Perhaps thats why we have so many unsolved murders in P.R. The murderers are investigating the murders. Now it makes sense why no one will talk to the police. Very, very disturbing.

Hey, Gringo, how've ya been?

I gotta believe (for my own sanity) that most of the police here are as horrified as you and I are at this event. As to why the other 2 officers didn't step in ... shock?

Doing great PRJester. Man, there's no making sense of it. Swinging the clubs, intimidating, planting evidence I can believe. Killing someone...its going to take me a while to come to grips with the new reality.

What's up with DLo?

All of those who are supporting independence should take a long, hard look at that video. A change to independence would create a great deal of uncertainty and unrest on the island. It's frightening to think of how our police force would handle that.

DLo? Dave is going through a time of personal crisis. His wife left him, and he goes through some pretty significant mood swings. A dog, behaving as he does, would be quarantined and tested for rabies.

David, Your schizophrenia is a hard disease to live with but manageble if you take your medications. So take your Meds, David.

What was that about Nuyoricans in relation to their Love for Puerto Rico that does NOT gell with you?

You obviously know little about PR history other than stealing other people's materials by cutting a pasting and claiming it as an original thought.

Your ignorance is shown constantly in your million word convulsion which you have daily on these forum.

better training and less work can't make you know right from wrong. that cop shot that innocent man in the back like 4 times while the man was on his stomach. you need training for that? i know i have never shot anyone for lack of sleep or being worked too hard. that cop deserves the worst.

This is the Caceres slaying by a cop I mentioned on another forum. Even though since then, the police officer received a long sentence, his partners ( in crime ), did not.

Cops are poorly trained and disciplined in Puerto Rico. The partners did NOTHING, THEY RAN AWAY! And received no punishment for their actions, except lost their jobs.

I hope the lawsuit from the widow wins billions!
