|La Planta aflame in tear gas, from a reader's window|
But the regime has other priorities for its cash...... corruption surely trumps humanity.
So now it is yet another Caracas area jail, one almost downtown Caracas, La Planta, to explode. Imagine that, there are inside as much as 4 times the amount of people that the jail was designed to hold....
The regime as usual blames anyone but its incompetence, with a special accusation for the media. I am not putting a link, just the Google search for your enjoyment. However we must underline the wisdom of Iris Varela: to solve La Planta problem, it is enough to close it and put its inmates in overcrowded jails elsewhere. At least they will be far from Caracas and these pesky media. Elides Rojas suggests that a liberated La Planta should be transformed into the museum of the bolibanana revolution, a satiric article not to be missed.
By the way, to make sure I am not accused of sensationalism by Iris, this picture is sent to me by a reader that lives downtown Caracas and could see from her window the spectacle of tear gas in La Planta yesterday. By the way, Caracas main thoroughfare had to be closed for a whiel because of shooting. No further comment needed.
