This is what the last administration (and previous administrations) brought to Panama. Placate the thugs and the bums and the criminals, but don't bother actually helping them. Give them their subsistence living, but don't bother teaching them anything. Crowd them all into the worst slums in town, and don't bother giving them tradeable skills that allow them to earn money and a better life. Then give them lies and promises when reelection time rolls around.

The current administration needs to step up and address poverty and crime in Panama. One goes with the other. Stop grandstanding for headlines with massage parlor busts, and make some changes that actually mean something. It takes a lot more work, but the payoff is far greater than a moment in the spotlight.

Why not create jobs that provide a future, an education system that teaches, and get rid of this terrible entitlement system that encourages people to be uneducated, unskilled, and dependant on the government.

Every Panamanian that I know sends their kids to private schools, because the public schools are useless.

I've had employees quit, then beg me to fire them, so they get paid more, and paid faster. That's the attitude that permeates this country.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Mr. Cohen. He's the victim of a failed ideology and an environment of greed and corruption.
