Chainsaw appears to have become the favorite execution tool of the Mexican drug cartels. While the infamous Chainsaw Beheading of Sinaloa Members remains one of the most notorious videos from Mexico, it is hardly the only one in which chainsaw played a main role. Most Mexican Chainsaw Massacres don’t make it out in a way of pictures or videos, we only get to see the aftermath.
Decapitating and cutting executed members of rival cartels as a way of intimidation and to send a message that they don’t fuck around has been utilized by Mexican drug cartels for years. Chainsaw, I suppose, makes the tiring job of dismembering dozens of executed bodies a little easier. Those bones and tendons are often sturdy enough to give the butcher hard time but with a chainsaw in his hand, the job becomes much easier to do.
