I never been to Mexico, so I have no clue as to what’s really going on south of the border, but sensational stories are always suspect.
Jim Stone who lives in Mexico has this to say:
I am skeptical of the story line with the recent cartel killings in Mexico
The story line is that a bunch of women and children were going to a wedding and got killed on the way there by a drug cartel, and there’s nothing more to the story at all. I call B.S.
First of all, the cartels are not stupid. If they attacked like this, it is because they got more than one cell phone bugged with a tracker and they only do that to their enemies. This story is not as simple as stated, because the vehicles were burned rather than taken, which means it really was a cartel and not thugs and cartels don’t do crap like this unless it is against a competitor.
My guess is that there is a back story that goes something like this:
The husbands or any men associated with the women or children killed were doing deals their wives were clueless about, and to send a message, the cartels took what they could. If that happened to be women and children and burned out cars, it was only because that’s ALL THEY COULD DO. The cartels did this via tracking bugs, there are LOTS of whites in Mexico, and lots of American plates in Mexico, why was it this group that got taken out? Answer: Because they had the tracking bug, which was put there for a reason. No other way out of this, cartels don’t bother with ordinary people and if this was anything other than what I stated, everyone would have been taken alive and handed back for a ransom.
GUARANTEE: The group was “women and children only” because the men knew it was best to not go along, and doubted the cartels would get this nasty. As far as I see it, CASE CLOSED.
