At one of the local malls in Mexico City, we were walking along and spotted the vehicle on display above to advertise the services of a company that armors vehicles. In this case, it’s an armored Jeep. On the window of the Jeep is displayed the kind of caliber gunfire it could withstand. I noticed this particular one was not armored against the 7.62 caliber ammo used in AK-47s, the assault weapon favored by the narcos. So what good is “sort of” armoring? If you’re gonna do it, might as well go all the way. The kind of people shopping at this mall are the kind that have money _ which means they likely have security concerns.
After taking the photo above, a young saleswoman came up to me and told me no photos were allowed. She asked me to erase the photo. I talked my way out of it.
