    Default Brutality.....

    I have a young Dominican friend who lost an arm and a leg in a motoconcho accident years ago. He has to beg to make a living. Yesterday, I happened to see him. Thieves had slashed his good arm, his leg and his groin with a machete to make him tell where he had hidden his meagre beggings. They caught the robbers, who are now in jail.... Canadian Bob.

    Bob:
    Talk to some friends and see if the offenders can't be put away for a few years...maybe be treated to some "Jailhouse Hospitality"....

    Just an HB sort of idea...

    He has recovered after a few days in the Puerto Plata hospital. His name is Duarte, & hangs out on Duarte street, near the Cathedral. Together with some friends, I have made sure he will have a happy Christmas and New Year.
    Thank you for your kind comments on his behalf.... Canadian Bob.
