You say that security is improving over the last 4 years? What facts do you point to that support that?

Because there are at least security forces in the streets where there weren't before. Five years ago local businesses were closing left and right due to extortions. We had no police forces at all then standing between us and the criminals migrating here and extorting. Now there are. I call that progress.

Five years ago when I called 911 to report a person standing in the middle of the street in front of my home at 4 in the morning beating some poor kid (who was later found dead in La Majahua the next morning) with a pistol for over TWO HOURS and no police ever came. I can call the police now and they show up usually within a few minutes, though I haven't had a reason to for quite some time since the Guardia Nacional has been here. I call that progress.

Recently local extortionists who were causing the price of cement to skyrocket, if it was available at all, were caught and the price has come back down and availability has increased. I don't recall local extortionists ever being caught before. I call that progress.

I could go on but I don't have time.
