    Sad to say but the Corozal Police are too busy hassling the weak and foolish and will never be able to catch real criminals.
    Corozal has become a cesspool of crime and the incompetent cops are too busy at the local whore house and taking bribes from citizens who might have a busted taillight on their car while they miss the criminals driving by with a trunkload of weapons.
    The drug dealers also have the police in their pocket and are untouchable.
    As for the top cop in this interview. LOL he is working on his retirement fund.
