Efrain Ríos Montt
Former President of Guatemala
Ríos Montt on Trial
There is much to be said about your legacy in Guatemala as president. You had lots of potential for improving Guatemala's future. Your involvement in the military coup that ended the streak of fixed elections was a groundbreaking moment for the country. Things were looking good until the outbreak of atrocities started occurring. Why is it that the indigenous population was such a burden to you? There is no logical reasoning for any of the killing that you did. You are a sick, cruel man, and it is unbelievable that anyone would support any of your actions. I hope that the outcome of the trial results in you in prison for the rest of your life.
