Civil society’s look for fact and justice led, ironically, to the normalization of extrajudicial violence and overlook of the rights of sufferers. As Pablo Piccato demonstrates, usual humans in Mexico have made crime and punishment crucial matters of the general public sphere over the last century, and in doing so have formed crime and violence in our times.
