Mexican drug cartel execution videos are the very peak of the mountain of gore. The brutality and cold-bloodedness of their executions and torture methods are always at the most extreme side of things and remain unrivalled anywhere in the world. Treatment the man in this video received was no different. It’s yet another perk from the Blog del Narco collection and is no less violent than anything else that came out of Mexico.
The executioners are members Mexican criminal group called La Linea. The beaten to death and dismembered man was one Joaquin Gallegos. The messages appearing at the beginning and end of the video appear to warn members of the Sinaloa Cartel lead by El Chapo Guzman (Joaquín Guzmán Loera). Perhaps our friends who speak Spanish can help us translate what exactly the captions say.
Video starts with Joaquin Gallegos stripped down to underwear, gagged, blindfolded and with his hands and feet tied laying on a floor of a dimly lit room. This rendered Joaquin Gallegos completely unable to defend himself in any way and the captors took great advantage of it. Two La Linea men are seen taking turns to savagely beat Joaquin Gallegos with baseball bats as the restrained man rolls around in agonizing pain.
Several blows were aimed at the spine – clearly with an intention to shatter it and paralyze the victim. Internal injuries must have been severe – on top of unspeakable pain from pulverized bones and joints. The torturers literally beat the life out of Joaquin Gallegos with those baseball bats.
At the 2:10 minute mark, the victim is beat to the brink of death. The torturers turned him on his stomach and delivered blows to the base of cerebellum (nape of the neck). Blows to that part of body, if strong enough, are mortal. Full swing baseball bat blows to that area will most certainly cause death.
After killing Joaquin Gallegos by shattering his neck vertebrae, there is a cut in the video and the victim is seen stripped naked on the floor and the La Linea men proceed to dismember him with an axe, one limb at a time. The axe is also used to decapitate Joaquin Gallegos – decapitation, as you all know, is a common part of Mexican drug cartel executions.
At the end of the video, a message is displayed which allegedly translates as:
Ministerial police who support Chaputo. For those who do not believe, here is the proof – Joaquin Gallegos, executed on May 13, 2011 and keep supporting El Chaputo.
