Mexican man apparently killed for web comments
Associated Press ^ | Nov.10, 2011 | ADRIANA GOMEZ LICON

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- The decapitated body of a man was left Wednesday at the same monument in the border city of Nuevo Laredo where the corpse of a woman purportedly killed in retaliation for her postings on an anti-crime website had been left previously, authorities said.

A photo of the scene indicates the man was killed for reporting criminals on social media sites, raising fears drug cartels are increasingly targeting bloggers.

Not surprising. I think that people underestimate the technology, and resources the cartels have at their disposal.

What the heck was that guy thinking of? Was he born yesterday or unbelievably naive? It’s Mexico for crying out loud!

90% of all law enforcement is in the pocket of the drug cartels and all levels of civil government are totally corrupt.

What did he expect? The police would protect him? The internet service would protect his identity? The criminals would not make an example of him?

Mexico is a totally lost cause and the attempt by anyone there to do the right thing is cause for one’s own demise or misery.

CW2 Ping

The internet will open up an entire new dynamic during any possible CW2. If it is a tyrannical govt vs. freedom-loving patriots, expect the govt forces to use the internet in the same way as the Mexican cartels to find and murder their political enemies.

Radical political factions will also use the internet to find and take out their own enemies. Between Google, google street view, whitepagesdotcom etc, almost anybody can be located and targeted.

Something to consider, in a CW2 context.

Big time. In small numbers, folks can be disappeared or accidented to death. In big numbers, proxy CW2 factions can be given hit lists derived from data mining. Hiding will be nearly impossible.

Yeah, scary how fast an “anonymous” post can be tracked.

There is no privacy left, at all. CW2 will be a remote control war, using the internet for targeting.

Thank God we have the War on Some Drugs, or the cartels would never have been able to become such an overwhelming force for good.

I recommend using a network already set-up that’s used by a variety of people around the world. That way traffic is intertwined with as many others as possible.

I’ve used TOR (https://www.torproject.org/). It allows pretty much anyone to set-up a relay node as well as use the proxy. The more nodes, the harder it is to track individual traffic.

The traffic is encrypted through the proxy network *except* the last hop from the exit node to the destination website. This is where https comes in. The real key here is to maximize the number of exit nodes that are in the hands of the “good guys.”

I’d encourage everyone concerned about web privacy to go to the TOR website and read, read, read. Setting up a node is not that difficult. You can select how much bandwidth you are willing to allocate to proxy traffic. If you’re open to being an exit node, be sure to read the particulars on it; there *are* risks to being an exit node.

When going the proxy route (or any form of anonymizer), don't forget to consider rubber hose cryptology.

~SIGH~ That's just ... Stellar.

Two comments: #1 If that's true (and I'm sure it is) well, I'm a goner. No sense in even trying to hide. But then there is always Comment #2: That will afford me to make a capital gain on all the precious metal I have been buying for the last THIRTY years. Not gold, not silver, but rather all the LEAD & BRASS investments....

Absolutely true. Time now to consider what will take to have an unwelcoming committee ready on a constant alert basis. Not doable unless you triple- or quadruple-up.

There’s no way to predict how this will shake out. Mad Max to the USSA and a thousand other outcomes. But I will say that Hitler and Stalin never had such powerful tools for locating their most ardent and effective political enemies, finding, and eliminating them.

They won’t necessarily come in a nice SWAT stack. Rambo himself could get capped in the back of the head walking down the street. Or they can arrange a bit of polonium in your next restaurant meal. If they want you, you’re dead, in that context. That’s why it’s so important to fight NOW, politically, to keep it from going hot. If it goes hot, it could be a bloodbath, or a finely calibrated purge of likely leaders. That is not the time to wish we had been more forceful before. Now is the time to push back against the Marxists. Later will be too late.
