MEXICO : Army And Narco Gang Knights Templar Share Uneasy Truce In Michoacan.

         LONG READ

      Since the army wiped out the narco thugs of La Familia Michoacana in outgoing President Calderon's home state...a splinter narco band formed...the mystic pseudo-religious Knights Templar.
     Now the Knights and the 3,000 member Mexican army mostly co-exist....since rules don't allow the army to investigate crimes...and only stop criminal activity directly before them.
     For citizens...it means lots of army patrols...and also increased alleged abuse by the military.
