13-Year-Old Mexican Drug Cartel Hitman Found Dead, Tortured ( Gun Free zone )
CBS Houston ^ | March 1, 2013

MORELOS, Mexico — A 13-year-old Mexican drug cartel hitman was found dead along with five other people.

Univision reports that Jorge Armando Moreno’s body showed signs of torture when he was found near the town of Morelos.

Moreno — who was a member of the Los Zetas gang — was arrested earlier this month, along with 15 other suspects, and confessed to taking part in 10 executions.

He was released into his family’s custody because he was too young to be criminally prosecuted. Zacatecas state law says no one under the age of 14 can be subject to criminal prosecution.

...

Earlier this week, a group of armed men broke into a prison and freed 12 prisoners in the state of Tamaulipas on the border with Texas.

...

Mexico has suffered a series of prison breaks in recent years. One of the largest, the flight of 131 in the state of Coahuila in September, was blamed on the Zetas cartel, which also controls much of Tamaulipas.

Can’t say this is any great loss. If he continued to live, he probably would have murdered many more.

A 13 year old hitman? Shades of Colombia in the 1980s.

But hey, we don’t need to secure the border or anything.

A 13 yr old can’t be prosecuted for committing murder in Mexico, but a 13 yr. old hitmen can definitely be tortured and killed.

What a horrible country.

Even for murder?!

Something's got to change.

Too bad BO and Big Sis didn’t let this kid take them to one of the gatherings of the Zetas or a guided tour of his neighborhood. They think everything is so peaceful and wonderful there.

BUMP

I hear in some countries kids are forced to be hitmen because they can’t be charged as adults

I understand your reaction as it was initially mine as well. I'm not sorry the kid is dead in the broad sense. But it does stir my soul that a 13 year old boy had been coerced, forced, trained, etc. to be a brutal killer. He didn't turn 12 and decide, I want to murder people for the rest of my life. Think about a 13 year old you know. What a sickening dillema.

Pretty common in US gangs, but I don't know how much they are being forced. I think they're young, stupid and want to be in the gang.

It's true.

By the time a kid is a 13-year-old hit man, he has no future. To think that such a kid can be redeemed is a forlorn hope. At that point, society as a whole is probably better off with the hit man dead.

But the fact that a 13-year-old kid was coerced, manipulated, misguided, whatever, into this. THAT is a crying shame.

if you don't think that this goes on every day in this country you are sadly mistaken...ChicaGO HAS 500 OR 600 murders per year....you think that the victims are 50 or 60 year old gansgters....they aren't, they are 13, 14, 15, 16, year old kids, and our society is too damn stupid to figure it out and stop it...

Same as strapping a bomb to a child. It is the adults that do this to a kid that are the scum. Don’t feel sorry for the kid. Those adults turned him from a kid to a monster. The kid died a long time ago. Realize the world is harsh and your sympathies as a civil person don’t fit, are totally out of context to the real world.

At the same time, my heart aches that there are those who will so pervert the young. I hope the millstone around their necks becomes a heavy burden indeed as the salt water invades their lungs...

I would suggest that the law abiding folks take up arms and reclaim their country.
