El Cartel del Golfo (CDG), former best friend of the Los Zetas cartel but now their prime enemy recently responded to the execution of Comandante Gallo by beheading a 17 year old girl who was so scared she soiled her pants, and to the beheading and dismemberment of four CDG affiliated women by beheading a 15 year old Honduran boy.
For a few weeks, things got somewhat quieter in Mexico, but with the execution of those four women, Zetas seem to have opened a can of worms and all hell seems to have broken loose. How the Gulf Cartel picks their victims to behead and dismember is anyone’s guess. There have been cases of ordinary people being kidnapped for show executions, and confessing to working for the rival cartel in order to avoid endless torture before beheading so who knows. It certainly seems as though many of these people are easy targets because they’re poor so they can’t afford their own army of bodyguards to protect them.
In this newly released video, members of the Gulf Cartel interrogate, behead and dismember four people who appear to “confess” that they’d worked for the Zeta cartel. One of the condemned is a woman who is held topless, dressed in only her underwear. Mexican drug cartels definitely seem to have dwindled away from using knife for beheadings, after years of embarrassing themselves with their inability to use them effectively so now they stick mostly with axes or machetes. As much as a beheading with an axe appears extremely brutal, it’s actually far more humane and faster than a beheading by knife. At least in Mexico.
