I was touched by the video, but for this war to be over we have to kill the criminals. Porfirio Diaz said once "Matenlos en Caliente" (kill them at will or kill them on the spot) I believe in Felipe Calderon, I believe on the PAN on this coming elections vote for freedom vote for Josefina Vázquez Mota.

Very touching Javier but of little use. For example, Don Alejo was very courageous, a hero, but his family lives in fear in hiding.

The people must rise up against the criminals and kill them.

Mexico Must re-consider gun ownership and allow the responsible citizen to defend themselves,then resistance of criminals by the public will mean something.

You know if you allow the public to buy guns, it will only make it easier for the cartels to arm themselves. They wont have to make trips to Texas or Guatemala to get guns, they can buy them "in house". How do you determine who is a responsible citizen? Should the police decide who is responsible, since they are very corrupt themselves? And even if the average Mexican citizen could own a pistol or even an AK, do you think they could or would fight the cartels, who are armed with RPGs and hand grenades, 50 cal machine guns and more? Your argument lacks a logical backing!

The average citizen in Mexico is not going spend money on a significant weapon for self defense, even if legalized. They cannot afford it.

This is a moving video, and it's an important reminder that the victims of crime are more than names, they are sons and daughters, with families who are devastated by their loss.

Javier Sicilia has had to make quite a stink, just to get Felipe Calderon's attention, and Calderon still seems unable to acknowledge that his failed "war" has left thousands of innocent victims.

The people must over throw this corrupted government. Cartel's are not the problem, corruption is root of all this bullshit!

Stop blaming calderon, its easy and of lazy thinking to put the blame on one man. Being a narco-joto is a fad in this times,thats slowly dying.why not keep an eye on your punkass teenage kids. Because they are pretty much the ones doing all the killing. Corruption is everywhere it dont matter the party but PRI sold their plazas (even twice) knowing it was going to get ugly,once it did, they blamed the presidencia just in time for election. GORTARI EL CUCUY is back ,pulling the strings of PENA NIETO .

This fucking war is going to end whenever usa goberment want it to they fucking sell the weapons to all of the cartels think about that. If they decide not to sell weapons anymore to the zetas for example this cartel will go down why cause if they no longer have access to ak 47s or any other rifle and ammo for them once they used their last bullet for their rifles they will be pretty much fucked.

Repeat criminals around the world are armed REGARDLESS of laws,fact. The State CAN NOT protect the person from attack,fact. Prosecution of criminals is after the crime,fact. The only true chance a person has to survive is to be responsible for the persons own survival,fact. Weak needy people are fearful and want/need to be protected,and fear doing for themselves,fact.
