MICHAEL WEBSTER: INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER. Sunday Oct 19, 2008 at

trafficking and terror has become a way of life in Mexico. U.S.
Mexican border cities from Brownsville Texas to San Diego
California continue to be most affected by cartel-related
violence; other U.S. cities are also being targeted with drug
trafficking violence and related terror.
Mexican drug cartel gangs and their
surrogate’s terror is reaching deep into the states.
The recent home invasion robbery and
kidnapping of a young 6 year old American boy in Las Vegas
Nevada is a in our face example of what is happening right here
in our own neighborhoods.
The Las Vegas recovered ( lucky to be
alive) kidnapped boy's Grandfather is a known drug dealer and is
believed by authorities to be involved with Mexican drug cartels
and other underworld figures in a drug trafficking operation
that covers the entire Southwestern United States.
Just recently in El Paso Texas
just across the border from Juarez Mexico one of the most
dangerous and deadly places on earth several law enforcement
agencies led by ATF and the FBI are investigating a "possible
car bomb" that injured a woman on Friday morning and rocked a
middle-class neighborhood in West El Paso.
Shelby County Alabama in a Birmingham
suburb, authorities released few details in the case of five men
who were found slain in an apartment. They say the men appear to
have been bound with duct tape and their throats were slashed.
Very similar to known tactic’s used by Mexican drug cartel gangs
and their American gang surrogates.
drug gangs according to DEA operative who wants to remain
anonymous says, “investigators close to the Shelby county
murders of five Mexican males was carried out by Mexican drug
gangs or their surrogates and is very likely related to drugs
and cash.” DEA
agents say that the cartels' incursions into the United States
are spurring more secondary crimes, such as shootings,
kidnapping, and murders.
These terrorist type assassinations
are demonstrating the dangerous reach of the Mexican drug
cartels and how it now goes very deep into Middle America and
are reported to be killing, robbing, torturing, kidnapping, and
threatening Americans and others at an alarming rate.
These gang members are known to be
attacking Americans all over the U.S. Recently it came to light
that a gang operation of this type was uncovered operating on
the east coast from New York to Florida robbing known drug
dealers of both their drugs and cash. These attacks were pulled
off all up and down the East Coast, federal investigators said.
Investigators said the suspects used
terrorist tactics of simulated drowning techniques (water
bordering) as well as pliers applied to the male victim’s
genitals to learn where and when millions in cash and drugs
shipments were being made. Police say this type of crime is
happening on both sides of the U.S Mexican border.
Mexican drug cartels
through their segregate organizations control the lucrative
methamphetamine trade, as the arrival of purer Mexican ice
methamphetamine has replaced locally produced powder meth,
according to the US Department of Justice.
In Florida a horrifying story
describes a little girl who, after being taken to the Florida
panhandle from Mexico, resisted while being raped, and was
subsequently made an example of, by being beheaded in front of
other girls who were being held to be raped. The girls then were
made to watch by being left in the room with the little girl’s
headless body for several hours.

Office appears at the 2 hours 18 minutes and 20 seconds mark in
the official Florida House of Representatives recording of this
hearing as follows:
testimony on House Bill 287g – Immigration legislation – Florida
House of Representatives – State Affairs Committee - April 8,
become the latest battleground for Mexican drug cartels.
"Their idea is to control
the whole economic process of production and distribution," said
Georgina Sanchez, an independent security consultant in Mexico
and executive director of a public safety policy institute.
many areas of the United States the cartels have entered into
partnerships with local gangs, in others they have directly
assumed control of local drug distribution, analysts say.
Georgia, where Atlanta is located is over 1,000 miles from our
U.S. - Mexico border. They have already had nine drug-related
kidnappings this year. DEA agents raided a home and
charged three men, all illegal aliens, with kidnapping and
conspiracy to distribute cocaine after finding that they had
bound and chained the victim
to a wall in a
basement in the town of Lilburn
and beat him for nearly a week in an
effort to collect $300,000 in drug debt.
The biggest worry for U.S.
citizens and the big concern for local law enforcement groups is
that the cartels bring with them violent methods honed during
furious cartel wars in Mexico that have left thousands dead
already this year. In recent years, Mexican drug violence has
reached new heights, with beheadings, videotaped executions
broadcast on the Internet, and the targeting and killings of top
Mexican law enforcement officials.

Gwinnett D.A. said this is not a blip. This is significant in
what’s going on here. U.S. Attorney for the northern part of
Georgia said, we are about to see the extreme violence that is
happening south of the border happen here in America.
It’s more violent there than it is in Baghdad or Afghanistan.

Los Zetas paramilitary surrogates allegedly attacked and
slaughtered an American in Phoenix Ariz. Police say the
attackers were dressed in black military like combat uniforms
very similar to known Mexican cartel paramilitary gangs.

Federal, State and Local law
enforcement officers believe there are many more violent crimes
being committed here in the states by drug related Mexican drug
cartels and their surrogates and Americans are only hearing
about a very few. But as a DEA official said recently, “I feel
this is but the beginning and that the dangers of the menus of
the Mexican drug organizations is something America will be
dealing with for a long time to come.”
