If the Mexicans trusted the Army, the troops could be much more effective. Apparently, the Mexican Army is suffering from a lack of intelligence information. Most of that has to come from the people. The Mexican Army, like the police, has no frame of reference for good public relations.

On the other hand, Juarez is under de facto martial law, since the police have been disarmed and are at the mercy of the sicarios. Martial law, by nature, is brutal. It's the price a country pays for letting crime and anarchy take over.
