In the US many times we find ourselves complaining about the judicial system when it comes to dispensing justice on repeat offenders who commit violent crimes. It seems like there appears to be a revolving door in the judicial system when we see violent offenders re-offend time and time again. We get so frustrated when we see or read in the media about yet another incident of a senseless crime committed by a criminal that has a lengthy criminal record. But consider the latest arrest of a hit-man (sicario) who was arrested by the Mexican army in the crime ridden city of Ciudad Juarez.
Get this, , , , ,
This known gang criminal had been arrested last year, in 2008, along with nine other suspects who all had confessed to the kidnapping and killing of 23 people. For unknown reasons Castillo López had been released in September of this year and within three days of his released, he had apparently killed two people who were said to be brothers.
This is totally outrageous and is a blatant disregard to a fair justice and threatens the common wealth of the community. This injustice should be of major concern to the citizens of Juarez which jeopardizes the safety of all the people. If this happened here in the US, everyone would be demanding answers and holding someone responsible. First and for most, this type of abuse of power or corrupt legal procedure (I don’t know how else to describe it) continues to occur, Juarez will never be able to curb the wave of violence engulfing the city.
