Nine Americans -- Including Six Children -- Slaughtered in Mexico, Likely In a Drug Cartel Ambush

Many more missing, probably kidnapped for ransom -- or worse.

At least six children and three women, all Americans with ties to Utah, were killed in a daylight ambush in Northern Mexico on Monday, likely by cartel gunmen. The family reports that more than a dozen family members are still missing following the attack on the caravan of three SUVs, believed to have been kidnapped following the massacre.

The victims were all part of the LeBaron family and lived in La Mora, a Mormon fundamentalist community established decades-ago in Mexico's Sonora state as an offshoot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some of the children had been born in Mexico and thus were dual citizens.

...

While early reports have surmised that the cold-blooded murders were carried out by Mexican drug cartels in a tragic case of mistaken identity, the record suggests it's possible that a local drug cartel was targeting the family. A decade ago, two members of the LeBaron family who were known anti-crime activists were shot and killed by a cartel.



Noted sockpuppet and narcissist Pierre Delecto was more measured, because bloodless proceduralism and appeals to cooperation are a liberal technocrat's idea of strength.



The slaughter was so awful, and the signs of Mexico's status as a gangster state so ominous, that even Ben Sasse was impassioned enough to... release a written statement.

My gosh! My hero!

Update:

7 Ann and I are heartbroken for the victims of the horrific attacks in Mexico. Our prayers are with their families who have suffered such an unspeakable tragedy. The U.S. must work with Mexican officials to hold accountable those responsible for this senseless violence.
