Grid Down Acapulco: “There’s Nothing to Eat”

from Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

Though the government would like us to believe there is rarely looting or panic in the aftermath of a disaster, the fact of the matter is that within 72 hours of any serious crisis people will lose it.

Case in point: Acapulco Mexico.

This week flood waters and landslides ravaged the resort town of Acapulco and stranded a reported 40,000 tourists, leaving them without food, water, or any means of escape. Major roadways into and out of Acapulco have been blocked by debris, cutting off recovery efforts for the city’s 680,000 residents.

Chile just had rioting on the 20th anniversary of getting rid of pinochet (the fascist dictator who exterminated large parts of chile’s population), Thailand recently declared martial law, and Acapulco has large scale looting (you can see videos on youtube of this) in the diamond district where the richest live and the tourists mostly stay. The government did land a load of marines to stop the violence in the richest parts of acapulco though.
