It was shortly after 10 o’clock on the night of Friday October 12, 2012, when Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Amin “Sheriff” August was recreating with friends at a bar in his home village of Esperanza when three armed robbers stormed into the bar with intent to pull off a robbery. The robbers described as one being of dark complexion armed with a 9 mm pistol and the other two being of lighter complexion, one of whom was armed with a machete and the other with a knife. They were all dressed in dark clothing with cloth wrapped around their faces in the form of masks. Initial investigation revealed that the three robbers stormed into E’s Cool Spot/Western Poultry Bar which is attached to the grocery store. The man with the gun allegedly fired a single shot inside the place ordering everyone inside the establishment to spread out on the floor. The man with the knife proceeded to hold up the 17 year old male shop attendant and ordered him to walk behind the counter and to hand up the money. The knife man was distracted when ASP August refused the gunman’s order to take to the floor resulting in a struggle between August and the gunman. Being a firearm expert himself, in the struggle August managed to press the magazine release from the pistol causing the magazine to fall to the floor but with a single bullet remaining in the chamber. By this time the attention of all three robbers was turned to August as the gunman call for the others to assist him. The one with the knife came with a stabbing motion at August prompting him to loose his hold of the gun. The gunman reportedly took a few steps backwards, pointed the gun to August’s mid section, and squeezed the trigger firing off the single bullet that was left in the chamber. Fortunately for the policeman, the bullet hit the buckle of the belt he was wearing resulting with mere fragments of the shot hitting August in the abdomen. The gunman and the machete man quickly fled the scene. SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo, Wednesday, October 17, 2012: Convicted burglar Harvey Trapp Jr. was today sentenced to five years in jail after he was found guilty of burglarizing the home of Ramon “Monchies” Vargas in March 2012. Six and a half months ago, on March 31, Belizean teacher, Ramon Vargas 43, reported that his house, located in the Hillview area of Santa Elena Town, was burglarized and that the thief made off with over 11 thousand dollars in electronic items, jewellery and cash. In the report to the police Vargas informed that he secured and left his house at around 6 o’clock that Saturday morning and proceeded to No. 151 SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2008 Price $1.00 No. 151 SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2008 Price $1.00 No. 331 Sunday, October 21, 2012 Price $1.00 STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*S TAR* *STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR8*8TAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR* STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR

He is currently recovering at the hospital in Belmopan. Police were summoned to the scene where, apart from a badly battered knifeman, they recovered a mega brand 9mm magazine containing five live 9mm bullets (three luger brand and the other two SMB brand). The knifeman was transported to the police station in San Ignacio where he was identified as Jake Anthony Cadle, 23, Belizean laborer of #2 Tulip Street, San Ignacio. Then a bird began to sing in the process of expanding the investigation. Three days later, on Monday, October 22, police caught up with Alvaro Aldana 19, Belizean unemployed of Dalia St, San Ignacio, as he was relaxing inside a house also in San Ignacio. Aldana is no stranger to the police. He is classified as a repeat offender who has been at it for many years previously hiding under the law that protects minors from public disclosure. He is now of age and is graduated into the major crime league. The accused Jake Anthony Cadle and Alvaro Aldana appeared on Tuesday, October 16 in the San Ignacio Town courtroom of magistrate Narda Morgan where they pled not guilty to the charge. In concurring with the prosecutor’s request for the denial of bail, magistrate Morgan proceeded to remand them both to jail while adjourning the matter until Thursday, December 13, 2012. As the investigation continues, police are looking for one Mark Anthony “Fifty Cents” Conorque of a Belmopan address whom they believe can assist in the investigation. ASP Amin “Sheriff” August, Recuperating At The Western Regional HospitalBY: Rolando Cocom Since the recent murders in the Twin Towns, people in the Cayo District have become increasingly vocal about their concerns to reduce, and if possible end, the hideous crimes afflicting our society. I extend my sincerest sympathies to all Belizeans who have had to experience criminal activity, especially to the families who have lost their loved ones, particularly the Martinez and Lowe families. No number of demonstrations, no whipping of criminals, no person hanged, will ever be able to heal the void left in the lives of those who have lost loved ones. The reason for standing up against crime is really to make sure that more families do not experience the hurt, frustration, suffering, and emptiness associated therewith. Belizeans are on the move advocating for change. This does not constitute a movement. It is an early stage. It can either become something episodic and die off OR mature and become effective in its cause. I hope it becomes the latter; and for this reason I shall refer to it as a Movement. In this entry, I address concerns against the critics; highlight points left unmentioned in the media and project the challenges and opportunities for a reformist movement to drastically decrease crime. The Movement The demonstration on Thursday (Oct 11) had a massive turn out. The participation of tertiary level students added to the great turn out. Some media have stated that it was thousands of people. However, a more accurate figure, in my opinion, was that published by the STAR Newspaper which estimated the gathering at around 1,500 persons.

