6 Mexicans Tortured, With Hearts Cut Out

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Rescue personnel move drums which are being used to recover the remains of victims of drug violence from the ventilation shaft of a mine in Taxco June 2, 2010. According to local media, the remains of at least 15 people, showing gun shot wounds or signs of torture, have been recovered from the approximately 200 m deep shaft since operations began last Saturday after police began the search based on statements given by detainees. Authorities expect to recover at least the remains of 26 people.

Mexico: 6 bodies in cave, 3 with hearts cut out

Sun Jun 6, 2010

CANCUN, Mexico – Police discovered six dead bodies in a cavern near the tourist resort of Cancun on Sunday, three of them cut open and their hearts removed.

Authorities are investigating the identities of the four men and two women found dead in the natural cave, said Francisco Alor, the Quintana Roo state attorney general.

"They were apparently tortured and their chests were opened to remove the hearts," Alor’s office said later in a statement.

Three of the bodies had the letter "Z" carved on their abdomens — a possible reference to the Zeta drug gang, though officials did not make an explicit connection to cartel violence that has plagued many parts of Mexico.

More than 22,700 people have died nationwide in drug violence since late 2006, when President Felipe Calderon sent soldiers and federal police to battle the cartels

And since the possession of every form of recreational drug has been legalized.

Four Wounded in Attack on Mexican Police Chief

June 7, 2010

MEXICO CITY – Four police officers were wounded in an attack on Durango state Public Safety Secretary Gen. Valentin Romano, Mexican police spokesmen said.

The incident occurred Saturday near the Guadiana Tennis Club in the western section of Durango city, where the police chief was heading to play tennis, Public Safety Secretariat spokesmen said.

Romano was not hurt because he was traveling in an armored vehicle.

Gunmen opened fire at three other locations across the city to try to draw the security forces away so they could attack the general.

The attacks occurred outside a jail, at Guadiana Park and on Durango Boulevard, leaving two police officers wounded, the Durango state Attorney General’s Office said.

The gunmen fired hundreds of rounds from large-caliber weapons and threw hand grenades.

Army troops and Federal Police officers responded to the attacks and are patrolling the areas where they occurred.

The Sinaloa and Los Zetas drug cartels have been fighting for control of Durango state…

And yet, according to Mr. Calderon, it is still safer for “his people” to travel in Mexico than in Arizona.

    Hey, open border supporters…

    Tell me again why we should allow open borders?

    • proreason says:

      I’ll try:

      – open borders hasten the demise of white capitalism by overloading the welfare system
      – open borders provide marxists with an inexhaustable supply of reliable, bribable votes
      – open borders further undermine the rule of law, which further enables the overthrow of traditional US
      – open borders are a thumb in the eye of conservative Americans, which all by itself is a good thing
      – open borders provide a ready supply of supporters for the groups that want the Southwest to go back to Mexico
      – open borders enable infiltration of moose limb terrorists which just might destroy the US faster than slow growth of Marxism…ie., possibly in months instead of years
      – open borders pit the southwestern states agains the federal government, which also enables the destruction of the USA. This includes the formation of groupls to defend the border which can in turn be demonized by the left.
      – open border advocy is used by liberals to trick the country into thinking liberals “care”…..meanwhile
      – open borders provide a steady supply of malleable workers to cut liberals grass and bus their tables.

      All in all, open border advocy is the next best thing to accusing normal Americans of racism get the power to destroy the country and implement the new aristocracy.

      Silly me! Here I was thinking like one of those conservative patriotic Americans who actually loves America.

      Thanks Pro

      I wonder where all these useless idiots will live if they got their way?
      I wonder if they are going to be as vocal once the chaos they want takes place.

      I wonder how many are going to die at the hands of all those bad guys that waltz across the border.

      They are amazing in their stupidity aren’t they.

      Being somewhat normal, I always wonder what ticks in the brain of those who fight to allow someone to take what little freedom and peace away from them they might currently enjoy.

      sorry wrong spot

    They all think they’ll be safe in their little enclaves. That’s how the elites always think. I think it’s interesting if you study history, most times when a society is overthrown whether through violent or non-violent means, the biggest rabble-rousers and contributors are the ones who are taken out and shot first.

    • jobeth says:

      R of the P

      You’re right that the elite will always be secreted away in their enclaves. At least until someone more evil than them does them in and uses them for target practice…and on and on…in the progressive tradition.

      Its the “useful idiots” that can’t seem to find the brain cells to understand that by supporting these tyrants, they are doing themselves in, that boggles my mind.

      Just as soon as these yo-yos accomplish their goals…they are, as you said, the first in line to get theirs. And given theirs by more useful idiots who think it will be different for them.

      I guess it’s really important to re write history after all. That way there is no way to learn from experience. I guess.

