Former cartel member reports on narco underworld in YouTube video blog




BACKGROUND: CJNG Cartel Gunmen Burn  Face Off a Cartel Unidos Leader Named Ghost Rider Before Executing Him


Gunmen from CING cartel burned off the face of a rival and recorded the man’s agony as he begged for death. The Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG) members burned the man’s face off as a way to mock his nickname, “Ghost Rider.”

The gory act of torture took place over the weekend near the town of Tepalcatepec, Michoacán where the CJNG is fighting against factions of Los Viagras and La Familia, known as Carteles Unidos. The fighting has occurred on and off for several weeks without any real action from Mexico City or state authorities. Both criminal organizations want control of drug production and transit routes from the Pacific coast into central and northern Mexico to the U.S. border.

The video was allegedly recorded following three days of gun battles in the nearby town of El Aguaje.

After the clashes, gunmen from CJNG captured a leader with Carteles Unidos who went by the nickname Ghost Rider. The gunmen then used rubbing alcohol to set fire to his face as the victim screamed in agony and begged to be killed.
