The beheaded and mutilated bodies were hung by their feet early Sunday from the bridge in Cuernavaca, a popular weekend getaway for Mexico City residents.



Since then, more than 28,000 people have been killed in violence tied to Mexico's drug war.


I couldn't imagine what it would be like to be surrounded by crime like this... it seems quite like a common thing to happen too.

I searched and nothing came up.

That is about as close as I can describe the emotions your post made me feel.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

Imagine being one of the kingpins behind it all. Like you pretty much own the country. It's like Pablo Escobar, the guy had a networth of like 7 billion. The sheer amounts of control and power are colossal. You can take control of what you want, you can bribe who you want. And if they can't be bribed they can be shot. As Escobar would say; Plat o plomo?

What a life though. Sip maragaritas on a beautiful mexican beach only to get nickel plated copper injected in your skull.

Why is that?
With no consumers to buy drugs (demand), there would be no use for holding onto the drugs (supply), let alone produce them. Pretty simple concept there, mah boy.

The obvious solution is to murder all drug users.

There is no emoticon for "I don't give a fuck what you think" so I can't do the same. Sorry.

OOOOOOOOORRRR, Now stay with me, they could just NOT sell drugs. Or do it in a way where the DON'T kill somebody. There is no excuse for what they are doing. They are sick, murdering ****s. The drugs just fund it.

Yet, when someone proposes a law to help stop it, everyone cries racist...

Proposes a law to stop drug taking? I think they already have those...

No, the law that let's police check if you are there illegally, in a state that is filled with illegals...

*There.

Learn English before you move to the damn country. Honestly.


And I have no idea why you brought up illegal immigration. This thread is about crazy Mexican drug wars.

Assuming you're talking about that backwards-ass law in Arizona, it just gave police the power to harass all Hispanic people. You can't tell if someone is an illegal immigrant by looking at them. Given that the USA annexed Arizona from Mexico, a lot of Hispanic people who live there have probably been there for longer than you white people. They should introduce a law letting them kick out all the white immigrants.

Control of resources usually takes some measure of physical force. The main reason for the violence is due to money issues (debts) or fighting for control of distribution methods.

Sealing up the borders would make drug prices skyrocket, allowing drug kingpins to make higher profits.
You'll see that they (drug profiteers) don't like talk about legalization of drugs and immigration amnesty for some reason...

I'm pretty sure Mexico would get pissed if we went there and kicked out everybody that wasn't a US citizen.

The national law is much more discriminatory.
You don't see illegal Canadians, Brits, French (well, maybe them), Germans, Dutch, etc getting deported by the boatload.
"Illegal" immigrant has one connotation, and that is "dirty Central American, but all of them look the same, so therefore they are Mexican".

Arizona law is mostly an attack on the business owners who want to hire the undocumented for a cheap buck.
I think there might be a few clauses that give the police an extra boost to carry out this law, such as detailing migrant workers that look like there are here illegally.
So it allows them to co-operate with INS much more efficiently.

There is also the potential for this to be abused.
Conflict of interests, like police officiers being bribed by Farmer A to take down Farmer B's labour force sounds plausible. This applies to any business with "illegals" in the mix.
Perhaps they don't even need to be bribed; a simple anonymous tip could do the trick.
Law enforcement can be and has been used to destroy the competition. This could be very widespread in a place like Arizona, which is a supposed haven for "illegals".

This. The drugs trade's not going away and it's better for the people of Mexico that it exists under the supervision of the State rather than in the complete control of the kind of people who carry out massacres when they need to prove a point.

No kidding, I live in El Paso, the sister city to Cuidad Juarez. Juarez is probably one of the most dangerous cities in the world right now. There have been over 5,000 people killed (innocent casualties and cartel on cartel violence) over the past 2 years. Now, El Paso is considered one of the safest cities in America, but people tend to think that it is just as bad as Juarez because of the media and our careless governor who report the wrong facts. Just last week a stray bullet from a 30 minute gunfight in Juarez hit our university campus, and of course the local news stations made sure to get everyone paranoid.

Although, it is sad to hear that someone you know was killed because they were either mistaken for a rival gang member or just unfortunately caught in the middle of a hit. A lot of El Pasoans have close family members across the border, and we can't really go visit that city anymore due to the violence.
