Juarez


this has to do with the current cartel situations in our beloved towns in Baja Sur now..........just trying to remember details..............
How did Juarez turn itself around? Did the people convince the gangs that they were ruining things? Was it cartel investment that actually helped?

did read "This Love is not for Cowards" but it has been too long.

The link below helps tell the story, bottom line is the thin veneer in place now can be changed in a heartbeat with the wrong kinda of encounter or being in a bad proximity situation, Nothings changed.

BTW, I will NOT be taking my new Sinaloa blue truck thru Jaurez any time soon.
Mas y menos the reason I wore black clothes when I worked service calls around Chrenshaw Blvd. in SoCal. Colors count in the hood

Was perhaps the massive military presence?
Or perhaps one gang won and the other was decimated (one year decimated at rate of 4500 murders per year).
Hard to tell what solved the problem,,,....
Or if it was solved,... perhaps the problem was never solved, and is just is just in remission...
Not sure anything is ever solved when the rest of the country is still in turmoil of disputes among gangs of thugs

I wish y’all would not use the word “cartel.” Call them what they are: gangs, thugs.
