Mass killings and murders haunt the democratic country of Mexico. Recently a group of 43 students were taken captive and murdered. Who is the culprit of these murders? Allegedly, the police captured the students and handed them over to members of a local cartel, and they then carried out the murders. The worst detail — the mayor reportedly organized it all.
Violence has always haunted the country of Mexico, but the victims of these tragedies have changed. Instead of cartel members targeting rival cartels or political leaders, they target the average citizen, leaving people frozen in fear.
Tools for Change
This latest tragedy has sparked a movement in Mexico and thousands now march the streets in protest, demanding justice and change. For change to happen, more people are needed to participate in these demonstrations. So far the protestors have been the families of the victims and the younger generation, but all generations are needed to make a difference.
The protestors are geared for reform, but how can this be done? Problems exist on all levels of the government, from local officials to national ones. To accomplish reform, the citizens must vote for government officials who will fight against cartels, corruption and other illegal activities.
How to Find a Hero
Education will be a big help in making people aware of the problems that exist, but how can citizens know whether governmental officials are telling the truth, especially after so much deception on their part? As the saying goes, the eyes are windows to the soul. A solution could be in the very eyes of the officials.
New developments like Converus’ EyeDetect™ lie detection technology can help weed out the best officials. EyeDetect employs a simple, non-intrusive test that poses a series of true and false statements. The subject in question answers these questions, and if they answer deceptively, an optical scanner records it.
This innovative technology has an 85 percent accuracy rating and can help people regain trust in government officials that has been lost over the years to deception.
