3. Mexicans are already at the breaking point regarding cops and soldiers getting away with murder.

 

There have been huge marches in Mexico City and serious and prolonged rioting in the state of Guerrero over the disappearance of 43 radical student teachers at the hands of Iguala police. The mayor there is tightly linked with a local drug gang and has now vanished himself. The governor has been forced to resign. Pena Nieto is having to deal with this.

There's also the case of the 22 people apparently executed by soldiers in June in Mexico state. The army actually had to arrest some soldiers this time.

Now this case, involving US citizens.

During the drug wars (still ongoing), you would occasionally see press accounts of "vicious gun battles" between soldiers and cartel members. Funny thing was, there were no wounded cartel members and no soldiers injured, just a bunch of dead people.
