As I wrote in another thread:
We might never know for certain how many Venezuelans have been murdered directly by the government of Maduro and Chavez because such figures are
hidden within the amount of murders that have increased during the reign of both dictators.
In 1999 when Chavez took power there were 4,555 homicides in Venezuela, and by 2009 there were 16,047 homicides according to the OVV.
Venezuela murder-rate quadrupled under Chavez: NGO
In 2017 there were 26,616 homicides according to the Venezuelan Observatory of Violence.(OVV) Out of these there were 5,535 cases whose victims were
categorized as being killed for resisting authority. In other words, those 5,535 murders is the figure given officially by the Venezuelan government
of protesters they murdered in 2017 alone. That's not even counting the murders by the hands of Chavistas who were armed by Chavez and Maduro
meanwhile the rest of the populace has been disarmed.
Number of homicides in Venezuela in 2017, by
Since Chavez and Maduro disarmed the populace, but armed Chavistas and ordered the police and military to kill some protesters to try to stop other
protests, and since the only people armed are those loyal to Chavez/Maduro, the increase in murders in Venezuela is directly tied to the repression
Those of you, leftists every one of you, who want to claim that it is safer in Venezuela are denying the truth because NONE OF YOU want to admit what
your utopia truly does in a country.
Most of you haven't even lived under such "terror," but you want to deny the testimony of Venezuelans who have been able to escape, or even
"dissidents" such as students who have been tortured daily in the socialist prisons for disagreeing with the socialist dictatorship.

Venezuela’s Brutal Crime
Crackdown: Executions, Machetes and 8,292 Dead
The torture that has been used mostly on civilians, but also against military personnel who have been caught trying to leave or refused orders,
continues to this day. Such torture includes daily beatings, electrocution to the point that in some prisoners their toenails explode, crucifixion
(yes crucifixion too), stress positions for up to a week, prisoners being bled to make them lightheaded and then interrogate them, etc, etc. All of
this is done to people for simply disagreeing with the socialist dictatorship. Yet leftists living safely in CAPITALIST nations want to claim that
none of this is true. Every one of you disgust me.
Student leader Lorent Saleh, who was imprisoned for 4 years and was tortured for peacefully protesting against the regime, has stated that he saw men
crucified as a form of torture.

Saleh: Vi a presos colgados tres días de una reja, crucificados
The above interview is in Spanish, but anyone can use google translate, or some other translator, so I won't be accused by leftists who can't
understand Spanish that I am making this up.
