wrote: The Elective Monarchial Empire of Crescitia Wow, the news here only mentions a bit about 40+ students missing and tensions raising, that's all. This is just baffling...how can someone become invulnerable by being a governor? I thought that the Italian government was corrupt but damn those Mexican politicians are pure mafia. He's still the governor, technically. Mexican law prevents its governors from resigning (for whatever reason) so he only took 'a leave of absence'. None of this is new, though, but it may finally have been the straw that broke the camel's back. I have been following the cartel news for a few years now and its far worse in other places. Los Zetas and the Sinaloa Cartel have been known to send their messages to each other via severed head. Like I said, the 43 may be a turning point, as many others want the president himself to resign, just because of his inaction. wrote: The Holy Catholic Czardom of Wagafraga There are no words for something like this. I'm speechless. I was too when I first heard about it. Usually this is quite normal for the cartels, but the mayor and his wife? That sounds like it is coming straight out of a telanovela. Most people believed the government was working with the cartels up until now, but they have never been this sloppy. wrote: The Most Serene Republic of Veneza On September 26, 2014, 43 male students from the College of Ayotzinapa went missing in Iguala, Guerrero State, Mexico. The students were protesting government discrimination and hiring practices. They took buses to Iguala where the mayor's wife was preparing to run for the senate, and was holding an event. The police stopped the buses and opened fire into them, killing six and injuring twenty-five. After the shootout, eyewitnesses said that students were rounded up and forced into police vehicles. At some point, while still alive, the students were handed over by the police to members of the Guerreros Unidos ("United Warriors"), a criminal organization in Guerrero. According to Guerrero Unidos testimony, the students were tortured and presumably burned alive. With the forty three still officially missing, the mayor (José Luis Abarca) and his wife (María de los Ángeles Pineda Villa, whose brothers were known members of Beltrán-Leyva Cartel) fled the city.
They were captured a few weeks later, and allegedly she was the one who ordered the police to do this (Not-so-fun-fact: the Media has taken to calling her 'The First Lady of Murder'). Protests erupted across Mexico after these revelations, coupled with the fact that the government is doing next to nothing to find them. The attorney General had to make this worse by ending a press conference with "I'm tired, and I've had enough." Protestors in Iguala itself burned down the city hall. On October 27, 2014, the authorities arrested four members of Guerreros Unidos; according to officials, two of them received a large group of people from other gang members in Iguala on the night the mass abduction took place. Their testimonies helped the authorities locate new mass graves in Cocula, Guerrero, about 10 mi from Iguala. These were
unrelated to the 43 missing students.
With enormous pressure, the governor stepped down. On November 9, 2014, there was a demonstration in Mexico City during which the protesters carried handmade banners with the words Ya me cansé (Ive Had Enough or Im Tired), in reference to the comment above. Protesters also chanted: "Fue el Estado" (It was the State). Some masked protesters broke away from the otherwise peaceful demonstration as it drew to a close, tore down the protective metal fences set up around the National Palace in Mexico Citys main Zócalo plaza and set fire to its imposing wooden door. Clashes with riot police followed before the square was cleared.
There were more protests on November 20, in Mexico City, with thousands taking part in three separate marches. Protests also took place in other parts of Mexico and abroad. Mexican President Peńa Nieto accused some of the protesters of trying to "destabilize" the state. There have been rumors that the Mexican military may intervene if protests continue. Nothing much since then.

Here's what the protest looked like.
And Americans have the audacity to think we have bad politicians.

These guys aren't as stupid as Mexican politicians thinking that they would get away by letting 43 people dissapear at once. Oh and a lot of Americans have guns at home, they could actually start a very nasty revolt. wrote: The Elective Monarchial Empire of Crescitia Oh they have, but on a whole other level.

I am an American and I must say, I often do not realize how good we have it, here we are complaining about our President, making accusations about him because he does not believe the same things we do, and in Mexico, mayors are responsible for the disappearance of 43 people, and the response to this from American media is a simple "Boo-hoo" it makes me so mad, because if someone in America would do this, there would be an armed revolt and everyone would go nuts, but because it is in Mexico, we collectively respond, "Who cares?!" wrote: The Königreich of Blyskalia I am an American and I must say, I often do not realize how good we have it, here we are complaining about our President, making accusations about him because he does not believe the same things we do, and in Mexico, mayors are responsible for the disappearance of 43 people, and the response to this from American media is a simple "Boo-hoo" it makes me so mad, because if someone in America would do this, there would be an armed revolt and everyone would go nuts, but because it is in Mexico, we collectively respond, "Who cares?!" This is why I have told everyone here and even thrown up a thread in NSG. Even if you don't care about the people this is affecting, one can appeal to the selfish side of some Americans. Its happening in Mexico, and if it gets worse, it will spill over into our country.
Although I will confess that I have some Schadenfreudic glee knowing that the president's "Corrupt seizure of monarchical power" saved five-million people from going back to the place where decapitated remains are hung from overpasses, and whether your son is coming home from work is a legitimate worry.
