Hank Rhon Freed Again
A judge invalidated the arraigo sought by the federal government, and Jorge Hank Rhon is free again. This case, even more so than the michoacanazo, illustrates the need for a more open judicial system. From what we know in the press, Jorge Hank Rhon and his group were discovered with scores of illegal weapons, two of which had allegedly been linked to murders. And now he has been totally absolved. Something here is totally screwed; either the judge is dirty/incompetent, or the federal government is dishonest/incompetent. This being a democracy, we deserve to know which it is.
