Study: Young Boys Dreaming to Become Narcos and Sicarios

        Murdered YouTuber "El Pirata de Culiacán", a role model for young children, study finds

Children in northern Mexico dream of being drug traffickers and assassins according to a study by university students. The lack of consequences for crimes and the lack of values ​​could be the main cause.

In the state of Coahuila in northern Mexico with the United States , children dream of becoming drug traffickers , assassins and drug users according to a recently published study.

These are young, between 5 and 11 year old children, who live in the northwest area of ​​the capital of that state, Saltillo , are those who yearn to consume drugs and also be part of an organized crime band. 

This tough conclusion was reached by university students from the Faculty of Social Work of Coahuila , who for two years have participated in the project " Looking to the Future ", in which they analyze the living conditions of minors and with which they seek to promote the development and welfare of children.
"They have emotional problems, lack of culture because their economic situation does not allow them to know it. They register emotions that are not controlled, explode at the slightest motive, there are  issues where the outlook of the future is addiction," the students in charge of the study told Sin Embargo .

"When we started talking to them they showed us that they want to be part of drugs and crime, " the researchers added.

The study says:  "growing up in an adverse environment, children strengthen their family ties to the degree of aspire to be like their elders, in this case, mainly people with addictions or linked to  organized delincuency ".

Plus, in recent years there has been little or few consequences for crimes; themes especially popular in television series, narco-corridos, telenovelas and influencial YouTubers who  emerge that boast of ostentatious articles and/or in songs as well as the coexistence with people related to drug trafficking .

Such is the case of Juan Luis Lagunas Rosales the famous " Pirata de Culiacán ", a young man who, before being killed, showed a way of life full of excesses, which made him popular in social networks. In the end he was supposedly ordered killed by Nemesio Oseguera " El Mencho ", leader of the Jalisco Cartel Nueva Generación .

  2. I have never stepped foot in mexico and for some reason I cant help but feel like I care more than it's leaders and elites. If I didn't read this site everyday I would have no idea this shit went on in mexico and I bet if more people knew they would be up in arms about it.

  3. Such ignorance overcoming many young people today who glorify such destructive behavior. However, this study does not surprise me of its findings. Society has embraced narco culture, drug usage and killings as the only alternative to poverty.
    Putting aside religious and educational principles to be set aside.
    The economic hardships in areas of great poverty are most likely to fall victims to this problem globally.
    Choices are few for many where society has neglected its responsibilities.

    Nice article Yaqui

    Note: social circumstances will often determine ones lifestyle.

  5. Social, economic and environmental factors are often the product of one's self destruction.
    Imagine if studies were conducted worldwide demographically and geographically in all sectors of society. The results will often side with the product of its environment.
    A physiological difference between those environments will be evident.

  6. Very sad ...if Mexico eradicated the current cartels today, it would still take 2-3 generations at minimum to erase the social acceptance of the current culture.

  7. To all the teenagers out there . Stay away from becomining narco or sicario.

    Someone has to protect los patrones and the CDS empire .

  8. This dude was my favorite. RIP. Did one of the dumbest things you could ever do, and paid the price. Still a cowardly way to get revenge, but it's all relative to who you are dealing with.

  9. I heard mencho didn't kill pirata, but I'm never 100% on this narco gossip.

  10. This is scary but totally not surprising to me. When I was 12 I wanted to play in the NHL ( I’m from Canada), so it makes total sense that a young kid in Mexico would either aspire to be a Mexican soccer star or a narco. The scary part is that how do you change it so they want to be doctors, lawyers, own their own small businesses? Well, a better education system would be a start.

  11. What did they dream about becoming before? Corn farmers? Because that's pretty much all that's available in many parts of Mexico.

    This should not be surprising to anyone who is familiar with the media consumption patterns in Mexico.

