A nice moment from Belén Marrero (UPDATED)

This video of actress Belén Marrero talking about her friend Mónica Spear is not my cup of tea, but something tells me that, in our telenovela-obsessed country, it hits a nerve. It’s a good moment for her, putting into words the absolute despair of many Venezuelans.

I also like the link that she makes between crime … and the government. This is one person who understood the gist of yesterday’s post.

Update: Ultimas Noticias is reporting the presumed culprit has been in and out of jails for years. Thank you, judicial system. Anybody out there still think this is a problem of culture and education? (HT: El gran Willy)
