The assassination of the two civil guards in Barbate (Cádiz) after being attacked by a drug boat was a real reality blow for Spain. The news of the death of the two members of the security forces provoked a multitude of reactions among the most famous faces in society, including that of journalist Iker Jiménez. After this tragic event, the television presenter wanted to pay a vibrant tribute to the two deceased, to recall the legacy of two people who lost their lives for the security of the country. So, this Thursday, in the program “Horizonte”, they decided to devote a moving minute of silence to honor his memory. The moving minute of silence of Iker Jiménez to the guards of Barbate The Cuatro program began its broadcast with a stony silence, with Iker Jiménez and the rest of the collaborators standing, the images of Miguel Ángel González and David Pérez, the two civil guards , on the configuration screens and a Spanish flag on the main screen. Once the deadline had passed, the famous communicator admitted that when he was asked to make this gesture, he did not hesitate twice: “‘Horizonte’ may be wrong, he may be right, but what ‘he never does is lie to you or read any guidelines or any established script,’ said the presenter.

Iker Jiménez’s reflection on the assassination of the two civil guards This is not the first time that Iker Jiménez has spoken about the Barbate tragedy. After the assassination of the two civil guards attacked by a drug boat, the presenter wanted to express himself through his social networks, highlighting above all the great work of the Benemérita: “There is a part of Spanish society which is doesn’t care, He doesn’t care, he looks away. We have seen events of all kinds where there is not a single memory of three workers who, if something goes wrong, will help you. If you have a problem on the road, if they break into your house, they will help you for a salary that is sometimes almost derisory and very often without vocation. Well, there’s not even a memory of that. Nothing happens. It must be like this. And I’m not going to say that we should encourage criminals, but unfortunately in the filming we saw what this catastrophe means. Therefore, I think that the Barbate event is also a bit of a Rubicon, that is, another line has been crossed,” he began explaining. Although he does not wanted to name any government officials, Jiménez indirectly pointed the finger at authorities who ignored the warnings: “When people tell you, no, be careful, in Spain it is getting out of control, it seems like a foolproof plan. Who couldn’t imagine that this wouldn’t happen? Only ignorant idiots or those who seem to prefer it could not have known that this was going to happen. Because obviously, any specialist in the world of criminology, in the world of organized gangs and, let’s say, in the world of sordid criminality, would tell you that. But as always, here, the expert teams look where they want.

And then you have to accept it, and that’s one more step. And that’s okay, hey, take the next step, take the next one. I will also tell you, is there a possibility of a solution? I also don’t think it’s very easy, because if some people want to make changes and are rather terrified of what they are told instead of making the appropriate changes, then you tell me,” concluded Iker Jiménez, sending a harsh message to the population and the government.
