Cartel Gunmen Silence Star Witness in Trial of Los Zetas Boss in Mexico

Gunmen acting under orders of a ruthless cartel executed one of Mexico’s star witnesses who played a key role in the prosecution of top capos in Mexico, including the leader of Los Zetas.

While authorities tried to downplay the May 29 shooting where three men having lunch died at a shopping plaza near Mexico City, that country’s Proceso Magazine has identified one of the victims as a protected witness known to authorities by the name “Karen.”

The murder serves as another example of the overwhelming power of the criminal organization that remains one of the most ruthless and powerful syndicates in Mexico and continues to reach deep into the United States far beyond the border cities.

Karen is the name given to a former Zeta hitman who had been testifying about having worked with former top Zeta boss Miguel Angel “Z-40 o El 40, L40” Trevino Morales in the early 2000s which is a time when Los Zetas were still part of the Gulf Cartel and initially set their control over the border city of Nuevo Laredo.

While Trevino Morales is often called Z-40 by news outlets, in the early days of Los Zetas, Trevino was known as an L, Lobo, or Cobra because he was not one of the original military deserters that made up Los Zetas.

Black Panther Shabazz to Charleston: Finish the Mission of Killing Slave Masters (Video)

Yeah, that’ll help.

ee Stranahan at Breitbart.com reports that Black Panther ex-chairman Malik Shabazz urged a Charleston crowd Tuesday to finish a mission to kill all the “slave masters.”

After leading a chant of “Black power! By any means!” at a New Black Panther rally near the scene of last week’s Charleston church massacre, Shabazz told the story of Denmark Vesey, who planned a failed slave revolt and helped found the Mother Emanuel Church where white supremacist Dylann Roof killed nine black churchgoers.

A USA Today article on Vesey’s planned revolt in 1822 noted that the plan was to “seize Charleston’s arsenals and guard houses, kill the Governor, set fire to the city, and kill every white man they saw.”?

“Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill all the slave masters in the state,” Shabazz declared to applause. “Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill every last one of them and kill all of their g*dd*mn families… We’re out of Denmark Veseys, and we need some new Demark Veseys today.”

Facebook post about ‘killing white people’ was a joke, Plano woman says

“I’m down for randomly killing white people, Rs,” Pace had posted. (Rs is sometimes used as an abbreviation for “real [expletive],” to mean someone is serious.) “I’ll gladly walk into a pet store or Starbucks and just start bussin,” she wrote Thursday, adding two smiley faces.

Home Depot was slammed on social media over the weekend after a Plano woman who claimed to be an employee posted on Facebook that she was “down for randomly killing white people” in response to last week’s massacre of nine black people at a Charleston, S.C., church.

But the woman, Patrice Pace, 23, who is black, says she doesn’t actually work for Home Depot and was just joking on her personal page among her friends. The national chain said it can’t find “any evidence” that Pace has ever worked there.

She said Sunday that she didn’t know why she picked Home Depot. It was just random, she said.

“Same reason it says I live in Jamaica, like, I don’t know,” she said. “I’m pretty sure Home Depot’s getting plenty of phone calls and looking through their employee list looking for Patrice Pace.”

Members of 39ers street gang indicted in sprawling racketeering case; group accused of 12 murders

The indictment marks the latest in a series of racketeering cases that authorities have brought against street gangs in New Orleans as part of a targeted effort to bring down the city’s high murder rate, which long has been fueled by the distribution of narcotics and retaliatory gang shootings.

Federal prosecutors announced a sprawling indictment Friday against a New Orleans street gang accused of racketeering, trafficking crack cocaine and heroin, and committing at least a dozen murders in the city since 2010.

The gang, said to be known as the 39ers, had a penchant for punishing rivals with a .223-caliber assault rifle, a weapon its members referred to as “Monkey Nuts” because of its double-drum magazine that held more than 100 rounds of ammunition, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The 45-count indictment, handed up last week in U.S. District Court, outlines a murderous reign in which the 39ers frequently traveled to Houston to buy heroin and returned to New Orleans to sell it in the 9th Ward and some of the city’s Uptown neighborhoods.

All 13 defendants, many of whom previously have been charged in state court, are accused of participating in at least one murder apiece. They face life in prison if convicted.

Australia: Territory streets bathed in blood

Theirs is a subculture built on drugs, money and crime; shaped by the lyrics of American gangster rappers; loathed by the white northern suburb Darwin majority and understood only by their peers.

The homes clump into micro-towns of communal disadvantage and normalised dysfunction where boys and young men, mostly indigenous, stay with sometimes helpless, sometimes well-meaning or often times uncaring relatives.

[…]

They exist outside their world as faces on news sites, sticking up their middle fingers, posing with knives and drugs on social media; they are the car thieves, inhuman, to be feared, despised and brought to justice

At least Facebook tells us so. Northern Territory Police’s page even carried a conversation about using these boys for target practice until the comments were discovered and deleted.

Fabian Brock, 25, fell into this subculture and it cost his life. The killing has captured the public like few other Darwin tragedies because of its extreme violence, the sort of thing Darwinites read about happening in Western Sydney.

