My name is Matias. I am an officer within the Guatemalan capital. My shift that I work is typically in the evening but I am now covering for a friend in the morning.

If enyone goes to call me or anyone out on my occupation its easy to handle it; charge them for something that put fear in them. Inshort they shut up after a few time being thrown in jail.
