Violent crime rampant in Santa Cruz, Bolivia

This cartoon appeared in El Diario on July 23, 2011. It portrays how violent crime is taking over the streets of beautiful Santa Cruz. Democracy is being shot by paid assassins (sicario) and narcos. This past week, a defense lawyer was shot in front of the Justice Palace; an alleged Brazilian sicario was detained.

Unfortunately, violence is escalating. People is found dead on streets and existing police force is insufficient to fight crime.
