Cartel cannibals! Mexican drug lords force new members to kill rivals and eat their HEARTS

A cannibal drug cartel in Mexico is forcing new members into cannibalism and has begun sharing videos of gang members feasting on the hearts of their enemies.

The Jalisco New Generation cartel filmed sickening footage last month of one of its members eating a rival’s heart straight out of his mutilated chest in Zacatecas state.

The CJNG gang has become one of the most powerful cartels in the country and operates in at least 35 states of Mexico and Puerto Rico.

It is led by Nemesio “El Mencho” Oseguera Cervantes and has begun using cannibalism as part of his methods of intimidation.

Shocking public displays of aggression are used to threaten rival groups and demonstrate superiority, as part of an arsenal of methods that include displaying the group’s new weapons and military technology.

The disturbing images, too graphic to be published, show a gang member hunched over the body of a rival gangster from the Sinaloa cartel, formerly led by El Chapo.

The victim’s hands were tied and his chest appeared to have been torn open.

The CJNG member rips the bites out of the man’s heart before pretending to offer the lifeless figure a try.

Part of another dead body is visible in the background, with the shadow of another Jalisco member cutting it down.

Dr. Robert Bunker, a security analyst and expert on Mexican cartels, said the display of violence was used to intimidate a rival gang.

Mexican cartels are now using improvised explosive devices as well as drones to drop bombs.

During a war raging between drug cartels in western Mexico, gangs began using Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) on the roads to disable army vehicles.

A self-defense movement in the city of Tepalcatepec in western Michoacán said improvised landmines severely damaged an army armored car late last week.

A spokesman for the movement, which is fighting the Jalisco cartel, provided photographs showing a disabled army light armored vehicle on the road with damage he said was caused by such a mine.

The spokesman, who declined to be named for fear of reprisals, said the explosion took place last Saturday in the town of Taykstan, near Tepalcatepec, where locals have been fighting Jalisco militants for months.

Warring gangs already often use makeshift armored cars and drones modified to drop small bombs. But this will be the first time cartels have successfully used IEDs in Mexico.

The Mexican Army did not respond to a request for specific comments on IEDs. But the defense ministry said on Saturday army patrols were attacked four times in the area with explosives, makeshift armored vehicles and gunfire, in which 10 soldiers were wounded. The department did not specify what type of explosives they are talking about.

He told the Daily Beast, “Given the warning to other Mayo Zambada militants, the video was clearly created for PSYOPS purposes by the CJNG unit involved in the incident, who then uploaded it to social media.”

Cannibalism became part of the Jalisco initiation around 2015, when recruits were forced to eat raw human hearts in the cartel’s “schools of terror”.

Speaking at the time, Alfredo Castillo, Michoacan’s federal security commissioner, denied widespread cannibalism.

But he acknowledged that there are various pieces of evidence indicating that heart-eating was part of a macabre initiation that Moreno used to root out moles or test the loyalty of his men.

“The ritual ranged from dismembering the people they intended to kill, to sometimes giving the heart,” Castillo said.

He did not specify who testified, nor did he specify when or where the alleged initiation rituals took place.

CJNG recruits are taught combat techniques and the use of small arms in camps set up in secret locations throughout Zacatecas.

And for three to four months, they are usually forced to eat human flesh as part of their training.

They are taught to cut their fingers and toes, the cartel’s favorite torture method for interrogating rival gangs.

Later in the course of training, they are forced to eat severed fingers, and if they pass this test, recruits are transferred to larger body parts.

A former CJNG member told the Daily Beast, “They are given the choice of one of these pieces to eat in front of the boss.

“You have to do this without reacting or vomiting or you will be beaten. If you didn’t want [eat human flesh] they wouldn’t let you leave, you were there.

The grueling training also included forcing recruits to sleep next to dead bodies at night to desensitize them.

Recruits who violate the cartel’s rules, such as not revealing the location of the terror school, are brutally murdered in front of other potential cartel members.

Experts say vicious initiations instill a distorted sense of loyalty to the cartel, destroying the recruits’ sense of identity.
