Commissioner of Police condemns bullying; says police have youths in custody

Posted: Thursday, June 13, 2024. 4:54 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, a viral video depicting some young boys bullying another young boy was shared on social media.

Belizeans have expressed outrage following the incident and Commissioner of Police Chester Williams has since informed that the young men are in police custody.

“ Please note that the police [are] addressing this situation. An official report had been lodged with the police and the boys doing the bullying are in custody. It’s very disheartening to see how these young boys could have opted to bully such a quiet and humble person. It is more disheartening to have seen how the others instigated this bullish act to occur,” the Commissioner said.

However, ComPol Williams also urged parents to be more vigilant with their children and youths.

“While the police [are] addressing this matter, it is important for parents to pay more attention to what their children are doing. This is how a gang group starts. The police will be working with the parents, students and schools to address this issue, to ensure the young man do not become a criminal gang group, to see what can be done to allow them to continue their education while, at the same time be punished for what they did, that there is an amicable resolution to this issue that will take into account the best interest of all parties and to ensure there is no reoccurrence of such action towards no other child,” he added.

ComPol Williams says that while we protect our children from adults who may wish to harm or use them to carry out criminal activities, we must also protect them from being hurt or bullied by their peers.

Every child must know that bullying is a crime and shall be treated as such. Together let’s unite to end bullying in our schools, homes, and streets.
