Anonymous abandons plans to expose Mexico’s Zetas drug cartel

Anonymous has reportedly abandoned plans to expose to expose Mexico’s notorious Zetas drugs cartel, after warnings that any such action would trigger a bloodbath.

Earlier this week, Anonymous claimed to be sitting on thousands of emails that implicated a number of people, including police officers, in shady connections with Zetas. The emails were expected to be released in the next few days.

There were reports, subsequently dismissed, that Anonymous was backing off due to threats to their own members. But it now seems that a fear of sparking a more general round of killings in Mexico has caused the group to have a rethink.

  1. This is far from the truth. The release was called off because the cartel released the hostage as agreed. Only a fool woulf follow through with a threat after a demand is met. Your local level experience is showing as you don’t know how to research. You probably don’t even know the name of the spokesman who called out and then called off the release.
