And the question again is what are the security guard for in those commercial plaza. Jumbo of San Pedro is not a very safe place for shopping because their security personal are more concern about a shopper stealing a banana than actually protecting the lives of their clients. That is why I always prefer to shop at IBERIA super market because they got covered parking with smalls access entry and exits.

It is too early to surmise the killings were about environmental issues. There may have been another agenda for the murders ?

I always remember a scene from 'Fargo' where they run a guy through a wood chipper. The mind is a strange organ, I can't imagine why that thought flitted through it.

How old are the en captured ? If young men . I would say they were hired . There are lots od young men in the DR . That will gun down any body for a mere 5 hundred bucks these days . In fact young men or even teen agers . Are the biggest market place for cartel killers . There s a strong chance that they were hired by somebody that works with or are related to cartel members . And looking for a simple assassination . Did any body bother to stop two teens on a motor bike after the shooting ?
No . They always just roll right through check points . How ever . It does sound like the shooters were caught , hopefully That is . Or the real shooters will never be found . Still riding around two on a bike and looking for trouble . As usual .
