No wonder people flee here like cockroaches
I was referring to: 'Not our problem.'
I'd imagine if we removed all threads on /pol/ that aren't of any relevance to a certain person, it'd be quite the empty place. I'd rather read about shot Mexican presidents than having threads about useless and boring topics, such as Trump, Clinton, refugees, the happening, gun laws, .. boring shit like that.
I mean, yeah ill give you that. The slave labor, the sex trafficking, the epic levels of corruption, the drug trafficking, the extortion and gambling. All of these things are good metrics for a criminal organization, not a country with elected officials.
Dont get me wrong every country has its sins, the US has plenty. Mexico on the other hand just doesn't even try, and it tries to sell itself as equals to western nations.
We talked about this yesterday and other shit going on in the country, check the archive if you're interested, also, this isn't the first time that something like that has happened.
>Well, wouldn't that leave most of /pol/ to be empty discussions about meaningless shit??
Mexico is a failed nation. It only exists in a semi-zombified state, propped up for the sole interests of cartel strongmen and foreign corporations looking for unregulated revenue sources. Meanwhile, its citizens literally scavenge from garbage piles of other nations..
Pretty much this.
Wtf Mexico? People are too comfortable in my country to do shit about shit, but Christ, what's it going to take for the Mexican people to step up and take their country back?
that's what happens when you have tons of dirt poor people. Hiring assassins is easy peasy.
The elite in the usa think that mexicans are a docile labor force they can pay low wages to. But that won't be the case forever. This will start happening here.
Yeah, Mexico is truly the Wild West. This is what happens when you disarm the populace and the bandit kings take over.
Mexico has lost lots of mayors this way; journalists too. An entire busload of college kids disappeared last year, along with two teachers, and the federal government may be involved. Most believe they saw something they shouldn't and there is a mass grave somewhere. Can you imagine that happening here?
>Gisela Mota was murdered Saturday, one day after she took office as mayor of Temixco.
>the assassins entered Mota's home, beat her and then shot her in the head, according to El Economista. Paramedics arrived at 7:50 a.m. and confirmed she was dead.
>Afterward, the suspects tried to flee in a van, but police followed in hot pursuit and exchanged fire with the suspects before killing two of them.
this literally happened a few hours ago. try not to forget this for the rest of the day
Your mind is full of fuck.
These were 4 heavily armed cartel pros. They were sent to execute an incumbent mayor, through state security beefed up since about 6 other mayors have been killed in the same way.
Hiring random poors for gunwork is radically different, and it's also invisible. Unless the "plot" itself is uncovered and publicized, it comes off as random home invasion or robbery gone wrong.
It's becoming more and more recognized as a "failed narco-state". The US has cordial relations with Mexico because we're addicted to Pemex oil. -- oil being the one thing besides tourism Mexico has in abundance.
I've never understood it. Why not turn your country into a hotel resort for the entire world? Tourism is a tremendously profitable industry.
But...we've got surfers going down to baja thinking they're going to just have a surfer's paradise weekend, and end up being beaten up or killed, and their van torched. Our local radio station 91X (which has its radio tower in Mexico) even advertises American tourism, reporting their "new freeway is heavily patrolled and safe for foreign tourists". I mean, when your radio adverts start sounding like Mega City 1 public service announcements, you know you've got issues with crime.
San Diego here; 12 miles from the border.
>It's America's fault for giving money to the cartels!
Fucking dindu tier. If your police, army, and government weren't hopelessly corrupt at every level the cartels wouldn't even be a problem. No wonder your country is such a hole.
>Democratically elected mayor murdered
>She was ugly so it doesn't matter
>Dirty Mexican poster still confused as to why everyone hates his country
>He's too poor and dumb to solve problems so he mocks a female that gave her life to try and clean up corruption
At least she wasn't a fucking coward like everyone else in your terrible country. I truly cannot wait to have a wall built and your dogshit parasite family members deported.
There was a town in the South last year that took away a gun shipment that was bound for some local drug lord, and they started defending themselves. It worked.
She was a mayor, from the lefty party, the party that want to convert Mexico into Venezuela 2.0, I am not saying that she deserved to be killed but the idiot refused police bodyguards and a armed driver because she believed it was a political privilege. The killers were captured and killed afterwards after a confrontation with the police so the crime didn't go unpunished
There has always been a tremendous struggle in Mexico between rich and poor. Mexico has no middle class.
This doesn't necessarily equate to "conservative" or "liberal", although there are those politics. All of central and South America have been a hotbed for Marxist campaigning, and the American CIA has always worked to undermine that.
Not preaching for any choir here except law and order. I would like nothing more than to see Mexico become a modern nation.
This only happened because Americans buy American-grown drugs that did not come through Mexican cartels. Mexico never had any institutional failure or societal mismanagement before Americans started smoking pot.
