Good Lord, did they actually use real names?!?! I sincerely do NOT wish to see any follow-ups to this, if that's the case.

I always thought that, if Marvel was going to make a Punisher reboot, instead of Frank Castle it has to be Francisco Castillo.

Don't worry, with the bullshiat Marvel's been pulling lately, you may just get your wish. Diversity!

Good on him and good on the whole militia thing.  If we had those kinds of problems here, you'd see a lot fewer angry people wanting to take guns away.

That said, I'm also glad to see that the Mexican authorities are trying to form up those militia into official parts of the system and not just vigilantes anymore.

If the cartel catches these guys they'll get their heads chopped off then get taken away to be tortured or even worse, sent to Detroit.

I remember the good ole days of the internet,  '94. '95, when snuff films were a myth. Rumor, at best. Flash forward 20 years, and I've seen hundred of people beheaded, shot in the head, dismembered, and otherwise ended. Oh, internet.

So he fled to Mexico because of his involvement in drug trafficking was going to get him tossed in the clink and deported.

I guess he had a change of heart about the business.

That Guy What Stole the Bacon: Good Lord, did they actually use real names?!?! I sincerely do NOT wish to see any follow-ups to this, if that's the case.


Hm...

Caught up in a drug trafficking case in Los Angeles, he fled the U.S. and returned to Mexico, leaving his wife and four kids back in California.

And just like that, the inevitable follow-up is less depressing.  Dude's, at best, an atone for contributing to the problem in the first place, and abandoned his family primarily out of personal interest in avoiding the consequences of his actions.

Not maybe the most sympathetic example they could have picked, there.  Even now he's more running a smaller-time rival gang than playing folk hero.

Running a rival gang picking lemons? Yeah.

He got caught up in bad stuff, fighting is his way of trying to make up for his mistake. He is fighting a group that had no trouble shooting a baby point blank range to make a point about their ruthlessness.

Turn off the cynicism and give the guy a little credit.

Here is what happens in situations like this.

1.The militia start whacking drug guys and taking their dope and money.
2. Drug gangs pay militia to hit other rival gangs.
3. Militia likes the easy money, and it is easy to recruit foot soldiers when patriotism is in place.
4. Militia becomes another cartel.

Sounds less like he's trying to change, and more like he's trying to move up in life. Take down a cartel to put his own in place. The only potential hero here is the wife he left behind to raise 4 kids in a country where they're not particularly welcome. I want to hear her side.

rga184: Running a rival gang picking lemons? Yeah.


And making hits on rival cartels to seize their assets, primarily for the purpose of expanding the 'militia's power-base?

Yeah, that's totally legitimate and not suspicious at all in any way.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go hang out in central park with all the nice young men with the red bandanas who run an organization that donates shoes to middle-schoolers.  I'm sure that it will be a great time with lots of sharing of spiritual goodwill, because of how every organization must be judged solely by a single innocuous activity that is necessarily completely legitimate and not at all an obvious cover operation.

You guys might want to do a little research on this. I can understand the cynicism, but it doesn't seem that actual events justify it.

They are getting heavier weapons and armored cars, which many people believe are being financed by the Nueva Generación cartel, which happens to operate in the area.
