The marines report that the group of toughs protecting Tony Tormenta was known as the Scorpions, which is certainly sinister, though we prefer our gang names with a bit more obliqueness. La Línea, or Los Zetas, for example. After all, if you have to conspicuously call attention to your dangerousness, then you're probably not that dangerous. Anyway, we'll see if this group disappears or if they emerge as a name that continues to play a role in Tamaulipas and beyond.
