Realidad Zacatecas


  1. Whoever ever thought up that police truck design, where the back is reserved for officers to just stand there (or by times, they also can sit) COMPLETELY UNPROTECTED in a country that more or less can be described as cartel country in its entirety, with all the bad guys running around with machine guns etc, AND all of the bad guys having a habit of routinely brein be out to kill nearly everybody else (and not in the last place, police officers)!

  2. BUKELE in El Salvador, or Honduras has all the pinchis maras in prison kissing and making out while human rights organizations all over the world wrong their hands in angst about the maras rights, and BUKELE has never been a cop or trained by nobody's cops in any other country...

    1. You do know he cleaned up shop so his folks can control the drug market

    2. 7:48 SO WHAT!
      At least there will be new fresh less experienced murderers on the streets, easier to catch and send to the maras that will be waiting for them eagerly.
