Good for them (seriously).

But part of me wishes that some kind of Civ 5 alternate universe Aztec marines had done the job. Give the farker what he really deserves (not sure how the Aztecs treated criminals, though they probably weren't sacrificed-you don't give shiat to the gods, right?-still, I'm sure they did something pretty brutal).

This is pretty huge. Los Zetas are the most powerful of the Cartels - in origin it was a group of Mexican Army special forces who went rouge. They are very sophisticated - they have their own Intelligence element and have built their own encrypted communications network, staffed with kidnapped engineers and programmers. There is going to a bloodbath over this damn soon.

I hope they announce where they a keeping him and then lay an ambush with snipers.  These guys always come back for their men, even if they are dead.   There is no way they are going to let this go.  Lure them in and take them out.

Quick!  Send a Predator drone in to blow the shiatcock up before someone bribes the guards!!

If this is going to be anything like the billion or so times we've taken out the first or second in command of the Taliban, then I don't care.

Used to work in Nuevo Laredo, the Z-Boys are not to be trifled with. Additionally, most of the people in Mexico prefer the Cartels over the 12 families that hoard 90% of the wealth or their bought and paid for Government.

Please...you're being sarcastic, right?

You understand the vastly greater market that exists for drugs, and the vastly easier time smugglers have moving them compared to people, right?
 
2013-07-15 09:35:42 PM  
Can't we just regulate all drugs through some sort of graduated licensing program and end all this?
 
2013-07-15 09:35:55 PM  
Wont this just increase violence due to retaliations and a new power vacuum?
 
2013-07-15 09:36:43 PM  
Good. Honestly, I know most people can't be trusted with such power, but Mexico is a good candidate for a temporary (I know, ha-ha) authoritarian dictatorship. Normally I'm all for will of the people but that place has become such a crime infested shiat hold that they need to go one step below "nuke it from orbit" and set the score straight.

Organized crime will always exist on crime. They wont stop committing crimes just because weed is legal. What do you think they will do?

One technique favoured by Trevino Morales was the "guiso", or stew, which saw enemies placed in 55-gallon drums and burned alive.

Holy shiat.

There will be a lot less profit in crime and crimes that are profitable will not be as easy, hence less crime.

I would love that, too.

But Nevada has it legalized and still the illegal ones are more popular.

Where ever there are laws you will find those who will profit off of breaking them. You know this. It happens in the Corporate world all the time.
 
2013-07-15 09:42:46 PM  
What's the best guess on when corrupt police / guards / judges "accidentally" allow his men to stage the greatest jailbreak of all time?

Of course, it could be the bad flip side of that: Police / guards / judges find their families kidnapped and threatened unless the man is released.

There's a huge monetary benefit for the smuggler to import drugs.  The benefit in smuggling people -- as slaves -- isn't nearly as large.

I'd argue that the taxes are too high, making it much more expensive then illegal prostitution. While I don't have the stats I'd also imagine there is a lot less illegal prostitution there because of the legal prostitution. One cannot expect it to completely go away, but can greatly minimise it. Once there is a PRACTICAL legal alternative, there also has to be stepped enforcement against illegal prostitution.

I'm sure drugs being illegal has a lot to do with the prevalence of illegal prostitution. Both in the girls needing money, and in drug testing of sex workers.

I live in Laredo, and got relatives across -- the next few days are gonna be interesting, that's fer sure.

Not sure about the people preferring the cartels though -- in the past, I could cross to nuevo laredo without any issues... but ever since Felipe Calderon riled everyone up... it's just changed big time. I even got chased by two cars that were trying to take my truck away (managed to drive away but they chased me all the way to bridge #2)

And the houses of my relatives appear mini forts -- with more spikes than a goth convetion.

How about illegal arms?

How about child porn?

How about non-tax-stamped tobacco?

They are easy to import and there is a rather good market for all three of them.

How about piracy?

How about fraud?

How about illegal trade of exotic animals?

How about counterfeiting?

These people wont start obeying the law if you legalize drugs because they have a shiatload of markets to go into

The problem with your logic is that organized crime already deals with that. The mob will be as big as the market supports. Getting Reid's of the illegal drug trade reduces the size of the market.

Or, the more fun scenario of there now begin a power vacum in the organization. Once that will result in split factions fighting for control. This is who police tend to leave one street gang alone: Let one of them have all the power in the neighbourhood, and there will be no violence between gangs.
