Suspected enforcers from the Sinaloa cartel travelled from Los Angeles, CA to St. Paul, MN where they allegedly "kidnapped two local teenagers, and then tortured them for hours at a house . . . in an effort to recover stolen drugs" which included using scissors to cut off the pinky finger of an unidentified 16-year-old boy as reported by Paul McEnroe for the Star Tribune: "the case is the latest illustration of the stunning escalation of drug trafficking in Minnesota, which has seen a surge in narcotics dealing, heroin overdoses and drug busts, including a series of raids last month that produced 65 arrests."
Meanwhile, so-called President Barack Obama and his political hacks at Homeland Security insist there is no evidence of spillover violence from the Mexican cartels into the United States.
