Unfortunately, cartels aren’t the only source of violent acts in Mexico:

U.N. special rapporteur on torture Juan Mendez said that signs of torture are found on people arrested by all levels of authority, from the military down to local and state police.

Mendez spoke in a press conference at the end of his visit to Mexico, where he met with officials, activists and victims of torture.

He said practices reported include beatings with fists, feet and sticks, asphyxiating with plastics bags and electric shock to the genitals.
