** Brigadier General Dario Tapia
*** Brigadier General Dario Tapia
What I would love to see on local TV.

You know in the military or police, they want you from 18 to 45 years of age. You are supposed to stay in physical shape and pass an annual exam by a doctor and a field test for running and pack carrying. After age 45 years, you are considered too old physically for the rigors of the work.
In Belize the marching pace is considered to be 120 paces per minute. You are supposed to march 4 miles an hour. There are alternates to this, in which you jog a bit and walk a bit.
When I look at Brigadier General Dario Tapia I see a fat man. Fat men can be deceptive, the fat might just be hidden muscle. Singh our police CEO once lamented about all the belt busting policemen he had on the force, who had to get in shape, or quit the force. I wonder what happened with that?
The good Brigadier has to be able to walk 4 miles in one hour. He should therefore walk one mile in 15 minutes. Which means he could conceivably jog one mile in 9 minutes.
I´d love a public TV SHOW in which all these fat looking guys in the POLICE and Defence Force had to cover a four mile stretch on their annual physical together in 40 minutes. I think that would be very amusing and entertaining. Not to say, enlightening and useful to the improvement of the moral and stature of the two military types we pay salaries too.
HOW ABOUT IT GUYS? A RACE between the police and the BDF fat guys for your annual physical.
