By Larry Habegger | Permalink | 1 comment | February 21st, 2007 | Trackback

A new tourist police force completed training Dec. 20 and is now deployed to assist with directions and information and to increase security in cities and towns frequented by tourists. By mid year another 120 officers will complete their training, doubling the number of officers now at work. By then all will have participated in an intensive six-month English language program as well as studying criminal analysis, communication and other police methods. Authorities created the new tourist police force to protect the tourism industry by reducing or mitigating crime against tourists.

In the middle of the night, the new corporate tax plan for Costa Risa was approved. My truck will be leaving any minute now . The intention was to break the corporate veil and expose assets for the government to better rape and pillage. Further more, Chinchilla is trying to raise a standing army under the guise of a Tourism Police Force . It is time to get the hell out of here while we still can. Go South young men!
