The Associated Press reports that Mexican police and the Chiapas state attorney general announced Wednesday that they are investigating how vendors obtained a video of three men being burned to death by a mob of Tzotzil Indians in southern Mexico.
The mob caught three men dumping the body of an Indian woman they had raped. The three rapist-murderers were beaten before they were burned alive, and it’s all on hot-selling video tapes. A voice can be heard on the video saying, “Gasoline on everything!” And one of the men can be seen begging for mercy before they were torched.
The videos are being sold in street markets for 15 to 20 pesos ($1.15 to $1.50) each.
This incident took place in a remote area of the state of Chiapas where there is little or no police presence.
I would have to say that, while this wouldn’t fly in the good old U.S.A., under the circumstances justice was well served!