    Off topic but this just in https://www.sfgate.com/news/world/article/Mexico-releases-spy-agency-s-files-on-current-13772153.php

  14. Why not when you think about it? Why struggle your whole life slogging your guts out to barely make ends meet in a country where poverty and corruption is widespread? Hell its not easy making an honest living in most developed countries much less Mexico. Just live fast and enjoy the narco lifestyle and steal as much as you want without worrying about police. All the women and excitement you could wish for even if few really do last in the long run. I can see the lure for boys. I'm not saying its right but the narco culture glamour makes it too hard not to make it tempting. Hopelessness breeds fantasies of grandeur and excess.

    Juan rosales might have come across as the baddest in his vids but it's obvious he was far from the smartest. Yep that's right go ahead and insult a majorly powerful drug lord in the same country as you. No risks there at all. He's lucky he was just shot and not kidnapped then slowly chainsawed to death or something. He got off easy.

    I really wish mexico would get it together it's just ridiculous how bad it's gotten. I used to enjoy the
    Country until the drug war got out of hand now I won't set foot in the place for love nor money.

  16. So many adults that we can point at for being at fault. This is the result of flashy singers,radio stations, lack of education which means ignorance was passed on through family generations, lack strict male figure in household,lack of jobs, shitty upringing in shitty conditions thanks to parents. EL Ponchis and Pirata rip , both didnt even know fathers or mother am i correct, thank you.

  19. Mexico is a country with no opportunities so the only way to achieve upward social mobility is to join these cartels. This is the leading reason on why young Mexican boys aspire to be the next "el chapo".

  21. Heartbreaking news. When the education fails to give a life people tend to move towards criminal and inhumane activities. A time will come where they run out of peoples to recruit for gang. If things go like this, Mexico will eventually lead to decline in population. It’s saddening to know that kids who use to dream of cartoons and sports have been pulled towards drugs & crime activities. More than the criminals, we need to blame media for this worse, media is the bridge that makes people understand everything. I guess so media and other entertainment programs boasts about drugs, capos and crime boss as a fancy one. Government should ban programs that boasts and supports criminals and related activities.

    1. Censorship of these things you speak violates freedom of speech for many. Legal battles have and are still being waged by those morally conservative groups with the hopes of creating a better society.
      Where does one draw a line for expressing one's freedoms?

    2. Just because we have freedom doesn't mean we can shit on streets. Even freedom activists bath and shit in closed doors. As the saying goes excess of anything good for nothing. Matter of safety is above freedom

    3. The line on censorship should be drawn only when someone is encouraged to hate and or cause harm to someone else.
      For example it is ok to say immigrants might cause problems here in the U.S. IF such and such happens when they arrive.
      It is NOT ok to say "these people are the very worst that their country has to offer they are criminals, rapists, murderer etc..." or classifying those same immigrants like they are already known to be actual factual CONVICTED criminals is encouraging hate towards them.

  22. So sad that drug trafficking has been changing the culture of Mexico! I can only imagine what these kids have to experience on a daily basis in some of these high violence areas. Brainwashed by narcocorridos and stupid narco messages claiming they help and protect the community. Its stories like this that should motivate people to stop using the drugs. Glad I quit 16 years ago. But unfortunately, when I was using, I wouldn't of given two shits about kids in Mexico.

    1. Narco corridos are no different from Gangster Rap. Same message is embedded with kidnapping, shootings and killings. Along with drug usage.
      The era of moral responsibility is gone.

  23. Thats onother reason why sinaloas hate michoacan because mencho killed one of their idols
    "el pirata de culoacan"

  24. Yeh they want to be the next el chapo. They seem to conveniently forget about countless thousands who tried to do the exact same thing and the closest they got a short lived few weeks or months taste of the narco world but ended up in cemetaries or simply thrown in a mass clandestine grave like it was a trash landfill. Every young hot head thinks they are somehow oh so much different and so much more special to end up chopped into dog meat like that.

    I get it to an extent I think we were all young and naive once but I was never THAT naive!!!
