    This will tell everyone who the zenglindo really are in Haiti. Here we are again. Speaking of the devil it starts to show its tail. The guns in the hands of vagabonds? That explained it all and really well. This should not stay unpunished. Remember you guys in uniforms should have been the ones protecting the stands and you bare the ones burning it. What is this? 2 hi really you people? You who went to the academy what difference does it make in your life and all? What does education do for you?quelle honte? You did that in plain sight? Quelle hypocrisie? Shame on you. You are also responsible for crimes against haitiens and must be punished 10 times more than the uneducated bandits ..
