“Hey, here in Guachupita, Los Guandules, La Ciénaga, Mejoramiento Social and María Auxiliadora, they mobilize at all hours, robbing and killing serious people and the Police come and make a bundle and everything stays there,” said a complainant.

The police commanders of the C2 department were described as “lazy” and these “are others who put it on motorists in China when they seize an imprisoned motor, but the criminals walk around as if they had not done anything.”

President Luis Abinader was asked to intervene so that the police officers stop the criminals, who are a “little group” of young people who have five sectors of the National District on edge and keep its residents terrified.