Big list of drug-induced killers

Charleston church shooter may be just the latest.

As WND has reported, Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof was a known drug user who was caught with the powerful mind-altering narcotic Suboxone when apprehended by police during an incident on Feb. 28.

Suboxone is used to treat addiction to opioid drugs such as heroin. It’s adverse effects include anxiety, irritability, depersonalization, confusion, suicidal thoughts and irrational, sometimes violent behavior.

Other drugs linked to mass killers have more often been geared toward treating mental illness. According to a data set of U.S. mass shootings from 1982-2012 prepared by Mother Jones magazine, of 62 mass shootings carried out by 64 shooters, the majority of the shooters (41) were noted to have signs of possible mental illness — the precise kinds of mental illnesses that psychotropic medications are prescribed for.

It is a well-documented fact that in the 1980s, a shift occurred in the direction of treating the mentally ill. Rather than institutionalize them, the preferred method was to “mainstream” them, encouraging them to function in society while being treated with a mind-numbing array of new anti-depressants being developed by the pharmaceutical industry.

Death trap Mexico must probe migrant attacks: Amnesty

“They left us with nothing. We had to give everything before they would kill us, because they wanted to shoot at us or cut us up with their machetes,” Alfredo Parras, a 27-year-old Honduran who survived, told AFP.

Amnesty International warned of a “shocking spike” of violence against migrants in Mexico and urged authorities to investigate two separate attacks against 200 of them.

“Mexico has become a death trap for migrants, with vicious criminal gangs at every corner waiting for their opportunity to attack them for a few dollars,” said Erika Guevara-Rosas, the human rights group’s Americas director.

She said Mexican authorities are “more eager to deport people than to save lives.”

Amnesty cited two recent cases in the northwestern state of Sonora, near the US border, and Veracruz in the east in which armed groups attacked more than 200 migrants, including children, leaving “several” dead.

An official in the federal prosecutor’s office said the Sonora case is being investigated but that no probe was opened in Veracruz because nobody filed a complaint.

On June 2 in Sonora gunmen dressed in military gear opened fire on 120 migrants, most from Central America, the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Three people were killed while 15 others, including 13 migrants, who had been kidnapped were rescued, the official said. Two burned vehicles were found at the scene.

Ex-Boy Scout: I killed troop leader who raped me (Video)

Court breaks into applause after man recounts stabbing.

A former Boy Scout confessed in emotionally charged court testimony to killing his former troop leader, but said it was due to the repeated sexual abuse and rape he suffered at the hands of the man, beginning at the tender age of 8.

“From the time I was 8 years old until I was 12, I was sexually assaulted and raped by Dennis Pegg,” said Clark Fredericks, a former scout who spoke in a tense Newton, New Jersey, courtroom about the reasons for his killing.

Pegg also served as a Sussex sheriff’s officer, NBC New York reported. He was killed three years ago and Fredericks admitted to the crime.

Fredericks said he kept silent about the rapes, despite the fact his best friend, Jeff, was allegedly one of Pegg’s victims, too. Jeff committed suicide in 1983, Fredericks said, the news outlet reported.

Horrifying rise in child human sacrifice in Uganda at the hands of witch doctors

Snatched on their way to school then castrated or decapitated.

‘Hundreds’ of Ugandan children are being sacrificed every year by witch doctors who have convinced the country’s superstitious elite that mutilating them will make them even richer.

Shockingly, these ‘gruesome crimes against children’ are ‘expected to rise’ with the 2016 Ugandan elections fast approaching.

Wealthy businessmen are paying traditional healers ‘thousands of pounds’ to hunt down impoverished children and harvest their body parts, which they believe can cure impotence and boost their fertility, a children’s charity told MailOnline.

These witch doctors sever limbs and remove their genitals after snatching them on the way home from school or as they go to fetch water for their family. Their dismembered remains are later discovered in forests and building sites.

Cruel witch doctors do not use their severed body parts to craft a magic potion, but claim to ‘offer them’ to the spirits who commanded them to carry out the brutal attacks.

In February, Uganda’s government created a National Action Plan to stop the murders and approved a bill to regulate healers – some of whom were practising as real doctors.

But the businessmen who pay thousands of pounds for the sick rituals are rarely prosecuted because witch doctors refuse to give up their clients.

The boys they castrate suffer the crippling after-effects of blood clots, a dangerous decrease of bone density and spinal fractures their entire lives.

Mexican Cartel Members Blow Up Child And Rival (Video)

A newly surfaced video shows a new level of savagery by Mexican drug cartel members, as they strap sticks of dynamite to a child and to one of their rivals, only to light the fuses and blow them up. (WARNING: GRAPHIC)

The video was initially published by the Mexican news agency Reforma, who leaked the video that Mexican authorities found in the cell phone of Heriberto “El Gringo” Acevedo Cardenas, a top commander with the fearsome Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion. Acevedo died in a firefight with authorities on March 23 along with three of his bodyguards, Mexico’s SinEmbargo.Mx reported.

The video shows a boy who appears to be in his pre-teenage years crying moments before his execution. The boy has his hands tied behind his back and has a stick of dynamite strapped to his neck.
