Are Mexican Drug Cartels The ISIS of The Americas?

In a move reminiscent of the brutal beheadings by Islamic State militants in the Middle East, members of a Mexican drug cartel have murdered a man and a child in an execution that was captured on video and later posted on YouTube. The video was obtained by Mexican federal agents from the cell phone of a cartel commander who was killed in a March 23rd gun battle with authorities.

After an apparent lull in the bloody turf war among drug-smuggling organizations, the video may represent a re-escalation in the violence. ABC’s Jim Ryan reports from Texas.
