One (possibly silly) question:
If this area in La Victoria is "noted" as the hot-bed for stolen auto parts; why doesn't the Peruvian government go in there - in a mass raid/similar to FBI tactics - & arrest the criminals?
Are there mafia/mob influences involved or is the "envelope full of cash" being used for favors?
I detest criminal activity; I was a "whistle-blower" in my community of PA.
Rather than discipline the corrupt mayor, attorneys/ & judges; I was the one the police focused upon!!!
It became so obvious with the harassment & two (2) arrests (including jail time) for NOTHING; that I should get as far away from the situation as possible - thus Peru.
PS - "charges" were always - DROPPED (with the arrests); but I will not allow anyone to take my freedom!
