Yeah it's disgusting isn't it.
I find almost as disgusting the idiot comment above that he should be prosecuted.
Sadly it seems there's more and more crimes against the elderly these days, those lowlife parasites know the elderly are vulnerable so they take advantage of it.
People who make comments like that are not worth recognising. The elderly are becoming more frequently the victims of brutal crime, society has lost a great deal when there is no longer respect and decent compassion for our older members.

Torture and executions of suspected rivals and suspected informants took place until January 2004. Once the Mexican government became aware of the activities, a mass grave containing at least twelve bodies was found in a house on 3633 Calle Parsonieros, Ciudad Juárez, which came to be dubbed the "House of Death."[2] Santillán was convicted of trafficking by Johnny Sutton, but in a plea bargaining agreement, he was not accused of murder, and "Lalo", the former informant for the US government, now sits in a high-security prison awaiting extradition to Mexico, which will be according to him tantamount to a death sentence.[2] "Lalo" also claims that the United States Government still owes him money.[1]
Subsequent to the publication of the "House of Death" story, the investigative journalist of Narco News, Bill Conroy, received visits at his office, his home, and to his employer from officers of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, an event that prompted a letter by former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney reprimanding Johnny Sutton for "an attempt ... to intimidate a journalist who has reported facts that are embarrassing to him".[4]
