One of the most popular and respected
professions in Latin America is that of the
sicarios (assasins). The killers in guatemala,
salvador and Mexico are recruiting many young
people, including minors, who are seduced by
how easy it is to earn money and the respect and
fear they receive. These young murderers earn
respect by intimidating bus drivers and small
businesses, where the language of death is heard
on any street in the large cities. The experienced
killers sell their time and expertise to the most
famous colombian or Mexican drug gangs.
