Human nature.


Yesterday at 13,00 o'clock. Peruvian time, while I had lunch, I watched and listened trough a international news retrasmissión (Channel 7 Peru-Tv), a video engraved by some fortuitous journalist, in relation to a brutal event happened in an rural area of some central american country. By the rapidity, I could not grasp additional data. I ask excuses because of it. Scene I: A rural young female denounces before the local police, to his former husband, to hound her and to threaten to kill her it she did not return with him. Scene II: 3 guards confront the apparently young peaceful peasant in their residence…they talk separated so alone by a weak wall of wood. The polices all overweighted coax the young rural man to accompany them to the jail to take him statements. Before the refusal of the peasant the polices tried to reduce him by force. Scene III: The peasant extracts a white weapon and strikes stabs in the neck and the torax of a police killing him instantly, he pursues to another, knifes him and leaves him badly wounded. When by finalizing to a third police he was shot and died by the last police. A superbloody scene and very fast. Reflections:
a) Says Machiavelli that any man of the world -be which he be his situation he values instinctively 3 things: his work, his woman and his liberty. He will fight for them. In this case to intend to snatch him his free will, his liberty, his well but prized, obliged to take additional precautions.
b) The polices of New York have certain own guidelines ”if the subject is disarmed you must approach to him with a weapon, if he has white arms approach to him with a gun, if he has a gun you must carry a submachine gun”...
c) Never send polices men out of form or with excess of weigh to stop young individuals
d) Try to persuade to the exhaustion with words, to listen him a lot, alone if he does not understand or does not he want to understand, rush to him taking precautions and assuming comparative advantages..

La naturaleza humana

Ayer a las 13,00 Hora peruana, mientras almorzaba, observé y escuché via retrasmisión internacional de noticias (Canal 7 Peru-TV), un video grabado por algún periodista fortuito, en relacion a un suceso brutal acaecido en un area rural de algun pais centroamericano. Por la rapidéz, no pude captar datos adicionales. Pido disculpas por ello. Escena I:Una joven campesina denuncia ante la policia local, a su ex esposo, de acosarla y amenazar con matarla si no regresaba con el. Escena II: 3 guardias confrontan al joven, un campesino lugareño muy tranquilo y sosegado, en su domicilio…dialogan separados tan solo por un muro de madera. Los policias, todos con sobrepeso instan al joven campesino a acompañarlo a la cárcel para tomarle declaraciones. Ante la negativa de este, los policias intentan reducirlo a la fuerza. Escena III: El campesino extrae un arma blanca y asesta cuchillazos en el cuello y el tórax a un policia matándolo instantáneamente, persigue a otro, lo acuchilla y lo deja malherido. Cuando esta por ultimar a un tercero es baleado y muerto por el último policia. Una escena supersangrienta y muy rápida. Reflexiones:
a) Dice Maquiavelo que cualquier hombre del mundo -sea cual sea su situación valora instintivamente 3 cosas: su trabajo, su mujer y su libertad. En este caso pretender arrebatarle su libre albedrio, su libertad, su bien mas preciado obligaba a tomar precauciones adicionales.
b) Los policias de New York tienen tras de si ciertas directivas propias ”si el sujeto esta desarmado acercate a el con un arma, si el tiene arma blanca acercate con una pistola, si tiene una pistola porta una metralleta”...
c) Nunca enviar a policias desentrenados o con sobrepeso a detener a individuos jóvenes
d) Persuadir hasta el cansancio con palabras, escucharlo mucho, solo si este no entiende o no quiere entender, apresarlo tomando precauciones y asumiendo ventajas comparativas...
