Local militias battle drug cartel
“Neighborhood watch” on steroids
It’s happening in Mexico right now
These are some brave people…
In the Mexican state of Michoacan in Mexico local people are tired of the extortion, kidnappings and murders by a powerful drug cartel with the odd name The Knights Templar.
After being left to the wolves by the government they’re organizing their own armed militias and fighting back.
This report is a few months old. In the most recent reports on this ongoing war, the federal troops have apparently decided to sit back and let the local people and cartel fight it out.
