It’s very possible this guy was picked up nearly at random so that Mexico could claim “We got him” while protecting the cartels actually responsible.
One person was in custody Wednesday but many questions remained unanswered surrounding the brutal massacre that took the lives of nine family members in northern Mexico.
Monday’s slaughter was carried out by cartel gunmen who ambushed three SUVs along a dirt road in an attack that left one vehicle a burned-out, bullet-riddled hulk. Three women and six children died in the carnage.
…The family’s vehicles were sprayed with gunfire on a road near Rancho La Mora in a remote and mountainous area where the Sinaloa cartel has been engaged in a turf war with another gang. Authorities have theorized the attackers worked for a cartel that mistook the family’s SUVs for a rival gang’s convoy.
…Criminal investigators said late Tuesday that a suspect was arrested and was under investigation for possible connections with the deaths. In a statement posted on Facebook, the Agency for Criminal Investigation for the state of Sonora said that the suspect was found in the town of Agua Prieta, right across from the Arizona border, holding two hostages who were gagged and tied inside a vehicle.
The New York Times, meanwhile, absolutely covered itself in glory, stating that the murder of Americans by Mexicans “highlights the long history of religious fundamentalist settlers in the region.”
In other words: What were these white colonizers even doing in Mexico in the first place, besides begging for some racial retribution?
All praise the media.
They’re heroes and they’re the only people in America deserving of free speech rights, because they obviously know best how to use it.
Well the NY Times and the LA Times found who is really to blame for a drug cartel brutally murdering and torching 9 people to death, including kids – the victims. pic.twitter.com/cvDgKKPqA7

Democrats have to make it the victims fault; if it was exposed as an actual endemic problem of Mexico itself, building the wall would begin to make sense even to willfully ignorant liberals.
Mexico so bad they can just grab any random guy and find hostages and weapons of fast and furious.
Media the cartels it could be worse they could have been…. Smirking Amish.
That little group was just a few of the 1.5 MILLION US Citizens living in Mexico right now.
Add to that, over the last few years an average of 50 MILLION US Citizens have visited Mexico for at least a day trip.
We are giving the cartels potential hostages, murder victims galore.
Something to think about before declaring war on them.
@kitt: They have the credibility of Congressional Democrats.
@Nan G: Let us recall that the Mexican government has taken numerous US citizens, some military personnel, prisoner for the sheer job of doing it and watching Obama do nothing. It’s a cultural thing there. Mexico is corrupt to the core and some think we should just ignore our common border.
GALEANA, Mexico — Mexican officials say a suspect who was arrested in the border city of Agua Prieta with assault rifles was not involved in the killing of three American women and six children.
@kitt: Probably just running an errand for Eric Holder.
