Did he view himself as judge, jury and executioner? What prompted him, as he admitted to a commanding officer, to “Knock the young man” because of what the boy was accused to have done. Does this case show that some policemen are in dire need of anger management training? Even in primary schools, corporal punishment has been outlawed. What therefore gives the police the right to corporally punish a child in his care? Police Constable #11 Francis Aldana today finds himself on the hot seat as he stands criminally charged for allegedly causing harm to a 15 year old minor who, on Tuesday, May 1, was brought to the station by a brother and a sister for allegedly misbehaving at home. The case is being handled personally by Inspector Reymundo Reyes in his current capacity as officer commanding the formation. It is alleged that when the boy was brought into the station he was handed over to the accused who was assigned diarist duties. SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Wednesday, May 2, 2012: Tuesday, May 1, 2012 was Labor Day and so a Belize City man and woman might have erroneously thought that, like the rest of the nation, the police was on holiday with their guards relaxed. The couple’s surprise was obvious when cruising down the Western Highway in the middle of Santa Elena Town, as the police pulled them over and found a whole sack of weed inside the trunk of the car in which they were travelling. Acting upon information The Accused PC#11 Francis Aldana received, police Inspector Reymundo Reyes (currently the most senior policeman attached to the San Ignacio police station) and a team of policemen, at around 12:30 in the afternoon on Labor Day, Tuesday, May 1, 2012, intercepted a black Nissan Altima sedan with Belize City private license plates #31459 on the Western Highway in front of Allen’s Hardware Store. The male driver and his sole companion, a female in the front passenger seat, were ordered out of the car by the police.

Noise pollution is an offence contrary to the laws of Belize. The people living on the entire length of Joseph Andrews Drive in San Ignacio Town, especially those living in the area of that section sloping down to the Sacred Heart College compound, have for many, many years been complaining about the ear piercing noise produced by truck drivers who are in the habit of applying the jake brakes of the trucks they drive just simply for the heck of it. They have zero consideration especially for the just born babies and elderly folks living along that corridor. This condition also applies to the multitude of residents living on the Western Highway in Santa Elena, Red Creek, Esperanza and areas beyond. Experienced truck drivers say that there is absolutely no need for these irresponsible truck drivers to be causing this unnecessary disturbance which they do at any hour of the early morning, noon or night. Now, the question is, why is the police not doing anything to put an end to this irresponsible behavior? Why is our elected town council, with its own traffic section, not doing anything to stop this terrible disturbance? Every one of these truck drivers know that they cannot and will never pull off this kind of crap anywhere beyond our borders. It does not require rocket science to halt this behavior in its tracks. All it takes is for someone to mount the necessary operations against those offending drivers. How can we halt the noise pollution? The majority of these drivers do not own the trucks they drive. They work for a boss. The boss makes money when the wheels of his truck are rolling. Any delay in moving from point A to point B is a charge on the truck owner. A truck owner would not normally retain the services of an irresponsible driver who delays operations. Irresponsible – that’s just what these heartless, noise making drivers are and so the authorities must expose their irresponsible behavior. How can these irresponsible drivers be exposed? We first start by canvassing residents along the corridor, with a view of identifying those areas of frequent infraction. When the policeman is on idle patrol, he parks the mobile in a nearby off road ready to rush out on hearing the offending sound. The driver is detained, the truck is taken out of commission (wheels stop rolling – money stop making) for the entire duration while the driver is processed and criminally charged. His boss senses the delay and if it persists that driver will inevitably lose that job. No one wants to lose their job – The word will rapidly spread around – They will halt the irresponsible behavior – the community will be spared of this nuisance – and life, along the corridor, will be much more pleasant. Issuing these offenders with traffic tickets is not cutting it. It takes 10 to 15 minutes to write up a traffic ticket. This is time that they can make up by applying more speed on the road as they endeavor to erase the delay in time so as to minimize the chance of their employers catching up on to them. The speeding to make up lost time further lends for the possibility of these irresponsible individuals causing traffic accidents and possible loss of life along the way. On the flip side, processing them through the courts takes a few hours and this is lost time that will be harder for them to conceal from their employers. At about 5:30 pm on Wednesday, May 2, the boy accompanied by his mother visited the police station in San Ignacio where they officially lodged a report requesting court action against PC #11 Francis Aldana. The report alleged that when the child was brought into the station on Tuesday, May 1 he was handed over to PC Aldana who was working diarist duties at the time. It is alleged that the accused policeman was taking note of the child’s particulars as is required prior to detaining him. Aldana reportedly asked the boy: ” You da bad bway then?” According to the report, when the child answered “No Sir” he was reportedly asked to repeat his response and after he did, it is alleged that the accused policeman stood up from behind the desk and punched him in the stomach which, according to the boy, caused him pain. In his statement to police, the child alleges that after punching him in the stomach, the policeman escorted him to a holding cell where he instructed him to take off his shoes after which he was again attacked by the policeman who, this time, stomped him on the left leg causing him severe pain. The child alleges that the final attack came just as he was being placed inside the cell at which point, he alleges that the same policeman punched him to the left side of his face before shoving him into the cell In corroboration of the boy’s story, and upon being examined by the police, the child was observed with a swelling in the area of the left rib cage and complaining of pain to the left side of his face. He was issued with a pair of medico-legal forms and escorted to the San Ignacio Hospital where the medical officer on duty, Dr. David Pacheco certified the injuries as harm. The report indicates that upon being questioned, the accused policeman reportedly admitted that he “did knock the young man but it was because I got anger when I heard that he pulled knife at his mother” Upon this admission Aldana was, on Thursday, May 3, immediately cautioned, formally arrested and accordingly charged for causing harm to the boy. He was slated to appear in court shortly after being formally charged today, however, there was no magistrate in court on Thursday afternoon. Aldana was consequently freed on a $500 police signed bail and ordered to return to court at 9:00 am the following day, Friday, May 4, 2012. After his appearance in court the report will be forwarded to police headquarters in Belmopan where it will be decided if this policeman will be allowed to continue performing duties as per usual or if he will be placed on interdiction and relieved from all police duties until the case is brought to a final conclusion. What on earth was going through this policeman’s mind. Of all persons he knows that every movement at the front desk and in the cell block area is recorded specifically to protect citizens against these kinds of abuses. He obviously was of the impression that this one was not going to come back to bite him.

