The Latin America situation thread

Hi guys.

I'm Chinese and I temporarily work for a Chinese company here in Quito, Ecuador.

Actually I just arrived here for 5 months, I know I may not be capable of talking about this topic with such short time here in Latin America. But today 2 things happen around me that leads me to making this thread. I witnessed a robbery that 2 men in a motorcycle robbed the mobile phone of a girl; my colleague's relative just got murdered for a robbery. I'm awared that those kind of things happen in every single country every day, but still the percentage is quite high here in Latin America. And with all the news I've got on the current society status of this land, man it's quite depressing.

So I start this thread, maybe we can talk about it or something. And some locals can help us understand the situation on this land better.

Oh c'mon it's Chile, one of the most secure countries on this land

The other day when I went to the Plaza Forch, which is the center of entertainment here in Quito, I saw a few guys threatening another, and one of them is with a gun. That's like LA ZONA MAS ANIMADA of the city and there were a lot of ppl, I was in the taxi and I freaked out, I was like "C'mon senior vamos un poco mas rapidito"

Don't be fooled Chile can be a very dangerous place in populated cities and at night.

Re: The Latin America situation thread

The goverments are tools filled with corrupted people drunk with power, that cares about their own benefict or that of the group, combine that with the fact that most latinamerican countries have lots of useless lazy scumbags that go and take the "easy way out" by becoming robbers or dealers. ironically, easy way out with no way out, specially for dealers. The economic situation is hard, many go to the "dark side" pushed by desperation and feeling powerless to not to be able to support their families after losing a job or just because they´re being lazy


It is indeed depressing, very much so, in my case, México, arguably the most violent and unsafe place in latinamerica right now, people gets killed everywhere, every day, gunshots are the new sound of the night, I don´t feel safe when taking a walk afternoon, I´ve witnessed some nasty stuff which I think was more about a "being at the wrong place at the wrong time" thing, people is tired of what´s going on, there is nothing left of the México I remembered when I was a child(not that it was a paradise back then, but in compairason to now, yes), the image has been stained forever. And the future is not looking bright either, usually when it comes to my country(and also the rest of latinamerica) I´m quite idealistic, thinking things will be much better one day, but now even if I try, I just can´t be anymore. The crime and corruption network has gotten way too big, affacting all areas, we´re doomed. I just wanna get the fuck out of here.

for what its worth, the mayority, we are good ppl like no other in the world but unfortunately the scumbags living here are overpowering.

Can't say. Argentina seems like a very safe place too from what I've experienced.
