As someone who lives in a Mexican community, I get first hand information of the slaughter going on just south of the border. Many of my homies have family members who have been affected one way or another by the war. One of them had and uncle who was shot in the neck because he was in line at a street vendor. They were trying to hit some other guy but he got caught in the crossfire. It reminds me so much of my motherland Brazil. Where wars on the street in the favelas claim untold amounts of people. Gunfire is so common you just drowned it out instead of covering. I can just imagine how people in Mexico must be feeling.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the Mexican people having to live thourgh this bullshit. I know how it feels to be under siege. I hope a resolution to this conflict comes quick.
Now, what can be done to stop the Cartel power in Mexico? Should we legalize drugs to stop the black market? Should we put stronger restrictions on guns in Texas where they get their weapons from?
