Mexican Mayor Beaten, Dragged Behind Truck by Angry Mob

 

Failing to deliver on a political promise can make voters angry.

Just ask Mayor Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández of the Mexican community of Las Margaritas, who was beaten and dragged through the streets of his village Tuesday by residents angry that roadwork Hernández had promised had not been done.

Hernández was injured but was eventually rescued by Mexican state police, Fox News reported.

The incident in Chiapas state in southern Mexico resulted in 11 arrests.

According to a Spanish-language report translated by The Washington Post, a few of the community’s employees tried to stop the abduction but were outnumbered by farmers bearing sticks.

Chiapas Attorney General Jorge Luis Llaven Abarca said in a statement that about 50 people made up the mob that hauled Hernández from his office. [RELATED: FlashBack: Remember when President Bill Clinton Asked PM Tony Blair For a Political Favor Back in 2000]

Hernández had promised to build a road in the part of Las Margaritas where the protesters live,  but no road has been built.

Some versions of the incident were posted on Twitter.

The incident led to a brawl as local residents fought police who came to rescue the mayor. At least 20 people were injured in the fighting.

The Chiapas Attorney General’s Office said Hernández is “safe and sound” and that he was examined by doctors after the incident.

The mayor plans to file charges of abduction and attempted murder, according to the BBC

The attorney general’s office condemned the violent attack and pledged to deploy more officers to “guarantee the rule of law and security throughout the state territory.”

“Free demonstration is guaranteed in Chiapas, as long as it is peaceful, but we will not tolerate or generate impunity for any criminal behavior,” Abarca said, according to USA Today. [RELATED: REPORT: ‘Whistleblower’ has STRONG Ties to 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate]

Mexico’s National Guard had been dispatched to patrol the community after the incident, according to The Associated Press.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
