“Tepito” in Mexico City – arguably the most dangerous black market in the world. At first glance, the no-go zone looks like any other market – yet the main thing you’ll find lurking down the alleyways behind it is death. It’s ruled by the “La Union” gang. The Tepito cartel deals in drugs, weapons and assassinations – anything that you can use money to buy.
The gang plays cat and mouse with the special units. And anyone caught in the crossfire is risking their life. Residents also call the area “Barrio Bravo” – the wild neighborhood.
Estimates suggest that around eight kilos of cocaine and half a ton of marijuana are sold in the alleyways of the no-go zone of Tepito every weekend. It is a place where people pay up to fourteen thousand euros to hitmen for a single yet fatal bullet. A silent knife attack. Or a blast from a shotgun.
The normal police force is barely able to keep the situation under control. According to statistics, Mexico City alone is short of over ten thousand officers. So, in their fight to stop the gangs, the authorities rely primarily on a special unit. Consisting of four hundred men in total, the troop is ready for action around the clock. And the gang members are prepared to kill anybody who might ruin their business.
Tepito – a place that doesn’t play by society’s rules. Where the powerful “La Union” gang rules. And people die on a daily basis. It’s a daunting, deadly no-go zone!
