Anti-Kidnapping Consultant Kidnapped

By Wyatt Earp | December 16, 2008


Hopefully, the people responsible are found and eradicated quickly.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico — An American anti-kidnapping consultant was kidnapped in Mexico, according to the Houston-based security firm he works for.

Felix Batista was abducted outside a restaurant December 10 in Saltillo, the capital of Mexico’s Coahuila state, the firm said.

The former U.S. military officer is a contract consultant for ASI Global LLC and was in Mexico “on personal business,” ASI Global President Charlie LeBlanc told CNN.

He said the FBI is investigating the incident along with Mexican authorities. (H/T - CNN)

This really isn’t funny, but Ace had a great line when posting about this story:

Let’s hope Batista is released unharmed.

    Randal - Mexico. Shouldn’t we just stay the Hell away?

    Captain - It’s certainly ironic.

    Old Soldier - I would think a rep from the company would be traveling with an entire tactical team. I guess not.

    Fun fact, more people are killed in Mexico by drug related violence each day then are killed by all types of violence in Iraq, on that same day.

    Cancun anyone?

    Guess he forgot to look over his shoulder.

    Never wanted to go to Mexico and definitely don’t want to, now.

    Marvin - Surprising that some of The Love Boat passengers weren’t murdered.

    RT - And you especially don’t want to drink the water.
