Mexican government seems to favor Sinaloa cartel

An NPR News investigation has found strong evidence of collusion between elements of the Mexican army and the Sinaloa cartel in the violent border city of Juarez. In an effort to find out whether federal forces are favoring the Sinaloa cartel, NPR analyzed thousands of news releases on the federal attorney general's website announcing arrests for organized crime, weapons and drug offenses. The analysis showed that the Mexican government crackdown has not hit the Sinaloans as hard as it has other cartels.
