I’m a hitter for Fantasma/Ghost. This happened to me for being scum, for robbing OXXOS. My employer Ghost does not allow any of this bullshit here. Follow my example. Honor, Loyalty, and Justice.



  1. A Mexican wrestler fighting criminals.

    Good grief.

  2. On the cartulina are pictures (bottom right) i guess are taken from video stills possibly from cameras in stores ? Either way they ate setting themselves up as though they are doing someone a favor by killing young dudes they dont approve of ?
    Where does that end ?

  3. People could have been fed, or paid, so they would not need to steal.
    Robbing a store is not punishable with death, unless somebody got killed, now el fantasma will have to prove he did not do these murders.

  4. I thought fantasma was in altiplano... am i missing something? A new fantasma? The only fantasma i knew of was with cds
