Criminal Gangs are Becoming a National Threat

(Bogotá)  The National Police Commander, Gen. Oscar Naranjo, says the
real threat to public safety is extortion, a phenomena aggravated by
criminal gangs.  The official made this statement for what he called
the transformation of the criminal economy: “This is a Sicilian crime
model (installed by criminal gangs), in which the victim ends up
grateful to the aggressor for not hurting them”, and said to make
allowances for this phenomenon is very dangerous,as it can become a
national threat.  During the same discussion group, the Defense
Minister, Rodrigo Rivera, called for about 20,000 additional troops to
confront these challenges.  He said that 2010 closed with more lives
lost than in the past 24 years.  He explained that success will depend
on the security forces, but also citizens and other State
institutions, particularly the judiciary.

    The border mayors conference fails to take into account that although there may be more security, the illegal drug and smuggling activity has increased to offset any percived increases in security to effectivly negate any stated gains!
