7 murders in Juarez Jan 22

Jan 23rd:

El Diario posted a note after 11pm with the 7th murder victim of the day. A man killed inside his mechanic shop.  I note that the “ejecutan” verb is coming back into the headlines… This term is used for those assumed to be killed in drug-gang-related disputes. It means that there will be no police investigation. – Molly
