    I'll hazard a guess that the local cartel tried to extort the Mormon Church. The church refused.

    I was reading a brief that is stating it was a case of mistaken identity due to the family traveling in a convoy of vehicles.


    They weren't going over there and they weren't visiting. They lived there as a group of Mormons.

    Here's my opinion...

    The cartels are only getting stronger while we finance their growth. Currently, Mexico's president and the military are nothing more than figureheads fronting for a narco-state. If we don't do something about it soon down there, we're going to have to do something about it here later.

    I don’t go there anymore.
    Have gone for over 20 yrs.
    It’s not the same. It’s a lawless brutal country.
    My Mexican friends have lost a Brother (shot in the head and dumped in the street) He would have been a potential witness to a crime so they killed him just to be safe.
    They also pd a very large ransom for their God son and never seen him again.
    They are afraid to be in their business after dark.
    The young thugs and their hoe’s have taken over the nice places in the tourist areas. They are very brazen. They come in and the tourists leave.
    It’s like they dare you to look at them.
    Trust me, Its not the same as it once was.
    Chapo kept things safe for the non cartel folks.
    That’s all done now, everybody is free game.

    Maybe the cartels got tired of being woken up by the doorbell on Saturday afternoons by folks giving away pamphlets?

    They just need some more gun control laws. Then everything will be OK down there.

    When in Latin America or in Africa part of the political power is given to the natives, law and order collapse.

    It is only backed up by history, years and years of history.

    If by clean up this mess you mean drone every known cartel member overnight, confiscate all their assets around the globe by any means necessary, the items you can’t take you destroy. Then by all means go break as many drug dealer and corrupt politicians heads as possible.

    If by clean this mess up you mean pissing tax $$ down a black hole, train soldiers to fight us and escort drugs and folks north... no thanks. Money better spent wiping butts, at least you get some return on investment that way.



    We have had troops in that craphole since the 1980’s and before. Still pissing $$ and young lives away on a never ending mission. Now you want to spend more non existent $$ and destroy more lives in another third world craphole? Sorry. We are supposed to learn from our mistakes, not double down on them.

    Want to protect Americans from cartel violence south of the border. Ban tourism to Mexico line we did to Cuba. Teach Americans that third world crap homes aren’t good places to raise a family. Actually protect the border from penetrations by drug mules. Far better than pissing away more of my future grand kids’ wealth.

    I recently watched a documentary on Mormon families living in Mexico and the dangers they faced from the cartels. The documentary showed that some family members were kidnapped and they didn't pay ransom. If they payed the ransom, everyone would get kidnapped. The documentary gave the impression that the Mormons would not give in to the Cartel demands.

    Since when have they ever done that (?)
    The news today, reminds of a bunch of snotty nose brats looking for attention by spinning and kicking their feet for attention just to get heard.
