Torture, intimidation, and coercion of detainees are entrenched practices in Mexico’s criminal justice system. Legalized Injustice uncovers the causes of torture by focusing on how criminal justice either encourages or simply fails to deter it. A joint effort of the New York City-based Human Rights First and the Mexico City-based “Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez” Human Rights Center, Legalized Injustice makes compelling recommendations for changes in law and practice to reduce or eliminate torture and mistreatment.
