Next to children, elderly people are the most vulnerable group in the population. There are six major types of abuse often found within he elderly population.
1. Physical abuse. This is an intentional, non-accidental use of force against an elderly person that results in physical pain, injury, or impairment.
2. Emotional abuse characterized by Verbal intimidation and ridicule through yelling or threats. Blaming or scapegoating also fall into this category.

Haiti remains a country that is defenseless to natural disasters, food shortage, unemployment, poverty, major health problems and many other issues. In addition, actual government is weak or non-existent in many aspects.
The Underprivileged neighborhoods are as a result, marginalized. Individuals or people living in these communities are often blocked from their rights, opportunities and available resources. Absence of opportunities causes insecurity. Imagine someone waking up and doesn't know how he/she is going to feed himself / herself or the family.
As a result, insecurity becomes a daily thing, an integral part of life. It is not a big deal if gang members decide to create panic in such environment. The nation will survive if gangs are fighting in a particular area and the children are unable to attend class. We do not make a federal case out of this if for instance some poor children are shot. In some cased it is not even a news worthy event.
According to the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace, increase in insecurity in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince is alarming. For the month of April, 16 deaths were registered, 13 of them with bullets and 3 by knife. For the month of May, also 16 deaths were recorded. However, just for the first week of June, 27 people were killed.
This resurgence of insecurity in the capital was at the center of an important meeting of the Superior Council of the National Police (CSPN).
The Director General of the Haitian National Police (PNH), Michel-Ange Gédéon, was quick to underline that most of these killings were perpetrated by criminals recently released from jails. He asserted that the PNH will continue to track down these criminals.
