Gunmen kill 11 from same family in Mexico


The area has been hit hard of late:

- Recent violence -


It is the latest murder to rock Puebla, a region that has been relatively spared the drug violence that has plagued other parts of Mexico.


In March, an undetermined number of human remains were found in various acid containers in a rural area.


In April, four bodies were found inside a burnt car near Veracruz, an eastern state beset by murders and disappearances linked to drug cartels. Two of the bodies belonged to sisters of a jailed Zetas drug cartel member, Veracruz authorities said.


That same day, three other bodies were found in the same area near a facility of state-run oil firm Pemex.


Late last month, four people died when gunmen linked to fuel thefts opened fire in the village of La Purisima, a region where rival gangs seek to control such illegal pipeline taps.


Puebla has also seen a spate of mob lynchings of crime suspects.

Speculation that there may have been a religious element or that it was a revenge attack linked to a rape.

The world is going crazy.

A lawless country.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Iguala_mass_kidnapping

"2014 Iguala mass kidnapping describes 43 male students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers' College who went missing in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico on September 26, 2014.

According to official reports, the students commandeered several buses to travel to Mexico City to commemorate the anniversary of the 1968 Tlatelolco Massacre. During the journey, local police intercepted them and a confrontation ensued. Details of what happened during and after the clash remain unclear, but the official investigation concluded that once the students were in custody, they were handed over to the local Guerreros Unidos ("United Warriors") crime syndicate and presumably killed."

Because the Florida situation is still active.
It's also because the failed war on drugs has meant drug gang killings and mass-killings are an everyday occurrence in Mexico. There is little interest because this is old news repeated again and again for the last decade.

Because that isn't the case in the USA at all :roll:

This racist Mexico-bashing thread is racist. Blaming Mexicans for Mexican violence is racist.

USA has a lot of spree killers. Not the same thing as narco-terrorists having gained near complete control of some parts of the country and eradicating whole families if the mood takes them with the help of so-called police or army in many cases.

So it isn't the case at all. In fact they are completely separate cases.

You could have just as easily subbed in the uSA in your original quote:

Are mass-killings of whole families or villages by drug gangs backed by corrupt law enforcement frequent in the USA? I don't see them reported much.

Nice Try Crumbs

Officials had previously raised the possibility the killings had religious overtones, because residents of the largely evangelical hamlet had previously had disputes with Catholics in a nearby community. But that now appears not to have played a role.


-better Luck next time [NOT] :p

That wasn't in the title. The point I am making is that one thread title grabbed way more attention than the other. I was just curious as to why. I would disagree with your point that killings are very often in mexico and that is the reason. In the USA there are many killings and huge media coverage everytime.
