Insecurity and unemployment… the jewels of current gov’s crown!

Today, I have the sad and powerless duty to show current Bolivian central government’s most notorious contribution to Bolivian lifestyle:

From El Diario:

The insecurity grows as unemployment for the last five years

2013-03-17 09.26.59 amThe estimates reveal that crime, crimes against persons and private property rose by 78% in recent years.

The insecurity has become the main scourge affecting the Bolivian society, whose growth has maintained a steady pace during the last five years, which rose from 32 to 118 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, which refers to the commission of crimes, felonies, serious and slight injuries, rape and others linked to trafficking in persons, according to a report by the National Observatory of Citizen Security.

Crimes against private property also increased conspicuously, registering a rise from 150 to 187 crimes per 100,000 people during the period from 2009 to 2011. In a similar lapse, there were 10.6 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants, which reflects a very high rate originated in the absence of sources of employment and other initiatives that should provide income for people.

The Observatory maintains that the high perception of insecurity is related mainly with the increase in the rates of crime and unemployment. The highest incidence are the crimes against persons, it is followed by the property crimes and, finally, crimes and violent killings.

The indicated organization indicates that its participation in the control of insecurity, is related to the institutional development at the national level. You have, as an example, the strengthening of the Vice-Ministry of public safety, with proposed programs to improve their capacity of development and evaluation of security policy and interinstitutional coordination.

The program supports the development of the capacities of the municipal governments of Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, La Paz and El Alto, seeking to establish, analyse security problems and propose effective interventions in these cities. Police criminal records show a continuous increase since 2005 through 2011, so the different divisions of the special force of fight against crime (Felcc), have attended 26,726 allegations that, in percentage terms, represents 78% of increase in seven years. This result more than 70% of the complaints were recorded in the backbone of the country such as: Santa Cruz, Cochabamba and La Paz, and 30% remaining in the other departments of the country.


Lets not forget that in the past seven years, and under current central government policy, the concept of “community justice” has led to several killings by mobs, with the excuse of robbery, rape and other crimes… it is anarchical and Bolivia has thrown to the trash-can all our institutionality. With the excuse of attacking western civilization and blaming the capitalism and the colonialism, they have managed to destroy any civility we had…
