"Countless Wounded" After 5,000 Loot Supermarket Looking For Food [Venezuela]
Zero Hedge ^ | 15 May 2016 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 05/16/2016 2:17:07 PM PDT by Lorianne

As pure desperation has set in, crime has becomes inevitable. A man accused of mugging people in the streets of Caracas was surrounded by a mob of onlookers, beaten and set on fire, who published a pixeled-out but still graphic video of the man burning as mob justice is now the supreme arbiter of who lives and who dies:

"Roberto Fuentes Bernal, 42, was reportedly caught trying to mug passersby in the Venezuelan capital

and before police arrived at the scene, the crowd took the law into their own hands." The video can be seen here.

Now, in the latest shocking development, Venezuela saw a new wave of looting this week that resulted in at least two deaths, countless wounded, and millions of dollars in losses and damages.

According to Panampost, on Wednesday morning, a crowd sacked the Maracay Wholesale Market in the central region of Venezuela. According to the testimonies of merchants, the endless food lines that Venezuelans have been enduring to do groceries could not be organized that day.

As time went by, desperate Venezuelans grew anxious over not being able to buy food. Then they started jumping over the gates and stormed the supermarket.

"They took milk, pasta, flour, oil, and milk powder. There were 5,000 people".

They just don’t know how to implement socialism properly. It will work here in the US with Bernie or Hillary. This time it’ll be different.

The problem with socialism is with each passing generation of useful idiots it needs to be marketed and repackaged as something new and REVOLUTIONARY. A lot like those sleazy late-night infomercials pushing the same old get-rich-quick scams as something new and innovative. Whether it’s buying real estate with no money down. Or making a killing in the market whether stocks are going up down or sideways. Selling the latest snake oil while building a downline or some other unrealistic unworkable mathematically impossible MLM/pyramid racket. They’ll tell you not to listen to the skeptics and “dream stealers” other systems failed because they were implemented wrong by the wrong people but THEY have a PROVEN SYSTEM that works, trust them. Sound familiar?

Every pitcha tell a story.

After it gets even worse, we'll end up sending military assets to restore socialism.

Does this mean that Socialism is not going to give me a years supply of heating oil as they promised?

Call Joe Kennedy. One of his scams is Citizens’ Energy. He gets paid $650,000 a year to make one commercial pumping oil into an old lay’s cellar and “running” the company. Just one scam in the $400M Kennedy crime syndicate.

I don’t know what street justice has to do with socialism,
especially when we are half-socialist ourselves without giving thugs the beatdown they have coming.

This is capitalist propaganda. No one starves in a socialist workers paradise. Government makes sure of that. This just besmirches socialism’s superior reputation.

Socialism is just the transitory, temporary phase that when complete, brings about pure communism.

In reality socialism never will end. And the inner party rulers know that and do not want it to end, because they dont want to give up the perks and power and be equal with all the redt, just another ordinary socialist citizen.

Call Joe Kennedy.
"We've changed into something with ZOOM,watch us now we'll show you how, Cities Service is Citgo now" He was shilling for Citgo a few years ago acting like Hugo Chavez' PR lackey. BTW, interesting how this commercial was Baba Wawa's big break into show biz.

Nope. Under Obama our response is to allow a ton of them citizenship via refugee status.
