    I learned something completely new from this passage and that is how the court system is setup in El Salvador. One question I had was if this occurred 12 times before then what are they willing and attempting to do to make sure that this incident won’t happen again.

    Our government is full of corruption that has taken the country to the level that it is now. That’s why gangs are so involved in politics too. They know that the government has led us to a miserable economy. Many have been forced to migrate to other countries and others have been victims of the crime. It is clear when now the former presidents are found accuse of corruption, money laundering and illicit groupings. Our country can never leave the misery if we never have an honest government dedicated to help our people.

    Corruption is a huge problem in third world countries. The government that’s supposed to support the people ends up against them. People will march for change but nothing changes for them. The government sometimes won’t listen, and the people suffer due to their terrible management.