Tel: +501-222-4757 Website: www .bws.bz Contact: corporate.communications@bwsl.com.bz PUBLIC NOTICE BWS submits r equest for modification of Licensed Service Ar easBelize City, Belize. October 16, 2012: On October 16, 2012, Belize Water Services Limited (BWS) submitted a request for modification of its licensed service areas to the national regulator, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) for their review. This submission is in accordance with the sections 15 and 19 of the Water Industry Act. The request is based on completed expansions and/or the requirements of projects funded by the Govern-ment of Belize. BWS is hereby requesting modifications to the company’s Licensed Service Areas as specified below: Proposed Modifications Cor ozal District Service Ar eas: To include: Chan Chen, Paraiso and San Joaquin Villages To remove: Progresso Village. Cayo District Service Ar eas: To replace: Belmopan City and suburbs of Salvapan, San Martin and Las Flores. with: Belmopan City and all its suburbs To include: Cotton Tree, St. Matthews and Frank’s Eddy Villages and along the George Price Highway from Mile 36 to Belmopan. To remove: The new satellite town in La Democracia. Belize District Service Ar eas: To replace: San Pedro Town including San Pablo, San Pedrito, San Juan, Boca del Rio, Sal Telmo, Mosquito Coast and Escalante Areas with: Ambergris Caye To include: Caye Caulker and Communities along the George Price Highway from Belize City to Mile 21, including Western Pines, West Lake, Mile 8, and Hattieville. T oledo District Service Ar eas: To include: Eldridge and Forest Home Villages. JustificationFor Amendments/Inclusions: The Government of Belize, with BWS as Executing Agency, has entered into various loan agreements to fund expansion of water services to a number of these areas and the Government of Belize has entered into agreements with Belize Water Services to provide potable water to certain other areas which have experienced water supply problems over the last few years. Furthermore, BWS has also continued expansion of services within its licensed service areas to reach to areas of continuing development. For Removals: Belize Water Services Limited is not the supplier of water or sewer services to the areas of (a) Progresso Village and (b) “The new satellite town in La Democracia” (i.e. Mahogany Heights). Comments: Members of the public are asked to kindly submit their comments on this request to the Public Utilities Commission, 41 Gabourel Lane, Belize City or via email to: info@puc.bz or telephone: 223-4938BWS – Delivering Water and More …For more information regarding this or any other BWS Release, please contact: Corporate Communications at Tel: 222-4757 Ext. 317 or 281 or via e-mail at corporate.communicatons@bwsl.com.bz If it is true that our Government is planning to compensate the family of the Guatemalan citizen who unlawfully entered our country to extract our natural resources, I am totally against such proposition. According to the information that was in the press, not only did he try to come into the country but he was also armed with a weapon to try and shoot one of our BDF soldiers. As a former member of the Belize Police Force and REACTION TO GUATEMALAN WHO WAS SHOTBY: Wellington C. Ramos the United States Army, if I was in that soldier's position I would have acted the same way without any reservation or hesitation. The soldier then asked him to drop his weapon and he refused by continuing to advance towards him which led to the soldier shooting him to defend himself. Compensating any family will send a bad message to the BDF soldiers and the Guatemalan citizens. Our soldiers will come to the conclusion that our Government is not supporting them in carrying out their duties in defending our country. For those Guatemalan citizens who still believe that Belize belongs to them and they can cross the border and come in and out of Belize at will, they will continue to engage in this behavior with the intent of receiving more compensations. Our Government must stick to one story and tell Guatemala that if their citizens continue to cross our border at will, they risk suffering the same faith like the person who was shot and killed. The Guatemalan government need to make more efforts to stop their citizens from coming into Belize but they will not because they support those people who continue to tresspass in Belizean territory to steal our natural resources and squat on our lands. No Belizean citizen can ever go into Guatemalan territory to attempt to do the same things the Guatemalan citizens have been doing on Belizean soil for generations now because they would be shot and killed and be buried on the spot. Most Belizeans know this to be a fact and would not even attempt to take that chance with their lives. My Grandmother was born in Livingston Guatemala and like most Garifuna, Maya, Mestizos and other Belizeans, we all have families in that country and have nothing against the people and country but for them to continue taking advantage of our country, we should not sit down idly by and cry like little kids. I am beginning to notice, that from the time Belize and Guatemala agreed to take the Territorial Dispute to the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.), the incidents at the borders have gotten worst. Maybe, there are people in Guatemala paying these people to carry out these unlawful acts so that Belize and Guatemala can continue to have tensions at the border, which could eventually lead to the cancellation of all talks and future negotiations towards a lasting settlement between these two countries. The countries of Belize and Guatemala should look into this possibility and have their intelligence organizations investigate it.

