      Fuck you and your hate loser

  3. To be honest, I expected a lot more violence. But things seem to be mostly peaceful. There’s thousands of voting stations all over the country for people to go to vote and only like two or three have actually experienced some sort of violence. The lead up to Election Day though was pretty bloody.

  4. Them Jaliscos gotta mess of them poor candidates.

  5. Se lo chingo el chito cano de las 4 segun mis fuentes de information en morelia

  6. Election Day in Mexico is almost over and it’s honestly a lot more peaceful than I expected it to be. The months leading up to Election Day were more violent than the Election Day itself.

  7. Sucks that the two guys who fired shots and stole the ballot boxes survived the car accident. The world would have been a better place without them.

  8. RIP to the candidate who was killed.

  9. Why were the criminals who shot the innocent woman and who stole the ballot boxes taken into custody ? Should’ve just shot them and saved taxpayers money.

  10. He would not work with the cartel if elected, so like always it's Plata o plumo.

    1. They kill them if they do they kill them if they don't

    2. No, he was the other cartels candidate.

  11. Ooh pri and pan alliance is real but they cant stop the movement 🤘

  12. Plata or plumo

  13. I think mayors are the #1 targeted public officials by the cartels.
