A total of 15 dead were found in three incidents in Tamauliaps state since last Thursday according to Mexican news accounts.

Friday morning a Mexican Army unit found seven unidentified individuals in  Valle Hermoso municipality in northern Tamalipas.  Five victims had been beheaded.

The find was made on a road leading to the village of  Las Yescas. A message was also left with the bodies, but its contents were not disclosed.

In San Fernando municipality two more unidentified individuals were found beheaded Friday.

Last Thursday six unidentified victims were found in Ciudad Victoria, the state capital of Tamaulipas.  The find was made just a few kilometers from the Ciudad Victoria to San Luis Potosi highway.

As with the find in Valle Hermoso, all six had been beheaded and a message was left at the scene but its content was not disclosed.

With the two finds Thursday and Friday, and the gunfight in Miguel Aleman last Wednesday, the death toll from drug and gang related activity rises to 23.

The Mexican government should make a change in a few laws. One being concerning human rights, why should these cartel scum be protected? They are mass killing innocent people who want a normal life. So, for ANYONE, ANYONE belonging to a drug cartel, the govt needs to change the status from human...to trash...to rat waste or simply make them an animal which they all are as none are human even killing their immediate family for debts and belonging to other cartels...oh, well...another time...let them all keep killing each other, but after the Mexican govt changes the status to animal...take them to the pound and put all them POS's down or put a few in their heads fuck arrest...terminate with extreme prejudice and get this fucking scum off this planet.

I just wish that the people posting on this site that have so little insight about the topic and a vocabulary that is limited so badly that the only descriptive word they know is scum or scum bag would quit posting on every article. Man these hit every article with a scum bag post is getting old and challenging the true purpose of this site. It is not about stating your "I want to be a John Wayne narcotic agent" opinion. It is for people that have insight into Mexico and it's cartels to discuss what is going on and trends they see. It isn't about people that wish they had the balls to be a Marine or Navy Seal but don't talking like they are one and suggesting the US sent them to save Mexico. Damn, go back to Guns and Ammo, KKK Today, or Trailer Park USA Magazine. Please leave your opinions in your trash can. What makes you think for one minute it might not be the Mexican Government that is killing these people and how do you know they aren't innocent people? Do you even read the articles before you blurt out your ignorance?

This is for @7:42. You state your opinion of others concerning scum, it seems you are the same with your opinionated rants and ignorance. You too???? Do you believe everything you read??? "I just wish that the people posting on this site would have a little insight........" Apparently you do not as you believe everything the media reports when one and the same story can be reported on in Mexico, but there are 100 versions and all different. So reading the articles apparently to you are all true and factual. Read what you posted and take your racist stereotypical responses and it seems you are describing yourseld in your response. "KKK Today, Trailer Park USA, Guns and Ammo" Your limited view of of apparent whites in that comment tends to point out you are a deep racist. So to you we heed absolutely no credence in your rants. By the way, I live in a beautiful gated home (nowhere in sight of your camper in Trailer Park USA, I do no subscribe to your love poems in KKK Today and I think you subscription to Guns and Ammo expired. You automatically think that the posted you responded to is white. Maybe, Mexican, Black American, Chinese...Why the trailer park and KKK response? READ WHAT YOU WRITE BEFORE YOU POST as apparently you are a hurt member of one of the lowlife cartels who does not want to see yourself labeled an animal or you feel offended that your insight shows your intelligence which seems next to nothing. How do you know the poster was even from America???? Take the boot out of your mouth asshole.

CDG we're behind the killings in valle hermoso

Get off it, 9:30 PM. You really think they're innocent? Give me a break. In parts of Mexico almost the entire economy is narco fueled. Ordinary people act as lookouts and informants for the cartels all over the place. THEY ALL SHOULD FUCKING DIE. The only way is to make any cartel involvement a death warrant. We need a lot more killing.

All I can say is God help Mexico. I am not from there but have travelled there in the past. It was a wonderful country, but I would not travel there now. It must be very sad to live there and try to bring up your children with all of the bloodshed.

@7:42 PM Thank you for that informative, well reasoned input. We have been thoroughly schooled.

2:26 AM I have no direct or indirect involvement with any criminal activity. I too do not live in a lower socio-economic environment. Am I guilty of stereotyping bloggers, yes, just as you just did to me. I get frustrated with the repeated use of the word scumbags, posts of send the US Marines, kill them all, kill their families, etc. Am I a racist, I do my best in every setting not to be. I am probably the hardest on my own race, white because ignorance in my race is to some degree a reflection on me. But many of the strong opinions on this site resemble KKK and even trends with Nazi arrogance. I do understand we have a lot of young men returning from war and when they see a problem in another country, they really own what they know as a response. Until 18 months ago, this site was for discussing cartels, crime, and changes within those systems. That has changed significantly in the past 9 months. I appreciate your feedback and please try to understand where my point was coming from. I believe it is time to clean up some of the knee jerk slang reactions to what the media and the Mexican Government want us to think is going on in Mexico.

@ anon March 9, 2012 7:42 PM,Just out of curiosity,how many of these Victims did you know personally?None I bet!So,how can you say they were all innocent?If you live in the U.S. then I suggest we punish Cartel members the way you punish your Pedophiles,Rapists & Child Porn Peddlers!After all,the victims of all the above mentioned "ARE" innocent!!"REALLY INNOCENT"!

How do you punish your pedophiles, rapists and child porn peddlers? Do you punish them at all? Can you even catch them if they don't fall in your lap? Mexican cops don't catch criminals they are criminals.

Haha. The papers only print half truths. I'm from Valle hermoso and my parents still live there. CDG has killed way more zebras than what their saying. I heard from a stupid cousin who works with CDG that theres a commandant that they call "el mochavergas". He catches zetas and cuts off their manhood and cut of their hands and carves a z on their forehead and releases them alive. I saw a photo of 5 zetas they do that to. I hear hes done that to over a hundred zetas. Anyone know this guys real name? Mochavergas can't be his real name
