Default What will reduce crime in Mexico?

I believe that before the end of the AMLO sexenio, the Mexican people will force a huge reduction in corruption and trafficking.
The Mexican People are already sick and tired of having their jobs stolen by illegal aliens and the crime they cause on their transit to the Northern border.
Human traffickers are kidnapping children to be sold as sex slaves in the US.
Closing down the trafficking on the Northern and Southern borders will starve the cartels and the deep state.
This will cause problems at first but it is the key to making Mexico Great Again.
I love Mexico and Mexicans. They deserve to be able to experience safety and prosperity in their home and continue their wonderful cultures. (I used the plural of culture because Mexican cultures are regional.)
Whether you think I am right or wrong does not matter but I look forward to your predictions, hopefully positive.

What reduces crime is a good public education system, good medical care, government social programs to help the poor and otherwise disadvantaged, and economic opportunities (legal ones).

I agree. Also adequate wages are key, especially for those in law enforcement to help reduce the allure of petty bribery and corruption. I also believe that training new, young law enforcement officers, emphasizing the rule of law and integrity, and ensuring adequate pay is essential. I recently was speaking with a police officer who had to leave Mexico with his family due to safety concerns. He had been specially trained and put right into a leadership position in the police force in his city, rather than rising through the ranks. A lot of the older officers resented that, but moreso they resented that he did not turn a blind eye to the corruption he saw, both within the police force itself, as well as in the mayor's office. He feels proud of the bit he was able to do to change the culture of corruption in Mexico, but he paid a high price for his integrity. Fortunately he survived and was able to get out of Mexico alive with his young family. Others have not been so lucky.

Perhaps in both countries, conscription would help. Once drafted, discipline and useful training could begin in trades, professions and some soldiering, as needed. No discharge until a marketable civilian trade certification is earned. Bad actors to be dealt with appropriately; not turned loose on the public.

funny you say that RV , that is what my husband and I said as well. military service whether in the armed forces or working doing community service probably would expose a lot of kids to other races, cultures and as you said discipline and probably would help opening the mind of some.
Many times the most racist people are people who do not know blacks or latinos or anyone from another culture and have no contact with anyone outside of their own culture. Is s really important to force young people to mix with people who are different and respects other cultures.,

The same things I mentioned above. Countries that make sure their citizens are well-looked after and educated have far lower crime rates than countries that don't.

This is the kind of thing that breeds crime: https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/eff...s-in-10-years/

I have to disagree with you, RV and Citlali, about the military service. While of course that would teach young people a sense of responsibility, it's parents' jobs to instill good values in their children, and teach by example. We shouldn't have to send our kids to military school to accomplish those kids turning out to be decent members of society. But it seems alot of parents are falling down on that job these days- just buying their kids all the latest devices and thinking that being "friends" with their kids is what parenting is all about.

I am not talking about a school but about the military service at 18.. There are plenty of kids who do not get out of their environement and are uner bad nfluence from their own family or from their neighborhodd and friends,THe military service breaks those ties for a while and mix the young men and women should go to , expose them to discipline and a differnt way to live. here should be no exception and all rich and poor should have to serve... . It could be a military / community service type of work but the kids should be getting out of their environement and mix with other socio economic class kids, other races, other cultures,, Parents cannot do that,
