Despite security forces unearthing 28 corpses near Iguala, south of Mexico City, DNA tests prove conclusively that it is conclusively someone else’s problem. Mexicans can now get back to their day-to-day routine of stepping over murder victims and turning a blind eye to extrajudicial executions.
A police spokesperson spoke of his relief: ‘Phew! For a moment there, we were genuinely worried that these might be political dissidents. Instead, we’re happy to announce, that it is just a load of bog-standard unidentified corpses – probably killed as a result of our phoney war on drugs. I guess we dodged a bullet on this one…which is more than those poor chumps can say’.
