thoughts on drug war?

Disgusting. I'd hate to have to be the Mexican government or citizens living in these areas. They literally are fighting a "war."

Anyone can say what they will about the justification of a "drug war"; these are some bad dudes. I wouldn't want them around.

I don't know what's more shocking, the killings themselves or the fact that you couldn't find a more reliable source of news than Wired or the Daily Mail.

I really wish I hadn't clicked on it.

It's completely fucked down there. If I remember, this happens mostly near the border though.

yea, whats sad is that this is absolutely nothing, considering they find whole cargo crates filled with assorted dismembered limbs. I knew a guy who worked for the DEA who found a cargo crate with body parts perfectly stacked on top of each other all organizes with legs and abdomens and hands. They said there was possibly 200 dead. There really another kind those cartels.

Saying that, I still think it's ballsy as hell of the Mexican Gov't to go after the cartels. Shitstorm isn't even the right word for it...

Here's a great source for what's happening down in mexico.

Be warned, some of the images they show in the articles are very graphic.

They posted about the chainsaw beheadings a few months back.

Shitstorm might be to light. One of those articles said that since they started going after the Cartel 5 years ago there have been 50,000 deaths associated with Cartel activity.

If monopolies were illegal then I would be able to choose more cable providers. Anyway, from what I hear, they're planning on legalizing drugs so they can stop the cartels.

I've removed a couple of the links in this thread. Discussion of the news story seems like a fair topic, but linking to places which have pictures of decapitated heads does rather conflict with our rules about macabre content.

How is it old news? The cartel war is going on RIGHT NOW, yes it started getting really bad in 2006, but still, this is probably more important than most issues being brought up on the news right now.

@AnxiousTube Hey genius legalizing drugs will not eliminate the drug trade. The cartels would just undercut the prices set by the regulating body. Addicts will buy the less expensive, untaxed, and more potent drugs.

As someone who lives about six hours away from where all this shit is happening...and seeing it start to trickle into my hometown (especially with the cartel violence that is directed at Sureno and Norteno familia in the area), it's a scary fucking thing. At the same time, it's solely because the U.S. won't just legalize it all.

Seriously, what the hell harm comes from legalizing the possession and distribution of narcotics? Portugal did it, and they saw a DECREASE in the amount of hard drugs used. It would stop the war at the border, it would stop the incarceration of so many people that don't need to be in prison in the first place, and it would lead towards the cartels realizing that they don't need to be hostile about this shit. If anything, it would mean they were a LEGIT BUSINESS!

Nonetheless, the U.S. would rather continue allowing this shit to happen at our borders, and it's a sad fucking thing.

Regulating body? No one is talking about retailing narcotics at a fucking store when they say "legalize it all". They are saying that distribution and possession wouldn't be illegal.

Even then, if it DID become a retailed item, then it would still eliminate the "drug trade". What's more profitable to the owner of a poppy field: running a legit business and creating jobs in their community while being rich and powerful, or murdering people and trying to hide your poppy field while employees work for jack shit? The first, obviously. It would open up trade. It would mean that you are a LEGIT BUSINESS.

i knew a guy who almost got his head cut off from the cartel. i don't know the whole story just he almost happened.

this isn't new. they have been doing that for a long time. if the us helped out with killing of them, or making drugs legal then mexico wouldn't have to suffer from the cartels.

@Jumanji I'm sorry I didn't realize it was the 1930's again. You honestly cannot compare the illegal drug trade with prohibition. I guess in your mind all the drug cartels throughout Mexico, South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, etc. would just pack up shop, cease operation, and say "it was fun while it lasted". The drug trade runs a little deeper then Mobsters and the "beer baron" supplying alcohol during prohibition but I don't expect you to see that. Go ahead, stand tall on your soapbox and proclaim the failures of the war on drugs. It does nothing but fall on deaf ears and is a total waste of time. Drugs (with maybe the exception of marijuana, which wouldn't be anytime soon) will never be legalized.

Not according to Wikipedia. Drugs are still illegal, they just use drug rehabilitation and community service instead of prison.

I wish governments would just make pot legal, regulated and taxed. Alcohol is basically a drug, one which was banned during prohibition years, which lead to widespread organized crime. Now the same is happening with drugs, and it won't be over until a similar action is taken. I would much rather live next door to a pothead than an alcoholic, they tend to be mellow and silly rather than loud, annoying and potentially violent.

This has been going on for like years. I live like 5 minutes from the border and know plenty of people who have lost family members for just crossing the border. Hell, even one of my friends got her car stolen with in 2 minutes of entering mexico from a truck full of guys with assault rifles.

Seen stuff like people getting their face stitched to a soccer ball and left on a playground, etc. It's one of the reasons a bunch of people here were completely freaked about Call of Juarez: The Cartel. When most of the people in this city have lost people to the drug cartel in juarez or they themselves had to deal with regular shootings and murders they tend to have a negative idea on games named as such.

Late to the party with this though.

I'm sorry. I should've specified "decriminalization" rather than "legalize".

It doesn't mean I support legalization any less, though. My brother got a year and a half of probation for having a quarter of a joint on him, and he's not a goddamn threat to anyone. I've got a lot of friends that are potheads and dope fiends, and while I don't agree with their use of drugs, it doesn't mean they aren't productive members of society. They just also happen to like getting high.

I don't know. I think everyone should have the right to do drugs if they want to without any type of criminal repercussions unless those drugs are infringing on the rights of someone else or they harm someone under the influence of those drugs.

Sure, there is a sticky slope to deal with in that. What about parents who will do drugs rather than taking care of their kids? What about people that will abuse drugs and lead to their own death? What about this and that? Well, here's the question you have to ask yourself: is illegality stopping that from happening right now? No. Therefore, what are we wasting all this money on?

Moreover, I thoroughly agree in more rehabilitation and therapy options than incarceration, jail time, and fines. I've seen the improvements that "drug court" (essentially the same thing as what Portugal does - rehab and therapy) has done for my brother. It's incredible. It's a policy we need more of in the U.S.

Because that was a really messed up video.

That being said i didn't look away but i was not happy at all during the process, certainly worse then that other video from Russia that surfaced a couple years ago.

Seeing this thread in passing, with all the links to said websites removed, as per the criteria of what's allowed and what isn't on these boards, I, like an idiot, sought the video out by way of the inescapable urge of morbid curisity. Watching through the corner of my eyeball, I'm glad I shut the page down, 4-5 second after things get going. What I saw, I wish I could unsee.
