This Can't Be Happening In America

Where in the world can you read that a 13 year old teenager murders his 16 year old brother in order to take over the family narcotics trafficking business? Mexico? Boliva?

How about a few miles away from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.

The 13 year old, Mykel Mendes, killed his big brother, Jordan, so he could take control over the drug ring that their father had started. The father, Manual Mendes, is currently serving a 35 federal sentence year for - what else - drug trafficking.

Jordan was found shot, stabbed 27 times and dumped into a pit, where his body was torched. Another 13-year-old friend and a 20-year-old cousin also are charged with murder.

Madness. Utter madness.
