    A tragic ending and no excuse to what this family went through, but also see other stories from other sources…water and land disputes where this family was warned as they were redirecting water to their land!

    • tip pullthemnow Liberals on here are sick. The definition of psychopathology is blaming innocent victims for their own death without that person expressing empathy for that loss. I came on here as a therapist to help people grieve. All I see is hate, bigotry and psychopathology spouted on here. A normal response that is considered healthy would be wishing the survivors be comforted in their grief. Feeling their grief. Questioning why? Even being angry that cruel people could do such a horrible thing to unarmed women and children. It was overkill. Im not a liberal. Thank God. But should caution those on here spouting hate for Trump. Blaming the family. You are exhibiting the signs of psychopathology. Get some help please. I’m off here. I’m too repulsed and need to go center my thoughts with love not hate. It’s toxic on here for me.

    • tip pullthemnow You are sick. You are exhibiting sociopathy in your thinking. Your response is not normal for such a horrific crime.

    • They think they can just go to Mexico claim the land and do whatever they want to the Mexican people. They deserved this, I only wish they’d all had the same fate.

    • @Manny Bike-Trails It’s because they think that just because “Americans” were harmed, that there should be a war. Just another excuse to occupy another country and force people in another country to live by the Americans laws and rules, also to take their resources. It’s always like that.

    I hope Americans remember one thing: “People Die so that you can get high!”

    Children, Precious children. Period.
    Men that do this are not men, Justice is going to find them.

    • @happy jack you should add Trump too- get the FACTS and it was more of millionaires involved that’s WHY Epstein IS DEAD…The expert findings will be OUT SOON, and some ( who knows what happened are ” not available ( holidays or sick) lol

    • phillip daugherty | November 7, 2019 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      Trump raped kids with Epstein too

    • @Eric Larsen hope the decent people of Mexico get them first.

    • Braveheart That would be great, but I don’t think that will happen until I think it’s safe. It will probably take the United States to very publicly take out the highest echelon of the cartel network before the people of Mexico can finally start speaking their mind.

    • @Eric Larsen you may very well be right…I am hoping though….it is so very evil .

  4. This is just sad attacking women and children ( los grandes contra los grandes para los niños sus respetos), but theres more to this story Lebaron family mormons in Mexico.

    …heartbreaking and dramatic story. Was this a random attack? The report only seems to cover the middle of this story…

    This story is absolutely tragic and I feel for all the children that died and were hurt. Having said that there is a lot missing from this story. A simple google search shows this involves the LeBaron family , they are far from angels. Interesting BBC story about them. Murder, child brides, polygamy and abuse.
    Tell the whole story CNN !

    • What kind of story do you need to justify kids and women being killed? You are sick!! And… I am sure you so are perfect, so you can judge others.

    • Night-Sparrow Cairns | November 7, 2019 at 2:28 PM | Reply

      Excuse me. Where in my comment did I say these killings were justified? It’s horrific.
      I want to hear the entire story.
      The LeBaron compound is not Shangri-la .

      Another sloppy govt psyop
      – Family member posts vid of bullet ridden/burnt car which has no audio or vid of fire brigade within perimeter of car
      – Another family member is on national tv same day being interviewed tearles – grief time line fail
      Earth is ——————–> AWARE

    • @PurpleYellowFan Our government GAVE thousands of guns to the cartel years ago, thinking they if they gave em, they’d be able to keep track of them…their thinking was STUPID!

    • @PurpleYellowFan Do a simple google search! Vice told about it in one of their videos, the same one that interviewed members of this family!

  7. There is something very wrong with this story.

      Yea certain people want you to feel terrible about this.. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the facts are.. Why are white people living in freakin mexico next to drug cartels??? Didn’t america fight a war with Mexico? We took land texas cali new Mexico is not even suppose to be are’s..

      We take like half of their land mass give them a piece they can call their own build borders walls now.. And white people are living there why??

      O yea thats right they practice something thats f**king illegal in America.. Mexico allows them to have sister wives which is freakin incest legal incest.. Cost are cheap yea but its all about being allowed to have sister wives.. This was completely avoidable.. Live IN America !!!

    I’m amused by how the media is treating this story as it pertains to describing this religious sect and the total lack of backstory leading up to this horrific event. Firstly, they aren’t Mormons by definition because the LDS Church ruling body in Salt Lake City doesn’t consider them members. They are instead a breakaway sect that went to Mexico decades ago to practice old school Mormonism (polygamy/underage brides). It would be like referring to a Protestant as still Catholic after they broke away from the Papacy. Secondly, these people have been at war with the local Mexican drug cartels for decades and have had several gun battles with them in the past. They also report to Mexican and US authorities any observed cartel activities. As a result, they live within a highly guarded private compound, are well armed, and have their own private militia. This massacre of women and children is simply the latest round of open hostilities between these two groups. But all that aside, it’s waaaay past time to send the full strength of the US military into Mexico and kill every drug-slinging cartel SOB in the country. The Mexican federal government is and always has been a corrupt joke in the back pocket of the cartels.

    • Wipe Mexico clean then maybe state 51?

      @Cito mp the great majority of people in Mexico are just regular people, that’s a horrible thing to say.


    • The us will never win against the drug cartels. These people get paid way more money to smuggle drugs than work a normal job. These people are extremely poor and are providing for there families. Plus if they leave or speak of the cartels they get murdered.

      @Paying Attention I live fifty miles from the Mexican border and Juarez. I’ve traveled all over Mexico in my lifetime. It’s a shithole. Any form of human depravity you can think of is taking place in the middle of the street at high noon. But hey, don’t take my word for it. If you’re a gringo, go stand on a street corner in Mexico City and see how long it takes for you to be robbed or kidnapped or both.

    We Need To Investigate Mr. Langford And His Mormon Community, He May Be Involved In The Illicit Drug Trade…

    • HONK LIVES MATTER | November 6, 2019 at 3:38 PM | Reply

      Yea bullshit, moron. We need to take over the Mexican government with the military and execute all cartel members within it.

    • I don’t think the cartel would waste this much ammo and publicity on the wrong target? They didn’t do this for nothing? And I don’t believe they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time and got caught in a crossfire?

  10. Somethings are not adding up this was wasn’t a random act.

    • Callsigncharlie100 | November 7, 2019 at 11:07 AM | Reply

      Yup , I agree. The mennonites and Amish in Mexico have deep ties to drug trafficking. Look up Amish and Mennonite drug dealer. Everything is not always what it seems.

    • They’ve been having problems with the cartels for years. The LeBaron family opened a gun club just so they could get guns to protect themselves.

    • @Jeremy Parker you know that as the fact( you were there?)

    • phillip daugherty | November 7, 2019 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      They’re just as dumb as the white farmers that wont leave south Africa

  11. Thats what happens when you deal with drugs then use your kids as shields play stupid games win stupid prices.

    What do these people do for a living in Mexico?

  13. It certainly wasn’t mistaken identity. Cartels have been fighting mormons in Mexico for years.

  14. I feel bad for the SOB the mexican government is trying to pin the blame on, this was an organized criminal operation not a lone person hunting down three seperate vehicles
