Mexico: Baby Murdered with Parents Stirs Anger, Outrage [NBC]


See the cartoon, parallels are being made with the Syrian child on the beach that made the rounds not long ago. I don’t believe the graphic image itself that is causing a lot of attention is at the website.

Mexico: Baby Murdered with Parents Stirs Anger, Outrage

Laying between his father’s torso and left arm, a seven-month old baby is seen in a bloodstained white onesie, his mother face down by their side.

That’s the picture that has gone viral and is causing anger and outrage on social media. It was taken Friday January 29, 2016, shortly after the three were murdered outside a convenience store in the city of Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca state, Mexico. NBC News is not showing the picture due to its graphic nature.

Oaxaca authorities identified the father as 24-year-old Juan Alberto Pano Ramos, who was carrying his son Marcos Miguel Pano Colón. The mother was identified as 17-year-old Alba Isabel Colón.

The authorities are still investigating the murders and whether they are gang- or drug-related.

**Many have taken to Twitter to express their fury, some even comparing the image to that of the 3-year old Syrian refugee, Aylan Kurdi, who washed up on a Turkish beach after he drowned in the Mediterranean Sea. **

I don’t understand. The secular culture actually cares about a seven-month-old baby? There is outrage that he has been murdered? And yet it would have been perfectly acceptable to have done this same thing to him a few months ago.
