This video from April 2011 shows a group of masked CDG (Cartel del Golfo) sicarios dismembering what they claim is a member of the Los Zetas cartel with an axe. As is the case with most Mexican drug cartel videos, the picture quality is very poor.
The video is over 8 minutes long, cause that’s how long it apparently takes to dismember a body with an axe (they used a machete too) and during that time, the sicario videotaping talks over and over about how the Zetas killed the innocents, including children in San Fernando, Tamaulipas.
The leader of this faction of the Gulf Cartel (I presume the leader videotapes) makes references to Z-40, Z-42 and El Lazca (Lazcano) who are the top figures of the Zeta cartel. He calls all Zetas a garbage and repeatedly references the dismemberment as something that is going to happen to all who are a part of or help the Zetas in any way (including halcones aka hawks who are just lookouts).
From the narration in the video it would seem that the Gulf Cartel took upon themselves the duty to protect the innocent. Zetas are notorious for intimidation tactics so there’s no doubt many innocent people fell victim to their Narco operations. If CDG acts as they speak, then more power to them. Though with videos like this one – who knows who really the victim is. He’s already beheaded when the video starts and all we have is the word from these sicarios that he was a Zeta.
