    In Colombia and Brazil they have paramilitaries, ex military, cops , law abiding citizens who had enough, took matters in their own hands and started killing every drug dealer and junkie in their neighborhood this pacifying it. Philippines under Rodrigo Duterte has done this too on a a national level. The murder rate went up but crime dropped 80% ….
