Puerto Rico is beginning to look more and more like Mexico with it's wave of violence related to the drug cartels. This must be brought under control. If the government does not take action then the Puerto Ricans as American citizens have the right to use force to remove these barbaric elements from society.

Though I understand what you are trying to say . when people as in self appointed militia, neighborhood watch take armed action you wind up with lots of dead innocent people and mostly them.

PR, Mexico and while it at Miami need to replace 80% of their police , not hire new police but replace police and EVERY top police brass.

While at it do the same for as many politicians.

Replacing the police brass? Firing 80% of officers and starting all over?

Good luck with that happening anytime soon.

NPR published a series of articles a few months ago on the crime in Puerto Rico. Alot of mainland news sources finally beginning to report on the crime wave.

P.R. is on the line of fire and the Caribbean frontier is yet to take off.

We are suffering for all the illegal drugs consumed in the States.

Nobody forces anyone to consume nor sell drugs.

Personal accountability.

I see no reason why most of the police brass can not be fired or at min removed and replaced , Rudy did it in NY and in Doral where I live it was done (still no police car cameras), granted they are not PR as far as amount of precincts go but it can be done .

I agree about firing 80% of officers and starting all over that won't be done but firing and replacing is the key.

In the end do the majority in PR want that and elect new officials who will do that?

I wanted cameras on every police car in Miami as the police standards here are horrible ,when I used to go to city meetings in dade county it was the same thing . A tiny group of people would bother with 99% of the population complaining never bothering to do a thing , they can't be bothered to send an email to officials, always vote for the same round robin bunch of politicians and thus no change.

Personal accountability.
A sickness is beyond personal accountability.

Drug addiction is not a moral issue, but a health one.

As long as there's a market; there's a supply.

We have to attack the "market" and force all "them" sick people to recover or pay some sort of social fine.

Eventually, it will come to this.

Again....So, people are forced to sell drugs by way of market demand?

And, where are the personal values in that?.

What's wrong with work?.

Addiction is a sickness.

A sick person has to recover in order to work.

We, as a society, are better off targeting the market (while cutting supplies).
