A small coastline town in Mexico, Puerto Vallarta, media outlets have reported an increase in naked men being tied to posts. While this may sound like a good time on a stag-do, these men could be a part of gang culture.

Police have received a number of calls of men found naked, with bruises on their backs and buttocks.

Often found with the letter R, or the word Rata, which translates to a ‘rat’; somebody who snitches, or ‘thief’. Though they weren’t snitching when police asked who had done it to them.

In this circumstance, it would make more sense that the odd attack was revenge for them snitching in one or another. You know, if someone steals from you, you kinda just want your laptop back, not their clothes.

Police continue to investigate.
