Call of Juarez: The Cartel Details, Trailer

A new trailer for Call of Juarez: The Cartel is now available, offering a cinematic look at Techland's upcoming modern-day installment in this wild west shooter series. They also offer new details on the game, which will feature three central characters with individual stories and endings and support for three-player co-op. Word is: "Call of Juarez: The Cartel has a deep and gritty storyline that begins with a fictional drug cartel bombing a U.S. law enforcement agency, devastating the building and killing hundreds of people. The attack is a surprise, leading the U.S. to believe that cartel members had somehow infiltrated federal agencies. In a last-ditch effort, the U.S. puts together a special task force to hunt down and stop the drug cartel." Here are screenshots and artwork and the embedded version of the trailer follows.

If we looked at the addicts suffering from a medical condition and treat it as such instead of just tossing them in jail.

That won't change a thing. Drug addicts take drugs because they are apathetic. They don't care about their lives, they just care about getting their next fix. There's no reason why they would voluntarily check themselves into rehab and there's no reason why they stop buying drugs. Even if drugs were made legally made available through medical clinics, there would naturally be strict limits on the dosages that could be given to any one patient. That wouldn't be enough for junkies and they would end up either stealing the drugs or buying them from an illegal source.

No, drug addicts should be treated like criminals. Don't even bother arresting them. That's a waste of time and money. If they fail the drug test, shoot them on the spot. Junkies obviously don't care about their own well-being or the well-being of others, so why should anyone care about them?

Because I'm pretty sure having people drive around coked up on meth and PCP is not a good idea.

Contrary to what many stoners say, having them drive around on weed is an awful idea, too.

I'm just not wholly convinced this war on drugs is working.
On the flip side, with all the leisure time we have I'm not convinced sending the message that drugs are ok and not something to be somewhat ashamed of is a good idea, either. I say "somewhat" to mean similar to the way alcohol is - that doing it on weekends is ok (ignoring one drink, as one drink doesn't change you the way one hit does), but doing it alone in your apartment during daylight hours isn't.

Eh, I'm jumping on the band wagon to ponder - the idea of ending the war on drugs. That won't be enough, but what would happen if we shifted our focus on describing it as criminal to medical. If we looked at the addicts suffering from a medical condition and treat it as such instead of just tossing them in jail. Although, the ones who profit from selling it should still be treated as criminals.

Are you proposing that ALL drugs be legalized? Or just weed? Because I'm pretty sure having people drive around coked up on meth and PCP is not a good idea. How many people are killed or injured each year in drunk driving-related incidents? Multiply that by 10 or so if hard drugs become legal and readily available.

Looks like a game that doesn't know what genre it wants to be. Trailer didn't grab me at all unfortunately. Course some actual gameplay footage may help.

What about all the other nations that combat illicit narcotics? Or is the U.S. to blame for absolutely every ill of the world? FYI, pretty much every nation of laws controls or restricts drugs. Some are more tolerant of certain ones (ie Marijuana).
