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 — 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.
