Four people were killed in Mexico earlier this week when a dispute between two families over a pothole in the road turned deadly. The incident occurred in the town of Banelos when one family closed off a road in order to fill in a hole in the road that had been caused by heavy rains. Another family took exception to this because they ran a delivery business and they needed the road to be open so that they could get their truck through. It did not take long for the dispute to escalate from words, to insults to guns being drawn and fired. Sadly, in this region of Mexico gunfights are not uncommon.
