Mexican Citizens Fight Back in Firefight With Narcoterrorists
January 13, 2014 12:00pm PST
One has to wonder why it’s taken so long to get to this point, but in at least one Mexican town, local citizens have gotten upset enough at the carnage to fight back against the drug cartels.
Calling itself a “Self-Defense Council,” over a hundred citizens toting automatic weapons engaged in a firefight with members of the Knights Templar drug cartel in the western Mexican state of Michoacan.
The vigilantes come to town to face down the drug cartels.
These self-defense groups have been springing up all over Mexico in the last few months as the violence perpetrated by drug gangs has continued to infest the country.
But not everyone in Michoacan was happy to see the vigilante group coming into their city. Some say that the vigilantes are just funded by a rival drug gang and aren’t really about ridding the countryside of cartels at all.
However, one has to realize that many of the citizens of Michoacan who might stand against the vigilantes are also people sold out to the drug gangs themselves. After all, the drug gangs are powerful, have lots of money, and are vicious to their enemies, so it isn’t a surprise that some residents might have a hard time publicly supporting vigilante groups. It is a tangled web, indeed.
Still, the AP did report that the vigilantes were welcomed by the towns folk when they first arrived.
Regardless, federal and local forces have not yet spoken against the various vigilante groups forming in Mexico and in some cases have even worked in tandem with them to face down drug cartels.
There have been some reports that vigilante groups have been infiltrated by drug cartels who have used vigilante activities to screen illegal activity, but since these groups are disparate and unofficial, it would seem this is bound to happen.
Regardless, the firefight in lasted throughout the day on January 12.
