On February 2, Mexico’s director for citizen security, Manuel Farfan Carriola, was assassinated on his way home from work. Also killed were four bodyguards and numerous police officers were also shot and wounded.
Intelligence indicates that the most likely perpetrator of this attack was the Zeta organization.
As we’ve seen with previous attacks by the Zetas, their operations are very complex and very violent and, in essence, they have absolutely no problem targeting senior public safety officials and police chiefs.
The symbolism of attacking and killing a very senior public safety official resonates not only through the Mexican government, but U.S. law enforcement and inside the beltway in Washington, D.C. It raises serious protective security concerns on the ability of the Mexican government to be able to adequately protect public officials.

While Mexico is not a superpower, it is an upper tier country, with highly sophisticated institutions.
That it’s public officials, including senior government security people with bodyguards and police protection are helpless in the face of even more sophisticated criminals is a very sad state of affairs.
Matthew 24:12 says;
Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
When law and order break down to this degree, you can expect a concurrent reduction in the compassion and love that people have for each other. When people are afraid they start looking out for themselves and growing indifferent to the problems of others.
But Yeshua (Jesus) warned in Matthew 5: 13-15;
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
If you call yourself a “Christian” than growing indifferent to other people’s problems is not an option. The world is getting darker by the day, and that means we must let our lights shine brighter to give hope to those who are seeking it.
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
