Men in uniform; are they drinking on the job?

We don’t have a “picture of the day” segment on the newscast but if we ever did, this photo of Immigration Officers would certainly make it as an all time favorite. The picture taken weeks ago shows four Immigration Officers in uniform sitting on the beach slugging back a few beers. the caption read, “I wish I had their job.” While they thought they were alone enjoying the beach, a taxpayer didn’t think it was appropriate and took the picture as evidence.

    I seen uniform personnel at major airports all over the world having a drink or two at airport bars. You fools should first find out if they are on duty before you make any judgements.

    Incompetent people running the country. There are no standards in place by which police officers and other government officials must operate, it is a free for all. Half the force if not more are alcoholics and ddrug addicts. Why are these officers not randomly tested for drugs and alcohol use. Excuse me if they did that half if not more the police force will have to be discharged.
    Immorality is another problem, the leaders are married to one woman and they have many girlfriends, including other officers. Belize is a Sodom and Gomorrah.

    The men and women who are morally fit and want to do what is right is excluded from promotions. This include the way the prison system is run, that is a cesspool of crop, some of the prison officers are more crooks than the inmates, but htey are the favorites and get the high positions.
    I prophesy that there is coming a day when this whole country will have a shakeup, the whole world will look in wonder, mark my words. I don’t know what it will look like, but it is coming.

    If they were off duty they would not be in uniforms. Schools don’t allow students to take part in activities after school hours in uniform. You can’t drink in a police uniform. it’s clearly daylight hours.

  12. Bear says:

    WHO’S IN CHARGE HERE? That’s the first head that should be chopped.

  13. Mike Vega says:

    This picture was taken in Consejo Village in Corazal. There is a Resort called Casa Blanca rite next to the Customs Department Building in the village. That is where they hang out most of the day and watch the boats from Chetumal pass by without searching them.

  14. ixora says:

    aye peoples, we all do that,stop talking its a free country u do what u want, all government workers work hard so they barely want to go home and change. its simple
    we need these people.

  15. ratty says:

    I’ve never seen that crop in los angeles

  16. verymad says:

    Mike veg
    a, casa blanca wish they have that beach. Its COROZAL not Corazal. It looks more like placenciaToo ugly to be San Pedro.

  17. Gregori says:

    thats good, I believe that police officers, customs, immigration, baha, etc. Are to understand that they are public service personnel and we as taxpayers pay for their salary, they need these kind of scrutiny and more so the corruption will go down in Belize. That is embarrassing, there is no problem if they want to drink beers, just on their own time. Not in uniform.

  18. taboo says:

    everyone need to take pictures and videos of these cops when they are doing the wrong things. These cops need to show example to the people. By people taking pictures and videos these cops will take their jobs more seriously but the president need to fire who ever cop found doing these stupid stuff and make an example of them.

  19. Eye in the Sky says:

    At least they were drinking Belikin since they already delivered all the Mexican beer to Corozal town.

  20. Haterz says:

    People plz stop hating… They are not doing anything wrong… Cant someone have a damm beer after a hard days work.. So what if they are in uniformas long as the job gets done who cares… Its jus clothes… You all do the same thing!

  21. DATENTHMAN says:

    Everyone does it whether in the private sector or in the public service. From the ministers to the janitors…from grey hair to no hair….check Radisson on a Friday evening or hell any restaurant between 12 & 1pm during the lunch hour on any given day. Yes i will agree that taxpayers contribute to the salaries of public officers but the public officers generate the largest revenues for the Gov’t as well. Give them a break these people have a life too and work extremely long hours in stressful environments. When some of your @$$#$ are asleep they are on the grind protecting even the “ARTIFICIAL BORDER”.
