By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize Defence Force is at a loss as to why Private Raheem Williams, who is charged for the brutal April 1 murder of Estevan Baeza, behaved in such a violent manner.

Today, Deputy Commander of the BDF Lieutenant Colonel Brandon Garcia, said that Williams, like every other member of the force, passed through rigorous screening before joining the force and that such violence was out of order for him.

“Private Williams went through a thorough vetting before joining our ranks,” Garcia said. “Private Williams hadn’t exhibited any violent tendencies until now.”

Garcia says that the force carries a zero-tolerance policy for any brutality against civilians, so Williams was quickly delivered to authorities, but was given the opportunity to speak to a counselor to receive psychological support before police detained him. Despite the incident, Garcia says that Williams’s mental well being is still a concern for the BDF.

“Whatever was discussed with the counselor at the time wasn’t disclosed to us…But at some point, members from the BDF will still have to go to the prison to visit him there and to make sure that he is okay,” Garcia added.

He also noted that studies are being conducted with regard to the mental health of soldiers within the BDF, and that Williams’s case emphasizes the need for such studies to be done.
