What happened to Mr. Alcaron? Is there a chronic police abuse situation on the island?

there is a chronic headache on the island called the sunset view disco and hotel. it should be closed down or burnt to the ground. it is a festering rat hole that is responsible for 95% of the problems of the island. get rid of it and there goes the islands headache in one swoop.

I heard that the police were going to clean up the island. Are they going to shut down that cesspool of a disco? What were the results of the shooting investigation? We are planning to visit soon, and would like to know what is going on before we come down, otherwise we may want to visit another place until we know.

One reminder guys! What you are talking about is for the rest of the world to read. I think you should make it known that since the new officers have been on the island for the past five months crime has fallen significantly yet we do not hear praises over this. The cops get one black eye and the whole island goes crazy. Only in Caye Caulker!

Good point, well taken. Not to alarm anyone, just want to know. I for one am glad to hear that the officers are helping to get the crime in check. It is such a beautiful laid back island and I hope it stays that way.

I have met the sargent on the island and from what we talked about,and what i have seen, his dept. has done more in the last few months than what was done in years before he was there.

Crime needs to be put in perspective. A lot of people think that Bz City is the pits....and it is if you go into the wrong neighborhoods. No matter where you go in the world, you need to be aware of what's around you.

FWIW---travel smart and keep your head up/be aware and run away if there is a problem...common sense?

For those out there not very familiar with Caye Caulker - this is a very low crime place. That is the point that some might miss. A real crime here is big news. We have petty theft and that is about it until the disco was built by bad guys from the city.Now we have a violent crime among their group every few years.

I have visited caye caulker at least a dozen times and have always felt plenty safe. The news story I read about the police shooting was alarming and I was only curious as to the investigation results. I have never been to that disco. It does not sound like someplace I would want to go or go near either.

There is no need to legalize drugs in Belize. However, getting the US DEA out of the country would be a good idea. They are the biggest drug dealers in the world next to the CIA. Does not any one remember Oliver North or does every body have Reganosous and cannot remember any thing bad.

With nuff love and respect we are talking about a human being none the less... Pony had just finished 4 months of tour guide training and was to receive his certificate to better his life and for his family. He was a fisherman as well as worked security for the disco...he did work an honest living unlike many other undesireables on the island. He left behind 9 children and 5 step children who no longer have a father to help raise them. It was a senseless murder and I don't believe we needed to set an example this way. The officer had a history of police brutality and was in an abusive relationship with his wife. He has yet to be charged with this cruel murder. He went to the staion to bail a friend out which he was kinown to do all over the country. He was a very good man for the most part and was always there to make the peace as first and primary with no violence. I will miss him very much. I understand our need to clean up the island and am for it 100% for everyones benefit but aren't there more humane ways to do it? Yes there are alot of deadbeat drug dealers back there but also throughout Belize. If it was so bad back there shouldn't our local police or village council contact the owner first to try to rectify the problem before it had to result in this unnecessary loss of life? It is our job as citizens to not encourage these people to frequent our establishments and report them to the police. This is a first in Belize and all the nation should be concerned. We want it to be a safe destination for our tourists and I belive it is... this is an isolated incident and we pray for a justful outcome Peace Maralyn

Well said Maralyn. I'm still awaiting word on the results of the "investigation". I am all for cleaning up the island in fashion which is acceptable to the local citizenry. I think we are all in trouble when police officers are sanctioned to act like thugs.
