This tragedy is known as the Second San Fernando massacre (The first one took place the year before when 72 immigrants were killed.) You know you’re in a tough town when you’ve got to distinguish between your massacres.
In March of 2011, several busses filled with people were hijacked in San Fernando by members of the Los Zetas crime cartel.

The captured women were raped, and the captured men were forced to fight against each other to the death like in the movies Battle Royale and Hunger Games.
“Who is going to be the next hitman?”
In an interview with journalist Dane Schiller, a member of the gang who remained anonymous reported that one of the reasons for this brutal event is to groom new assassins for the cartel. By taking the cream of the crop they’ll have found the toughest and most resourceful fighters, and they’ll have turned them into killers already and broken them into the perfect henchmen.
