“I am trying to contain my anger. Like I said the last night, I am overall a very sweet and gentle guy but I am very angry that we here because we had this thing under control and people did foolishness and no we have to put restrictions in our country. So everybody please know that the police, B.D.F. and the coast guard have all been instructed to be extra aggressive and extra vigilant to enforce these provisions because people seem to have taken these provisions and these rules and regulations for a joke. I am telling you after tonight there will no laughing and no joking by anybody who violate these laws. I saw on Facebook already people already posting up contraband beer, making joke of it. Let me tell you something, you will not be laughing if the police and or the B.D.F. or coast guard grabs you with that in your possession after tonight. You will not be laughing.”
