    Yep, It is a shame for the children but you have to wonder what the background is behind this attack.

    "Evril died in prison in 1981 but six family members organized 'four o'clock' murders, which saw an eight-year-old child and three former members shot dead within minutes of each other in Texas in 1988.

    FAMILY'S PREVIOUS DEALINGS WITH CRIME GANGS:

    The massacre on Monday is not be the first time that members of the break-away church have been attacked in northern Mexico.

    Eric LeBaron was kidnapped in May 2009 but the family turned down a $1 million ransom demand and he was eventually freed.

    In June 2009, Benjamin LeBaron, an anti-crime activist, was murdered in neighboring Chihuahua state."

    Three words: Seal Team Six.

    Seriously, a tragic situation.

    Joking is what we do here however, I don’t think the incident was a joke. In reality, I’m astounded that any American who’s been watching the events in Mexico, over the past 15 years or so, would consider living there. Consider all the murders and kidnapping for ransom.

    Now tell me that this event is a complete surprise. These folks chose to live there, in spite of the danger, so, at least the adults share some blame.

    BTW, I’ve yet to see a news topic here that someone didn’t joke about. Still, if my post offended anyone, you have my apologies.

    No apologies necessary. I was NOT making a joke of the murders. It's truly sad that people have to live in such savage conditions (although the victims were American citizens). What I was not serious about was sending ST6. Although not a bad idea.

    People die everywhere. Even Americans. I wouldn't choose to live there but we've got a cave diving trip to the Yucatan in February, no one is remotely concerned and they shouldn't be.

    While tragic it's not the worst place to visit or live. We've got cities here that rival that level of violence.

    Mexico is dangerous.

    Personally, I think we should stay out. Close the border, line it with military, and let them kill each other. Not one American soldiers life should be lost fixing the mess they have created.

    If there are no consequences for these murders from someone, it will only embolden the cartels further, perhaps even into the same acts on this side of the border.

    I have friends that live in South Africa. Behind walls and gates, not fences. Electric wires, razor wire on top of that. No one is without an alarm system, all are armed. They police can't be trusted. They have marketable skills and could emigrate to New Zealand, England, Australia, and Canada I think. Yet they stay. They have generations there, and have been involved in violent crime against them, (but they were not a "victim"). They have no intentions of moving. None at all. It is home.

    I know, but I mean on a much larger, more open and brazen manner.

    Not my country, i dont care what happens to their people. We have our own wars right here on our own soil. Dont think so...???... chicago comes to mind. Lots of cartel there, but nobody seems to do anything to fix THAT either. What makes you think we care to try to fix mexico. We can`t even fix one city!

    I know your comment was very much tongue in cheek but it still was a dumb thing to post. No parent should have to watch their kid die, no matter what or who they support.

    This is what happens with strict gun control.

    The cartel was confident the Mormons could not shoot back.
