Lawless and Disorder

June 28, 2003

One of the resaons people voted for Hugo Chavez was that he fooled them into believing that because he was a former military official, law and order would be a priority. In particular, people thought Chavez would fight crime earnestly. Well, it seems to be exactly the opposite, not only is crime at its worst, but there is rampant impunity as witnessed by what happened tonight. Last night, a military officer was drunk and was jailed by the Metropolitan police. Well, tonight the military police  (English version) from the Army decided to free their mate and went in shooting at the metropolitan police to do it. The police shot back at them. Fortunately nobody was hurt, even if the truck from the military police now has a few bullet holes. So even those that are supposed to enforce law and order, simply bypass it.
