Video offers evidence of torture by officials

Posted  by DD from material at Mexico News Daily and Animal Politico

Yesterday the US State Dept. issued it's annual report on human rights abuses in nations around the world.   In that report in the section dealing with Mexico, the State Department said the most significant problems included police and military involvement in serious abuses, such as unlawful killings, torture, and disappearances.

Whether by coincidence or just good news coverage,  DiariodeMexicoUSATV, posted today (the day after the US report on human rights violations) on YouTube a video that offers pretty good proof of the charges in the State Dept. report.  It is of a women, bound and sitting on the ground, surrounded by a man and a woman, both in military uniforms and what appears to be another  person in a Federal Police uniform.  

The female soldier is shown putting a plastic bag over the woman's head and wrapping it tightly.  At one point putting her rifle to the captive's head and though the woman can't see it she can feel the end of the barrel pressed to her head.  She is crying through out.  

The person in the Federal Police uniform then takes his turn with the plastic bag, and maybe because of more experience at torture, he pushes her onto her back and not only wraps the bag tightly, he holds her down my cupping his hand over mouth and nose.

After the interrogator doesn't get the answers she wants, she asks the captive if she wants the plastic bag again,  “Or do you want the water, or do you want the shocks,” implying water torture or electric shock treatment.
 
The incident was reported to have occurred in Ajuchitlán, Guerrero, in February last year. - See more at: http://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/video-offers-evidence-torture-officials/?utm_source=Mexico+News+Daily&utm_campaign=e74dd8e52f-April+14&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f1536a3787-e74dd8e52f-349444589#sthash.inMQJtbu.dpuf

The incident was reported to have occurred in Ajuchitlán, Guerrero, in February last year.: There was no explanation as to who took the video.

Impunity was another issue raised in the State Dept. report, stating that it was a problem  throughout Mexico.  with it's very low prosecution rate for all types of crime.

It seems impunity is still alive and well as evidenced by this incident.  PGR (the Attorney Generals Office-which has a special division for investigating and prosecuting crimes of torture) said that it had started it's investigation 3 months ago (a year after the incident) but that none of the alleged perpetrators had been detained.

The Army said it had learned of the incident in Dec. (10 months after it happened) and began it's investigation in January of this year.  The Army spokesman said a captain of the Military Police and a soldier had been taken into custody and were currently in a military prison.

The Federal Police said they would support the PGR in it's investigation and that the Internal Affairs Unit of the Fed. Police had begun an investigation as a result of viewing the video which it described as uniformed personnel "mistreating a woman."

In Washington yesterday, the undersecretary of multilateral affairs and human rights in the Foreign Affairs Secretariat conceded there are human rights challenges facing Mexico. “We have never denied that Mexico faces threats and challenges in terms of human rights,” Miguel Ruiz Cabañas told reporters.

He said “a great effort” is under way on the part of the federal government to attend to all the challenges that Mexico faces.

    1. what makes you think she is a "narco bitch"? They were asking her "Where is Mary"? She was crying and responding "I don't know a Mary". Does that make her a narco bitch?

    3. 11:31. Are you sure she "certainly" knows a Mary? If you are referring to Jesus' mother, that does not make a character a God. Have you heard of the word respect?

    2. They show no faces, it is open to the suspects under arrest to say they are not the ones in the video, the army will looove it and have a big party celebrating that the charges did not stick, for Tlatlaya, they arrested about 25 guys, later released all except for 7 and then released them too...

  9. Have you guys heard of WATERBOARDING used by the U.S.A?

    Waterboarding is a form of water torture in which water is poured over a cloth covering the face and breathing passages of an immobilized captive, causing the individual to experience the sensation of drowning.

    1. First of 9:57 water boarding is used in the interrogation of FOREIGN terrorist not its own citizens. Believe it or not the US have rules of when or where certain torture can be used. Republicans are all for torture by all means necessary and Democrats want more rules in place. Just because certain techniques are used by the US doesn't mean they are used on all prisoners. The war on terror has opened all new cans of worms but hey if you aren't a terrorist then you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Right?

  13. I've heard firsthand about similar interrogation tactics used by the narcos from a survivor. One wonders where these cops are picking this stuff up.

    1. 12:16 no no no no and no, güey, the narcos pick it up as soldiers and police officers or investigators, then they become narcos, because that is where the money is, don't be a sucker and insinuate "the narcos...", no te hagas pendeja!

  17. im not ignorant to females in the armed service in the USA.... i have driven all over mexico and have yet to see a female soldier in a role like this or mounted in the back of a patrol unit doing patrols.... not excusing the military of mexico just analyzing the whole scheme of things before i make negative comments or bash the military..... every one should be afforded due process.... every one even the victims but we cant change or reverse time and the narcos would have no mercy on you or your mother.... so if she was a bad person o well ...... karma is a bitch...

  19. Fuck this Shit! This is all done under U.S. pressure to capture drug kingpins and so called help with the "war on drugs". The U.S. does not give a shit who the Mexican government tortures and or even kills as long as Mexicans contribute to stop the flow of drugs into the U.S. and also so as long as Americans themselves are not punished for breaking federal law for consuming drugs! The U.S. should stop all this Fucking war or Drugs bullshit and educate instead of incarcerate people for this stupid failed policy. "Say NO to Drugs" campaing in the eighties was showing promising results albeit slowly but stupid politicians in the U.S. had to cancel that shit and decided to fight an uphill battle incarcerating people and shit like that which leads to the stuff we see in the video today. It all adds up

  21. I have a strong suspicion that this is one of the "enhanced interrogation" techniques we in the States employ on terrorists. Like Don Winslow said, "we're all a part of the cartel now".

    1. If the untouchables can't be touched, then somebody has to be touched, to present work, I saw the vjdeo, there is no real damage, they even tortured her carefully, no board to tie her up to, or water used because there was a dirt floor, no riffle butt hitting her, she was free to drag herself all over the floor in fear, but no blood drawn, we got more scared and into snitching on each other here about it.

  22. I wonder if they will also blame the gerardo ortiz video for this

  23. Theyve always done this, specially gafes, lets not forget that the original zetas wer trained by cia to do exactly this, locate narcos torture them and kill them. I know a couple of soldiers that say they torture all suspects just the way they would torture a captured soldier. The only reason why you never heard it back was because we didnt have internet. This is nothing new. Of course its wrong but as long as we dont have the means to defend ourselves nothing will change.

  25. Not to excuse this, just to add nuance: hold your breath and count to 30.
