Two alleged members of armed gangs were killed this Saturday at the hands of civilians in Gros Morne, about 134 kilometers from Prince Portas part of the actions taken by the population against the gangs that are gaining strength in the metropolitan area of ​​the capital of Haiti.

Hours earlier, the organization had announced that it was targeting two neighborhoods overrun by gangs that had been targeted by citizens. a week. .

Young people armed with machetes, stones or knives, and sometimes wearing hoods, go out to hunt gang members, often accompanied by police, and calls are posted on social networks to join the pursuit of bandits in other areas of the capital and provincial cities.

In a matter of days, the civilian operation went from “Operation Busca Bandidos” to “Bwa Kale” (Spanish for “bare penis”), which was the slogan used last year during protests against the government.

Images of increasingly brutal executions of suspected criminals are circulating on the Internet, showing, for example, large stones, pieces of wood and iron being thrown at them, and their bodies covered in burning tires.

“We are poison to bandits’ shout some men in one of the circulating videos, showing them angrily cracking down on two suspected thugs.

Unusual union of the police and the population

An unusual symbiosis is taking place between the Police and the population in the fight against organized crime in the country, increasing police operations to evict the bandits who have seized the capital, and press conferences with the answer for these actions.

Several suspected perpetrators were fatally wounded in shootouts with police, and weapons were seized, according to figures released this week by authorities.

In addition, very few cases of kidnapping have been reported in the country this week, a fact that can be reconciled with the numbers of kidnappings that have taken place since December 2019, a practice that has normalized to the point of counting at least a thousand cases a year. , and this became a source of funding for these criminal groups.
