CNN just released a report citing that teenagers have been discovered working for the Mexican Gulf Cartel (one of the Mexico’s most significant drug cartels) as assassins. Said one of the youth:
I thought I was Superman. I loved doing it, killing that first person. They tried to take the gun away, but it was like taking candy from kid.
According to Laredo, Texas police, who apprehended three young men recruited by the Cartel, the youth were assigned to serve as hitmen in the United States.
Rosalio Reta, one of the three captured, was initiated by the Cartel at the age of thirteen.
