As a matter of fact, don’t even mention the word “acid” - especially in Mexico. In the midst of the country’s drug wars, this despicable excuse for a human being was using it to dispose of his rivals.
To say this man needs to be put to death does not even begin to cover it.
Be forewarned: This story is very disturbing.
OJO DE AGUA, Mexico – A Mexican drug suspect has confessed to dissolving the bodies of 300 rivals with corrosive chemicals near the U.S. border, in a claim highlighting the brutality of Mexico’s drug war.
Santiago Meza, known as “The Stew Maker,” told journalists he did away with bodies in industrial drums on the outskirts of the violent city of Tijuana.
Great. Now I’ll never be able to eat stew again.
More than 700 people died in Tijuana last year as rival gangs battled for control of the city’s lucrative drug trade. Many others are missing and believed dead after being abducted.
The suspect, who was paraded before journalists by the army on Friday, said he was paid $600 a week by a breakaway faction of the Arellano Felix cartel to dispose of slain rivals with caustic soda, a highly corrosive substance.
$600 a week? That’s only $31,000 a year! While that probably made Meza a rich fat cat in Mexico, he would be hovering around the poverty line in America.
“They brought me the bodies and I just got rid of them,” Meza said at a construction site where he said he dissolved 300 corpses last year. “I didn’t feel anything.”
It is my sincere hope that Meza feels everything if/when they execute this monster. As bad as this article is, the worst part is when Meza asked for forgiveness:
“May they forgive me,” he said, surrounded by heavily armed soldiers. (H/T - )
