  2. Great stuff, I can`t belive the amount of meth these people pump out, meth is the devil. And I dont mean its the devils drug or it makes you do devilish things, no, it is the devil itself, the most evil drug I have ever met.

  3. no wonder its nothing but murder. and mayham all that fuckin money they are making they making money during a presidential election all those millions of dollar they confiscated. wat about the millions this month that was spent and not found and who ever said zetas are just killers these bicths getting money wow Mexico is not effected by the economy they are doin more then killing and snitching them sicarios getting paid

  4. Thats alot of cash the Zs had,,,,

  5. Mexicos CARTELES = Satanic cult distribution of Satan= Drugs=METH.

  6. Only one kilo of coca!?

  7. It's great to hear about the military & know that they are doing great work. They risk their lives every day, I applaud them ...


  8. Really does not seem like that much. For sure it is better than nothing but does it really change anything

  9. The jaguar was what got my attention.

  10. Want things to change simply legalize drugs use the tax revenue to treat addicts as a health problem not as a criminal one. N if people want to die of od let em but let it n pay taxes not in the corner or in a dark alley. Trust me this would reduce the criminapity here n in.the us by more then 50% guaranteed. Because in us 80% of arrestees and encarcerations are for simple possession of cannabiss. No criminal act nor violence was involved.just showing some facts.
