There’s been an arrest in the horrible massacre of Mormons in Mexico, and no one should be surprised that it was a police chief in a neighboring town. From the Daily Beast:
Mexican authorities have arrested a municipal police chief for his suspected links to a cartel massacre that killed three American women and six children from Mormon families last month in Sonora, Mexico. Fidel Alejandro Villegas, police chief of the municipality of Janos, is suspected to have ties to organized crime, according to Mexican media outlets. The details of his role in the massacre are still unclear.
Even the Mormons who live in Mexico know that they cannot trust the police, which is why they provide armed defense for themselves against the despicably evil drug cartels.
Here’s a video of the aftermath of the attack:
More from the Daily Beast:
Authorities have pointed to the possibility that the members of a fundamentalist Mormon community could have been mistaken as another cartel group. Several suspects have been arrested in Mexico in connection with the ambush, which claimed vast media attention and incited outrage across the U.S. and Mexico.
The entire history of the Mormons in Mexico is a really fascinating one. There’s a great documentary from Vice News from seven years ago that recalls a lot of it. And in fact, the very last sentence of the documentary almost predicts something like this very massacre.
If anything, the only thing that surprises me is that they arrested anyone at all…
