Here is something you don't hear much of in the USA. The Mato Zetas on Blog de Narco. The Mato Zetas is a 'freedom fighting' vigilante group who have made it their mission to eliminate the Zetas cartel. The Mato Zetas are thought to receive their orders from the government. They are as ruthless as the cartels themselves; however they do not extort money from victims. They simply kill drug dealers, extortionist, criminals, kidnappers. Just recently 35 bodies were uncovered in Vera Cruz...these assisinations were performed at the hands of the 'good guys.' But the news is distorted in the USA and yes, it is all horrendous and unthinkable, however its not tragic in the eyes of all of Mexico.

Here is a nice link to executions, photos, and messages from the Mato Zetas.

So is that the direction we want to go....?
I would say probably not a good idea. My point is that in the USA we hear of these killings and assume it is dangerous for all - which is true of the actual cartels - but not of the Mato Zetas. Each death is targeted, no innocent bystanders and no mistaken identities occur. The Mato Zetas are viewed as heros, are respected and at the same time are also perceived as a paid government killing squad.

Its an interesting dichotomy.

Not necessarily but it may work in Mexico, our countries are TOO close geographically but way different culturally.

This is not what I want going on just south of here... sorry.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do it. Vigilantes are the wrong way. It never ends well for the "natives".

We need to rethink our drug laws, and crack down BIG TIME on ANY gang activity.

We say their culture is different there... well, that shit "migrates" across borders.

I don't know if something like this would work in the US but if the Mexicans are fine with it, so be it.

I understand what your saying but its really not our call if this is what the Mexicans want to do.

I get that part of story. I just look at what is going on down there as "drug related", but didnt know about the Mato Zetas. However, I know for a fact the Zeta's are NO good.

For Mexico, it is a lesser of two evils situation. I am certain Mexicans would rather all drugs, money laundering and arms dealers go away.

Have you looked at these guys? Serious mofos with bottled water. :)
