While in Egypt there is unrest and protests I read how U.S. Officials are asking for the Egypt government to allow pacific protests. I find it absurd that where they have no control they want to show there force but in Puerto Rico the most important Colony of the US they decide  to have no part of it.

They choose to ignore they abuses the local police have against students that are protesting pacifically.

Why do you think U.S. Officials decide they rather ignore continuous police brutality by the the PR government?

    Because the Fed government wants to have selective jurisdiction over the issues that they want to intervene in Puerto Rico. When they should have jurisdiction and make an intervention they don’t want to take part, but when our government and local police should be allowed to enforce law they stick their noses and take jurisdiction over problems that don’t have any federal power over it. It’s a mixture between Figueroa Sancha being the Super, Ex Fed Agent, and the federal gov interest over Puerto Rico taking part in interventions that make them look powerful by enforcing their law over ours. PR gov is giving them more participation than they should and soon we shouldn’t be suprised when the Fed’s definetely rule PR. :'(

      Jennifer,

      Thanks for always supporting my efforts. On my side I have to say I completely agree with you. It is a matter of time when they keep removing what should be our rights looking for other excuses.

      Thanks for commenting.

    U.S. officials could care less what is happening in Puerto Rico. Until a police officer get shot or killed nobody will pay attention to us.

      Kofia,

      I think you are completely right. I still think we should try to attract attention to the issue from international bodies.

      I really appreciate that you visited my blog and thank you for commenting.

    Both sides are looking for a casualty to begin the blame game, both sides have been very cautious not to shed the first blood.
