The white, sandy beaches and blue waters of beautiful Acapulco, Mexico made it one of the most popular vacation resorts on the list for years. Not anymore. Not if you value your life.
Criminal gangs and drug cartels have now turned Acapulco into one of the most violent areas of Mexico, where it’s becoming more popular to carry a black bag with a pistol for protection, than a beach towel. It’s so bad that the U.S. government has banned its employees from traveling there for any reason, reported the Vallarta Daily News.
As rival drug gangs fight over drug distribution channels, reports of gruesome killings, torture and beheadings by the drug cartels have skyrocketed, including a vendor slain on the beach by a gunman who escaped on a jet ski, and another man executed while drinking a beer at a restaurant near the shore. In the slum area of the city, a 15-year-old girl was found in a blanket, chopped into pieces, with a sign from a drug gang attached to her severed head in a nearby bucket.
Recently, the beheaded bodies of nine men were found dumped on the side of the road near Tixtla, a town about 100 kilometers north of Acapulco, Ildefonso Oritz of Breitbart has reported. The Guerrero State Prosecutor’s Office (Fiscalia de Estado) reported that the bodies showed signs of torture, and there was a drug cartel banner nearby.
In addition, two off-duty Mexican marines, each 27 years old, and eight others were also gunned down in Acapulco over the weekend.
Breitbart Texas also recently reported that the Mexican state of Guerrero is the same area where 43 students were kidnapped by police officers and turned over to the drug cartel members, who reportedly incinerated them in an open air pit.
In January, the Vallarta Daily News reported that Mexican officials have responded to the violence by lining the city’s coastal boulevard with heavily armed police and soldiers, and the state prosecutor, Xavier Olea declared that the area had been made “bulletproof.” But a week later, three young men – two waiters and a vendor – were gunned down in broad daylight after they met with an “underworld” figure.
A man who works as a bodyguard for someone with underworld connections admitted, “There are 300 paid killers on the costera,” and said “A decent killer makes about 5,000 pesos ($275) per week.”
We are sharing the photo of the beheaded bodies which Breitbart published. Seeing the photo and understanding the true nature of the drug cartels explains why President-elect Donald Trump launched his campaign with concerns about drugs and violence coming across the Mexico/USA border.
