It is a very sad case, which happened ..the evening of April 29.
A group of brown skin young men , ages 14 to 20, had brutally attacked a senior couple(him 73, her70) , on the beach between L.Cabana and Amsterdam Manor.
The Police is pleading with the public/newspaper to help apprehend this 'bunch'.
The man received severe trauma , is still in critical condition in the hospital.
The incident started with the group grabbing the lady"s purse.
<<<<<<The next article in that same diario....is showing how a terrible situation is becoming an ever increasing problem..."wild uncontrolled young people".
It is my opinion, that these young people are those brought in as young kids by the immigrant parents(hotel workers)...they are basically left to their own ...as the parents are struggling to make a living.
As such, those of same nationality/background are joining into gangs/violence.
Aruba, is undergoing a terrible situation, now that employment is becoming a problem, along with guns and drugs...
The government is SLOW in waking up, but there is a sign of realization that something must be done.....now.