I wish to welcome the Hon. Minister and her team to Belize. My understanding is that the programme of events included a fly over in a helicopter along the Belize/Guatemala border accompanied by the Vice Minister of Guatemala and CEO in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. An National Security Minister Hon. John Saldivar official visit to the border (adjacency zone) is also scheduled in the programme of events. I also note that Minister Ablonczy is the head of the Consular programme for the Canadian Government and as such she will be visiting the Mennonite Community in Spanish Lookout. I am hopeful that your stay in Belize will help to further the excellent bilateral relation that both our Governments’ shared since the establishment of diplomatic relations in November, 1981. It is pleasing to note that the foundation is well on its way to be set for integrated planning in citizen security issues. Following the Donor Coordination Group meeting on Citizen Security with key CEO of the Government, on the 23 August, 2012; where Belize’s National Strategic Plans were discussed, a commitment was made for the development of a road map which will chart the path for a more synchronized approach to the wider donor contribution effort. We have also been actively engaging our friendly Governments; dialogue with the British, Canadians, Mexicans and the US Governments and others continue to result in major capacity building efforts. In April 2012, through the AntiCrime Capacity Building Programme, Canada donated this Integrated Ballistic Identification System, TRAX — 3D, which is valued over $2 million; which is said to be the most advanced ballistic imaging solution in the world today. This will now significantly increase the ability of our law enforcement agencies to make ballistic matches across crime scenes and jurisdictions. We are hoping that in a very short time this equipment will assist in our investigating effort of the numerous crimes involving guns and the arrest of gun crime offenders. Hon.

Those of us who know how difficult it is to navigate through the red tape and bureaucracy for donor countries to provide this type of assistance, in such a short time frame, will understand how unprecedented this is. The Government of Belize and in particular the Ministry of National Security is extremely thankful to the Government of Canada for this most needed and expeditious contribution. You demonstrated that not only you are a true partner in the fight against National and transnational crime but you are serious about playing your part. Belize is partnering with a similar project being executed in Barbados. Barbados has agreed to share a server with Belize and Belize has agreed to meet the cost of maintenance of the sewer jointly with Barbados. Canada has also agreed to sponsor training for one individual at the Forensic lab in the area of Serology, which is the scientific study of blood serum and other body fluids. The training will be conducted in Canada for three months at a cost Increasing The Nation’s Forensic Capability Increasing The Nation’s Forensic Capability Increasing The Nation’s Forensic Capability Increasing The Nation’s Forensic Capability Increasing The Nation’s Forensic Capability Continued From Page 7 $18,000 Canadian Dollars. Moving forward, a recruit squad for the Police Department and one for the BDF will be added to their strength. The BDF and the BNCG will be strengthened to provide better security coverage along our borders and at sea. The 1(9 Unit is being fully utilized to support the crime fighting effort. The CIMS will be rolled out countrywide. Resource packages, similar to those given to Eastern Division will be extended to the Districts, especially Cayo and Stann Creek, in a proportionate manner. Mobile interdiction teams will be stood up. Legislation to limit the bail of repeat offenders and implement a sex offenders’ registry and monitoring system along with efforts to increase the rate of convictions of criminals will be pursued. Efforts will be made to strengthen the Police Prosecution branch and institute greater coordination between the Police and the Office of the Director of the Public Prosecution. We will ensure more effectiveness in the investigation and preparation of cases for prosecution and ensure, together with the Magistracy and Judiciary, the proper enforcement of the laws governing denial of bail in cases of sexual and other serious offences; also Procedure to deal disciplinary with corrupt officers in an expeditious manner will be pursued. Our Intelligence Architecture will be revamped into a Fusion Center that will host a new Counter Intelligence Unit, and the proposed National Crime and Violence Trends Observatory (which would endeavor to conduct more in-depth analysis and primary research projects on crime and violence trends across the country). The Fusion Center would also serve as the Government of Belize’s International Liaison with international and regional partners such as INTERPOL, the Regional Intelligence Fusion Centre (RIFC) in Trinidad & Tobago, Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. Finally, the Fusion Center