Why did the Mexcan Government wait until the citizens raised a militia of their own in order to get the protection they should have received from their government ?.

I thought the government is trying to crack down on these groups, but that could be in another state.

The problem I have with this is what happens when the Templars are gone?

The only interest the gov't. is trying to protect is its interest in the illegal drug trade.
