  1. They should clamp down on the prostitutes outside of Anchor Bar and the drug dealers.

  2. The police should try hitting San Blas on the Golf del Sur there is plenty being sold there as well.

  3. Anyone who buys this junk is just wasting money – obviously fake, poorly made and falls apart in days. I’m surprised it’s still available anywhere. But while people will buy it the crooks will sell it somehow.

  4. just have a couple of plain clothes coppers nicking them itll be gone in a week.
    to be honest the Chinese women were more of a pest waving dangerous toys at the kids.

  5. Shame that it is just the retailers. They want to hit the importers and distributors.
