2 Lawyers Among 8 Killed On Monday In Juarez…EP Times

This EP Times article summarizes some of the public career of Juarez attorney Salvador Urbina, murdered on Monday afternoon in the city… There were at least two murders reported yesterday, so the death toll for May is now at about 50–the most violent month so far this year. I do not claim to know why Urbina was murdered, though I would point out that his public statements and actions in the years of extreme violence in the city pointed out malfeasance of government officials, notably the brutality of the municipal police under Julian Leyzaola and the false prosecution of El Paso teacher Ana Martinez. He also frequently commented in the media on government malfeasance. -Molly
