My dad also called me last night and apparently there are riots starting. He is currently working in a nieghborhood of PAP, Petionville. The riots are a result of U.S. and Haitian soldiers who are charging Haitians $7 US for a bag of rice when it's supposed to be free (the average Haitian makes less than a dollar a day just to put that into perspective)
