This is why I say that if drugs are legalized the crimminals will amp up the violence against decent hard working honest people.
These guys are organized have weapons,and uncontested and they do what they want. It is getting worse.
I was talking to a poor man the other day in Santa Eulalia here in Chihuahua. He had a couple of beers and he said he is glad he is poor so that the crimminals will not come after him.
I know a man here in Delicious who is honest and hard working. He has a car lot. He has done OK. The federal police came in and took all his belongings and loaded them in trucks. They said we know you are a drug dealer and we have every right to take your things. They had masks on. They told him not to complain or it would create more problems. He complained anyway, and of course nothing happened.
Two months ago two suburbans showed up with about 18 men holding AK - 47's. They told him to give them the keys to two of his nicer trucks. He did as asked. They said if he reported them as stolen they would return and kill him and his employee's. He did not report them as he knew they would keep their word. So he lost two vehicles and the money and no way to claim them on his insurance.
The problem is you cannot win. Between the police and the crimminals it is hard to succeed, and it is getting worse as the crimminals buy off more politicians and police, achieve more weapons and power and freedom to do as they want.
Some people think that think things are getting better. They are getting worse.
