Spanish Ruling Party Politician Assassinated In Broad Daylight

Tyler Durden's picture


Until recently, it was mostly bankers that were the victims of a perplexing epidemic of untimely deaths, either at their own hand or the result of someone else's rage. Today that changed in Spain when hours ago a member of the ruling Partido Popular, and president of the council of Leon, Isabel Carraso, 59, was assassinated in broad daylight on a street in the center of the city of Leon. Her death was certified at 5:20 pm local time.

According to El Pais, eyewitnesses report that at about five in the afternoon, a woman shot Carrasco three times, on the Bernesga footbridge over the river at the health center of La Condesa. A man and a woman who were at that time walking along the river, heard five shots passed under the gateway. "We thought it was firecrackers," said the man to El Pais. The couple turned to the area of ??La Condesa nearest river and heard the sound of several ambulances and police cars. "We saw the body of a person lying face down with a woman standing next to her said."
El Pais adds that Police sources have indicated that they have arrested a woman for her alleged involvement in the murder of Isabel Carrasco. The Home Office points to the "personal vendetta" as the motive for the murder. As a result the PP party has suspended all campaign activities.

Judging by the market which is set to close at new all time highs, this latest assassination, be it for "vendetta" reasons or otherwise, is almost as bullish as the escalation of the second cold war over in Ukraine.

"Personal vendetta". Yeah I'd say so.

This should be good for another 12 points on ES by the end of the session.

This was an inside job.  This guy was 59 years old and just about ready to start drawing pension from the state, which they can not afford, so they hired one of the underemployed italian professionalals to take care of the problem.  This is part of the European Union in action.

Years ago, the poor slob would have light himself on fire. Now they are taking it out on somebody else..., we're making progress.

Spain will revert to the autocratic kleptocracy it had been as recently as the 1970's, amongst the cultural ruins of two generations of catastrophic birth rates and live for the moment hedonism.

Vendetta, as in "V for Vendetta"? But no, this chick got caught...not very smart. You might have taken out more of them. And if you had a cool Guy Fawkes mask, you might attract a following...

It has been estimated that there were as many as 10,000 political murders during the interwar period in Germany.  You know, after the hyperinflation...

The woman killed was killed by a woman who had recently been fired.

And the reason that she got shot was... THE BITCH HAD IT COMING!

The humorous, (if such things can be considered humorous), bit about this was that the shooter was family to a police inspector.

Wait, they didn't try and claim this was a suicide? I'm confused.

They'll say the victim hired the assassin to kill her because she didn't have the guts to pull the trigger herself.

See how easy that is?

she made a lot of enemies... at one point of time she had over 10 public positions (10 different paychecks coming from taxpayers) and she threated and insulted many others....

for those who speak Spanish, check this video, she won't be missed for sure...

Fire crackers? We europeans can't even distinguish real gunshots from firecrackers o_O

Firecrackers???? Really?

Pretty common assumption actually.  Most people think small caliber gunfire is firecrackers.

Incoming has a very distinct sound.

Personal vendetta was absolutely guaranteed the moment it was clear the victim was an elite.

If Google is correct, she is not too bad for 59.  Most likely this was a catfight over a beefbone.
