"The drug dealers in Matamoros didn't call themselves Satanists, and they got their ritual out of a disgusting parody of the Palo Moyembe tradition that appeared in a horror movie. Sean Sellers said he blew off the head of the 7-11 Clerk for flirting with his girlfriend when he was arrested; he called it Satanic only after his "conversion" to Christianity in jail, and there was nothing ritual about the killing. Pete Roland told the person who he and two friends beat to death with baseball bats that they were doing it "because it's fun"; again, the "Satanism" was something he added later while in jail, and the killing was not in any way ritual. Not only is there not any organized Satanic group behind these things, the killings were not at all "Satanic" -- that's something that was added later, either by the press or by people seeking to displace responsibility to Satan and evade the worst consequences of their criminality."
