The putative objective of all these illegal nonstate entities─taken together, the analytical commonality that directly links gangs, TCOs, and insurgents─is to neutralize, control, or depose governments to assure their own commercial or ideological expectations. In this connection, gangs and their various possible allies (the gang phenomenon) are attempting to ensure that they have maximum freedom of movement and action within and between “sovereign” national territories.< Less

Why was the elimination of this previously unknown saddle tramp given such high priority? Why was there no evidence of his death, no photographs and why were they in such a hurry to bury the body? Did Pat Garrett shoot the wrong man? All these tantalising questions and more are raised and answered here in this fictitious event which is set around hard facts.< Less
