An exceptionally savage video of an execution shows alleged members of a Venezuelan cartel attempting to behead a teenage boy with a machete. The dull machete inflicted a lot of agony on the boy.
According to the backinfo I got, the victim was only 16 years old. He is shown in the video gagged and with his hand tied behind his back. The machete wielder delivers a brutal chop into his throat. Despite the cruel blow, it takes the boy a moment to react. The executioners then chop into his neck from different angles, but none of the blows manages to severe the head, apparently because the machete was really dull.
The young man in the video tried to steal from a farm so gang leader Tirso Meleán ordered his henchmen to punish him, and publish the video on the internet as a message to anyone who tries to steal his property.
He says: “Esto es dedicado para todo aquel que intente robar las haciendas de Tirso Meleán, el que manda a nivel nacional y reconocido mundialmente.”
Which means: “This is dedicated to everyone who tries to steal Tirson Melán’s farms, the one leading the nation and recognized internationally.”
