Defining freedom across the board...

Unlike the U.S., in Mexico it is not a criminal offense to try to escape from jail.
Their philosophy of law holds that it is human nature to want to escape from incarceration. Mexican escapees who do not break any other laws or use violence are not charged and no extra time is added to their sentence; however, guards are allowed to shoot prisoners attempting to escape. Seems fair to me. Why should any living thing be punished for seeking freedom? Then again, why make it easy?

Not just in Mexico. It is like that in most countries of the world. I live in Europe, and we have that rules here also. And we don't have capital punishment. These are basic civilisation things, and we are ashamed by time when we killed people for crimes the same way you are ashamed of black slavery.
