Yeah that's gonna end well once they act in the US like they act in Mexico uh? It's just a matter of time, especially with the economy going down the drain.

Department of Justice Says Mexican Cartels Operating in More Than 1,000 U.S. Cities



The DoJ report, the 2011 National Drug Threat Assessment, says that Mexican criminal organizations have set up shop in more than a thousand U.S. cities, a sharp rise from the 230 cities reported in the 2009 assessment. The new report also says that, "The threat posed by the trafficking and abuse of illicit drugs will not abate in the near term and may increase."


At least some people understand...

"Innocent civilians and hardworking law enforcement officers are dying every day because of our failed policies," said Nelson. "The fact that we keep ramping up the 'drug war' instead of changing course is unconscionable."

Hell yeah.

But that's what the government wants. Big big trouble so they can give more money to the police state and keep people afraid and distracted against the drug cartels so they don't come for them.

Just like in Mexico. People are too afraid, too poor, too busy thinking about the cartels to do anything about the corrupted Mexican government.


This is what you want happening in the US in the near future?

Woman decapitated in Mexico for web posting

Police found a woman's decapitated body in a Mexican border city on Saturday, alongside a handwritten sign saying she was killed in retaliation for her postings on a social networking site.

The gruesome killing may be the third so far this month in which people in Nuevo Laredo were killed by a drug cartel for what they said on the internet.


Bodies hanging from bridge in Mexico are warning to social media users

Social media users who denounce drug cartel activities along the Mexican border received a brutal warning this week: two mangled bodies hanging like cuts of meat from a pedestrian bridge.

A woman was hogtied and disemboweled, her intestines protruding from three deep cuts on her abdomen. Attackers left her topless, dangling by her feet and hands from a bridge in the border city of Nuevo Laredo. A bloodied man next to her was hanging by his hands, his right shoulder severed so deeply the bone was visible.

Signs left near the bodies declared the pair, both apparently in their early 20s, were killed for posting denouncements of drug cartel activities on a social network.

"This is going to happen to all of those posting funny things on the Internet," one sign said. "You better (expletive) pay attention. I'm about to get you."


Gunmen dump 35 bodies on busy street in Mexico

Masked gunmen blocked traffic on a busy avenue in a Gulf of Mexico coastal city Tuesday and dumped the bodies of 35 slaying victims as horrified motorists watched, authorities said.

Veracruz state Attorney General Reynaldo Escobar Perez said the bodies were left piled in two trucks and on the ground of an underpass near a shopping mall in the city of Boca del Rio.


Narco gangster reveals the underworld

Cartels have taken cruelty up a notch, says one drug trafficker: kidnapping bus passengers for gladiatorlike fights to the death

The elderly are killed. Young women are raped. And able-bodied men are given hammers, machetes and sticks and forced to fight to the death.

In one of the most chilling revelations yet about the violence in Mexico, a drug cartel-connected trafficker claims fellow gangsters have kidnapped highway bus passengers and forced them into gladiatorlike fights to groom fresh assassins.

If what he says is true, gangsters who make commonplace beheadings, hangings and quartering bodies have managed an even crueler twist to their barbarity.

Members of the Zetas cartel, he says, have pushed passengers into an ancient Rome-like blood sport with a modern Mexico twist that they call, "Who is going to be the next hit man?"

"They cut guys to pieces," he said.

The victims are likely among the hundreds of people found in mass graves in recent months, he said.

Many are believed to have been dragged off buses traveling through Mexico, but little has been said about the circumstances of their deaths.

The trafficker said those who survive are taken captive and eventually given suicide missions, such as riding into a town controlled by rivals and shooting up the place.

The trafficker said he did not see the clashes, but his fellow criminals have boasted to him of their exploits.


40 000+ dead people from the cartels in the last 5 years. If it comes to the US in the form it is in Mexico, I expect higher death tolls... more people and more weapons involved.

Mexicans are nothing but trouble for america. And yet obama announced last month that he won't enforce the laws against illegals living here!!! 30 million illegals and prolly 25 million are mexicans.

Mexico is the biggest enemy we have and our president is on their side!!!

Makes me wonder.

Where do "people" get extra money for drug use ?

Or is it all theft based.

What impact is this on the economy in general ?

"Legalization" would only lower the price.....
not good for the cartel mafias profits.

Who's buying all this stuff anyway ?

Yea true but they are getting as far up as Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, and we both know how bad those cities can get.

A buddy of mine lives not too far from a bad neighborhood in Toronto and there is always problems with gangs there.

Depends on the drug. The Green-leaf is smoked by everyone from Judges, lawyers, Doctors and small business owners to factory workers etc. The harder drugs tend to be done by the impoverished(most become poor/homeless due to their habit) or overly wealthy.

You see they have to move slowly because a lot of peoples jobs depend on the war on drugs. If they have a drop of common sense then they would know they would have to slowly wind down the war on drugs while training personnel for other things. Like addiction counseling, and retooling the police/prison guard force for dealing with mental issue's and community wellness(war on mental illness) type stuffs.

Also by slowly winding it down it would give industry a chance to retool to incorporate the "green menace" into their business plan so they don't get nuked by start ups(at this point big business knows which way the winds are blowing and will have no choice but to retool. Once the are ready changes will happen rapidly).
