(General Bravo, Mexico) More violence along the southern border.
Police recovered the bodies of six men -- who had been blindfolded, handcuffed and shot to death -- packed inside a pickup truck on the side of a highway leading to the Texas border.
Authorities discovered the victims, who were not identified, on Sunday in General Bravo, a town about 55 miles from Reynosa, across the border from McAllen, said Camerino Ortiz, a spokesman for police in General Bravo.
Ortiz said one of those killed was in the cabin and the rest were stashed in the back of the truck. All had their eyes covered with bandages and were handcuffed with their feet tied.
Investigators recovered more than 50 bullet casings near the abandoned pickup. There were no arrests in the case. It wasn't immediately known why the men were killed.
No arrests and no motive in six murders committed of men on their way to Texas. Unfortunately, the discovery of unexplained murders has become commonplace. It's the way of life along the border. Not surprising, the level of corruption and lawlessness in northern Mexico has caused the violence to spill across the border into the U.S.
Meanwhile, pending legislation to crack down on illegal aliens and build a security wall on the border has energized activists to hold large protest marches throughout the nation. The choice seems simple to me. Either stop the flood of non-citizens or expect the United States to become a nation ruled by corruption and lawlessness. Selective enforcement of the law fosters disregard for the law.

Ten Chinese and eleven Mexican citizens were found in a locked tractor-trailer rig trying to illegally enter the U.S. at a South Texas checkpoint.
Two illegals aliens were killed and an unknown number captured after a police chase ended in a crash. The driver will be held pending smuggling charges. The other illegals will be handed over to the Border Patrol.
Federal agents are investigating a report of the Mexican military being involved with a drug smuggling operation in Hudspeth County, Texas.
These are just a few recent examples. It would probably take a supercomputer and a network of data accumulators to track all the crimes and unpunished perpetrators along the imaginary southern border.
