Joe Bruno on the Mob — Mexican Mobsters Casino Attack Kills 53 People.

One thing for sure, the Mexican mobsters are a thousand times more vicious than the Italian Mafia, especially the Italian Mafia in America.

In an attack of arson allegedly committed by Mexican drug dealers, 53 people were killed at the Casino Royale in the Mexican city of Monterrey. According to the article below, “Casinos in Monterrey have recently been targeted because some owners have refused to pay protection money demanded by criminal gangs linked to the country’s booming drugs trade.”

Casinos hold hundreds, and sometimes thousands of people at one time. A fire can cause tremendous loss of life.

Apparently, six men in two vehicles arrived at the Casino Royale. Once screamed out, “Everyone hit the floor.” Then a huge explosion immediately followed. Most of the victims died because of smoke inhalation.

One rule in the Italian Mafia, which is almost always adhered to, is “We only kill our own. No innocent people.”

Once in a while a hit is screwed up and an innocent person gets whacked. But you can count those instances on two hands. Maybe even one hand.

But to cause the death of 53 people because of a refused protection money payoff, smacks of barbarianism.

And please, when will these publications stop calling every nationality’s crime family “The Mafia?”

The Mafia originated in Sicily, and has branches in the United States. You have to be Italian to be a member of the Mafia. Mexican gangsters are not members of the Mafia, nor do they have any connections to the Mafia. I wonder if these heathens can even spell “Mafia.”

And if this isn’t the time to seal our boarders to illegal Mexican immigrants (I said “ILLEGAL” Mexican immigrants!!), I don’t know if there ever will be a time. What’s to stop these Mexican maniacs from crossing the boarder and pulling the same stunts in Las Vegas casinos, filled with Americans.

Pay or Boom!!

Nothing I can think of.

Mexico casino attack kills 53, mafia hand suspected

August 27, 2011

An arson attack on a casino in the northern Mexican industrial city of Monterrey sparked a massive fire and killed at least 53 people, the governor of the state of Nuevo Leon said late on Thursday.

Governor Rodrigo Medina announced the grim toll in an interview with the Televisa network, adding that the vast establishment, the Casino Royale, had been set ablaze using some kind of flammable liquid “like gasoline.”

President Felipe Calderon condemned the attack, calling it an “abhorrent and barbaric act of terror” in a message on Twitter and expressing his solidarity with the people of Nuevo Leon, of which Monterrey is the capital.

Casinos in Monterrey have recently been targeted because some owners have refused to pay protection money demanded by criminal gangs linked to the country’s booming drugs trade, local media have reported.

Medina said the attack was carried out by six men who arrived at the casino in two vehicles around 4pm on Thursday.

Some men entered the casino “and screamed out ‘everyone hit the floor,’” a witness who spoke on condition of anonymity told Mexican media.

“I don’t know if there was a weapon that makes such a noise, but an impressive explosion followed — I never want to go through something like that again,” said the witness, who fled to the rooftop with a friend to escape the flames.

The state head of civil protection, Jorge Camacho, said that the death toll was so high because many people hid in bathrooms and offices when they heard the explosions instead of heading to the emergency exits, and were trapped by the flames. Most of the victims had died of smoke inhalation, he said.

It took firefighters four hours to control the flames, and Medina warned that more bodies could be found inside the casino.

Calderon ordered interior minister Francisco Blake to Monterrey to head the government probe into the attack. Only a few years ago, Monterrey had been seen as one of Mexico’s safest cities.

But Nuevo Leon state and its capital, which is home to four million people, have seen an increasing amount of drug-related violence, with more than 70 people killed in Monterrey last month alone.

Nearly 850 people were killed in the state in the first half of the year, compared to 278 murder victims for all of 2010, according to a tally by the national newspaper Reforma.

More than 41,000 people have died in violence linked to Mexico’s organised crime gangs since Calderon launched a military crackdown in December 2006.
