What goes on in the mind of a hitman * Sicario *

Translated for Borderland Beat from a Oaxaca3.0 article by Otis B Fly-Wheel
Are hit men psychopaths or just sick or incapable of feeling empathy for the pain of others?
El Ondeado M1
Reporters note, Otis : I thought this would be a good article to translate as nearly everyone who reads BB has probably tried to understand why someone becomes one  and what it must be like to be a hit man.
Serial killers suffer from dissociative disorders which cause a predisposition to violence with the consumption of drugs.

Miguel Angel Trevino Morales alias Z40 , was reputed to eat the heart of his victims , believing it would make him invincible, he recruited people like " Bart Simpson " forcing them to shoot to death someone as proof of loyalty. The original zetas from Gafe , trained with Kabilies , Guatemalan special forces , amongst who its common to eat the heart of someone you kill as an initiation ceremony and to spread fear.

Mira en los ojos del Diablo ( look into the eyes of the Devil )

Miguel Angel Trevino Morales Z 40
The ex leader of the Zetas was detained mid way through 2013 , exemplified the cruelty that members of cartels display to rise up within their organizations.

Even though the aggression has certain limits and is to some extent part of human nature,  but the violent crimes associated with Z40 and others speaks about distortions and illness according to psychiatrist Christian Lukhau, director of laboratory of investigation at the University of Dusseldorf.

Its always a question that arises in relation to violent crimes , is the aggressor mentally ill or not? That will vary in each individual case, one cannot speak in general about the situation of a group of criminals , he said referring to the practices of members of cartels in their dispute for the supremacy of a territory , plaza , or drug route.

Dissociative Disorders

Lukhaus said one can treat the more diverse distortions that affect the personality. In particular dissociative disorders , that impede the capacity to feel empathy for fellow human beings, to put oneself in their shoes so to speak. Generally this empathy is conducive to the repression of aggressive conduct. The specialist explained that the lack of empathy permits an individual to engage in violence of a great magnitude, and this is a social personality disorder.

Additionally, mentally ill people that are conducive to a higher risk of violence, for instance schizophrenics, but not all patients are this violent but a small group.

People who abuse drugs are statistically predisposed to the use of violence.

Violence in childhood

 

"If I'd had psychological help , I don't think my life would have turned out the way it did" says Brian in a documentary entitled 'They killed my Father'.  The ex hit man related that ten years had passed  since his father was killed, whose body was burned with his head split in half in the desert on the outskirts of Cuidad Juarez.

The youngster related that his childhood was filled with hate , and became more violent with every year. At the age of 17 he killed his first victim, he didn't do it for money , he said he did it purely to see if he had the " cojones " to kill some one.

El Ponchis child serial killer
According to Laukhaus , this traumatic experience scarred him at a very young age, leading to him lacking the ability to conclude the process of maturing and the improvement of the personality. This provokes a strong predisposition to manifest compartmentalized violence, in fact it is an important requirement for such extreme violence, you can also translate this into a strong emotional swing . 

The person does not have the emotional balance that comes with a mature personality , Lukhaus points out that in these cases the victims of violence have a predisposition to later on become violent perpetrators themselves.

Its not a requirement to be sick

 

Lukhaus treats sick people with psychosis , schizophrenia and those that have committed violent crimes , it points out that killers with security do not come in a normal pattern , but he stresses that the question is " if they are genuinely sick or have a mental disorder. It is not necessary to arrive at this to convert one into a serial killer. These type of executioners have a dissociative disorder coupled with the problem of drugs.

The expert said that cocaine and other drugs with similar effects , provoke a strong secretion of the drug dopamine in the brain , which is conducive to a great predisposition to violent behavior,
the abuse of these substances can provoke psychosis , its also conducive to compartmentalized violence.

  1. I hope we don't start releasing these poor guys because they are ''sick'' in the mind because of a faulty brain or sompin', fact is you get into drug trafficking to make money, and some mathafakas get on the way, ad you get them out of the way, or you need to impress on the fried brains of your congenerates that you are the worst devil out there, and the most deserving of being the boss to get your claws on the most money...
    --million men killers, also known as mass murderers, or war crminals are worse than mexican sicarios, and the US protects them...

    1. I don't think people get INTO the narco life because of threats to their families. I think their families become threatened BECAUSE they get into the narco life, and then they justify everything they do after that to the press as "I was protecting my family" because they think that's the only way they'll get sympathy.

