Vigilante groups take on Mexico cartels

Criminal gangs in Mexico are still carrying out mass kidnappings despite a promise by President Enrique Peña Nieto to protect the people.

In the Western state of Michoacan, towns continue to join popular vigilante groups to defend themselves from the brutal Knights Templar cartel.

More than 60 bodies have been recovered from clandestine graves in the area.

Authorities have said they will not allow people to take justice into their own hands, but as Al Jazeera’s Rachel Levin reports from Michoacan, the self-defence groups will not give up.

  • conan Smith says:

    The US government is trying to take its citizens guns also I guess they don’t want us to be able to protect ourselves either. They tell us all we have to do is call the police but by the time they get there someone will be dead and when they do show up, they may just shoot the wrong person.

  • IceCold11235 says:

    Power to them! This isn’t even vigilantism, this is survival. Completely justified. Cartels are making the lives of decent human beings impossible.

  • Leo Picollo says:

    At this point the government should make it legal to buy guns for the people for self defence , police cant do there job , military can,t do there job , then militias should form and defend the area period with government funding .

    Enough is definitely enough in this country also. Bravo to the people of Mexico.

  • Michael & Paulette says:

    Looks like those who grew up in the States, realize drug cartels don’t have to be tolerated. They are leading their fellow citizens in attacks to destroy the nation’s enemies. Good for them. We should all pray for their success and safety.

  • tardwhisperer 101 says:

    Viva Mexico!!

  • Skip Rocker says:

    You guys need to plot a raid on a cartel stronghold. You can secure arms and money for supplies and your community while you are taking care of your problem. Find the best target and get as many loyals as possible who won’t tip them off. God bless all free men in Mexico.

  • Schmuelsons Radang says:

    I support the citizens. They must wipe out all these cartel members from the land. The Mexican government is simply too weak to act and not very good at their tasks. A corrupt government is the root of all these weaknesses.

  • Sandra A says:

    Destroy all cartels and terrorists!!

    I agree with the people.

  • RON SCHUELER says:

    Mexico is a pit of violence. Government has not guts or will to help their people. America is getting no better thanks to the cartel and Illegals who smuggle drugs.

  • Iam Invisable says:

    I support their fight for their country. Maybe America can do something to aide the vigilantes and train the young immigrants to rage against cartels

  • SCIENCE says:

    now just build a parallel pure democratic government
    every family selects a representative from the family, this representative can be grouped with ten nearby representatives to select another higher representative, these higher rank representatives can still be grouped with ten nearby high rank representatives to select an higher one and so on, these can be done with a notebook putting names and signatures there, and these representatives can be replaced by anytime with updated signatures in case they aren’t doing their job, now after having this pure democracy you can collect taxes for greater investments/purposes, you can even unanimously agree to vote a political member selected by as you will get all the votes for that
    every decision can be proposed and made by vote by representatives in real time

  • Bill Rhoasts says:

    On the surface, this may seem like a good thing, but these armed citizens are up against a group of killers who have the funding to out number and out gun them. I wish them well. Still, there’s something about vigilante justice that bothers me. No formal chargers, no witnesses, no evidence needed. All that’s needed is an accusation and boom! You’re executed.

  • Szabi B says:

    The guy at the end with the magazine pouches on to hold his ak47 magazines, had a sweet looking knife. Also I would trust them over the police or government of Mexico. Because they are not in it for the money they are in it to make it safe for people and kids to be out and for businesses not to get extorted.

  • phil ceballos says:

    The people who are fleeing are the families of the cartel members 😎.

  • jacob me says:

    I don’t know who’s worse government or cartel when the government won’t allow citizens there natural right to defend themselves

  • Jenny Low says:

    Everywhere is the same, it always has to do with gov

  • A-DrewG says:

    Bless these men for stepping up for themselves, but they do need to watch out. This isn’t a new thing as many cartels and gangs form from these vigilante groups. If you want to ask why it is simple. Once a group starts to actively removing a cartel they need funding for weapon, gear, and ammo. What is one of the best ways to get money in their situation….. selling narcotics.

  • Yamete Sempai! says:

    In this century we have a right mind these governments should know that they are not helping their citizens but instead they are making it worst.

  • Fermin Valdivia says:

    Sometimes you need to pickup guns this is why the second amendment is very important

  • ecbenny J says:

    This is why the leftist, and bought and controlled Obrador, need to legalize guns ASAP! The Mexican government should begin distributing at least two free guns per family (one pistol and one rifle with 1000 rounds per firearm) to give them a head start since liberal politics destroyed the people of Mexico. The people need to start defending themselves. Allow them to arm themselves to the teeth and we’ll be seeing a different Mexico.

  • John Doe says:

    Allah will put these cartels in jehannem.
