Perhaps things are occurring in steps.
These judges aren't killing the people in broad day light are they? Cause the drug cartels actually do.
I think stopping the people literally killing the populace is priority number one. Once the citizens are safe we can move on from there.
Would it make more sense to let the criminals killing people keep doing so while focusing on trying to root out who's in who's pocket?
Perhaps part of going after the cartels first is to try and get info from these criminals of who's on the take in exchange for leniency. You know, so he doesn't have to arbitrarily kill and imprison police, judges, and politicians not on the take.
There might be reasons things are going in the order they are.
