    Haiti needs an army to patrol the streets in the capital of port au prince 24/7 to ensure and enforce the presence of the existence of the laws. It is as if there is no law to la ville when it comes to port au prince Haiti the face of the palais national dhaiti.
    Haiti is the only island that let’s it’s mass rebels population rules the streets of its capital. The capital of port au prince is the most dangerous place to ever go to in Haiti and, the worst capital in the Caribbean, due to it’s lack of the presence of the law.
    Corruptions, theft, dirty, ugly, overpopulated, I would subjest that the president in power should take another look of a capital of any island or country and he will realise that a capital of a country is the face of the country.
    I remember going to Haiti when I was a kid tourism and cruise ships use to be every where, the capital was clean tourism where all over the streets in the capital of port au prince,
    Now the powest family would not want to let their child nor a family or a friend go to the capital which is call la ville de port au prince.
    Which i would prefer to call the face of the palais national of Haiti.