Page 6 STAR Tels: 626-8822 & 626-8841 & 804-4900 Email:starnewspaper@gmail.com Sunday, May 6, 2012 Dr. Mario EstradabranSAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo, Wednesday, May 2, 2012: No less than fifteen is the number of dead bodies in morgues across the country awaiting the legally required post mortem examination, as the nation is without the services of the only forensic specialist in the country. Dr. Mario Estradabran, Police Forensic Specialist today confirmed that the 2-year contract he held with the government expired on February 1, 2012, and that he is still in negotiations with the Ministry of National Security aimed at arriving at mutually agreeable terms for a contract renewal. A source within the Police Department informed that although the contract expired over three months ago, Dr. Estradabran would still perform the service on an individual basis when requested. However, as of last week he has totally discontinued providing the service as he awaits word from the ministry on the new contract. The last post mortem he is said to have conducted was last week on the body of Taylor Street gang leader, Arthur Young. A reliable source informed that when the last contract expired at the end of January 2012, the ministry reportedly sent him a contract, under the same terms and conditions as well as salary, as the previous one. He reportedly refused the offer and instead submitted one with changes in terms, conditions and of course with a sizable salary increase. His submission was reportedly rejected by the ministry prompting the commencement of negotiation for mutually acceptable new arrangements. While in the past Dr. Hugh Sanchez who is employed by the Ministry of Health at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Dead Bodies Stacking Up In The Morgues Belize City, would pitch in to assist, he is not a Forensic Specialist but rather a Clinical Pathologist. Given the demand for the service and the scarcity of immediate specialist replacement, a compromise with Dr. Estradabran is expected sooner rather than later as the number of dead bodies continue to increase in morgues across the country. The situation is further aggravated by the need to determine cause of death and as the laying loved ones to their final resting place should supersede other considerations. Furthermore, the longer a body is kept in the morgue, the more expensive it gets for relatives as morgue fees increase with every passing day. The morgue fee, for example at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital is twenty five dollars per day for the first three days that is of course if the patient passed away whilst undergoing treatment at the hospital. The fee increases to fifty dollars per day after the first three days. In those cases where a dead body is brought into the morgue then the fee is a straight fifty dollars per day from day one. In terms of the other districts, the morgue fee is a standard twenty five dollars per day across the board.

The site covers the following video game platforms: Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Vita, Apple iPad, PC, Android tablets, the Nintendo 3DS, Wii and Wii U Through having all of this, they provide a place for video gamers to discuss, get informed and meet other people interested in video games. N00bPwners specializes on video game music and how young talented people can start a career in the video gaming industry. When the team at N00bPwners first started, they did not have it easy. The team was still small and a lot of hard work was needed to get the site to where it is today. The result they got from all this hard work is something that they are proud of. “It feels like we have accomplished something great,” 14 year old Brian said The Brain of 14 Year Old Brian Schweigler when asked about his thoughts on the site. From the way he explained, it sounds as if they were a bit skeptical at the start of N00bPwners. Their fears seemed to be illogical as they saw the site’s successful launch on the Brian Schweigler, 14, At Work 29th February, 2012. As of today, the team of writers for N00bPwners consists of ten international professionals. These writers focus on news in the world of video games, but also on creating their own content. Their content includes: reviews, analysis, “Guide to Pwning” news, Top 10, informative articles and speculation. Today, just two month after the launch, the site went from 250 Monday: Draft Beer $3.00 Tuesday: Local Rum $3.00 Wednesday: Panty Ripper $3.95 Thursday: Pia Colada $9.95 Friday: Micheladas $4.00 Mexican & Belizean Menu The Home Of MARGARITAS SPECIALSMondays To Fridays: Regular Margaritas: $6.95 Straberry Margaritas: $7.95 Blue Margaritas: $8.95 HAPPY HOUR Monday thru Friday 5 to 7 P.M entries to over 2,900 entries and articles from the world of video games. On top of this, N00b Pwners also has hundreds of video game music sheets from over 100 games for Piano, Violin, Flute, and Guitar. As the only video game forum for Central America, one major focus of N00b Pwners is education and careers in the video game industry. The booming industry offers a wide array of job possibilities around the world. No matter if in Belize or Australia, jobs can be found anywhere, if the applicant has the right education. For this reason, N00b Pwners provides also back ground information on where to get educated in video game programming, designing, etc. 14 year Brain, has proven that with dedication and hard work you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. He is also encouraging teens and parents of teens to take a look at his site and open doors for themselves. The only way to find out if you have what it takes to run a site like Brian’s would be to get out there and try it.

