Michoacan’s Most Wanted Drug Kingpin: Mexico’s Hot Land (Dispatch 1)

    I've probably watched a dozen or so of these Vice videos on the Mexican cartels this week. I have too many thoughts to put into one post, but one unexpected thing that has happened. I'm currently a big proponent of gun control. I never felt that taking guns away is necessary, but I did not see the need for citizens to have AR-15s and numerous, stockpiles of weapons. One 9 mm & a shotgun should be sufficient for a household… But, I can see here in Mexico their gun laws now work against them in many ways… That said, I don't think it's as simple as a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. The underlying problem is Mexico has become a Narco-state. When the government is corrupt to that level, the citizens are in clear & present danger without the weapons they need to defend themselves… I think my stance on gun control may soften the more I learn about this… All of that said, we still have a very serious problem in America with school shootings, and I don't think we have a lot of great answers for how to stop it. I also can't just ignore the fact that selling more guns is good for the NRA who is funded by gun manufacturers. It became cliche during the 2016 presidential campaign, but follow the money is a great way to start any investigation.

    Unfortunately these people probably are the cartels themselves or work directly for them because what happens is instead of extorting everyone in that area illegally for their money, they create these so called vigilante groups saying they are protecting the people and now they vigilante group goes home to home or business to business collecting “donations” of any sort to “help” keep the people safe. It’s just a front and a smarter way for them to extort the people in that area for money and goods.

    Bullshit! Armed citizens means less crime. You can’t trust the Mexican government so let the people arm themselves and take care of business.

  • Why you mad ?

    I was born in Morelia but my mom brought me to the states when I was still a new born basically ( I was 2 months old , born in early June came to the states in the late days of August )

    Even they are armed and gun laws in Mexico are way more strict than the ones here like literally, they only have 1 gun store in the whole country.

    This women tinges everything these people do with something bad …She said they stole weapons but they did not they confiscated and repurposed them…
     She said in Columbia the citizens got out of control after fighting the drug gangs but wasn't it out of control when the gangs were raping the young girls and murdering their fathers anyways….
    Always a negative from her about what and how they are trying to save their communities …Doing the job that the government was failing to do ….
    I applaud these people and say to them do not get to close to the government for many of them are the problem or you would not have had to start your own law enforcement if they were doing it right…

    Isn't that ironic that the United States government is ran by Knights Templar AKA Freemasons, and Vigilantes are killing Knights Templar in Mexico thank you Mexicans for taking up the fight!

    Total cost to tax payers per year to maintain illegal immigration $116 billion
    The law has been in effect for years and all past presidents agree . It is against the law to be in the usa illegally . Tax payers pay for there school and food via wic and welfare and prison time not to mention the drugs coming into to the usa . If were ok with paying higher taxes and letting the mexican goverment ignore the issue and let the cartels get richer . Lets knock the wall down . .

    Don’t use SUV’s or Toyota’s they are for the war against terror on the Middle East you anti Semite scum bags.

    The government is working with cartel , only reason they were “ endorsed “ by the government is because they now have to register and listen to the government unlike when they weren’t “ endorsed and running around actually scaring off the cartel . Now it’s just the cartel telling the government what to do and the government telling these men to stay away from areas or let cartel do what they want . That’s how the corrupt system works over there . So when she was in fact riding with cartel the full time

    The truth is that power corrupts and these people are technically the cartel themselves. Even the Knights Templars were a vigilante before they went rogue.

    The solution is not more guns or even a group, its a social problem. The majority of consumers are from the United States and Western Europe.

    First either tackle it as a social problem or sell it on pharmacy shelves. You cannot stop people taking them and you can't stop people selling them either.

    Fucking Vice loser hipsters look at beat up pistols and semi auto rifles like they are nukes with a timer counting down. Stay in Brooklyn you commie morons. Vice is a joke now beyond your profile with teens who buy your shit and still think you are cool like when you left your socialist worldview out of it while the owners profit. (Shane)

    This is a new cartel in case you foreigners dont know. I'm referring to the vigilante group. Less ruthless than Knights Templar but a cartel nonetheless.
