Mexican Drug Wars: La Familia Vs Policia....Warning!! Graphic images!!

In the state of Michoacan about 21 bodies were found thrown onto the streets. The bodies were found on various streets outside the city of Morelia, West Mexico.

The State Prosecutor Jesus Montejano took the unusual step and revealed the messages which was found on the bodies. It read "Because society asked for it, this is going to happen to them who continue to rob houses, kidnappers and rapists."

Police also stated that some bodies were piled together, faces taped-up and some had marks of torture.

In the area of Michoacan live the notorious drug cartel LA FAMILIA. They control the state. They also are known for being over religious. It is assumed that they had a hand in this massacre.

Last year 12 policemen were beheaded and it was justified as the work of "divine violence".

They also sent a letter to the local media stating they would dissolve if the authority would control the state with "force and decision".

The official stated that it was not clear whether the message was authentic.

Mexico saw violence escalating at an incredible speed. It left 37,000 dead. People flee their home because of the drug related violence and fight between rival gangs. Another powerful drug cartel are the Zetas which are spreading all over Mexico.

The military launched a crackdown on organised crime. Hopefully they win for the sake of decent folks.
