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."

It's slightly different there than it is in the U.S. Here, we can say all kinds of crazy shit with no repercussions whatsoever. Doesn't even matter if it's true or not. There, you speak out against the drug cartels or the drug-related violence, and some guys will come kill you, and probably your family as well.



Which is why they need to do something about it. Instead, they do nothing, and hope that they don't get caught in the crossfire. Doing nothing is a choice. Should Jefferson and Washington and Adams have done nothing, because the Brits may have shot them? Should the peoples of Egypt and Tunisia have done nothing because some of them may have been killed?
