BREITBART – ROBERT ARCE
Brutal drug cartel beheadings continue throughout parts of southern Mexico as rival criminal organizations fight over lucrative territories, spreading terror and bloodshed.
The escalation of violent acts such as forced videotaped confessions of captured rivals with subsequent beheading and other mutilations is comparable to the terror tactics used by ISIS propaganda.
Most cartel confessions and beheadings follow a similar script where the captured victim is placed in front of a camera with several rival cartel members dressed in military gear with their faces covered, standing guard. There is usually one interrogator who forcefully asks basic questions such as, “how long have you been working,” and for whom. They are also asked for names of bosses and if they are colluding with police, military, or other officials.
