    Perhaps his act of kindness will motivate others.

    I'm not that surprised. AMET agents are about the most educated of about any gubmint group on the island.

    Not the ones I met, most of them are as ignorant as a horses' ass. I think the Politur are much better, at least quite a few of them speak a little English

    A little hope is better than no hope at all.

    I have no idea whether this corporal returning the money is the rule or the exception. Suffice it to say that he is clearly a good guy.

    I do not believe that it is unusual for Politur officer should know some English.

    My personal experience is that the PN and Politur officers I have met have been friendy and courteous. Much more so than the police here in Miami.

    AMET agents have the highest qualification standards of any of the police/military forces.

    I know lot of weeding-out has been going on.

    Because maybe they had a little more education?

    I think it should be expected of Politur officers since their job is working with tourists, most of whom do not speak Spanish.

    If this would be a real "Dominican" board, there would be comments like: "Que pendejo" or "hay que darle golpe pa' volver el dinero..."
    I don't want to know what his family told him when they read this in the news.
