Why is CENTRAL AMERICA the MOST VIOLENT region in the WORLD? – VisualPolitik EN

Could it be that the most dangerous region
in the world is trying to improve itself? Imagine that you’re sitting quietly at a
restaurant or cafeteria and, suddenly, you begin to hear gunshots a few meters away. You’d choose an empty stomach and opt for
a quick escape, wouldn’t you? Well, unfortunately these kinds of situations
are common in many Central American cities. Cities where security is noticeable for its
absence. In 2018, 42 of the 50 most violent cities
in the world were in Latin America, and of these, two were in Honduras, one in Guatemala
and one in El Salvador. In 2017 alone, more than 14,500 homicides
were registered in Central America. The vast majority, more than 90% of them,
happened in three countries known as the Northern Triangle: El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Chilling, to say the least. So why is violence so common in this part
of the world? What is driving these high crime rates? Has Central America always been a violent
region? Let’s find out. (INTRO) Here’s a question for you: Have you ever
noticed how curious the map of the American continent is? Just look at it for a second, Central America
is a bridge between South America and North America. And not only metaphorically, but also literally. And this has consequences: The fact that Central America is a bridge
has turned it into the largest illicit goods highway in the world. For goods produced in South America. We’re mostly talking about cocaine. No less than 90% of all the cocaine that enters
the United States, the world’s largest market for the drug, passes through Central America. But don’t think this is the only illegal
activity based there. Not at all. Human trafficking; trafficking of illegal
immigrants and minors, is also booming in this region. And as you can imagine, all of these activities
go hand in hand with organized crime; criminal organizations that control, manage and fight
each other for dominance of all these businesses. We’re talking about a huge industry, and
a highly structured one: with managers, administrators, lawyers, corporate advisors, diversification,
investment strategies, etc. An industry that is increasingly becoming
involved in developing a presence in Central America. Check it out. (AUDIO: Mexican cartels are moving 90% of
their activities to Central America, according to research. – Agencia EFE) The increasing pressure from the state in
Mexico in recent years has made this type of mafia want to settle in countries with
weaker and less vigilant governments. And you know what? The truth is that these groups, these macro-crime
companies have managed to take over much of Central America. (MEXICO, CRIME EXPORTER TO CENTRAL AMERICA) Mexico – or rather the Mexican cartels – are
slowly becoming the leaders, the biggest drug business owners in Latin America. Of course, they’ve been competing with Colombian
groups for quite some time. The Mexican cartels already control the majority
of the main routes for transporting illegal goods. And that pretty much means controlling all
of Central America. Now, let’s put ourselves in the shoes of these
great bosses for a second. Imagine that you’re one of them. What’s the fastest way to control the Central
American territory? How can you settle in and dominate this region? Exactly, a good option would be to establish
alliances with the native criminal groups, those that were there before you. Groups that have the necessary infrastructure,
contacts and knowledge of the territory that you need. We’re talking about groups that have a single
philosophy: work with whoever gives you the most cash. This is hardly surprising. We all know the power of the dollar. But how and why did Central America become
so ripe for exploitation by the Mexican drug traffickers? To understand that we need to go back to the
90s. You see, the key moment, when the players
changed, happened between 1991 and 1993, when the Medellín Cartel suffered its greatest
defeat. Pablo Escobar’s fall, as well as that of
the cartel’s main bosses, also meant losing the huge influence and power they had in Central
America, which they’d gained thanks to their alliances with local groups, who worked directly
for them. And that was the Mexican groups’ great window
of opportunity, which of course they took advantage of by storming into Central America
with the objective of completely controlling that important bridge, which connects the
production centers with the consumption centers. But surely some of you may be thinking. Just a second, Simon, there are several different
cartels in Mexico, didn’t that pose a problem? Yes, indeed, it did. After the Mexicans arrived, Central America
became a kind of battlefield between the different Mexican cartels who fought to control the
transport routes. And that’s precisely one of the reasons
that violence in Central America increased dramatically until finally each cartel claimed
their own niche territory. You could say that Mexican cartels became