    1. La Mano Con Ojos was one sick minded individual. But idk if he was more psycho than Z40, the guy is a cannibal who ordered the killings of thousands of people and admitted to kill a few hundred himself. Z40 was a real life boogiemen, chupacabras or vampire in Mexico before getting caught. He killed hundreds of immigrants heading north looking for better lives, only because they did not want to do what his people told them to. He also ordered the killings of EVERYBODY with the last names of Garza and Moreno who lived in Allende, Coahuila just because two local drugtraffickers with those surnames did not want to pay no more than 5 million dollars that they owed him. This ended up with the burning of 80 houses in this town and the murders of over 100 people that where related to these families within an 8 month period.

    3. We arent talking about weed......they say that manuel torres never really slept after his son got killed and he would stay up for days......meth

    4. I've always wondered if the increase in seemingly psychotic violence could in part be caused by meth as compared to the old generations who were mostly on coke

      Delete
    5. The problem somewhat arises from the fact that , a lot of sicarios do not receive money from the cartel for their services. They are paid in kind , they are give cocaine or meth , which the cartels have plenty of. Couple that to a young guy , who thinks he is indestructible , as most young men do , and you have a recipe for disaster.

  8. I think as part of their "punishment" all guys like Z40 should be required to give recorded interviews such as El Wicked did. Don't know if El Wicked did his interviews willing or unwilling but I think we can all agree that their is much to be learned from hearing how these types of killers talk and think...

      Their "justice" system is so wacky especially with guys like Z40...
      Guys like Z40 blatantly embarrass Mexico (remember how Z40 was walking without any cuffs or anything).

  9. O.K. you talk about "Kids" seeing their parents murdered, so it's a little easier for them to become murderers also people who are 51 playing cards short of a full deck are probably in it for the $$ and the "Thrill" ! but what about Cops or basically raw recruits in the service of their country as well as the Federal Police who are sworn in as protectors of the public ??? For that matter; American G.I.'s in the middle east who come back from a tour of duty as wacky as any sicario's in Mexico!

    1. Although I understand your comparison I would like to point out the world of difference between a murderouse criminal and a trained soldier. Spending a year in the sand, always on alert, dealing with constant surprise attack, away from family and environment, following orders that are sometimes counter initiative, doing your basic job + fighting + many other tasks, maintaining military bearing at all times, etc. is different than chillin at the crib before going out to do some dirt then back home to momma and home cooked meals etc. I could write volumes on the subject but if you really want to know the difference between a sicario and a soldier. A sicarios is a killer with minimal or no training. A soldier is a trained combatatant.

    2. Bottom line He's still a killer trained nor not, just following orders right.

    3. Yez but a tru soldier defends his country and fights for freedom not kills for bribes!

    4. Well we cant be possibly be talking about soldiers here.zeta cartel does not have any rules they send their sicarios with no money to fight what do you expect and promise them a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.free lance sicarios bring back results or get killed and if you say wheres my paycheck you get shot in the head they confuse you for rival group because that is not spoken within them plaza boss and cell leaders keep all the cash and send payment to the upper bosses sicarios get a big turd and they tell them theirs a snitch in the group and the bosses have stop sending their money till they find out who it is.thats the life of a digenrite zeta thats why you see so many of them repeating zeta all the time to prove their loyal and are not the snitch in the group

    5. @ 10:05 Yeah but soldiers do cleaning getting rid of rats, like terrorist killers that kill for reasons of just hate agains't other ppl/religions. also other pieces of waste that this world doesn't need like in mexicos case the narco terrorist. Plus soldiers don't do it to turn themselves into millionaires doing illegal things.

      And what about the narco/sicarios? do they make this world a better place? Noppe. They just get worse like the cancer. eating away the rest, the more time it goes by the more it destroys. Until all the good stuff is gone! they don't care about none! Just themselves! selfish bastards.

    6. @09:08 , I think there is a little more to it than that as you rightly point out. Any Army is just a rabble rousers shout from anarchy and let the devil take your fellow man . It is the disciplinary part of their training , that takes over automatically that prevents them from the worst excess's against their enemy.

      Even with para-military style training , and im not talking about El Chino Antrax doing a few sit ups on youtube, I mean Kabilies training Zetas in organised camps , they never learn that discipline. They learn to fear their instructors , and their capos , but they don't learn discipline and they don't really follow rules of engagement.

