drug cartels

By JAVIER MANJARRES

The drug-related crimes occurring south of the U.S. border in Mexico continue to rise, as more and more innocent civilians are being directly targeted by the murderous Mexican drug cartels.

 Unfortunately, one of the latest victims is a former U.S. Marine veteran, who has disappeared in Mexico. According to his family, Armando Torres and two other family members were kidnapped by armed men, after Torres crossed the border in Brownsville, Texas to go visit his father who resides in Mexico.

 “A cousin of ours from Mexico contacted his sister, his sister called and told us that he was picked up there in Mexico,” Torres’ uncle told the local NBC affiliate.

Another family member, Patricia Torres, added, “They say when they got there, they were people with weapons and they picked him up.”  A missing person’s report was filed with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department.-Fox

 According to the report, Torres’ friend and fellow Iraq War veteran John Fray is blaming President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for Operation Fast & Furious for arming the drug cartels.

 “While they attempt to destroy our Second Amendment here, we see what it’s doing, we are going to lose a Marine, we can’t leave a Marine behind,” he said. “I think we should get a bunch of Marines and go in there and find him.”-John Fray
