So the police in Ecuador are out protesting a new law which cuts their benefits. Now there is nobody to maintain order, and the country is descending into near anarchy.

And this is why we givge the people upholding the laws a reason to uphold the laws. If the USA isn't careful we're gonna have the same thing but with teachers instead of police.

I think it's a really effective way of saying, "you don't seem to know what we do for you, so we'll show you what life is like without us," if a little immature.

To do what? Kill the hundreds of police officers that are participating in the revolt thus leaving the nation even less protected? If anything they should be working towards a compromise of some sort that puts the police back in action as soon as possible.

The only reason there's so much touble going on now is because there isn't a private army supervising the population because they're throwing a fit about benefits.

No friend, the reason there's trouble is that the private army decided it didn't like having some of its privileges curtailed.

A police force should not be capable of overthrowing a state.

Quote by Article
The striking police were angered by a law passed by Congress on Wednesday that would end the practice of giving members of Ecuador's military and police medals and bonuses with each promotion. It would also extend from five to seven years the usual period required for before a subsequent promotion.

That's it.

Right, but take away their ability to enforce the law and you'll have what's going on in Ecuador right now minus the police uprising. And I think it's been mentioned, but the government is wary of their own military as well. Even then, the state has yet to be overthrown, it's merely been plunged into chaos.

Regardless, proposing the eradication or the absence of a private army to supervise the population is just plain silly. People aren't going to behave unless there are people to enforce the consequences of misbehaving.

The way I read it, it's a bonus and medal recieved if and when promoted. Not annual.

It also says that it can take two more years to get a promotion.

Also, police in Ecuador are probably played ridiculously small amounts like it is in Brazil.

Correa later declared a state of siege and said he was considering dissolving a deadlocked Congress. “It’s a coup attempt," he said in an interview with Radio Publica de Ecuador.

The state of siege puts the military in charge of public order, suspending civil liberties and allowing soldiers to carry out searches without a warrant.

But
The U.S. Embassy issued a message warning U.S. citizens "of a "nationwide strike by all levels of police, including military police." It warned them to "stay in their homes or current location, if safe."

What a wreck.
