In Mexico, the citizens had had enough. Doctors, farmers, ranchers and even priests took up arms against the Knights Templar. The government couldn’t help them. Pervasive corruption ensured that not only were the authorities cooperating with the cartel, but that attempts to report these crimes often resulted in retaliation after the complicit authorities reported those who complained to the armed gangs.
The people took the law into their own hands. Some will say they became a vigilante force, but they merely did what their government would not or could not do – they took responsibility for their own safety, their lives, their property and their loved ones.
And their lives are more important than any “laws.”
FK – And more important and valuable than those hired public SERVANTS who enforce those evil laws one might add.
