I can't really fathom this massacre of 72 people trying to migrant to the U.S. in Mexico. The numbers are starting to be at a Rwandan level of insanity, no? Drug war violence I can comprehend, but this kind of mass killing is just fucking crazed.

Especially since there recently have been discoveries of some other sites with a great many bodies as well:

"The discovery of the bodies was the largest of at least three such finds this year. In May, 55 bodies were pulled from an abandoned mine south of Mexico City, and in July, 51 bodies were discovered in a field near Monterrey, an industrial and commercial hub in northeast Mexico that had been relatively quiet until this year."

A really staggering number is that 230,000 people have fled Juárez.
