    The small fishes needs to stop saying yes to the big ones.  If they had pride for themselves, country and the job they hold to protect and serve the people of this country they would not accept doing these things.   Its most embarrasing to keep hearing these things...being done by people who knows better.  Many of us in Belize are working for small salaries- Pay has nothing to do with it..  They want to live Grand  !!! We live in a beautiful country and this needs to stop by saying NO to the big guns....  Drugs and guns are  killing our country.  So !!!!  they did the crime they need to do the time.  They should have thought about that before!!!!   Bunch of crooks no better than the Thugs....Now they need to tell the TRUTH who they work for!!!!!!    ENoUGH ALREADY....  i am a belizean and I love this country with a passion...  Send them to Hattiville
