Ten Christmas suicides in Puerto Rico

Suicide rate up in Puerto Rico … ‘Puerto Rico is rapidly becoming the island of magic realism … where public corruption and STP (Stupidity of Those in Power) have reached lethal, surrealistic levels. Is it any wonder that one million people fled the island over the past 15 years, or that suicide levels are rising?’
Speechless … at the sad reality in my country!!


War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony  

Ten people committed suicide in Puerto Rico over the Christmas holidays. Five of these occurred over the last three days, during the Three Kings weekend.

Clearly, a mental health crisis is developing in Puerto Rico.

The first five suicides were reported over an eight-day period (December 22-28).

December 22 – 64-year old man in Bayamón

December 23 – 48-year old man in Guayama

December 23 – 27-year old man in Ceiba

December 27– 50-year old man in Rincón

December 30 – 42-year old man in Añasco

Then during the Three Kings weekend (January 6-8) five more suicides were reported in Bayamón, Juana Díaz, Ciales, Ponce and Cidra.

The suicides were widely reported in El Nuevo Dia, Primera Hora, CNN Puerto Rico, El Vocero and Noticias Terra. Of course, they appeared nowhere in the US mainland press.

Evidence of great stress on the island

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
