Police hate Vigilantes worse than anything.
When Vigilantes are formed it shows the failure of the regular police forces to do their job. Police do not like to admit to failure.
In Mexico the Police have been proven to either be cooperative with drug gangs or powerless to stop them.
That’s why the people have formed Vigilnace Groups.
I am surprised they turned over prisoners to local police instead of hanging them.
Then why are many inner city neighborhoods controlled by the gangs to keep the peace?
The only way you can defeat terror like this is to basically imitate it or to simply overpower it. In this case I would recommend beheading, burning the heads to powder, and hanging the torsos.
Columbia’s long standing drug gang problem was rapidly and finally solved when the cops themselves became the vigilantes and fought fire with fire. Within two years their drug problem was gone and Mexico picked up their business.
Can’t speak as to police, but liberals hate vigilantes more than anything... because it’s PROOF that government has failed.
