I like this one haitians authorities have limited capacity to deter or investigate such violent acts or prosecute perpetrators I'm not surprise in other words haitians authorities are too corrupt too selfish too greedy too scared unqualified to get anything done and then they have the nerve and audacity to come to us to practice the same shit in the community what do you expect from a country like haiti we talking about a country with decades of corruption decades of brutal dictatorship decades of bloody coups even after the earthquake killing thousands and thousands are left disable thousands of children left without parents to make the matter worst the un peace forces brought the cholera into the country killing thousands and sickening thousands more it is the haitian government fault because they can't get alone too corrupt too greedy too selfish to work together to run and build govern their own country like all the other countries open sewage all over the place no wonder so many people continue to die from disease you would think after all these tragedy's they would change their corrupt ways they haven't change a bit that is why the foreigners get involved to help those poor innocent folks on the ground and then they end up losing their own life

Why would any of those mentioned nations above want anything to do with that cesspool?

Please tell the last time it was 100% safe to go to Haiti? What about Jamaica with nearly 2000 murders per year? What about Brazil with police acting as judge, jury, and executioner? Mexico was put on the list after reporters came back with photos of atrocities that would make Freddy Kruger blush. Americans and Canadians are still booking out hotels in Cabo, Mexico. Haiti has some criminal elements just like anywhere else - in the US Virgin Islands this week alone, there was a shootout in the Christmas Village (around kids and tourists), last couple of weeks there the police killed two home invasion criminals, and recently the USVI Police Chief was shot chasing criminals. Why have travel warnings not been announced for America's Paradise (USVI)?
