WARNING: This story contains material that some viewers may find disturbing due to its graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

The title says it all. I will interject, the parents were working for a well known and popular drug dealer. Although as graphic as the image (s) are, they may all still be among the living, had they chosen a different livelihood. ... . But the question is, could they, given the deck of cards they were delt?

Mexico will continue to deteriorate, the drug lords are growing each day. Sadly. I'm thankful to be in a country where it is not 'that bad'..... yet..


Is it possible to imagine anything more unjust than the cold-blooded murder of a family carrying a baby in their arms?” Martínez asks readers.



The picture of a 7-month-old baby lying dead on a sidewalk between his parents has caused fury in Mexico. The picture shows the family of three moments after they were shot to death outside a convenience store in the city of Pinotepa Nacional in Oaxaca state, according to the Oaxaca State Attorney’s Office.

Several armed men shot and killed the family, authorities said. Oaxaca prosecutors told CNN the father, identified as 24-year-old Juan Alberto Pano Ramos, was carrying Marcos Miguel Pano Colón in his arms when they were shot Friday at 8:40 pm. The 17-year-old mother, identified as Alba Isabel Colón, also was killed.

The picture focusing on the baby in a bloodstained white onesie, lying head down between his father’s torso and left arm, has gone viral in Mexico. The young mother, wearing denim shorts and a red blouse, lies in the background.

I have had many Mexican friends and used to cross the border for shopping and medical check-ups and the cheap prescription drugs... Even my Mexican friends have stopped going !!.

I feel sorry for the Mexican population who have to put up with their failed corrupt government.. Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, you name it where the cartels have infiltrated people die.

Some days I can only sit and think what a sick world we are in. These bastard drug addled minds hyped up on testosterone causing mayhem and death, not just in this case, but worldwide have made this planet I used to love so dearly into hopeless ball of sickness drifting in space for which perhaps the only fitting end would be falling into a black hole.

It was a baby. A baby. Sickening.

And even with the rightful indignation, nothing will change.
I doubt the people that carried out the shooting are the types to get caught up in the moral implications of their actions.
the baby was doomed either way: die as a child, or grow up to be in the same business/ reality as your parents and get killed as an adult, or be the one that does the killing.
It's saddening.
I'd love to say "i hope they catch the guys who did this" but that doesn't really solve the problem, i fear it's beyond repair.

Collateral damage, the most unfeeling and inhuman term one could imagine, other than those coined in Nazi Germany to describe those they believed to be lesser beings than themselves.

It is horrific, disturbing, and achingly sad.

maybe im missing it but it looks like there is zero source to this thread, found it easily enough upon googling www.cnn.com...
but to the posters above i do hope you also sought out a source before imparting your emotions? or are you so easily fooled that you dont verify what people post?

in this case the posters story is legit but next time you may not be so lucky.

I understand the outrage, but...


This is what happens when you conduct business with bad people. They don't leave witnesses. These are cold blooded killers they don't care how old the witness is.

The cartel problem in Mexico is one of...no cartel control. That may seem like an oxymoron but since the Sinaloans and the Gulf lost control of their plazas with the rise of the Zetas and others like la Nueva Familia there are no alliances that actually hold, and the end result is widespread murder where the average person is just as much a target as the drug dealers and the gang members.

The idea that the drug lords are growing though...that isn't true, for the reasons I have just stated. No one gets to the top anymore, it is a shooting gallery.

Terrible story and sadly just one more of literally thousands.

Here is a blog that keeps up to date with the cartels, it makes horrifying reading. Even more so when you delve into the forums, where you can find some incredibly well documented reports of the history of the cartels and the violence.

A baby is not a witness... That is like killing a dog what saw you rob a bank.

Not, that a baby is the same as a dog.

But this idea of killing women and children is nothing new. My countrymen slaughtered men, women, and children all the same, like they was sheep. They wanted to not only fight the enemy, but erase the enemy.

It is terrible, but it sends a very powerful message.

The really sad part in here, is that these people was killed for drug fights and money arguments. Nobody should die for that. (in a perfect world)

These cartels are as bad as ISIS, complete with beheadings and all. It is time to liberate the country with American Marines, Special forces, and Air power. Its our backyard man, lets do it. Then we can lock the Southern Mexican border down like the Israelis and destroy anything trying to cross illegally there, after turning Mexico into 51 officially.

Some of the cartels have gotten training from Terror organizations. Hamas especially ied and car bombing are common.

Yea as to the age gap and the mother being so young -- Not cool but also not surprising.

Because in many places in Mexico the girls are dropping babies at 14.. If she were actually married she was one of the luckier ones except for the whole dying part.. I knew a girl that had 3 kids before she was 20 and her oldest was 7.. !

Usually the mom takes care of the babies while the young go to school or work.. I think the last baby she had she gave to her mother, why... because mom wanted a new baby.. Whatever, their system must work for there are allot of Mexicans and South Americans..

American/western yard sticks for proper life styles do not work in many places of the world; right or wrong.

Seems all the governments are corrupt.

On Eve of South Carolina Vote, Nation’s ICE Officers Detail How Marco Rubio Betrayed Them

BNN: In your letter, you specifically protested that the bill would legalize gang members. As an ICE officer, how do you feel that this provision was left in the bill?

CRANE: It disgusts me. Violent street gangs were literally able to lobby Sen. Rubio and the Gang of Eight more effectively than law enforcement, they had more influence on the bill than we did. Gangs were able to get provisions in the law to protect themselves. It’s absolutely insane. What on earth are our lawmakers thinking? I think it’s this type of utterly stupid lawmaking that has caused most Americans to lose faith in Congress.

Not at all. The solution is to acknowledge that the Federal Government does not have and never had the Constitutional authority to criminalize any drugs (other than alcohol, but that authority was later revoked), abolish all pretense at having drugs outlawed, enact sensible regulations controlling access by minors (ala alcohol and tobacco), and watch all of the powerful drug cartels wither and die.
