Three beheadings in two different states and they happened here in the United States, not Mexico.
Former DEA supervisor Phil Jordan says all three beheadings have cartel written all over them. They happened in Arizona and Oklahoma in the past year.
More here. The cops suspect that it’s related to human trafficking – or, as AoSHQ put it, forced prostitution. We won’t go into the actual partisan politics of this too deeply – virtually everybody agrees that murdering/decapitating Mexicans* and Americans is not a good thing – but I’d like to still note for the record (since we’re more or less on the subject) that the federal government really does need to come up with a better policy for dealing with Mexican narco-terrorist groups than selling them easily-converted semiautomatic weapons. Certainly the Mexican government would appreciate that…
PS: The person whose name you’re trying to remember right now is Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona, who may have been not so much wrong on the subject of the practice of Mexican drug cartel decapitations coming to America as she was possibly anticipating the actual trend.
*The former are easier targets, and easier to disappear afterward.
