"In less than a month, they have done something that the army and state and federal police haven't been able to do in years," said local resident Lorena Morales Castro, who waited in a line of cars at a checkpoint Friday. "They are our anonymous heroes."

But guns are illegal in Mexico.
I was traveling in Mexico last year and we went to visit a rather remote little village to see its 16th century church. The people knew we were coming, but we had to stop just outside the village because they had strung huge chains across the road and somebody had to come and unlock them for us so we could get into the town. A little further on, there was a sort of small concrete bunker with gun ports.
The village had had a family whose sons had gotten involved with the drug gangs, and the village had literally kicked the family out. They were afraid the family or the sons or some of their associates were going to come back, so they kept their road closed and at night, the men took turns in the bunker...with a gun.
They were very nice, friendly people and treated us very well. They had had to take the law into their own hands, though, and they were determined not to go the way of other towns in Mexico.
After they defeat the cartels, they can go after the corrupt government that allows the cartels to exist.
You are correct! These are the people the guns from Fast and Furious should have gone to.
“About time the Mexican folk woke up, armed themselves and fought back”
Yeah, and maybe after that, Americans will start to fight back in their country!
The saddest part of the equation is the insatiable demand for the drugs in the first place; from the United States and its citizens. If there was no demand, there would be creation and importing of the deadly product. Oh well, live (or die?) and learn.
Holder is going to be so pissed!!!!
There is no way to get rid of the demand, but there is a way to defund the drug cartels. Decriminalize drug usage in the US. It would have the additional bonus of removing a great deal of power from the government and eliminating a huge number of laws aimed at catching drug dealers.
Exactly why we need to control our border. It forces them to fix their problems rather than escape them.
Amen! PLUS,,the gubamint could collect taxes on it due to the commerce of it!
IF it was legal, the government could tax the crap out of it and it would STILL be cheaper than illegal drugs.
The number 1 smuggled drug in Michigan is cigarettes.
And that my FR friends, is the heart of the militia movement. Hopefully, the culture will spread like wild fire and other Latin American countries (Honduras, El Salvador, etc) can learn what works, instead of becoming slaves to evildoers.
A little off topic,but it occured to me that when the SHTF(economic collapse)here and the welfare classes stop getting their gov ck’s(expect large scale looting,riots,etc)we may end up in a similar situation.Those folks in Mexico have b@lls.What about us?
Any idea why b@lls and What are highlighted and underlined?
All of them. We are free adults able to make the decision about drugs just like alcohol. The WOD was started as an excuse to imprison southern blacks onto prison plantations.
