Who is Javier Ordóñez & Why Is There Riot In Bogota
Javier Ordóñez, a lawyer who was working as a taxi driver during the epidemic, died Tuesday night after being repeatedly molested by police in Angtiva.
The police originally restrained Ordone for violating quarantine restrictions. Video footage shows the 45-year-old father of two stopping police as they held him down and chased him for several minutes. He later died in hospital, sparking a wave of anger over excessive use of police force.

Bogotá on Wednesday evening saw another wave of anti-police protests this following the gruesome killing of Javier Ordóñez who died after police use of tasers.
The incident happened in the early hours of the morning, and anger grew throughout the day. With limited response from authorities, tensions at what began as a vigil outside the Villa Luz police CAI in Engativá boiled over into violent protest.
The riot has spread from Bogotá to other parts of the country. In the capital itself, CAIs were set alight in Parkway, Techo, Gaitana and Villa Luz, as well as a TransMilenio station in Bosa. It seems that others may also be ablaze, but the true extent of the night’s events won’t be known until the morning. What is clear is that anti-police feeling is still running high following the protests nearly a year ago. Young student protester Dilan Cruz was killed by police during those anti-government protests.
Claudia Lopez has proposed further control over the police and spoke of serious reform. She revealed that it is committed to stop speaking and change about isolated incidents and bad apples. Critics questioned his level of control over the police.
It is understandable that many people are suspicious of the authority, as they have seen enough examples of police brutality. It is fair to say that the police have earned a fair share of fear in Colombia with complete impartiality. Last night’s video raises serious questions about excessive use of police force and non-lethal weapons. Now the question is, is there any way to get back from this situation?
