NOW THERE ARE A LOT LESS TOURIST GOING TO CR AND AN EVER GROWING NUMBER OF CRIMIALS NOW WITH THE DOWN TURN OF THE WORLDS TOURISM....MEAN'S YOUR AT AN ALL TIME HIGH RISK OF BEING A 2009 CRIME VICTIM RIGHT NOW IN COSTA RICA....!
YES YOU READ THE GLOWING REPORTS BY CR OFFICIALS, REAL ESTATE AND TRAVEL AGENTS OF COSTA RICA'S LOW CRIME RATES IS.... TOTALLY FALSE...!
POLITICAL OPPONENT RICARDO TOLEDO WHO'S HOME WAS ATTACKED AND 2 PEOPLE WHERE KILLED AND HIS WIFE BEATEN. ......CR OFFICALS NOW ADMITT THEIR CRIME HAS SOARED OUT OF CONTROL AND THEY MUST COMPLETELY OVER HAUL THEIR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM FROM TOP TO BOTTOM....
WELCOME TO THE REAL COSTA RICA........ WHERE THE REST OF US HAVE TO TRY TO LIVE AND SURVIE............ THIS REVELATION COMES JUST MONTHS AFTER AN NATIONAL ELECTION WHERE OCSAR NOR RICARDO AND NO OTHER LEADING ELECTED OFFICAL EVEN MENTIONED CR'S SERIOUS CRIME WAVE LET ALONE HAD A ANTI-CRIME PLATFORM.... THAT SIMLPY MEANS THE POTITICAL ELITE MUST BE LIVING ON ANOTHER PLANET TO HAVE MISSED THE NEWS COVERAGE THE US STATE DEPT WARNINGS OF RISING CRIME AND ALL THE BABBED WIRE AND BURGULAR BARS THAT COVER ALMOST EVERY HOME AND BUSINESS IN SAN JOSE THEY HAVE PRACTICED....HEAR NO CRIME SEE NO CRIME .... MUCH TO LONG.
WHAT A JOKE....FOLKS ...... AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO BELIEVE THE LIE AND OFFICAL CR REPORTS FAKE STOIES FROM CR REALTORS AND TRAVEL AGENCIES ABOUT THE USA HAVING A HIGHER CRIME RATE THAN COSTA RICA.... WELL, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL MAKE ANOTHER FINE CR POLITICAN, POLICE CHIEF OR EVEN A SUPREME COURT JUDGE IN COSTA REAL. ....NO 10-20-LIFE FOR GUN CRIMES HERE... AND NO FEAR FOR CRIMINALS....NO PROLBEMO
EXAMPLE...THEY HAD TO CLOSE SAN JOSE'S INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR A DAY BECAUSE CRIMINALS STOLE THE MAIN CABLES FROM THE CONTROL TOWER TO THE AIR FEILD RADAR EQUIPMENT. ALMOST HALF OF ALL THE TV, TELEPHONE, .INTERNET AND EVEN THE ELECTRIC POWER LINES FAILURES IN COSTA RICA ARE CAUSED BY CRIMINALS STEALING THESE HOT WIRES AND CABLES RIGHT OFF THE POLES DAILY ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO SELL FOR SCRAPE METAL AND ARE GETTING AWAY WITH IT..........IMAGE THAT......AMERICAN TOURIST ....?
GO TO A LOCAL SUPER MARKET AND SEE ALL THE ARMED GAURDS WITH 12 GAGE SHOT GUNS WALKING AROUND IN FRONT OF THE STORES AND PARKING LOTS ....MOTORCYCLE TRAFFIC COPS ARMED WITH SUB-MACHINE GUNS READY.......... MAKING SHOPPING A REAL ADVENTURE.......THEN WHO YOU GOING TO BELIEVE.
THE SAD TRUTH IS COSTA RICANS ALSO DESERVE WHAT THEY HAVE NOW ....A CRIMINAL WAR ON THE COSTA RICAN SOCIETY AND VISITORS WHILE THEIR POLICE, COURTS AND ELECTED OFFICALS SIT SAFELY ON THE SIDE LINES WONDERING WHO WILL WIN ..........BUT THEY DO NOT REALLY CARE SO LONG AS THE CRIME GAME DOES TOUCH THEM OR THEIR FAMILY...... NOW CRIMINALS ARE SO BRAVE BECAUSE OF TOTAL FAILURE OF CRIMINAL ENFORCEMENT IN COSTA RICA IT HAS COME HOME TO THEM TOO. ..THAT'S WHERE ALL THE NEW POLICE FUNDING EFFORTS WILL BE PUT IN THEIR NEIGBHOODS TO KEEP THEM SAFE FROM THE REAL COSTA RICA.
