An anti-Trump, anti-American, anarchist who left the U.S.A. to visit Acapulco and gushed about how safe Mexico is was shot and killed during his foolish trip.
American citizen John Galton who claimed to be an anarchist, a Trump hater, a Bitcoin trader, and a pot dealer was killed in Mexico when he went there to deal drugs, according to the Daily Mail.
The harrowing tale was captured on video by Galton’s girlfriend and fellow anarchist Lily Forester.
According to the UK paper:
The woman who says she is the victim’s partner, Lily, said via social media that she saw the gunmen go straight for her boyfriend, who she calls John Galton, and his friend Jason Henza, 43.
Henza made it to a private hospital with bullet wounds in an armpit, leg and hand. The hospital said he checked out that same day.
One video reported by the Mail shows Galton gushing about how wonderful and safe Mexico is.
When asked about the high crime rates in Acapulco, the blue-eyed anarchist with scruffy facial hair said: ‘I’d say it’s safer than any big city I’ve lived in in the U.S., like way safer than Chicago or something like that.’
Then he was killed.
These self-appointed anarchists discovered that their play acting in the U.S. was a very different thing than the real drug dealers among the evil Mexican cartels. It’s all fun and games to play little privileged American “anarchists” but life is not a game among real monsters.
American authorities substantiated the incident.
A U.S. Department of State official said the Bureau of Consular Affairs was aware of an investigation into the death of a U.S. citizen in Acapulco, but that it couldn’t provide additional information due to privacy considerations.
The three Americans had fled the U.S. to avoid drug charges.
It is a bit hard to feel sorry for them, granted.
