Report: Mexican cartel members savagely kill five young men seeking work

News of an horrific scenario emerged out of Mexico last week, as it was revealed that give young men reportedly in search of employment were violently slaughtered by members of a drug cartel, as the New York Post reports.

Citing a report from El Universal, the group of friends – who ranged in age from 19 to 22 – were persuaded with fake job offers to unwittingly meet up with gang members who then savagely murdered them on camera.

Harrowing scenario

Reporting from Mexico indicates that the men were lured into connecting with individuals who turned out to be members of the Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG) cartel.

The group is known for its forceful recruitment methods which, if unsuccessful, can lead those who refuse the overtures to be killed.

Thus far, investigators believe that the “strongest hypothesis” for what occurred is that the young males made contact with a center hoping to find jobs, but as it turned out, the call center was operated by CJNG members as a means to identify potential recruits.

The call center typically advertises opportunities for high-paying positions with fringe benefits, but the jobs do not actually exist and are used as bait to deceive young people into joining the cartel's ranks.

Grisly murders chronicled on video

Adding an especially gruesome twist to the tragic fate of these five men is the fact that their barbaric deaths – and the torture that preceded them – were captured on video which was then released online.

It was reported that on Wednesday, police in Mexico discovered the property at which the video appeared to have been filmed.

Four bodies that had been badly burned as well as decapitated were found therein, and a fifth body was located in a burned-out vehicle in close proximity to the premises.

Prosecutors in Jalisco later shared photographic evidence from the scene which revealed blood staining on the building's floor, scattered shoes, and other signs that the killings occurred there.

Cartel horrors highlighted

Relatives have reportedly identified the deceased men as Roberto Olmeda, Uriel Galvan, Diego Lara, Dante Cedillo, and Jaime Martinez.

The sheer brutality of their deaths has brought to mind prior instances of cartel violence that often involves kidnapping and unspeakable modes of physical attack.

Sadly, the open borders policies promulgated by President Joe Biden and his accomplices in the Democrat Party all but ensure that the activities of the cartels will continue spilling into the United States.

Though the administration earlier this year signaled some degree of openness to Republican calls to classify Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations, the lack of real resolve on the issue demonstrated by Biden to date does not engender much hope that a real crackdown is imminent, and the resulting violence and lawlessness is likely to persist.
