Three kidnappings with extortion in less than a week a milestone in Chilean crime rate

An attempted kidnapping with the added twist that the perp was the subject of a controversial presidential pardon by Boric for his role in the estallido.
Chickens coming home to roost…

Yes hoping there is some blowback for these reckless pardons. Rightly so alot of people are upset with Boric.

Imagine driving around with someone in your trunk…anyone willing to do that left the reservation of law and order a long time ago.

Holy Shit! Ultra Extreme Facho RAP. :exploding_head:

Remember, it is the extreme Pino supporters who are also voting ‚ÄúA Contra‚ÄĚ this 17th together with the extreme left communists and socialists.

Kidnappers go for ‚Äúknown knowns‚ÄĚ, small business owners and the like.
Gringos are mostly unknowns, with the added complication of Consular intervention if something happens to them while in Chile.

This brings added pressure from the PDI, as Chileans hate outside awareness of how f’ed up this country now is.
