I hope this finds you safe. We know the injustice you are facing because as you know we too senseless suffered injustice in Belize. Accused of “feeding children to the crocs,” as I read you have been too, a whole Mayan village stormed our property, looted, and burnt everything we owned to the ground while the police, who knew they were headed to our property, stood back and did nothing. We have footage of them on our property and yet to date the government of Belize has refused to press charges on anyone. We lost over 1 million BZD in property.
We wish to thank you for all your support in donating your boats for croc rescues and we pray for Eddie’s release. You know, he had a rescued crocodile named after him because he got it so quickly to the mainland during the rescue. Unfortunately, “Fast Eddie” was killed during the riot and arson when the armed villagers stormed our property they also killed 14 other animals in their pens, some just babies. We still receive death threats by phone and police trace the call but arrest no one.
We too, like you, stay because this is our home; but I do know many others that have fled this country for their life and left everything behind.
Stay safe and GOD Bless,
Cherie & Vince Rose
Three of my friends are still being held in prison on trumped up charges. They are:
They were charged and have been imprisoned because three legally licensed firearms were found in the incorrect rooms on my property (stretching the law to the extreme). I would ask you to please email the following and demand their release:

John . . Do Not trust the BTB or the Minister of Tourism. They are a den of snakes.

What do white people expect? For thousands of years we’ve been trying to “educate” & “civilize” brown people. Guess what? Its failed.
No matter what part of the world, no matter what the resources or aid spent – its failed. 100 mud races learning english & acting civilized is nothing when a million cant or dont. Screw Belize – I wont spend a penny there. In fact screw all mud countries – I’ll spend my money & time in a place that values civilization.
Wouldnt it be great if all the white tax payers put their money towards white causes? Wow! Instead of trying to ridiculously lift the mud races to intelligent status – invest in your progeny. Let the heathens perish & the civilized carry the torch.
Oh wait….let me guess the lilly liberal responses I’ll get to this. Racist, hater, ignorant, blah blah…wake up stupid. The only ignorant one here is you for beleiving in a failed policy that has never worked & will never work. While Negroes, Hispanics, Asians, & Arabs all work feverishly to preserve themselves – you do nothing for your own people. You are the stupid one. Self preservation is a natural psychological response. To deny that or insist by law whites care for everyone else except themselves is unatural & heinous. Look to the Jewish owned media & banks for brainwashing you – dont blame me for trying to snap you out of the stupor.

There are thousands of them. They provide 90% of the domestic food production. There is one of me.

John, how have the Mennonites in Belize been able to live peacefully for decades yet you seem to have so many problems there?

Today I picked up a copy of “The Secret of the Yamas”. I started reading it, and decided to find out more about John McAfee, this cool guy who wrote this wonderful little book. I’m truly sorry for all the difficulties going on around you and hope you are able to sort this out with the help of a good attorney. Be safe, my friend. Remember, Yamas. And thank you for writing this wonderful book.

Any particular reason the Belizean flag is upside down?

Why not embed the youtube video as you’ve been doing in the past? Helps when you’ve already have enough tabs open.

In 2008 I have the “unique” opportunity to visit and live for a while in Belize. My luck was I chose Belmopan, the capital. I met same good people there, really concerned about what happens to their country. I traveled everywhere. The cayes, the countryside, and the old capital Belize City. When I came back my friends used to ask me about the country I had traveled. My answer: Belize is not for “beginners”. It´s, at least, a “weird” place. It is in central america, but its a blend of a caribbean island. Its a different melting pot. The way they manage the country, the police, many things are near the absurd, unimaginable for foreigner. Even for me, a brazilian guy. Many things John has said I can easily understand.
John, if you are really innocent, I thing what happend to your former neighbor will appear someway. But first you’ll passing through this belizean ordeal.

