  1. OK kids time to move..

  2. mexico is starting to be like one of those end of the world movies where everbody goes crazy

  3. only a matter of time before it happens in the US.

  4. This is seems like now they are killing innocent people too, just to be killing...

  5. The guy found in the car may not have been as innocent as one may think, it may have been connected to the El Diario killing, sometimes narcos kill their own assassins to take heat off their backs for some heinous crime, its not like they would just hand a guy over for arrest, he might turn state witness. As for the rest it is hard to say, sometimes the victims are totally innocent, sometimes they are innocent but some of their family members were involved in dirty business, and sometimes it is a settling of accounts for reasons unknown.

  6. This reality is so sad.

  7. EXACTOMUNDO...Let us not get fooled here every one of these killings had a purpose involved in the dark world of crime . They must have done something dark or connected to the dark. The sadness is the women and children killed,
    They have shamed the rules of the real Mafioso " women & children are not part of the game" . Corruption is the factor of death. Mexico will never get fixed till the Gov fixes themselves.
