Man executed outside Mormon chapel


Muc'ul Ajwalil

Recommended Posts

On Tuesday night neighbors from the northern sector of Chihuahua observed with terror when they saw that a man had been killed while tied to the outer fence of a Mormon chapel.

A little after 10 pm in the outer fence of the Mormon chapel located at Paseo de la Universidad and Paseo de Tepehuanes in the neighborhood of Paseos de Chihuahua a man was hanged and then executed by his agressors by firing squad.

The people that observed the body noted that a few minutes after death the body appeared to be crucified in the outer fence but afterwards the heaviness of the body caused it to fall to the floor.

Dozens of elements of different police units arrived at the scene of the crime and cordoned off the area so that the specialists could receive the evidences. The body of a heavy man, who at the moment was not identified, had diverse high caliber bullet impacts primarily to the head.

(translation mine from Diario de Juarez)

Lets pray for the safety of the Saints in Mexico, many of whom risk their lives on a daily basis especially in the north.

Oh my gosh... This news is horrific. As always, we can hope and pray that the family and friends of this man are able to find solace after such a tragedy and that the perpetrators of the act are brought to justice

Like the Gadianton Robbers, the drug gangsters are at war with not just the gov't, but all of established society. The war is very real and has been escalating for years. The answer is not to supinely disarm ourselves (another tangent to this kind of story - had the man been allowed to bear arms, chances are he'd at the least have gone down fighting like Gideon under the sword of Nehor....).

Indeed.... The Citizens of Mexico need to be given arms so they can "take back" their lives and country.

The wicked only have power when the righteous don't or can't do anything.

And it always get's worse before it gets better.... That's war people. So, no need to hear from the bleeding heart liberal.

ATF named the case "Fast and Furious." Surveillance video obtained by CBS News shows suspected drug cartel suppliers carrying boxes of weapons to their cars at a Phoenix gun shop. The long boxes shown in the video being loaded in were AK-47-type assault rifles. So it turns out ATF not only allowed it - they videotaped it.

There was so much opposition to the gun walking, that an ATF supervisor issued an e-mail noting a "schism" among the agents. "Whether you care or not people of rank and authority at HQ are paying close attention to this case...we are doing what they envisioned.... If you don't think this is fun you're in the wrong line of work... Maybe the Maricopa County jail is hiring detention officers and you can get $30,000 ... to serve lunch to inmates..."

On Dec. 14, 2010, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down. ... Two assault rifles ATF had let go nearly a year before were found at Terry's murder.

Officials told the Center that ATF allowed about 1,765 firearms over the 15 months of the operation to pass from gun dealers to the suspected straw buyers that were the accomplices of the gun running ring. Another 233 weapons had been bought by the suspects prior to the ATF operation starting, bringing the total number of guns in the case to 1,998.

Of those, 797 of the guns were eventually recovered as a result of criminal activity on both sides of the border

Yay, the ultimate American fix-all solution!

Seems we have saved your motherland's behind a couple of times with our solution. Maybe next time we won't.

The BofM is an American book, after all; a frontier approach to solutions. I didn't invent any of this. But I happen to agree with it. When the bad guys have all the weapons the outcome is preordained. "Robbers" become far less bold when they face potential "equal force"....

For those that added their political opinions to the story:

In Mexico, the right to bear arms is in their Constitution.

But at the same time, it is very difficult to own a gun in Mexico due to lots of red tape and regulations. Kind of like what you find in gun laws in NY, DC, or Chicago. If you don't like a right in the Constitution, regulate and regulate until it becomes virtually impossible to have a gun. They don't ban the possession of guns because it would be unconstitutional. But they make the laws so that it becomes virtually impossible to own a firearm unless you are rich or have high connections.

My son served his mission in the State of Chijuajua from 7/2007 until 7/2009. He saw horrible things there, but was so impressed with the saints who live and work there in the midst of horror that we can not even imagine. This is so very sad.

If the Gadiantons were truly centered in South-Central Mexico, as many have speculated (Teotihuacan being the center of that there culture), one has to wonder if maybe what we're seeing is a continuation of Gadianton culture. Add a superstructure of the Spanish Padron system to the Gadianton landscape . . . and, voila! . . . Mexico 2011.

While I agree that it is not a complete fix it is a start. Mexicans will rise to the occasion like the French Resistance did during WWII.

yet, at least once I know of peoples in the Book Of Mormon "defeated" their enemy, by submitting to the sword of their enemy. And it was not "equal force" which defeated the Robbers, as you recall, each the Nephites went to face the Robbers the Nephites were defeated, it was not till the Nephites starved the robbers that the Nephites did defeat them.

More weapons is not the answer.

Just what we need more idiots with guns.

People defending their families and lives are not "idiots". The idiots were the bureaucrats who decided to give guns to criminals. "Lie with dogs, rise with fleas."

The real answer is to end the idiotic war on drugs. That's where the profits come from: were drug legal, there would be no cartels, and there would be no reason to kill any one over turf.

Drug usage does not diminish because illegal, nor would it rise because ignored by the law.

The costs of the USmerican war on drugs now includes the sanctity of an LDS chapel. Who can doubt that it will continue to increase in blood and treasure, and destroy the very core of liberty?

And doing away with the right to have a weapon to defend oneself or one's family is? Rather, gun-control itself fuels the fire that burns in Mexico today.

The current gun laws in Mexico are way more stricter then those in the United States, so that's another reason why the cartels are as formidable as they are, since such laws do nothing about the flow of firearms on the black market, regardless.

No, when the Lord loses place in the peoples hearts and minds, then the outcome is set. The wicked have always been a scourge to stir people to remember God (1 Ne 2:24; 2 Ne 5:25, 25:16; Jacob 3:3; 3 Ne 20:28...).

The Lord has fought in the past and has promised to fight in this dispensation the battles of the righteous (D&C 35:14, 98:14,37, 105:14, 109:28...). Which do you put more faith in, the Lord's power or your one-upmanship in a trigger-happy arms race?

D&C 98:13-16

13 And whoso layeth down his life in my cause, for my name

Lehi:

You are many times more likely to kill a family member with that gun than you are the bad guy.

I agree that the so called "War on Drugs" is nonsensical, counterproductive, and lost. The monies spend on it would be cheaper more sensibly, productively, and winnable if spent of rehab.