will facilitate the I-Trace software and conduct tracing services for all weapons and ammunition recovered by any and all national security agencies. There is a whole lot we have planned on doing, but, In times of shrinking economies and limited resources it is a challenge for our Government to provide needed resources in the quantity and in all the areas we would like to. Therefore we must be strategic and real in our approach in addressing our many issues. We ask for patience as we seek to achieve these planned objects. We now have the most advance ballistic imaging solution added to our inventory; I want to ask the staff of the Forensic Service to please look after it well so that it will service us for a long time to come. We are depending on you to do so. In ending, I wish to thank the Government of Canada for their kind contribution. Also I wish to take this opportunity to join the Prime Minister of Belize, the Hon. Dean Barrow in offering my congratulations and thanks to the thousands of Belizeans from the Cayo District and across the country who participated in the San Ignacio/Santa Elena peaceful protest against crime on Thursday. Please be assured that the war on crime will not slacken but be heightened by increased human and material resource allocation. I thank you for the role you have played in this effort and for your attention.” STERLINGS $ MEATS D-BEST Contact Ismael Sansores at Cell: 6016025We also have apartments for Rent

The eight point petition sent to the Prime Minister on Monday (Oct 8) was signed by the ‘Solidarity Movement for Justice and Peace’ While this term was used to project the unification of various bodies involved, the said group is not organized. I am unaware of who is the president of the Solidarity Movement suggested in the Amandala (Oct 14 ). Many supporters were given opportunities to talk at the demonstration; yet, there was no real talk of unification as the Solidarity Movement. There is a need to establish a Committee which will have representatives from the various bodies of the neighbourhood watches, teacher’s union, and business community and so on. My suggestion is that the Purple Movement leaders take the initiative to develop such Committee, establish a clear vision, plan, execute, and develop means of sustainability. By the way, where is the NGO “Belizeans for Justice”? Not that I want Yolanda Shackron to push her PUP agenda in the movement but it’s rather strange. Ed Note: In response to your question “Belizeans for Justice is DEAD. It was injected with a lethal dose of the poison commonly known as “Political Interference” The Only Positive Suggestion At the Wednesday ‘Public Meeting’ with the Attorney General Hon. Wilfred Elrington in his response to a series of suggestions, complaints, and questions, the AG said that there was only one positive suggestion that he heard. That suggestion was to hold a telethon to raise monies for the establishment of an advance forensic lab. This understandably caused great discontent. After one and two attendants decided to leave, a group of youths at the back of the room also decided to march out, inciting others to “walk out”. Interestingly, the young lady who gave the “only positive suggestion” is the president of the Purple Movement, Carmita Lemus whose supporters were among the first to walk out. I have argued that this idea while noble should not be pursued. A better initiative is to raise funds for the movement to sustain itself. More than that, according to 7News, the AG has stated that the walk out did not happen: “the reporter who obviously had his own agenda there reported that the people left”. Patrick Jones has made this known on his Facebook page, and most people are bewildered and outraged by such a statement by the AG. Now, video footage does not lie, the people did walk out. It’s also on YouTube. ED Note: You inform that “supporters (of the Purple Movement) were among the first to walk out” because of the suggestion made by the President of the Purple Movement supported by the AG. Yet at the conclusion of the Thursday event the Purple Movement began the collection of funds for the same “forensic lab” with several of the very same people who walked out of the meeting among the first to pledge their money in support of a suggestion which only the previous day caused them to walk out of a meeting Revenge or Justice As to the request for capital punishment to be implemented immediately, the AG replied “But I can tell you, I can tell you that only the suggestion of hanging a person that is made publicly in Belize, any suggestion that you make, we get all kinds of pressure from the people who keep us surviving”. This caused an expected disapproval from the gatherers. I believe there are many benefits in human rights initiatives. However, capital punishment, particularly by hanging, is one of the cheapest shortterm means to create deterrence for the extreme violence in our society. Now, England, through the Privy Council, has blocked capital punishment in Belize and the Caribbean. Some hope was increased for the penalty to be allowed since the Privy Council was replaced by the Caribbean Court of