“We are fed up with the lack of security and the complicity of officials and judges with crime, and we want victims and not murderers, rapists, drug traffickers, and corrupts to be protected and privileged,” warns one of the many messages that circulated in networks.
“What will become of the police and gendarmes, of the prosecutors and judges who locked them up and condemn them, and of the families of all of them, who will now be threatened by the criminals once again released?” Ask the promoters of the protest.
Along the same lines, the message adds: “Sooner or later, those who have undertaken this campaign to allow the armed of a new ‘Vatayón Militante’, formed by hitmen in the best style of the Chavista paramilitary militias, will have to answer for it.”

In fact, on www.change.org, a website where requests for “social change” are made, a user asked “NO TO THE DEPARTURE OF PRISONERS !!!”, it already has more than 400 thousand signatures in less than three days and seeks to reach at least 500,000.
Among those who signed in favor of that request are Matías Bagnato, a survivor of the Flores massacre, and Viviam Perrone, the mother of Kevin Sedano, who was hit in Olivos in 2002 by a motorist.
