Anonymous Hacker Group Threatens Mexico's Zetas Drug Cartel.mp4

A man who allegedly denounced the posters on social networks was found beheaded in the border city of Nuevo Laredo, in the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, more than a month after the murder of a journalist for the same reasons.The body of man found in the early hours of Wednesday, November 9, showed signs of having been tortured. He was accompanied by a message that the victim referred to as "scraper," the name of the user that the website supposedly moderate Live Nuevo Laredo (http://www.nuevolaredoenvivo.es.tl). Live Nuevo Laredo is used by local people to report crimes of drug trafficking, warn of risks they may face citizens in neighborhoods of the city or on highways and care recommendations that must have to avoid being attacked by the violent group the Zetas.A message on the chat web page stated that "the deceased at the hands of organized crime, true self died but we can not confirm nor verify if the person they say," and appealed to participants not disclose personal data. "We are all anonymous," said Danlaredo someone with the nickname, "the only way to know is that we disclose ourselves."

This is the fourth murder in Nuevo Laredo since September, where citizens have been murdered for exposing the drug cartels in social networks.The decapitated body of journalist Mary Elizabeth Macias was found by police in Mexico, Saturday, September 24, 2011.As reported by the state attorney, Mary Elizabeth Macías Castro, 39, who was the chief information officer of the newspaper Primera Hora, had disappeared a day before her body was found maimed and half-naked, in the Christopher Columbus monument, located in the Madero neighborhood.The murderers left beside his body two computer keyboards, and a CD player, a message that was interpreted as retaliation for his reporting, making complaints through research and social networks.
