Rich Man's Fence

Offlate BBC has been showing news about a border fence in Spanish Moroccan border. When you see the CCTV footage it almost looks like one of those war movie scenes that were made about brave soldiers escaping German prisions during world war II. Only difference here is that these are not prisioners of war but prisioners of poverty. Only that this time they have guards outside the fence and not inside the fence.

What would be America or Africa like if those people could build their fences and guard them with same ferocity as the Spanish Police. Guess rich man's fence does a better job. But for how long? is the question..!!
