  1. Maybe a drone's surprise pkg on AMLO's residence might get his attention? The people dont deserve this bullshit or amlo either!

    1. Hey hey hey fat Alberto
      Only bribes from cartels catch his attention. Recently he bought his son, a 70,000 Meercedes Benz and a million dollars home in USA, ask yourself how can he have that type of money??????

    2. I'm talking a "HEY HEY HEY!" party pkg from "the people of Mexico, with an explosive example of the love that THEY are receiving from THEIR local animals. Make the problem his, too!

    3. ALMO invest his small wages in crypto bro.

    4. AMLO creating Net's for extra $5.75

  2. Interesting, another steed stepping up to contest "the pig face". Noveno and el trakas are one to say! Ponte cuidado!

  3. Another day of Homicides, anything and everything goes in Mexico, rarely punished by the law and citizens can't defend themselves as they have no weapons.

  4. Fuck it. If I was in Mexico, I would get a gun by hook or by crook and let the chips fall. These bastards might get me but I'm taking some with me.
    Fuck that unarmed shit.
    I understand that millions of Mexicans live successful lives untouched by drug violence. We only hear the bad stuff from the media's mantra of "if it bleeds, it leads."
    Still, do whatever means necessary to protect your life and your family. Doing a stretch in a Mexican jail for firearms possession is a calculated risk. Better that than the sheer terror that seizes you when the bandits come knocking.

    1. James Brown glad to hear you would take action, to protect your life. Stupid laws protect the Cartels more that it's law abiding citizens. That's why it's easy for criminals to kill anyone, as they know they have no guns to shoot back.

    2. Yep Brown
      It's funny how a group of criminals will mob up, to kill one unarmed person. But when the criminal is by himself, he acts innocent.