AS MANY AMERICANS HAVE SAID FOR YEARS .... AND ITS TRUE
THE MORE YOU KNOW ABOUT COSTA RICA THE LESS YOU LIKE IT....!
Costa Rica Crime... is out of control when the police start ....Robbing you on the street, that’s what happen to me in June of 2006 as a American tourist in a motorcycle cops traffic stop at 2:00 am while returning home from a sat. night in the downtown metro in the shadows of the COSTA RICAN SUPREME COURT HOUSE right in front of the TICO TIMES OFFICES. It is happening here in San Jose, Costa Rica almost daily.
I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT A SIMPLE BRIBE HERE THEY ACTUALLY HAND CUFFED ME BEHIND MY BACK THEN SEARCHED ONLY MY WALET TOOK ABOUT $ 200.00 IN COLONES BUT LEFT MY US DOLLORS THEN LET ME GO. THEY ROBBED ME IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES AND I WAS ON MY WAY.
PRESIDENT OSCARARIAS ...GO'S TO WASHINGTON DC, USA TO LOBBY THE WORLD TO DISARM WHILE HIS OWN COUNTRY OF COSTA RICA IS EXPERIENCING A MAJOR STREET CRIME WAVE WITH CRIMIALS TAKING OVER ENTIRE AREAS OF SAN JOSE ..........THAT TAXI DRIVERS AND THE POLICE WILL NOT GO INTO.....! HELLO OSCAR ARE YOU HERE...?
LATEST CRIME WAVE MAY LOWER CR PROPERTY VALUES USA DEVELOPERS AND OWNERS HERE ARE DEEPLY INVESTED IN CR PROPERTIES AND DO NOT WANT NEW BUYERS SCARED OFF WITH CRIME WAVE NEWS REPORTS REACHING THE MARKET PLACE IN THE USA.
MR. ARIAS ....HAS FAILED TO PROPERLY ADDRESS OR EVEN REALLY DISCUSS THE...... CRIME WAR HIS PEOPLE IN HIS OWN COUNTRY IS EXPERIENCING IN 2007..... AND THE VISITING TOURIST HAVE BECOME THE CRIMIALS NUMBER ONE TARGET...
OSCAR NEED'S A.... WAR ON CRIME IN COSTA RICA ......BEFORE HE GO'S FOR THE WORLD DISARMAMENT VACATION TRAVEL PLAN HE HAS BEEN ON.
OSCAR......SAVE COSTA RICA ........FIRST .......THEN............ SAVE THE WORLD.
HE NEVER ANNOUNCED THE NEW 500 TOURIST POLICE COSTA RICA JUST PRESSED INTO SERVICE FOR JAN.2007 AND WHY THIS WAS NECESSARY ..... OSCAR DOES NOT REALIZE TO MANY OF US THIS IS JUST 500 MORE GUYS WITH A GUN AND A BADGE THAT WILL ROB US WHILE HANG CUFFED.... HE MUST DO A LOT MORE THAN TALK.
COSTA RICA IS A COUNTRY ABOUT HALF THE SIZE OF FLORIDA WITH ABOUT 3 TO 4 MILLION PEOPLE IF YOU COUNT THE ILLEGALS FROM ALL THE OTHER LATINO COUNTRIES THAT ARE THERE MUCH LIKE THE USA IT'S A SERIOUS PROBLEM AND RESULTS IN A HIGH CRIME RATE
Costa Rica has about 5 driffrent police forces that wear driffrent uniforms .................. WARNING...DARK BLUE TRAFFIC POLICE UNIFORMS ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED. THEY ARE REAL POLICE AND THEY WILL USE THEIR GUN AND BADGE TO REALLY ROB YOU.,,,,NEVER SAY ANYTHING TO THEM EXCEPT ....TAKE ME TO YOUR STATIONO...!
The CURRENT 2006 general crime and violent crime has sky rocketed here as more and more well funded America tourist have descended on Costa Rica for vacations, real estate purchases and other investments over the past 5 years. As those Americans spend their money the Costa Rican public ends up with more money and property for the thief’s to steal as well and crimes against them are even worst and more violent than on the tourist. Some of the criminals that want to get their share of the gold are policemen. Almost every Tico (man) and especially the Tica’s (women) have been a victim of criminal’s or had a close call in the past 5 years.
