    1. Yes, the only thing you hear about is CDN in northern Coahuila shoot outs with the government.

    2. Is there any other cartel in Coahuila rather then Cdn? I have heard Ncdj los Aztecas, cds los Cabrera, cdg, cjng have made presence in Coahuila but i dont know anything about them having control.

    3. Shit I’m more terrified about the Mexican federales than the actual cartel.

    4. @5:07

      If there was major roads/highways from northern Coahuila to Chihuahua it probably be war in that state.

      CDS might have Torreón not sure but for many years it was dominated by Zetas.

      CDG does have a low key presence.

      CDN has the Piedras Negras plaza which drugs and human smuggling cross there.

  2. When you’re measuring **atrocities** by the month in triple digits, you know you’ve still got major issues. Will Mexico ever be normal in terms of the number of atrocities? I bet all of western Europe (Italy included) hasn’t cracked 10 a month since the 40’s

  3. 12:54 when upper level billionaires, politicos, military businessmen and "foreign investors" are bitching for their share of the pie, you get to see "cartel fights" all over the place and to hear excuses and blames from those in power like FECAL DEFENDER JAVIER CORRAL, NEW GOVERNOR OF chiguauguau.
