Gets to extract the cash from the population:
Hospitals in Haiti are close to collapse because criminal gangs have blockaded one of the country’s major fuel terminals, demanding $50m to let it reopen.
Unable to rely on Haiti’s electrical grid, hospital use diesel-powered generators. The fuel shortage has forced them to shut many of their wards, turn away patients and suspend the already limited Covid vaccination programme.
As with Mancur Olson some gangs are better than others. And vicious bloody slaughter is sometimes the correct reaction to certain gangs attempting the cash extraction.
