, visited the police
station and reported that during
the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00
pm on Saturday, 23 May, his
house, located at #25 Ford
Young Drive in the Cahal Pech
Area of San Ignacio was
burglarized. Acosta informed
that the missing items included
an HP XL laptop computer with
power cord valued at $3,060; a
Kodak digital camera, valued at
$600; a silver ring and a silver
chain valued at $100 each, all for
a total value of $3,860.
At around 7:00 pm that same
Sunday night, police made a
check inside the nearby
detention cell and found out
that the boy was gone. Check
revealed that he escaped by
prying away the celotex


partition, entered an adjoining
office, removed 2 glass louvers,
exited the building into the cell
block yard, jumped over the jail
fence and was gone. Police
began an intensive search
around San Ignacio and Santa
Elena but the boy was no where
to be found.
An alert was instantly
communicated to all police
formations countrywide. The
hunt for the escapee eventually
ending when he was detained in
Belize City. He was brought


back to San Ignacio and was
placed inside one of the more
secured main holding cells as
he awaits appearance before
Magistrate Kathlene Lewis on
Monday, June 1.
While we run the risk of
discriminating against strangers
in the community, local crime
investigators are of the opinion
that a majority of burglaries
committed in the jurisdiction are
the workings of strangers in the
community. The public is
therefore advised to report any
suspicious activity or unfamiliar
suspicious person in your area.

US Naval Frigate On 5 Day Visit To Belize


'he USS Kauffman n ''he High Seas


BELMOPAN, Tuesday, May 26, 2009:
A release from the US Embassy in
Belmopan informed of today's arrival in
Belize of the US Military Ship, the USS
Kauffman from the U.S. Southern Command
Naval Base.
The US Naval Vessel will be in Belize as
part of Operation Southern Seas 2009 which
is a six-month naval deployment to the
Caribbean, Central and South American
region.


The vessel's five-day visit to Belize ends
on Sunday, May 31, 2009. While in Belize,
the crew will paint several buildings at the
Stella Maris School in Belize City.
The crew will also conduct training
exercises with the Belize Defense Force in
areas such as small arms repairs and search
procedures.
This visit provides an opportunity for
nations in the Caribbean, Central America,
and South America to build and maintain


regional partnerships, to develop
professional understanding in the region,
and to increase regional stability through
enhancing inter-operability in combating
illicit maritime activities.
The USS Kauffman is one of only twelve
Frigates with the enhanced MK 92 MOD 6
CORT Fire Control System which, when
combined with the ship's two helicopters,
76mm gun, and state of the art
anti-submarine warfare system, provides the
USS Kauffman with an effective offensive
and defensive capability in today's
multi-threat environment.
The vessel has a crew of approximately 250
personnel. This relatively small crew size
results in a close knit team that relies
heavily on the technical skills and
leadership abilities of each and every
Sailor while providing ample opportunities
for professional and personal growth.
The vessel is named after US Vice
Admiral James Laurence Kauffman
(1887-1963) who served in the navy for 41
years. He was only 21 years of age when he
graduated from the US Naval Academy in
1908.
Admiral Kauffman held a variety of wide
ranging command both afloat and ashore
during World War 1. He provided 41 years
of loyal service to the US Navy. He passed
away at age 76 being 14 years after retiring
for the arm of the US Military service he
loved most.

what it does to the adjoining
Belmoral Hotel.

One Of Those


Last Friday morning a blonde
walked up to one of the sales
clerk inside Courts Store in San
Ignacio Town and said, "Iwould
like to buy this TV."
The clerk replied, "Sorry, but
we don't sell to blondes."
So, the blonde went to her hair
dressser and had her hair black.
She returned to Courts Store the
next day. She went straight up


Two blonde men were
working on a house. The one
who was nailing down siding
would reach into his nail pouch,
pull out a nail and either toss it
over his shoulder or nail it in.
The other blonde guy, figuring
this was worth looking into,
asked, "Why are you throwing
those nails away?"

to the same clerk and said, "I

And again, the clerk answered,
"Sorry, we do not sell to
blondes."
Deeply puzzled, the blonde
asked, "How do you know that
I am a blonde?"
And the clerk said, "Because
the 'TV' you want to buy is a
microwave."


