In the middle of this today, a couple of important news items from around the social media to share:

There is a report of a dozen women looting a clothing store. They have been there for 6 hours, and still can not decide what to take.

There has been a call for a nationwide march of women tomorrow to end the curfew. Women everywhere are sick of having their husbands come home so early every night.

I went to Providencia this morning to handle some errands, and most houses on the way had some kind of notice about joining today's protest at 5pm glued to their doors.

oooooh, did the government just make a monumental fuckup (under the circumstances, that is saying something).

so in the middle of this, they fired the medical examiner in Santiago.

she is refusing to leave, saying this is a state of emergency and there are pending autopsies that must be completed both to complete criminal investigations and to release the bodies to the families and provide them answers about what happened.

Do the morons in the administration not see the optics of this?

Are they really so desperate to cover things up, that they would risk looking like they are trying to cover things up?

It's just one person, easy to 'work with' if you need to create some bad optics. In Ukraine they cut financing of the medical examiners to stall investigations after the murder of the 100 protesters.

It's cool to be on the ground observers of Chilean history especially after the hell some of us went through this past week. Kudos to those experiencing this who also fully experienced the 2010 megaquake, tsunami and aftermath.
