This video easily rivals all the most brutal videos I’ve ever seen. Los Zetas have been under a lot of pressure lately, especially since El Chapo Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel teamed up with CDG (Cartel del Golfo, aka the Gulf Cartel) and the fastest growing drug cartel in Mexico as of late – CJNG (Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación aka The Jalisco New Generation Cartel) to eliminate Zetas once and for all, but Zetas have far from lost the war yet. El Lazca, the leader of Los Zetas is believed to have 10,000 sicarios under his command and many of top Zeta operatives are trained ex military so we’re still gonna hear a lot from them.
This video is of Zetas coming back at CGD (Cartel del Golfo). The Z’s kidnapped 4 members of the Gulf Cartel – two men and two women – and executed them on camera in an exceptionally brutal way. First, the sicarios sealed the faces of the victims with a duct tape, then had them bend over and clubbed them to death with a 2×4. Completely incapacitated from the 2×4 blows, the victims are then beheaded.
Traditionally, being from Mexico, picture quality of the video is complete shit. Not only do the sicarios appear to use obsolete, crap cameras, they also carry out their executions at night with hardly any light. This video appears to have been filmed by a beam from a handheld flash light. The utmost brutality is there, including unrivalled violence towards women, but the image with which to show it is pure shit. And aside a much needed camera upgrades, a little investment into knife sharpeners would also go a long way, me thinks.
The video starts with a caption which reads:
Matando a las golfas cartel de informants
Google Translate tells me that it means:
Killing of the informants for the Gulf Cartel
Each of 4 captives is briefly interviewed and each briefly states their name and what they did for the cartel. One by one, they get their faces sealed with a duct tape by sicarios who wear uniforms bearing the name of the cartel they are associated with. With their faces shut, the victims take powerful blows to the back of their heads with a 2×4.
Zetas have always been known for exceptional cruelty and this video clearly shows why the reputation is well deserved. Though one could argue that clubbing saved the victims from having to experience slow and agonizing death by beheading. The blows they took from the 2×4 were powerful enough to turn their lights off.
The strange thing is that during the interrogation at the beginning of the video, the two men and two women confessed to being relatives of El Comandante del Diablo, but they say it with so much uncertainty, it makes you wonder whether they are just civilians coerced into confessing in order to avoid getting tortured before the execution. Fake Syrian Army utilizes the same practises when executing innocent civilians. Are these victims real relatives of Comandante Diablo or are Los Zetas losing ground and desperate for new videos, they turn to killing civilians whom they force into admitting to being something they’re not?
Anyway, here’s the video. Just as every other gore made in Narco Mexico, it’s way up there so exercise caution if you’re squeamish. I’ve always wondered though – when sicarios kidnap women, do they fuck ’em before they kill ’em or what? Props to Best Gore member papi1 for the video:
