Na imagem: momento em que a deputada mexicana Carmen Medel acaba de receber a notícia do assassinato da filha

16 outubro, legalização do comércio de cannabis no Canadá… 20 outubro, após a saída do governo , o ex-ministro do interior francês Gérard Collomb faz declarações inquietantes sobre a situação das banlieues (subúrbios) das grandes cidades em França… 24 outubro, apreensão em Málaga pela Guardia Civil de 5 toneladas de cocaína oculta em carregamento de bananas, com um “street value” de 1 bilião de euros... 9 novembro,  gritos de desespero de deputada mexicana em plena sessão parlamentar ao saber do assassinato da filha naquele momento…

No mundo cão em que vivemos, os problemas de uns são problemas de todos. A droga é um dos fenómenos mais graves do ocidente que, aliás, em muito tem ajudado à sua decadência e degenerescência… O recém-remodelado ministro do interior francês do governo Macron não podia ser mais claro sobre a situação de insegurança e “hiperviolência” nas zonas no-go da periferia das grandes cidades francesas, em entrevista à Valeurs Actuelles: “Combien de temps reste-til avant qu’il ne soit trop tard? – Je ne veux pas faire peur… C’est difficile à estimer, mais je dirais que, d’ ici à cinq ans, la situation pourrait devenir irréversible.” “Que craignez-vous? Une partition? Une sécession? – Oui, je pense à cela, c’est ce qui me préoccupe”.

Canadá, o governo de Trudeau decide dar mais um passo de tipo progressista, a legalização, em 16/10, do comércio da cannabis, de ora em diante acessível a qualquer adulto para fins “recreativos”. Para além de eventuais questões morais, completamente arredadas da discussão nesta fase, para além dos efeitos potencialmente graves a longo prazo, muitos se questionam, de forma meramente operativa, o que acontece à segurança no trabalho, à segurança dos cidadãos, em mil e um aspectos da sua vida quotidiana, num ambiente “drug-friendly”: polícias, enfermeiros, médicos, bombeiros, motoristas de autocarro e de transportes escolares, trabalhadores de máquinas e sistemas diversos, controladores aéreos… Se, antes da droga, o controle de alcoolémia já não era fácil, como se faz para controlar se alguém está sob o efeito de psicotrópicos e desde há quantas horas em todo o tipo de trabalhos e funções? … Vai voltar a “repressão” e a “proibição” para as profissões e funções mais ligadas à segurança das pessoas? Mas todo o restante trabalho não é de responsabilidade também? Já agora, num cargo ministerial: o governante provavelmente não poderá fumar tabaco no conselho de ministros mas poderá fumar marijuana antes de entrar para a reunião?

A questão da droga não é algo distante e longínquo. Se a polícia espanhola efetuou, em outubro, entre muitas outras, uma apreensão de quase 6 toneladas de cocaína em Málaga, com um valor de mercado da ordem dos 0.5% do PIB português, dá que pensar. É aqui ao lado.

A insegurança e a alta criminalidade organizada, e a baixa criminalidade desorganizada, são a outra face da moeda do consumo de droga, a que muitos e muitos europeus e americanos, jovens e menos jovens, aderem alegremente e que muitos mais toleram despreocupadamente, e que os políticos em geral acabam por despenalizar magnanimamente...

As imagens da deputada mexicana da coligação de esquerda populista vencedora das eleições, o MORENA, em plena sessão parlamentar, ao receber uma chamada e saber do assassinato da filha, com nove balas, quando se encontrava no ginásio, são de uma brutalidade inaudita. Quiçá um aviso dos cartéis mexicanos ao novo governo que toma posse a 1 de dezembro. Ou talvez não. Talvez um aviso a todos, apesar de a notícia ter passado em geral desapercebida.

Diputada sufre crisis en plena sesión porque se enteró que su hija fue asesinada

La República

9 Nov 2018

Video de YouTube muestra el momento en el que la diputada Carmen Medel recibió la noticia del asesinato de su hija en la Cámara de Diputados de México.

"¡Asesinaron a mi hija, asesinaron a mi hija!" la diputada federal Carmen Medel, anunció la razón de su desesperación, como se registra en un video de YouTube. Ella recibió la noticia de la muerte de su hija en Veracruz por teléfono celular en medio de una sesión parlamentaria . La hija de la parlamentaria del Movimiento Regeneración Nacional (Morena), es otra víctima de la ola de violencia que azota México.

