Try To Avoid Making Sweeping Statements regarding Places You Just Started Learning About

From a TNR piece about Javier Sicilia:
For the first time, wider Mexican society started having a conversation about how the country—which has the world’s eleventh largest economy and one of the richest political histories in Latin America—has deteriorated into brutality.
Woah, what? Mexico just started talking about insecurity? Just like international football just started noticing that that little Messi fellow is a talented player, I suppose.

She also wrote that the Sicilia murder remains unsolved. In reality, a significant chunk of the local leadership, including the authors of the murder, of the gang thought to be responsible --the South Pacific Cartel-- has been arrested.
