From Prison to Politics: Mexico’s Hot Land (Dispatch 4)


Lo que pasa en esta
región depende en gran medida de la rivalidad
entre grupos, uno encabezado por Hipólito
y otro liderado por otro chico
conocido como el “Americano”. Se pelearon violentamente
y fueron encarcelados, y hace
pocos días los sacaron en libertad. Aquí puedes ver las
marcas en la pared, hay un montón de balas. Porque hubo
un brutal tiroteo y
mucha gente murió. Las balas atravesaron
las paredes, aquí vemos
muchas pequeñas cruces. Todas tienen la misma
fecha, y son de hace solo
unos tres meses. Así que esto está aún
muy presente para la gente de aquí. El hombre que vamos
a entrevistar, Hipolito Mora, está
ahora fuera de la cárcel. Fue imputado
por homicidio, por los tiros que justo
antes os mencioné. Durante todo este tiempo
se ha cuestionado su prisión así
que vamos a preguntarle sobre eso. Es muy triste escuchar
a alguien como Hipolito. Sobre todo a cerca de su hijo
que fue asesinado hace poco porque realmente parece
que su grupo es bastante indefenso
contra los cárteles a los que se enfrentan. Y realmente parece
muy honesto cuando dice que
él no quiere hacer nada contra el tráfico de drogas
en la región. Porque eso
contamina a la gente aquí. La sensación que tengo
es que él está preparado para la paz pero también la guerra. Y ya es mucho más
de lo que hemos estado escuchando todo este tiempo.

  1. VICE News met with Mora in Michoacán to find out what his political goals are following his release from prison, and whether the release of “El Americano” means another shootout can be expected.

  2. I think everyone can admit that the war on drugs was a complete failure, the best way to mitigate the violence in Mexico is to reduce the demand by legalization….the government must stop killing and incarcerating millions just to make money, stop the injustice and corruption of the governments of the US and Mexico

  3. You Mexicans care more about money and drugs than human lives. It's disgusting you just have a shit ton of kids and come to the U.S. And ask for benefits stay in your own shithole.

  4. It only makes sense for him to want to join in on politics being everyone involved are complete crooks, liars, and drug pushers themselves….

  5. no ay porque hipolito se ande metiendo en esos problemas , y siempre hubo palabras que hipolito tambien se mete al trafico 

  6. I like this new dispatch into Mexico. It gives great insight into the war on drugs going on over there. The American media does not focus much attention onto this war but it is important that someone is reporting on such an important war. 

  7. and all this is because americans are fucking pathetic people….. most drug addicts in the world
    thank you Murica

  8. It's not a war on drugs, it's a war on the people and your are people.

    bow to your masters and obey.

    God bless America

  9. Hipolito told them becareful with what you say there recording here. The dumb Colombian bitch probably thinks every thing they tell her is the truth hahaha

  10. Hey that's Bullshit ! Vice didn't film this they just put their logo and date on it 😐 I saw this last month on bestgore I think ???

  11. Stop sending your damn people to my country!! My tax payer money is being used to deport their asses back. Sell your tacos some where else, we don't want them.~Richard Parker

  12. The fake and retarded war on drugs was started by the dumb and drug addict Bush junior and continued fast and furious by Obumer the gun runner. The consequence of this are these Vice's propaganda videos.

  13. This woman is Colombian? She must be bottom of the barrel then, because all the Colombian women I've seen in Miami are hot and have voluptuous bodies. this bitch skinny as fuck.

  14. RARO QUE EL VIEJITO LE DIGA "PADRINITO" A HIPOLITO Y EL DIGA QUE NO HABLARA QUE ESTABAN GRABANDO; SIEMPRE HE PENSADO QUE DE ALGUNA MANERA ESE HIPOLITO ES NARCO TAMBIEN…….ALGUIEN CREE LO MISMO??

  15. As Alcohol Prohibition gave rise to Bootleggers and organized criminal syndicates In the 20's, the U.S.' "war on Drugs" and ensuing prohibition of Marijuana and other narcotics; has created the emergence of the Mexican Cartels. Washington's failed drug policing policy has only benefited the market for illicit substances by deeming them illegal; allowing criminal organizations south of the Rio Grande to capitalize from the sale of these drugs of which they profit tenfold. The CIA who has long colluded with the drug-trade also has stake in the prohibition of these narcotics, which they use to fund their covert operations; without having to be accountable to whats being done with Taxpayers money.

  16. NOW THIS IS SOME REAL GANGSTER SHIT,BLACK RAPPERS NEED TO.BE SEND TO MEXICO TO SEE IF THEY REALLY GANGSTER OR FAKE.

  18. These fucking scum bags are given Ford Raptors while we in the U.S. are working are asses off 5 days a week 8+ hrs a day and paying fucking house mortgages. Shit, let me go to Michoacan.

  19. It's a big market of drugs in American countries, so drug war not going to stop in near future. At least if some other drugs going be more popular.

  20. The war on drugs is fake, the war on drugs is a scam, the war on drugs is an utopia…

    Violence in Mexico is created by the CIA and DEA.

  21. Obama made a bad choice! With everything vote rep! If the comment section is going to be like this it a fail for america!!

  22. JA JA JA JA JA JA JA JAJAJAJAJAJA.. INCHE BALACERA MAS FALSA QUE UN BILLETE DE OCHO DOLARES !!!!!!!!
    NO MAMES VICE, INCHE PROPAGANDA  MALHECHA, CULERA Y VARATA.
    SAY NO TO COCAINE, YOUR BRAIN CELLS ARE DYING.

  23. mob bosses are fighting thats are common in the underworld just like the mafia long time ago. go find something more importance news

  24. Why the fuck do cartels exist? There is plenty of drugs in the United States, Why would the United States need more drugs from cartels if they have weed and drug stores everywhere?

  25. When he says shut up they're recording us, that's when I really question the honesty or if this is just another one trying to get a piece of the cake.

  26. I love Michoacán, that’s where my parents are from. My father is from a village near Quiroga and my mom is near La Piedad. Tierra Caliente is just a fucking hell hole. Innocent people die because there caught in the middle of it.

  27. At 4:10 a guy shouting "Godfather" gets told to keep quiet. This guy is a gangster just like the guys he's pitted against.
