The Minister of Security, Aníbal Fernández, considered this Thursday that “the Buenos Aires City Police brigades work because someone enables them”, in relation to the participation of troops from these units in the murder of the 17-year-old teenager Lucas González in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Barracas.
“I make a separation between the Ministry of Security of the City and the force itself. The brigades of the City Police worked because someone enabled them, and they will have to give explanations,” said the national official in statements to El Uncover Radio .
The minister evaluated the behavior of the policemen who shot Lucas González in an irregular operation as an “incompressible” situation, since they were in civilian clothes and were traveling in a vehicle without identification.

“There were four kids who stopped to buy juice, they came to play soccer. Why did they shoot twelve shots? It is an incomprehensible thing. The defendants are detained, they have declared and the judge will have to take a position on the matter. It gives the feeling that a complicated situation awaits them for a long time, “the official said.
Likewise, Fernández criticized the PRO head, Patricia Bullrich, who considered that the Armed Forces “should carry out internal security tasks”, stating that with these sayings the leader of Together for Change seeks “to sweeten the ears of the faces.”
“They are things that are prohibited by law. Surely he said it because he intends to sweeten the ears of the faces. The Armed Forces are not for those things,” remarked the head of the Security portfolio.
On the other hand, Fernández referred to the “complex” situation in Rosario, where “drug trafficking is present and has metastasized in a lot of legal and illegal activities.”
“None of the things that pass through our hands are left to investigate. The issue of grains is something that we take very seriously. We have 575 troops in Rosario and they have done urban work that determined more than 60 arrests, but it is not the task for those that were sent, “he stressed.
Finally, referred to the incorporation of the former head of the Ministry of Security of Santa Fe Marcelo Sain to his work team in the role of advisor.
“The governor (of Santa Fe, Omar Perotti) dispensed with his services and I summoned him immediately because I am not willing to lose such a quantity of criminal intelligence information. I know how to evaluate what I have at hand and I do not intend to lose it,” Fernández explained .
