Reporting from San Diego -- A U.S. citizen was one of the three men who were found decapitated this week in Tijuana, Mexican authorities said Friday.

The body of George Harrison, a 38-year-old former Chula Vista resident, had been dismembered and mutilated and was dumped in a vacant lot near Tijuana's beachside bullring.

Harrison had several drug-related convictions in the United States and was suspected of drug trafficking in Mexico, Baja California Assistant Atty. General Rafael Gonzalez said.

“Gonzalez said Harrison had been living in the Tijuana area since his release from a U.S. prison six months ago. He owned a pizzeria in Tijuana, from which he was abducted, Gonzalez said.”

We have a friend who contracts with the military out of San Diego. Several of his co workers are US Citizens but live in Mexico with their Mexican wives. He insists this kind of thing just doesn’t happen in TJ.

Another useful idiot.

SNIPPET from the link at post no.1:

"Another of the three beheading victims was identified as Luis Garcia Aispuro, who had a criminal history in the Mexican state of Sonora, Mexican authorities said. The third man was identified as Jaime Ramos Herrera of Colima, Mexico."

The guy was playing with fire - you roll around in the dirt, you are gonna get dirty.

Sad to say but this atrocity probably ended up saving the US taxpayer some money.

What annoys me, is that Channel 8 news doesn’t mention a word about this jerk being in competition with the cartels. He got what he deserved! The news makes it look like he’s an innocent victim.
The US media is on a comprehensive campaign of lies and bullshit in an effort to keep tourist dollars in San Diego. It’s too bad that all the media outlets in the US work together and we don’t get any honest counterpoint.
