Photo: La Tuta of Knights Templar
One minute La Tuta speaks of the Knights Templar leading with dignity and respect then he gives a contradictory interview. “If things go wrong with a person, I have to kill all the family” said “La Tuta” cynically to foreign journalist who asked him a series of questions in an interview. Boasting of the impunity that he has enjoyed, the capo claims to be the ultimate benefactor to Michoacán. Claiming he is respectful and he and his “boys” respect a code of honor that clearly says Do Not KILL INNOCENT, this is far from the truth. When responding as “La Tuta” he said,”The family of the person with who is found guilty of a offense has to die. “ The interviewer goes on to call La Tuta a liar, a cowardly murderer, and a demented psychopath.
The Knights Templar have been known to massacre anyone who gets in the way of their drug trafficking. Although they profess to be concerned about harming innocent people, that is not their record. The truth is that Tuta and his chiefs do not care who they kill, the gunmen are without dignity and many times are thought to be on drugs leaving them brainless. The reporters wish to combat the Templar’s lies by reporting they are liars and that they kill and harm thousands of innocent people including women and children annually.
Residents continue to call on the Federal Government to aid them in ridding the area of the Knights Templar.
