Anyone with basic deductive reasoning skills can quickly arrive at the conclusion that when you combine…
- Highly disciplined structure of Mexican cartels
- Ruthless propensity for violence of Mexican cartels
- Greed of Mexican cartels
- A porous border to the U.S.
… You get the likelihood that, in time, Mexican cartels will start taking over drug trafficking in U.S. cities (and, in due course, infiltrating local, border-town police departments in the U.S.) Here’s a recent, relevant story:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) stopped a plot by three Mexican cartel members to kidnap San Diego, California-based drug dealers for unpaid debts and then torture them. The cartel members will now spend time in U.S. federal prison, according to Susan Shroder of the San Diego Union Tribune.
The three will serve sentences ranging from ten to seven-and-a-half years for conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
At least one of the three Mexican cartel members entered the U.S. illegally in their plan to kidnap the drug dealers, bring them back to Mexico, torture them, and then dissolve the victims’ corpses in acid, according to Shroder.
The three Mexican cartel members are Carlos Alberto Andrade De La Cruz, Luis Miguel Salas Rodriguez, and Antonio Zermeno Garcia. Though Rodriguez and Garcia are reportedly from San Diego, De La Cruz is from Tijuana, Mexico. A search of court records reveals that De La Cruz has illegally entered the U.S. previously and was convicted of using another person’s passport. It is unclear if his illegal re-entry was done alone or with the others.
One of the Dreamers was previously deported (i.e., freed to come back again.)
Another recent case that was first reported by Breitbart News involved a Chicago kidnapping of a woman and her children in retribution for a matter involving cocaine from a Mexican drug cartel. This case was unique in that the official court documents specifically stated the cocaine belonged to a Mexican cartel.
Hmmm… I wonder if this is in any way connected to other things going on in Chicago these days?
