More dead in Venezuela as violence continues

caracas reuters violence over venezuela s disputed presidential ...
It’s been several days of protesting, rioting and looting in Venezuela, claiming several fatal victims every day.
More than two dozen people have been killed in less than a month and young people keep leaving the country.
People are starving, protesters are getting gunned down by the police and Maduro supporters and it seems that Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship is running on fumes.

Even people with jobs are  looking through garbage to find food. Inflation has spiralled out of control long ago and the lie that is the Venezuelan government can’t keep food on the shelves.
An interesting fact and important reminder: Less than Lethal 12ga ammo (plastic buckshot) CAN be lethal at very close range. Gruseny Calderon was killed by rubber bullets that pierced his lung and liver.

here's the latest:
On Sunday night, Maduro ordered the National Bolivarian Militia, a coalition of armed socialist civilians empowered to enforce Maduro’s will, into the streets to stem the tide of opponents calling for elections to replace him. He promised “a gun for every militiaman” and the quadrupling of his civilian force, from 100,000 to 400,000, as soon as possible.

of course, guns were banned from private ownership 5 years ago.

It is a sad situation, especially that the US Government chooses to ignore what's going on there. For a couple tankers of oil sold here, we could fill all their grocery store shelves.

Hey, how about personally contributing to a charity that will help them, rather than involving our government? Frankly, our (nominally) capitalistic society doesn't need to be in the business of cleaning up messes caused by a totalitarian socialist regime.
