    Ignoring the Murder of Brisenia Flores

    The national press has barely covered little Brisenia’s murder. And there has been no call for a change in policy or temperament. Her classmates cried in a powerful show of emotion when they learned of her death but national news stations did not run to tell their stories.

    ¿Dónde está la indignación tras el asesinato de Brisenia Flores y su padre?

    La prensa nacional apenas ha cubierto el asesinato de la pequeña Brisenia. Y tras su muerte no han habido llamadas a un cambio en la política o el temperamento. Sus compañeros de clase lloraron en una poderosa demostración de emoción cuando se enteraron de su muerte, pero las estaciones nacionales de noticias no corrieron a contar sus historias.

    México: No a la policía única

    Lo mejor que nos puede suceder es que se conformen organismos de seguridad que revaloren el rol del policía, profesionalizando su actividad y sometiéndolos a rigurosos filtros de confianza, donde sea poco probable que el crimen organizado pueda sobornarlos.
