Suck it Larsen!

Bolivia´s Minister of Land Alejandro Almaraz has kept his word, finally entering the ranch of US ex-pat dirt bag Ron Larsen in southern Santa Cruz, carrying out constitutional Land Reform responsiblities. Ron Larsen and his son "Mr. Bolivia", Dustin Larsen hold illegally extensive properties in Alto Parapeti where the OAS Human Rights Commission concluded indigenous Guarani communities are exploited by local ranchers through practices analgous to slavery, but Dustin Larsen insists is just regular ol´"poverty". Last Feburary, government Land Reform agencies working with Guarani indigenous organizations were violentely halted from carrying out retitling by the Larsens leading a gang of Santa Cruz paramilitaries, even kidnapping Almaraz and others.

Yesterday, Bolivian officials arrived at the ranch, made several arrests (the Larsens have apparently fled... back to Montana?) and seized a cache of arms. (pictured right with Almaraz) They can now go about the business of giving proper legal title of the property back to the land´s rightful owners under Bolivian law, the indigenous Guarani people historically dispossessed and enslaved by dirt bags such as the Larsens. A proud day for Bolivia.

Uh, I believe this calls for a WOOT!!!

Good riddance to bad rubbish. If they know what's good for them, they'll stay out of Bolivia.

I had the unfortunate experience of knowing Ron Larsens brother at msu( Kevin Larsen) where I was a college student.If Ron is anything like his brother he feels that he is above the law and can engage in what ever activity that he chooses be legal or not legal.He was an abusive sociopath with a warped agenda.You are lucky to be rid of the Larsen Boys.Kevin always fled to Bolivia when the kitchen got too hot.

what they are doing is taking land from someone who has worked hard to impove what is his. he bought it fair and square. look at zimbabwe and see what bolivia will look like soon. "giving" land to people who do not know how to manage it will result in land degredation and a net loss in food production. its so easy to blame your problems on "evil white man" when your problems are actually with your socialist tyrant ruler. you will get what you deserve: hunger, famine, environmental degredation. good luck morons!

You mean bought "fair and square" slaves to improve "his" land under the rule of US backed dictators and now wines about the "tyranny" of enforcing the constitutional indigenous rights under a democratic government twice elected in free and fair votes certified by international observers. Bolivia will do just fine without Larsens' prestigious frat boy education.

Not getting rich off the slave labor. His brother Kevin drives a $150,000... turbo porch.

what is a turbo porch? I assume you are referring to a Porche? That is not what Kevin drives. How would you know? Do you know him? I think not. He is not an abusive sociopath either, I've known him my entire life and that is the most ridiculous thing anyone could say about him.
