Mexican Military Using Flyers in Drug War
Reported by: Lisa Cortez
The Mexican military is using a new tactic to stop cartel violence and gain support from people in border towns. They're handing out flyers with a simple message: Don't help the cartels, don't give them places to hide, back the Mexican military and help protect Mexico instead.
Mexican marines passed out the flyers on the streets of Reynosa this weekend. It starts by saying, “Enough already! Don't make pacts with cartel members.”
It says, “Support the Mexican military and with your help there will be no street or community where the criminals can hide. Show us where they are and we will arrest them.”
The flyer urges citizens to help stop the robberies, kidnappings and violence plaguing Reynosa and other border towns. The flyer also lists phone numbers and even an e-mail address where people can submit information anonymously.
