PBS's POV recently asked its viewers to decide the 100 Greatest Documentaries of All Time, and while we weren't surprised to find the Burro Hall Audio/Visual Division's work passed over (cough*politics!*cough), we were disappointed at the absence of Presunto Culpable - presumably excluded to make room for March of the Fucking Penguins - but happy that this gives us another chance to post it here. Everyone thinks that, living in Mexico, our greatest fear must be getting our heads chopped off by sicarios. No, our greatest fear is being jailed for the rest of our lives for a crime we didn't commit.
Hey, but what are the chances of that happening? Well, according to the World Justice Project's 2012 Rule of Law Index, the answer is: pretty fuckin' good! WJP ranked Mexico 90th in the category of Civil Justice, and 91st in Criminal Justice.
Out of 97.
The good news is that we managed to squeak ahead of Bangladesh, Liberia, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, and Venezuela! Still, it hurts to see Iran, Sierra Leone, and Kyrgyzstan strutting around like they own the place. Full report here.
