Whack-a-mole Drug War: Mexico's Nationwide Crime Crackdown Captures 3,700

This is a coordinated action by Mexico's 31 state governors and the mayor of Mexico City, Ebrard. It is an escalation of the drug war. In Michoacan, it led to narcos commandeering cars and busses, burning them to block roads.

Mexico's Nationwide Crime Crackdown Captures 3,700: "More than 3,700 people were arrested in the first six days of a nationwide effort by Mexico's state police forces to crack down on street crime.

Final figures from the week-long push, called Conago-1, are set to be released Monday 20. The operation ran from June 13 to 19.

Ebrard announced that the purpose of this collaboration by state authorities was “to prevent and combat crimes such as vehicle theft, robberies on public transport, kidnapping, to recover weapons, dismantle criminal gangs.'"
