    Default Sos˙a in the News

    News from the German community in Sos˙a has it that a Dominican lawyer there was killed. Details would lead to an execution style murder.
    Any insight?

    I understand that Wilson Garcia was shot & killed lastnight.
    He worked out of La Mulata, which is a very Germanic area, which may explain why you heard it through the German grapevine.

    Rocky, you still don't belive that violent crime is on the rise in the DR?

    I am presuming the OP is correct in their assesment that this was a "execution style murder".

    I truly don't know for sure, and I don't think that anybody does.
    Stats are a joke in this country, so we can't rely on them.
    The only thing I can rely on is my experience.
    As there was so little reporting when I first moved here, yet I heard about just as much crime as I do now, I presume that it is not on the rise, but that we have more reporting and easy access.
    It's not like we had DR1 in those days to inform us.

    Because somebody doesn't like lawyers?

    You should see the Ecuadorean newspaper - Dairio Extra ! Almost every day they have pics of bodies and blood, I guess people love seeing that and I'm pretty sure El Faro (like the Diario Extra) is selling well !

    Default Crime

    Gee, I thought about moving to DR, but I think I will stay in Kuwait. I can walk the streets any time day or night,leave my car unlocked, etc. I don't feel like having a guard at my house.
