The rural population is fed up with the govt's inability to protect them from the violence of the drug cartels, so they have started their own self-defense patrols. The victims finally got fed up, and have taken matters into their own hands.

The govt, so far, is pretty much leaving them alone to defend themselves ... with their machetes, single-shot, bolt action rifles, and shotguns. Wonder what they would have to say about gun control laws?
