Having survived two assassination attempts, Mexican mayor found beaten to death
 
Maria Santos Gorrostieta had been stabbed, beaten and burned
She defied Mexico’s powerful drug gangs, who twice tried to gun her down previously
She was kidnapped in broad daylight in front of her terrified daughter 
The former mayor leaves behind three children
This is an absolutely heart-wrenching and tragic story. If anybody ever dismisses wanting to end the nonsensical US drug war and the cause of drug legalization as something frivolous and self-serving to potheads, make sure you link them this article. 50000 Mexican people have died in cartel violence since 2006. How in the world do people anywhere in the world find this acceptable?
