Blog del Narco Author Who Chronicled Mexico’s Drug War Forced To Flee

The author of a pioneering blog about Mexico’s drug war has said that she has fled the country and that her blog partner has gone missing.

The young woman, using her pseudonym Lucy, said her colleague phoned her last week to say a single word – “run” – and then vanished, prompting her to flee to the United States and then Spain.

“I’m trying to think positively but I’m scared something terrible has happened. ‘Run’ was our codeword for when something was very wrong. We had never used it before.”

Blog del Narco is an internet sensation which has chronicled Mexico’s drug war with graphic images and shocking stories few others dare show. It has been a must-read for authorities, drug gangs and millions of ordinary people.

    We are a little late for rethinking this idea of an engineered thug class on both sides of the border not unlike thwe ignorant religious and race wars going on in the middle east and the old soviet block countries full of muslims killing the christians while we go on about this or that.,

    The government and their masters in the central banks are to be blamed for this and those who take part in the dumbed down thug class warfare on the streets.

    Why all the fuss about Syria when atrocities are committed daily right next to the USA and with a major trading partner. The American government, DEA and NRA have no conscience. All with much bloodshed on their hands. American and Canadian government controlled media all turn a blind eye. I doubt there is a plan B in place that would end the nightmare created by Richard Nixon’s war on drugs. N.A. was much safer before it was implemented in the 1st place. Hats off to brave people like Lucy.
