Victoria Esperanza Salazar let out a scream Saturday afternoon as a female police officer knelt on her back to cuff her hands behind her.
Salazar was face down on the street and barefoot. Her feet flailed. A couple people passed slowly by on a bicycle. There were food stands a few yards away.
Clips of video cobbled together give no sense of how much time elapsed. Then three other officers are seen standing around her motionless body still facedown, chatting casually. Later, three officers lift her still handcuffed body into the back of a police pickup truck and drive away. Video circulating on social media does not show events before Salazar was face down on the street with the officer on top of her.
An autopsy concluded that Salazar died from a broken neck.
He said his office was preparing femicide charges against the four police officers. Let us not forget that it was not the Mexican people who committed this crime, but rather some criminals in the Tulum police. On Monday, a small potted plant and a couple candles sat outside the convenience store where Salazar was killed. She was a single mother of two daughters.
She left her daughters with her family and made her way to Mexico.
In the southern Mexico city of Tapachula, near the Guatemala border, Salazar requested and received refugee status. A more relaxed alternative to Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Tulum had drawn crowds and was struggling with rapid growth. Salazar found work cleaning in hotels and brought her daughters, ages 16 and 15, to be with her.
She also planned to travel to Mexico to be reunited with her granddaughters. Authorities made no mention of Salazar being under the influence of anything in discussing the autopsy. Police detained her a short time later. The scenes were reminiscent of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in The trial for that officer began Monday in Minneapolis. They said fingerprints and forensic evidence were being examined in the case. The protesters were demonstrating against the killings of women and some smashed windows and burned documents outside the city hall, while others tried to tear down a plywood barrier at an entrance.
Police fired into the air, but people were injured when protesters rushed to escape as the shots rang out.
