Editor's Comment: Killing your rival and hacking the body into parts and pieces simply is not the Panamanian "style" of doing things. One of these is bad enough, but two in two weeks, in the same general area and using the same kinds of bags for example, points strongly to the hypothesis that these killings were done by the same people, and that whoever was calling the shots was not Panamanian. The "internationalization" of youth gangs is a theme that has largely missed Panama, until now. The government of Panama needs to clamp down on this shit hard, right now. They do not have the initiative and they need to regain and retake the lead. Right now the police authorities are simply going from body to body, scooping up the remains, and trying to figure out what happened. In short - approaching the problem from a traditional law enforcement point of view. Guys - the situation isn't normal, so you need to do things that are not normal in response. It's really that simple.
