On February 11 and 12, hundreds of vulture funds and politicians met in San Juan to discuss how to profit – as much as possible – from the misery of Puerto Rico. It was called the “2016 Puerto Rico Investment Summit.”
Many Puerto Ricans did not agree with this summit…people who’ve lost their jobs, pensions, even their houses, over the past few years…and some of them organized a peaceful protest in front of the summit. The following photo was taken by one of the U.S. “investors” at the summit. It shows him ready to shoot the protesters across the street.
This investor picked up an M4 carbine and Tweeted: “With the protest across the street I feel very safe inside!”
The M4 Carbine can shoot up to 90 rounds per minute, with a range up to 3,600 meters.
The magazines all contain 30 bullets each.
Here is some more information about the M4 carbine:
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
The people of Puerto Rico have every right to express their opinion, regarding other people who are planning to inflict misery and “austerity” on them throughout the island.
As U.S, citizens, they also have a First Amendment right to peacefully assemble, and express this opinion…without someone waving a gun, then Tweeting about it on the internet.
This thoughtless “investor” waving an M4 carbine, reminds too many of us of the Ponce Massacre of 1937…when 17 innocent Puerto Ricans were murdered and hundreds more were wounded, for asserting that same First Amendment “freedom.”
Unfortunately, it is quite probable, that this “investor” knows nothing about the Ponce Massacre, or the history of exploitation of our island.
He is simply there to exploit.
And wave guns.
And “feel safe” for doing it.
A final question worth asking…why would the “2016 Puerto Rico Investment Summit” feel that a table selling M4 assault rifles, was necessary and appropriate to their investment conference?
