The Lack Of Judicial Effectiveness...

...Is exactly what La Familia Michoacana is using to dig its way into and cement itself into the roots of Michoacan society. While it persues the production and delivery (and violence) of illegal drugs, LFM offers the poplace a sort of "Frontier Justice" that is quick, brutal, and effective. In this topsy turvy landscape we have civilians taking their grievances to the mob just like what Mario Puzo wrote about. But, that doesn't include areas outside of LFM influence, and Zihuatanejo is not LFM turf.

Mexico needs to reinvent itself both in law enforcement, and the judiciary. Many criminal cases end up with a defendant going to prison only to be released because of a later determination of wrongful due process. If other or new gangs adopt the process of LFM Mexico is going to face a lot tougher fight to rid the country of organized crime. We can only hope and pray.
