Tijuana: Two women tortured and murdered, thrown on side of the road

Tijuana: Two women tortured and murdered

I've written a lot of these posts, not as many as those writing for AFN, Zeta, Frontera, and all the others who report the daily killings, the tragedies, the death, the brutality, but likely a few dozen over the last 5 years.  

I can write about the early morning mist, or the frigid cold that clings to the region, the frost and bitter winds that must sweep through the Tijuana/Rosarito road in those morning hours.  The morbid tranquility of two bodies, silent in death, the contrast of the serenity of early morning and the bodies getting colder by the second, warm flesh, red blood, fighting a losing battle with the frigid air.

The bodies were found near Real Del Mar.  

I don't know if it's easier one way or the other, or whether I care about what's easier. I don't think I do. I want there to be meaning.  Meaning in saying two men, possibly a mother and daughter, were beaten, and executed, then tossed on the side of the road.  

I don't know where the killing and violence ends, a void of anger, sadness, regret, hopelessness, bitterness.  Two women were murdered.  Two women were tortured.  And they were found on the side of a road.  

Maybe they were in involved in the trade.  Maybe they were someone's family.  Or maybe that is all that matters.  They were someones family.  They are.  There will be a funeral.  These women were loved by someone.  They mattered to someone.  The fact that they ended on the side of the road, bearing the marks of torture does not betray their humanity.  

But, it betrays ours, if we callously dismiss them as undesirables, or if they were indeed involved in the retail drug trade.  The tendency of a society is to tune out, to clean and crop a picture for instagram, take a Snap of some inane or enviable activity, turn up the music, dismiss, demean, dispose of the images, or the visuals that come along with beaten and bruised body parts and bullets piercing flesh.  

I don't do that.  You take it in, and process it.  Let it tear through you like a shot of liquor, let it singe your tongue, and burn your insides.....let it sit for awhile.

    5. For these murderers there is nothing sacred, we must remember that we started having these wholesale crimes when the mexican DFS stoped chasing "communist guerrillas" in mexico and started managing drug trafficking cartels like the guadalajara cartel and letting their schools of the americas trained military and paramilitary maniacs loose on the general population.
      Then there are the unforgiving husbands and lovers and rivals, it is a pity that the local poolice corporations are too stupid to clear this case.

    2. God has abandoned those who have turned away from him. The earth is damned because of ALL of our wicked ways. "Muslims" killing in the name of god. "Christians" killing in the name of god. "Jews" killling in the name of god. Conservative Americans worry more about the death of a fetus but yet turn a blind eye to starving women and children. Mexican politicians selling their souls for cash at the expense of its people. If an abomination like Donald Trump can become the president of the most powerful country in the world then we are all truly damned to hell.

  11. Mexico . I used to like to go there . Not anymore . Its like the old western movies full of banditos . Maybe its always been bad and I didn't recognize when I was young . Nothing for me on the other side of the border . I really cant see a good change on the horizon . Was hopeful when Fox was running . That chango didn't turn out to be anything special. There have been revolutionist trying to change mexico for more than 100 years . Half of them were as corrupt as the ones they were going against. Mexico could be a paradise but .......

  16. Sadly to say Mexico has become a war zone for brutality and killings. Human beings tortured and discarded like trash is by no means justification for what has transpired here.
    For what unknown reason, they deserve a decent outcome of respect.
    I will leave this with a positive note: that maybe now you are in a better place. Where life's struggles are none and peace is always with you.

When I seen the photo my first thought was a American from this side did it, I wonder if any of many murders are done by men or even ruthless women from the USA go into Mexico to satisfied the thist of blood since Mexican Authorities close there cases as quick as it happened and no-one is ever found guilty.

    4. There are always those who like are more "active",
      On the US they see the crime scene and they know who to look for, while in mexico, well seasoned police officers, detectives and investigators know who to blame, and who to extort for it, sometimes even before the polesas themselves do it, or the melitary.

    3. It's notable and true that a lot of Californians live there because this is so 'foreign' in their culture.Yes there are South Americans,Central Americans but hey they are somewhat more used to this,the organized crime.I think the majority that live there are from USA at a much higher rate then say San Michael de Allende at 12%.

    4. San Miguel de Allende is for people with MOOLAH, even their mexican servants are not welcome to have homes anywhere near the city these days, it is all reserved for the moneyed, usually gringos or successful mexican narcos.
      I don't think Gringos living in poor tijuana areas have all that money but still can be amazed by all the crime...

  28. The story's writer reminded me of Charles Bowden(RIP)... able to touch us to the core for a moment.... then, we become mental quicksand forcing ugly truths into the quicksand of our subconscious to fester there and making us sick in myrid ways. And so it goes in Mexico... tomarrow's sunrise will reveal more bodies to passers by and to children on the way to school.

    And so it goes...and so it goes, and so it it goes in Mexico lIke the refrains in narco-corridos that get us happily dancing in shit. And so it goes.

  31. I surfed Km22, 38, 55, 58, & San Miguel for the 1st time back in Summer of 1978. The worst thing I ever saw was a traffic accident involving a people-loaded van & a wayward bovine. It was a blood-soaked scene worthy of PTSD, but at least it was an accident.

    Frequent traffic stops for false infractions back then were simply an annoyance tax in our minds, but the sweet & solitary waves were worth it. Ironically, the cops haven't hassled us in years, perhaps because I'm an old man now.

    I ended up renting a place @ Km55 with a friend as a getaway house for many years and it was perfect until 2008-2009. METH had moved into the neighborhood in a serious way and the whole mood of the place changed. Weirdos crawling around outside at any hour to this day, despite "guards" & a gate. Chemically induced crazy is my best guess.

    The secluded areas seem to be a playground for psychopaths now, likely chemically induced and especially virulent. The violence these people perpetrate is mind-numbing, eliciting a visceral disgust and sense of hopelessness at the human condition. It's 2017 and people are still torturing and murdering each other over stupid shi+, fricken ey. Complete lack of empathy abounds, textbook psychopathy in action.

    I live in Acapulco now, and "playground for psychopaths" describes Guerrero as well. Not meth...rat poisoned BLOW fuels the psychopathy here. That & abject poverty in many areas. I'm talking a level of poor most of you likely have never seen, much less be able to comprehend. It appears that desperate people can accomplish amazing feats of barbarism for a few days bread. And as you all know already, it is a regular occurrence in hot-spots throughout México.

    I won't invoke religion; but rather, reality. I've seen too many good people meet their demise for no good reason to believe in impotent gods. The people who do these things need to be put down. There is no cure.
    That's just the way it is.
