41 Mexican prison guards charged in mass jailbreak



41 Mexican prison guards 
 charged in mass jailbreak


The federal Attorney General's office says in a statement that 41 guards have been accused of opening the gates of the prison in Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo, Texas. If convicted, the guards face up to 20 years in prison.

Tamaulipas has been torn by turf battles between the Gulf and Zetas drug gangs, but it was unclear whether any of the inmates belonged to those groups.

 I must admit the two questions that came to mind on the escape;
1) Did the guards release prisoners because of bribes?
2) Were the guards being blackmailed with violent threats towards their families?

What ever the reasons prohibition is the cause of high prices of cannabis that is a major part of cartels income that is fueling violence.
