These associates include everyone involved with the cartel from police to taxi drivers.

The Houston Chronicle reports on the video warning:

“‘You made a huge mistake by taking one of us. Release him,’ says a masked man in a video posted online on behalf of the group, Anonymous.

‘We cannot defend ourselves with a weapon … but we can do this with their cars, homes, bars, brothels and everything else in their possession,’ says the man, who is wearing a suit and tie.

‘It won’t be difficult; we all know who they are and where they are located,’ says the man, who underlines the group’s international ties by speaking Spanish with the accent of a Spaniard while using Mexican slang.”
