Even before they are being given total immunity for crimes they commit, Martinelli's police and immigration officials are already behaving as if they're members of the infamous Zetas narco gang, according to a reader's story about events in Pedasi.

“Maleantes de mierda”, anyone?

So let's see: We have a police chief who ought to be prosecuted by an international court for war crimes. His advisor and the head of the SPI can't legally have these jobs because of their past. The Attorney General is a Martinelli puppet who got his position because of sleazy and illegal politics which have landed Panama before the Inter American Court. The mayor of Panama City is a corrupt clown who steals and lied about becoming an American citizen. And these people say that some protesters are the "maleantes de mierda"?
