In Mexico, Good Guys NEVER Win

Posted by redsatellite on February 5, 2009

If I were you, I’d skip that vacation to Cancun. Down in Mexico…the bad guys always win. Yesterday, the anti-drug chief turned up dead….after ONE DAY on the job.

A recently retired Mexican army general whose bullet-riddled body was found Tuesday near Cancun had taken over as the area’s top antidrug official less than 24 hours earlier, officials said.

Retired Gen. Mauro Enrique Tello Quiñonez, his aide and a driver were tortured before being killed, said Quintana Roo state prosecutor Bello Melchor Rodriguez y Carrillo. He said there was no doubt Tello and the others were victims of organized crime.

“The general was the most mistreated,” Rodriguez said at a Tuesday night news conference monitored by El Universal newspaper. “He had burns on his skin and bones in his hands and wrists were broken.”

An autopsy revealed Tello also suffered broken knees and was shot 11 times, Mexico City’s Excelsior newspaper said.

Gee, how pleasant.

Why would anyone take that job? I mean…unless Mexican President, Felipe Calderón, sends in a MASSIVE force of National Guard to eradicate the drug lords and the drug cartels in places like Acapulco and Cancun, nothing is going to change.
