Many years back, the National Police admitted to having records of 27,000 micro-trafficking points around the country. This week, Hoy carried a story reporting on how several drug sales points are in Google Maps for easy location by interested persons.



Prosecutor Rosalba Ramos confirmed the situation and called it “shameful.”



After the news made the rounds of the media, several of the points were removed from Google Maps.

Another one to add to the "Only In The DR" catalog.

The PN make up for their ridiculously low saleries by taking a cut of the sales.
Another one of the PLD legacies that will probably take atleast one generation to change.
The rabbitholes in this country are very deep.

Why would it ever change from what it is now?

Just out of curiosity I went on Google Maps and checked.
I found one with 14 reviews, LOL.
You can make this stuff up.
Again... ONLY IN THE DR.

So you mean that it won't lead immediate arrests of the operators of "puntos" and mass arrests? Well there's a surprise!

This one in Santiago has a helpful photo, in case you're not sure. Eighteen reviews and four stars.
