At least 20 bodies found in western Mexico

Authorities found more than 20 bodies inside three abandoned vehicles in Guadalajara, Mexico, Thursday, state media reported.

The vehicles were discovered near a monument on one of the city's main avenues, the state-run Notimex news agency said, citing police sources.

Officials did not release the exact number of bodies found Thursday morning.

Jalisco state Attorney General Tomas Coronado Olmos told CNN affiliate TV Azteca that a message was found with the bodies, but he did not disclose what it said.

    I couldn't believe it. I had to read the entire thing 4 or 5 times before it finally sunk in...that's a sentence, not a story. I was hoping for a paragraph at least.

    Listen....why are the American people so gullible? By now it should be obvious that mexico is complicit in all this....any nation that wants to stop these things extreme law can essentially give police dictatorial powers in certain provinces...if the nation wants it....but like Illegal immigration...mexico just pretends not to have anything to do with it all but are actually fact....get this....If not for the fact that Gun running into Mexico from America which is starting to destabilize Mexico..and so the US is actually getting even in this way and threatens not to do anything about it if Mexico does not do something about its drug smugling...these people would do nothing and just claim that it;s America that's at fault for wanting the drugs....Americans really have to get with reading between the lines....and understanding what is not said even better than what is...because most of the time people trying to rip you off are not going to tell you about it....and with our nation...IT SEEMS JUST ABOUT EVERYONE IS TRYING TO RIP US OFF, EVEN OUR OWN!!!!! THIS HAS TO END IF THINGS ARE EVER GOING TO GET BETTER.
