We Finally Know How 43 Students on a Bus Vanished Into Thin Air

(Daily Beast) Transcripts of newly released text messages between a crime boss and a deputy police chief have finally lifted the lid on the mystery of 43 students who went missing one night in southwestern Mexico. The messages indicate that the cops and the cartel worked together to capture, torture, and murder at least 38 of the 43 student teachers who went missing in September of 2014.

The students had made the deadly mistake of commandeering several buses in order to drive to Mexico City for a protest. It now seems clear that those buses were part of a drug-running operation that would carry a huge cargo of heroin across the U.S. border—and the students had accidentally stolen the load.

“The story of the massacre of the students in Ayotzinapa is like a Hollywood movie, but the events are real. They involve collusion between the police, army, organized crime, and a massive coverup by the Mexican government.”

The students were all enrolled at the Rural Teachers College in the nearby town of Ayotzinapa, and so they became known as the Ayotzinapa 43. The College is considered a bastion of leftist activism and on the night of the disappearance more than 100 students had been making their way to the nation’s capital. There they planned to take part in demonstrations to mark the anniversary of the 1968 student massacre at Tlatelolco. Most of the student teachers were in their early twenties, but the youngest—Jose Angel Navarrete, known as Pepe to his friends—was just 18 years old.

4. If this is true then the students didn't exactly "vanish into thin air".

10. And the cream off the top of Mexico's hope for it's future.

If the cartels had only asked the US who they'd accept as ransom for these women. I could think of about 74 million candidates.

12. And such a horrific ending to such precious life.

I hate to even contemplate the circumstances of their deaths. I only wish their remains could be recovered so the families and loved ones could find some peace in all this horror.

As for justice.....justice will never be done. These sadistic animals deserve a hell for eternity...but I hope at least their existence in this life will be miserable and equally painful to each of them. Sadistic Satans.

15. This is on the drug warriors not on the users.

Morphine should be easily available for those that need it. Use should be a matter of personal choice for adults.
