Mexico vs. Call of Juarez: The Cartel

State legislators in Chihuahua, Mexico are looking to ban Call of Juarez: The Cartel over unhappiness that the Techland's upcoming western shooter sequel depicts the drug-related violence from which the border town suffers. The Washington Post quotes Chihuahua congressman Ricardo Boone Salmon saying: "It is true there is a serious crime situation, which we are not trying to hide," Boone Salmon said. "But we also should not expose children to this kind of scenarios so that they are going to grow up with this kind of image and lack of values." They also quote State congress leader Enrique Serrano: "Children wind up being easily involved in criminal acts over time, because among other things, during their childhood not enough care has been taken about what they see on television and playing video games," Serrano said. "They believe so much blood and death is normal."

The only thing the US and Mexican government should be focusing in right now, is legalizing drugs. It's pretty damn clear Americans love to get high, and while it's a health issue, it's their choice, even if it's a poor one.

Such a false reason to legalize anything. The violence will never go away.

No, but it will go way down. Crime rose 24% nationwide during prohibition in the US. Murder was up 12%. It's not the druggies, it's the organized criminals behind the illegal drug market.

Have you ever been face to face with a drug addict? Have you watched a kid pick his sores even though there is no skin there and he is diggin in a blood pit on his arm? have you gone into a flop house after a bunch of junkies just ran from it? Have you seen how people in the throws of a drug binge live?

Yes, yes I have. There are functional druggies as well as dysfunctional druggies. Just like alcoholics. Shit, just like any addict of anything. They make a choice, and they must deal with the consequences. The way it stands now, we all have to pay for them.
It is nothing like alcohol. I see both all the time. I have cases of both in my family. They aren't even remotely similar.
Bullshit. I've seen people in the ER so fucked up from drinking binges that they were literally puking their guts out. I watched one guy die on a gurney as he was being rushed in because he though a case of redbull and a bottle of vodka at 10am was a good breakfast.
The drug war in the US is to prevent the drugs. The drug war south of the border is for control of the drugs in the area. The government doesn't give 2 squats about it's people or the "problem".

Huge difference. If you claim otherwise, you are living in a world with a different color sky. You want weed legalized? Fine, I really don't care. It doesn't get charged anyway at the local level in any form. The rest of the stuff....it isn't natural. It is made in a lab and it is not ok. On any level.

Cocaine is natural. They process the powder into a concentrated form, but chewing coca leaves is something people have been doing forever. Also, many drugs are made in a lab. So what? You think we should all be getting Polio because the shot was made in a lab and it's bad?
Legalizing it will just give them permission to kill eachother for the rights to the land where they are killing eachother. People want to legalize things for their own selfish needs, not for the better of the whole. if you were to even legalize weed and try and regulate it and "tax the hell out of it" like everyone says, they will just do the same they are doing now, but the price might go down.

Spoken like a man who has truly done 0 research on the subject.
