Racial slurs, insults, build up to the ambassador’s wife slapping one of the women, and the ambassador, Rodrigo Riofrio Machuca, joining in and kicking the women. The eyewitnesses say that the women fell to the ground and he continued kicking. When the police showed up and refused to arrest him, the women followed him and saw him enter the Ecuadorian embassy.
Video from the security cameras is missing.
Apparently the only people investigating are the journalists. One witness gave them an 8-minute video of the incident.
The Peruvians want their president to expel this ambassador.
As Drudge says, developing . . .
The mother says he called them “ignorant Peruvians” and made a disparaging reference to the country’s large indigenous population.
Ummm… no; the mother in the video asserts that the ambassador made a racial slur against indigenous Peruvians, and then blamed them for the (bad) state of things.
