  1. Does Antigua police have to go through any kind of physical training yearly?? I believe they need annual physical training as well as ethics training

    • LMAO!! You are so right. Lots of officers are overweight and unable to chase criminals. Apparently any and any diet will do for a police officer. All the rice pudden, bbq pigtails, fry chicken, souse, tripe, potato chips, rum, season rice, black cake, soda and Wadadli beer will clog the colon.

      Even the sedentary lifestyle of their jobs is no excuse to be unfit and out of shape. This needa to be looked into urgently. No wonder them can’t find Thug Life. Even if they were to spot him, they wouldn’t be able to give chase.

      Wouldn’t be surprised if NCDs are rampant within the force.
