Puerto Rico, drugs, crime, homicide and political issues.
I could go on for days on the great things on Puerto Rico, but we are here to tell the gloom as well.
Puerto Rico has a massive smuggling and drug trafficking problem, as well as murders and homicide.
With a population of just over 4,000,000 people, and a up and down local government, hot travel destinations and United States protection. It is no wonder why Puerto Rico is fast becoming a hot travel destination. They offer great deals, low prices and a great experience with tourism and business ventures.
With some of the most beautiful destinations to see in the world, please do not let this article keep you from going and seeing.
They have been off the map for quite some time in all the glamour that is being recognized through out the world however. The problems they face each day are hidden from view and have been forgotten about with all the glitz and good news. Remember how awesome Mexico was, until the real news came out. ( social corruption at it’s finest).
On average, per 1,000 people that live there, 8 or more of them die each year and mostly from homicide or other serious causes. The average median age there is around 40 years old. The average death age is around 70 or so from birth, if they make it. The Government there is a commonwealth of the United States with no real control for themselves. This makes local laws and governing very difficult to do, as it has to go through congress for approval and passing before it takes effect; which can take some time. They have 78 municipalities on there list of which I will not bore you with at this time and we control all of them entirely. There flag still holds true though with some good history and a story behind it. Such as the blue in the flag which stands for there coastal waters and the red in the flag; the death of their warriors in battle.
Throughout the country including the highly acclaimed Caribbean Island’s. Believe it or not the majority of murders are committed along these borders. With local government only being allowed to do so much, they are severely behind on this problem. The United States has now recognized this problem and is facing it head on ( ish) to be put more plainly. Millions and millions of dollars worth of cocaine and other heavy drugs are seized and even more than that, not seized each year. With over 70% of the homicides being drug related in Puerto Rico, it has now alarmed the U.S. Obama has pledged to help with this problem, but it is slow going at best. They make arrests constantly and try to keep a cap on the problem, ( they are just beginning). As stated by the local Government there, They are the most unprotected and most under helped nation with the war on drugs. Obama and his administration hope to redefine that and the major problems.
The fear of a nation. Grows everyday!
This problem is so severe that it has caused panic, riots, unjust killings of the innocent and more amongst it’s people, not even including tourists who are getting the same treatment. This is a severe problem to the point where massive riots and murders in one day are taking place. The people are dying by the thousands each year just from drugs and there related issues alone! This problem has always been there for Puerto Rico, but not to this degree. They are located between South America and the United States, so with that they are a distribution HUB for the eastern sea board. Over 80% of the drugs that are ran through here end up on the eastern seaboard on the United States, major cities like New York, Boston and so on. This creates major problems here at home for us as well as abroad. That’s another story though, look for our issues in New York article coming soon. There seems to be a problem no matter where you go there. More and more cargo containers, yachts and fishing boats are being used to transport, to the point where they cannot even get to 10% of the drugs and people being smuggled through. It is said that cartels are finding new routes to transport there products; with Mexico getting very heavy attention at it’s borders and more, the news, travel and governments, they are moving it through Puerto Rico. It is faster and cheaper as well, it has a much higher success rate to arrive at it’s destinations to, this is a bit concerning for me personally.
Will Puerto Rico turn into a Mexico, cartels, murders and more. Will there economy crash?
With the F.B.I and law enforcement aiding the dealers and cartels, it has become very difficult to control this problem. These officers are being paid off by drugs, cash and more everyday. The drug problems In Puerto Rico are just the beginning. Now with record high deaths, infant disabilities, murders, garbage on the streets, hospitals flooded with over doses and much more. There has never been a time in history that teens and young adults have every reached the levels of drug abuse and problems. They are stabbing people just for money, jewelry or anything else that can and will fuel there drug addiction problem. With no where to turn for help, “ they run wild in the streets”. The drug problem there is so bad that only 4 out of 10 people work a normal job. With business owners shutting down and no jobs to go to; they turn to what is called an “ underground economy” drugs are that economy. With over 330 housing projects for those without a home, and zero rooms available, they are left to the streets. ( teens don’t have a chance to thrive ). Schools are being shut down and airports over run with this problem and lack of funding, legal funding has pretty well gone away. With the drug lords targeting young adults and teens for there tasks, they don’t even consider school. They die young, but there family and or mom has a lot of money. The average drug runner get’s paid 500.00 dollars a day cash, and in U.S dollar value, that is a lot of money there. They die for the most part before the age of twenty and the money is wasted along with there life for doing this. Children’s dream jobs are now gun runners, triggermen, drug runners and more; and they get paid very well for doing this despite the consequence.
Why would a 10 year old go to school when he can make around 14,000 dollars a month shooting people or delivering drugs on a daily basis until he/she is dead! What kind of money do you make? If you legally work for your money, most Americans don’t make that each month. That money amount is illegal along with what they are doing, it is immoral and beyond most honest people’s comprehension; including myself.
A 10 year old boy makes around 160,000 plus dollars a year doing this work for cartels. You can even make more as you move up in position and get established with them, people die, so you move up. Your skill level increases and you move up, you kill the person ahead of you, and you just moved up. Now your making half a million dollars or more as a young adult, unbelievable. This should give you an idea of what we are talking about here at socialcorruption.com, this is a problem, morally, socially and more.
