Breaking: Venezuela army and police can no longer be prosecuted for killing protesters

The executive order, signed by the President, was published today. Here’s the image:

What that says, in a nutshell, is that the law has been altered and that from now on, any member of the armed forces or a member of the police force who kills or injures somebody “in compliance with their duties and using a weapon or other method of defence” cannot be prosecuted afterwards.
Which is a pretty amazing piece of police state legislation and it’s all true. Except for one thing. It has in fact been passed as law today in Peru and not in Venezuela, so you’ll hear precisely fuck all about it up North. More on the story in Peru’s El Comercio, here