      This behavour is not just synonymous with cartel operatives but also with Mexican forces and Federal and Municipal personnel , who must as some point take an oath to defend the lives of Mexican citizens, yet will quite happily take part in massacres like the Normalista's and the recent Apatzingan incident.

    7. While I'm not defending sicarios, I think soldiers are in the same category.....they perhaps believe the cause to be noble but they are paid assassins, period. Just paid way less. If you believe that US wars are to protect our freedom that's just sad...the US and it's muscle are basically an oil cartel and have been since WWII....u really think Iraq or Afghanistan threatens our 'freedom'....while I respect what soldiers must do, they are often as misguided as a sicario

    5. By the way a .38 super is an under power round. .40 , 45, 357, 44 magnum have real stopping power. Even the 38 special are out dated....jerk making fun of a new shooter.

      Delete
    6. Stopping power? Sorry bro lol no such thing as stopping power... Dont be fooled by caliber numbers meaning more power..

      A 9mm has more penetrating potential than a .40 even 45acp hence why many police agencys carry .40S&W and what round is bigger between the two? .40s&w but its safer for the reason that it has a lesser chance of going thru the body and bouncing off.

      If you mean Kenetic Power, then yes those biger rounds have more kenetic power. Stopping power is a newb term among amature gunners thinking the bigger the caliber the stronger stopping power.

      The .38 super is a mexican round designed to pierce thru cars.. I shoot .38 super its a lovely round between the 9mm and the .40

      Many pro shooters shoot .38s today.. Not sure why you say its out dated.. Maybe because its now banned in mexico to civilians.. Then yes.. Its rather old.

    7. Q. What do you call a person who is killed by a 22? A. You call him dead!

    8. Hey Mr 38 super, i was doing a bit of research about penetration and different calibers on hand guns... there is a round 5.7x28 mm that is designed to substitute the 9mm for some armed forces around the world based on penetration testing ballistic gelatin. Anyway the idea here is that , this particular round come in a armor piercing availability, with a Teflon tip. I tried to actually buy the gun but is way to expensive around $1300. And good luck getting the armor piercing rounds, they are military only.....

      Delete
    9. I use to own a 5.7 it has the cool factor. But its expensive to shoot and own. I paid a little over $1,400 for mine, but sold it soon after..

      For us civilians its not worth it, the civilian ammo will not penetrate, and of course here in cali only 10 round magazines are legal and it defeats the purpose of owning one, because the 5.7 pistol can hold 20 rounds on a regular standar mag..

      The pro's
      I like the guns ergonomics, also has very low recoil and it's damn loud!!!!

      I like my Colts and Glock's.. And Like I always say, if my life ever depends on a gun.. Ill be damn sure to pick up one of my glocks..

    13. The 5.7 mm is made by FN Herstal in Belgium , the round was designed to penetrate Kevlar bullet proof jackets. I did some work testing this weapon for Uk Forces. That is why some rounds you can buy for it come with a Teflon tip. In fact El Chapos Guzmans son was carrying one when he was assassinated .

  13. This article forgot this:
    Just like serial killers, "hit men" are cowards incapable of fair combat or fight.
    The Z40, the heart eater, (that's a lie, he does eat plenty of tamales), quickly surrendered when he was supposed to fight.

    2. Anonymous Jan. 14th 9:05 brought up an excellent point! When I heard he was captured with of all people;; his accountant and not a small army of Z' body guards I said to myself; what happened to the "Rambo" that this Z40 is supposed to be?? I remember when they interviewed the kid "Bart" thats doing the time in Texas saying when the fighting started "Z40" was the first guy in combat and the last one out! They had this guy up on a pedestal that readers actually thought he was at least ex-military and not a f----en Car washer from Nuevo Laredo. So this being the case, we would have to put Trevino in the "Just Plain Psyco" class. Which means as long as his adversary is tied-up and helpless, then 40's a "Rambo" !!

      Delete
    3. Pleeeeze have a better source than the fairy tale king rosalio bart reta. His story is fabrication with 10% fact. Only Americans who don't educate themselves feed into his BS.

      As for "car washer" IN LAREDO, yup, his older brother had a mobile detailing business taking care of high end cars including those of the local Los Tejas, and later top CDG narcos.

