Mexican Justice in the American Media
It's not a pretty picture, at least not in these two pieces: The Wall Street Journal looks at the case of Antonio Zúñiga, the subject of a recent documentary, who was wrongly and ridiculously accused and convicted of murder. Also, Ioan Grillo looks at rising vigilantism is Mexico, something we mentioned briefly here, and, even more briefly, here. Responding to the second piece, Sean Goforth argues that this demonstrates the need for more serious police reform at the local level.