Now it is simply NOT SAFE IN COSTA RICA any more. SO WHEN THEY SAY ITS NO WORST THAN IN THE USA ....DO NOT BELIEVE IT.....it is much , MUCH WORST...!
The best businesses to start up in Costa Rica is Security locks, alarms, burglar bars, concertina and barb wire erectors as these services and products are top sellers and in very high demand. Armed guards with pump shot guns is also big business at all large shopping areas and super markets and the banks have so many with airport type scanners to get in the banks front door. I personally have not seen so much armed security since Vietnam, its actually shocking to find the POLICE HAVE NOW JOINED THE CRIMIALS HERE.
IT IS REALLY SAD TO SEE.... The homes and business are simply covered over with so much security devices of wire and bars that the citizens here are living in jails while the criminals are roaming free on the streets just like it was 30 years ago in Vietnam , but there was a real war going on there then.
So even though the Costa Rican Armed Froces was ban in 1948 Costa Rica is really in a state of war with their crime wave . But seems to simply disregard it and they certainly do not talk about a war on their crime. The justice system has long been poorly managed in all of latin America. But in Costa Rica with few jails and their system of justice is so liberal they let even the harden criminals out so fast the police see no reason to dirty their hands arresting them.
Auto related theft and accidents are off the charts and no one but no one parks their auto's in front their home over nite on the street they must be in a locked garage. Even in the day time all cars any where are parked only where there is parking security guards present you must pay to watch your car or it will not be there or damaged by break in when you get back.
This gives the Costa Rica Police a lot more time to figure out the best methods to actually rob the poeple whom have the money and USA tourist are high on their list, believe it or not. This liberal justice system the Costa Ricans are so proud of allows for the perfect haven for all criminals from all the surrounding latino countries as well as it provides for low court time, no jail time, police that will not arrest them and now the streets belong to the crimials 24 hours a day and now some of the policemen have joined them.
WHEN YOU DO CALL THE POLICE YOU WILL NEED TO GET SOME PAPER AND PEN FOR THEM TO WRITE DOWN THE CRIME REPORT AS THEY NOT ONLY NOT HAVE NO FORMS THEY MAY NOT EVEN HAVE PEN AND PAPER....BUT A NAPKIN WILL DO AND MANY CRIME REPORTS ARE FILED OUT ON THEM.... ITS NO PROBLEM AS I AM SURE THEY NEVER TURN THEM IN AWAY.
SO TOURIST HERE ARE EASY TARGETS BECAUSE THEY ARE IN CR FOR ONLY A SHORT TIME AND DO NOT TO SPEND THEIR VACATION FILING POLICE REPORTS FOR CRIMES THE POLICE AND THE COURTS WILL DO NOTHING ABOUT ANY THING ABOUT ANY WAY.... TRUST ME IT IS A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME TO FILE A CRIMIAL REPORT AS IN MOST CASES THEY DO NOT EVEN HAVE A CRIME REPORT FORM ......AND WILL USUALLY ASK YOU FOR A PEICE OF PAPER TO START THE CLAIM REPORT ON....!
This also leads to very low crime statistics that the goverment officials take great pride in and falsely report in their offical statements and tourist guides.
DURING THEIR LAST ELECTION NOT ONE PARTY NOR CANIDATE RAN OR EVEN MENTIONED THEIR ESCALATING CRIME PROBLEMS INCLUDING ..OSCAR ARIAS.
WARNING..THE CRIMIALS ARE ALSO ON VACATION WITH YOU IN COSTA RICA
The US State Dept. and the US Embassy here have seriously under reported the crime wave that is sweeping over Costa Rica because of the close relations the USA is trying to maintain in the world today with all countries and the pending CAFTA that the Costa Ricans doesn't seem to want and the USA CITIZENS DOES IT UNDERSTAND EITHER..... ?
REST ASSURED ... AS A USA CITIZEN.... IN COSTA RICA ....YOU ARE A TARGET FOR ALL LEVELS OF CRIME AND FRAUD AND WHEN YOU BECOME A VICTIM THE POLICE AND JUSTICE SYSTEM ARE OF NO HELP AND WILL TAKE MORE OF YOUR TIME AND MONEY WITH NO RESULTS IN PROTECTING YOU.
SO PREVENTION IS THE KEY AND THE FIRST STEP IS TO FIND A SAFER PLACE TO TRAVEL TO..................................................MORE ON THAT LATER
TILL THE COSTA RICAN GOVERNMENT DOES MORE TO PROTECT TOURIST AND THEIR CITEZEN IN CR....THEN WE WILL REPORT THAT TO YOU AS WELL...TILL THEN...
