    in my opinion, the blame should be not only on the seller but also on the consumers. Without consumers, no one would be selling drugs, right? why do people even consume that shit to begin with? I know it's not easy to make someone step out of drugs but i think this market will never stop while they have a big demand.

    People of Barcelona should arm themselfs, give the intruders one warning and if they don't leave within 5 minutes shoot them and get rid of this scum in a mass grave. After that they should set the law makers under pressure to spend their time improving law for the people instead of spending their time with prostitutes and champaign!

    as a Spanish resident I am just here to say that a) squatters never get kicked out in Spain no matter what you do or who you know. b) the system never works and c) the first fail in the system is as a matter of fact the police because they either don't know how to do their job or they simply don't want to. I feel for these people but in this country rarely logic wins. and I would just like to add that SPANISH people are the ones that sell the drugs and owe these narcopisos. not Moroccan, not Latinos, not other Europeans, not middle easterns nor Asian. literally these gangs are mostly SPANISH born and raised people.

    It seems highly likely that the lack of prosecution is due to corruption. It isn't a coincidence that the flats are mainly owned by foreign investors so the political will to help the homeowners may not be very strong. Then you have civil servants making mediocre salaries and a depressed economy. I am sure there is corruption all over the place. I bet homeowners nearby sell for well below market and those in the know can jump on the deal without worrying about it happening to them.

    Europe is so fuking worthless. Just one huge continent of turds to be flushed. I cannot believe they have to find out if drugs are present in order to get trespassers the hell off someone's property. Can you be any weaker, more useless, and waste more skin and oxygen than these people? Don't ever ever have the balls to criticize America again Europe. No wonder we left there to try over again. At least Americans are smart enough to keep our guns so that we can kill motherfukers like this that trespass into our homes.

    The city is highly unsafe at the moment, summer 2019. The crime has evolved, and it has become more violent.
    Where there were pickpockets now there are robbers and several people have been stabbed while opposing resistance. The local authorities are involved in the protection of the criminals due to ideological convictions and the lack action to reverse the situation is worsening the problem. This fact has driven the atmosphere to the point of being a highly not recommendable city. Additionally, the murders are skyrocketing, 12 already this year in a city that used to have no more than 1-2 per year.

    This is why you need a criminal element that's on the "right side" to be available. In Eastern Europe, you'd have guys go into the apartment, beat the junkies and they'd never be seen there again. In western Europe you'd have thousands of hours wasted over something so simple.
