A video released by a Mexican drug cartel titled “El Comandante Diablo y Rey de Reyes Acabando con los Zetas“, meaning “The Commander Devil and King of Kings Busting the Zetas” has been released. In the video, five members of the Zetas cartel are beheaded and dismembered by Cartel Del Golfo (the Gulf Cartel) sicarios. The video is 12 minutes long and as brutal as you would expect from anything coming out of Mexico. Likewise, as it goes with Mexican drug cartel beheadings, the assassins are having hell of a difficult time sawing through the spines.
It sounds as though this video was either filmed by a woman, or someone young or faggy enough to sound like one. It was recorded in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
The video starts with a beheading of a guy laid in the dirt on his side. His hands are tied behind his back, he’s topless but his pants are still on. Offering no resistance, the sicario sinks his knife into his neck from the side and starts sawing. It would seem that trachea was not severed until some half a minute into the beheading, which is when loud gasping for air begins.
Instead of dealing with the spinal cord from the front, the sicario tries his luck severing the spine from the back but it traditionally doesn’t work out. After a while of trying from every which angle, he eventually resorts to chopping at the spine with a long blade machete. That expectedly sends twitches down already dead man’s limp body.
A sicario wearing a BDSM style face mask lifts severed head up and makes a statement:
Esto es lo que les va a pasar a todas las mierdas que anden con la letra e! de Hiera, de Mante, de Victoria de Santa Engracia, de Barretal, de donde sea a si van a terminar todos culeros a la verga de parte del Comandante Diablo del Señor Rey de Reyes.
Google Translate tells me it means the following:
This is what will happen to all the shit that walk with the letter, e! Of Hiera, of Mante, of Victoria de Santa Engracia, of Barretal, wherever whether they will end all the dick assholes from the Devil Commander of the Lord King of Kings.
When he says “la letra” (the letter), he’s clearly referring to the letter “Z”, meaning the Zetas.
Next man beheaded has a thick neck and it gives the sicario a lot of trouble. And I mean “a lot of trouble”. The sicario is not getting anywhere sewing that neck so after a while, the cameraman pans the camera to film sicarios who are dismembering the man while he’s being decapitated. The victim is naked and gets his both lower legs chopped off at his knees.
With lower legs successfully amputated, the sicarios flip the man over so the beheader can try to cut the head off from the front and the dismemberment duo start to deal with severing upper legs at the hips. The beheading doesn’t go smoothly from the front either so the godsend machete comes to the rescue once more. These sicarios could really use a few lessons from the Middle Eastern Snackbarists.
Chops to the spine result in rapid hand movement. You’d almost think the man was still alive if all you could see were his hands. Machete did the trick and second head was now successfully severed.
Tired of having bitch of a time beheading these Zetas, the CDG sicarios resort to using the machete very early into the third beheading. One tilts the Zeta’s head backwards but that sends chopping blade of the machete dangerously near his hands so he impales the victim with his dagger through the mouth and uses it as a head tilting lever. Much safer that way although it still took hell of a long time to finish the beheading.
The third decapitated Zeta gets “the letter” carved into his torso.
An encore starts at around the 8:55 minute mark. Two Zetas are seen kneeling on the ground at a location different from where the first part of the video was filmed. One of the Zetas is shot at point blank to the back of his head and slowly rolls down. The second Zeta is decapitated and poor dude lets out an incredibly painful sounding cry when it begins.
Sounds this fellow makes are the worst part of the video. The CDG sicarios see that he’s suffering so they don’t try to rush the beheading in any way. The victim looked to me like some kind of office worker. He didn’t strike me as an assassin with dozens of career hits. Makes you wonder if like Fake Syrian Army, these sicarios justify their paychecks by kidnapping random people from the street, coercing them into admitting to working for the Zetas and executing them on video to look good in the eyes of El Comandante Diablo and Rey de Reyes.
The video ends with the sicario showing the severed head to camera. As he does that, tongue starts coming out of the dead man’s mouth. The sicario then drops the head to the ground like an empty can of beer he’s just chugged. Viva la Mexico!
