Horrific Video Shows Mexican Drug Cartel Decapitating Five Members of Rival Gang

Rachel Quigley, Daily Mail (London), June 29, 2012

A gruesome video depicting the decapitation of five members of a Mexican drug cartel by a rival gang has been posted on the internet in the latest atrocity in the raging battle over drug-smuggling routes.

The chilling, three-minute video is the latest stunt in the deadly feud – which has already claimed a number of similarly gruesome deaths.

The video, which was posted on the cartel-tracking blog Mundonarco.com, shows masked members of the Gulf cartel standing behind five shirtless members of the Zetas cartel, who have black ‘Zs’ painted on their chests.

The masked men are wielding machetes and slap their prisoners, who are kneeling below them, as they each state their name for the camera.

When they are asked who sent them, they each reply ‘Z-40’.

40 is the name given to Miguel Angel Treviño Morales, the Zeta cartel’s second-in-command.

The man shooting the video tells them: ‘You find yourselves here because you came to f*** us. Pay attention, men.’

The camera then shows three of the men start the grizzly, slow process of beheading them as they hack and saw at their necks with the machetes.

As the men plead for mercy, the man shooting the video says: ‘This is how all your filthy people are going to end.’

When the process is over, after almost two painstaking minutes, the masked men hold the severed heads up like they are trophies.

The fate of only three of the five men is revealed.

Mundonarco.com states the video was shot in Río Bravo, Mexico, along the U.S. border.

The Zetas were founded by former soldiers who defected from the Mexican military in 1998 to work as hired killers for drug traffickers.

They have since carved out their own smuggling empire, expanded massively across Mexico and diversified into kidnapping, extortion and theft of crude oil.

On June 10, the dismembered bodies of 11 men and three women were discovered in the sugar-cane farming town of Ciudad Mante in the south of Tamaulipas state, which borders on Texas.

Tamaulipas has been one of the bloodiest battlegrounds in Mexico’s drug war.

Just five days earlier, Mexican police found seven dismembered bodies in Pacific coast state Sinaloa, along with a message accusing authorities of cooperating with drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman – the country’s most-wanted man.

The bodies were discovered stuffed into 13 black garbage bags in the early hours of June 5 and dumped on a footpath in a residential area, authorities said.

Guzman, who has long been recognized as Mexico’s most powerful drug capo, was included this year on the Forbes list of the world’s richest people, with an estimated fortune of $1 billion.

He escaped from a Mexican prison in 2001 in a laundry truck and has a $7 million bounty on his head.

In January, Los Zetas released a video showing the hanging of two members of the gulf cartel and last month 49 decapitated bodies were dumped along a highway by the same gang.

The U.S. has offered a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of 40.

In total, around 55,000 people have died in drug related violence and more than 5,000 have disappeared in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon took office in December 2006.

Last week, the U.S. State Department warned American travelers to Mexico to beware of possible violent retaliation after the arrest of alleged Zetas drug cartel associates within the U.S.

Despite the warning not specifying the Los Zetas cartel by name, the government warned U.S. citizens to be on the guard for ‘anti-American’ violence after the arrest of members of a ‘Transnational Criminal Organisation’ (TCO).

The alert specifically mentions the State of Tamaulipas and came a day after seven alleged associates of the Los Zetas crime group were arrested in New Mexico and Oklahoma for laundering millions through horse breeding and racing.

    When this starts happening on our side of the border (borders are racist), we’ll be accused of racism for linking immigrant communities with drug violence.  We’ll be told we need to “do more to undo” our White privilege that makes us believe that our country is “ours” and that laws written by dead White males should be applied to vibrant and Diverse peoples. Failure to “adjust” to a changing America will be a hate crime.

    •  How much longer do you think there is going to be an “america” at the rate we are going?

      • Church_of_Jed

        We lost America in 1957, and now we’re seeing the proof.

        • APaige

          Why 1957? I always think of 1965 and the change in Immigration law…but there is still time to change. We just have to continue on getting the truth out in the open…organize and be prepared for when the rest of white people wake up and notice it’s not a social contruct.

          • Church_of_Jed

            Eisenhower nationalized the Arkansas Guard and we officially became occupied states for first time since 1877.

          The Civil Rights Act of 1964 really got the ball rolling, so I’m picking 1964.

          • WhitesRdumb

            (edit) opps, I thought you put 1864.

            I agree that the unCivil War was the beginning, but there were other milestones. The formation of the Feral Reserve Bank in 1913, the gold confiscation order of 1933, the Snivel Rights Act of 1957, the Snivel Civil Rights Act of 1964, and now Obogo’s health care tax are other milestones.

