MEX­I­CAN NEWS­PA­PER EL DIARIO PUB­LISHED AN OPEN LET­TER TO THE CAR­TELS IN 2010

Real Crime - - Borderlands Investigator -

You are, at present, the de facto au­thor­i­ties in this city be­cause the le­gal in­sti­tu­tions have not been able to keep our col­leagues from dy­ing.

We do not want more deaths. We do not want more in­juries or even more in­tim­i­da­tion. It is im­pos­si­ble to ex­er­cise our role in these con­di­tions. Tell us, then, what do you ex­pect of us as a medium?

This is not a sur­ren­der. Nor does it mean that we’ve given up the work we have been de­vel­op­ing. In­stead it is a respite to those who have im­posed the force of its law in this city, pro­vided they re­spect the lives of those who are ded­i­cated to the craft of re­port­ing.
