Mexico vigilantes take law into own hands

After living in fear for years, Mexican communities are no longer afraid to fight back against drug cartels.

    Last year, Mexicans voted for a leader to end the war with the drug cartels.

    But under President Enrique Pena Nieto, the violence has become worse.

    Polls suggest that Mexicans are becoming disenchanted with their president.

    Now some communities are defying the government and taking the fight into their own hands.
