Out of Mexico comes another incredibly brutal drug cartel execution video, though in this case, unlike in so many cases before, the captive was granted a quick and relatively painless death.
The video starts with a close up of a man with bound hands and tape over his eyes being interrogated by a man off camera. The sicario asks the victim a sequence of questions which are all promptly answered. Because he’s blindfolded, the captive doesn’t know what and when is going to happen to him. Luckily for him, all that happens is a close range gunshot to the temple from the side. While incredibly brutal, compared to most execution videos that come out of Mexico, I think the “luckily for him” statement is more than appropriate. What makes it really brutal is how the victim’s skull bursts open after it takes the shot from a high powered handgun.
Props for the video go to the Best Gore member Dave aka archamedes who described the video as follows:
A Mexican drug cartel member is caught up in this ongoing war, and is captured by his rivals, blindfolded and bound by the hands. He is then ordered to state his name and his sins. An automatic is then raised to the side of his head and he is shot at almost point blank range. If you watch carefully at the slow motion replay, you actually see his forehead burst open. I am not sure if this is an exit wound caused by the bullet ricocheting his skull or the blast pressure causing his head to burst open like a grape. But at least he had it easy unlike most.
I agree, compared to most, this man had it easy, despite graphic visual after bullet enters his temple. Video is below.
Many thanks to Best Gore member Frankenchrist for translation of the dialogue from Spanish to English. As became clear from the dialogue, in this video, a hit man for El Chapo is being interrogated by his captors who are asking him question about what he knows of El Chapo’s operations in the area:
