University of Panama Suspends Administrative and Academic Work (Clown Arrested)

Protests & DemonstrationsUniversity authorities ordered a halt to administrative and academic work, but only for today, Friday May 25 at the Central Campus and in the Schools of Education, Public Administration and Business due to the protests, said the general secretary of the University of Panama, Miguel Angel Candanedo. Protesting university students closed all four lanes of Via Transistmica and the surrounding areas early this morning, prompting riot control officers of the National Police to respond. He also said as a result of the clashes one of the main doors of the institution was damaged, which could lead to other hazards, and for that reason they decided to close the school for the day. Furthermore, Candanedo said the school will only be closed today, Friday, and on Monday 28, both administrative and academic tasks should be resumed as normal. So far two university students have been arrested, one with his face painted white (like a clown) who tried to escape by climbing over the fence on campus, and one other who came from the Faculty of Public Administration.

Editor's Comment: I bet that guy who they pulled down from the fence - who will now be spending a few nights in a Panamanian jail - would like to rethink the wisdom of painting his face as a "clown" before leaving the house this morning. I think he's looking at the possibility of 30 days in jail for blocking a road in protest. The government of Panama passed that law in order to use it against these guys.

First off from this picture this idiot kid seems to be runng up the fence into the barbed or razor wire , cant see.
Maybe on drugs or drunk,who knows.
Throw the little b.....rds into the jail for a year, sorry, but blocking the highways hereis not acceptable, the traffic is unbearable now in the day here and punks like this are better for society in jail. F ....em
