S is for Sicario: an "assasin" or hitman for the cartels. The word has roots back to Roman times. Sicarios are sometimes young and "throw-away" bodies recruited by the cartels, but
can also be well-trained military deserters or police (e.g. Los Zetas). Some have been trained in the U.S. by the FBI.
