Default Gasoline pipeline explosion in Mexico.

My wife sent me this and it's all in Spanish. There was a gasoline pipeline explosion in Mexico yesterday and there are many dead and injured. Apparently this has been going on for sometime and I'm not sure of the specifics, but people are breaking into the pipelines and stealing gas. The video shows people with large containers going up to the break and filling them. My wife said that there is a shortage of tanker trucks or something and problems delivering gas. I'm just attributing it to more of F'd up Mexico.

If they were stealing gas then they got what they deserved.

Idiots and the Cartels have been doing this for years. The Cartels bring in tanker trucks and tap the pipe with a saddle so no BS like in that video. More info here.

It's not the first time and most likely won't be the last time that has happened. I wonder if all the American ambulance chasers will be able to get into Mexico to sue everybody in sight over this as easily as Mexicans seem to be able to get into the US.

Cartels have been stealing $Billions of gasoline each year. Gov't is trying to get a handle on it. Maybe its connected?

Thou shalt not steal.

Mexico Is a **** house of corruption and criminality. I've read that PEMEX has recorded 48,000 incidents of pipeline tapping this year. Another internet article I read recently is that trucking companies are armor proofing their tractors to. help thwart hijacking.....on the open road. Read testimony from El Chapo's NY trail that a past President of Mexico wanted a $250 million dollar bribe, El Chapo's cartel settled with $100 million. Corruption in Mexico is a cultural inheritance as a Spanish colony. With the drug cartels, Mexico is rotting.

Do we want these people in our country? They violate our immigration laws, they obtain fake driver's licenses and SSN's, they will commit ID theft, they will work and not pay income taxes, they ignore traffic regulations....DUI...no problem, no paid fine, they ultimately obtain welfare. This is a population that has evolved with no ethical standards.

After the explosion, you can see people running who are on fire. At the end you can see people in their underwear with burnt skin. They are not going to get good medical care.

Just shows how fucked up Mexico is. That pipeline spewed gasoline for hours and wasn't shut down. Mexicans can **** up anything.

pretty much....AMLO has shut down the pipelines and trying to move fuel via trucks and train to get around the cartels, this has caused shortages in mainland mexico....everything that is wrong in Mexico is the cartels....that is why we don't want that here in this country....overall the people are not the issue, its the cartels and the crooked politicians.....thats what socialism brings you and yet the left wants it here
