The ugly nature of the drug war in Mexico will not subside.
Retired Gen. Mauro Enrique Tello Quiñonez, his aide and a driver were tortured. They had many broken bones, bruises and burn marks on their skin.
State prosecutor of Quintana Roo, Bello Melchor Rodriguez y Carrillo, said “The general was the most mistreated. He had burns on his skin and bones in his hands and wrists were broken.”
The general took over as the top anti-drug man in the area just 24 hours before his death.
A U.S. FBI agent that advises the Mexican Police told us, “The drug war is out of control here. No rules.”
The U.S. military said recently said the drug war could cause the Mexican government to collapse. There is now a rising tide of dead judges, mayors and police — all killed by drug cartels and many tortured.
According to official figures, at least 72 military officers have died in anti-drug raids in Mexico since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon declared war against drug trafficking.
