Collateral Damage: Mexicans Take Justice into Their Own Hands in Violence Reminiscent of the 1910 Revolution

In the MexicoBlog we do not focus on the bloody violence of the drug war in Mexico but on the its consequences for social order, its damage to communities and to the development of democratic institutions. This article includes a bloody picture, but the message is about the lack of faith that many Mexican communities have in their politicians and police who ought to place the security of their citizens foremost. In this case, ominously, some members of the community took justice into their own hands. 

The Cutting Edge News: "An attempted kidnapping September 21 in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua touched off a burst of mass outrage that left two suspected young kidnappers dead and a small town in open rebellion." Sept. 27, 2010.
