The El Paso Times reports on the mutilated bodies found yesterday in Juarez: the decapitated bodies of three men were found wearing only women's underwear. One of the men was a municipal policeman. The mutilated men appeared to have their ankles bound by tape and had on a bra and women's underwear. Police said two signs with threatening messages were left at the scene (

On the same story, El Diario reports (from unofficial sources) that the slogan written on the bodies of the victims said "this is for those who continue not believing..." This was the same message that appeared in early 2008 on the list of police officers killed or slated to be killed that appeared on the police memorial in the early days of the increased violence in the city. The bodies also were reported to have the heads of pigs and scorpions marked on them. The scorpion is a symbol long used to indicate the Juarez cartel ( Thanks to Molly Molloy for this.

In other Mexico there were 7 killings in Chihuahua, 5 each in Tamaulipas and Durango, 1 in Michoacán, 3 in Cuilicán as well as 3 in Mazatlán, Sinaloa one of whom was a US resident, Gregorio Gámez Aispuro.

Yesterday afternoon a Federal Police convoy, in Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán, was attacked by gunmen that left 1 police officer and 2 civilians wounded.

There was 22 killings added to the total which is now at 3976 (4976) for the year.

  1. Since Walters and Leonhart consider violence and deaths a victory, they should probably go to Mexico and throw a big party! They should go to all those funerals and congratulate them for winning so much. They should meet with all the orphans, widows, and widowers and gush praise on them that their loved ones died because of the benefits of increased violence.

    We may not have gone from bad to worse with Obama; call me cynical, but even with the reforms he's overseen, I can't bring myself to say, "hooray, the glass is 3% full," especially when there's still a huge black hole in it, sucking people's lives away: Southern, Central, AND Northern Americans, let alone the rest of the world.

  2. The horrible thing is that Americans will only truly start caring when there are high-profile Americans captured by drug cartels.
