APTOPIX Mexico Oil Rustlers

In this Sept. 5, 2014 photo, an armored truck riddled with bullet holes sits at a military base in Ciudad Mier, in Tamaulipas state, Mexico. The military says they confiscate vehicles that are abandoned by their drivers after armed fights among cartels or with the military, so that gangs cannot reuse vehicles parts. “The energy reform won’t be viable if we aren’t successful … in solving the problem of crime and impunity,” said Mexican Senator David Penchyna, who heads the Senate Energy Commission. “The biggest challenge we Mexicans have, and I say it without shame, is Tamaulipas.” (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)
