Rise of gangs prompts citizens to call for urgent intervention

The rise of various gangs in different sectors of the capital and the rest of the country has provoked sectors to request urgent intervention to stop the actions of criminals.

The demand comes a few days after the president of the Episcopate, Freddy Bretón, pointed to the most recent criminal acts as a demonstration of a “broken society.”

Moreno Marcelino, the representative of the Junta de Vecinos de Cristo Rey, said that “every night one hears a shooting, some tigueres firing shots like that, so it’s a good idea to shoot someone who comes out of work.”

In this sense, they called to stop the violence and delinquency that the country is going through, which, in their opinion, is the result of the evil of recent times.

However, they understand that parents are partly responsible for their children entering the world of delinquency due to the lack of follow-up in their upbringing.

Don’t allow excuses for gang activity. You have to come down on gangs with a sledge hammer or they will take over. Just look at US Cities like Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit and a host of others.
