This is the man who was killed by the La Empresa racketeers the day before this merchant. Both were killed because they did not pay the racketeers the requested amount for “protection”. This man was a barber in Nezahualcoyotl, Estado de México, likewise earning his living with honest work. He got his brains shot out of his head.
Look at the people La Empresa – small business owners. This barber was probably just about earning enough for his family to live a decent life, but nowhere near enough to afford his own bodyguards. Small Business Owners – people struggling to get by during tough economic times make for the easiest targets for the racketeers.
