Right! Cut them loose. They’re an albatross, and a parasite upon the USA.
My one trip there was downright scary. Bars on everyone’s windows, and houses fenced in and locked. We were advised by the hotel to NOT leave the grounds by yourself.
It’s a hellhole, and needs to cut-the-f^^^-loose from us.
I was there some years ago (12-15?) for a corporate event. Exactly my reaction. I was nervous being unarmed in a place where the locals buy wrought iron and razor wire by the ton.
Havent been back, not planning on it.
And don't wear jewelry if you do leave the grounds.
Especially rings unless you want to lose a finger.
And don't walk the beach at night, even in groups.
And don't flash money.
