A recent city-wide gun battle in Mexico that took social media by storm has demonstrated the Mexican government’s failure to stifle cartel activity after battling the violent criminal gangs for over a decade.
If anything, the Sinaloa cartel’s successful assault against government forces to free the son of drug lord “El Chapo” from custody shows that they’re the ones that are running the show.
