We have order all over the world, or something like it. Police law enforcement is a part of our everyday lives. To protect and to serve, to punish the bad and protect the good. America’s law system consists of many different types of rules and hundreds of different kinds of punishment. Throughout the US crime occurs on a daily basis, the way it is handled can be argued but it works. Some will say that the law system here is unfair and needs dramatic change. Perhaps it does, but it is nothing compared to the National Revolutionary Police Force in Cuba. For those of you who don’t know Cuba is a communist country so things over there are ran a bit different… Article 64 of the Cuban Constitution states that “Defense of the socialist motherland is every Cuban’s greatest honor and highest duty.” In other words, here in the US we cleanly arrest a person who has robbed or hurt someone. In Cuba, you get brutally arrested if you mention “Fidel” and “Change” in the same sentence. In Cuba you do not have freedom of speech, so anything you say against the government puts you behind bars following a good ass-whooping. Roberto Hernandez, a Cuban citizen was lined up against a neighborhood market wall in front of his town and was shot on both legs, in the back, both of his arms and in the head by the Cuban police. He was charged with “treason”, apparently it was because he was writing articles on how Cuba needs a new establishment and new government order. The Miranda law in the US consists of reading you your rights while in the process of being arrested. The Miranda Law in Cuba…doesn’t exist. Nothing like the Miranda law in the US exists in Cuba. You have no rights, you can’t get a lawyer because they don’t assign you one, and of course you can’t afford it because of poverty. While you live in tool sheds, Fidel lives in Mansions. Following the triumph of the new establishment in 1959, Cuba’s constitution was rewritten and “fixed’. Laws based on education, courts, law enforcement and banks changed, all in favor to the alpha and the omega, Fidel. In February 1962, 45 Cuban Air Force officers were tried for genocide in the civilian courts and were acquitted. Their acquittal was publicly denounced by Fidel Castro as a miscarriage of justice. In response to the verdict, the Revolutionary Government established "Revolutionary Courts," whose purpose was to try those accused of collaboration with the deposed Batista regime, especially those accused of torture and assassination, and those engaged in counterrevolutionary activity. Theft and robbery in Cuba have similar punishments like here in the US. Well, depends on what you take. Meat is only sold maybe once or twice a month just like milk, unfortunately the probably won’t last a month, so some people steal meat and milk and of course some do get caught. Those who get caught face a sentence of 10 – 15 years in prison. Murder in Cuba is treated similar to how we treat murder here in the US. Of course, that depends on why you murdered the person. If a Cuban citizen was murdered because he was speaking in counterrevolutionary terms, then he had it coming. The court systems work a little differently than in the United States of America. The revolutionary courts in Cuba have a bad reputation and are constantly being accused of having fast, certain and severe result in cases. In all, hundreds of individuals were found guilty in proceedings against counterrevolutionary acts and subsequently executed. Cuban law regarding private property has been heavily criticized as offering little to no protection to private property. The government doesn’t really care about your private property because the way they see it is, as long as it’s not food that people are stealing, and people do steal food…a lot, then it’s none of their concern. The only private property they are concern about is the one that belongs to the government. That could put you behind rusted bars in seconds, no questions asked. Speaking of bars, prisons over there and prisons over here have quite the contrast. Josefa Roxanne Valdivia was a Cuban reporter who worked for the daily press in Cuba back in the 1990’s. She one day posted articles about the corrupt government Cuba possessed and later was charged with “anti-social” behavior and was put in prison shortly after her birth of her second child. She was put in prison and was registered at 165 pounds, after her release she was weighing a little over 85 pounds. it’s pathetic really, how the prisons over there starve you to death because of harmless “crimes” you have committed. This woman was the released from custody and received her visa for a safe exit out of Cuba into the United States of America. This woman was my mother. The United States of America has a unique law enforcement program against crime, some may argue that it me be too unfair, but it works.

Patria, órgano del Partido Revolucionario Cubano, obra cumbre de Marti dentro del periodismo
Solo la opresión debe temer al ejercicio pleno de las libertades.
El 14 de marzo de 1892 surge Patria
Yo no creo que en aquello que a todos interesa, y es propiedad de todos, debe intentar prevalecer, ni en lo privado siquiera, la opinión de un solo hombre.
La tiranía es una misma en sus varias formas, aunque se vista en algunas de ellas de nombres hermosos y de hechos grandes.
La Fuerza tiene siempre sus cortesanos, aun en los hombres de ideas.
Hay hombres dispuestos naturalmente a ser ovejas, aunque se crean libérrimas águilas
Todo poder amplia y prolongadamente ejercido, degenera en casta. Con la casta, vienen los intereses, las altas posiciones, los miedos de perderlas, las intrigas para sostenerlas. Las castas se entrebuscan, y se hombrean unas a otras.
A nada se va con la hipocrecía. Porque cerremos los ojos, no desaparece de nuestra vista lo que está delante de ella. Hay pocas cosas en el mundo que son tan odiadas como los hipócritas.
El hombre sincero tiene derecho al error.
Un principio justo, desde el fondo de una cueva, puede más que un ejército.
Todo hombre es la semilla de un déspota; no bien le cae un átomo de poder, ya le parece que tiene al lado el águila de Júpiter, y que es suya la totalidad de los orbes.
Los odiadores debieran ser declarados traidores a la república. El odio no construye. La libertad cuesta muy cara, y es necesario, o resignarse a vivir sin ella, o decidirse a comprarla por su precio.
Los grandes derechos no se compran con lágrimas, sino con sangre.
El hombre ama la libertad aunque no sepa que la ama, y anda empujado de ella y huyendo de donde no la halla.
La patria es dicha de todos, y dolor de todos, y cielo para todos, y no feudo ni capellanía de nadie.
Sólo la opresión debe temer el ejercicio pleno de las libertades.
Libertad es el derecho que todo hombre tiene a ser honrado, y a pensar y a hablar sin hipocresía.