      Car wash business It is an honest living, only an asshole would put shame on an honest bust ass living. IMO it is far better to go through life working as a detailer than the alternative. Shame on your ass.

      as for former military (you call ex military) he never claimed to be such , again you are relying on the nonsense of American authors, who in the book executioners about Zetas it was said he was former GATES. or fed police I can't recall which of the two.

      He began with cdg, and running errands for osiel, who was impressed with the hardworking, bilingual kid. osiel then gave him nvo Laredo plaza working as part of the zetas, then of course with cdg.

      his original code was L40 in the beginning only former military were given the Z before the number. later he was given the Z.

      he proved himself to be an outstanding leader and astute businessman, and was sent to take Veracruz when Efrain was killed. Later he went to Guatemala on orders from his boss Lazca. he cleaned and established control of the majority of the departments (states) when he came back to Veracruz he was made commander of zetas-nationally. he still was working half in Veracruz and partially in Coahuila when lazca was killed in Sabinas.

      as for the bloody killings of everyone. as one Mexican journalist said "the myth of Z40 is so strong, you can pin any unsolved atrocity in Mexico on Trevino and some people would believe it, even that before his birth"

      It was lazca who did not believe in seducing the hearts and minds of the people, he controlled by terror. 40 was brutal where it concerned his enemies, and his betrayers, but he never ruled by terrorizing people, he believed in a quiet rule, out of sight, no displays of mass killings and decapitations for control.

      remember the 72 migrants the zetas killed? He was furious over that mass killing. the order was to recruit not kill. mantas were left with the bodies of the executioners in the massacre. trevino ordered them killed, and he left there bodies in san Fernando with a message of who they were. One of the victims identified them as the shooters.

      that story was on BB a few times. someone can try to find it, it would be right after the 72 were killed.

      a baby did trevino in. his new baby. The baby lived outside Nvo Laredo and he would travel at night to visit the child using the back access roads from Sabinas, which is where the capture occurred. Travelling with "a small army of Zetas" would have been pretty stupid,

      "hey wait, here I am over here with my army" yes of course, all capos travel that way while trying to be unnoticed. think before you speak. you watch to many movies.

  14. i was severely abused emotionally and physically as a kid and would always tell myself that one day i would grow up and no one would mess with me. Then one day in second grade we have a career day (starting young i know) and when i was asked what i wanted to be, i was adamant i would become a hitman.....and that became my goal in life. Later in life, during a screening for placement in the correctional institution, after a shooting, the interviewing psychiatrist said i had no empathy and was psychotic and a sociopath....today i have a loving family, haven't been in trouble for years and do a lot of charity work and am considered very empathetic and sympathetic, as well as having a very successful career. I think my goals early in life were due to an extreme rage i had because of the abuse i received, combined with a really low esteem and belief that no one cared about me. Because i didn't love myself, i couldn't love anyone else, or care for them or even see them as people, just beings capable of hurting me. once i had a child, i went to college and struggled and strived to be something for that child and in the process learned to love myself for being a survivor and a doer. Granted i never became a hitman or killed anyone, i can imagine the kind of hatred for humankind and rage one must go through to get there. Killers are not made overnight, it takes a long time to get to that point.

    4. same applies to crimes of passion IMO....the majority of people who kill their loved ones probably have a history of oppressing them and abusing them...personally i don't believe in spontanous killings...the killer probably had the mindset that they would kill their loved one if they betrayed them...might be a cultural thing or something more personal but they knew how they'd react to that situation before it happened...thats just my opinion...i could be wrong

  15. This is a very complicated subject,violence is part of the human makeup and we are trying to stem that part of ourselves in various ways,but i don't think it will ever be eradicated?
    There will be people reading this article right now who can do extreme violence and kill if the circumstances were wrong?How many people here now,think they could kill if they would not get arrested and in great trouble and could just walk away?We can look for causal reasons for violence,but it is just as part of our makeup as anger(which plays a part)love,jealousy,happiness,violence has played a huge part in making nations and civilization,and continues to do so,of course we cannot run around killing people,but it will always happen,we can only try and contain it?

