There have been 70,000 people killed in Mexico in the past 7 years due to activity related to the Drug Cartels. Of course, 70,000 people would comprise a sizable American city, and now those people are gone due to the lax enforcement of American Drug laws that have made the drug trade even more lucrative. But it seems the citizenry is also fighting back with Punisher-style tactics. I don’t know whether to applaud or be horrified.
From the DailyMail here:
These shocking photos show how the bodies of seven men were found on plastic chairs in Mexico having been shot in the head, with threat messages nailed to some of their chests using ice picks.
A placard on one of the bodies, which were found early yesterday morning in Uruapan, Michoacan state, said: ‘Warning! This will happen to thieves, kidnappers, sex offenders and extortionists.’
Seven bodies had bullet wounds and had been placed individually in the sitting position in chairs near a roundabout.
Some of the bodies had their hands and feet bound, outside a Pepsi bottling plant. The men were believed to have been aged from 15 to 40. The bodies were found at 05:30 local time.
Someone has had enough down in Mexico. And they are taking out the trash. So the next time you think that smoking a little pot is a victimless crime, remember these men wearing the ice pick neckties. They worked hard to get that pot to America and paid for it with their lives.
