Members of the Sinaloa and Los Zetas cartels managed to resolve their issues in a group therapy session yesterday, putting an end to years of protracted drug violence.
The warring drug cartels, who had been killing each other over turf and drug distribution, managed to put aside their differences and seek help from a professional. Mexican psychiatrist Dr. Felipe Sanchez, who was recently kidnapped and released, said the drug cartels had a lot of “bad blood” between them which had been caused by nothing more than “bad communication” and could only be resolved through “talk therapy” and “expressing their emotions.”
“The key to resolving any problem is talking,” Dr. Sanchez said. “These are all reasonable and hardworking men who have been living in an unhealthy environment. Their jobs are so stressful that they tend to react poorly in situations involving high amounts of stress,” added the psychiatrist, who had recently been beaten.
Mr. Sanchez also stated that it usually takes up to 15 sessions of cognitive behavioral couples therapy to see some clear improvement in his patients’ relationships, but under the circumstances, in which he and his family were held as captives at an undisclosed location, where he was chained to a radiator in an abandoned warehouse God only knows where, the therapy had to work in less than two 45 minute sessions.
Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, leader of the Los Zetas cartel, said that from now on if he has any problem with the rival gang, he will first try talking to them about it before stuffing anyone in oil barrels and lighting them on fire.
