Recently, a new method of marking territory has crossed over into the United States. "Rape trees" are popping up in Southern Arizona and their significance is horrific and disgusting. These "rape trees" are places where cartel members and coyotes rape female border crossers and hang their clothes, specifically undergarments, to mark their conquest and territory.

At least, that's my opinion. I'm as socially progressive as they come, in some areas, but not when it comes to thugs and rapists. I repeat - kill them all.
There is a new kind of tree growing out west. Botanists have yet to decide how to classify it. Politicians and the major media seem to want to ignore it. The sight of one is enough to make weathered old cowboys who thought they'd seen everything in life break down and cry. Not many people have seen these trees, for they grow in out of the way places in the southwest desert along the border with Mexico. But those who have seen them are haunted by the memory. In an era of free trade agreements and politically correct euphemisms for "illegal aliens" they represent a new Mexican export to the United States. They are called "rape trees" and they bear a strange kind of fruit.

I'm a very strong proponent of the death penalty for rapists, murderers, and child molesters. Kill them all - the state has to do it, otherwise concerned citizens will. The whole reason the death penalty exists, and should exist, I think, is to mitigate vigilantism.
Mexico is currently very unstable, and that situation threatens the national security of the US. We'd be doing Mexico and Mexicans a huge favor if our government started dealing with the smugglers and the cartels (one and the same) in Draconian fashion.

I must say, having read that, it immediatelyrang out as BS.
Remember the stories of Iraqi soldiers tossing infants in the air and catching them on bayonets?
Seems the same stories were spread about the Nazis back in the day, as well.
There has never been any solid evidence of this occurring, and I suspect the same of the rape trees.
I may be wrong, and if I am, than I'm right there with WyredOne, btw.

These stories about "rape-trees" are nothing more than certain people trying to paint immigrants in a negative light, and doing a fine job judging by the responses in this thread.
....As you can see, unfounded fear-mongering.
