This week the Venezuelan Nazional Guard unveiled a new weapon in its fight to injure and hurt protesting students. As can bee seen in the picture below, Guards showed up yesterday in at least two cities of the country with a chain with hooks at the end, meant to entangle and injure the students. Such hooks are surely to tear muscle and skin and break a few bones in the process. The guards did not use their new weapons in their debut day, perhaps to their chagrin.
Respect for the “people” and their rights have truly reached a new low under Hugo Chávez
