Frontier justice

All I can say is "Bravo!"

From Cubachi:
In the seafood restaurant of Lolo, a gang of kidnappers in possession of AK-47s approached the 17-year-old cashier and tried to kidnap the teenager. However, citizens had enough with the kidnappings, the murders, the threats, and the incompetence of the Mexican police. Instead, the town took to their own kind of legal justice.

The mob of residents, chased down the two teenage kidnappers, and lynched them in a local cotton field.

"Bravo!" indeed.

But there's this sober reminder at the end of the post:

"However, this situation makes me think of Bolton’s warning that Mexico may be heading to an anarchic state."

Thank you Obama and Calderon. Oh, yeah, and Bush, and Congress.

When those cotton balls get sodden
You can't pick very much cotton
In those old cotton fields back home

Going organic are they.

Mexico is a failure. Until its' citizens organize to fight back like this little town, then they will remain shackled. I don't know if it is possible, or not to late.
