    RUIDOSO, New Mexico -- A suspected Mexican cartel hitman has been charged for the brutal double murder of a Texas family. The brutal killings occurred as the family members were sitting down for dinner together in the Texas border area home in Hidalgo county.
    This week, Justice of the Peace Charlie Espinoza formally charged 21-year-old suspected cartel hit man Jose Carlos Campos Martinez with two counts of capital murder and set his bond at $1,750,000 before sending him back to his cell.
    The charges against Campos stem from a double execution where two gunmen stormed a house in rural Mission, under orders of a drug cartel, and indiscriminately sprayed several rounds at a family that was having dinner.
    On November 8, 2012, sheriff’s deputies responded to the 3000 block of 5 Mile Road to a house where five persons had been shot by two gunmen that had fled in an SUV, court records obtained by Breitbart Texas show.
    The victims included a 12-year-old male teenager, his 13-year-old brother and a 19-year-old woman, however 64- year old Ramiro Rodriguez and 52-year-old Castos de los Santos died at a local hospital as a result of their wounds.
    Not far from the murder scene, sheriff’s investigators found an abandoned Cadillac Escalade with firearms, gloves and face masks. For close to two years the murder remained unsolved until DNA evidence gathered from the crime scene and the SUV resulted in a positive match to 21-year-old Jose Carlos Campos Martinez who was in custody on another crime.
    Investigators told Breitbart Texas that they believe that Campos was working under orders of a Mexican cartel at the time of the murder. While officials would not confirm with cartel was responsible for the hit, historically, the area just south of Hidalgo County has been under the control of the Gulf Cartel which crosses its drugs and smuggles humans across the Rio Grande using the Rio Grande Valley as a corridor before getting its goods into northern cities.

    Heck, there's plenty of that stuff going on in our own region. I'm always armed if I'm dressed and a high capacity 9mm in reach when I'm not. We are also very careful about the doors being locked and the windows braced. You get paranoid when you get old! Can't fight a lick anymore!:(

    To be honest, I didn't click on the link and I hate to speak of and or perhaps ill or second guess some of the dead and who even knows how this "storming" happened (sneak or subterfuge perhaps?).. it doesn't matter.. perhaps keep your doors locked and use your peephole and a dog is man's best friend.. as is also John Moses Browning and his wingman.. Col. Jeff Cooper.. may God bless their souls.

    Its why the rifle or shotgun sits beside us as well as our EDC's when we're at home.

    Stuff like this happens as does armed robberies..
    And they have the gaul to ask us why we need the same defensive arms and body armor as leos.. Sheesh. o_O

    I think you aren't envisioning my reality. Im a young spry guy with quite a bit of training and keep my firearms chambered. You'd have to be a ninja to get into my house and past all our junk for me not to hear you.

    Most door locks are easily defeated with a good boot, or a couple of those 12 gauge door lock buster rounds. 2 of my boys were blowing some heavy locks with those in Afghanistan. Most of the construction materials next to a door are easily penetrated by small arms rounds too. Peephole puts you right in the line of fire. Cameras baby cameras. Remotely accessible ones at that. Wireless infrared beams set off interior alarms if the dogs don't hear them first. Those extra seconds before entry can be golden.
