@segata true, but I was saying it more out of amusement than spite, the name made me laugh because it's so stereotypically American
I don't even technically "count" as american, there were a lot of people born in the states like me that got tortured during the late 90s FALN hunts. I take no offense when making fun of americans because apparently Caribs don't count. I am a New Yorker though, generally I don't call it that I just call it 1TC but most people don't know what I'm talking about when i say that. I think "Freedom tower" is a shit name as well.
ah it's not that, it's just the way you answered didn't seem like you saw I was joking, a lot of things get misinterpreted on forums due to the lack of tone, couldn't find anything about the FALN hunts, what happened there?
Oh never heard of them? I'll put some links, if you want to know more but theres a socialist party in Puerto Rico called the FALN. They sometimes do business with a gang called the Netas. Since the Netas are mostly political prisoners and assorted Caribs, back in the 90s after a string of bombings, the US government went looking for terrorists in areas of Puerto Rico densely populated with said Caribs. Basically the kinda of places where they don't know what Puerto Rico is, and just call the island Borinquen. The place I'm from Cebrada Cruz or "El Cuco"(The Boogyman) is one such place. During this time, they just snatched people up and drove them over to a base, some people came back, some didn't, but anyone they caught by themselves got a beating, myself included.
