As many Colombian analysts have said, it is evident that what we have in our hands is not a violence that is resolved with an armed intervention, with the Plan Colombia fumigation, with the growing army of the current Colombian Presidency. This violence, like other contemporary, is characterized by a multiplication and sobre-imposicion of different types of violence, says Daniel Pecaut: at this time the violence is a widespread situation, is the rule. All phenomena are consistent with each other. You can be considered, as in our case, that put in work by the protagonists organized violence constitutes the framework in which violence develops. However we cannot ignore that the disorganized violence contributes to enlarge the field of organized violence.

An and another mutually. It would be very presumptuous to pretend to still draw clear lines between violence policy and one that isn’t it safe is that no one is sheltered from the impact of the phenomena of violence (2001: 90). Since the multiplication of these spaces society is becoming, Daniel Pecaut, expressed in a non-place where the relations of private space and the public are mediated by the sobre-imposicion and multiplication of the tactics of suspicion, so ably enacted by violent actors (Pecaut 2001: 239) the case of violence that are superimponen each other is not only Colombian. As well Teresa Caldeira sets out to analyse the case of Sao Paulo: the increase in violence is the result of a complex cycle that includes factors such as violent police reaction pattern; mistrust in the justice system as legitimate and public mediator of the conflict and a just rebuke provider; violent and private responses to crime; resistance to democratization; and weak awareness of the population of individual rights and its support for violent forms of punishment (Caldeira 2000: 105). In Colombia, a country where, as well Marco Palacios, said the collective fratricide has been a source of nationality and violence one of the generalized population identifying factors, the rule is precisely the way as the State of violence constitutes in mediator of social relations and widespread cultural factor.
