Second of all, here's Liébano Sáenz on last week's arrests and the backlash from those who say it was all a show for the cameras:
Politics and public responsibility have a cycle that goes beyond the temporariness of the electoral calendar. The midterm and gubernatorial elections conclude on July 5th, but not the work that the parties, legislators, and authorities must carry out for the good of the country. It's understandable that passions and party rhetoric emerge in the zeal to win the vote or to improve the position of political forces; but there must be some sense to the limits. The elections are important, but the responsibilities are even more so. July 5th means a lot, but what comes after means far more. Criminal justice can't align itself to calendars, nor can it discriminate based on the political situation of the accused, its strength and only protection is the strict legality in the actions of the authorities. For the sake of justice, acknowledging that [the Michoacán arrests played out] as such is urgent.
