No salía tan temprano del trabajo desde que se cayó la avioneta de Mouriño. Anden con cuidado, funcionarios voladores.
On November 11, the Mexican Interior Secretary Fernando Blake Mora died in a helicopter accident at the border between the State of Mexico and the Federal District. His death was followed by mourning among the highest government circles and a political truce in the midst of the budget discussion for 2012.
Many asked themselves if Mareo Flores had tweeted as a joke, or if he really knew something. Yesterday, the Attorney General of Mexico (PGR in Spanish), interrogated him [es] arguing they needed to exhaust “all an every single line of investigation”.
When people learned about this, a wave of online protests from Mexican Twitter users expanded, along with incriminations against the government that has wanted to make clear that the accident was caused by a human mistake.
Besides, this creates a precedent that worried Twitter users about what the government entities are doing with the information of their citizens, at Jesús Robles Maloof (@roblesmaloof) stated:
¿De donde obtuvo la PGR información sobre la identidad de la persona que utiliza la cuenta de #MareoFlores y de su domicilio?
Journalist Mario Campos (@mariocampos) shared his concerns on the issue:
Delicada la detención de #MareoFlores -del que urge info- como imprudente su bio como “ángel de la muerte de panistas voladores”
The fact, considering the atmosphere of violence in which the country currently lives, some like Juno (@voyporcigarros) question the logic of this climate:
En México puedes matar y vender droga, pero si tuiteas eres considerado una amenaza. #MareoFlores
There are still doubts in the air like, can authorities detain someone without an arrest warrant? That's how Geraldina GV (@geraldinasplace) puts it:
Tuit o no tuit. La cosa es que ninguna autoridad te puede detener sin una órden de aprehensión. #MareoFlores
There is no doubt that these news will continue to be in the center of the debate during the days to come due to the sensitivity that the issue is generating, but among Twitter users, the common feeling is indignation, as expressed by Un mal necesario [A Necessary Evil] (@Frank_lozanodr):
Como ciudadano mexicano lamenté la muerte de Blake Mora. Como ciudadano mexicano, también repudio la injusticia contra #MareoFlores
