  1. Mexico will be a free for all

  2. Killing anyone getting closer than 6 feet is one way to pratice social distancing.

  3. >President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said on Friday that a drop in violence had been expected towards the end of March when coronavirus cases had started increasing in Mexico, “but it didn’t turn out like that.”

    >López Obrador came to power promising to solve Mexico’s security woes by tacking what he considered the root causes of crime: poverty and corruption. But the strategy has so far failed to rein in the violence.

    Ah, ‘hugs, not bullets’ policy wherein he basically lets the cartels do whatever they want while virtue signaling that only solving poverty/corruption can fix the problem.

    Boy, nothing quite like getting intimate with the mother of one of Mexico’s most famous criminals (and promising her to help her see her degenerate son) to prove you’re not corrupt. I suppose he just wanted to be thanked properly after releasing her grandson (Ovidio).

  4. i wonder if mexico is confirming covid deaths as homocides /tinfoilhat

  5. With the shakiest vehicles, the wheels come off the fastest.

  6. So much for their plan to ignore it

  7. Mexico – land of the I don’t know what

  8. The president was seen last week with a gathering of el chapos lawyer, his mother and the frontline members of “el cartel de sinaloa”. It’s giving the country to the cartel with it’s failed security policy.
    So please hurry up and label these guys as terrorist so we can move on with pur lives.

  9. What a shit place to live

  10. Maybe they had another plan to eliminate the problem at the source.