The first guy explained, "If I
pull a nail out of my pouch and
it's pointed TOWARD me, I
throw it away because it's
defective. If it's pointed
toward the HOUSE, then I
nail it in!"
On hearing this silly response,
the second blonde guy got really
upset and yelled, "You

are pointed toward you aren't
defective! They're for the

the southern villages of
Independence, Placencia and
Monkey River.
The elevated concrete water
reservoir in the village of


Independence collapsed and was
left in rubbles on the ground.
This is certainly the worst
tremor that many of us have
experienced in Belize which
from the lack of consultation
with any geologist, reminds us
of the predictions of the late
Geologist, James "Jungle Jim"
Cavanaugh, who in several of
his writings warned of the
effects that oil exploration in
Belize could have on the
instability of the earth below us.

Dear STAR;
T den bridge across the Macal
River, between San Ignacio and
Santa Elena Town.
As driver and a person who
frequently take my family for a
refreshing swim in the Macal
river, I have been expressing
similar concern to my friends
(those who drive across this
bridge and those who swim in
the river).
This is the only legal crossing
between our twin towns and so
we are compelled to use it, but
everytime I drive across it I pray
that I will reach safely on the
other side.
Having seen the condition of


Dear Editor;
Please share with readers of the
STAR Newspaper my thoughts
on the matter of the increasing
crime situation that is affecting
all of us.
It is my understanding that
laws are enacted to protect the
lawful from the lawless. To
protect innocent victims from
murderers, rapists, thieves,
con artists etc.
It is also my understanding that
laws are dynamic and are
constantly adjusted to suit the
changing times and conditions
in which we live.
If my understanding is right
then I ask: "Isn't it time to
change the laws to address the
increasing wave of violence
sweeping across this once
peaceful and tranquil haven of
democracy?"
Isn't it time to change the law
especially at a time when our
main penal facility is referred to
as the RAMADA; At a time
when gang bangers are more
afraid of gang laws than the laws
of the land?
Isn't it time to change the way
we do things when we hear
repeated comments like: "yu di
waste yu time with the police. "
and "Dipolice da waste a time."
In effect what these comments
are saying is that the law of the
land is ineffective, it can no


the foundation of the bridge, I
have adapted two rules which I
have been sharing with all my
friends:
Rule #1: I never swim nor do I
allow my family to swim within
150 feet of the bridge and
Rule #2: I never drive my little
car behind any heavy duty
vehicle or loaded cargo truck
(Petroleum or cement) crossing
this bridge. I always wait until
these vehicle cross because
being one who knows the
condition at the bottom of this
bridge I believe that it is better
to be safe than sorry.

Cayo


longer protect the lawful and the
innocent in the society .... Then,
isn't it time to adjust or change
the laws?
When the lower courts remand
suspected armed robbers and
attempt murders to custody ....
"Good job," we say. But when
the common practice is for these
accused robbers, attempt
murderers and thieves or their
relatives, to pay a lawyer the 15
hundred dollars t to get supreme
court bail for them as they
return to society to continue
committing crimes.... Isn't it not
time to change the law?
When a lawyer in a double
murder case can tell the mother
of one of the accused murderer
that his job at defending her son
can be made much easier if only
she could pay someone so that
her son's confession statement
can mysteriously disappear from
the file.... Isn't it time to change
the law?
It is my sincere desire that
with a Prime Minister like the
Hon. Dean Barrow, who is
known to be one of Belize's best
attorneys, that he should be able
to utilize his legal expertise to
address all these loop holes and
lacunas in the legal system as a
first step in addressing the
nation's crime problem so that
the system of can again begin to
serve as a protector of the

Friend's Concern


innocent and hard working
builders of this wonderful
nation of ours.
Responding To A
Dear STAR;
The comment in town is that
you have retired the "People Di
Suffa Out Ya" vehicle you once
drove and is now sporting a later
model Ford vehicle.
The concern that is being
asked: "Has People Stopped
Suffering Out Ya?". It looks
like you are doing well.
As a childhood friend and
classmate, I think that I can ask
this question without prejudice.
Hugh Daly
San Ignacio.

