I've never been the victim of a crime here unless I go out looking for trouble. Is it the same for Chile? If you go out looking for trouble, will you find it or will it just come to you? That is my concern.
I was also attracted to Chile because I hear the Carabineros are an excellent police force that shy away from corruption. To me Chile seems like a place where there is less corruption than in Latin America due to the laws already skewered in favor of the rich to where they do not need to mimic the fake democracies of the rest of the continent which express one thing but act in another fashion. I see it more like Singapore or Dubai, a well oiled yet strict country.
Also, while the dictatorship has vanished, I hear that Pinochet's shadow still lives on in the government of Chile. Is this true? Is it still hard for people to express their views concerning inequality and social injustice? Not that I would be out there protesting or anything like that but in terms of expressing my opinion.

Qu'est-ce que c'est "student movement"?
Pinochetism is alive and well, it all depends on who your friends are
