Who Sold Alcohol on Good Friday on Ambergris Caye?

Throughout the day there was evidence that almost all the grocery stores sold alcohol to the locals. Mostly those who appear to be unemployed and people they were ,shit faced, in the center of town. did the police arrest them? Of course not. It was stated by the police that one foreign born shop owner was arrested for selling booze but was released on the orders of our local politician.

The law is mad and should and hopefully will be changed next year. How can all the locals go to bars and stores to get alcohol and the tourists not. At 8.30 am a group of ne’er do wells were sitting outside a particicularly well known grocery store situated just before Banyan Bay sharing a bottle of rum-it is unknown where or when this was purchased.We never see tourists or guests to the island sitting outside these shops,sitting on steps getting paraliticly drunk.

Good Friday appears to be the day that fully supports the locals to get drunk, and to penalise all restaurant/bar owners who pay all their taxes and who support the rulings of the town council.
