Corrupt Cops in Mexico Asssault 11 Women

Over a decade ago in Mexico City, there was a protest against Mexican governor Enrique Nieto. Demonstrators had taken over the central square and in the process, police violently arrested over 40 women and took them to a far away jail. These women were beaten, raped, and tortured by the police for days before being released. Now 10 years later, 11 of these women are speaking up about the tragic incident and hoping to bring a case against the police department. International human rights officials are looking into the incident and are fighting for an investigation to be held but there is only so much that they can do. Realists would blame this inability to act on anarchy. There is no world government to hold Mexico or Nieto responsible for the assault on the women. At this point in time, there is not much else that officials can do because the Mexican government is not fully cooperating with investigations.
