    The idea of “offing” politicians here started with the Kennedys but died out. Maybe it should be resurrected.

    Guy had zero security. With his stance against the cartels, that’s an interesting “no fucks given, bring it” strategy. Didn’t exactly work for him, eh?

      “You will help us make a statement, Sr Purón. You will be at the Plaza de las Culturas, in the open, at 7 pm on Friday. You will be unaccompanied and you will not have security. If you are not at the right place at the right time your wife and daughters will end their days in a two-peso brothel. But rest assured we will not harm your son. We will simply deliver him to the island of Jeffrey Epswine (sic) where he will meet famous people, very important politicians and world leaders; people who are important as you only aspire to be. Your boy will get to know them very well. Intimately, in fact. And his new friends will get to know him well too, inside and out, you might say.

      Say, your son doesn’t get airsick does he? Four year olds sometimes don’t travel well, and we would want him to be at his best, to make a good first impression. Or you can not visit the Plaza, as you wish. It’s really your choice, Sr Purón….”

    “More than 1,000 candidates have dropped out of local races ahead of the July 1 elections because they fear being gunned down.“

    Interesting that media puppets and politicians never fuck with moslems and cartels. Yet patriots, dirt people, and Christians are scapegoated, demonized and shit on daily. Weird, huh?
