The Pope in Mexico: How to take on corruption and inequality (part 1)

The world's first Latin American Pope is in Mexico where the Church has some big decisions to make. For instance, do you forgive or excommunicate drug traffickers as was done with mafia bosses in Italy? A question that will come up when the Pope visits one of Mexico's jails, a week after yet another fatal prison riot in Monterrey. And what message for a Mexican government which faces scrutiny over lawlessness and inequality, as highlighted by Francis's visit this Monday with indigenous people?
