By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Incidents of extreme violence have been on the rise in Mexico with September being the deadliest month of 2201, according to CBS News.

Causa en Común, a Mexican non-governmental organization that tracks violent incidents as reported by the media in Mexico, said in a report entitled Atrocities Registered in the Media that there had been 438 acts of extreme violence during the month of September which it refers to as the deadliest month of 2021. Causa en Común reports that there are 97 murders daily in Mexico.

Basing its report on 3,126 media reports, Causa en Común said that due to the rise in extreme violence, 6,314 persons were injured or died during the first seven months of 2021 in 4,093 atrocities committed.

Causa en Común said there have been 800 cases of torture during 2021 and 640 cases of dismemberment, mutilations, and destruction of corpses. Additionally, 502 clandestine graves were discovered, 418 massacres were executed, and 341 women were murdered. Additionally, 290 children and adolescents were murdered as well in the first nine months of the year.

Violence is not only committed against Mexicans but also against migrants who are trying to reach the United States. While Mexico’s National Migration Institute rescued 19,162 migrants so far this year, the Mexican Army has rescued 63,614.

Human Rights First, a US-based organization, reported 6,356 violent attacks on migrants who were deported from the United States to Mexico. The attacks include kidnapping, rape, extortion, and human trafficking, among others.

Causa en Común also reported that incidents of violence against women have risen with the highest monthly total of 61 incidents reported in May.

A Mexican think tank ‘México Evalúa’ claims that 94.8 percent of cases of violence reported to authorities go unpunished. México Evalúa also pointed out that women are given longer convictions than men and credits that to the legal system being dominated by men.
