FBI Says U.S. Consulate Victims in Mexico Border Town “Targeted”

WASHINGTON — Three people with ties to the U.S. consulate murdered in the violent Mexican town of Ciudad Juarez on Saturday were not victims of a drive-by shooting as first reported, the FBI said today.

“They were certainly targeted,” said special agent Andrea Simmons, an FBI spokeswoman for the El Paso office, which borders the Mexican town told AOL News. “They weren’t randomly picked. But at this point there’s no indication that the victims were targeted due to their employment with the consulate.”

Simmons’ remarks came hours after the Chihuahua State Attorney General announced that the Aztecas street gang and the drug organization La Linea may have had a hand in the shootings, according to the El Paso Times.

La Linea is part of the ever-powerful Juarez Drug Cartel. The Aztecas gang is also aligned with that cartel and has been known to act as deadly enforcers and peddle street drugs, authorities said.

7,000 people were murdered by the Mexican drug cartels last year because we in the US kept marijuana illegal, many of the victims were children, police officers and politicians. This year the cartels are on track to kill at least 9,000 more. The prohibition is like an American chemical factory sitting right on the border – it spreads its pollution all over Mexico, but as long as the stink continues to blow south nobody in the US cares.
