According to the article, this is a story of a small town group overthrowing their local corrupt police force and taking over. Article has some photos of armed citizens restoring order to their community.

Thousands of armed vigilantes have taken over a town in Mexico and arrested police officers after their 'commander' was killed and dumped in the street.


The self described 'community police' and arrested 12 officers and the town's former director of public security, who they accuse of taking part in the killing of Guadalupe Quinones Carbajal, 28, on behalf of a local organised crime group.

The 1,500-strong force has also set up improvised checkpoints on the major road running through Tierra Colorado, which connects the capital Mexico City to Acapulco, a coastal city popular with tourists less than 40 miles away.
The vigilantes are part of regional umbrella group Union of Peoples and Organizations of Guerrero State.

The Union is made up of residents in Tierra Colorado, as well as neighbouring towns such as Ayutla de los Libres, Teconoapa and San Marcos.

The growing vigilante movement in southern and western Mexico has seen masked groups manning checkpoints and searching vehicles for weapons.

Maybe their brethren will see fit to head south to assist.

Far more likely many of those in "the south" will use the unrest as an excuse to join their brethren here in in "El Norte." I speak from experience.

Just had a business lunch with a man that lobbies Congress on behalf of the trucking industry. He said everyone on the Hill is in agreement that Texas will be a swing state in 2016. :mad:

Around 1900 Mexico suffered through a period of revolution..yall remember Pancho Villa. They lost 10 percent of their population in that period. That's a lot more than we lost in our revolution.

more power to them, that is if they will use this power to rid themselves of the drug cartel and not to take over the drug market but that is something yet to see
could be something good happening and yet could be terrible

Between the immigrants and defectors from CA, I believe it.
