Video uploaded by AXTECA2010

According to the tally kept by Reforma, the death toll from the drug war passed the 10,000 mark this week, reaching 10,035 killed since the start of the year.

This surpasses 2009′s full year record by more than 50%, with almost two months still to go. (On the sporadic occasions when the government has released it’s own statistics they have been significantly higher than the tallies kept by the news organizations.)

Additionally, according to the National Commission of Human Rights, the amount of 2010 Drug War deaths to date is equal to the amount of drug violence deaths registered during the entire six year term of former President Vicente Fox.

  5. This is so sad. Alot of people dying because of greed. Bothers killing brothers, family killing their own and they don't even know it. The things people do, and continue doing. This is prophecy being ful-filled right before our eyes. And it's not going to stop until the "KING OF KINGS" comes back.
