MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican authorities said on Tuesday they had found 29 bodies, packed in more than a hundred plastic bags, dumped in a clandestine grave in the violent western state of Jalisco.

 

Murders in Mexico jumped to the highest on record in the first half of the year, putting the cartel-ravaged country on track to surpass the 29,111 recorded last year.

 

Jalisco Attorney General Gerardo Solis told a news conference that since making the gruesome discovery in Zapopan municipality the first week of September, investigators had counted 13 complete and 16 incomplete bodies.

 

The state government and the state attorney general said two of the victims were women, and that at least four had criminal records, without specifying their crimes.

 

The body count could go up as the investigation progressed, according to a source at the state attorney general's office who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

 

In Mexico, cartels often kidnap and kill their rivals, many of whom are buried in clandestine graves scattered across the country.

 

Authorities have not yet said whether the mass grave was related to cartel violence, although Jalisco is home to several cartels, including one of the country's most notorious.

 

Jalisco New Generation Cartel, according to U.S. authorities, is one of the five most dangerous criminal organizations in the world.

The authorities know who  all these cartel scum are so why don't they just carpet bomb their homes, estates,ranches and buildings?

Modern day petrol bombs incinerate everything. They're very cheap to make .

Obviously law enforcement / courts etc is one of America's biggest employers. 

Won't happen like it does in Sicario1&2.

Funny that you provide your solution...then mention Sicario.  This ain't the movies.  Law enforcement, government officials, and the cartels are intertwined to the point of almost being indiscernible.  It would take a revolution, ala Castro or Chavez or Gaddafi, to right this country.  Of course, the leader of said revolution can't be allowed to stay in power too long, otherwise....

Use to spend 2-3 months a year in Barra de Navidad on the Pacific coast and a lot of time in PV prior to that . The experience I've had here in Thailand almost occurred in Mexico including marrying a local, wasn't till I worked in the KSA and consequently rr'd here that my plans changed. Great country with excellent people all just another casualty from the war on drugs. 20-30 yrs from now, when many of the great dinosaurs are dead, we're going to say 'what the hell were we doing?'. They'll say in history class ' Imagine that, they treated known medical issues and the pursuit for intoxication as criminal behavior and created the biggest and costliest debacles in law enforcement history. Not to mention enriched huge groups of psychopathic criminals beyond their wildest dreams. The victims are worldwide. It's time for a change.   

Had to post this.

Most of the killing here is done with a similar lethal weapon the pickup with a more random approach than hacking up rival cartel members🤔

One of the reasons I hold off on moving to Mexico and leaving Thailand.

Do the math. With drugs illegal cartels kill 29,000 and billions spent fighting drug use. Ask yourself, if drugs were legal, besides saving those billions of dollars, how many would die from their usage? Sure, many would be hospitalized, but with 29,000 dead annually in this war, just how many are wounded physically or mentally and end up hospitalized? But I do like the idea of carpet bombing their hideouts.
