在3月8日凌晨,在墨西哥東北部科阿韋拉州的首府薩爾蒂約市,警方抵達一個犯罪現場,有人在這座高架橋下發現五具屍體。在墨西哥,彼此敵對的犯罪組織和販毒集團時常用這種公開展示的方式向對方釋放訊息。兇手在屍體旁留下一塊布條,但上面的訊息並不明確。自從墨國政府2006年開始使用軍隊對抗販毒集團以來,該國已至少有六萬人因此遭到殺害。

Police arrive at a scene where five bodies had been discovered under an overpass in Saltillo, Coahuila, northeast Mexico, in the early hours of 8 March. Rival organized-crime groups and drug cartels in Mexico often send messages to each other through such public displays. A narcomanta ('narco-banner') was found beside the bodies, but the meaning of the message on it was not clear. At least 60,000 people have been killed in Mexico since the government began employing military forces against drug cartels in 2006.

家庭暴力一般被視為私罪,即使連受害者都時常對外人隱瞞。19歲的Maggie與4歲的兒子Kayden和2歲的女兒Memphis同住在美國俄亥俄州。她和31歲的Shane已經在一起幾個月了,他這輩子大部分的時間都在監獄服刑。某天夜裡他們從酒吧返家後,兩人之間爆發激烈爭執。Shane告訴Maggie,她可以選擇當著朋友的面在廚房裡挨揍,或是到地下室讓兩人私下談談。Maggie拒絕和Shane單獨到地下室,於是他變得更加怒不可遏。後來因為房子裡的另一位住戶打電話報警,Shane才遭到逮捕,最終被判九個月徒刑。

1st prize Contemporary Issues Stories

Domestic violence is frequently seen as a private crime, obscured from outsiders even by its victims. Maggie (19) lives in Ohio, USA, with Kayden (4) and Memphis (2). Her partner of some months, Shane (31) has spent much of his life in prison. One night a violent argument broke out between them after a visit to a bar. Shane told Maggie she could choose between being beaten in the kitchen, where a friend was sitting, or going to the basement where they could talk privately. Maggie refused to be alone with him, and his rage grew more intense. Shane was arrested after a resident in the house called the police, and was later given a nine-month sentence.
