And there you have your answer why the mayor of Caracas was taken "into custody" away from his nearly unguarded desk by a detachment of masked, truly secret, "anti terrorist" police that would have been , for its numbers, a source of envy to the marines that took down Bin Laden. I stress numbers because quality wise these assholes bullies were not even smart enough to take down the surveillance cameras. Then again they may have wanted to advertise their brutality.
And there you have the answer on why suddenly protesters bodies are found, tied up, a bullet in the head, kind of mafia style execution. Of course it is not the police, it is the "colectivos" to whom the police gave the arrested protesters. A terror scheme that is imported straight from Cuba.
And there you have why the regime allowed use of deadly weaponry to control protests, a fateful decision that had its first victim with a 14 years old child out of high school, trying go help an injured protester.
Simply put, the bloated corrupt bureaucracy is unable to accept its responsibility in the economic mess that Venezuela is today, running fast toward collapse as the black market drop of 10% in two days indicates with extreme clarity. The extraordinary selfishness of a corrupt military class has been the real factor that has stopped any sensible reform in the face of the looming crisis because, I suppose, they were ready to kill, preferred to kill before giving up their privileges.
That is how ALL revolutions end, in a blood bath, the last step before a new civilized order can emerge again.