Justice as our final court of appeal in 2007. However, with one recent case submitted by Jamaica, it appears that the death penalty will not be supported. Beyond that, as the AG says many international organizations will oppose. European powers tell us that it is uncivilized to carry out the death penalty. Paradoxically, these are the same powers who exploited land that were not theirs, enslave millions, colonized us to the point that they became today’s 1st World Countries and us the 3rd World. These are the same people who developed every possible law to keep indigenous and non-European peoples from being masters of their own destinies. Capital Punishment is a desperate attempt to bring justice in the society and to deter others from pursuing a life of crime. I am truly not a big fan of capital punishment but when I learnt that Belize’s prison system is the most humane amongst the countries of USA, Jamaica, Barbados, and St. Lucia, I realize that it is one of the reasons we have so many repeat offenders coming in and out of Hattieville (Gayle Report, 2010). On the day of the demonstration, I reasoned that it was absurd that most of us were hungry as we stood out there calling for justice while prisoners at Hattieville were enjoying their lunch. Shouldn’t the politicians and human rights group have supported the people with a meal or at least a snack? Now, criminal activity is a multifaceted problem and therefore requires a multi-layered plan of action to be effective. This means that present structures of political authority, education, economic planning, religion, and social institutions must be reformed. This should also be part of the goals behind the Purple Movement. DNA Lab and the T elethon While at the Meeting, one lady cautioned me that it would be better to establish the DNA Lab before carrying out capital punishment. In the US, there are a number of persons who have faced death innocently. Therefore, in Belize, there is a need to establish an advance forensics lab. The government has sent out a press release that it will do so. However, the Movement must push for this. The AG told attendants at the meeting that this will require one million dollars. Some people suggested selling ministers vehicles, decrease their salaries, and abandon the new bridge project in the Twin Towns, etc. Why not? The government can also start by incorporating forensic fields in the nation’s scholarship priority list. The listing should also include areas of research – history, sociology, psychology, criminology to increase the potential for Belizeans to become research based problem solvers. Cautions against Fundamentalism There is a danger in allowing Christian fundamentalists to be given too much voice in this movement for justice. The problem, for me, generally lies in the fact that they will be able to push their own agenda From Page 2People on the Move for Justice October 19, 2012 “The Cayo and Benque Viejo” Celebrating 108 Years of Townships Please Turn To Page 12

Also, for many fundamentalists, they generally believe that behind the criminal is the devil or some evil spirit. Behind the criminals, however, is a major fault in the system and social structure, in which the church-state system is both a participant and product of. Some of the remarks I heard at the demonstration were unquestionably fundamentalist, such as the FECTAB’s President Tom Greenwood persuading the people that their voice represent the voice of God and that the government should take heed. Also, members from Plus TV agitate for change but do so in a very zealous confrontational fundamentalist manner. I predict that in a few years, their members will be candidates at both municipal and general elections. It is a scary thing when people begin to believe that God’s is on their side to fight. But it is likewise honourable that they have decided to step outside the four walls of the church. Ignite the Peace Initiative The Ignite the Peace Initiative was collaborative effort between the student bodies of Galen University, Sacred Heart College Junior College and University of Belize. The UB students had the greatest turn out. About 5 buses filled with UB students participated. Galen and SHCJC each had less than a hundred students representing. The students, however, were not vocally active. They were mainly there in numbers. Most of them awaited the torch runners, and then proceeded to head on home after their arrival. Hope Amadi, president of the UB student Government, had to inform students that the buses would be departing about 30 minutes after the torch runners had arrived. Additionally, the speaker systems that were used were not effective and most of the people were hungry. There was no food to be purchased because People on the Move for Justice Continued From Page 11 of the shutdown. This is why the Movement needs to get funds, sustainability. High powered speakers were needed and food should have been made available. ED Note: Ha Ha Ha!!! Was it not the very same organizers of the event who called for the shut down of businesses? Thank goodness that the gas station people across from the Columbus Park and Hannah Restaurant did not