One would think the opinions of higher credibility and confidence should come from the public, not the director, to have any reasonable value.

If Major General Eduardo Alberto Then wants the public trust, then close down the crack houses in San Carlos flower Market in Santo Domingo . They have been operating for years ; are open 24 hours a day ; and are located a few blocks from the National Police Station. Focus on crack cocaine and other hard drugs with harsh sentences for the dealers. Stop wasting your time with marijuana .
