Haitian gang violence has officially hit cartel levels of violence. On a scale from 1-10 this would be about a 20.
According to NY POST, vigilante mobs are now burning rivals alive in the middle of the streets and nobody is there to stop it.
Haitian officials have long acknowledged the country’s economic deterioration. Due to a widespread humanitarian crisis, the Haitian government has admitted its ineffectiveness to prevent the surges in street crime which includes kidnappings, death threats, murders, armed robberies, home break-ins and car-jacking. Citizens are essentially helpless with little to no protection against the brutality.
Authorities reported 2,183 homicides and 1,359 kidnappings in 2022, almost double the number of cases for the previous year.

What the hell can be done to stop this?
According to AP News, “increasingly sophisticated weapons are being trafficked into Haiti mainly from the United States and especially from Florida amid worsening lawlessness in the impoverished Caribbean nation”.
