23 seconds of the Mexican drug war-(Full video murder EXPLICIT GRAPHIC)
latimes ^ | 12/7/08 | By Sam Quinones

Posted on 12/06/2008 11:06:45 AM PST by Flavius

Reporting from Monterrey, Mexico -- In the seconds before the gunmen burst into the tiny Lozano Garza jewelry store in this city's downtown, three shoppers browsed the display cases.

An unarmed security guard sat by the door.

And remember - Mexico is a gun banner's wet dream. Their citizens can not legally own a weapon or even posses ammo.

It's already here.

There has been a spte of home invasions by armed gangs of Mexicans in Phoenix this year, some of the gangs were dressed in stolen police SWAT gear and using automatic weapons.

Excellent point. I was watching NatGeo this past week and they had two documentaries about heroin and meth. It’s sickening to watch these people put this poison into their bodies. Much of the heroin is coming from Afghanistan and some of that money gets in the hands of the Taliban. They said much of the meth is coming up from Mexico now. We are killing ourselves in the Western world and paying these evil people to supply the poison.

I wished I had not watched. I will always remember this epsiode. It makes me ill and scared as all get out. They had no chance. None. Unless they had automatic weapons to shoot back and even then probably had no time to react.

One must wonder how many LA Slimes employees are drug users.

They portray and present what they are responsible for.

Yep, even if the guard had been armed, it may not have mattered much. They were shooting before they had even cleared the door. No one even saw it coming. I mean, it looked like all of them got mowed down within 3 or 4 seconds. I would think you would have to have multiple guards on a war footing to defend against something like that.

Nice, shooting women in the back.

I’m guessing it’s illegal for law abiding citizens to own guns?

Agreed, but better to be informed and thus able to be prepared, than to believe it can't happen to you, or yours.


Check out the gang activity pages in your state. There are over 12,000 gang members in Colorado, that they admit to.

Know Gangs


Stay safe.

Agreed. I used to think that way, as it seemed logical.

However, Cell phones, sneakers, iPods, etc are all legal and freely available, but people (especially in UK) get shot or stabbed to death on the streets regularly by somebody that doesn't want to pay for one.

How many sanctuary cities are begging for a bailout? Illegal thugs and killers come and go from these places. The taxpayers cannot handle the load for education and health care. It is time to deny these 80 cities any federal funds as long as they break the law and put every American at risk.

Why was the guard ‘unarmed’? Crazy... if he had a gun it’s possible that he could have shot the 2nd creep into the store. Who knows what might have happened after that...

One of the stories on that page is ‘Drunk driver slams into cop car’.

I saw that happen in the late Eighties in I-680 just south of San Ramon. My ex and I were coming home from her parent’s house one night, and saw a burning CHP unit on the side of the road. Another CHP unit was there- I think the officer was trying to keep the injured one going until the EMTs got there. I laid out a flare pattern and lent some blankets at the officer’s request. The assisting officer and I talked it over and agreed that the fire wasn’t going to get any worse, and was providing heat and light, so I didn’t get my extinguisher out.

My ex called the hospital and found that the injured officer was going to be OK, never heard anything else about it. I still wonder how it played out in the end. The cop who was down didn’t look like he was doing so well when we got there.

I used to work for a company that sent us to Monterrey occasionally to upgrade our test systems. It’s actually a nice town. Thankfully I don’t work for them any more. I would probably refuse to go there again after seeing this.

The article said those shot included a police commander and his wife. I'm thinking it wasn't a robbery of the jewelry store, it was a hit on the commander and wife.

Talk about lousy muzzle control! Swept his lead right out of the gate.

“Highly trained Mexican Commandos” (Zetas) my backside.

Looked like full auto AK47/variant. And slime number 2 punching the guard twice with his pistol as they exited...

Wanna bet wounded shooter never made it to the escape car?

No physical security either.

Wonder what the beef was all about?

Traffic was pretty sparse, and I was counting on lightning not striking twice in the same place, so to speak. I think anyone on this board would have done the same. I just wish I could’ve done more to help.

In one of the slew of brilliant things I’ve done in my life being in unarmed target or guardvin a bank was one of my more brilliant moves.

Especially after one happy customer informed me to get a gun for tommorrow because he’s going to come back

"About 4000 have died in Mexico's drug war this year - about as many deaths as U.S. forces gave suffered in the Iraq War since it began in 2003."

Horrific incident.

Some liberals who are against the efforts of those America military heroes who choose to defend their country (whining about bringing them home, i.e., cutting & running so the US loses the war) are the same anti-American loudmouths who support illegal immigration. Just more 'Rat voters, ignorant of what made this country great, while at the same time flooding America with their culture.

The killers left the jewelry. Nor did they touch the cash register. They paid no heed to the three video cameras that recorded the entire scene.

Lying dead that afternoon of March 14, 2007, were an off-duty police commander and his wife, Benjamin Espinosa and Griselda Melendez,....


Sorry...this brutal mass murder was the result of the ILLEGALITY of drugs. If drugs were legal, or at the very least decriminalized, the drug cartels that perpetrated this crime would likely not exist.
