CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED INTO DEATH OF #CANADIAN WHILE IN #BELIZE POLICE CUSTODY IN THE CAYO DISTRICT
On Sunday 27th January 2013 at approximately 6:30 am, San Ignacio Police checked Cell No.3 where detained person 35 year old Canadian Jeffrey Donald FURGALA was seen in the Cell lying face up and when called he was unresponsive. A physical check was made on his person when Police noticed that he had some blood in his nose and was apparently unconscious. As a result, he was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital for medical treatment. He was later transported to the KHMH on 27th January 2013 where at 11:00 am he was in a critical condition and was to undergo surgery. FURGALA was pronounced dead at 11:15 pm on January 29.
Initial investigation indicates that FURGALA was detained on Saturday 26th January 2013 at 10:12pm in the Savannah Area San Ignacio Town, apparently under the heavy influence of alcohol and since he was unable to give an address where he resides he was kept in custody for his own safety. However, witnesses in the other cell blocks indicate that on Sunday 27th January 2013, sometime around 01:00 am they heard a loud sound which sounded like someone falling and thereafter a loud snoring coming from Cell No.3 which was where Jeffery Donald FURGALA was detained.
The Commissioner of Police has since launched a criminal and internal investigation into this incident as of Sunday January 27 to be conducted by members of the Criminal Investigation Branch and Professional Standards Branch respectively.

Peoples United Party (PUP) Cayo Central Chairman Steven Valencia was just killed in a home invasion at his home on La Loma Luz Blvd in Santa Elena, #Belize.
Police suspect that access was gained through a back door which was found broken. All they took was the $7 he had in his pocket, said his 6 year old daughter who witnessed the incident.
Does being a man and having honor means killing an innocent person? I want to believe that human life means something in Belize. Where is the highest values of integrity, caring, compassion, social justice, truth, personal peace and harmony gone, and what kind of depraved mind will kill a man in front of his 6 year old daughter?!
As a nation, we have lost all respect and regard for human life, and until our values are reversed in that respect, we can expect more horrendous tragedies as was witnessed in Santa Elena this morning. We have created in the last 30 years a culture based on our idolization and emulation of much of what's produced in North America. Materialism and lack of early parental supervision is a constant contributing factor to our lost moral soul as a nation. Need I say more?
My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of Mr. Steven Valencia.

Since the start of the year, at least ten people have been murdered in #Belize City including 22-year-old Feeshia Felix, who was shot while she slept at her home over the weekend of Jan 5, 2013.
Nothing will change unless Belizeans stop praying and get off their butts and do something about the crime situation.
Remember, God helps those who help themselves.

He came to Belize as a cruise tourist. But John Webster, 19, from Tampa, Florida, departed #Belize a drug convict. Webster was busted on Wednesday afternoon with marijuana and a pipe used for smoking drugs as he was about to board a ferry back to his cruise ship in the Belize City Harbor.
Acting upon information, a tourism police officer conducted a search of Webster’s person and found 8 grams of Cannabis in his front pants pocket. In his other front pocket, the police found a bamboo pipe used for smoking drugs. When he appeared in the Magistrate’s Court on Thursday morning, Webster pled guilty to the crime of possession of a drug pipe and controlled drugs. Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer fined Webster $1,600 which was paid and he was free to go. But Webster did not make it back to the Norwegian cruise ship “Dawn” in time to continue his journey to Mexico. He instead flew back to Florida. Before the fine was imposed, Webster said he was sorry and apologized for disgracing Belize....By Patrick Jones
And in response, I say: What about decriminalizing personal weed and getting rid of #Belize's "No Homosexuals" immigration law!?!? Its simple, if Belize is so worried about tourism dollars.
