Talk about a right of passage, Mexican drug cartels expects new recruits to prove themselves by forcing them to eat the heart of victims they kill.
Drug lords and gangs can be very skeptical about the level of trust that they put into each of their members, so in an attempt to prove their loyalty, they must eat a human heart. The Michoacán state of Mexico is one that faces constant threats of violence from dangerous gangs who have broken off into different factions that all want to claim rights over the city in Mexico.
Leaders of La Familia Michoacana and Knights Templar, the two Mexican drug cartels wants potential new members to go to extreme lengths to show they are “worthy” of their operation. The two affiliated gangs were originally led by Nazario Moreno, who also went by the name “The Crazy One,” a man whose name alone expresses his chaotic means of controlling his factions. Moreno who was officially announced dead in, March 2014, but his legacy still lives on as new leaders continue practice obscene methods. Some of the victims that are chosen or killed may even still be alive during their dismembering.
Alfred Castillo, Michoacan’s Federal Security Commissioner, told local television news programs that cannibalism is not prevalent throughout the city, but there are testimonies that several cases involved have been brought forward.
Although cannibalism is not prevalent the drug cartel problem is. President Obama plans to help aid in the elimination of these groups. If he chooses to send troops or aid in the defense of these groups this could seriously endanger the lives of U.S. military soldiers.
Should President Obama send help? These crimes and practices that these gangs commit are vicious and need to be stopped because Mexico does indeed border the United States. The president stated, “We have offered our desire, our hope to collaborate in this effort. Mexico will be a tireless supporter of the good relationship between two neighbors.” It could be that President Obama is worried about crime spilling over into our country, if it has not already, and he is trying to keep on good terms with the Mexican government. Obama has been trying to aid and show support to other countries governments in an attempt to spread democracy and good relations, a strong strive in rebuilding America’s image.
