Some people call it a Drug war. I call it a Civil war. Seriously. Think about it. How many people have been killed? How many have been beheaded? Heads found in the middle of the desert? There are parts of the country that you can’t even go to, parts of Mexico that a dog wouldn’t even want to hang out with. And now, what? Hanging off a bridge? With no fingers? No head? Huh? What? What time is it?
The bodies of the four young men were discovered early on Sunday, hung upside down by their feet from a bridge near a wealthy area of Cuernavaca, a leafy city about an hour outside Mexico City, where many of the nation’s elite own homes.
The victims’ genitals, index fingers and heads had been cut off, according to a statement from the attorney general’s office in Morelos state, which includes Cuernavaca. Their heads and genitals were found nearby, along with a handmade sign, the statement said. “This will happen to everyone that helps the traitor Edgar Valdes,” the placard read, referring to a leading drug capo whose real name is Edgar Valdez. It was signed C.P.S., the initials for the South Pacific Cartel, a relatively new drug gang that has claimed responsibility for other gruesome killings.
Did they cut off their balls before or after they were dead? I joke because, if I don’t joke, I’ll start crying. Americans need to realize that we are the cause of most of this violence. Our addiction to Cocaine is fueling every death. Until we become responsible and act responsible, this isn’t going to end.
