              You can tell a drug convoy from a civilian convoy in 10 seconds. It was a planned attack. They have a long term past/ hatred for those families from way back. Lots of articles available. The risk is beyond real in those regions and traveling on those roads flat out dangerous. The families have to move now out of Mexico, no doubt. You can’t play American house in cartel regions to bypass societal norms and not assume a huge risk.

                  American citizens stop buying illegal drugs. If you think the illegals crossing into America don't have drug shipments on them you are a fool. Cut off their money.

Cartels will have their revenge, and will not overlook their chance to strike back, even if it ended in the murdering of these women & innocent children.

I’m sure these Mexican drug cartel CRIMINALS really care about US or Mexican laws, especially any gun control laws. Booooo. BS! Exactly why citizens should be armed, criminals are and they don’t follow laws.

The children who parished are innocent and in heaven now but probably not good news for the adult women that tragically lost their lives.
