Dominican society ‘tired’ of government’s gun control blah blah

Santo Domingo.-The national coordinator of the civic movement Citizen Participation on Thursday said it´s painful to hear talk of gun control only when unfortunate situations like the murder of mayor Juan de los Santos and his bodyguard occur.

Candido Simon criticized Interior and Police minister Jose Ramon Fadul for stating his regret, instead of tackling the issue. “We´re already tired of officials who forget what they are, an officer doesn’t denounce, but act and do the right thing so that society can live with greater peace, harmony, tranquility.”

He said the government and the political class have utterly failed on public safety, noting that despite president Danilo Medina´s vow to work for ‘quiet living,´ “the truth is that we are not living quietly for the fear citizens face everywhere.”

Frustration of the President

Simon slammed Medina for “appealing to God” when we´re going through rough situations, it sends a signal of frustration because “he´s the chief executive, who must say ‘this cannot go on, I’ll take drastic measures.”

He added that what´s hurting Dominican society isn’t poverty but social inequality, since “we´ve been poor since 1492.”

“Those who must preach with example from above are doing it very badly.”
