I can’t say I’m that surprised, the cartels reach has remained strong and killing politicians that aren’t on the take or are opposition to them is what they always seem to do.


I’m shocked there’s so few comments here. Are they all targeted by the same group? Are there so many opposition groups that many politicians are targeted? It’s a subject that I know next to nothing about; other than, don’t ever cross a cartel. No thank you. I’ll pass GO without collecting $200 if that were the case.


i’m curious what the life of an everyday mexican is like, because i only hear of drug cartels and frequent killings so i assume living there is like some mad max shit.


the citizens suffer everyday.. how sad.


Mexico is a failed state.
