Mexico Government Has Abandoned PRD States to Cartels

tuSancho
"The Mexican government does not seek the monopoly of violence; it tolerates it in order to punish political enemies. It makes the confrontation [of organized crime] a matter of party politics, polarizing the country, fighting against organized crime, but selectively. It works in coordination with the states governed by the party [in power at the federal level], but ignores states governed by the opposition. It provides assistance to friends while denying help to opponents and then accusing the latter of negligence"

This is kind of a bizarre argument to throw at PRI, since narco violence is extremely high in PRI-governed states, such as Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Jalisco, Veracruz, Estado de México, Michoacán, (2011-2015), etc.

"Where the PRI and the PAN govern, the federal government implements effective military and police interventions."  Do what?  

PRI and effective military and police intervention?  In Tamaulipas?  Michoacán?  Really? PAN-governed states, generally, have lower narco and other violent incidents, but that's mainly because those states are land-locked in the interior of the country, e.g., Guanajuato, Aguascalientes, Querétaro, etc.

I think the whole article pivots on Guerrero, but there the PRI national government failed to act in order to protect PRD, which at the time was an important member of the famous or infamous "Pacto Por Mexico."

The last governor who resigned after the 43, was PRD; HOWEVER, he switched parties (from PRI) in order to run against his cousin who had the PRI backing already.
