Mexican Gunman Kill 2 Americans in Consulate Across Border from El Paso

We hear this week that Mexican drug cartels have infiltrated Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection along the Mexico-U.S. border. We heard that a Mexican Military helicopter "hovered" over Texas homes, apparently with no consequences from our government. Today we learn that two Americans, a  consultate staff member and her husband, were murdered by "drug gang hitmen." President Obama is "outraged" at the murders, as well he should be, but let's face it, if these people can "infiltrate" Homeland Security they can do anything they want.

The attack on the U.S. couple began with a car chase and ended in front of the main border crossing into El Paso, Texas, an area heavily patrolled by soldiers...." the couple's baby girl survived the attack.

Beheadings in Mexico?

A burst of drug gang clashes killed at least 27 people -- including four who were beheaded -- this weekend in or near the Pacific resort of Acapulco, one of many popular with spring breakers.
Beheadings are not new. An organization known as La Familia Michoacana:
...burst into the limelight on September 6, 2006, when 20 masked desperados stormed into scruffy Sol y Sombra night spot in Uruapan, Michoacan, fired shots into the air, ran up to the second floor from where they tossed five human heads on the black and white dance floor.
They left behind a message, written on cardboard: "The family doesn't kill for money. It doesn't kill women. It doesn't kill innocent people, only those who deserve to die. Know that this is divine justice."
LaFamilia Michoacana is described as a "pseudo-evangelical cult," who uses writings from former Focus on the Family's John Eldredge, who now  heads Ransomed Heart Ministries and authored Wild at Heart: Discovering the Passionate Soul - one of the best-selling Christian books in the "Christian Living" category, of all times. From Thump and Whip:
Eldredge claims that if Christian men are going to change from a pitiful bunch of "really nice guys" to men who are made in the image of God they must re-examine their false presumptions about god's character to recover their true, God-given, male identity as wild hearts.
I know you're not letting your high-schoolers go to Mexico for Spring Break. Right?
