3 men apprehended in Vera Cruz State for stealing 15 cows ( one of the accused alleged to be a butcher) were forced to walk naked thru the streets of a town where they were arrested/ How is that for restorative justice? (11/27/19 Mexico Daily News)

"Restorative justice" would have had the men returning an equal number of cows plus some amount for lost income, inconveniences, and punitive damages. While shame will deter people from wanting to get caught, studies show that its effectiveness in deterring crime is dubious.

My post was mostly in jest. FWIW ,I believe the cattle were returned, the men who were accused looked pretty unhappy to parade in the center of town naked.

This type of justice is quite common in Mexico and is considered totally legal in indigenous communities as part of their "Usos y Costumbres" protected by the Constitución.
