73. I am not taling about tourist

getting mugged, that is how much you know about the situation in Venezuela. The link might be 3 years old, but still holds true.

I was born in Venezuela, I do know what I am talking about, I lived there, I grew up there. When I was a teenager I could be rollerskating, which was something all young people did during Christmas, until six or seven in the morning, you can't even go to a store now because you are afraid of getting mugged or getting killed.

This is what happened to someone I know:

In daylight four people on motorcycles cut him off, they were armed, he was with his nine-year-old son, they asked him for the keys of the car, he gave them the keys, the wallet, and then said to them "please take everything but don't do us any harm", the guy said "so you don't care about the car, your watch, your money or anything?" they person I know said, "no, take everything but let us go"...the criminal shot his kid then said "you do care now?"

This is not an isolated story, this happens every day in Venezuela.

Please get informed and stop defending what you know very little about.
