SHTFPLAN reports that in order to witness a real-world example of economic collapse in the Americas, “one need only turn their attention to Venezuela, where the collapse of their currency has led to hyperinflation to the point that supplies of bare essentials like flour, meat, medicine and toilet paper are unavailable to the general population. The situation has been playing out for several years and it appears to be coming to a head.”
In the video below, aired on LIVE television, Venezuelan riot police and military gun down a protestor in point blank range.
WARNING THE VIDEO IS GRAPHIC.
As people watched on live TV, a protester hurled rocks over the fence of La Carlota air base in Caracas. His face was covered by a bandanna, and a knapsack was strapped to his chest.
Two soldiers approached, standing just feet away from the riots.
Then, one of the officers pulled out a rifle and fired, striking the activist in the chest. He stumbled off-camera. A few minutes later, a group of people are seen carrying him.
The protester, later identified as 22-year-old David José Vallenilla, died at the hospital. He had been shot in the chest three times. (WaPo)
