Facebook Refused To Remove Woman Beheading Film

A film of a woman being beheaded in Mexico caused an international outcry in October when Facebook refused to remove it from its site. There have been hundreds of reports about the video- but why no-one has identified the victim in it?. In the grainy footage, the woman is on her knees in jeans and pink top, before a masked man holding a knife behind her and says in a gruff voice: "Well, gentlemen, this is what happens to all those in the Gulf Cartel. On behalf of Los Zetas." The rest of the video is a gruesome 40-second cool-bloodedmurder, which caused international controversy recently when it was posted to Fscebook. " Irresponsible" was the word used by British Prime Minister David Cameron about the network's policy permitting the video to be uploaded. After a day or so of the impassioned debate on both sides, Facebook reversed the decision and took the video down. *--Los Zetas is the Mexico's largest criminal gang-began in 1990's as enforcement of arms of drugs gang Gulf Cartel.
*-- Broke away to form its own group in 2010. *-- Originally composed of ex-army men who deserted their positions. *-- Named after mexican word for letter 'Z'. *-- Ex-leader Miguel Angel Trevino Moralase (pictured above), known as "Z 40", captured in 2013. *-- Drug trafficking makes up 50 % of revenue- also engaged in debt collection, kidnapping and extortion. *-- Renowned for brutalities, particularly in beheadings. The beheaded woman is clearly identified and that presumably someone somewhere in Mexico must recognise her their wife, sister or daughter- but no one has come forward to name her. Dr George, one of the expets on Los Zetas said that municipal police officers work during ther day for public and at night work for cartel, so no investigation of the beheaded woman can be done. Also fear is the most powerful tool used by Zetas and rivals.
