Sad story about the state of part of Mexico

I had the same question.

I don't even think the man's woes were the point of the article. I think the rub against AMLO was the point of the article. Just because he isn't continuing Calderón's proxy war for the USA, he is a target by folks who prosper from wars, chaos and corruption.

But yeah, if armed men show up at your door because you bought a ranch in the boonies and they want to steal your land, the cops are NOT coming if you can even get them to answer the phone, which they won't even do here anymore.

Oh, and yes, our system of courts and justice is severely broken. There's some FREE advice for you if you weren't already aware, which anyone who picks up a newspaper in any part of Mexico should be able to discern. Unless you don't bother to learn the language and only deal with folks who seek to prosper from you.

I'm not understanding where the disconnect is with some of you over this. The man appears not to have done his homework before sinking a lot of money into risky if not odd ventures in Mexico. He was SURPRISED the police didn't show up with sirens blaring and lights flashing to arrest the bad guys. Hell, we didn't even expect that from our cops in Florida back when I lived there.
