Mexico Drug Cartels use Gory Videos to Spread Fear

“Powerful drug cartels are increasingly using gruesome videos of executions and interrogations to intimidate their rivals, police and an already terrified public in Mexico’s vicious drug war.

In one video, a man with a black eye is tethered to a chair in his underwear and appears to be strangled to death with a tourniquet by his captors. There is a “Z” scrawled across his chest, for Zetas, a spinoff of the Gulf Cartel.

In another video, a man is slowly beheaded with a knife.”

Seems somehow familiar…where have we seen this tactic before…?
