Anonymous Versus Zetas Cartel

From Newser:
Anonymous is getting truly ambitious: In its latest video, the hacker collective takes on Mexico's Zetas cartel. An Anonymous member wearing a Guy Fawkes mask speaks Spanish and uses Mexican slang in the video, translated by the Houston Chronicle, and threatens to reveal the cartel’s associates and businesses if a recently kidnapped Anonymous member is not released. 

The member was allegedly abducted during a street protest in Veracruz. “You made a huge mistake by taking one of us. Release him,” says the masked man. If not, the names and addresses of corrupt police, taxi drivers, and journalists, among others, will be released, he promises: "It won't be difficult; we all know who they are and where they are ... And if anything happens to him, you (expletive) will always remember this upcoming November 5th." 

One global intelligence expert worries that if Anonymous does attack the cartel, more deaths will "most certainly" occur. But a retired DEA officer calls it "a gutsy move" on the part of the hacktivists.

Damn Anonymous, you crazy. I mean revealing Mexicans in cahoots with drug cartels isn't a big deal because its everyone. The problem I see occurring here is if Anonymous actually does this, then guess what, you have a violent Mexican drug cartel after you.

I mean I know hackers think they are so cool and shit because they know computers, but a gun is much more direct. Especially a gun against your head with a coked-out Mexican drug dealer on the other end.
