The anger is cutting across class lines, because kidnapping, robbery and murder affect rich and poor alike. This is the first event ever thatÂs united rich and poor in Venezuela. The shantytowns of Caracas are some of the most dangerous places on earth. The wealthy and middle class, meanwhile, are regular targets of opportunity for the same thieves and extorters and kidnappers and killers. ItÂs mostly cops doing it, the very officials who are supposed to protect the people. The cops, to remind the people that they donÂt see protecting them as in their interest, have actually shot into a protesting crowd and killed a photographer, completely validating the crowdÂs anger at the police.
