Meanwhile here in Belize it is more Chicago 1922. Four murders in the city over the weekend. Three on civilians as revenge on the State for the street strip searching of the whole funeral procession of a murdered gang member by the Gang Suppression Unit.
Monday, the Prime Minister announces detention without trial (90 days) for gang association. He reminded us that the death penalty is still on the books (Belize left the Privy Council and joined the Carribean Supreme Court last year, so no chance of commutations of death penalties on appeal to the UK).
War in the city – and of the 20 British Army hand grenades that were stolen, 17 are still out there.
