Deaths That Cry Out/ Valdez

Leave a comment

In Juarez, Mexico approximately 470 women have been murdered and absolutely nothing has been done about it. Why? Because these killers have been paying high ranking goverment officials to keep their mouths shut and not do a further investigation. 470 LIVES.

The worst part about this to me is that there are people in the world who are so cold hearted that they can pretty much know who is killing all of these women and stand by while it continues simply because they are getting paid. Some officials even framed other men and talked them into confessing to take the blame off of themselves. I was literally crying while reading this article. I do not understand how in Mexico, or any other place in the world could let something so devastating and cruel go and not do anything to stop it. It makes me feel unsafe to know that there are men out there like this. Even if this is not going on as radically here as it is in Mexico, as long as no one steps in a stop this there is no reason why men here.. with more money and probably more pull in the government couldn’t get away with the same thing.
