  1. It’s guys like this that give outer islanders a bad name. I’ve seen the hard working ones who follow the law and then we have this guy and those like him. Probably doesn’t have a job but for some reason, liquor is never in short supply. He uses his girlfriend as a punching bag on occasion and has no respect for authority. Put him behind bars where he belongs and when he finishes his sentence, DEPORT THE FOOL IMMEDIATELY. If possible, provide him with a parachute and let him jump out of the plane as it cruises over his atoll. If he’s lucky, he won’t land on top of a coconut tree on the way down.