fall victim to the ploy and in the process enjoyed one of the busiest business days in many, many years.” I am encouraged by the increase in number of students who turned out. Last year, the University of Belize through the Student Government had managed to cancel classes to carry out a peace march in the central streets of Belize City. Only one bus departed from Belmopan, which was more empty than full. The number of UB students who participated in Belize City was extremely low. We were joined by the St. John’s students. Students in Belize aren’t active. It’s sad, very sad. Ed Note: No movement of the people will ever succeed in Belize City. The drive has long ago been killed by a lethal dose the poison commonly known as “Political Interference”. Unfortunately that very same poison was busy hogging up the microphones while interfering in the “Movement of the Western People” last Thursday.” Some students say that nothing happens by marching; I say a march can foster unity and propel us to challenge the status quo. Most students take occasions like these for leisure. Oh, and their lack of participation is not because they are too serious academics not wanting to lose a day of class. Partisan Politics In the Gayle Report (2010), of 92 children of age 6-13, 51 (51%) knew precisely which political party their parents support. Some children even suggested that they already support their parent’s political party. These numbers increase as they get older. Belizeans are socialized to remain committed to their family’s political party affiliation. However, according to the Gayle Report, the shift from paternalistic blind eye voting rates is directly related to the level of literacy and education level in the population. In 2010, only 7400 persons were enrolled at the tertiary level (2010 Census). Therefore, we have a long way to go before this shift becomes widespread in Belize. Some people have said that the Movement is primarily made up of supporters of the People’s United Party (PUP). This view is particularly recurrent in the Wave’s Radio talk show, whose speakers believe that everyone else except themselves have a partisan agenda. The reality of the matter is that on the day of the demonstration Hon. Elivin Penner (UDP) pledged to be a member of the Purple Movement. Also, several UDP councillors of the Twin Towns have been active spokesperson and organizers of the cause. Yet, it cannot go unmentioned that PUP supporters will find their way speaking more often than others. This is because partisan politics is so influential in people’s behaviour. Known UDP supporters have a higher chance of being victimized if they speak out. Politicians will assume that they are UDP betrayers. More than that, the young people if they speak out, will be confronted by their families and peers who will warn them the dangers of victimization. Beyond that, the young people are yet to become conscious that they can be powerful agents of change. Young people rather go to parties and get high, failing to realize that so many of our brothers and sisters are falling to crime and that one of us could be next. My hope is that, this movement can begin to challenge the general Belizean psyche that we are not entitled to question our representatives. The people have the power; power to the people. The Purple Movement Committee, I am proposing, must establish rules about this. For example, if any member agitates for explicit UDP/ PUP interest, he/she should be renounced publicly from being part of the movement. And also prohibit certain type of activities such as the musical presentation by the Mendez duo at the demonstration. Overall I like the composition. But “was George Price for us Yes in God he trust” and those sort of phrases will give the PUP the upper hand. Let it be a movement for social reform. That song was good for the September celebrations. As much as possible, be bipartisan. If the movement will advocate for a particular party, let it do so for a new party comprised of revolutionary non-conformist youth. Interestingly, the Purple Movement has issued a press release affirming their bipartisan status: “We the Purple Movement will not accept any Political Party or Ex-affiliates into our Executive or Honourable Membership. We however will not undermine, but welcome political leaders or ex-affiliates to support the movement as “Customary members” who can freely contribute and participate in our activities as citizens in our community, but not as political leaders or as a party affiliate.” Attack the System Attack the system! Attack the System! – Both political parties have allowed the system to remain relatively intact. Our high crime rate is the result of both Red and Blue. If you are going to attack the Hon. Prime Minister of Belize Dean Borrow please remind Hon. Francis Fonseca and Hon. Said Musa and fellow companions that their actions led us to where we are. Don’t be fooled. Don’t run their campaigns for them. Let me give to example of our faulty system. In education, 1/3 of our children are excluded from primary school; 60% are excluded from the secondary level; 2008 data stated that there is a 4% tertiary enrolment