In a shocking interview on Mexican television, a former hit man who was involved in torturing and executing people for his cartel, Los Rojos, says that the cartels would feast on the remains of the dead bodies as a part of “initiating” new recruits:
He started as a hawk when he was 16 years old, later a “store” (selling drugs) and later as a hit man, as an escort to a family of a head of the plaza.
As a hitman, he had six months of training in the Sierra de Morelos, accompanied by around 500 people, where he was taught to torture and kill people. “If a person did not serve for work, he also killed himself … they made us eat human flesh”. the confessions of an assassin, the diary of a man who corrupted politicians of all parties and policemen of all levels, today is 23 years old and has been a hitman for 7 years, he started at 16. Since childhood he has led a life full of violence.
‘Awake with Loret’ had access to interview a character who has committed atrocities that are part of the mechanism of horror used by organized crime to literally take the power in the municipalities that would correspond to the state. Every day we report the death balance of that mechanism and we have to update the number of murders.
We have to warn him that the story contains very strong, raw, frightening expressions. We believe that it is a journalistic document that reflects, exhibits and denounces all of this, but we know that what you will hear may be offensive and may leave a very strong impression.
The content of his story, disgusting as it is, also serves as a kind of guide to understand what happens, to not stay in the report of deaths and deepen the phenomenon. We hope it will also help those responsible to confront it to define ways to end this epidemic of violence.
In the team of ‘Despierta con Loret’ the implications of transmitting this special report were discussed at length; consider that the interview is a unique journalistic document of the social, political and criminal decomposition that has sunk large parts of the country in the worst crisis of violence that is remembered and a guide to understand the horror we have seen in the last decade in Mexico .
The impunity that has filled the country with mourning and that has left thousands and thousands of disappeared. A hitman, a hit man, explains how the machinery works. Organized crime funds campaigns of mayoral candidates, by good or under threat of death, to them and their families.
When they win, they charge them in monthly payments of public money and end up incorporating them into the business, with profits for both parties, and if not, kill them. They take over resources for public works with violence, thereby enlarging the business and perpetuating the vicious circle, subjecting authorities, companies and citizens. They give armed protection to the elected authorities, co-opt the police, put them at their service or kill them.
It is also a story of how any teenager in any small town in the country is recruited as a hawk to warn of the presence of police, is qualified as a drug dealer, becomes an assassin, is trained in the mountains with hundreds of young people, of whom only the most bloodthirsty will survive, those capable of passing wild, inhuman tests.
That young man graduates as an extortionist, torturer and murderer of hundreds of people. A journey traveled from 16 to 23 years of age. (source)
This is not a surprise. Cannibalism is increasing and is directly tied to the drug trafficking and is now considered a cartel standard initiation practice. Even worse, some of these horrible actions are even being directly supported by American Protestant Christians as a part of their “missionary work” against the Catholic Church.
The evils seen here are what the Church with the Spanish fought against in the conquest of Mexico and the Americas. As the Faith has declined, been marginalized, and in some cases outright rejected in particular thanks to American Evangelical missions, Mexico has not become “more Christian” but has returned more towards the ancient paganism of the Aztecs and other civilizations. The actions of the cartels reflect this in their behaviors.