Ed. Note
Vehicles, like other
equipment in the world of
business, are machines and with
time they deteriorate and are
replaced.
In business terms it is referred
to as "depreciation ".
In a more direct response to
the concern you expressed
regarding "People DiSuffa Out
Ya", ask yourself the question,
in terms of consumer prices, as
a people, are we better now than
we were 15 months ago?
Take note of the following
changes in consumer prices
since the change of government
15 months ago:
1. Fuel prices have gone down
from 12 change to 7change a
gallon.
2. The price of a sack of flour
has gone down two times and it
now costs 19 dollars less than it
was prior to February 2008.


3. The most recent reduction
in the price of butane is now
recorded at 37 dollars less than
what it was 15 months ago. This
commodity has gone down from
126 to 89 dollars for a 100 lb
cylinder.
4. The price of the Belizean
staple, RK beans, has gone down
from $3.25 a pound to $1.50 a
pound.
5. The price of eggs has gone
down by 50% from 10 dollars
for a tray of 30 (remember the
days of 3 eggs for a dollar) to
$5.00 for the same tray of 30
eggs.
6. The dreaded General Sales
Tax has been removed from all
medical supplies and medical
services.
The list can go on and on as the
PUC continues to fight, tooth
and nail, to get the monopoly
electricity company to reduce
rates.
Notwithstanding, as it is
written "by the sweat of thy
brow shall ye eat bread". The
good book tells us that since the
beginning of time, from the
garden of Eden, life was
mandated to be a constant
challenge.
Life will therefore never cease
to be challenging for all of us
and we will all continue to be
challenged with every passing
day. However, recent reduction
in consumer prices should make
life that much better for all of
us.

Challilo Is
BY: George and Candy
Gonzalez, San Ignacio, Cayo
Colin bh, in his article "A new
Commissioner is not enough"
(Amandala 17 May 2009),
sounded like someone honestly
trying to make sense of Chalillo,
after the fact, not realizing that
the points he raises were raised
at the time (like bagasse as
an alternative source of power
generation).
Unfortunately, most of what
he raised came from the
Fortis-BECOL propaganda. It
has been said that if a lie is
repeated enough, people come to
accept it as truth. We seek to
make sure that does not happen.
The facts are that our electricity
rates keep going up, the Macal
River is polluted, and the dam
poses a constant danger to those
of us who live downstream.
The site chosen for the Chalillo
is sandstone and shale, not
granite, and was built on an
earthquake fault line, which was
erased from the geological map
when they proposed to build the
dam. We did not say this;
geologists said it.
Those FACTS all came
to light in the court case
challenging the inaccuracies in
the Chalillo Environmental
Impact Assessment (EIA). In
fact, the dam was re-designed
because of the truths that came
to light in that court drama.
The engineers that built the
Chalillo were hired by Fortis.
We asked to see the NEW
design of the dam, and be
informed of the added costs, but
were not given access to that
information; maybe Colin bh or
other readers could ask BECOL
to make these new designs and
costs public.
About the reservoir being
unable to sustain the required
level of water during the dry
season that too came from
geologists. The reservoir is built
above a major Mayan site which
was conveniently covered up a
large limestone system filled
with caves. Again, geologists
doubted it could maintain a high
level of water, year round, not
us.
We have not been provided
information on the quality of the
water in the Macal River, but we
know that Belize Water Services
is having a heck of a time trying
to provide the twin towns with


Bad News
clean water. BECOL was
supposed to provide information
on water quality but they
haven't.
As to the mercury in the fish,
Public Health has reported on
the high levels of mercury in
the fish and issued public
warnings. They have not been
forthcoming on updating and
informing the public on the
conditions and safety of eating
the fish. We understand
the financial constraints on
government, but this is an
expense that is supposed to be
carried by BECOL. And the
Department of Environment is
supposed to be assuring this is
done.
As to rates compared to other
countries, BEL only shows us
comparisons to Caribbean
countries, islands!!! It does not
compare our rates with other
Central American countries.
BEL claims our rates would have
been much higher. But they have
a long record of not being
forthcoming about the facts.
The Chalillo and Mollejon
have NOT brought electricity
prices down ask anyone who
pays their own electric bill. We
are still dependent on Mexico for
half of our power (that is hardly
self-reliant). And please, let's
clear up the old mantra about