No offense but I haven’t seen sympathy for most living things including humans in the cultures of Belize. Absolute lack of education, lack of empathy, lack of respect & lack of accountability for ones actions.
November 26, 2012 at 7:00 pm
More than anything people who are considering living in or visiting Belize need to know what they will be dealing with. This blog is providing a public service and a wakeup call to anyone considering Belize. Who else would tell you what is really going on there?
November 26, 2012 at 6:41 pm
John, I just felt I needed to pass along my thoughts. Your unique perspective and failure to accept what the general public is spoon-fed is refreshingly awesome! I’m very intrigued and check back several times per day to see if you’ve updated. I wish you the best of luck and am rooting for your success in unearthing the corruption that has been taking place. In the meantime, keep this fantastic journey coming to the blog. When you are vindicated, I wish to share a celebratory beverage or cigar in your honor. Good Luck and stay safe! Tell Sam to stay feisty, it’ll keep you young sir! 🙂

After carefully reading the commentary on this blog and also reviewing the facts of the Belize government’s budget, I am inclined to agree with people who think it is wise to cut off aid to Belize. However, the current budget this coming year for Belize is somewhere close to 400 million dollars. 400k or one million less is not going to kill them. If folks who have read this blog and seen all of the evidence of corruption in Belize want to help matters, I think that hitting the tourism sector would be more advantageous. Less money into their coffers from Americans, Canadians, and Brits going on vacation would certainly wake up a few people down there.
November 26, 2012 at 6:18 pm
I totally agree. The situation in Belize sounds intolerable. I will be contacting my representative to ask him to please see about cutting off all aid to Belize. that place sounds like Haiti in the making. Soon the GSU will be walking around with dark sunglasses and chopping off people’s arms. The US cannot continue to support these kinds of corrupt cesspools.
November 26, 2012 at 6:09 pm
Having experienced 3rd world countries, one thing they all share in common is no real willingness to prevent crime. The police are used to suppress the people, so that the corrupt officials can keep their jobs and never have to actually work for a living. Crime is allowed to continue (or even subtly encouraged) as it keeps the common people living in fear, disorganized, and unable to rise against the corrupt politicians.
November 26, 2012 at 5:48 pm
When you write to the people in Belize via the email addressee John has provided, I suggest you mention the aid Belize is receiving from the United States. One poster has put this amount at $400K a year with a request for $1 Million in 2013.
I resent having my tax dollars going to a country that oppresses US and British citizens, not counting it’s own people. It’s obvious this money isn’t going to help the people of Belize but into the pockets of corrupt officials.
Please mention this when you write, and contact your US representatives to get this aid stopped.
The Belize officials are biting the hands that feed than. Time to stop this now.

As someone who has lived in Belize and seen firsthand the kind of craziness that goes on there, I was not surprised when the crocodile incident came up. It is telling that neither the police nor the local villagers are able to be portrayed in a good light in this incident. While I must say that I have not found Belizeans in general to be completely malicious, I have seen that there is a staggering lack of education in the rural areas. This is directly a cause of the government resources being pilfered at every level by public officials and employees. The teacher on the ground might wish to do her job, but her rural classroom will be falling apart, ill equipped, and possibly with leaky roof and not enough chairs and desks for the children. And in Belize, public education is free but books and uniforms for schools are not. Therefore you get a significant number of schoolkids whose parents cannot even afford the schoolbooks and whose children make do with a very substandard education.So you will also find that in local villages many people believe in witchcraft and sorcery and other antiquated elements of ignorance. In the area that the crocodile sanctuary was located, several nearby incidents of demonic possession were said to have taken place in recent years leading up to the time of this occurrence, and a priest was even summoned from Guatemala to give an exorcism to one of the schoolchildren supposedly possessed by demons. This sets up the scene for the crocodile incident quite well for readers who are unaware of the background details. It also should be noted for readers not familiar with Belize, that crocodiles are not considered worth saving or preserving there (from a local perspective). Most Belizeans are deathly afraid of crocodiles and want nothing to do with them. The whole time I lived there, I never met a single person express a desire to preserve crocodiles That is a cultural manifestation of what may, at one time, have been a very healthy survival mechanism. Therefore the average Belizean seems to have little sympathy for crocodiles and in a village filled with beliefs in sorcery and witchcraft and demonic possession, one can only imagine how small of an incident could create a major problem.
I do not blame the victims in this ordeal, who are obviously terribly affected by the whole affair, but I must say that the culture of Belize is a bit twisted and requires a lot of background information to be understood. The corruption on every level there is merely a symptom of a very undereducated populace without any decent alternatives being given to them.

It’s sad to see that no real investigation of any kind is under way to determine Mr. Faul’s murderer..
Sadly something tells me they will have all they need once and IF they get their hands on you..
Stay safe John!
