Kindergarten Teacher Turned Drug Lord Arrested

The people of Mexico are demanding more be done to put an end to the horrors incurred by these drug lords.

As a result, the Mexican government has made a significant effort for the last few decades to put an end to the seemingly never-ending string of drug trafficking and other major criminal activities which have wreaked havoc in their country for far too long.

Yesterday, officials arrested the kindergarten-teacher-turned-drug-lord Servando Gomez Martinez, also known as “La Tuta.”

La Tuta is the tenth major ring leader captured or killed by the Mexican government within a six year period. However, his arrest is thought to have been more of a political comfort than an actual solution to the problem since many believe his influence in drug trafficking has significantly declined.

Instead, many believe the Knights Templar (the group which Gomez had once led) is still strong and active in the area.
