MONTERREY Mexico (Reuters) - Mexican security forces found the body of a slain mayor near Mexico's affluent city of Monterrey on Wednesday, days after he was abducted by drug hitmen, officials and local media said.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon, in a posting on his Twitter account, said he was sorry about the "cowardly assassination" of Mayor Edelmiro Cavazos, the mayor of a popular tourist town on the outskirts of Monterrey, a major industrial center with close U.S. business links.

"The murder of Edelmiro is an outrage and forces us to redouble our efforts to fight these cowardly criminals," Calderon wrote.

Monterrey-based daily El Norte and local TV networks said Cavazos was found bound and dumped on a rural road.

Wonderful country we are importing to the US. Maybe when there is enough Mexican culture here to make killing elected officials a national sport, our scummy politicians might rethink their Mexifacation agenda.

They only kill the non-corrupt ones for the most part. So libs (notice I didn’t use the superfluous ‘corrupt libs’) who played along with them would be perfectly safe.

Why is it that the WOD is so rarely mentioned in discussions regarding border control these days?

Because it's so racist, and is considered illegal 'profiling'.

Because common sense and logic are largely dead in the US.

Am I really the only one who thinks "twittering" is somewhat of an inappropriate way to show your sorrow about a brutal murder?

Or am I starting to get old at 46?

I was hoping this wouldn’t be the outcome; but like watching the global jihad — your gut already tells you the outcome.

Thank you for the ping SwinneySwitch.