Sure enough, when it lifted its tail, there was my wife’s golf ball.” “And?” asked the doctor. “ Well,” said John, “that’s when I lifted the cow’s tail, pointed, and yelled to the missus, ‘Hey, honey this one here looks like yours!’” John’s Black Eye Someone gave little Jane a little Tea Set as a gift.

The state has been the scene of a bloody battle for control of drug-trafficking routes between two of Mexico’s most powerful gangs the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel. “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth”Publisher: Nyani K.

It is good to see the STAR Newspaper back on the stands once again and to learn that the newspaper will remain in the August family. The STAR is the only newspaper dedicated to providing us with Cayo news and the articles are always comprehensive. From a dedicated reader, Mary Loan p.s. Does anyone know, or is there an investigator who can find out what happened to the river that once ran through Cristo Rey VillageIt’s Good To See The STAR BackDear Editor; Someone somewhere in the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of the Public Service or, if at allPlease For A Service Audit Of The Cayo Hospital possible, from one of those many civil society organizations needs to conduct or, at the very least, commission the conduct of an audit of the hospital in San Ignacio. A financial audit might be good, but what I am asking is for a service audit. I am certainly not one to complain but the “service” for want of a better word, at the hospital in San Ignacio Town, is woefully lacking. The person who coined that word “patient” as a means of identifying those seeking medical services must have surely had the people of our community in mind because, trust me, it takes a whole darn lot of patience to deal with those who are paid to serve us at the hospital in San Ignacio. The situation gets even worse when any member of the staff is having a snack. When they are eating it is like we the “patients” do not even exist. There is no need for me to go into further details. All I am asking is for a cursory audit, not a deep one, because the problems are right up there on the surface and all too obvious for anyone to miss. Yes an audit is needed but, more importantly, corrective action must be taken after the audit with a view to rectifying that attitude of none-service at the taxpaying community. Mrs. Pulido was on the path of improving the services but a crazy lady they said she is. Terisita S, San Ignacio Town

The police say that when asked if they had anything to declare, they both said no. Notwithstanding their declaration an “on the spot” search was conducted. The couple was instructed to accompany the police in every aspect of the search of the vehicle. The police alleged that just as they were moving to search the back of the car, the female approached Inspector Reyes and reportedly offered to pay him two thousand dollars to let them continue their merry way. Reyes reportedly ignored the offer and when the trunk was popped there, in clear view for all to see, stood a brown “Distribuidores De Saco El Quetzal” plastic sack, obviously too large to conceal in the trunk of a small car. The female instantly broke down and began crying. Police suspect that the brand of the plastic sack could very well indicate that the weed came from across the border in Guatemala where the word “Quetzal” (the name of Guatemala’s national bird) is a common brand name. The driver and the female companion were detained and escorted to the police station in San Ignacio where they were identified as Richard Smith, 32, Belizean Security Guard of #6744 Raccoon Street Extension being the other side of Central American Boulevard in Belize City, straight down from the biggest police station in the nation. The female was identified as Sandra Thompson, 27, Belizean residing in the St. Martin De Porres, Lake Independence area of Belize City. In addition to the marijuana, police also took possession of cash amounting to 1,707 Belize dollars being 831 dollars found in the driver’s possession along with 182 Belize dollars and 347 US dollars (694 Belize dollars) in the female’s possession. They were informed that the cash, under suspicion of being the proceeds of drug activities, would be kept as evidence in the case. In the absence of a scale to accurately weigh the weed, police escorted the couple and the weed to the San Ignacio Community Hospital where, in their presence, it was placed on the scale with the needle moving to a flat 33 pounds or 14,969 grams. Richard Smith and Sandra Thompson were jointly arrested and charged for drug trafficking. They appeared in court on Wednesday, May 2, where the single joint charge was read to them by Magistrate Linsbert Willis They both pled not guilty to the charge. Magistrate Willis informed that in matters of this nature he could not grant bail. Despite the pleas of the female and her mother for the granting of bail citing that she has a breast feeding infant at home, Magistrate Willis reiterated his inability to offer bail. He proceeded to remand both accused persons to prison until Monday, August 6, 2012. It was at this point that the female began to cry loudly in court to the point where she passed out and fell to the floor like a log. She was removed from the court and rushed to the community hospital in San Ignacio.NORTH Block No.23 and being Parcel No.1424.
