    VG police again. One day you might hear they thief a police at vg station. I see why the public doesn't trust the police ,they are jokers. At trellis bay for the new year one little joker with a gun on his side, no mask was performing obscenity with a customs officer in public. A young short girl at RTPS colored her hair as a s**per. No moral and pride as officer of the law.
