Venezula – Kidnap Capital of Latin America

Welcome to Venezuela — The Kidnap Capital of Latin America

FOX NEWS: Wilson Ramos, catcher for the Washington Nationals baseball team, was freed after being held by kidnappers for two days in the mountains outside the city of Valencia in north-central Venezuela.  Ramos, a Venezuelan citizen, had been visiting his family in an upscale neighborhood when he was taken by masked gunmen and held, ostensibly for ransom.

This painfully public kidnapping has highlighted an endemic problem for Venezuelans, rich and poor alike.
