Living in Mexico is basically like an average episode of Breaking Bad, minus the irony and self-awareness.
Hey, anyone can kill a few people and dissolve their bodies in acid by mistake. Really, is there anyone this never happened to?
Racists will use this as an argument why we shouldn’t let Mexicans in our country. But what I can tell from this story, is that we instead need to better educate our immigrants. For example, we need them to learn how to properly identify their victims before they torture, murder them and dissolve their bodies.
There’s nothing we can’t accomplish with education, my friends.
Last month, three Mexican university students were filming a school project when they disappeared. The last time they were seen alive, they were being forced into a car by two armed men dressed as police officers in Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city, in the western state of Jalisco.
Oh, that’s a good traveling tip. If you’re ever in Mexico, and get stopped by police, remember that they could be state police… But they could also be members of drug cartels posing as police in order to kidnap and murder you.
That kind of unpredictability really makes life in Mexico exciting, doesn’t it? By the way, the above picture is actual police – I think.
For more than a month, the case of the missing students remained a mystery. But on Monday, Mexican authorities revealed gruesome details from their investigation.
After they were abducted, the film students were beaten and killed, and their bodies dissolved in acid, the attorney general’s office in Jalisco said in a televised news conference Monday.
The students, who authorities say had no connection to any criminal gangs, found themselves inadvertently enmeshed in an ongoing conflict between two drug cartels. Members of Mexico’s most powerful cartel, Cartel Jalisco New Generation, may have confused the students with members of a rival drug cartel, the attorney general’s office said. Authorities have arrested two suspects in connection with the crime and have issued arrest warrant for six others, all believed to be part of a cell of Cartel Jalisco New Generation.
Mexico is basically a war zone right now. The cartels are running the country, with the government merely creating a veneer of order to gloss over all the criminality.
But make no mistake, the country is going full-Aztec, and fast.
Killing for demon gods or killing for drugs, same difference. [Editor’s Note: Metaphysically it is literally the same difference. The demon gods live in the drugs. -AA]
The whole place is overrun with psycho-killers hopped up on drugs and thirsty for blood. So it’s no surprise they’d just slaughter a few students without checking their identity.
The details of the story are insane.
The three young men hailed from different parts of Mexico but were all students at the University of Audiovisual Media in Guadalajara. They had been working on a film project in a house they were told belonged to one of their aunts, located in Tonala, a city outside Guadalajara.
But it turns out the home was also used as a safe house for a gang known as the Nueva Plaza cartel, headed by a leader known as El Cholo, according to the attorney general’s office. In 2015, a prominent member of that cartel, Diego Gabriel Mejía, had been detained at the house alongside other members. (Authorities said Mejía and the student’s aunt both had ties to a massage parlor that served as a prostitution business.)
Because Mejía was soon to be released from prison, members of his rival gang, Cartel Jalisco New Generation, began keeping a close watch on the safe house. The presence of the three young men on the property may have raised their suspicions, the Jalisco attorney general’s office said.
“Without knowing it, the students were in a place of grave risk, watched by a criminal cell of the Cártel Nueva Generación,” the Jalisco attorney general’s office said.
Then, on March 19, the three students, along with a fourth classmate and three other young people, were leaving the area when one of their cars broke down. Two pickup trucks pulled up, and six heavily armed men approached them, authorities said. The armed men, dressed as law enforcement officers, ordered everyone to get down on the ground.
When criminals can just pretend to be cops right there in the streets, you know you’ve hit peak lawlessness.
Then, they forced the three students, Gastélum, Ávalos and Díaz, into one of their trucks and drove them to a house used by the cartel to interrogate and torture victims, authorities said.

“It is here that they begin to beat one of them,” chief investigator Lizette Torres said in the news conference. While interrogating the students, the suspects ended up beating one of them so brutally that he died. Therefore, “they had to execute the other two,” Torres said.
The criminals were probably intoxicated, and just enjoyed the violence.
Authorities say the suspects then took the bodies of the students to another location, where they dissolved them in acid. Investigators found 46 barrels of sulfuric acid at the site, and believe that other bodies may have been disposed of there. Cartels in Mexico are known to dissolve, burn or dismember bodies as a way to eliminate evidence of crimes.
So they killed some random kids because they were hanging out in a house where a rival gang member once lived for a while.
This is the kind of colorful event Mexican immigration is bringing to America.
Why wait for WW3 and the ensuing nuclear apocalypse, when we can enjoy a dystopian Mad Max-style ultraviolent lifestyle just by allowing a few vibrants in?
Who needs mutants when you have Aztec turbo-killers?
