Arizona Beheading - Drug Violence Crossing The Border

It is obvious that the USA has a major problem along our southern border. While our Homeland Security Department concentrates on the air and sea, checking granny and kids, drugs and cartel thugs are crossing into our country at will. It is ridiculous to think that terrorists and their weapons du jour are not part of that southern invasion.

We already have one rancher killed and bullets, from cartel infighting, flying across the border into US towns. This along with kidnappings going through the roof in Phoenix and now a beheading in Chandler, Arizona, should be a wake up call for action along the border.

Mexico cannot control the cartels. What makes you think we will be able to contain the gangs, that have infested our major cities, once they are infiltrated and strengthened by the drug-lords?

The gruesome case of a man who was stabbed and beheaded in a suburban Phoenix apartment has police investigating whether the killing is potentially the most extreme example of Mexican drug cartel violence spilling over the border.

Martin Alejandro Cota-Monroy's body was found Oct. 10 in a Chandler apartment - his severed head a couple feet away. One man suspected in the killing has been arrested, and a manhunt is under way for three others.

Detectives are focused on whether the men belong to a Mexican drug cartel, and they suspect that Cota-Monroy's killing was punishment for stealing drugs. The brutal nature of the killing could be designed to send a message to others within the cartel.

"If it does turn out to be a drug cartel out of Mexico, typically that's a message being sent," said Chandler police Detective David Ramer. "This person was chosen to be executed. It sends a message to other people: If you cross us, this is what happens."

Decapitations are a regular part of the drug war in Mexico as cartels fight over territory.
