I think this is pretty much the way it is in the US too and many other countries! When there are gangs, terrorists and you name it on the streets nobody is safe anywhere!

Each human being has to start taking into account their own actions. Don't take the drugs, legalized marijuana, and offer Universal Health Care. If you don't take the hard drugs there is no business for them, if marijuana is grown legally then there is no need for the drug cartels, most people can use that drug safely. As for those who have drug addictions, many times when people want to get help the beds are full or they don't have the medical insurance. Get the people help medically, offer people opportunities for education, job training, and it prevents people from feeling hopeless that ends up turning to drugs. Then pay at "living wages" for those who don't get living wage some will try to supplement by selling drugs.

As long as machisimo is venerated there will never be resolution. Fear hides under bravado, and is the cause of all violence. Children do not raise themselves up in a vacuum, good/bad parenting has a lot to do with outcome. Until parents are willing to work on their own issues, there will always be problems in society.

Hopefully the power of motherhood will inspire the politicians to act more powerful against criminals!!...
