The Mexican army has detained a 14-year-old suspected of acting as a killer for a drug cartel, an army official said Friday. The boy said he had been working for the cartel since he was 11.
The much-rumored alleged young assassin nicknamed "El Ponchis" was captured late Thursday at the airport near Cuernavaca with his 16-year-old sister as they tried to catch a flight to Tijuana and flee the country, said the official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case.
"I participated in four executions, but I did it drugged and under threat that if I didn't, they would kill me," said the teen, who appeared calm and showed no remorse.
just how violent is a 14 yr old? well, here's some video found on his cell phone after being caught, doesn't show the ending, but you can pretty much guess for yourself how dude ended up
quite a shame that my country has torn itself apart like this. it definitely is no vacation spot anymore