major exporters of violence and crime to their southern neighbors. Check out the case of Honduras for example. (CHART) You see, the power struggles between Mexican
cartels and local groups to increase their influence and gain control of the business
explain much of the increased crime during those years. Now, let’s put all big numbers aside. Let’s focus on the streets. How exactly do all these battles between cartels
and Central American criminal groups affect the safety of regular citizens? Listen up. (WHEN VIOLENCE DOESN’T FIND AN ENEMY) We’ve already showed you that the Central
American North Triangle has the highest crime rates in the world. That’s why we ask an essential question,
is there a solution? What does the region need to achieve social
peace? Well, the truth is that this goal seems very,
very complicated, why? Check this out… (AUDIO: Honduran President’s Brother Is
Found Guilty of Drug Trafficking. – The New York Times) (AUDIO: Honduran President Is Accused of Drug
Conspiracy. Prosecutors say drug proceeds were allegedly
used to support Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández’s 2013 election WSJ) (AUDIO: Son of ex-Honduran president Porfirio
Lobo gets 24 years for U.S. drug charge. Reuters) (AUDIO: Former El Salvador President Saca
gets two-year prison term for bribery. – Reuters) Against such a backdrop of corruption, institutionalized
drug-trafficking and other despicable actions, who would put up their hand to fight crime? Especially if crime itself is in charge! If the highest spheres of power in Central
America have such close ties, very close, with the great criminals, how on earth is
anyone going to fight them? And it’s not that they can’t, but that
they don’t want to. It’s a matter of incentives. No one, absolutely no one wants to kill the
goose that lays the golden eggs. However, just a second. Because despite this harsh reality, the truth
is that in recent years, Central America has experienced a gradual reduction in homicide
rates. This has led many politicians to stand up. Of course, in many cases, it wasn’t thanks
to the government, but in spite of it. Let’s take a look at El Salvador. For example, in El Salvador in 2018, they
had 15% fewer homicides than in the previous year, but even so, it was still a very high
number: 3,340 homicides in one year in a country of less than six and a half million inhabitants. El Salvador is the country with the highest
homicide rate in the most dangerous region on the planet. So we could say it’s the most dangerous
country in the world. But even though the country has encouraged
it, the truth is that this history of violence comes from way back, long before the Mexican
cartels ever set foot in Central America. We’ve talked about them for a while on VisualPolitik. The Maras are dangerous criminal gang member
groups, many based in Los Angeles, that are dedicated mainly to drug and weapons trafficking,
money laundering, immigrant trafficking and prostitution. Since the 1960s, they’ve been one of El
Salvador’s greatest security challenges. The Mara Salvatrucha or MS13 and Barrio 18
are the two main branches which, as expected, often fight each other, and have been trying
to control the Salvadoran territory for many years in order to better carry out their illegal
activities. It has been this fight over the territory
that has spread pain and suffering all over El Salvador. And of course, these maras are still fully
active. So why is it that crime has decreased in recent
years? Well… take a look at this… (AUDIO: Drug traffickers use maras and street
gangs to dominate Central America. – Excelsior) Yes, as you can see, paradoxically this alliance
could explain much of the reduction in homicides. Why? Well… The answer is complex, but simplifying it
a bit, we could say that currently the maras are acting as branches of the most powerful
Mexican cartels, such as the Sinaloa Cartel or Los Zetas. Interestingly, this alliance could be causing
part of these gangs’ forces to be operating in wider fields, protecting the Mexican cartels’
activities, and thus moving them away from the streets. Let’s say there are bigger businesses than
extorting money from the corner store. And that’s not the only change. In addition, Mexican cartels have noticed
that the Maras are tremendously effective in controlling cities and infusing the greatest
possible terror. So, they are recruiting troops and moving
to Mexico to support their activities and to train their own people. Basically they are enlisting them. That way, Mexicans have introduced the maras
into the large-scale international drug trafficking business. But how exactly are the gangs helping the
Mexican cartels? Well, obviously not for the common good. They are teaching them the most horrible,
cruel and ruthless ways of treating their adversaries. These are techniques they are moving to and
implementing in Mexico itself. I think that now you can understand better
why crime has decreased in recent years. And yes, unfortunately, it has had little
