The war in Mexico's own backyard

Part 1:
The bad economy for the world as a whole has really taken a toll in the rising drug war. The more the economy goes bad, for some reason, the drugs become higher in demand as well making it hard for authorities to control. In this particular case, one of the biggest drugwars and gang violence ever seen happens to be in Mexico's own back yard. The Zeta are the claimed to be responsible for the mass killings happening in Mexico and they are said to be the most brutal and sadistic gang murders ever to be seen. An example of this is the 49 bodies found in Mexico just this past Sunday. The bodies were so mutilated that they were unable to be identified by police  because they were decapitated, limbs cut off, and body's so badly bruised and punctured that they were only able to identify the sex of the dead.
The Zeta are known for their brutality and terror that they bring to the Mexican civilians. They murder all types of people; men, women, and children. This is why so many people are terrified in Mexico and are trying to get away as fast as possible. They don't know however that the Zeta have spread their roots into some of our own biggest cities including Baltimore. They decapitate their victims, punccture and destroy the bodies, and cut off limbs. Best known for leaving victims heads on poles, and hanging bodies from bridges.

Part 2:
My favorite part of The Road was the scene with the father in the son going to sleep at night outside because this shows the struggles that the two had gone through without even needing to say anything, by how they talk to each other and what they say you can tell that all they have are eachother and you can feel the pain that they have gone through emotionally.

"Can I ask you something?"
"Yes. Of course you can."
"What would you do if I died?"
"If you died I would want to die too."
"So you could be with me?"
"Yes. So I could be with you."

This in itself is heart wrenching; coming from a boy to his father you know that the boy means exactly what he is asking. Looking at them talking about death, shows you that they both have seen their fair share of death and destruction.
