Jairo Mora trial comes to an end...

Recommended Posts

Well, maybe it's a "win" for sea turtles -- but really, it's a "win" for future crime victims when criminals realize they just can't do whatever they want with impunity. The trial had nothing to do with sea turtles or conservation. It had to do with violence and murder. And finally getting everything right so a conviction could be gotten.

 

Perhaps in the future, conservation organizations will give better thought to their policies since the Wide Cast policies clearly contributed to this tragedy.

This morning's SineArt TV News Hour on Channel 13 Cable Tica spent over one(1) hour discussing the murder of a young man in "Playa de Coco" last Friday. The Fuerza Publico Police Chief, A Tico Security Expert and a past Minister of Security took part in this discussion which now appears to be a "front page Hot Potato". They discussed the problem of not having a adequate police presence in "Playa de Coco" to control violent behavior of this type and also this town having a severe drug problem.

 

They also interviewed a "Playa de Coco" Tico Resident who stated that these type of incidents are Not just happening in his town but through-out many parts of Costa Rica.

So... a young man is killed by someone in a "mob" at the beach. Why is this news worth an hour's discussion? Stabbings and shooting happen all the time in Costa Rica so I am puzzled about just why this is a "hot potato" all of a sudden. Maybe because the Fuerza Publico and Minister of Security are looking for more money and this is one way to get it by publicizing a highly visible crime. And why did the tv station give them an hour to discuss this? Of course, the "Tico resident" was so right: It's happening in many places.

Why?; maybe because "Playa de Coco" is one of the prime Tico Tourist Area(s) here in Ticoland.

 

When the Tico Tourist Business of a prime beach area becomes threatened by an issue of this kind it surely will turn into a "hot potato Tico Political Issuej".

 

Also, last night's Repretel Channel 6 and TeleTica Channel 7 Nightly News Hours also gave a detailed report of this Murder.

The coverage of this news report "hot Potato" took around twenty-five(25) minutes in which they also reported that there is a severe illegal Drug Selling problem, and little municipal control of the many taverns/bars in which some stay open all-night in the Playa De Coco Area.
