Terrorist charges were brought by Prosecutors in Mexico against two motorcyclists because their loud exhaust pipes backfired and caused a sound like gunshots that sent a crowd into a panicked where people were injured. It was crowded in San Luis Potosi because people in the state were attending a weekend Holy Saturday event. When the motorcyclists exhaust startled everyone they went into a stampeded. There were no fatal injuries however, some suffered bruises and falls.
San Luis Potosi’s State spokesman Juan Antonio Hernandez said Wednesday that the motorcycles’ witnesses said the two men purposely gunned their engines even after the panic started to make it sound as though gunshots were going off. The incident occurred Saturday, and the two were formally charged Tuesday.
The head of the state’s human rights commission called the charges excessive. Do you think the charges are excessive? Terrorism charges? What about reckless?
