Carnage on the streets of Port-au-Prince


Mathew 24:12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.

Important Takeaways:

  • World stalls on a promised intervention for Haiti
  • A woman hustles her young child into a waiting car as she shields his eyes. They’re fleeing anarchy.
  • The reason lies in the street before their house: A burned corpse; the remains of a suspected gang member killed by their neighbors.
  • His knees are bent and torso pitched forward as if in supplication, metal wires wrapped around the charred flesh.
  • Now even the holdouts are leaving amid an unprecedented frenzy of terror in the Caribbean nation.
  • Human remains are lying in the streets, yet the multinational security mission long touted by Haiti’s neighbors as a game-changer for its gang problem is nowhere to be found.
  • “We are ready for (the) multinational support force,” Baptiste said. “We’re ready to work with them. But the plan to receive the mission is not laid out; we think the mission will fail like the others because there is no framework to work together.”