  16. Those who lack empathy, usually also have a very inflated self image of themselves.I was once married to someone, who had such traits, ONLY his opinion, cares, concerns mattered. They can "fake" being concerned or fake that they "love' someone, but it's not real...and it's ALWAYS to benefit their very self centered selves.These people are the best at manipulating others, always for self gain purposes.They are incapable of love. They demand that those closest to them, always give them undeserving praise, attention, and adoration.These are the people you run from. I am almost certain that, this guy...being in a cartel, had many around him enabling his behavior, never criticizing anything he ever said or done. If you were to criticize their behavior, they will loose it! BTW, they are never wrong, it's always someone else's fault,they refuse to accept responsablity for their actions.

    there has never been any evidence that 40 te hearts, killed babies in boiling vats or any other myth. when he had to order a hit he could be brutal against his enemies, but if it was someone once close to him that was guilty of betrayal he usually would warn them in a scary fashion, as in forcing them to watch a killing.

    there was testimony to one such occasion with el gordo and 40, in the zetas trial.
    after lazca death, big showy killings stopped.

    1. I agree that a lot of the Z40 stories are probably exaggerated. His rivals want to make him look bad, and internet forum users want to have one guy to label as 'the worst'.
      Also, much of the info on Z40's personal behaviour came from one guy: Rosalio Reta. Reta's best chance of getting parole is to convince the judge that Z40 manipulated him, so he has a vested interest in painting a bad picture of Z40.
      On the flip side, regarding what you said about Lazca, I believe that Z40 was actually the driving force behind many of the massacres, but was more willing to do it when he wasn't the top target under the radar. Testimony from Zetas indicates that he ordered a bunch of the violence that made headlines, but I believe once he took control of the Zetas he decided to be more discrete in order to avoid capture.

  21. I find this article very interesting . The article gives you a little insight into the psyche of in my opinion not only a Sicario(sp), but also anyone who commits such acts to others with lack of remorse or affinity for their victims . I served in the USMC 24th MEUSOC Marine Expeditionary Unit Special Operations Capable MOS 0351 for several years . I did a TOD in Iraq performing Direct Action missions and various other operations against insurgents. Granted we were not decapitating anyone's head or torture of any kind. Over time I started to build extreme detestation for the enemy. A growing urge to exact revenge and not caring for them or some of the civilians. Even with the horrors of war a sense of normalcy starts to set in. I prayed and sought guidance to ensure I didn't become someone I hated. So, my point is I wonder if a lot of these men start out the same way? Yet overtime all the heinous acts start to become normal & the persons psyche and their mentality & way of thinking is changed indefinitely. Anyways, I apologize for the long post! Just an opinion/curiosity of a white guy from NC. I feel sorry and pray for the people of Mexico who have to endure the horrors of what these narco traffickers are doing. God Bless

    1. I called survival mode.....like prison either fuck or fight. When it comes to mexico you don't have to feel sorry all if not most mexicans voted for PRI, the equivalent of a nazi regime, when they knew the consequences. The problem in mexico is not the drug traffickers is the lack of government. For instance in mexico you can literally kill ,rape,do what ever you want and bribe your way out....that's is exactly the issue, there is no way to hold anyone accountable. So yeah I suggest you visit mexico, and you get an idea of what really is happening.

  22. Heavy drug use can mess some ones head easily. And it gets worse if that 'person' started doing drugs at a young age. And even worser if that same 'person' started with heavy drugs and has a predisposition to "becoming something". Like one big ugly mean monster like el come marranos.... lol

  23. Great article to read. But please do not give this article to the attorneys of those in prison. They would only use it as a basis for an insanity plea.

  25. Silly people....since the beginning of time there has been individuals capable of performing jobs or actions not suitable for the average person. For instance butchers, prostitutes,politicians,cops, you name it. You don't have to be crazy to be a hit man. I think that everyone out there is capable of doing crazy shit, but we don't because of the repercussions, prison, social pressures of what is wrong and right.....any ways at the end of the day, it comes down to who is willing to make money by any means necessary.

    1. Yep,basically it is no big mystery,it is part of the human being but it is distasteful to us in this day and age.We see atrocities every day in other countries and our own..Individual violence is wrong,but violence in war and conflict,,that is ok,it is lauded even and given medals,we have double standards.
      Violence is a legitimate part of our nature,and no,you are not crazy..

  27. Psychopaths are quite common , one in a hundred people. However most of them , whilst having violent thoughts never act out those thoughts. The problems are when psychopaths develop psychosis within the condition.

    This can be brought on as the Dr in the article says , by abuse of the right drug , or by constant exposure to violence as a child. No surprise then that your average sicarios are so young and many have been subjected to violence as a child.

    The idea of the article is not to justify why anyone kills , but to understand what leads them to that point.
