    Exclamation Drug Decriminalization Behind Terrifying Cartel-Style Killings In California

    "Just last week, a small town in California’s Central Valley saw a cartel-style killing of six people, including a 72-year-old woman, a 16-year-old girl, and her 10-month-old baby who she was cradling in her arms as she ran away from the killers. The massacre has raised the specter that the brutal violence that plagues much of Mexico, including the killing of children and family members by drug cartels, has arrived in the U.S. The killing occurred in the small city of Goshen, about a 30-minute drive southeast of Fresno on highway 99."

    Yet, this lasted about 30 seconds in the news cycle. Don’t want to attract attention to what Democrat policy is doing to destroy this country.

    Is it the decriminalization of drugs or the close proximity of Mexico and cartels? The article mentions the Netherlands. Is it provable that their lack of violence is because of no open air drug markets or no large violent drug cartels?

    This article is BS.
    “We don't know what it is yet,” said reporter Ioan Grillo, a journalist who has covered the Mexican drug cartels for 20 years. "I'd be surprised if the cartels were directly doing it because the Sinaloa cartel doesn’t want to bring all the heat on their people in the area."
    This could more likely be "Home Grown" and made to look Cartel to scare the locals.

    Yep. It would be like airing a special on the shitbag homeless junkies that litter the Liberal city streets.

    Why is it surprising that a state largely governed by Mexicans for Mexicans, is turning into Mexico?

    This !
    If you want to shut down the competition simply do the most violent crime possible to make a fake point. It's some wanna be Cartel idiots riding their rep.
    If I'm right, their lives aren't worth a plugged nickle now.

    I grew up in the vast farmlands of the San Joaquin, this stuff has been going on there since I can recall. Same story, different year.

    There's nadda for cause and effect of decriminalization with "Terrifying Cartel-Style Killings In California" and the article is clickbait fail that was a wasted read.

    We all know CA is FUBAR, and how their approach/policies to criminals, illigals, guns, etc, etc etc and their specific approach to decriminalization may be a factor too.

    Fact remains as long as there's a hodgepodge of different states with different approaches, vs a WAY overdue to change in fed drug status and approach to the (failed by any metric one wishes to apply...) war on drugs, we will continue to see varying levels of success/failures on drug decriminalization and drug cartels shifting their approach.

    For example, we know the decriminalization of weed by so many states has cut deep into cartel profits, so they shifted to making, transporting, and selling something far more dangerous, to ride on the opioid mess we created: fentanyl.

    It's really not rocket science and if we only had history and prescience to look to as to how useless and damaging Prohibition is. Oh wait...