which gives Belize which is some of the worse rates in Central America and the Caribbean (Gayle 2010, p. 110-114). The 2010 Census informed us that only 2.4% of the population were enrolled at the tertiary level. These are among other factors such as underpayment for teachers, overcrowded classrooms, lack of qualified teachers, complicated management of schools, and the colonial education structure which are interrelated issues which contribute to criminal activity. Similar attacks can be made to the Political Structure, Police Department, Health and Social Services and so on. Criminals must be laughing when they see peace-marches, shut downs, and protests. They may even become more agitated as evident in recent reports. But we are not out to scare the criminals. These initiatives then must be directed against the system. Politicians who are the principal policy makers must be advised and pressured to make the necessary reforms to create a more inclusive and stable society. Voice your Concerns and Challenge the System. Belizeans, Belizeans, my dear Belizeans, think, think, think, and then act. Oh yes, act, we have got to act, realize that our realities depends on our inactions and ACTIONS. It’s All About The Money Mr. Pedro Espat lives alone in the Kings Park Area of Belize City with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died. Mr. Espat went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, me dog is dead. Could you say a mass for the poor creature?" Father Patrick replied, "I'm afraid not; we do not have services for animals in this church. But there are some Baptists down there on Gabourel Lane. There is no telling what they would do. Maybe they'll do something for the creature." "I'll check with them right away Father” responded Mr Espat. “Since you are in the business of saying mass’” continued Mr. Esapt “do you think $10,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?" Father Patrick exclaimed, "Sweet Mary, Holy Mother of Jesus! Why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic?”

About two hours later, at around 8 o’clock, he instructed his worker, Bernardo Matute to return to his house to pick up other merchandize to be sold at the market. Upon arriving at the house in Hillview, Matute reportedly observed that it was broken into. He immediately conveyed the information, via telephone, to Vargas who rushed to the scene where he encountered the screened double door open and the panel of the front door removed with the door slightly open. Vargas entered the house, a brown bungalow 24 by 48 feet cement structure, where he observed that several items were missing from inside his house including US dollars in various denominations valued at $2,500, 800 Belize dollars in cash, an Apple Mac Book brand computer valued at $2,300, a black Sony Vio brand laptop computer valued also at $2,300, a Compaq brand laptop computer valued at $1,800, a digital camera valued at $500, an assortment of gold and silver jewellery valued at $800; a pair of gold plated earrings with the initials “SS” valued at $60 all for a total value of 11 thousand and 60 dollars. After reviewing all four surveillance cameras, Vargas noted that one of them, with the front of the house in view, captured the image of a Creole decent, slim built, male person with long hair tied in a pony tail, prying off the panel of the front door with a crow bar. A second camera, located inside the house, revealed the image of the same male person taking possession of Vargas’ property. Upon making the report to the police, Vargas provided the video footage to assist in the investigation. The intruder was identified as Harvey Trapp a resident of the area. An instant search began for Trapp. The search ended 17 days later when, on Tuesday, April 17, a team of policemen, including the then Commanding Officer, Alvan Gentle on patrol on the George Price Highway in the police vehicle, spotted the suspect standing at the junction of the highway and the road leading into Hillview. The suspect was instantly detained and transported to the police station in San Ignacio where he was positively identified as Harvey Trapp 20, Belizean laborer of a Lipton Street address in Hillview. He reportedly gave a cautioned statement, witnessed by a Justice of the Peace, in which he allegedly admitted to committing the crime. Trapp was consequently arrested and formally charged for burglary. He appeared in court on Wednesday, April 18 where the charge was read to him by Magistrate Linsbert Willis The accused pled guilty to the charge while alleging that he gave the cautioned statement under duress. The initial guilty plea was therefore set aside. The accused was consequently offered and met bail in the sum of five thousand dollars and ordered to return to court on Wednesday, July 18, 2012. The case ended today, Wednesday, October 17, in the San Ignacio courtroom of magistrate Narda Morgan where the accused, unrepresented by an attorney, was found guilty of burglary. Prior to passing sentence, magistrate Morgan informed of the taking into consideration that he is a first time convict and, as such, sentenced him to a big five years in jail.