Las imágenes en YouTube muestran que la legisladora sufrió una crisis nerviosa al enterarse del suceso. Ella estalló en llanto y gritaba, entre sollozos, el nombre de su hija.  Por ello, tuvo que ser atendida por el personal de Protección Civil de la Cámara y por otros diputados que intentaron tranquilizarla sin éxito. 

La sesión se detuvo unos minutos para expresar el rechazo a la violencia en México. Además, sus compañeros condenaron el suceso y expresaron su solidaridad con la legisladora. El diputado Pablo Gómez, acompañado en la Tribuna por legisladores de Morena, informó sobre el homicidio de la hija de la legisladora y llamó a erradicar la violencia y la delincuencia en el México, mientras en la Cámara se escuchaba el grito de "¡Justicia!".

"Hoy encaramos la tragedia de manera mucho más directa, con un miembro, una miembro de esta asamblea, todos estamos sujetos a esta crisis de violencia y todos juntos como Legislatura debemos responder", señaló Gómez.

El presidente de la Mesa Directiva, Porfirio Muñoz Ledo también se solidarizó con la legisladora, pues mediante un mensaje a la Cámara de Diputados, clamó por justicia ante el asesinato de la joven.

En su mensaje, la Cámara de Diputados de México exigió a la justicia el esclarecimiento de los hechos. 

Violencia en México cobra la vida de Valeria Cruz Medel

Esta vez, la violencia que padece México cobró la vida de Valeria Cruz Medel, de 22 años. Ella murió en la Ciudad Mendoza, en Veracruz.  Diversos medios locales veracruzanos relatan que un hombre armado entró esta tarde en un gimnasio de aquella ciudad y acribilló a la joven.

Dicho ataque sucedió a pocos metros de la presidencia municipal. Tras el ataque el cuerpo de la joven de 22 años, originaria de Coatzacoalcos y estudiante de Medicina en la Universidad Veracruzana, quedó tendido entre las pesas y aparatos de entrenamiento. 

Desde Twitter, cibernautas cuestionaron el comportamiento de los colegas de la diputada.

 Las cifras de violencia en México

Al cierre de 2017, México sumó 29168 homicidios intencionales, la cifra más alta desde que se informa oficialmente el número hace 20 años y que representan un incremento del 27% respecto de 2016, de acuerdo con los datos del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública del país. Esto significa que alrededor de 70 personas son asesinadas por día. Mientras que 22 mil homicidios han enlutado México en lo que va del 2018.

En promedio, el país reportó 80 asesinatos al día y la cifra total rebasó 13% el número de homicidios de 2011, que hasta entonces había registrado el número más alto de homicidios dolosos, con 22.409.

Canadian Catholic bishops and pro-family group denounce legalization of pot

TORONTO, October 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Canadian bishops along with a pro-family group have denounced Canada’s legalization of cannabis that took place this week. 

In an October 17 statement, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) stated that the Catholic Church “continues to underline the ethical problems involved with the recreational use and abuse of this drug.”

Those problems include “the negative risks that impact on psychological and physical health, the growing problems of a society more and more dependent on drugs and alcohol, the possibility of brain damage especially to those under the age of 25, [and] the negative repercussions on families and local communities.” The statement was signed by CCCB president Bishop Lionel Gendron.

The bishops also decried the “willingness” of businesses and governments “to exploit the drug for commercial interests and as a source of tax revenue, thereby even further jeopardizing the pursuit of the common good.”

Pope Francis has referred to drug addiction as “a worrisome problem in the world today,” they wrote.

“The ‘scourge of drug-trafficking’ favours violence and sows the seeds of suffering and death, Pope Francis has noted several times, to which the response of society should be acts of courage and the resolve to fight against all narcotics,” the bishops added. 

A pro-life, pro-family organization also wants parents to know how dangerous the drug is for children. 

Gwen Landolt, National Vice-President and legal counsel for Canada’s REAL Women — a pro-life and pro-family lobby — told LifeSiteNews that there are serious problems with the northern nation’s new Cannabis Act, beginning with the fact that it permits children over 12 to have access to the drug. 

