They say failure of anti-crime plan

The historic levels of violence and the increase of 8 of the 10 high-impact crimes show that the security policy implemented by federal and state authorities is flawed, affirmed the National Citizen Observatory yesterday.

Francisco Rivas, director of the organization, considered that in the face of the worst crisis of insecurity and the lack of a strong response, what would be expected would be resignations of the officials responsible for combating crime.

"A whole series of authorities must specifically make a very specific analysis of what they are offering us as an authority on security and justice, and if they eventually can not ... they should be giving up.

"The issue here is that neither do anything nor renounce, the position of the Observatory is not to ask for the resignation of an authority, (but) a security and justice policy, but eventually if they do not want to give it, then they will resign, and resign those who do not want to commit to Mexico, "Rivas told a press conference, questioning whether the Secretary of the Interior would have to resign.
Last October, 2 thousand 361 investigative folders were initiated for intentional homicide, the highest monthly figure in the last two decades. The Observatory warned that last month an average murder was recorded every 16 minutes and 9 seconds.


In the first 10 months of 2017, intentional homicide increased 26.8 percent in relation to the same period last year; there also rose the culpable homicide (3.3%); extortion (12%); theft with violence (38.1%); auto theft (16.4%); the robbery to house room (2.4%), the robbery to business (33%), and the robbery to passer-by (31.1%).

Rivas considered that the authorities should also admit their disability, change the route, define a clear and comprehensive policy to combat crime, strengthen the police, stop improvising, as well as fight corruption, black markets and the financial structure of the delinquents

"I believe that today admitting that security is not working implies a change, and the change is not being seen, what has happened?" Nothing has happened, more than the pronouncement of lawmakers by the Internal Security Law.

"And we have a head of the Executive that the only thing he says is that civil society is buicking it, when they are killing us," he criticized.

In its monthly analysis of criminal incidence, the Observatory warned that the situation of violence is more critical in Baja California Sur, Colima, Baja California, Guerrero and Zacatecas, where the highest murder rates were recorded.

"At the end of this year we will probably reach 19.76 homicides per 100 thousand inhabitants, which makes it practically twice the rate needed to speak of a homicide epidemic, therefore, we do live a very serious epidemic of homicides", Indian.

The Observatory also warned that new "red hot spots" of crimes were generated in the western region of the country, due to the rise of various crimes such as robbery, kidnapping and extortion in states such as Aguascalientes and Querétaro.
