Rumor has it...

Rumor has it that the reason for the burning barricade and demonstrations near our home was because a baby had died and someone had left the corpse in front of the school on Delmas 83, just past A Simon. The police had been contacted to retrieve the body, but didn't come initially.

After five days the baby's corpse began to create quite a scent. People wanted the corpse removed, but when this didn't happen, they demonstrated. They barricaded the road in front of the school on 83 and additionally burned tires at the corner of A Simon and Delmas 83.

The result was that people got the attention of the police and the police came and removed the corpse and the barriers.

I'm not sure if this is true or not, but it would explain why no one was angry or protesting.

It makes me sad to think that someone could just leave a child's body on the street and also sad that the only way for the people to be heard is for them to build a road block and light it on fire.


  1. You can't imagine that this takes place!!!!!

  2. Why didn't anyone do anything about this.