    At least they weren’t hounded by officials trying to check their I.D.s!
    That would be inhuman!!!

    • JohnMG says:

      I guess you could say they didn’t have the heart for that type of work. Maybe they weren’t cut out for it. (sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)

    • Right of the People says:


      You’re pretty funny for a jarhead and I say that in the best way possible. Semper Fi!

    Maybe they are really murdered American tourists in Cancun & not Mexicans.
    Shouldn’t Obama or Hillary go to Mexico and look into this?

    >And since the possession of every form

    Legalization of possession only is a stupid and lazy way of (not) dealing with the issue. The issue is people like to use drugs. Alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, cannabis, and cocaine. The only sensible policy is to completely legalize possession of all drugs (not just alcohol and nicotine), and regulate their manufacture and distribution. Grow all of the coca and poppy here, and make them all available in their pure form just as we do with alcohol. This would instantly put these gangs in South American and Asia out of business, and create numerous jobs and new business.

    In the case of the US, we would stop over $40 billion a year from leaving the country and winding up in the hands of organized crime who commit the acts described above. Then the US could use the money it wastes ‘fighting’ drugs to continue killing Islamic terrorists in their own lands. And there would be more money to take the fight to more lands, such as Somalia and Yemen.

    It’s a radical idea but ask yourself…are you suddenly going to start smoking crack or injecting methamphetamine just because it were legal? Drug use should continue to be discouraged, and addiction should continue to be a scourge.

    But facts are facts…nearly all crime associated with illegal drugs stems from their illegal status. If one could buy crack from the same place they buy their 40 ounce malt liquor, gangs would not be able to operate criminal enterprises around the distribution of crack. After all, why would anyone buy crack from a gang member when they could just buy it from their local liquor store? Why would anyone want impure methamphetamine cooked in a trailer, when they could get the pure stuff from the same place they buy their bait and beer?

    Sounds good on paper Morning Glory, but you’re offering a gross oversimplification. I could tell you stories of people who never came back from recreational trips, so there’s a moral issue involved here, and a great human cost. And as we’re all fiscal conservatives here, we don’t take kindly to supporting the dopers, much less paying to clean up after them.
    My favorite oversimplification is to mow the bastards down, but until we have the will as a nation to run Predator strikes on the cartels that’s not going to happen. It is a proven strategy however. Possession in a death offense in Singapore, and would you believe they don’t have a drug problem? Funny how these things work out.

    • skclewis says:

      You are correct about Singapore except for one detail…the government and legal system actually have the gonads to carry out the punishment.

    >I could tell you stories of people who never came

    >issue involved here, and a great human cost.

    As stated before, alcohol kills more every year (directly) that cocaine, meth, heroin deaths combined. There is no debating this, it is a fact. This weekend, 3 college kids were killed in a drinking related accident in my town. I can’t remember the last time I heard of any cocaine or heroin overdose.

    So you can tell stories of dangerous ‘trips’ and I can point out till I’m blue in the face how many more alcohol kills. Why is using alcohol more moral than using cocaine or heroin? I don’t condone using any drugs, be it alcohol or nicotine or cocaine. All drugs are bad. But I don’t understand why using one dangerous drug is considered moral, yet others that kill far less per year are considered less moral.

    Remember, legalizing and allowing legal distribution doesn’t have to mean promoting a lifestyle of drug use. Drugs can and should continue to be demonized. Criminal penalties should be steep for public intoxication.

    >And as we’re all fiscal conservatives here……

    I’m a fiscal conservative as well. The US spends more than 16 billion a year ‘fighting’ the normal human desire to alter consciousness. In total, the United States is 40 years into its “War on Drugs” at a price tag of $1 trillion. U.S. drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, admits the campaign has been a failure. “In the grand scheme, it has not been successful,” he said. “Forty years later, the concern about drugs … is, if anything, magnified, intensified.”

    >we don’t take kindly to supporting the dopers,
    >much less paying to clean up after them.

    Where in my plan does anyone support dopers, or pay to clean up after them? I said legalize and regulate/tax their distribution. That means ‘dopers’ would pay for their drug in a store, just like an alcoholic does. Americans send over $40 billion a year out of the country into the hands of criminals. My plan would keep all of that money in the country, and because we would grow our own poppy and coca…it would put em all out of business for good.

    So for me it is also a moral issue. I cannot understand how it is moral for the government to condone two dangerous and addictive drugs (alcohol and nicotine) to be sold, but they criminalize other dangerous and addictive drugs that are proven to be less dangerous and addictive in the long run. All while wasting trillions fighting normal human behavior, and jailing otherwise law-abiding people.

    Conservatives (and I am one) have it right on nearly everything. Yet, most are so completely wrong on the drug issue, it is beyond me. It is so clear and plain as day what the solution is. All we need to do is look at the history of alcohol prohibition to see where we go next.
