WHEN LOITERING BECOMES "DANGEROUSNESS" By Héctor Trujillo Pis, Cuba Free Press

CAIBARIéN - As part of a crackdown in the area of the city's dollars-only stores, police arrested numerous youngsters who were loitering there, according according the José Martí Human Rights National Commission. Caibarién is a port city on the north central coast.

The youngsters were taken to the Technical Investigation Unit, they were scrupulously searched. After an hour, officials handed them citations and ordered them to return the following day to the Ministry of the Interior.

When the youths reported the next day, after a lengthy wait they were issued warnings for idling around the "shoppings" as the stores are called where only dollars are accepted as payment. The police also threatened them with being accused of the harsher crime of "dangerousness."
