Vigilante Justice Mexican-Indian Style

katz-litter4The 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!

    Justice is one thing. Anyone who would want to view such a tape, much less buy one, is a sick-tard POS, regardless of how deserving the 3 may have been.

      Paco, as you know, I have watched several videos of beheadings and dismemberments from Borderland Beat. I do not seek them out or look forward to watching them. When I do watch them, I do not enjoy what I see. I watch them so that I can let others know just exactly how cruel and bloodthirsty the Mexican cartel members are.

      Now, does that make me a “sick-tard POS?”

      • pacovilla says:

        Of course, consistent with the guidelines of the Supreme Court, aka the Miller Test, I infer if the viewing is for prurient interest, then yes, you would fit in that category. However, as you clearly viewed these awful things for educational purposes, you are not, in my humble opinion, a sick-tard POS. I should have been more clear. I hope you accept my apology. :)

        • Howie Katz says:

          Paco, you hurt me deeply. It will be hard for me to accept your apology, but I’ll try hard to do so.

          Just kidding! You do not owe me any apology. I never took your comment to imply that I was a POS. It was just a rhetorical question.

    Justice and law are not necessarily the same thing, especially in a country where the police are for sale and gangs essentially run the country.