to do with governments or with the US’s plan for Central America, and more with the
dynamics of the crime industry. Surely at this point many may be thinking
that this is getting out of hand, right? Maras and cartels collaborating, governments
bought by and backing criminal interests, ineffective and corrupt security forces, bribed
courts… Against such a backdrop, do you think that
El Salvador and Central America in general have any chance to escape this vicious circle? What can Salvadorans do to stop being the
most dangerous country in the world? Well, I’m sorry to say that it doesn’t look
like an easy task. But who knows, perhaps the arrival of this
man, who’s very well-known for leading his government through tweets, can make a step
forward by showing that one of the problems of Central America, and perhaps the most important
one, is that there’s a lack of political will. (AUDIO: Nayib Bukele, an Outsider Candidate,
Claims Victory in El Salvador Election. – The New York Times) [TEXT: And here, on June 1st, we’ll build
the best government in our country’s history.] Bukele came to power early in 2019 with the
key promise of making El Salvador a safer and less corrupt country. Will he achieve it? Only time will tell, but for now, it looks
like he’s taking decisive steps to do so. Of course, with Latin American politicians… Well, no one ever knows. In this region the forecasts, especially if
they’re optimistic, aren’t worth very much. (AUDIO: El Salvador launches anti-corruption
commission, inspired by Guatemala. – Reuters) And be careful because corruption isn’t
a minor problem. In this region, fighting corruption is a necessary
step to break the link between power and crime. Well, having reached this point, we’ve seen
why politicians can’t take the credit, even if homicide rates are decreasing; we’ve
seen that nowadays there’s little room for hope in Honduras and that El Salvador could
be facing a great opportunity for real change. However, in this delicate balance of crime
and power we need to include another Central American country. A country that isn’t part of the Northern
Triangle, but which has recently seen a dramatic increase in violence. In many cases, a very different violence,
because drug-trafficking isn’t the only disease that plagues Central America. Listen up. [TEXT: I want them to leave the country. I want them to go to jail.] (NICARAGUA, THE END OF A DREAM?) We’ve talked about this in several videos. In Nicaragua there’s a phenomenon that doesn’t
happen in many other Latin American countries, that is the use of violence as a form of political
control. It’s a scenario similar to the one found
in Venezuela, and which has suddenly ended the myth that Nicaragua was the exception;
the only safe country in the most dangerous region in the world. For example, in 2017 Nicaragua only had seven
homicides per 100,000 inhabitants, while at the same time in Honduras it was 40, it was
51 in El Salvador and 28 in Guatemala. The difference is remarkable, but that doesn’t
really mean Nicaragua is a safe place to live. Time has shown us that. The Sandinista National Liberation Front,
the ruling party, has completely penetrated the state power agencies, politicizing them
by getting like-minded people into key positions and using true paramilitary groups to repress
the population. Nicaraguan tyrant Daniel Ortega has literally
begun employing thugs to do the dirtiest work in the name of the police and the army during
the protests. And yes, from a political and institutional
point of view, this is one of the worst decisions a leader can make. (AUDIO: Alarm rises for a wave of crimes with
viciousness that bear the seal of the paramilitaries of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua. – Infobae) (AUDIO: In 2018, violence rates skyrocketed
through the brutal repression of civil protesters by President Daniel Ortega’s regime. InsightCrime) Because as soon as a government begins using
irregular force to repress the masses, they create conditions that legalize and normalize
violence and give impunity at a general level. You could say the floodgates of crime are
opened with the first blow. We’ve seen it in Venezuela and we’re starting
to see it in Nicaragua. Anyway, as you can see, crime, corruption
and a lack of safety are the great evils that are hanging over Central America. In many cases, if not in all, this is happening
with the approval and complicity of the political powers. We wanted to make this video to better show
you exactly what is happening in this region of the world, the most dangerous region on
the planet, in terms of violence. As well as to show what is hiding behind the
decreasing number of homicides that have been seen in recent years. So, now, it’s your turn: Do you think that safety in Central America
is an impossible dream? Can the region really get rid of the curse
of drug-trafficking and organized crime? Leave your answers in the comments. So I really hope you enjoyed this video, please

