AMLO's "Hugs" won't end Mexican Mayhem

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat TY GUS from WSJ

The drug war created the crime problem. The president is making it worse


The elegant Las Lomas neighborhood of Mexico Metropolis, with its sun-dappled sidewalks and upscale houses is likely one of the federal district’s extra serene settings. So it shocked the nation when an armed group unleashed a commando-style assault there on June 26.

Equally surprising was the target of the assault, Mexico Metropolis’s police chief, Omar García Harfuch. Two of his bodyguards had been killed, together with a passerby, within the barrage of gunfire. Mr. García Harfuch was severely wounded.

Statistically, the incident isn’t even a blip. In 2019 there has been a report 35,588 homicides nationwide. Within the first 4 months of this yr, was up 2.4%.

The killing is a continuation of greater than a decade of drug-cartel violence. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador took workplace in December 2018 promising to pacify the nation however isn’t having a lot of luck.

The centerpiece of AMLO’s blueprint to defeat the cartels is “hugs not bullets.” Because the slogan suggests, the president lays the blame for violence on social issues. Constant together with his ideology, he prescribes wealth redistribution because of the remedy. This method is proving an ineffective safety technique.
Mexico’s crime drawback emanates from the prohibition of the leisure use of narcotics and excessive consumption amongst individuals. This creates worth within the product and, as a result of demand is strong, it generates fabulous revenue for transnational legal teams. 

Flush with weapons, expertise, and organizational networks, Mexican crime networks have profitably added extortion and kidnapping to their portfolios.

Companies giant and small make common funds to those syndicates. 

In some locations the following is routine, the cartels are the de facto authorities amassing “taxes.” 

Some tolls on personal highways are imposed by cartels. There are locations within the nation that have gangs' drive around in open vehicles brandishing firearms to declare their control of the territory.

CJNG had good reason to want the 38-year-old police chief gone. He has prevented established presence to the Jalisco mob and its allied forces in Mexico City Metropolis. 

In his earlier submit as head of the Felony Investigation Company in Mexico’s Legal professional Normal’s workplace, his work led to the seize of a number of cartel honchos.

The Jalisco cartel chief’s son, who in February was extradited to the U.S. In early June the cartel exacted revenge for that extradition by gunning down federal judge Uriel Villegas alongside together with his spouse in view of their two younger daughters.

However the braveness of judges and law-enforcement officers, it’s late within the challenge  for Mexico to avoid wasting itself from this reign of terror.

To do this AMLO’s advisers have to persuade him that the way forward for Mexican democracy will depend on abandoning his one-man rule and constructing sturdy, accountable establishments on the federal, state, and municipal stage.

Efforts to enhance safety had been undermined by former President Enrique Peña Nieto, who took resources away from the federal police and politicized regulation enforcement.

Enter AMLO's National Guard, while diminishing the Mexican Navy

AMLO has precipitated additional injury by disbanding the federal police and changing it with a national guard.

His new guard is not prepared for prime time and maybe in violation of the structure, he has put the military in control of it. Fearing human-rights violations, AMLO additionally has been reluctant to make use of the guard to conduct themselves decisively to get better control of territory dominated by criminals.

There might be no peace if Mexico doesn’t restore the presence in the state on cartel-controlled turf. 

And even when the army offers the boots on the ground  it delays the intense work of skilled state and native police, prosecutors, judges, prisons, and intelligence, it’s counterproductive.

Mexican intelligence is healthier than it was 20 years in the past, however, it is inadequate to acquire peace. 

The Mexican navy has the nation’s strongest intelligence capabilities, however, AMLO has decreased its function.

AMLO could also be studying and learning  from his errors, however, time will not be on his side.

  2. Los abrazos son para familia e amigos. Ya basta de tonterias...hay que describirlo como es, Presidente PENDEJO. Las poemas de el ni sirven como obituario para los miles más defuntos que hemos sufrido desde que llegó. Al verlo este pinche amlo [minisculo con proposito porque su nombre ni merece letra mayuscula], me da ganas de agarrarlo por el cuello hasta que la unica cosa que sale de su voca sea paz, sino silencio.

    Gracias por permirteme compartir con Ustedes.

    1. AMLOs policy is for dreamers and idealism,it is patently obvious that things have gotten much worse,if he is no pragmatist things will continue as is.He has to change his policy and root cartels out,make them the hunted,cartels are taking advantage of his ridiculous outlook and policy of hug not bullets?Unbelievably simplistic?

    1. Another ignorant in the crowd, Obrador has been in office for more than a year, and has put no effort with his cabinet to lowered the high homicide rate of 2019, which was approximately 36,000 , but on the attempted killing of the Mexican police chief, he did let them investigate and the killers were were caught.

    2. 8:32 criminal matters are the job of law enforcement, (Judiciary) much more than of the CEO Presidente de la República whose job is more about the Administration, but AMLO is leading anticorruption campaigns in his administration and prosecuting crimes of the past.

  17. BELIEVE it or NOT Mexico is not even run by MEXICANS, in reality it's RUN by AMERICAN and European investors.. Mexican presidents are PUT in place to SUITE and TAKE CARE of those investors. If AMLO was REALLY TRYING to change 🇲🇽 he would get murdered and that's a FACT.. TOO much MONEY involved..
    Look UP mexican presidents in cults I forgot the other name for the skulls and bones..
    Notice how EVERY MEXICAN president ends up retiring in Europe?

    Onother fun FACT, ALL American presidents are RELATED they have the same blood line from a king from England EXCEPT one and it's NOT Obama...

  18. todos aqui le tiran a AMLO. y no se an puesto a pensar que en los lugares mas violentos son gobernados por el PAN o algun partido afiliado a el
    PAN. y estos no hacen nada por que estan asta el tronco en complicidad. AMLO es el mejor presidente que a tenido mexico en los ultimos tiempos modernos. la frase abrazos no balazos es para aquellos adolecentes que no tienen oportunidad y toman el camino malo. da apoyos para que no haya la necesidad de tomar el mal camino ya que los gobiernos anteriores no ayudaban en nada y no te dejaba otra salida. EN FIN NOSOTROS LOS MEXICANOS SABEMOS COMO VIVIMOS Y A QUIEN APOYAMOS. NO IMPORTA LAS ENCUESTAS FALSAS QUE MUESTRAN. LA MEJOR ECUESTA ES LA GENTE ALREDEDOR QUE TE DICE A QUIEN APOYA.

  19. What the hell ALMO, had decreased the Navy's intelligence function to fight the war on drugs. No wonder people are dying everyday, bribes keep coming in, but his people keep getting slaughtered

  20. I know people love to blame AMLO but didn't Calderón go hard after the carteles? It's what pretty much started the rise in homicides... The president can't do shit! Any law or military that he sends out to "curb" the problem is corrupt and can also be bought off while committing their own crimes... México's problem goes way beyond what a president can do. Citizens need to arm themselves and fight the government...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Maybe I misunderstand and you are recounting someone else's position here, but Chivis do you really view García Harfuch as a clean official doing a good job for security? Considering his family ties for generations to some of the most infamous atrocities in Mx history and his own involvement with the perpetrators of the Iguala case. It would certainly be a new pattern for the cartels to be carrying out hits in Df against top officials without them playing an active role for a rival power, as has been the case generally when such people are targeted.

  22. Back when La Federacion was in control things were fairly calm. Hate to say it but the Mexican Govt should have/continue backdoor channels with CDS to eliminate CJNG who are more out of control.
