Mexican Cartels Violently Beat and Kill Female Mayor

It plays to the sensitivities of folks that generally associate females as the "fairer sex", and old school code that says guys shouldn't beat/kill women or children. How often does the left pitch a hissy fit when an Obama launched drone Hellfire missile causes "collateral damage"? I'll add that since these scum did this to a woman (and her child?) it suggests they (the scum) deserve no quarter or mercy if ever brought to justice.

As our focus continues to be on the violence in the Middle East, it is also important to pay attention to what is going on just south of our own border in Mexico. The war between the Mexican government and drug cartels is still raging with the war's latest victim being female Mayor Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who was beaten, burned, tortured and dumped for dead on the side of the road. Before being killed, Gorrostieta had been attacked twice by cartels for daring to challenge them. The third attack they waged on her, was her last.
