The peñanietismo reacted with deafness and exasperation to the probable kidnapping and murder of fifty young people in Guerrero. The pedantry of Jesús Murillo Karam has gone down in history, but there are similar episodes. The truth is that, faced with an almost indescribable horror that plunged the country into stupor, the government of Enrique Peña Nieto reacted in the worst way.
It is no coincidence that the greatest opposition leader of that time tweeted a clear and lapidary condemnation. “Ayotzinapa is an impossible case to close without doing justice, it will be of no use to manipulate or want to make impunity prevail,” Andrés Manuel López Obrador said at the time.
He was right.
Now that López Obrador is in power, another terrible tragedy has been revealed once again. What happened in San José de Gracia, in Michoacán, is relevant because it confirms, if need be, the degree of erosion of the rule of law in the most dangerous areas of Mexico and the impunity that allows an armed group to break in, as also happened in Caborca, and unleash hell.
