..... 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 "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.
