    Bravo for getting this guy, but what is really scary about the whole situation in Mexico is that the long arm of drug money and threat can make life dangerous for any government officials, military or otherwise. As mentioned in the article, some military special forces types, (trained I believe by our military) have now gone to the cartel side. Money has a way of doing that, along with the threat to ones family if you don't go along. I worry that Mexico may not ever be able to stop this problem, and worse, that kind of powerful drug cartel could take root here in the U.S. Imagine if judges, prosecutors, police, ect. were to have their families threatened and killed for going against the drug lords. Pretty scary, and it's happpening in out neighboring country, not on the other side of the world.
