However, no-parole incarceration,(with humane conditions), not luxury accommodations and/or services, might keep these kingpins off the streets, and reduce aspiring wannabes and underlings.

Thank you for giving a personal view of a tragedy that is all too easily given a generic hate label and forgotten.

The cartels have given Mexico a war, but Mexico is not responding accordingly. When captured, the criminal gets a warm bed and a warm meal along with other benefits he can buy from corrupted gatekeepers. And the criminals continue to carry on their criminal activities until they escape. As cartels become stronger, Mexico becomes weaker. And Mexico expects to win, really?? What a joke.

Robert Oppenheimer spoke about when the first nuclear bomb was exploded.

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed… A few people cried… Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form, and says, “Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.” I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

J. Robert Oppenheimer

The quote is from the Bhagavad Gita (“Song of the lord”)

Our neighbors to the south, simply want what all of us want,
to live in peace.
The blood being spilt by our neighbors is not without a moral price to be paid by all of us.

They deserve our help, not our pity.

Our neighbors need our love our prayers and our business just to try and stay alive.

Where is the compassion, humanity, and moral character that made this country great?

We are either part of the problem, or part of the solution.

Photojournalism at its highest standard! thank you!