  1. So if the violence is mostly located in 3 cities and 3 countries, why did map focus on Panama City and Panama? Although, not void of problems or issues, Panama is not one the most violent places.

  2. So Trump was right. Basically what you are saying Central America is the most dangerous place on Earth and mostly because of Mexican Drug Cartels and corrupt politicians that want to smuggle drugs into the US… But you call Trump racist for trying to make border more secure… Which one is it? You can't both have your cake and eat it you hypocrites.

  3. The only solution is an USa military occupation, treating all organized crime and corruption like ISIS, and rebuild each nation one at a time over a long period of time like what the USA did in Korea and Japan

  4. i am getting sick of the dysfunctional sphere of latin america- the world needs to intervene and improve the conditions.

  5. I've been to San Salvador and the city seemed like a nice place. I stayed in a usual neigbourhood and went to a few bad areas but I didn't really feel any danger there. Is the capital the safest place in the country? Which town is the most dangerous?

  6. In democratic system, there is no way you can stop the drug trafficking and corruption. In order to do that you need social revolution and reform. I do not think the western way of politics will change the present situation.

  7. Quite crazy that you are talking about central America and visualizing Panama, nothing against Panama but they don´t consider themself Central Americans

  8. Simon, this episode ignores Costa Rica when casting shade on Central America. I've only been there once several years ago, but it is full of Merican and Euro expat retirees which should tell you that it is a good place to be. They don't have an actual army because they don't need one, Uncle will put a carrier battle group/ Marine Exp Landing Force off of their shores within 3 days if anybody screws with them, the airborne guys would have been on the ground a day before.

  9. End the Merida initative $$$$$ to help fight the made up "WAR ON DRUGS",this will END corruption of Politicians in the US and Government officials such as Federales,Police and Army in Mexico, Central,S.America.
    Bring justice to Mexico,jail Obama,Holder and the entire DOJ that were under the last US administration
    FAST AND FURIOUS will never be forgotten,100's of 10000's killed in Mexico because of it.oooooH Don't forget about Brain Terry

  10. It's those Aztec genes. The Spanish were foolish to engage in miscegenation instead of extermination. What a nice place Latin America would be if the European component of their population wasn't held back by the presence of Amerindian and African genes.

  11. Ok, Simon…so the USA is not relevant in this discussion? The support that their government gave to guerrillas in especially the 80"s who also trafficked in drugs? Have you forgotten about the Iran-Contra Affaire? So now i have to guess that Oliver North and others within the US intelligence community or government weren't aware that the Contra's in Nicaragua which they supported, also trafficked drugs. Further more, the US sanctioning any government not willing to be subject to the Monroe Doctrine. Not only in Central-, but also in South-America? You have painted a nice picture, nevertheless, it's not the whole story..

  12. Age old problems that humans clearly cannot solve…curious to see what AI will come up with. The bigger picture is too great for 1 nation. E.g. fractional reserve banking, established elite drug control, cocaine importing agencies, 90% supplied from Afghanistan and small countries at the mercy of all this.

  13. Us sapport cokingangs in hundooras and they overthro democratic gov and a mfya gang leder in charg now US IS THE PROBLAM

  14. In Honduras the issue is also the Oligarchic families that have a strangle hold on the country, those few families that have carved up the Honduran private sector, and that also share in all of these illicit activities.

  15. Total Abolish of illicit drug farming, improve citizen education and eradicate corruptions. If failed these, Central America will forever be in Vicious Cycle…..

  16. Is it because Latin Americans have no assabiya … social cohesion? Countries with a lot of assabiya like Japan and Switzerland are peaceful. Latin America was born in colonial exploitation, slavery and genocide, it continued to wallow in it unfortunately. Latin Americans see Latin America as a place to rape and exploit like the European colonialists so they can gain through corruption and violence as much plunder they can get so they can retire in Spain or Miami.

  17. Nip the problem in demand side of things; the widespread drug use in the USA. Learn from Singapore; they have zero drug tolerance there, and enforce capital punishment for drug use and trafficking. When faced with the death penalty, and a state that is serious about enforcing the law, no one would dare use or traffick drugs. Demand would plummet, and so would the supply.

  18. 9:15 that poor gang member didn't even finish the "MS Paint" back tattoo.

    really? no one asked who's the biggest customer of these gangs?

