    wait – this is for the entire country of Colombia of 20 some million? What? Hell my city reaches that homicide rate in 5 year clumps.


    However I did scan Google hit lists about Columbia and one of them came up with the idea that “inequality “is a very serious problem in Columbia and it ranks number 7 on someone’s “inequality “scale. I also doubt that police enforcers are kind you’re caring there too people of color or people without means.

    I have a good friend who lived in Colombia for some years.

    He speaks the language. His wife is from Colombia, and has family there. He had great pre-existing government and business contacts before moving from the USA.

    He ran a small nice hotel/cafe, and a decent sized cattle ranch.

    The corruption, crime, and human rights issues became overwhelming. They now live in Florida.

    Is that really much of an improvement?

    I suspect that gives you some context as to just how bad it was :-)
