The MexiMorman War: Mitt Romney’s Family vs The Mexican Drug Cartels

I came across an interesting documentary about how the cartels of Juarez, Mexico, are at war with a group of Mormons, some of whom are related to Mitt Romney.  Although this may sound sensational and heroic, keep in mind, that violence, corruption and murder has not been committed by the Drug Cartels alone.  Vice films went there to document the conflict, meet Romney’s Mexican Mormon family, and find out more about how US policy is impacting the war on drugs.

Mexico reforms legal system:Oral trials introduced in Mexico courts

At least 40,000 people have died in the Mexican government‘s war on drugs over the past five years.

Victims of violence have often had little faith in the country’s justice system, in large part because of corruption in the courts.

In 2008, the government approved radical changes to the system and now defendants are going before judges under a new system of oral trials that will see a complete rollout by 2016.
