Another Jail Riot
Five people were killed in a prison riot in Chihuahua. This is unfortunately not the first such story in the past fourteen months or so. In the three riots in Gómez Palacio, Juárez, and Durango in 2009 and 2010, more than 60 inmates total were killed. There were other smaller incidents as well. And there surely are other episodes that never made the papers, or that did but slipped my attention. Not to mention the escapes, which are often legendary.
