John McAffee, founder of the infamous
antivirus, was arrested during a raid on his compound in Belize. This is one of those situations were everything is so terribly sketchy that even if nothing illegal is discovered, you know something criminal is going down. The GSU (Gang Suppression Unit), B.D.F. (Belize Defence Force) and the B-SAG (Belize Special Assignments Group, an arm of the police) came into the property of the Belize Ecological Foundation Ltd (McAffee’s front company) looking for drugs and weapons.
How they got wise to the operation or how they got a warrant, I don’t know, but when they showed up to the compound, which consists of 9 houses, some freight containers, a warehouse, a shack, and a lab, they were met with a perimeter fence, two guard posts occupied by armed guards, and eleven guard dogs.. That’s right, eleven. And judging by the fact that at least one of the dogs attacked members of the raid team and had to be fatally subdued, it’s probably safe to bet that McAffee wasn’t simply dog-sitting the neighbors’ poodles, ya dig?
Now, these details paint an incredibly stereotypical picture of some obnoxiously over-the-top dog-fighting, drug manufacturing, secret criminal compound straight out of a Hollywood thriller. I was waiting to hear that Axel Foley barrel-rolled into the warehouse and shot all the bad guys, but it sounds like the scene was a bit dull (other than the incident with Cujo). They showed up, stated their purpose, and the armed guards surrendered without contest (worthless guards!) McAffee and his seventeen year old girlfriend (yeah he’s almost 70) were hanging out inside, probably counting stacks of gold while planning their next diabolical move. Probably.
"Scan results: threats were found." The antivirus market just got bad ass.
The cops found several pump action shotguns, loads of ammunition, and a pistol. Everything was licensed and accounted for other than the pistol and one of the gauges, so McAffee got detained on some weapons charges. . Additionally, not all of the armed guards were licensed, resulting in the arrest of three of them for “Providing Security Services without a License”. And for the drugs? Giant meth lab? Colombian cocaine distribution? Nope.. just antibiotics. That’s right, manufacture of antibiotics without license, which is illegal in Belize under the Antibiotics Act. How often does this kinda shit go down? Apparently McAffee was ready to get into other sectors of the antivirus industry, hahahaha.
McAffee was later released. I’m not sure if the charges were dropped, but he has come out and said that he is the victim of politics, and was targeted because he did not make a donation to a particular member of the United Democratic Party. So let’s get this straight… an international millionaire has a fortress compound in Belize, filled with illegal armed guards and attack dogs, houses, guns, ammunition, a 17 year old girl friend, warehouse, and lab, where some questionable antibiotics manufacturing is going on, and he is the victim of political corruption… yeah, if this doesn’t have “mob ties” written all over it, then you’re not reading geekblog.tv. So we give John McAffee, who was arrested on weapons and guns charges, the sketchball award of the day.