          • Epiminondas

            You mean “millstones”.

          • The Reptiles accomplished a lot back then witht he civil Rites Act as wellas the Immigartion Act. The Civil Rites was written by Norman Podhortez,a Trotskyite who turned Neo-con. He was so anti-racist,God bless him,like so many of his species!! (Eye roll)

    Mexicans decapitate other Mexicans in Mexico.  Why do we have to pony up five megabucks to fish out the doer?

       The guys that got their head chopped off were probably CIA agents competing with the drug cartel to put drugs into black and brown neighborhoods.

      •  Yeah, I know.  Not one of my greatest hits.  But I’m sure it would go over well with the electorate, to put down that you approve of the CIA running in crack to finance its black hat black suitcase black ops budget off the backs of black American crack addicts , if I ever run for office.

  • But…but…all cultures are created equal and are of equal worth, right?  Who are we to judge?  /idiot leftist off

    I’m suprised Amren linked to the actual video.  But to be honest, it’s quite tame compared to some of the beheading videos that are floating around out there.

  • And yet the border remains wide open for these animals to seek sanctuary in our country.

  • They are probably already here.

  • KenelmDigby

    Over the years I’ve written, written and written here on Amren about my disdain for mass third world immigration into the western world.
     Many might accuse me of paranoia, irrationality, racial prejudice, xenophobia, fanaticism etc. I’m sure the leftists absolutely hate me. On and on and on , I’ve warned (or pontificated) about the ‘political class’ and their covert agenda (perhaps the Peter Sutherland story bore me out), but dear reader and all ‘Kenelm Digby’ haters throughout the internet, I only offer up this video (and the scores like it) as my humble submission in my defence, if I offer up no other evidence – no verbiage, no essays, no ‘facts’, no ‘figures’.
     One can only wish that forced viewing of these videos was made compulsory for all the rabid leftists and immigrationists out there  – from the effete Bollinger and beef-steak high-living, fat bellied, priveleged and flatulent WSJ and ‘Economist’ staffers, dried-up, nasty little ,ugly faced shrews like Jane Elliott (a prime representative of the ‘inter-sex’), upwards to the ‘masked, howling thugs’ (to quote Jared Taylor’s wonderful phrase), who delight in physically attacking scholars they disagree with.

    A blogger at Huffington Post informed me that De Koonig, one of the great abstract impressionist painters, was an illegal immigrant, so I guess that settles it. They say “you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs,” so I guess a corollary would be that you can’t get your abstract painters without letting in a few decapitators as well.

    • beelzebuddy

      I saw a baby make a pretty cool abstract impression in his diaper yesterday. 

  • IstvanIN

    This shows how uncivilized these creatures are.  Rather like muslims. Why saw off the head, why not  just use an axe or machete and get it over with?   They are not in any way, shape or form our fellow humans.

  • KenelmDigby

    In the middle ages the English employed axemen to do this job – they prided themselves in severing the head from the neck with one swif, sure stoke of a sharp axe.

  • ageofknowledge

    They are already arresting corrupt Hispanic politicians regularly on misuse of funds and bribery charges in the U.S..

    This will be the next evolution of diversity Americans have to look forward to.

    Think of it as a gift from the modern liberals.

    “The Zetas were founded by former soldiers who defected from the Mexican
    military in 1998 to work as hired killers for drug traffickers.”

    Just think what will happen when blacks from the US Military defect to their drug gangs.

  • WhitesRdumb


    You forgot to mention the free medical care they will receive from Obama if some white person (American) shoots them in self defense.

     Abstract art was very popular in Germany from 1919 to 1933, but so was prostitution involving human feces and urine.

    • In 1933 things began looking Up or the Germans as they began to clean up the trash that had settled on their country. The filth,the excrement,the feces…cleaned up. America needs a good cleaning too.

  • slobotnavitch

    It’s comforting to know we have such people skulking around our southern borders and even gaining entrance to the US.

    We might do well to make the border with Mexico and a zone two miles wide into US territory a free-fire zone, with open season on all persons within that zone.  Varmint hunters who now make sport of shooting coyotes, woodchucks, prairie-dogs, and crows would be delighted to try their hands at picking off illegals at ranges in excess of 1,000 yards.

  • SStephens

    Its a little too late for that isnt it?  Theyre crossing the border en mass every day.

  • Kurt Plummer


    If they really wanted to eliminate all these Mexican drugs trafficing to the US and raise tax trillions then legalize drugs in America set age limits and tax it 50%. Prohibition never worked in America plus these foreigners capitalizing on the US drug business is ethically and immorally wrong anyway.America should be self contained entirely legal or illegal.

