Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

'Knights Templar' present first victim in Michoacan

Thursday, March 17, 2011 |



One week after vowing to protect Michoacan from extortions, thieves, kidnappers, and rival cartels, the Knights Templar their first victim.

This morning authorities in Laguinilla, Michoacan were alerted to an unidentified man hanging from a bridge over the Pátzcuaro-Morelia highway. The victim had a handwritten message around his neck neck which read:

LO MATAMOS POR BANDIDO Y SECUESTRADOR. ATENTAMENTE LOS CABALLEROS TEMPLARIOS

WE KILLED HIM FOR BEING A THIEF AND A KIDNAPPER. SIGNED: KNIGHTS TEMPLAR

Last week banners signed by the previously unheard of Knights Templar were found in Morelia and Apatzingán. The messages were very similar to those used by La Familia Michoacana, which announced its alleged breakup in January.

Well, what did you think? Because LFM capos decide to shut down their business, their foot soldiers would go gently back to pop and mom?

They are kids who don't know anything else to make money, get respect on the street and a blowjob from their girlfriend. They are back where they belong, the street. And later hanging from under bridges.

However, I find this "Templar" thing funny in some twisted way: themselves are kidnappers, extortionists, killers, etc but they want to look like heroes and they pick a name they probably heard about in some bad cartoon in the Sunday paper. The hanging dude is probably 18 at a max. They are kids. Bloody murderer kids. Blame the parents and Calderon for not giving them another opportunity. When a society does not take care of its youth, it ceased existing.

The "Knights Templar" were soldiers of the "Catholic Crusaders" in the middle ages. See link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_Templar

Well, at least he was lucky, he wasn't dismembered or beheaded...probably beaten though. Who really knows what his crimes were.. but it just doesn't seem smart to get involved in the Drug Cartel business.

They should stop building bridges in Mexico.

@Sahid,
18, 28 or between, for me he still was a young dude with an alternate future. Sahid, you must a young guy yourself, I feel it in your comments. Don't you have more choice in life than the dude hanging under the bridge?
