We could use some of this here. Let's start with Detroit.

"Dressed in hand-me-down tracksuit bottoms and sandals, the 35-year-old Garibo and some like-minded locals accompanying him say they are fed up with the robberies, extortions, rapes and murders that Mexico’s drugs gangs have inflicted on the population."

“We are here to restore law and order,” he said, pointing to a hapless-looking troupe of about 30 men between the ages of 15 and 70 and armed with machetes,.22 caliber rifles, automatic shotguns and .380 pistols.“Organized crime has gone beyond the state’s ability to keep the peace, so we are doing it ourselves.”

All over Guerrero state, as well as in other parts of Mexico, self-defense or vigilante groups are springing up in response to the unanswered threat of criminal gangs.
