Cancun has some of the most beautiful, scenic beaches in the world. The Mexican city is renowned for its resorts and is a wildly popular tourist attraction.
One incident of violence might just put a dent in those tourist dollars, however.
Assassins working for a Mexican cartel slaughtered a family on their way out of a theater Saturday night, according to The Yucatan Times.
That alone would be enough to warn folks to stay away from the city until authorities got the situation under control, but the plot yet thickens.
One of the victims was a child.
Police Commander Julio César Durán Cárdenas had been on the cartel’s hit list for cracking down on them, according to Breitbart. His wife was as well — Police Commander Alia Shagrei Lugo, worked with him against crime, and it cost them dearly.
Breitbart reports that the couple were exiting a theater Saturday night when they were ambushed by a team of assassins. Durán Cárdenas was killed while his wounded wife tried to escape with the third victim — sources differ as to whether the child was their nephew or their son, and whether the child was eight months old or 11 years old.
The didn’t get far.
Both the wife and the child were shot execution-style. The child was taken to the hospital where he died of his wounds, according to Breitbart.
Breitbart reports that there are rumors claiming that Durán Cárdenas played favorites between the different drug cartels — which, if it were true, could possibly explain the assassination beyond the law enforcement crackdown.
Mexico’s law and order leaves a great deal to be desired, and although I can hardly tell you what to do, it might be worth your caution to wait for that vacation south of the border.
This incident also shines pretty darn brightly as an example of why we should have solid border security on our southern border. Seriously, liberals, what more proof do you want?
