Actual nickname is "Pozole Maker". Whitebread news orgs changed it to "stew maker" for the culturally challenged.

Oh good Lord! I thought this was literally an article about cuisine, not one about how criminals dispose of victims!

Yeeeeeeeeuuuuuck!!!

And: Seconding Ron's post. Double yeeeeeeeeuuuuuck!!!

Let's see.

Is this an argument for or against the legalization of drugs?

How do we feel about capital punishment for these guys?

From the article that Althouse probably did not read all the way through: "Mexican police have not specifically said whether they believe that all elements of Meza's story are credible."

But Althouse believes it all!

Still no advertising, though.

I predict more naked, penis, sex, and breast labels are coming right up!!

GREAT MOMENTS IN TV GUEST STARDOM (#23): "Whoa, whoa, whoa. There's still plenty of meat on that bone. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you've got a stew going.”

Even in today's depressed economy, $600.00 a week is not too much to pay to have people disappeared.

I suppose.

Curtiss, have you been to Detroit?

Does his Pazole soup contain Porky type people, or Beefy type people,or Chicken type people? Remind me to defend the US/Mexican Border at all costs and leave Mexican restaurants off my dinning out list. Us traditionalists have finally drawn a line in the sand: No Cannibalistic soup. I know that is provencial of me, and maybe I should live and let live, so there is no risk of an eminent Theocracy starting among silly, intolerant Americans.

Johnny B.D.'s off his meds again.

This is the second wacky killing of things in Mexico story I've read today!

(The first one was over at buzzfeed)

It makes me want to call my relatives and tell them to stay indoors.

Pozole really is delicious. Too bad in some places its name will be linked with this guy, just like that great Motley Crue song "Helter Skelter" was linked with Charles Manson. (Or did someone else write that song originally?)

Freeman Hunt said...

While still mad, Johnny B. D. seems less angry than earlier. Perhaps his rage has normalized.

I have a great idea on how the Federales can cause this problem and one of Barack's problems to melt away. And no its not auctioning off his virginity. Rendition him to GTMO and give him another chance to perfect his skills, while he earns money to pay restitution to his victim's families. What is $600 times 250?

A new job title.

And based on the above:

"But Althouse believes it all!"

Can you also tell me the winning powerball ticket numbers or is reading minds the extent of your ability?

jeff said...

"and says he was paid $600 a week for his macabre duties. "

"What is $600 times 250?"

This is America. Surely we could provide him with the technology to do more than one body a week.

Just got this breaking news alert which seems to fit in with this subject:

Rocker Ted Nugent Wants Drug Czar Job

Rock legend and outspoken conservative Ted Nugent wants President Barack Obama to appoint him to a high-level position in his administration — Drug Czar.

And if appointed, Nugent vows to hunt down and arrest — or kill — drug kingpins and their underlings.

In a letter posted on the Human Events Web site, Nugent calls the U.S.-Mexico border “a drug war zone” and refers to a “nonstop orgy of vicious, violent crimes against law-abiding Americans living along that border.”

Nugent, who has sold more than 30 million albums and serves on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association, writes: “We have all the laws we need to fight drugs. What America needs is the will-power and a renewed warrior spirit to crush evil and evil-doers.

“We need a Drug Czar who will commit to the American people to stop at least 50 percent of the illegal drugs flowing into the country within the first year of the Obama administration…

“Call me, President Obama. Hippies, dope heads, corrupt politicos and various other human debris hate me, which makes me the perfect man for the job.”

As Drug Czar, Nugent says he would “work with the Mexican government and other Central American nations to root out and arrest and/or kill the drug kingpins and their underlings.

“Working with the Columbian government a few years back, U.S. Special Forces filled Pablo Escobar full of bullet holes. Until assuming room temperature, Escobar was one of the world’s richest cocaine smugglers and controlled 80 percent of all the cocaine shipped into America…

“I would put a big hurt on the drug kingpins and consumers like they have never seen.”

Curtiss said...

Curtiss, have you been to Detroit?

Yes. I disappeared from there once.

Michael H said...

Nuge got it right.

Let the word go forth from this time and this place:

Nuge for Drug Czar!

Who would have thought 'No Soup For You' was a personal security waring?

If I were corpsified by a lawless entity I'd rather be pozolied in acid than Buscemied through a wood-chipper.

"Is this an argument for or against the legalization of drugs?"

Well, the violence in Mexico prompted the city council here in El Paso to pass a resolution that, among other things, included a suggestion that the U.S. open an honest debate on drug legalization. It was vetoed by the mayor, and the Council didn't override when warned by out Congresscritter that passage would endanger Federal funding.

Me, I can't think of any recent cases of alcohol, nicotine, or caffeine distributors engaging in campaigns of murder.

If the drug profits go away, though, we might see an intensification of alternate criminal enterprises, like the kidnap-and-ransom attempts that have recently spiked. On the other hand, the reduction in available bribe money and goon-hiring money might reduce those activities.

Since my father works in Ciudad Juárez, I'm just hoping that this mess all dies down relatively soon.

From the news story:

"... Meza was arrested along with three other people, including a minor female who said she was contracted for a social event."

That's a lovely euphemism.
