On July 7, Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise was assassinated in his home. His death is likely to further disrupt the security situation in Port-au-Prince, where entire neighborhoods are controlled by gangs with alleged links to Moise’s government. VICE News spends time with the police and the gangs battling it out in Haiti’s capital.

    Someone needs to explain to these kids what feelings are. Pretty sure back in the day a group determined the world with them. You can live at the bottom if you can live with yourself. Can't control the top with their feelings when they went so far past each one. Zombies

    The world needs to hear a real voice and show the change. Step one building- supply people with jobs in road, electrical, police, mail, distribution... Give food,water and housing. Then fun needs to brought out in neighbor like parties... Bbq, music, swimming. I have multiple ways to change persons vibe or feeling by just changing the environment around them or myself

    Haiti is a,country forsaken by GOD and MAN.There is no hope for this country,The light at the end of the tunnel is a train.Moise was corrupt as all haitian presidents are.He would of become a dictator,if he was not killed.In one hundred years,haiti,will be the same.Corrupt,poor,no future,no hope.

    This is the reason Haiti is plagued by Disaster after Disaster. The Officer in question looks afraid to answer you know why? Because he would be killed for telling the truth. No way in hell foreign individuals come to a small island nation and kill a President in which none of of his "protectors" are even harmed. Politics? Come on. This nation is smaller than Jamaica and look at how bad it is there vs. in Jamaica? You have Gangs everywhere yes. But, at least we have pride in our nation to not kill children in the name of Politics.
