Where the fuck did Thaddeus Matthews get autopsy photos? And more importantly, why the fuck did he put them up? That shit is out of line.
Info on the Mara Salatruch 13 gang.
The gang was apparently started in Los Angeles by refugees from the El Salvador civil war in the 1980s.
They quickly became known as one of the most violent gangs in the area because many of their founding members had experience or training in guerilla warfare, thus gaining a level of sophistication that superseded their rivals.
And where might they have gotten this guerrilla training? Perhaps at the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_of_the_Americas]Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, formerly known as the [url=http://www.soaw.org/]School of the Americas
Sexual mutilation of children doesn't really sound like gang shit to me. That's more serial killer/psychotic madman shit. But then there's this:
Members also left a dismembered corpse with a note for the Honduras president that “more people will die… the next victims will be police and journalists.” In 2004, Guatemalan President Oscar Berger received a similar messages attached to the body of a dismembered man from MS-13 members.
In 2002 in the city of Tegucigalpa in the Honduras, MS-13 members boarded a public bus and immediately executed 28 people including 7 small children. Again, they left a message written on the front of the bus taunting government officials.
Keep in mind this is all just speculation drummed up by a blogger wanting clicks. But if, as Matthews says, Dotson was a Gangster Disciple
, then there will be retaliation in kind. "Race war" wasn't on my list of "ways things can get worse." Perhaps I need to broaden my thinking.
Wikpedia on MS-13
Members of MS-13, like members of most modern American gangs, utilize a system of hand signs for purposes of identification and communication. One of the most commonly displayed is the "devil's head" (formed by extending the index and little fingers of the hand while tucking in the middle and ring fingers with the thumb), which forms an M when displayed upside down. This hand sign is similar to the same symbol commonly seen displayed by heavy metal musicians and their fans, and it is alleged that the founders of MS-13 copied the hand sign after having seen it at concerts.
