Nuevo Laredo newspaper editor decapitated
KGBT ^ | September 25, 2011

Posted on 09/25/2011 10:07:25 AM PDT by SwinneySwitch

Authorities have confirmed the murder of a Nuevo Laredo newspaper editor whose body decapitated and left with a message not to use social media to report about drug cartels.

It all happened in the Colonia Madero of Nuevo Laredo around 7:45 a.m. Saturday.

According to reports, a woman's body was next to a statue of Christopher Columbus with a message not to use social media to report about drug cartel violence.

The Tamaulipas Attorney General's Office (PGJE) identified the woman's body as 39-year-old Maria Elizabeth Macias-Castro, the editor of Nuevo Laredo's Primera Hora newspaper.

Macias-Castro is the third person in Nuevo Laredo to be murdered and left with a message not to use blogs or social media to report about drug cartels.

The mutilated bodies of two other people were left with a similar message two weeks ago.

Macias-Castro is also among three media professionals to have been killed in Nuevo Laredo in the past three years.

PGJE officials are promising a thorough investigation to find those responsible for Macias-Castro's death.

"The state government expresses it's condolences to family members and loved ones affected by these lamentable acts," PGJE officials said in a statement released Saturday night.

These cartel monsters are the very essence of evil.

God be with the soul of this brave girl, and please console all those who loved her.

Just saw a posting where two “enemies” of the drug cartel were decapitated by chainsaw. It’s coming to the US very, very soon. Muslims, Mexicans, and Obama voters.

These guys are going to be a drag on our society if we don’t educate them.

I don’t want to be heartless, guys, come on.

See, Janet was right. All this violence it waaaaay over on the Mexican side of the border. Yep, a whole half a mile. Thank goodness for that imaginary line on the map.

Makes you wonder if the ATF threw in some edged weapons as good customer bonuses...

God be with the soul of this brave girl, and please console all those who loved her.

Amen.

It’s time Texas went all heartless on Perry. We’ve been educating them and they’ve dragged Texas schools down, down, down.

Yep, the enemy isn’t even knocking on our door anymore.

If a cancer is left to grow it will kill you.

These drug pushers are a cancer on mankind.

Climate change doesn’t come close to these evil people, yet
there is NO ONE addressing this cancer like they do CG.

You want to see people get behind a much needed cause?
Start with an ARMY and wipe out the drug cartels.

On the Texas - Mexico border slightly SW of San Antonio, TX. But Hey! our borders are safer than they have ever been.....Chief Justice Judge Roslyn O. Silver just gave Luis Nevarez-Meneses, Mexican drug cartel king-pin, 12.5 years for "possession" of drugs and more than a million dollars in his stash house. (Avondale, Az.). Such a lenient sentence for this crime....life with no chance for parole would have been more like it or better yet the death sentence with no appeals forthcoming. This nation needs to legislate some new laws concerning those who deal in drugs....Upon conviction, the death sentence with no appeals.

oh, just legalize drugs

more competition will come in and drive down prices, more of the custioemr base will just die, and these cartels will find new jobs or clean up and become another Coca Cola or Kraft Foods

I’m sure that this wouldn’t have happened if greedy American Machete Dealers would quit exporting their instruments of death to our peaceful friends in Mexico.

President 0bama must close the Knife Show loophole too, by Executive Order, if Congress won’t enact legislation to do so immediately..

Yesterday I watched a video of two men being decapitated in Mexico. One with a chainsaw, one with a knife. Not as easy as you’d think. Took some time. Not easy to watch either.

If you outlaw guns only the outlaws will have guns -- happily provided for by the Obama administration.

Oh, there was more than guns involved, some real goodies went South by way of New Mexico. When you’re buying a dozen or more AKs or ARs at a time, why not try to get a few blades thrown in with the deal?

While I don't think legalization is the answer, perhaps a greater effort toward eliminating cartel traffic (instead of putting up signs warning Americans to keep out of smuggling pathways) might be a more effective focus than kicking down grannies' doors at 4AM and shooting the dog (if not granny).

The misapplication of both strategic and tactical assets has virtually guaranteed the steady flow of drugs in quantity despite the efforts of some, the reticence at closing off the border makes me wonder who is getting a cut of the action, and in the meantime, our 4th Amendment Rights have been flushed down the toilet.

I'd say that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is bad enough, but the loss of our Right to be secure in our person, property, and effects far outshadows the results in interdicting drugs--and I'm about as anti-drug as it gets.

The local rag had the gall to reprint an essay by some 16 year old (who described herself as an undocumented student, apparently without irony intended) demanding the usual smorgasbord of goodies.

Nowhere in the piece did “I shouldn’t be in this country” appear, of course.

Does anyone else find it ironic that an American born and raised 10 miles over the Oregon border is entitled to less of a break from the California university system than a Mexican national who has already broken the law by entering the state and/or overstaying a visa?

Thanks, but I didn't expect all that, I was just hinting at Al Qaeda terrorists sneaking across the open Southern Border.

I know I am going to get flamed. The only solution to the cartels is to get the money out of illegal drugs. Let’s admit that the war on drugs is a failure and just legalize all drugs.

She was a manager in the newsroom, and posted on social media sites all the time, several sites say. Sounds like someone on the inside looked over her shoulder and then made a deal to rat her out to the zetas.

Even Tor wouldnt have helped.
