    Default Radio reporter murdered during live show in San Pedro de Macoris

    This happened just a few hours ago, a reporter making a live show on radio station 103 FM in San Pedro was shot dead, along with the director. The secretary is fighting for her life in hospital. Seems that the assassins burst into the radio station during the show and shot him dead. The police have already detained some suspects.

    Quite graphic photos of the aftermath on SIN:

    Sadly, murder has become just another popular career choice, like a lawyer, accountant, engineer, doctor etc.

    When the sentence is minimal and usually just for optics, whats the deterrent for these criminals? How many do you think have ever served more than 10-20% of their sentence?

    Animals. There is nothing that warrants doing something like that to another living being. At times it seems that in this country, more value is placed on material things instead of on living breathing beings. Just incredible.

    this is getting really tiresome. some Dominican does something really heinous, and we start hearing how much the people place no value on life. yet, when some guy in the USA goes into a church, and kills a bunch of innocent people, we hear that he is disturbed.

    just sayin..

    Indint know the background of these killings, but I find it a whole different story when a crazy racist kills a group of church goers than when in a certain country a certain class of people kill for a cell phone or a disagreement. Many of the killings in DR seem to be a result of no value for life, a crazy person killing people at random is probably even more horrible but doesn't say that much of the value of life but much more of the mental state of a part of the population.

    I keep my comments confined to the DR simply because of the directions which have been given by the mods. I think we all know that things like this happens in almost every country on this planet.

    [QUOTE=sddr;1763430] 

    You missed a couple of words. "A few" just before "Dominicans". A lot of us on this forum have a lot of Dominican friends, we know that the majority of Dominicans are nice people who have good values. If you really believe that all Dominicans are cockroaches, you really have no understanding at all of the people and the country. Putting this type of post on a forum for people who have chosen to live in the Dominican Republic - and therefore like the country - is just demonstrating that you are not only racist but also stupid.

    I think the post quoted has been withdrawn by a mod, thanks. I'm happy for my reply to be deleted in this case as well.
