Vendors affirm that people are no longer interested in dressing up as ghosts, and seek to dress a lot of bills as drug lords with machine guns and the Chapo mask, as they seek to accept the reality of drug trafficking as a lifestyle to which many aspire.

Taxi Drivers Sanctioned for Advocating Violence with Ornaments in Acapulco

Despite the fact that in some places, such as Sinaloa, sanctions were announced for considering that decorating with objects constitutes an apology for violence, this has not prevented some people and business owners from continuing to use them.

“We have weapons, rifles, they no longer want to dress up as ghosts, they want to dress up as capos, they already have their hands, a machine gun and Chapo’s mask, a lot of bills, times are changing, it’s fashionable,” said another.

Days of the Day of the Dead and Halloween celebrations, it is increasingly common to see figures of bagged and mutilated, as a normalization of the violence that exists in the country. Despite the fact that in some places, such as Sinaloa, they announced sanctions, considering that these practices constitute an apology for violence, this has not prevented some people and business owners from continuing to use this type of adornment.

In a bar in Playa Vicente, south of Veracruz, two bundles wrapped in black bags were hung and a liquid that simulated blood was spilled on the ground.

In Veracruz, faced with the controversy over the placement of “pockets” in the Dorado Park children’s center, in Boca del Río, councilor Belem Palmeros pointed out that “it is humiliating and offensive to thousands of victims of violence in the country” and demanded the closure of the place and a public apology.

“Commerce has decided to join this campaign and will not sell toy weapons and articles alluding to violence,” said Oscar Sánchez, president of the Culiacán Tenants Union.

Despite the fact that the Government of Sinaloa warned that there will be sanctions for those who use toy weapons, hitman costumes, drug traffickers’ masks, bloody dolls and circulate in vehicles with alleged bullet wounds, some sites display decorations with “hanging men”.

In places of the Mercado de Sonora in Mexico City, dismembered figures are offered without hesitation.

“For people to open their eyes, see that it is already a reality to accept the narco, it is already a lifestyle for many,” said a vendor.

“We have weapons, rifles, they no longer want to dress up as ghosts, they want to dress up as capos, they already have their hands, a machine gun and Chapo’s mask, a lot of bills, times are changing, it’s fashionable,” said another.

“We also sell bagged, in Tik Tok they already labeled us as it is, the harsh reality but you definitely have to have a little humor in the face of the ugly,” said the seller Ana Laura.

“Other times it has been more comical and now I want to make it more terrifying, something like blood, hands, costumes of some dolls and I see that they sell broken legs and all that to make it more realistic,” said a buyer.

Traders said they were surprised by buyer demand.

“Well, they are finished but we sold what were complete torsos and legs, they came, that is, with their hands cut off their legs, obviously without their heads and their organs were already exposed, I thought they were not going to be sold, but they were sold more than normal,” said another trader.

“This year La Peste and Scream have sold a lot. El Chapo that there is no longer a single one has finished, it has sold very well and we have new queen Isabel, “said another merchant.

“How is it possible that this is being sold in the markets, that is very painful or should be very painful for all of us to see human remains being sold,” reproached another buyer.

In recent days cablebus authorities removed two bagged people who had been placed in an offering at the Campos Revolución station, on Line 1.

In Acapulco, last weekend, four taxi drivers on the Renacimiento-Centro route were sanctioned for decorating their units with figures alluding to murdered people.

“It is no longer correct in a public service vehicle, life and the moments that we are spending here in our Mexico to promote this type of situation or circumstance,” concluded Juan Miguel Castillo Zamora, Acapulco Transportation delegate.
