Awful awful news ... Being shot for carrying rice, regardless of it being stolen or not ... It was so much rice (heavy), it's not like the people must have been running with the sacks and bucket! They could have easily stop them or what not!

i suspect,these guys were not so innocent,as the video makes out,as in reality,bags of rice,don't randomly fall of the back of trucks,in country's like hati.

but still,its a bit harsh to kill a man and paralyze the other,because they were trying to feed them self's or family as
i doubt they were selling the rice for a crack habit.

but being left on the street like that to die shows how void of empathy the human race has become.

So sad...The state of affairs in Haiti are reprehensible. If only people would dare to intervene when they know these sort of acts are not only illegal, but completely immoral.

Truly sad, and this just goes to show I am right.
I have often preached that food is much more important than buying gold.
If these men had the food ahead of time, they would have been home eating with their families in ....relative safety.
This is the worth of food.
Buy food guns and land, not gold.

What a shame. It does show how cheap human life is. And how people in power can become utterly immune to feeling empathy for those they "manage."

Good, but sad, thread.
