Although I don’t particularly think riots are the greatest solution to the societal ills, I can’t say I blame the people of Argentina for feeling outraged over the initial inaction of the police following the murder of 17 year old Karen Campos. The one person to blame for all of this is the robber himself – he encountered little resistance from Karen Campos, got what he came for and definitely did not have to shoot her. But he did. He shot that innocent young girl in cold blood and fled like a fucking coward that he is.
And so the people of Junin took to the streets and rioted. From what is known so far, a precinct was looted and set on fire, four police cars were destroyed, the town hall was broken into and set on fire and of course there were injuries to policemen, journalists and residents after rocks were thrown at them. Junín Prosecutor Roberto Rodríguez said five rioters were detained for crimes including public intimidation and robbery.
What’s more important however is that police now also have two people suspected of murdering Karen Campos in custody. One is the suspected shooter, the other his accomplice. I’m pretty sure they’re gonna have hard time in jail knowing that their crime caused international outraged and riots in the city. And rightly so – fucker could have taken the heist and farted off. But no… he had to fucking shoot the girl.

Best Gore member rubialan07 sent one more video with following infi:
Yesterday was worse, they tried to burn the police station, Molotovs flew all around once again. Special forces responded with rubber bullets – I got hit five times, one in the face, two in the back, one in my right leg, and one in my left hand. Luckily, I had a vest and a coat on, and the one that hit my leg also hit my other cell phone. The one that hit my face before that hit the wall so it wasn’t that bad (talk about luck).
Police also responded with tear gas, and other people responded with rocks… Once they ran out of bullets, police started throwing rocks at people, hitting anyone. After that they all went to the central plaza called 25 de Mayo, where they burned another police car down and then the town hall. That was really unnecessary I know. Today there is an organized march in the 25 de Mayo plaza, and the city is prepared for any uncontrollable acts. They brought down Halcon Special Forces, and 4 buses with different police units.
