Insecurity in Quito

Posted on: February 25, 2011

Yesterday another incident took place which highlighted the insecurity of living in Quito. One other colleague was robbed of his laptop at gun point. We dropped the colleague in front of another colleague’s house and took the taxi ahead. Before the person could walk into the building a person stepped out of a car that was parked nearby, he showed the gun, relieved my colleague of the laptop, and he got back into the car and drove off.
As I had tweeted a few days ago:
Look at the crime in Quito
One feels Quit O.
Really there is no clue on what can be done to safeguard oneself from these kinds of crimes.
How did they know that he will come? He actually was staying elsewhere till a couple of days back?
How did they prepare for this?
Only they know and that does not make us any wiser.
