“Char” for Borderland Beat 

By: “Sol Prendido” 


This is a video that shows just how far the narco culture has extended in one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico. 
Where children aspire to be hitmen for the Gulf Cartel. 
This broadcast serves to demonstrate the lack of values and intelligence that their parents possess.

Video translation is as follows:
