I think it's misplaced anger and frustration at their powerlessness to change things. Understandable to be frustrated but it's hardly the naīve vacationers fault.

I certainly don't blame vacationers- I would likely just pay the 'fine' and GTFO, myself. Part of the reason why I don't ever rent cars in Mexico, I don't want the hassle of having to worry about parking, accidents, being pulled over, Pemex scams, etc.
I hear you on that, after 54 trips, not once ever rented a car. For the same reasons you listed.
