My only regret is that I can not upvote you enough. Great job Randy!
And a really big thank you to Stephanie, Victor and all who helped to
make this happen.

To see the meeting (much needed) turn into expressions of displeasure
on several topics is understandable, but diverts from the reason the
meeting was held to begin with, burglary in La Manzanilla.

Re: this - "The delegation doesn't have a phone. If you can report it, nothing happens".

I refer to this post by Sara from 2007 "The delegación and/or police
in La Manzanilla has no authorization to investigate the case.
The head of the Public Ministry was quite upset that the delegación here
did not inform the victims to make a report in La Huerta and called the
major in front of us to clarify matters".

So it is not the Delegado one reports to, it is La Huerta. I don't think that
has changed and that is a big part of the problem. Who goes after
the bad guy when the crime happens? Who has the pulse of the town and is
on the inside track? Nobody?

I agree with Stephanie (Randy's generalization). We don't need a big
expensive solution, we need a real Sheriff and a deputy who lives
where the police station is now. Someone who has the power and authorization
to clean up this town! To respond to a call (means he has a phone
and a cell phone) that a robbery (or other situation) has taken place.
One who has the authority to look for and arrest the bad guy's and hold
them until someone arrives to take over. To be the enforcer of common
sense with balanced methods. Why doesn't our Delegado have that power now?
