Heading North...
...but only crime persists!
28/06/2007

Theft, armed robbery, carjacking, violent assaults, highway robberies, sexual assaults, home invasions are few kind of crimes to start off with, in the democratic republic country Guatemala. Add to this domestic violence which is common in almost every house. The law of land prohibits domestic violence and sexual abuse, but ironically do not provide severe punishment for the same. By the end of year 2005, the National Civil Police (PNC) reported 545 killings of women. Guatemala City has already experienced 299 killings of women till May 2006. As per UN, there are at least 1.5 million illegal arms in Guatemala. In a country with an approximately 12.7 million population, this exponential increase in crime rate will not only devastate the economy, but also will make it most unsafe and undesirable place to live in. The Achilles’ heel of the judiciary and law combined with inadequate resource allocation; impossible for peace keepers to maintain the public confidence.
