Calling protesters "maleantes de mierda" and the general "we don't give a fuck what you think" attitude are probably related to the mysteriously high liquor bills the presidency has been accumulating lately - one could easily see these nouveaux riche vulgarians shouting and wasting their cabinet meetings away with drunken twaddle. The rudest and most bad mannered of the whole clique - although it's a close call - is probably the minister of the presidency Jimmy Papadimitriu.
Javier Arias, Roberto Henriquez and Shlomo Salmon all spend considerable time worrying about the left in Panama. Not to mention the insane response to SUNTRACS protests. Don't these people have work to do?
So let's see: We have a police chief who ought to be prosecuted by an international court for war crimes. His advisor and the head of the SPI can't legally have these jobs because of their past. The Attorney General is a Martinelli puppet who got his position because of sleazy and illegal politics which have landed Panama before the Inter American Court. The mayor of Panama City is a corrupt clown who steals and lied about becoming an American citizen. And these people say that some protesters are the "maleantes de mierda"?
