The president of El Salvador has authorised "lethal force" in the fight against criminal gangs.
The country has also enforced the opposite of social distancing in its jails, packing opposing gang members into the same cell.
President Nayib Bukele ordered a 24-hour prison lockdown after the central American country reported 24 homicides on Friday.
It is the worst one-day total since Mr Bukele took office in June last year. By late afternoon on Sunday, police had registered another 29 murders.
Forcing rival gangs to share the same space is intended to break communication between members of the same group.
Mr Bukele said police and the armed forces can use "lethal force" to defend themselves or the "lives of Salvadorans".
He said criminals were taking advantage of the fact that security forces had been busy helping to contain the country's outbreak.

They are ALL tagged with their gang affiliation. Most of them in tattoos 18 inched high so you cant miss it. 18th Street Gang or MS-13. Putting them both in the same cell would be like a cage match. Gonna have to have guards with rifles like pic related to prevent it.
Both Honda and Salvador hav laws that if you have either of those tattoos, THAT IS YOUR CRIME. You go to prison. Until you dont have the tattoo, which is gonna be the 15th of Never.
It’s a very interesting way to curb crime.
Meanwhile, back in the USA, we are letting them out early.
We visited one orphanage in Salvador City with 500 5 year old boys. And they wont let Americans adopt because the Cuban Communists have run a PsyOp down there for decades, The only reason wealthy Americans want to take these kids back to America is because they want the organs for their sick children. So their governments have all made it ILLEGAL for Americans to adopt down there.
37Alphas. Every country has them and they all get plenty of work.
Open season. No bag limit.
Perhaps enlisting the El Salvador enforcers is the way to handle our swamp critters
Gonna have to have guards with rifles like pic related to prevent it.
Why prevent it?
The elites of those countries are very conflicted. We went to a cocktail party at the big Country CLub in Salvador city and a couple of wealthy Salvadorans went with us as translators for the whole two week trip. I had a chance to talk to them at length between sites. They are all seriously Catholic Religious. And they dont know what to do with these people. They cant bring themselves to just kill them because they are deeply religious people. But they realize they cant let them out. So they just lock them up. The prisons are mostly run by the inmates. They have some where all th inmates have to be from one gang. The guards dont even ENTER those. They just deliver the food.
Its a problem. The elites see the productivity of their nation languishing in prisons and dont know what to do.
Because the real citizens of these countries dont want to be involved in large scale murder. Believe me, they realize it is an option. They have had problems with options like that in the past.
the answer is simple.
Kill them all so the next generation can be productive God will take care of them.
Round up and ship them some more targets. We would hate for their firearm proficiency to wane
Works same as it works for our swamp critters .....
Because the real citizens of these countries dont want to be involved in large scale murder.
Apparently theyre already involved in large scale murder. As victims, mostly, but involved they are.
But you can see their dilemma. So they just keep doing what they are doing and it just gets worse and worse. One factory owner told me straight up he was moving his entire production to India because he has to or go broke. Their economies have been wrecked for decades and getting worse, which is why they are all willing to walk all the way here.
Not saying I have any answers, just observations that better define the issue. My personal hunch is their societies are so rife with corruption and have been for centuries what they are experiencing is just the outworking of that sort of Tolerance for Corruption. But its so deeply ingrained in their culture, good luck changing that.
>>The only reason wealthy Americans want to take these kids back to America is because they want the organs for their sick children.<<
Ah, the Clonus conspiracy theory.
But it IS the Law in every one of those countries.
Looks like El Salvador has some small islands off their coast. They can invoke the “Escape from New York” option......
“Mr Bukele said police and the armed forces can use “lethal force” to defend themselves or the “lives of Salvadorans”.
Before the order they couldn’t?
