    What happens when the government isn't able to provide adequate police protection, or when the protection they do provide is rife with corruption?
    Then the private sector takes over. For-profit businesses that provide armed security.
    We're talking everywhere, to drive children on a bus safely to school or to guard a truck full of Coca-Cola. The crime in many parts of Mexico is that bad.

    This is a really good article, I suggest you read it.
