A top member of the Mexican Drug Cartel Los Viagras put a $100,000 bounty on the head of a Breitbart Texas reporter.
This week, Cesar “El Boto” or “El Marrueco” Sepulveda Arellano, a leading member of Los Viagras Cartel, placed a $100,000 USD hit on Breitbart Texas’s Jose Luis Lara. The former founding member of the Self-Defense Movement in Michoacan writes about terrorist actions by cartels and their corrupt government enablers in that state and beyond.
The assassination order was posted on social media through various Facebook accounts. A similar threat was also spread via audio recording where El Boto declared Lara a spy for the United States.
Here is an FB post calling for his murder
Audio clip from the Cartel Boss:
Only 48 hours after El Boto issued the threats, the Mexican Army and Navy followed an anonymous tip to a house in Morelos–where they arrested him.
Almost immediately after authorities arrested El Boto, members of Los Viagras began signaling each other on social media with orders to delete any Facebook accounts in contact with those previously used by their captured leader.
It is quite odd that the Mainstream Media who constantly talks about threats to journalists isn’t anywhere near this story. The reason this Breitbart reporter was wanted was because of how successful Breitbart has been at exposing the crimes at the border. Human smuggling, drug running and many more criminal activities are used to fund their criminal empires. Breitbart’s exposing of this and their commitment to real journalism has put a journalist’s life actually in danger, unlike the Mainstream Media who whines about their lives being in danger we no evidence of this being the case.
