"Los Zetas the idol of children"
A morbid message to the children of Secundaria Tecnica 18, a middle school in the colonia Valle de Santa Lucia in Monterrey, was scrawled on a wall surrounding the school grounds late Tuesday night beneath the remains of two unidentified dismembered bodies.
The red graffiti on the wall read "Los Z el Ídolo de los niños" (or Los Zetas the idol of children).
Residents alerted the police who arrived at the scene and secured the bodies of two unidentified young males, one missing the head and hands and the other with only a torso.
Investigating authorities stated that the men had been executed elsewhere and the remains left at the scene. No witnesses could be found that would describe the vehicles used by the murderers.
The fear by the authorities was such that snipers were positioned to guard the area against an attack while the forensic crime scene investigation proceeded.
At least three other men have been the victims of organized crime style executions in Valle de Santa Lucia since the beginning of the year.
Another blow against Mexico's youth occurred this morning in the colonia Guadalupe area of Culiacan, Sinaloa when a group of students were sprayed by gunfire from the occupants of a passing vehicle.
The students were attacked at the entrance of the Conalep III campus (a vocational technical school) for having unfortunately looked at the vehicle as it drove by.
Miraculously only one student was injured, suffering a non-life threatening wound to his legs.
According to witnesses a Honda Civic with heavily tinted windows and two occupants on board was driving past the school when it stopped and reversed back to the entrance where a group of students was entering and threatened them before the driver discharged a .45 caliber handgun, aiming at their legs.
The occupants of the vehicle yelled "qué me ven, me conocen o qué", what are you looking at, do you know me or what?, to the students who had dared to glance at the suspicious looking vehicle.
