American anarchist 'John Galton' shot dead in Acapulco

MEXICO CITY — An American anarchist who went by the name John Galton was shot dead at his home in the Mexican resort of Acapulco, sending shivers through a tightknit anti-establishment community of expatriates that organizes events in the violence-torn retreat with seminars on topics such as how to make money via cryptocurrencies.

A woman describing herself as John’s partner, Lily, said via social media that she saw the gunmen go straight for John and his friend Jason Henza, 43. Henza made it to a private hospital with bullet wounds in an armpit, leg and hand. The hospital said he checked out that same day. Mexican police found equipment to process drugs, glass pipes and marijuana plants at the home.

Lily and Henza both posted videos to Facebook immediately after the shooting. Lily screamed: “I really need help! Somebody please come.” In his post, a bearded Henza said in a blood-smattered T-Shirt: “We were attacked. I’ve been shot three times. I’m not doing so good.”

Prior to the shooting, John and Lily hosted weekly “Meat Ups” at a local restaurant where self-professed carnivores dined only on meat. They were also busy recruiting speakers for an anarchist conference set to take place in Acapulco later in February. The dreadlocked couple, both in their 20s, posted a video to Facebook two months ago calling for attendees at the conference.

“We want freedom of ideas,” John said from the patio of a house that the couple rented for $400 a month high above the bay of Acapulco. Waves lapped gently far below and roosters crowed as he spoke.

It’s likely no coincidence he called himself John Galton.

An Anarchist got anarchy.

Sounds like a win-win.

His desire for freedom of ideas has holes in it. Should’ve stayed off the drugs.

Well that makes sense, right?

Would an anarchist go to a state hospital?

Even if he did and it meant his life would be saved, I could see a true anarchist standing on principle and dying. Just to avoid using a hospital funded by the government.

Look at that smirk! Dreadlocks! Anarchist! Druggy drug maker! Living off his girl friend's glass blowing business! No wonder someone wanted to shoot him.
