Cartels have taken cruelty up a notch, says one drug trafficker: kidnapping bus passengers for gladiatorlike fights to the death
The elderly are killed. Young women are raped. And able-bodied men are given hammers, machetes and sticks and forced to fight to the death.
In one of the most chilling revelations yet about the violence in Mexico, a drug cartel-connected trafficker claims fellow gangsters have kidnapped highway bus passengers and forced them into gladiatorlike fights to groom fresh assassins.
In an in-person interview arranged by intermediaries on the condition that neither his name nor the location of his Texas visit be published, the trafficker also admitted to helping push cocaine worth $5 million to $10 million a month into the United States.
Law enforcement sources confirm he is a cartel operative but not a fugitive from pending charges.
His words are not those of a federal agent or drawn from a news conference or court papers.
Instead, he offers a voice from inside Mexico's mayhem a mafioso who mingles among crime bosses and foot soldiers in a protracted war between drug cartels as well as against the government.
If what he says is true, gangsters who make commonplace beheadings, hangings and quartering bodies have managed an even crueler twist to their barbarity.
Members of the Zetas cartel, he says, have pushed passengers into an ancient Rome-like blood sport with a modern Mexico twist that they call, "Who is going to be the next hit man?"
"They cut guys to pieces," he said.

Poor, poor Mexico.
Mexico is an example of what can happen, when you tolerate the smallest amount of corruption.
The terrorists who influence the mexican mafia are enjoying the murder of the humane mexican people. When there are less people, and more murderers, sociopaths and psychopaths, the controllers, “the elite”, will stay in more and more money.
Poor, poor us.
Mexico is sharing its crime and violence. The wealthy flee to the U.S. The cartels will follow their prey.
And the population is essentially unarmed.
A law ceases to be a law, when people aren’t willing to obey it.
And FYI - Mexico is a gun-control paradise.
