  1. Was this guy in any way connected to a criminal group? If not, it is sad that you cannot live a good life and prosper in Mexico. I can understand criminals going against each other but damn, leave the Civilians out of it.

    1. 5:46 PEMEX is run by a bunch of criminals, with a lot of corrupt workers, even worse union leaders and this suppossed director must have made his bones there a long time ago, and now denying the huachicoleros their due, that ain't right.

  2. the smart oil buisness men left mexico and settle in texas.

    1. 5:50 living off their ill gotten gains trafficked to the US, the original huachicoleros were never smart, they are all just dumb criminals, living exposed to confiscation and deportation because somebody targeted their money like Ugenio hernandez and Tommy yarrington, or la chaky, still hoping to get her US homes back

  3. Looking like the blow to the head killed him than knocking him out.

    No ransom to collect

  4. He did not give money to pay he local cartel, gets killed.
