Blogger on Mexico Cartel Beheading: “Cannot Kill Us All”

Four social media users now have been killed recently, apparently for tracking drug gangs.

Another blogger has been decapitated, purportedly in retaliation for postings about drug cartels, prompting users of social network sites to unite in their stance against the gangs.

..The gruesome slaying on Wednesday is believed to be the fourth since early September in which a drug cartel killed people in Nuevo Laredo for what they said online.

“This happened to me for not understanding that I shouldn’t report on the social networks,” said a placard left with the man’s body at a busy intersection in Nuevo Laredo, according to The Houston Chronicle.

Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo, Texas, has been dominated for about the last two years by the violent Zetas drug cartel.

The victim was described as 35 and identified on social networking sites by the nickname El Rascatripas or “belly scratcher.”
