sad day for Mexico and AMLO

The reports I have read say that there were 7 dead, 1 civilian among them, and 16 injured. On top of that a city and the government of Mexico were brought to their knees and forced to surrender a criminal (possibly 2 major criminals) they had in their custody. Not a proud day and one that certainly makes me worry. Not so much that it makes me change my mind about living here or carrying on with my daily life, but brushing it off is not something that I currently find myself able to do.

Not brushing anything off. Most of the folks in Mexico who aren’t Pejezombis are quite disappointed in AMLO’s decision. I was referring to the adjective “carnage” that I thought was a bit excessive, relatively speaking, compared to the events in Aguililla in the Tierra Caliente of Michoacán and in Tepochica in the Sierra Madre del Sur near Iguala, Guerrero.
