    Bodies hung from bridge in Cuernavaca, Mexico

    Bodies hung from bridge in Cuernavaca, Mexico

    The bodies were hung from a bridge on a busy road south of Cuernavaca


    Police in Mexico say they have found four bodies hung from a bridge in an affluent town south of Mexico City.

    The four men had been decapitated and mutilated before being hung by their ankles from the bridge outside Cuernavaca, in the state of Morelos.

    A message had been left with their heads warning that anyone supporting Edgar Valdez would risk a similar fate.

    Edgar Valdez is reportedly fighting Hector Beltran Leyva for control of the influential Beltran Leyva drug cartel.

    Cuernavaca, a city of 350,000 and a popular weekend retreat spot for wealthy residents of Mexico City, is at the centre of the turf war.

    The cartel has been without a leader since Arturo Beltran Leyva was killed by the security forces in December.

    Edgar Valdez, a US citizen known as Barbie for his blonde hair, is a leading contender to take over as the head of the gang.

    But Hector Beltran Leyva, the former leader's brother, is also vying for that position. His other brother Carlos, another contender for the leadership, was arrested in January.

    Police said the killing of the four men, aged between 25 and 30, was most probably linked to the drug turf war.

    They had been reported kidnapped days earlier.

    The Beltran Leyva organisation is believed to have the most sophisticated intelligence of any of the Mexican drug cartels, and controls firms involved in, among others, transportation, electronics, health products and hospitality.

    Control over its many and varied operations is seen as a key prize.

    no thats bullshit.

    How do you view the governments execution of drug dealers a crime ?

    When civilians are killed by civilians, that is a crime

    Maybe you consider the govt of canada is ok to kill whoever it likes on your streets, but most countries don't go for that.

    Either way, you cannot compare government administered justice to illegal drug turf war killings.

    I heard a stat the other day that more people are dieing in Mexico turf wars now then in Iraq. I will try and dig it up.

    These aren't your nickle bag of weed or a 20 bag of coke in the pub bathroom dealers, these guys control many political leaders, police, and military. While I usually always side against the cops, this is a unique situation. The Mexican drug dealers just don't kill fellow dealers, they kill family members, friends, and other not involved, it is hard to have any sympathy for them.

    Socal... the way I view what I have read in posts and news...I would have to respectfully disagree with most of what you have said in this thread.

    How do I view the governments execution of "drug dealers"?... a total disregard for the idea of human rights.

    To many governments use words like "greater good" "liberty" "freedom" "terrorism" and innocents die.

    Most people believe now that a lot of people killed in the "war on drugs" of Thailand were not linked to drugs.

    A couple killed......won the lottery and told no-one ...looked like they had too much money.

    Baby killed....in a car...whether there were drugs involved or not..its not right.

    Police were incentivized with bonuses for the number of arrest, and later rewards of up to 40% of the value for information leading to seizure of assets.

    In each province, blacklists of those involved in drugs were separately drawn up by the police, by village heads, and by the ONCB. In total, 329,000 names were eventually listed (BP Dec. 11, 2003). Many provinces also had targeted canvassers of opposing political parties and many of these canvassers were subsequently killed.

    Another police colonel told the press he had been instructed to extract information from suspects and then kill them.

    This one sounds like an old Mafia story to me....

    Kornthep Wiriya, a former customs employee of Shin Satellite, the publicly listed telecommunication concern established by Thaksin and until last January majority-owned by his family. Kornthep apparently made the mistake of agreeing to serve as a prosecution witness in a politically charged 100 million baht (US$2.6 million) tax-evasion case against the company. He was ambushed and shot in the head by unidentified assailants while riding his motorcycle before he could testify in court.

    And lets not forget Terrorism....

    Krue Se Mosque, the point-blank shooting in the back of the heads of 19 restrained and handcuffed young Muslims at Saba Yoi.

    Governments...I could go on and on but this is a Thailand forum
    Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.

    At the moment there aren't really any South American countries that can hold a candle to Mexico, although Colombia tries and Venezuela has a pretty astonishing murder rate.

    PS: Mexico is technically in North America, hence NAFTA, etc. You meant Latin America, didn't you? Don't mean to quibble, but if you are going to bust another poster's balls for a fairly innocuous comment. . .and Thailand does have a fairly impressive murder rate, especially for Asia.
