Warning: People of Caborca, Altar and Pitiquito. This is the second and last warning. We
tried to be at peace after we were offered a peace agreement.
But a few days later that arrangement wasn’t respected. We repeat, this war is not against you: Mexican Army, National Guard, Federal Police, State Police, and Municipal Police. This war will continue against the people of Altar. And this will not stop. For all those who collaborate with the people from Altar : Leave town before we come for you. Each of you is on our blacklist! We don’t want any taxi or public service transportation coming from Altar to Caborca. We don’t want anyone coming to do money movements in the Coppel stores either. We have everything well monitored. Sincerely, La Barredora At the command 24/7
Video translation is as follows:
Captive: I already told you fools the truth. Don’t be cruel. Please.
Sicario: So, there you were faggot with the people from Altar.
Captive: Please sir. (After having been lit on fire he’s begging for his life) Sicario: So, there you were with those from Altar you piece of #.
WARNING video is of burning a man alive
Exercise increased caution in Mexico due to crime and kidnapping. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.
Violent crime – such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery – is widespread.
The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico, as travel by U.S. government employees to certain areas is prohibited or significantly restricted.
U.S. government employees may not travel between cities after dark, may not hail taxis on the street, and must rely on dispatched vehicles, including from app-based services like Uber or from regulated taxi stands. U.S. government employees may not drive from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior parts of Mexico, with the exception of daytime travel within Baja California, between Nogales and Hermosillo on Mexican Federal Highway 15D, and between Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey on Highway 85D.
“Three strange things in the world:
loving war more than peace,
loving excess more than sufficiency,
and loving falsehood more than truth.”
Jojutla, Mexico: The recruits filed into a clearing, where a group of trainers with the stern bearing of drill sergeants stood in a tight row, hiding something.
“How many of you have killed someone before?” one of the instructors asked. A few hands shot up.
The trainers separated, revealing a naked corpse face up in the grass. One thrust a machete into the nearest man’s hand. “Dismember that body,” he ordered.
The recruit froze. The instructor waited, then walked up behind the terrified recruit and fired a bullet into his head, killing him. Next, he passed the blade to a lanky teenager while the others watched, dumbfounded. This is an anonymous account of his experiences.
