    Don't post "funny things" on the Internet... (GRUESOME)

    Tortured, disemboweled and hung from a bridge for tweeting: Couple killed by Mexican drug cartel as gruesome warning to bloggers who 'snitch' online

    By Jessica Satherley

    A couple have been found hanging from a bridge in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo after being disembowelled and mutilated by attackers.

    The motive for the gruesome attack was to warn social media users not to criticise Mexican drug cartels on the internet.

    Next to the battered bodies was a sign reading: ‘This is going to happen to all those posting funny things on the internet, You better (expletive) pay attention. I’m about to get you.’
    Enlarge Brutal: The disemboweled corpses of a man (right) and a woman hang from a pedestrian bridge in Nuevo Laredo after they were murdered by a drugs cartel.


    The woman, thought to be in her 20s, was tied to the bridge from her feet and hands as her body dangled topless with her innards protruding.

    The man’s body, also believed to be in his early 20s, was hanging from just his hands.


    Online blogging about violence in Mexico is currently one of the loudest ways it is reported, after some traditional media outlets have been silenced by cartel threats.

    Bloggers who release information about trafficking have faced threats in the past, but this might be the first warning to social network users, CNN reported.


    This sign was left on the bridge, translated from Spanish: 'This is going to happen to all those posting funny things on the internet'




    Investigator Ricardo Mancillas Castillo told CNN that this form of torture, including disembowelment, has been seen before in drug-related violence but he has not encountered it before with internet threats.
    The investigator said the victims will be almost impossible to identify because of the severe mutilation and there were no witnesses.

    The bodies were found on Tuesday morning, which is thought to be 36 hours after they were killed.

    It will also be impossible to find out whether the victims actually posted anything online about the cartels too, he said.

    The two blogs that the attackers signalled out as a warning to internet users were Al Rojo Vivo and Blog del Narco.

    Blog del Narco (pictured) is a site that only posts news in relation to Mexican drug violence



    While Al Rojo Vivo (pictured) is a forum where bloggers can make anonymous tips about crime

    Blog del Narco is a site that only posts news in relation to Mexican drug violence.

    The site made a statement to CNN, saying that Blog del Narco is not dedicated to criticising crime and added: ‘We are not in favour or against any criminal group, we only inform as things happen.’

    While Al Rojo Vivo is a forum where bloggers can make anonymous tips about crime.

    Over the last five years more than 34,000 people have died in drug-related violence in the country.

    ^^^ I would think this has given the Webmasters of those two sites some food for thought, not to mention the hosting companies!

    hm, when I press 'enlarge' on the photo, the disembowelled topless woman has been pixellated, so I can't really see her bare boobies.

    Mexico moves closer to a U.S. invasion. Don't laugh!!! Invading Panama was once "unthinkable". Merkins are serious about drug-related shite.

    ^ I too can see this thread carrying on and missing the importance of this situation.

    Back home folks like to make fun of mexicans in a number of ways. I often compare Thai culture to Mexican culture, specifically the way they "dress" up their cars and live by a strict "honor thy brother" type of lifestyle.

    But really, The mexicans are far more intelligent.. And deadly to the U.S (obviously)
    Due to plain numbers. Thai's and Hispanics have quite a bit in common in terms of motivation in their lives. It is simply to find a way to get money out of foreigners. Can you imagine if Thailand were closer to the states?? Coupled with the mexicans the USA would be further foked off than it is, if you can imagine that.

    RIP to the two poor souls in this case. And the thousands of others who have died to preserve secrecy.

    ^ My guess is, If you live in the states, particularly the southwestern most states,, you would care most.. Seeing as how they are at the highest risk of violence due to Mexican drug cartel violence. I have an aunt and sister who live in Texas, one in San Antonio and the other in Dalhart... And although they're not exactly border towns... The violence in Texas is worse than the violence in California these days,, same goes for Arizona.. The Mexican drug threat to America is more real than ever. And this is surely because of methamphetamine.

    So to answer your question politely,Rodney.... People who live around the plagued areas and their families are worried.... The cartel violence is a lot of times random, based on peoples status in society.. My sisters husband is a San Antonio city police officer. I worry less about what may happen to him as he wears a badge and gun, and more of my relatives (his and my family) who could be targeted.

    These mexicans play very dirty. Thais are nowhere near as deadly, regarding the drug business. If a Thai gets caught with dope they rat eachother out and confess... Mexicans rarely do that, they're far more ruthless.

    You're blaming Mexicans for all the violence? Who do you think is buying the drugs?

    I think Mexican drug dealers are nice people but Noodles said some really terrible things about them and he grassed them to the DEA.

    Does this mean plans for Rambo V (Sly takes on the Mex drug gangs) will be put on hold?

    Mexico is filled with terrorists. To invade would mean war on Americas streets. The US likes wars where Americans don't actually have to get involved. Even assisting the Mexican government more might mean Americans hanging from American bridges and Las Vegas Casinos going up in flames with all their patrons in them. There have to be loads of Mexican gangsters in the US. Okay, maybe it wouldn't be so bad but Mexico is not far away over an ocean so America probably won't get involved. Those Texas oil facilities are a tad too close to the border to risk it. But what's the problem, right? The total number of those filthy brown-skinned border jumpers are being reduced. Who cares about them? I'd guess that's what the non-latino American population thinks. Mexico isn't a threat. America steps in when they can't ruin their own nation themselves.

    I agree with all of what you wrote and of course I understand...but I was referring to the invasion of Mexico not drugs or the drug dealers.

    It's interesting how many people both on and off TD still insist that drugs don't actually harm anyone. However I for one am sure the two unfortunates pictured at the beginning of this thread wouldn't have been tortured and disembowelled it it wasn't for the drug dealers.

    Rightly or wrongly there is a drugs world war going on run by people who's only real God is money. Unless worldwide society get the message across to users that drugs are a problem and that they can and will fuck your life up...then the problem is only going one way and that's downhill all the way!

    Mexico is in the middle of a bizarre, multi-factional civil war- the government against the drug cartels, and the drug cartels against each other. Around 40,000 have died in the past five years. The situation is very complex- any US intervention would have to be at the behest of the Mexican government, which would be political death for whatever government did so. The US recession has discouraged a lot of illegal job seekers from coming, which probably makes the situation in Mexico even more acute for obvious reasons. One factor that makes the cartels so dangerous is that they use highly trained ex-soldiers who learned their trade courtesy of the US military and taxpayer.

    For interesting reactions to what is happening in Mexico, try looking to what people are saying in other Latin American countries. Everyone is terrified of the Mexican drug dealers now.

    Is it the drugs themselves or the greedy murderous people who get into the industry? Do guns kill people or people kill people? Lots of factors to consider in this issue.

    No doubt any drug can screw up its users. Alcohol results in more deaths worldwide than any other drug. Lots of things to consider in what's to blame.
