Quotes

...in reference to a woman who was recently raped in the city whilst walking alone, the mayor said that although he did not condone the man's actions, "women should watch where they're walking at six o'clock in the morning"
A photo-fit portrait of the paedophile - believed to be the same one striking repeatedly - showed him as being around 1.75m (5'9 ") tall, blond, corpulent but with a thin face, and in his late 30s."
"If anyone else had dumped their car on the street like this, it would have been towed away and impounded years ago" complain councillors from one of the opposition parties, BLOC-Compromís
Javier Urra stated: "Serial rapists, repeatedly reoffending paedophiles, psychopaths who have no sense of guilt and do not regret what they do and do not suffer along with their victims for the damage they have caused them, whom you know will continue to offend and who say they have paid for their crime with their prison sentence and see no reason not to commit similar ones in the future, should perhaps consider removing themselves from the world and that maybe suicide is the answer."
