Mexico crime


Mexico SOS was founded in November 2008 by concerned Mexican citizens to help stop the crime wracking their country.


MEXICO CITY (AP) — An anti-crime organization is offering legal defense to a soldier accused of executing a suspected fuel thief — a sign of support for the military’s controversial role in attacking Mexico’s crime wave.

Lawyer Alejandro Robledo said Thursday that Mexico SOS wants a fair trial for a soldier shown in a widely distributed video appearing to shoot a suspect who’s face-down on the ground.

“What we want is for the soldier to have a just, legal process and not a lynching,” Robledo said on Radio Formula. “The Mexican army is the one that defends the rule of law and we’re ready to defend the Mexican army in this case.”
