NYTIMES: An outbreak of violence in rural southwestern Mexico has led civilians in a string of communities to take up arms and police their own communities, shining a light on the lack of state security as a new administration prepares to take on the country’s violence.
The latest eruption of citizen policing began about three weeks ago in the small, mountainous town of Ayutla de los Libres, in Guerrero State, when residents picked up rifles and machetes and arrested at least three dozen people they said the authorities had failed to apprehend.
Since then, the practice has spread to other areas of the state, with movement leaders and local human rights officials saying more than a hundred small communities are now patrolling themselves.
Last week, local news media reported that indigenous communities in Jalisco State were also planning their own citizen police forces.THIS IS NOT VIGILANTISM; THIS IS SELF-DEFENSE.
AFTER THEY KILL THE BAD DRUGGIES THEY SHOULD GO AFTER THE BAD POLITICIANS!
