On March 15, 1962, the 35th president of the United States of America, John F. Kennedy, gave a historic address to the US Congress concerning his views on consumer rights. He stated that we as citizens all have, "The right to safety-to be protected against products, production processes, and services that are hazardous to health or life." [CI] Forty-four years, eight months, and 26 days later, Mexico 's Drug War bypassed our right as consumers to be secure in our surroundings, services, and products and made the whole country uncertain of the events to come.

Not only can Los Zetas access our codes and hack our military-grade UAVs, they are able to get away with: money laundering, financial fraud, counterfeit goods, terrorist financing, drug trafficking, human trafficking, migrant smuggling, weapons trafficking, and certain aspects of cybercrime.
