Minerva Bautista Gomez Survives Assasination Attempt

Minerva was* a high-level security official in the Mexican government. Last spring, narcoterrorists from the La Familia cartel attempted to permanently retire her. They failed, in part, thanks to the armored SUV she was riding in. "Dozens of gunmen fired more than 2,700 deafening rounds of ammunition" at the top-of-the-line vehicle. Unfortunately, four people did die in the attack: two motorists and two of Minerva's bodyguards.

The video shows what the SUV looked like after the assasination attempt; it is exhibited as a "trophy" (trofeo) by the narcoterrorists. Sick. So sick.

H/T: Mr. R.

*A retired army commander now holds the job.
