Anti-government protests are escalating in parts of Mexico and it’s not hard to figure out why.
The core frustration fueling the protests is the government’s poor handling of the disappearance, and presumed slaughter, of 43 male student teachers.
A collection of corrupt police, officials and drug cartel members are reportedly behind the awful crime that occurred in the city of Iguala.
Three cartel members have confessed saying they burnt the student’s bodies at a public dump and threw the remains in a river.
AFP says drug-fueled violence has killed more than 80,000 people in Mexico since 2006.
Is Mexico a failed narco state? Sadly it seems undeniably so.
