Fighting Back in Ajijic

I have heard this story from several different people since it happened two nights ago. On the carretera near Colon, two men wearing masks tried to abduct two young Mexican men. They jumped out of their car and pointed a gun on them. The Mexicans all around descended on them, throwing rocks, attacking them and someone called the police. The police arrived almost immediately and took these two beaten up men into custody.  One of the Mexicans involved in attacking these two bad men said there were at least a dozen Mexicans fighting back. They are no longer going to stand by while their young men are kidnapped and killed.

I noticed that a lot of people were out and about last night, both in Ajijic and San Juan Cosala. What I have heard is that the Mexicans are fighting back. They aren't going to be terrorized. They are going to go out at night once again. I like this story.