  19. Why do you show Panama and Costa Rica? The hole thing is about the north triangle. We Costa Ricans already have bad neighbors, we dont need you to include us in your video. I love the channel, but erase from second 28 to second 56

  20. Well No. As long affluent countries consume drugs, the violence will remain. Instead the cartels will become bigger mafia organizations. Just like in Mexico. Invading safe areas and shaking down legitimate businesses.

  21. This is why people should not support illegal immigration from Latin America. Its mostly run by criminals who smuggle people and drugs across the border. The cost to the US is around 150 billion dollars per year, not including all the lost lives from the drug trade.

  22. You are ignoring, as everyone else does, the cause of the problem. The cause of the problem is the demand for drugs in the USA. The USA is addicted, incontinent and very rich. It can’t solve its problems and drugs is one of them. The problem is the USA’s inability to control itself and the enormous amount money it will spend to ignore its problems. The solution is for Central American countries to demand the US amend its negligence and govern its people or the countries south of the USA will legalise all drugs.

  23. Hey Simon, nice video as usual. Would like to request you to make a video on the CAA implementation and the ensuing violence and backlash in India.

  24. I feel that the video lacks nuance a lot. I just did not like that you indicate so firmly that no one is doing anything to stop violence in the region and I do not agree with you. Your analysis paints central Americans as people that just stand there watching it happen, whereas I know that many people try to make better their country in any way they can.
    Sure the politicians have not been trustworthy for many decades, but private organisations have done much.
    I would have preferred that you implemented the other issues (education, social inequality, etc.) and not only talk about the violence.

  25. How comes you ALWAYS portray CENTER- LEFT or LEFT wings politicians as the SAVIORS? Countries run by Right wing like Peru or Chile although far from perfect are FAR MORE stable and with much fewer gangs. I enjoy your channel less and less!!

  26. Hopefully u libtards can see why we need a border.! We want people to join our great county and so does Trump. But they need to do it leagaly! We need to no who's coming in our country. And if they can't respect our border and come legally then they don't need to come at all !!

  27. Tell me. Do u lock your doors at night because u hate everyone out side or because u wanna keep the people in ur house safe??? That's y we need borders. To no who's coming in our country. They have to do it leagaly. If they can't respect our border laws then they don't deserve to be here!!

  28. Arm the populace. No more dictators. Let the people defend their homes from these gangster bullies. Oh, and build the wall.

  29. if we just made politicans going into office signing an : if you fuck us up with egoistical intentions. you will be hanged note… shit would be much better.

  30. Unless they are brought under the control of a benevolent dictatorship then the Central American countries will always be corrupt and violent cesspools. This is why the USA needs to build the wall.

  31. 20200116: The CASE for decriminalising the consumption, sale, supply and manufacture of recreational drugs is, via this video, obvious. Government could also subsidise the cost of these drugs and even make them available for free over the counter if you provide an ID and agree to have it put on your medical records so when you need to go to the doctor he/she can ask the right questions. PERSONAL DRUG use should (by Law) be made a medical, not social issue. The drugs should be manufactured to BP (British Pharmacopoeia) standards with equally accurate information supplied at the point of sale. This is, or should be made similar to the sale of tobacco. Smokers typically ruin their lives SMOKING and we don't go crazy observing these train wrecks. Maybe the root of all evil is the social conscience. Or the over-active mind.

  32. legalise all drugs there always be a demand for drugs, that's why so many cartels exists and lots of shit is going on, to supply the biggest customer(USA).

  33. VisualPolitik has become SO DUMBED DOWN over the last year. Fed up on waiting for the old format to return.

  34. Is VisualPolitik connected to Ruptly in any way? They use several sources but they have a lot of Ruptly videos.

  35. Just a suggestion but if you guys could do a video on the massive rise of the Vox party in Spain, maybe also highlighting populism all over Europe. Love your videos, keep it going!!

  36. Amazing, you managed to not talk about how the USA 's coups affect the societies, yet talked about the two countries that the USA has yet to take over, and that is Venezuela and Nicaragua, in such a negative way.

  37. Simon, it's not lack of information, you know all of this and still cave into the 'Trump is anti immigration' narrative because he wants to build a wall.
    You know innocent people and drugs are being trafficked through the border… How can you be against the wall?

