Belize is just begining to make it into the twenty first century only to be set on a path of lawlessness due to violence.stronger laws must be inforced HOW get rid of the police, lawyers,judges and the new prime minster they are all corruptible, replace them with new blood. Look out Belize the days of lawlessness is about to really get started.

Prime Minister, stop the corruption, clean up your police force and your so called government officials. Stop selling Belize to the americans. Stop the distruction of the mangrooves and the rain forest. The tourists do not come to Belize to see cow pasture, they come to see natural forests. Stop shooting the jaguar to protect the farmers cows.
People are starting to get sick, eating the unhealthy stuff coming in from the states.

The corruption start's in the Police Force, and trickle on down. What I don't understand, "is a small Country like Belize" with so much violence and yet the Top Brass feels like he is doing a good job or, is that a pissass job? I think his ass should be replace and stand trial for ignorance to society.

To the people of Belize, do you really feel that you got a true leader? If so, you should support him and call for an end to all the voilence. Now, to the Prime Minister,the Governor General,the Mayor,the Top Cop and anyone associated with the body of government, it is time for a change and if you can't get the job done, please step aside. There is no disgrace in doing so, that is actually showing love for your Country and open the door of oppertunity for a true leader that will face these problem head on. I live in Indianapolis Indiana and I can't remember the last time I headline was something positive. Let's be frank, the privious adminestration was notorous for mishandling and spending, now as a daily reader of the Belize news and other news, I know that Belize is getting a lot more attention world wide. So, why the hell you guys can't get a grip? I'll give you an idea, why don't you start with your previous Prime Minister and put him on trial for what he has done with the $10,000,000 donated to Belize for housing? send a message that the BS is over. I really feel sorry for the people that believe in the people that suppose to serve them, sometimes you got to take a step backward in order to take two steps forward. Remember that.

Media over explodes on this issue. Belize is not a violent country and its people are courteous, and well educated.
