..... I have family over there especially in this little town. And as of now it's controlled by what they call 'Los Zetas' and man they are the worst. Once zetas are in your area it's the plague, my family says that the town they're is in their control. And when I say control I mean, they find out what stores make money, or what family has money and how they make it or where they get it. And then they charge rent (Like the OP said; they go to people's homes/stores and make people give them 'rent' for living in their own home (or what they sell they can only sell that, they can't sell anything else) if they don't; they kidnap/kill them. This is so very true).
They will get you, and torture you (someone that owed them (drug-dealers) money, kidnapped the man and put him in a those big metal bins with hot boiling oil and fried him alive basically) and if you're lucky they kill you quickly.
And on a note, there are some zetas already on this side of the border, especially in one of Texas' big cities, and that is bad news.
The very same thing happens in the United States of America today, in most major cities!

"My friend's aunt had her house in Nuevo Laredo broken into at 2am last week, guns drawn, demanding $250 dollars for "rent" or she'd get shot. She didn't have the cash and the people who broke in told her if she didn't have it by the next day, to expect her and her kids shot. She had to sell her tv and dining set to get the cash. The guys who broke in were no more than 16-17, fully-automatic weapons, and they were going house to house to either get the money or make threats."
I am sorry, but I very much doubt this piece of anecdotal evidence. Would you put up with this if you lived on this street? You are telling me they walked down the block going house to house at 2am and no one bothered to call the police or shoot them instead? They all just handed over $250?
Investigators made their way to site using ATVs, chainsaws and machetes. Campgrounds were found nearby, indicating people were staying there, 10TV's Andy Hirsch reported.
"They have food there, they have water, they have fertilizer, they toothpaste. They are living out of these tents," said Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz.
More than 6,000 marijuana plants were seized.
Deputies said the operation was sophisticated, and may be connected with a Mexican drug cartel, Hirsch reported.
DUBLIN, Ohio — Residents in a neighborhood of million-dollar homes expressed surprise Wednesday after learning that a major pot-growing operation may have been operating out of a nearby house.
The owners of a home on Tartan Fields Drive grew concerned about their property after they could not get in touch with the people renting their home, CrimeTracker 10's Angela An reported.
The owners arrived in Dublin on Sunday for a surprise inspection and called authorities after discovering more than 600 marijuana plants and thousands of dollars in cash in their home. Sheriff's deputies arrived moments later.

The "Zeta's" are a product of the Texas prison system and are very real. They are hired by and intimately tied to the northern Mexico drug cartels; doing work for them on both sides of the border.
Based on your lack of knowledge of these simple facts and your inability to answer previous posts questions, your credability is less then zero...IMO.
