    Default American Couple Arrested in Cabarete

    According to dominicantoday.com, An American couple and their Dominican "companion" were arrested Thursday in Cabarete for swimming in the beach despite the hurricane Maria anti swimming ban.

    What do people think about this? Now Gringos are getting arrested on the beach. Wow...

    What's next for this "Caribbean Paradise"?

    You finally deciding the place isn't right for you and moving on?

    You accepting the fact that you're not going to leave, and complaining is futile?

    You recognizing that your attitude might have a tiny bit to do with your unhappiness here?

    I see nothing wrong with it. The swimming ban is put in place for a reason.

    American idiots get arrested for violating a swimming ban put in place because of a hurricane and someone gets upset about it?

    I was nearly arrested for playing frisbee with a bunch of my Air Force mates on Virginia Beach.

    It was mid April and we were the only ones there on a rather chilly day.  A cop saw us and rushed over to us on his quad bike and very sternly pointed to the sign saying that ball games were not permitted on the beach.

    Arguing the fact that a frisbee was not technically a ball, was only met with consternation from the cop and told me to stop being a wise a$$, or I would find myself in jail.

    So I politely asked the cop where the local planning department office was.  He asked why.  I replied that perhaps we would need to submit planning permission before we built a sand castle on his precious beach!

    Good- when jackasses do stupid **** like this - someone has to try to save them or at least retrieve the bodies - taking away resources from the rest of the people during a potential emergency so you can brag to your friends that you swam in a hurricane is ****ing selfish as well as stupid - hope they get jail- then drown
