for violating a peace treaty after the colombian military killed a high ranked M-19 guerilla commander on august 28 1985 . and the second main reason was to burn all of the information and documents along with the written evidence and important names of the members who were working for the medilin cartel to cover up pablo escobar's crimes which was originally collected to be used against him in court soon. pablo escobar allegedly had a meeting with the guerillas days prior to the attack, and paid them a sum of money for them to burn the documents in the document room. and they were successful, they burnt every piece of evidence which was gonna be used against pablo escobar in the future in court. although this has been confirmed true since the medilin cartel had sent death threats multiple times to the supreme court previously


the attack.

it happened on a peaceful afternoon at approximately 11:30 11:40AM, three vehicles carrying 35 guerillas 10 of them were women and the rest were men, the guerillas split into two groups, one group using a truck entered the basement and opened fire at everything that moved civilian or not they shot them on sight, the second group was smaller than the other, they disguised themselves with civilian clothes and they stormed the first floor of the building through the main entrance and started opening fire as they heard shots being fired from the basement, the second group killed 3 people on sight, 2 security officers and 1 building manager, at the same time both groups set up IED bombs in different parts of the building and the guerillas chanting some type of anthem, later on during their exchange of fire with the security guards they lost 1 guerilla, but later they were able to neutralise the whole building and killed each security guard one by one and then they set up posts and objects in strategic areas such us windows, entrances, hallways, stairways, and barricading some windows and doors, their main strategic part of the building was the 4th floor, the guerillas managed to capture and hold hostage 300 hundred people including the president of the supreme court, 24 justices, and 20 judges

gathered and attempted to potentially end the seige by negotiation or free the hostages and eliminate the guerillas, but the moment the colombian forces arrived on the scene the guerillas opened fire at them to show that they are not willing to negotiate, after all the colombian forces managed to free 200 hostageson the first day of the seige, the colombian coalition had ±100 soldiers on the scene and around 8 EE-9 cascavel infantry armored cars along with a handful of EE-1 URUTU infantry carriers which were used to bring down the huge entrance door

I get that you translated the name of the place 'Plaza de Justicia' and got 'Place of Justice' but Plaza shouldnt be really translated (from spanish to english, I mean). We just say Plaza in english. You could call it 'Justice Plaza' or even just 'Plaza de Justicia'. Good post tho, some of the pics at the end are great.

I thought the area looked familiar...I've been to Bolivar Square in Bogota. The building was closed because pandemic and there was graffiti of a woman's tits on the front wall lol. and the words 'Asesinos' and 'Cerdos'(killers/pigs) spraypainted on it.

Colombia is nice but there's a major 'Us vs Them' mentality in regards to the government and the law in general, but its not for no reason - there's been major corruption (and still is) in the government, so nobody trusts them to do anything. The country probably only needs 5 or 10 years of someone in charge who actually gives a fuck about Colombia, to fix it enough, but they haven't had one yet. however, they recently elected their first ever left-wing president, so maybe pigs will fly.

None of us have ever actually given two shits about FDA approval, we only brought it up because, in your state of mind trusting government authority, it should have been important to you.

It's like you all believing in Santa, and we're trying to tell you he's not real, you can know because you never see him. Now one Christmas eve, you're 40 years old, and come up to peek and see, just in case, Santa might be real. And there he is! He's real! You flock to /r/conspiracy, to tell us we were wrong, but it was your wife's boyfriend all along!
