Santo Domingo.- The U.S. Embassy will host a forum gang violence, drug cartels, organized crime, government corruption and all crimes which have undermined enforcement throughout the the Americas, slated for next Monday

The discussion will center the annual estimates of homicides in the Western Hemisphere, and the lack of trust on local authorities which has taken the sense of security away from the communities throughout the continent.

“How can we fight corruption and violence through social networks?”

In the emailed statement, the U.S. Embassy invites journalists to join the forum in Spanish staring 2pm Monday, with Luz Nagle, Stetson University law professor and former judge in Medellin, Colombia where she frequently handled cases involving drug lords drug cartel kingpins.

Professor Nagle explained to participants how social networks can be used to empower citizens to address local security threats, encourage transparency and reduce regional violence.

Special Programs director Luis Botello will moderate the discussion of the forum, which features a video in Spanish, and participants can follow the conversation on Twitter, using # nonviolence.

Mr Dominguez Brito, Ime in the middle of a property war with one of the organised gangs you have mentioned in your recent message to the fiscals ,telling them to act quickly to resume the status quo till a court decision. One Gregorio Dominguez Dominguez seems to be the front man ,with another named Winston Romaro, and also involved is builder, Kooki Silverio. i understand Winston was jailed for several months last year for property fraud, But the fiscals i complain to refuse to help, telling me to get another lawyer, i,ve already had 6 lawyers cheating me and wasting my time, while taking bribes from Gregorio Dominguez. to keep him out of court with his false documents. I have evidence.!!!!
Ive had many court cases with Victor Sanchez now dead, and his co conspirator Oscar Ovido gomez, Over the last 4 1/2 years, the judges ruled these people had no lawful claim and no rights whatsoever, while declaring all my papers in order. It now appears Winston Romaro claims to have

purchased from the proven fraudsters, and has passed on his fake claim to the company Franasyl, involved with Kuki Silverio.
Now a few weeks ago people claiming to work for Franasyl but are known ,to associate with Dominguez and Romaro ,Dug a trench in the sea defenses at Punta Rucia, deliberately flooding the beach road ,in front of my property, and part of my property, while at the same time pulling down and destroying my own fence, cutting my locked gates and painting over my name signs. Using the flooded road to disguise the crime, but i do have photo evidence.
A few days ago i found 5 employees of Franasyl in the process of building an 8 feet high steel fence to try to keep me out. i went with the local comandanti to accompany me ,as i have me as i received threats of violence from the mafiosa employees. I also have photos of men and the fence.!

The problem concerns you directly as the employees of Franasyl claim the fiscals wont help me, as they have direct orders from you as attorney general ,,
,as you are the main shareholder of the franasyl company. with Kuki Silverio
If this fact is true it makes you the biggest hypocrite in the D.R. concerning your recent letter about gangs of land thieves.
If it is not true then in your own interests you need to get involved to protect your good name!
I me not looking to harm anyone !
But i do have a large part of my life savings invested in this property, !
If you are involved this ....
Bad, publicity could be very harm full to your political standing .
I demand compensation if i give up the property. otherwise serious problems may develop !!!!
If you are not involved with these property thieves ,and they are just using your name as support in corruption and threats.

Marlon Browne...
.If people try to prevent my access to my lawfully owned property , and they attempt to beat me with fists as they threatened, i will have no choice but to retaliate violence against violence, some of them may well get injured in the conflict, so i want it understood i have reported the situation to the police at luperon, the tourist police at luperon and puerto plata, the police at Isabella are clearly taking bribes from franasyl as is the comandanti from Punta rucia and also the fiscal Elvis Garcia and his boss Elva Nunez are obviosly biased in favour of the Dominguez Franasyl mafiosa, who claim to have papers of ownership but refuse to let me look at any papers .and the franasyl goons claim they have the backing of Francisco Dominguez Brito .
which is why the fiscal office has overruled the several judges rulings in my favor over possession and ownership of the property.

But Francisco Dominguez himself, recently sent a ruling to all fiscals warning of land thieves and organised gangs. Giving orders to retain the status quoe until a court orders otherwise, so in the absence of official help i see no alternative but to fight the mafiosa alone and let God decide the outcome as he did with David and Goliath, and the Samson against the Philistines.

WTF do you need a forum for.

1. Just read their own newspapers, there are daily accounts of corruption that can be investigated.
2. Follow the money. Rico act. Any illiterate Dominican possessing millions of pesos is corrupt.

They are playing a game of look the other way. The claim they want to solve the problem of people getting piss off. The real reason is that people are getting fed up with the lies that they are being told and the idea of you are not allowed to know. For example 9/11 three building fall in there own foot print by two airplanes mathematical impossible but don't ask questions. Insecticide in your cornflakes but don't ask questions. Rat poison in your drinking water and tooth paste but don't ask questions. I think the people are starting to ask and it might get ugly.

This is the whitewash neo liberal way to fight crime or portray the illusion that your agencies are actually pretending to fight crime.

Does this mean the U.S. now endorses Wiki Leaks. Very good to see they want transparency, sure hope they don't have a big dollop of hypocrisy wrapped around it.

Hoy vimos en las calles de Santo Domingo algo que vemos en el cine de violencia, a lo Charles Bronson,
Una doctora fue asaltada y maltratada por dos delincuentes en una motocicleta, Un ciudadano que iba en su vehiculo al ver esto se desmonto, usando su pistola enfrento y mato un delincuente e hirio al otro que salio huyendo, el señor se monto en su vehiculo se fue.
Que hay que hacer con este ciudadano, someterlo a la justicia o condecorarlo? si esto se le preguntara al pueblo aterrorizado por la delincuencia seguro lo condecoran.
Pero esto es muy peligroso, se puede emular y socava las base de un pais democratico, donde es deber de las autoridades preservar el orden publico, vida y propiedad, aqui hay que tener su propio acueducto, planta de energia, seguridad, salud, y aplicar las justicia de manera privada, pero hay que pagar impuestos que otros se roban y disfrutan impunemente, protegidos por una banda de adulones INCONDICIONALES,que demuestra ausencia de criterio y cerebro.
