The massacre of 43 students by the authorities in the state of Guerrero on September 26 has sent shock waves throughout Mexico. Hopefully the widespread anger over this event may begin to nudge the country toward more accountability. The problem here is that you can get away with practically anything, particularly if you have the cash and the connections. That the local authorities carried this out with impunity is a damning comment on much of what is wrong with Mexico. Shrines like this one, on the steps of the Parroquia in San Miguel de Allende, have sprung up all over the Country.
