So what caused this crime spree that made the L.A. riots look like Disneyland? The police force! Only a month after a drug scandal broke out, the cops in the province demanded an undeserved pay increase. They went on strike as soon as the government failed to meet their demands.
The tragedy here is that some of the teens and young adults boasted about their criminal activities on their personal facebook page. Aside from the fact that this is probably the stupidest move ever, it shows a lack of remorse for their actions. I worry about what the future holds for Argentina if these are our future governors, teachers, etc.
I took to social media to protest the actions of the vandals. For the most part, the general consensus of the Argentinean people was the same, they were all ashamed and disgusted by the actions of these thieves. Some people even took matters into their own hands to stop the vandals.
|People beat the crap out of this looter|
|Sure! Cry all you want! You should have thought of it before you started stealing|
By Wednesday afternoon, the government gave into the demands of the police and cops went back to work. Order has been restored … for the most part, but there were over 60 injuries and at least one death in all this mayhem, not to mention that over a thousand stores were damaged.
