Yep this is exactly why Mexico is a failed state, escaping from a maximum security prison? This shit doesn't even happen in places like Cambodia. Many people even in developed countries look up to these drug lords as if they are some sort of hero, for me they are no different than terrorists. When I went to Medellin I did no visit Escobars grave for this very reason, If I had I'd only go to take a piss. They help bunch of poor people as a part of PR, but behind closed doors they kill people just to send a message, just for a fucking message. How cruel is that?
Now If I was a dictator of Mexico I'd send a informal message to those guards in the prison that in the event Chapo escapes, everyone will have a bullet in their head, lets see him escape now.
This is why countries like Mexico do not deserve democracy! If Mexico wasn't divided into states and there was a central government with a decent authoritarian leader, the gangs would be tackled way more efficiently.
Please tell me more about how "a central government with a decent authoritarian leader" can keep under its control the 13th largest country and 10th most populated which neighbors the largest drug consumer country in the world.
How come there are no cartels in China running around and challenging the authority of the government? The most populated country on earth, 3rd or 4th largest land wise.
Thailand has a drug problem too, but you don't see any thugs running around challenging the governments authority either.
Russia borders the EU, probably the largest or second largest drug consumer, how come no cartels there? Largest country by land size
What do all these 3 countries have in common? There is no democracy, thank god.
If there was democracy in China , it would be a shithole like India with gangs running around extorting money from people, we'd have a chinese version of yakuza with very creative torture methods.
