Contra Muro


  1. How about the skeletons that were found in queretaro headed to South Carolina from Michoacán??

    1. How you know your a fed right or a confidential informant

      I can’t stand people who write dumbass shit

  2. Ironic, as I was just texting with Sol saying this was the avocado farming community that I was just invited to come visit.
    A friend of mine, her Grandfather owns an avocado farm there (she currently lives in USA). Ironically and with a straight face she said "oh no, no cartels there, no bribes or extortion for paid for produce to move etc"
    She is well aware of my fascination with the state of Michoacan but I couldn't burst her bubble of the reality of this town and probably the reality of her family ties. Once again, who am I to judge?
    I have read before that frequently for many people in Mexico or from Mexico in these 'hot bed' communities you almost have to succumb to denial just because facing the truth would be too painful or would make it impossible to spend time with your family in this area, let alone, in this case face your father and grandfather for having to participate in criminal activities to merely survive or other motivations.

    1. Well, in Mexico you have no choice but to work with them. Specially with El abuelo and Los viagras. Many avocado growers tried doing everything on their own but got killed and their fields stolen.
      Who can you ask for help?
      Even the autodefenzas turned out to be working for cartels at the end because of pressurefrom government that helped out the cartels.

  3. Michoacan been quiet for a while
