1. I think this is the real problem.

For many residents, the police are not up to the job of dealing with the issues: Edmuno Luna, the father of an 11-year-old rape victim, said that the police are far too corrupt. "They keep threatening us, the first thing they do is take our money. Do you have cash for gas? Do you have cash for commission? You have to have at least $700."

Vigilante justice over the last month has seen an alleged rapist forced to where a sign "I am a rapist" while being beaten up by a large crowd before eventually being handed to authorities. For some, that is the right way to go.


Not the alcohol. Now it will start a new business industry of bootleggers and illegal speakeasys and yes, more vigilante justice.
