    Ooh sweet jesus , this nonsense got to stop in Haiti right now. This craziness would have never happened in papa doc era. They wouldn’t dare to even try. The so called educated people are acting like the illiterated? What the hell is wrong with you haitiens? Asked yourselves the same thing to see if you actually make sense. Because of your nonsense other vagabonds are burning every institution they see or can find for no reasons. Is it ok to encourage that? Is it.mental illnesses or simply hatred among brothers? Is it your way to make demands? .the world is watching how stupid you are. Listen very carefully, your actions are speaking ceremony loud and you are closing all doors for you . The doors that were opened in the past and the ones that was never opened. Do you realize that?are you human? If you were in don’t think you acting like human. 5her devil possesses your souls.
    This must not continue even for one more day like that.
    Where are the Haitian’s leaders? Are you leading effectively? Think again bit more, this problem can be resolved rather quickly. Ask your father some questions ?
    How dare would someone walkspecial around and starts burning people’s businesses or houses?
    Think .