50%


Chalillo reducing flooding. It is
true it has reduced the amount
of flash flooding which cleans
the river. A reservoir that is
built to produce electricity has
the goal of being kept as full as
possible. A reservoir to reduce
flooding has the goal of
keeping levels low, so it can hold
floodwaters when they come.
We have not forgotten there were
two floods, the tropical wave
and the June 1st tropical storm,
when the water was pouring over
the Chalillo as if there was no
dam.
Ask the people living
downstream how comfortable
they feel with another hurricane
season upon us. We still have


admssonpglo~eulzI wwIa nEd b


no dam break warning system
and people have no idea of what
to do in case of a dam failure.
We do not want the dam to
break; we do not want to say "we
told you so". We want to have
protections in place. We want
to feel safe in our homes.
Colin bh called us "feisty".
We can't argue with that. We
did resent the names the former
GOB and their cronies called us
(such as "eco-terrorists") for
honestly speaking out and trying
to set the record straight.
If we had it to do all over, we
would approach the matter
differently, but we would and
still do oppose Chalillo. It is
still a lie.

Education Week Celebrated 10th to 15th May


BELMOPAN, Monday, May
18, 2009:
Education Week was
celebrated countrywide during
the week of the 10th- 15th May,
2009.
The theme for this year's
celebration was "Better
Schools, Better Citizens, Better
Belize, whatever it takes: It's
Everybody's Business!"
Minister of Education, Hon.
Patrick Faber opened the week
with a radio and television
address in which he described
his experiences from an
intensive tour of all schools
which he has undertaken since
taking office in February 2008.
Minister Faber said, "I have
visited schools .. where children
come to school barefooted. I
have seen overcrowded
classrooms. I have heard of
young children going through
the garbage in search of food
to eat, I have met teachers
whose only qualification is a
high school diploma or an
Associate Degree in a field
other than education, I hear
complaints of schools wanting
to register some students of one
religion before others."
These observations are only a
few which capsulate the
minister's experience. He
additionally highlighted the
need for change through the
joint efforts of all "Children
and Young People, Parents
and Guardians, Teachers,
Principals and Managements,
Religious Organizations,
Community Organizations,


(Photo L-R): Former Minister of Education (2003 08)
and Member for Freetown, Hon. Francis Fonseca (PUP);
Current Minister of Education and Member for Collet,
Hon. Patrick Faber (UDP) and Former Minister of
Education (1993-98) Elodio Aragon (UDP)


and other Social Sector
Organizations, NGO's and
Private Sector Actors,
Politicians of whatever color
or creed, Fellow Citizens and
Residents of Belize. Let us
come together for each other
as we make Better Schools,
Better Citizens, Better Belize,
whatever it takes: It's
Everybody's Business!"
As a true leader setting
the right example the minister
translated his words into action
by holding a meeting with two
former Ministers of Education,
Hon. Francis Fonseca and Mr.
Elodio Aragon, primarily to
discuss a bi-partisan approach
to improving and creating a
successful educational system
for our nation. During this
meeting Minister Faber
extended an invitation to both
gentlemen to become active
participants within his ministry.
This gesture of humility by
the minister emphasizes the
maturity, determination and
willingness of the leadership in
making education a priority.
Also in commemoration of
Education Week, other officials
from the Ministry went on
various morning shows to
discuss the products and services
offered by the different units
within the Ministry. The week
should have culminated with a
grand expo at the UB campus in
Belmopan, but due to the threat
of the Influenza A HIN1 it was


postponed and will now be held
on Friday, June 12, 2009.
During Education Week,
Minister Faber also toured
schools in San Pedro Town
where he was met with much