“The Cannabis Act (Bill C-45), Sections 8 and 9, provides that 12 to 17-year-olds are permitted to possess and distribute marijuana,” she said.  “When concerns were raised about this provision in the Senate, the senators were advised that this provision was included in the Cannabis Act to protect 12 to 17-year-old adolescents from being burdened with a criminal record.  

“It is noted that Sections 8 and 9 do not refer to the ‘smoking’ of marijuana, but this is implied in the possession and distribution of the drug.  Marijuana can also be eaten (edibles) which will be available next year,” she added. 

Although the Cannabis Act prohibits the sale of marijuana to those under 18, many children will have access to marijuana since every home is permitted to have or grow four plants in the home. And although it is illegal for 18-year-olds to grow their own cannabis, it is legal for anyone between 12 and 17 to possess up to 5 grams on their person. They can also share it. 

“That’s 8 to 12 cigarette-size joints,” Landolt underscored. 

Trying to prevent teenage cannabis use on a regional level when on a national level it is perfectly legal will be difficult, Landolt said. 

“Should one of the provinces or territories impose fines or other restraints on 12 to 17 year olds for smoking, selling, possessing, [or]  eating  5 grams of marijuana, since they are permitted to do so under the federal legislation, it would seem that such a provincial restriction would be ultra vires (beyond the jurisdiction) of the provinces,” she explained. 

Under the new Cannabis Act, simple possession of 30 grams or less of the substance will no longer be a crime. It can be grown and sold only by those who are licensed to do so, but it will be possible for a household to grow four plants for personal use, depending on what the individual provinces and territories legislate.

Landolt told LifeSiteNews that legal recreational use of marijuana in Colorado has led to a doubling in child cannabis-related visits to the Emergency department of children’s hospitals since 2014. Colorado has also seen a 25% year-after-year increase in adult cannabis related emergencies since 2014. 

Another possible casualty of Canada’s new permissive law is pets. Landolt says that veterinarians have already experienced a spike in the number of pets, mostly dogs, being poisoned from eating cannabis joint butts discarded in parks. 

Then there’s potential carnage on the roads from marijuana-caused accidents.  

“Studies at McGill University suggest it is necessary to wait 5 to 6 hours after smoking a single joint before being competent to drive a motor vehicle without being inebriated,” Landolt said. 

Finding out who didn’t wait will be difficult during spotchecks. Police forces across Canada will rely on the Draeger 5000 (the only device approved by the federal government) in traffic violations caused by marijuana use, but it does not function below 4 degrees Celsius (39 degrees Farenheit) – a problem in a country that is famously cold in winter and spring.   

“There are no regulations in place in regard to cannabis use by Members of Parliament or Senators,” Landolt added wryly, likely referring to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who admitted to smoking the drug in 2013.

Psychiatrists Ian Gold and Joel Gold have written that Canada’s “social experiment” holds serious dangers for mental health, particularly in those under 25.  

“The legalization of cannabis in Canada marks the beginning of a social experiment that raises a momentous health question,” they stated in Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper. 

“Cannabis use is linked to an increased risk of developing psychosis - a family of psychiatric disorders characterized by delusions, auditory hallucinations and bizarre thinking. Schizophrenia is the best known and most devastating of these and is among the top 15 causes of disability, worldwide. Schizophrenia typically develops in late adolescence or early adulthood, and because it often persists for decades, it brings with it untold suffering to survivors and their families.”

The Golds stated that evidence for a link between cannabis and psychosis was “strong.”

“Psychosis is arguably the most serious health problem associated with cannabis use and the evidence for the association is strong. A study published this year surveying nearly 100 possible factors associated with psychosis identified cannabis use as one of four most definitively linked to the disorder.”

The earlier the use of the drug, the greater the risk, they added. 

“One seminal, longitudinal study, that followed 45,000 Swedish conscripts over 15 years found a six-fold increase in the risk of developing schizophrenia in those who consumed high amounts of cannabis,” they wrote. “A more recent follow-up study of the same group showed that even moderate use (11-50 times) doubled one's risk. While the numbers might vary from study to study, the results are unequivocal: using cannabis is a risk factor for later psychosis. And the earlier the use, the greater the risk.”

Another study showed that the risk of later psychosis for 15 year old users was three times as high as it was for 18 year olds.
