They play for keeps in Mexico

You have to say the Mexican drug cartels have a certain kind of macabre style when it comes to sending a message:

Bodies of 7 blindfolded murder victims left on chairs in traffic island

Bodies of 7 blindfolded murder victims left on chairs in traffic island

SEVEN blindfolded murder victims sit in a line of white plastic chairs — on a city centre traffic island. 

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:

“Warning: The same is going to happen to all muggers, car thieves and burglars as well as kidnappers, rapists and blackmailers.”

But the victims’ “crimes” were thought to have been BEGGING — 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.

    An excellent example of street justice for those bludging beggars.
    Anyone that hates welfare should immigrate to Mexico.

    Whose windscreen washer scum are a scourge on South Auckland. They’ve even taken to lurking in some of the carparks. I’m pretty sure there’re laws against it aren’t there?

      There are laws against it and the cops will respond if you call them. It was discovered long ago that essentially window washers are actually just threatening with menace to collect money. I can’t remember what the offense actually is but I’m sure it’s actually a traffic one.

      Notice they never approach cars that have relatively threatening drivers, generally active looking men but will target the elderly and women and especially women with kids in the car.

        Excellent I might just do that next time. At 6’2″ and 120kg I don’t get any problems with them, but I see them approaching little old grannies and it makes my blood boil.

    Thought they were spying for someone, reporting on passing cars?
