According to the U.S. Attorneys Office, the agents of the Gulf cartel claimed to be a police officer and handcuffed the man. The victims wife thought police had taken her husband, but when she called the local Texas authorities, she discovered that they had not arrested her husband.
The U.S. Attorneys Office says the victim was beaten, blindfolded, gagged, and bound in duct tape. He was taken by the agents of the Gulf cartel to a nearby ranch on U.S. soil. Only then, say authorities, did the kidnappers realize they had taken an innocent man and that the victim was not the person they were seeking.
Authorities say the agents of the Gulf cartel decided to sneak him across the porous border and cross the Rio Grande river. U.S. authorities claim agents of the Gulf cartel allegedly murdered the man in Mexico, despite his innocence in the matter.

Andy Taylor on the Coercive Power of the State
Andy Taylor? Readers with long memories may remember that he is the character played by Andy Griffith in the long-running eponymous television show from the Sixties (the good bit of the Sixties). As sheriff of the town of Mayberry, Andy is responsible for maintaining order no, thats not quite right: the townspeople are responsible for maintaining order. Andy is simply a sort of boundary marker. He represents what Walter Bagehot might have called the impressive side of the social contract. He has a sidearm. He rarely wears it. Its usually at home, unloaded, hidden on top of a china cabinet. He barely wears a uniform. Thats to say, his uniform is homey, not scary.
Why? Because he wished people to trust and respect him and not fear him; he was an authority, not an authoritarian figure. His sidekick, the lovable but bumbling Barney Fife, likes the paraphernalia of police garb. Andy lets him wear a revolver, but it has to be unloaded. Hes allowed to carry one round of ammunition in his shirt pocket.
Remembering the Alamo.
Just kidnapping the people that Americans can’t be bothered to kidnap.
Yeah, if they got him out of there without breaking any door jambs or shooting the dogs!!
***** “He should have suspected they were fake cops when they treated him courteously and with respect.

And didn’t shoot his Dog.
