A Situation I'd Like to Avoid

Guatemala halts recovery effort after mudslides
Hurricane Stan leaves 652 dead, 384 wounded; hundreds remain missing
GUATEMALA CITY - A Guatemalan Indian community, haunted by a government-sponsored massacre during the country's brutal civil war, refused soldiers' help Monday in recovering those killed in a week of flooding and mudslides and conducted its own searches instead.
For the record: I do not want things to get so bad here that the "regular people" don't trust the soldiers.

Also for the record: I think I might be fooling myself that it's not that way already in some area.
