In this Sept. 18, 2012 photo, people watch firefighters put out a smoldering car allegedly used in a robbery at a Coca-Cola distribution center in Morelia, Mexico. The robbers pistol-whipped three security guards, grabbed thousands of pesos in cash and fled. In cities and towns across Mexico, a nearly six-year offensive against drug cartels has been accompanied by a surge in common crime: assaults and robberies that grab no headlines but make life miserable for ordinary citizens.
