Cuidado con tus “tweets” – ¡los sicarios te matarán!
But what makes this case so different is that near the bodies a message had been left by the killers, stating that the pair had been executed specifically for using social media networks to convey news and warnings about drug and organized crime activities in the area. The victims' social media and/or other internet postings apparently had been traced back to them by the sicarios (executioners).
There are some in this country -- including Mexico's former president Vicente Fox -- who want to hold "peace talks" with the drug cartels (see my post about Barack Obama's recent interview with Latin journalists, below). Too bad the current president, Felipe Calderon, can't run for reelection in 2012. He has the cojones to stand up to organized crime here.
Note: The title of this post is "Careful with your tweets -- the hit men will kill you." I hope they're not reading this Blog.
