Maduro Is More Powerful Than Ever as Venezuela Collapses

  Maduro Is More Powerful Than Ever as Venezuela Collapses It became a favorite shouting game on the streets of Caracas. Someone would randomly holler President Nicolás Maduro’s name and people nearby would roar back “motherf**ker”! Not any more. This gleeful verbal exchange between total strangers from a year ago is now regarded as a criminal behavior under the recently established Law against Hatred. The so-called Esquinas de Ideas (Corners of Ideas), where opponents used to tear into the country’s leader, are mostly gone. So are the fiery speeches of dissent in the National Assembly.It appears that political and civic opposition has completely retreated from the public spaces all around Venezuela.

Changes to Queensland 's breach of bail laws and the police pursuit policy have been flagged by the opposition as recent high profile incidents put the spotlight on youth justice reform. Several police officers were injured when pursuing teens in an allegedly stolen car in Townsville on Saturday. And a couple and their unborn child were killed near Brisbane, allegedly by a 17-year-old in a stolen car on Tuesday. "First and foremost breach of bail must come back, if you're released on bail then that's a privilege, it's not a right," shadow police minister Dale Last told reporters in Townsville on Monday.

"The fact that we don't have that as an offence anymore gives these kids carte blanche to go out there, thumb their noses at the law and continue on their merry way."

He described the police pursuit policy as a "very fine line" balancing apprehending offenders and potentially putting members of the community at risk.

"We are open to the idea of reintroducing a trial of pursuit policy, but when you have kids, stealing cars and doing burnouts in a police station car park, then that has to be the last straw," he said.

Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll has described her frustration in trying to manage a small group of repeat offenders.

"We definitely know who they are," she told reporters on Sunday.

"Whether it's Townsville or anywhere else, I can tell you that the police are doing the right thing."

In politics, the opposition comprises one or more political parties or other organized groups that are opposed , primarily ideologically, to the government (or, in American English, the administration), party or group in political control of a city, region, state, country or other political body. The degree of opposition varies according to political conditions. For example, in authoritarian and liberal systems, opposition may be respectively repressed or desired.[1].

The commissioner also took aim at youth bail laws, saying she had approached the Police Minister to have them reviewed.

"I wish more were actually put in custody and remained in custody because we are finding that extraordinarily difficult at the moment," she said.

"But, having said that, I'm not sitting in the Magistrate's chair."

Police Minister Mark Ryan said the number of youth offenders was actually decreasing, but "hardcore", "motivated" groups were committing more crime.

"In most towns it's a couple of dozen," he said.

Mr Ryan said he was having conversations about youth bail changes, but defended the current system.

"(While) there is still this very frustrating situation where there is a small cohort committing crime ... for the vast majority of offenders the system is working - 85 per cent of them never return to crime."

"If you adopted a view that every young person who steals a Kit Kat goes to jail ... then you actually criminalise those kids."
