    This is soo sad, but the truth is this will never stop until the US decides to intervene like they did in Colombia in the 90′s when Escobar was running the country. The only reason the US has yet to intervene is because all the guns supplied to cartels and paramilitars in that country come directly from the US. It is a sad reality but there is no other way to make this stop unless another country intervens. These families/Cartels are no longer killing rival cartels but anyone and everyone in that country. Life has ZERO value down there anymore. It’s a tragedy

    The reality is that’s what fuelling these killings and
    making billions for the Cartels is the U.S. and its addiction to drugs and
    money. None of this will stop, not even so called U.S. intervention, until the
    U.S. figures out a way to put a stop/end its addiction to drugs. Remember that
    all the drugs, prostitution (human traffickign) and so on are not being funded by Mexicans but by
    the trafficking to U.S.
