It’s a level of violence so brutal, it is almost unfathomable.
”A couple of years ago, citizens around the world were utterly shocked by the beheadings and immolation murders perpetuated by ISIS. This caught me by surprise,” Joshua Fruth, a former military intelligence officer and consultant on transnational threat networks, told Fox News. ”Because these tactics have been perpetuated by Sinaloa for some time.”
Fruth was referring to the multibillion-dollar cartel that continues to operate from Mexico and throughout the United States, despite the fact its accused leader, Joaquin ”El Chapo” Guzman, stands trial in a Brooklyn, NY courtroom.
Fruth said the cartel’s horrific tactics include the injection of adrenaline and other substances that affect the central nervous system of its victims, “which kept them awake to enhance the responses of pain receptors during slow, prolonged torture.” These tactics are used on women and children, Fruth said, including “family members of rivals or snitches, to elicit information and sow fear. These cartels have a history of sexually assaulting the family members of their target, and forcing the target to observe.”
And that’s only the tip of the blood-soaked iceberg. Other methods used to murder are too callous for even the most horrid of Hollywood horror movies.
There’s beheading by chainsaw – a rumored favored method of Guzmán, who is said to feature in a 2010 video doing exactly that to murder victim Hugo Hernandez. Even worse, Hernandez’s face was reportedly peeled off after he was killed, and stitched on a football.
Then there is the practice of putting people in drums and either boiling them or setting them on fire, or feeding humans to exotic animals like lions and tigers.
