Gabriel Cardona: Teen Hitman For Drug Cartel (Photos)

Over a year long period beginning in June 2005, there were seven murders committed in Laredo, Texas that had investigators suspecting a death squad was at work.  They caught a break when Noe Flores was gunned down.  The shooter left a fingerprint on a discarded cigarette box and that clue led police to Gabriel Cardona and Rosalio Reta.

According to Detective Garcia, children as young as 13 are being recruited in the U.S. by the Mexican drug cartels to form murderous sleeper cells.  The teenagers receive six-month military-style training on a Mexican ranch and are groomed to become homegrown assassins.

Both were paid  $500 a week to be available for killing jobs.  When they carried out a hit they were paid $50,000 and received 2 kilos of cocaine.  The cartels put the teens up in safe houses around Laredo and they drove around town in a Mercedes-Benz.

Cardona and Reta are serving prison sentences for murder and have provided authorities with the specifics of their recruitment and training.

There are rumored cells in Dallas and Houston.    The cartel has chosen to recruit young teens because they are able to move freely between the U.S. and  Mexican border.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear......I am not judging these men. Notice where I said he is in no way unforgivable? I was being gracious and trying to defend him. God does forgive and offer a second chance.....even a third, fourth chance etc. Please don't go on the defence when someone is trying to offer support. Congratulations on the marriage, I wish you happiness.

2 every1 who is judging them especially my fiance Mr. Cardona y don't u take a good hard look at the whole situation. If u don't know then u shouldn't speak on it! They r 2 of the nicest guys that got caught up in a bad situation. Think about it if u came from a poor family and were offered what they were offered would u turn it down? They r the type of guys that would give u the shirt off their backs if u needed it. No1 is perfect so b4 u judge them take a good look in the mirror and at ur familys situation bcause 1 day it could b ur own child or 1 of ur family members! So think b4 u speak, u can't always believe everything the media puts out there! And u wanna talk about god obviously u don't 2 much about god, cause gods job is 2 forgive every1 and give them a second chance! Y dont u focus on all the rapists and child molesters that out there in this world instead of 2 men that were only try 2 provide a better life 4 their families!
I LOVE U GABRIEL! Keep ur head up, I am ur bonnie and u r my clyde! I won't stop till u r home again!

You know, I don't even know the guy and I can see he's a very damaged young man. He does need love, as does every human being on the planet, and there's only one person he will get that love from, and that is God. To the lady above, if you are who you say you are I wish you luck for the future and hope you can give him the kind of earthly love he needs, but I stand by what I said, he needs God, and I believe he is in no way unforgivable.....

I am hispanic fourth generation American and i live in a border town. Our worthless government needs to put the millitary on the south border. Border patrol agents and American citizens are getting killed, lets not forget the Falcon lake murder. The Zetas and ms 13 and surenos gangs from mexico are already here in the USA . Our government needs to STOP listening to special interest groups and enforce our immigration laws and put the millitary on the south border. We are already starting to see the same crimes happening in mexico in our own back yard.

This is no different than teaching kids to strap bombs on, and blow themselves up. These cartels need to be treated as traitors and terrorist. Government needs to use the Military, and take these guys out, because if they don't watch the assassinations begin on their part. Government officials will start falling like flies.
And don't stop in Mexico, go all the way into South America, and Come into the United States.
Stop pussy footing around and take care of business.
Or you can keep ignoring it, and people will die anyway. Either way people die!

This is just unbelievable. Young Hispanic men are such hard working, virtuous people. White Americans have to be behind this. I hope Anderson Cooper is on this case. He'll get to the truth.
