Still another reason to close the border to Mexican trucks: Mutilated bodies

The ruthless narcos that the Mexican government can't control are now chopping off more than heads. Recently five mutilated bodies were discovered in Monterrey. Reports Borderland Beat,
Gunmen dumped the five dead men, their heads, arms and legs chopped off, on a street in the town of Montemorelos south of Monterrey just before dawn, police and witnesses said, in a escalation of killings since the New Year blamed on drug cartels and alarming locals and businesses.

TeamsterNation is quite certain that Mexican law enforcement officials are more concerned about the corpses littering Mexico's streets than they are about highway safety. Borderland Beats says Monterrey's chamber of commerce agrees:
"The police don't have the capacity to patrol the streets. Business people know that they are opening and running their companies at their own risk," said Juan Ernesto Sandoval, the head of Monterrey's commerce, retail and tourism chamber.

Today, Jerry Corsi at WorldNetDaily confirmed that Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) has requested a hearing on Mexican trucks. Read Corsi's story here.
