“Sensation of insecurity” chronicles, continued

New Interior Minister Néstor Reverol repeated the official defense of the Chavernment regarding high criminality in Venezuela: it’s a matter of perception.

This weekend alone, authorities stopped four attempted lynchings in the Guarenas-Guatire area.

Looks like people there perceived some inaction by the police and the justice system and decided to take matters into their own hands. We can say this for Reverol, though: at least he has been more open about the murder rate in Caracas than his predecessor.
