Drug Cartels in Mexico force gladiator battles for amusement

This is nuts. What to do? Invade Mexico? Legalize drugs?


"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. "

Yikes. I feel sorry for those people in that country who are just trying to survive. If true, Mexico has no real credibility as to how they control their country. Then again, I've never really thought of them as a credible country anyway.

That's terrible.

The government never really gave a rats @ss and they still dont. I know they spend money and put out a bunch of anti-cartel messages but there's a difference in a real crackdown and just puttin your pretty face and your open checkbook on tv. I guess by now it's too late to fix it even with said "crackdown" which is yeah, really saddening and sickening :(
