Hay dos cosas que me llamaron la atención. Primero este aviso de comprobación sobre la neutralidad del articulo (el primer aviso que tiene la balanza) y quienes son Sombra Negra. Por eso os pego también la entrada de Wikipedia donde se explica quien son:
The Sombra Negra (Spanish for “Black Shadow”) also known as “El Clan de Planta” are death squad groups based in El Salvador comprising mostly police and military personnel who target criminals and gang members for vigilante justice. Recent years have also seen increasing accusations of continuing death squad activity targeting the Salvadoran political opposition and members of the political and social left. These vigilante groups are originally based in El Salvador and are not under the official jurisdiction of the Salvadoran government, which can be easily confused.
The name first appeared around December 1994 in the Department of San Miguel. By April 1995, the group stated that it had killed 17 people, claiming that the dead were criminals or members of gangs.
Sombra Negra members typically blindfolded and tied the hands and/or thumbs of their victims behind their backs. Later, the victims received bullets to the back of their heads from close-range assault rifles. The Sombra Negra operatives would conceal their faces and use unlicensed vehicles with darkened windows when they carried out their missions in order to avoid full detection. Sombra Negra stated that it killed people because the group believed that the police could not enforce laws of El Salvador.
Me gustaría poder decir cuales son estos trabajos pioneros que realizo el presidente de Smithfield con Sombra Negra ya, si bien recuerdo death squad group en español se traduce como escuadrón de la muerte. Pero hasta ahora no he encontrado ningún material que lo explica.
