El Salvador transfers thousand of gang members to new super prison.

Murder rates down 57% in the last year.
"This will be their new home, where they won't be able to do any more harm to the population," President Nayib Bukele said on Twitter.

Last year, El Salvador's Congress passed what's called a state of exception, which suspends some constitutional rights after a dramatic spike in murders attributed to violent gangs. Arrests can be made without a warrant, private communications are accessible by the government, and detainees no longer have the right to a lawyer.

More than 64,000 people have been arrested under the state of exception.

    What a total waste of humanity, but they chose their path and their victims in El Salvador have finally had enough. I've seen in America whole neighborhoods where the innocent have to lock themselves into their home behind barred windows and doors while the criminals run free. When will America have had enough?
