Here we go again. Another American family has been caught in the crossfire of cartel violence and a 13 year old american citizen has been killed as a result. This comes only weeks after a similar attack. How much longer do we need to put up with Mexicos corrupt bullshit before the cartel is treated like the terrorist they are?

FoxNews reports a family from Oklahoma, returning to the U.S. after visiting relatives in Mexico, was attacked by gunmen, and one relative says “bullets were everywhere” during the fatal incident in the sparsely traveled area near the Texas border,

Oscar Castillo López, 13, was killed, while a 10-year-old relative was among four wounded in the attack, according to the attorney general’s office in the state of Tamaulipas.

Jose Mendoza, one of the family members who survived the attack, told FOX25 that on Saturday night, the family was on a two-lane highway paralleling the U.S.-Mexico border in Ciudad Mier.

Mendoza, said he was driving a car with his niece and her two sons inside when they started being chased by another vehicle. The family was returning from a holiday visit to relatives in the state of San Luis Potosi in vehicles with Oklahoma license plates.
