As the humanitarian crisis rages on in foreign countries like Haiti, gangs have overtaken the streets inflicting pure hell in cities such as the country’s capital Port-au-Prince.

Check this segment done by BBC News which goes behind the scenes to document the affect the gang violence is having on civilian life and how the Haitian government seems to be looking the other way.

Crime is rampant with murder, rape & extortion being some of the main daily operations. Corrupt politicians & police make it nearly impossible to contain and the Haitian people are at the mercy of it all.

In 2021, Haiti’s president was assassinated in a targeted & brutal home invasion. To date, no one has been held responsible for his murder.
