As long as they stay busy down there they won’t be as likely to come here.

"We have Nicaragua, soon we will have El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Mexico. One day, tomorrow or five years or fifteen years from now, we're going to take 5 to 10 million Mexicans and they are going into Dallas, into El Paso, into Houston, into New Mexico, into San Diego, and each one will have embedded in his mind the idea of killing ten Americans."

--Thomas Borge, Nicaragua Interior Minister, as quoted in the Washington Times, March 27, 1985

“The force’s spokesman, Bruno Placido Valerio, said: ‘We have besieged the municipality, because here criminals operate with impunity in broad daylight, in view of municipal authorities.”

This sounds just like our White House and Congress...!

When government fails to protect the people, they will sometimes rise up and defend themselves. Good for these people. It’s obvious the Mexican authorities won’t do their job.

I’ve been wondering that myself, especially since we see news daily of mobs attacking innocent people and the authorities looking the other way. I hope that enough people in this country have retained the courage to protect themselves and their families, unlike what seems to have happened in Europe. Euroweenies, is a fitting term.

I think 2 million patriots marching on DC would scare the crap out of them. If you recall, the media lied, distorted and completely ignored the 500,000 who came to the 2010 TEA Party rally with Sarah and Glenn Beck...

Looks like it might be happening here! Check out the post about a place in AZ where someone is going to give out free shotguns to anyone who can pass a background check. They are doing this because the police are not protecting the people. Boo yah!

I’d say good for them. But in Mexico, it’s seldom clear that there’s a right side and a wrong side. Revolutions against dictators and thugs usually turn out badly.

The militia shot some tourists for not stopping at a roadblock. Not good.

Wow. Sounds like a workable plan for certain leftie cesspools in the US. Chicago, Detroit, and parts of New York, perhaps? If the local police are corrupt and won’t provide protection, it’s up to the citizens to step up and do so.

These are real men. America was made of such men.

Vigilantism was given a bad rap by the crooks in the Establishment to protect themselves from righteous citizens.

In a sense it is going on in Detroit but its not organized. The elderly are taking a hell of a toll on the thug population.

The justifiable homicide rate in Detroit is an astounding 2200% higher than the national average. Part of the problem is the manipulation of statistics. The government loves to count those justifiable homicides (defensive) as murder without a distinction. Just guessing from watching the news I’d say its about 5 defensive shootings per week in Detroit.

Please go to the link and read the entire article. There are a good many pictures also. These people look like the real thing. These are the ‘people’ that leftists endlessly emote over but never do anything substantive for. They live in one of the poorest parts of Mexico with a long history of rebellion and vigilantism. The vigilante movement is growing in the mountainous central west part of Mexico as the criminality from the drug regimes have begun to spill over into areas where there is little narcotics action. What is now emerging is generalized banditry like something out of a Hollywood film like the ‘Magnificent Seven’.
Armed gangs now infest areas extracting protection moneys from farmers and small merchants, establishing shake down road blocks on highways and kidnapping anyone slightly prosperous for ransom. On top of this theft of community property such as valuable timber assets is becoming common. Gangs show up with trucks and power saws and a lot of weapons and simply harvest timber. The trend in self defense is likely to grow and is one more symptom of how deeply enmeshed in a destructive cycle of violence, chaos, and corruption our southern neighbor is. In the past this trend ends in general collapse of the central government, warlordism and generalized armed chaos featuring hosts of private semi-bandit armies. Bad times seem to be coming south of the border.
