23 seconds of the Mexican drug war-(Full video murder EXPLICIT GRAPHIC)
latimes ^ | 12/7/08 | By Sam Quinones

Reporting from Monterrey, Mexico -- In the seconds before the gunmen burst into the tiny Lozano Garza jewelry store in this city's downtown, three shoppers browsed the display cases.

An unarmed security guard sat by the door.

Talk about lousy muzzle control! Swept his lead right out of the gate.

“Highly trained Mexican Commandos” (Zetas) my backside.

Looked like full auto AK47/variant. And slime number 2 punching the guard twice with his pistol as they exited...

Wanna bet wounded shooter never made it to the escape car?

No physical security either.

Wonder what the beef was all about?

Traffic was pretty sparse, and I was counting on lightning not striking twice in the same place, so to speak. I think anyone on this board would have done the same. I just wish I could’ve done more to help.

In one of the slew of brilliant things I’ve done in my life being in unarmed target or guardvin a bank was one of my more brilliant moves.

Especially after one happy customer informed me to get a gun for tommorrow because he’s going to come back

"About 4000 have died in Mexico's drug war this year - about as many deaths as U.S. forces gave suffered in the Iraq War since it began in 2003."

Horrific incident.

Some liberals who are against the efforts of those America military heroes who choose to defend their country (whining about bringing them home, i.e., cutting & running so the US loses the war) are the same anti-American loudmouths who support illegal immigration. Just more 'Rat voters, ignorant of what made this country great, while at the same time flooding America with their culture.

The killers left the jewelry. Nor did they touch the cash register. They paid no heed to the three video cameras that recorded the entire scene.

Lying dead that afternoon of March 14, 2007, were an off-duty police commander and his wife, Benjamin Espinosa and Griselda Melendez,....


Sorry...this brutal mass murder was the result of the ILLEGALITY of drugs. If drugs were legal, or at the very least decriminalized, the drug cartels that perpetrated this crime would likely not exist.

I watched it about a half dozen times. I think the guy coming in the door had one get away from him and it might even be a ricochet but the bad guy that goes down looks like he was shot in the back.

“Sweet Jesus, that made me nauseous. Absolutely brutal.”

It’s the way third-world hits have been going down for decades. It used to be that thugs in the US knew they’d get caught and executed for doing innocent bystanders, but no longer. [And I know this particular one was in Mexico.]

You should check out what kids today are seeing on tv and in movies. Not to mention video games.

I agree with you. I'll likely always be against any legalization of manufactured drugs like methanphetimines and LSD, but those drugs naturally occurring should be handled in the same manner alcohol was addressed to end Prohibition.

The utter madness that has been the War on Drugs must end.

Monsters. Anybody wanna stand up for drug use now? Four innocent people just got wasted for a recreational habit in the States and in Europe.

Would you address the role of the black market created by prohibition of drugs, and the riches that black market brings to the drug cartels, in the case of this shooting?

On this the day after the 75th Anniversary of the Repeal of Alchohol Prohibition in the USA, were you to study a little bit of history, you might realize how the Mafia, organized crime, and corruption of public officials skyrocketed once the black market of ilegal alchohol was created.

Only then, might you realize how backwards your original statement is.

So you agree that drugs should be legalized. Interesting...

Brutal.

Yet leaders of our own country would want us unarmed.

Such wanton bloodlust. The worst part was they showed no mercy, they sprayed anything that moved, and some that didn’t. The worst one however, to me, was the security guard, that man kept shooting him at almost point blank range with his AK variant. Then while his corpse lay on the floor, he pulled his pistol and let another round into him. Barbarians.

Playing dead would not have helped. The killers made deliberate “security” (make sure they’re dead) shots into everybody, moving or not. This was professional, this was police or military, “off duty,” I have zero doubt.

Typical Mexico. Wear a badge one hour, a mask the next. See the movie “Traffic” with Michael Douglas.

The site is a visual tally of the results of the great War on Poverty, affirmative Action and Diversity @ all cost.
It is depressing.

Low level violence of the sort you describe in places like the UK occurs because citizens don’t have the right nor the means to defend themselves from it, and because the legal system is completely overboard in protecting the accused.

Violence like this War on Drugs incident, which is pretty obviously a planned hit on the police commander, happen because there is an artificial scarcity created by the government making drugs illegal. Economics 101 says that artificial scarcity drives up prices. There’s so much money involved, that people are willing to ignore the illegality and to kill over it.

Two very different situations.

The War on Drugs really *is* a quagmire. We haven’t managed to change human nature in the 50 or so years we’ve been fighting it. What makes you think doing more of the same will net a different result?
