Description
Summary:The objective of the article is to show the violence deployed by the Mexican State against civil society, in the context of the strategy to combat organized crime (2006-2018), which resulted in forced disappearances, arbitrary executions and collateral damage committed by the military. It starts from the premise that the application of violence was to regain sovereignty in the face of the advance of organized crime. The present history approach is followed, where the analysis of complaints, reports and recommendations from human rights organizations served as testimony to document the issue. Three representative cases were chosen: the death of civilians during the detention of Arturo Beltrán Leyva; the disappearance of the Ayotzinapa students and the disappearance and arbitrary execution of Armando Humberto del Bosque Villarreal. The results indicate the existence of a “modus operandi” that had the acquiescence of the State.
