  1. Dam those Black Mamba trucks look really nice. Loooks like a very well design. Reminds me of how when USA went to Iraq. And had to get the Hummers built differently. With the armor plating for all the IEDS. But made the Hummers look amazing. Now it has become a world trend. Although started by the Great US of A.

    3. Is it true that they werent armored at all from the beginning? Heard many stories about.

  2. No impunity. Now that they have been convicted and sentenced, the Mexican press has no excuse for continuing to hide their full names.

  3. These guys got the book thrown at them because they didn't have bribe money to have their cases dismissed But all the clowns with bribe money walk away or don't get extradited where they shout be and the victims and all they come know the risks and dangers anyway.
