I hope they put his head in a press and day by day move the press one centimeter inward. This is not my nature, it's in me to help others, but when I see the fotos you've posted including the one of the woman at the casket who is flooded with an unbearable pain that she may still be experiencing the angry side of me immediately is triggered AND GETTING EVEN WITH THAT LOVELESS SMART ASS EGOTISTICAL DELINQUENT 'IS ON MY LIST!!!' and I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling this way. That PIG bastard short changed a lot of people by taking their lives and now they're gone forever and what remains is the memory in the hearts and minds of those who lost their loved ones.

THAT ONE HAD BETTER BE DESTROYED, WE DON'T WANT IT AROUND NO MORE, AND NO PRISON ESCAPES, JUST DO AWAY WITH THE F...

One of the Beatles songs has the words Give Peace a Chance. Online at blog sites and News Post web sites I've been reading what Mexicans have to say about Murdered Victims of organized crime, mafia and other such abusers of human rights and a great many Mexicans want capital punishment handed to those who murder in their country.

In regards to 'Abraham Barrios Caporal'
this is Mexico's chance and handing a sentence of death -- Give Capital Punishment a Chance!

Nobody wants a return to barbarism but a message can be sent to those who engage in savagery against mankind.

The mass of earth's population would not benefit from viewing a live broadcast of a man being put to their. Let the crimes of such people take charge of administering the degree of punishment they deserve. Our focus should be in continuing with our lives and teaching children values and revenge is not a value so once again, so for the health of society, no live broadcasts of the termination of a brutal murderer's life should that person be given the same sentence he placed on others, the Ultimate Act of GREED possible = having taken another or other people's live.

Seems all the Zetas responsible for that massacre have either been killed by CDG or arrested. I am very glad.

lol at people claiming not wanting to return to barbarism while wanting death penalty.

Yes this dude is scum but do you really think that they are afraid to die when they already are killed by the thousands?

Nevermind the fact that does ANYONE at all have ANY faith whatsoever in Mexican justice system to hand out death penalties. Hell even in the US people are whining that the government is too incompetent to even run a damn DMV while championing capital punishment.

The guy was well-named - he does look like a freaking squirrel or a chipmunk. They probably made fun of him in school and for that he has to become a mass murderer.

Commentary on "lol at people claiming not wanting to return to barbarism while wanting death penalty".
1.
If we broadcast the death penalty of a murderer,
if we want to, we can train society to ENJOY watching somebody being murdered On Screen
and in that way we can create A Barbaric Society!

2.
Should it be decided to give a mass murderer the death penalty, if it is not broadcast for all to see, Society is not affected by the termination of 'the psychopath'. We do not wish to train more people to become psychopaths ...

In order to better understand this whole deal you need to watch an interrogation from the federal police to "el wache" he was el kilos boss but was under ardilla, there he explains everything, look It up on youtube

Comandante Kilo had something to do with it? No?

Comandante Kilo is the individual responsible for stopping transport buses in the highway that passed through San Fernando Tamps. He tought the people inside the buses where reinforcements recluted by CDG so he eventually gave orders to kill the passengers. Also it has been said that he stopped the busses to reclute people for the Zeta cartel and if any opposed, they would be killed. Latter on, marines stationed in San Fernando found bodies in what they call "Narco Fosas" and in them not only did they found men, they also found women, kids, and babys.

I beg to differ but i would argue there are more people commenting here who would love to see this piece of shit getting executed for his conscious choice to kill innocent migrants.In a civilized society that behavior cannot be tolerated and i would say we need to set a standard to show it will not not tolerated.Before you say it.I don't care if it a deterrent,one thing it will do is make sure he can never do it again"Ask family members if they would like to see him executed"

Ye,ye,ye,you go right ahead and turn the other cheek and all that rot.In the mean time innocent people are being killed for no reason all the time all over the world.But we can find another way,ye,ye,ye,,do you ever stop to think that you may be wrong in your opinions?We are a violent species,face it,own up to it,and deal with it.All we can do is enforce the harshest laws for murder,it is always a willful choice,we have lawyers similar to you in that they want to get people off heinous crimes through technicalities and police procedure?Never mind that there is absolutely no doubt about someones guilt,make sure they have due process and rights?What about the rest of us,who choose not to kill people?I can choose to kill someone,but i choose not to because in the final analysis it is wrong.Look at the family members crying over their loved ones,what do you think they want?Does it count what they want?I think it should,we need law and order,do you want chaos?What would someone like you do then i wonder?

There will always be people who want to look out for the rights of dogs like these?Why is that?

Definitely to much to ask,look at some of the people commenting here?"No execution"Why not?
Oh yes senore,i would like to see that to.
I wonder how they would feel then,knowing they are to be handed over?They must be shown in a radical way,their behavior won't be tolerated.

I' suspect that the Immigration surrendered the illegal immigrants of other Countries to the Zetas of San Fernando and Nuevo Laredo so they can be tortured and returned back to their Central American Country but when the 2nd time this same people were surrendered to the Zetas is when they were Massacared like in San Fernando 72 killings you see the Mexican Government spents too much money in transporting the illegal Central Americans back to their Country every Year so I' think the Corrupted Mexican Government washed it's hand with those busted Zeta ganstas like Combandante ardilla, Combandante Kilo, Combandante Erazmo, of course they were associated with the Corruption of the Mexican Government dirty Politician Boses that was evident of their dirty works Tamaulipas was the Capitoll of the Secuestradores the ones who kidnapped for a heavy ransom price allot of Victims that felt on the hands of those captured Zeta Freaks since 2003-2012 in the Tamaulipas then Coahuila, extended to Nuevo Leon and the rest of the Mexican States.

Los Zetas began kidnapping people in 2002 for ransom money and they were very well organized in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas with the colaboration of the Corrupted Mexican Police they had hide outs were they had ALL of their kidnapped victims and the extorcionists pressuring their Familly relatives to send the money by wire transfer or bank deposit or they would kill their familly relative this was very common in those days in 2002 to 2011 this was one of the ways the Zeta Organization financially grew, in 2004 the high school students there back then they all dreamed to have a Sports car and some like in the movie "The Fast and the Furious" were offered by Los Zetas raw Cash for fire Weapons like Ak-47's, ammunition etc.. back then there was allot of Corruption within the Mexican immigration inspection port of entries. The Zetas extended into nortern Coahuila into Piedras Negras and Acuña the kidnappings, drug ministores(Narcomenudeo), prostitution, infant pornography private sites, ALL of this Crimes infested mostly All of the Tamaulipas, Coahuila and Nuevo Leon by the Zetas organization they hired Gangsters from the barrios to commit cold blooded killings they mostly gave the orders.