enthusiasm from the students,
teachers, managements and
parents. He learned of the
hardships confronting them such
as overcrowded schools and a
significant percentage of
untrained teachers. While these
concerns are not unique to San
Pedro Town, the Minister gave
his assurance that priority will be
afforded to their concerns.
The Minister concluded the
week with a breakfast meeting
on Saturday, May16, with
religious leaders in his Collet
Constituency. The discussion
focused on collaborative efforts
to be undertaken to address the
issues plaguing the constituency
and society at large. Issues
suchas crime, unemployment
and education were high on the
list of concerns. The group came
up with some strategies which
will be implemented over the
next few months. The Minister
expressed his hopes that these
consultative and partnership
meetings can be held on a
regular basis so that the work
can continue in building a
peaceful and constructive
society strengthening the future
for all young Belizeans.

CORPORAL THOMAS WILL BE LAID TO

REST WITH FULL POLICE HONORS


in San Ignacio Town.
Corporal #409 Errol Thomas is
predeceased by his father,
Florentino Thomas. He is
survived by his mother,
who accompanied him on the
medical trip to Chicago, Ms.
Juana Martinez (Belmopan);
Brothers: Edwin Thomas
(Indiana), Wilfred Thomas
(Chicago), Gilbert Thomas
(Chicago) and Tom Gongora
(Chicago); Sisters: Rose
Thomas (Belmopan), Dorita
Thomas (Chicago) and Miriam
Gongora (Chicago).
He is also survived by his wife
of 22 years, Mrs. Barbara
Thomas, residing on Mango
Street in Santa Elena, who, along
with his mother, accompanied
him on the medical trip to
Chicago. He is also survived by
two daughters: Amy and Heidi
Thomas; two sons: Ryan and
Errol Thomas Jr., as well as
several Aunts, Uncles, Cousins,
Nieces, Nephews and a host of
other relatives and many friends
including his colleagues in the
Belize Police Department.
Police sources informed that
the body will be arriving over the


weekend from Chicago. The
current plan is for it to be held
at the morgue in Belize City
until around 11:00 am on
Tuesday, June 2, when it will be
transported to Santa Elena
where it will be held for an hour
before the procession to St.
Ignatius Church in Santa Elena
for a 2:30 pm mass of the
resurrection.
Commissioner of Police
Crispin Jefferies informed that,
as a serving member of the
Department, up to the time of
his passing, Corporal Thomas
will be buried with full police
honors and that he will
personally be in attendance as
this is the first funeral of a
fellow policeman that he will
be attending in his capacity as
the new Commissioner of
Police.
Commissioner Jefferies also
took the opportunity to express
his personal sympathy to the
bereaved family as well as the
sympathies of the department he
heads. Mr. Jefferies informed
that he knew Corporal Thomas
personally as the corporal was
once posted under his command
for several years.


Belizean Mechanic Arrested For The


Murder Of A Guatemalan Laborer


chop and clean the farm. He
began working on Monday May
18. Reports indicate that the
deceased was last seen alive at
around 6 o'clock that same
Monday morning when he
visited his employer's house for
food to take to the farm.
Police reports that on Tuesday,
May 19 farm owner sent his 18
year old son, Rudy Bautista, to
plant some corn on the farm.
Upon arrival, shortly before 8:00
am, Bautista found the farm
house burnt to the ground along
with the burnt remains of a
human body almost in the
center of what was once the farm
house. He rushed back to his
father's house in Buena Vista
Village and reported the
matter to him. The owner of
the farm subsequently contacted


the police thereby triggering
the investigation which conse-
quently led to the arrest, on a
singular murder charge, of
Victor Vargas, 32, Belizean
mechanic also from the
neighboring village of Buena
Vista.
Reports suggest that as a result
of their dependency on drugs,
the deceased and the suspect
were acquaintances.
While one lead is suggesting
that they were involved in an
argument over some lumber and
a few sheets of zinc; another
path that the investigation is
reportedly taking is that the
murder was actually a paid
hit and that the victim's head
was the proof of "mission
completed" requested by those
who ordered and paid for the
killing.
