Of course they give up without a fight. They'll buy off the prison guards and will break out of prison in no time. Mexican has no death penalty, so no matter how many people these guys have killed... it remains a prison sentence with the possibility of break out at any given point. Give it a rest-- the only way to cut these guys at the knees is to legalize drugs. That would cut off their source of funding. No funding-- No gang. It's idiotic to continue fighting a "war" that has no end in sight. We could put the money to much better use. Like education.

Interesting though, how for so many months and years, they couldn't catch these guys. They were elusive, and many people have been killed by their gangs.
Now this is the second one in two months they've 'caught'.

Makes me wonder.
