In amazing events in Mexican Politics recently, a judge has refused to write an arrest warrent for the detainment of former Mexican President Luis Echeverria. Mr. Echeverria served in office from 1970 to 1976 and is accused of ordering the slaughter of students 1971.
A Mexican judge has refused to order an arrest warrant for former President Luis Echeverria on charges that he ordered a massacre of students in 1971.
Mr Echeverria, 82, who ruled from 1970 to 1976, had faced the prospect of becoming the first Mexican president in modern times to face criminal charges.

But Judge Cesar Flores threw out prosecutors' claims that he and other officials were involved in "genocide".

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

This is the first time i have ever heard of this and was quite taken back by the way the judge ruled out even thinkin of bringin him for question. Which means that he is either suspicious of things but wants more evidence to bring him in on, or he is in on it.

Not having all the facts this is worth keepin an eye on, you never know what could come around.

Ohio's governor rhodes of ohio was responsible for the 4 dead and 9 wounded at kent state university on may 4 1970. The day before he appeared on campus saying he would use "every force possible" to maintain order on campus. We have statue of rhodes front of the ohio state house.

Echeverria will be dead before anything happens, then he'll have his statue too.
