As we told you Belize City police are bracing for retaliation. It’s no secret that Benjamin Hyde Senior is the father of reputed gang boss of Rocky Road Blood Gang. That same gang is feuding with the notorious George Street Gang. ASP Fitzroy Yearwood says the police department is preparing to advert any retaliatory action.
ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: “Knowing that his son is rival with the other gang that belongs to that area where he was shot I mean we have to pay that special attention because this of course could become very volatile and we have prepared ourselves for any type of retaliation that they might try to come with and we’re going hard after both gangs involved in that dispute. If you know the dynamics of that area it has a lot of little alleyways that you can travel through so what we would do now is provide patrols in also these alleyways. We have several ways that we can cover that by foot, by bicycle but if you see an increased presence in that area don’t be alarmed we’re just trying to keep the law abiding citizens in Belize safe.”
