Puerto Rico: Legislation Against False Alarms
Hoaxers Beware: Puerto Rico Seeks to Enact Legislation to Combat False Alarms
Senator Norma Burgos presented a bill that seeks to classify as a misdemeanor any fantasy �that provokes an unnecessary mobilization of the governmental machinery�
Some may wonder if this may represent a corrective measure on the legislator�s part, who perhaps became aware, finally that the mysterious �unpleasant� video that she mentioned so often � and which caused a mobilization of the governmental machinery � never existed.
Don�t be fooled. Senator Burgos is trying to fight against the Ghost Woman of Lajas.
�Allegations of this manifestation mobilized hundreds of police officers due to the amount of curiosity seekers who reported to the location to witness the [alleged] events,� complained Burgos, who introduced the bill along with senators Hector Martinez and Jose Emilio Gonzalez.
When insisting on Video 59 � that is to say, the Ghost Woman � Burgos noted: �All of this commotion turned out to be a joke concocted by two people with the aim of frightening a third party.�
