You have to say the Mexican drug cartels have a certain kind of macabre style when it comes to sending a message:
SEVEN blindfolded murder victims sit in a line of white plastic chairs â€” on a city centre traffic island.Â
The horror confronted drivers in crime-ridden Mexico, where drug gangs now enforce their own brand of vigilante law.
Heads swathed in bloodied bandages, the victims were all executed with a bullet to the skull. Notices nailed to the corpses with ice picks read:
â€śWarning: The same is going to happen to all muggers, car thieves and burglars as well as kidnappers, rapists and blackmailers.â€ť
But the victimsâ€™ â€ścrimesâ€ť were thought to have been BEGGING â€” and washing car windscreens at traffic lights.
That is one way to let the window washers know their services aren’t required. Hopefully this won’t be coming to a traffic island in South Auckland anytime soon.
