Mexican Vigilantes/Banditos Fight back Against Drug Gangs

Vigilantes who have taken up arms against drug gangs and criminals in the southern state of Guerrero announced Thursday that they would hold trials for 50 men and 3 women whom they had detained in improvised jails. The detainees are accused of offenses like kidnapping, extortion and taking part in organized crime. 

Villagers set up armed patrols and roadblocks in the township of Ayutla de los Libres almost one month ago to defend themselves against crime, saying the authorities had failed to ensure peace and safety. So far, the state government has tolerated but not formally recognized the self-defense squads. Bruno Pl├ícido, the leader of the vigilantes’ movement, said the detainees would be given a trial by an assembly of villagers, possibly beginning next week.