    No.  Even ‘the least dangerous’ of drugs, marijuana, is now anywhere from 150 to 200 percent stronger than the stuff that was tested in the 1980s and found to be ‘mostly harmless’.  This means that the THC and other psychoactive drugs are now much more potent and the ability of MJ to induce dangerous episodes of psychotic, violent, behavior is far higher and lasts longer.

    Especially coming off a high.

    Genetically, we have known for the better part of three decades that the cannibinoids in the drug also attack the histones in the cell which act as the ‘third wire’ around which the helix of DNA is wound.  Disrupting the correct production of histone filaments causes them to be short or long in ways that cause the rest of the genes to misalign and not mate up.

    The cell attempts to repair itself but additional uses only furthers the damage and while messing with your genes is a very longterm dangerous thing for everything from brain function to cardio-pulmonary risks; what is _beyond the pale_ of acceptable behavior is the certainty that what you do to yourself has epigenetic followthru in subsequent generations as well.

    And that’s just MJ, the ‘harmless’ drug.  You legalize it and there will be an instant complaints of ‘Well, why not coke, heroine, yadda de yadda yadda…’.  Across the whole spectrum of drugs whose psychotic sideeffects and potential for violence are truly well known.

    1.  We could stop all of this with an effective border fence.  It would be cheap and it would stop both drugs and illegals with as little as a twenty foot ditch lined with mines.
    2.  We should -never- let a minority of fools who risk their bodies to get high to dictate the policies of the majory which effect the national health of the country.
    3.  It’s past time to remove the ‘victimless crime’ status of drugs and stop denying their association with the lower IQ ethnic groups.  It hurts our future.  It hurts our present.  And we should institute _mandatory_ treatment regimes with drugs that deny the brain any pleasure from their use.  If the user is caught with this crap in their system, they should be treated with the drug and if they persist, they should be treated as chronic felons.  Three strikes and you’re executed.

    When it steals billion$ in criminal prosecution, jail building and medical costs that don’t have to spent on the worthless but should be dedicated to our children, it’s time to stop infantalizing the criminals and stop kidding ourselves.

    You would never take drugs that required a prescription if you weren’t sick.  Why ingest something that doesn’t have -any- justifiable use?  Stay off the slippery damn slope.

    And punish, severely, those who would dance across it in defiance of the society which they demand pay for their foolishness.

    • I actually burst out laughing when you described marijuana as a dangerous drug. Alcohol has repeatedly been declared the most dangerous drug ever used by mankind. The violence, alcohol poisoning, liver damage, and drunk driving make it the bane of humanity. 
      You have absolutely no understanding of drugs at all. We had no drug policy for hundreds of years and got along just fine. Prohibition does not work, from the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden to our current drug policies, prohibition does not and will never work.

  • Frosty_The_White_Man

    So you guys moderate folks for talking about sexual techniques but link to beheading videos?

    • aandrews


    • With the video, you have some prior warning about what’s there, and those with squeamish stomachs know not to watch.  Meanwhile, we don’t need AR to become “pornified.”

  • Oil Can Harry

    No, the Manson family.

      It would probably be safer to have the Manson family living next to you than those Mexicans.

  • drofmanythings

    These ultra-violent Mexican drug lords are the same despicable people who received two thousand high powered, untraceable weapons from the Obama administration, which have killed over 300 Mexicans so far. Losing Brian Terry was the tip of the violent iceberg. The Mexican press is excoriating Obama and Holder, and this is why they are stonewalling Issa. They can’t lose the Hispanic vote because of Fast and Furious. Holder will likely fall on his sword after the election. And I thought progressives love Hispanics and hate guns. My, my, I must have been wrong on that.

    • aandrews

       “…which have killed over 300 Mexicans so far.”

      Yes, but you have to keep in mind that, as Bill Maher pointed out, “…those 200 dead Mexicans would’ve been dead even if we hadn’t sold them guns; they would’ve gotten the guns somewhere else.  So is it really a scandal?” (time 1:04)


      • drofmanythings

        Bill Maher? I know sarcasm when I hear it. Making a bad situation far worse ON PURPOSE is always a bad idea. Fast and Furious was to make people so furious they would limit gun sales.  As with all things Obama, unintended consequences tend to be worse than the problem addressed. 

  • patriotdad76

    This is more than just drug violence.

    These are also likely members of the Mexican death cult – which is some sort of satanic religion with its roots in Aztec culture.

    These people are true subhumans.