  38. When the criminal justice system must start using tactics that emulate military tactics then criminology based one you know your country is in for a bad time.
    Im a criminologist by profession, but sociologist at heart and I can see the institutional issues that existed have become so normalized in their society that all we can see now IS the crime, and not the systemic problems that promoted it to flourish to begin with. The fact many join these gangs because of how poor their countries are doesn't help in dissuading the youth to sign up for a life of crime and fast money it's a shining recruitment sign. I think even if the gap was bridged, due to the historical precedence of corruption of how organized these gangs are where they are genuine organizations now it might actually be next to impossible to get rid of them now.
    A weak unequal governmental system will always be filled with a strong overwhelming power house that has seemingly limitless funds due to a limitless demand for their product, and drugs will ALWAYS have a demand.

  39. Legalize all drugs but tax each to cover the costs associated with it.
    Assure that the tax fully covers the cost of drug treatment and survivors benefits.
    The USA experiment with Prohibition showed that making a popular drug illegal enables crime and does not reduce use.


  41. These groups are not manufacturing bullets and machining guns by themselves. Someone is supplying that playground. Why kill the goose?

  42. The US got rid of the violence from alcohol prohibition through legalization. The War on Drugs is lost. Legalize and accept that we can't stop some people from destroying themselves with drugs. The collateral damage from trying to protect the self-destructive from themselves is too much.

  43. Let's legalize cocaine and import it from Mexico proper. If there's no drugs to export no need for the cartels. As for the human trafficking, anyone found paying for the victims castration by papercut or femal circumcision

  44. As a Salvadoran citizen, the actual problem started when all of the gang members from Los were deported back to El Salvador & Honduras in the late 90’s. Ms (Mara Salvatrucha) & Barrio 18, I disagree completely with this video because maras are who control the country NOT the Mexican Cartels…… Real violence started when Maras gained so much power because they saw authorities weren’t doing much to stop them.

  45. the Philippine government made a radical strategy on how to curve drug trade in the country. They don't hunt the leaders of the drug syndicate hunt the henchman and pushers.

  46. It's indeed a vicious cycle. The problem of violence is structural and has been present in the region for a very long time. When newborns there enter the world, they don't get to live in peace, but on the contrary. Violence becomes something usual and doesn't really attract their attention because it's a normal thing for them. Later they have to find themselves in the world and very often they start participating in violence because they don't have other options. Education is crap, high unemployment and other factors which don't let people have other options. So when politicians govern such a state, then it's easy to be corrupt or to manipulate because there are no people who would create a real opposition

  47. The massive drug market in the states are fueling this. America needs to legalize and regulate drugs. Legal drugs would strip cartels of their power and influence.

  48. The president of Nicaragua seems to have an African name lol. Here in South Africa their seems to be a growing demand for cocaine, don't think the violence will decrease when demand is increasing

  49. Mad science plan. You isolate the coca plant and create a genetically modified version that produces a very low quality cocaine. Makes sure it is set to pollinate quickly so it spreads to surrounding plants and continues to copy itself. Use long range drones to seed the remote fields with these modified plants that will look identical to the normal ones and unlike programming them to self destruct, they could still carry out their natural functions and the farmers would be none the wiser.
    It seems outlandish but as CRISPR gets better I could see some disgruntled billionaire attempting such a plan.

  50. So it was Mexican drug cartels that made Central America the most violent in the world. Remind me not to go to Mexico.

  51. Yes my friend, do you know why that problem it will never end? Because ALL the latin goverments, have deep links with the big drug dealers of the KGB, regionally it's the FARC, something like 80% of the world's drug traffic. Yes, everything happens with the total agree from their goverments, and all the arrests and anti-drugs operations it's only, and only, to appease the international community(notably the anglo-world), and their local conservative society! Themselves wouldn't do nothing against these criminals, NOTHING! The single solution for this situation, would be the military american invasion of these countries, to enforce the law on traffic, and to reform their deep corrupt societies to a minimum "normal" standard.

  52. Did he just call the Medellin Cartel the Madean Cartel? As if his Nicaragyua wasn’t bad enough. Lmao. This guy always be botching up pronunciations of Latin American countries.

  53. Are there any countries that were in conditions similar to countries mentioned in the video but managed to improve significantly without help from outside?
