Another day in Paradise

Another day another chilling scene from the continuing Mexican Drug Wars.

And Mrs. Man o' Law wants to go to the Mexican Riviera for vacation and wonders why I won't. 

Drug gangs resort to horrific killings
By Dudley Althaus and Dane Schiller - Houston Chronicle

Gangland killers hanged nine people side-by-side from an overpass at a busy interchange in Nuevo Laredo on Friday and stuffed 14 decapitated bodies into a minivan left in the heart of the busiest trade route on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“This is how I am going to finish off all the fools you send to heat up the plaza,” read a banner on the overpass addressed to the Gulf cartel, which is waging war with the Zetas gang that controls the city. “We'll see you around, you bunch of parasites.”

It was not immediately clear if the killers who hanged the five men and four women early Friday also decapitated the 14 other victims. Some of those hanged were bloodied and battered and appeared to have been tortured.
