Stories from the Drug War

The drug war in Mexico is a tragic history that contains many facts that seem larger than life. When Netflix created the hit TV series "Narcos", the directors felt that they had to tone down many true accounts to adapt them for the screen, as they felt there were too extreme to be believed. Unfortunately, this is a common reaction to those who are not familiar with the daily threats that terrorize many in Mexico. News about shootouts between sicarios and the Mexican Military with body counts in the dozens, of mass graves with skeletons in the hundreds, and assassinations of high ranking political figures sound like excerpts from an action or horror film. These are a reality for many. This page aims to document some of the most incredible and interesting moments from the war on "El Narco" in Mexico.
