I believe the usual going rate for cartel ordered hits in general are about $10k. I also believe that the pay rate of the average Mexican soldier is about $300.00 a month, and the cartels hire them away from the Mexican Army all day long at $500.00 a month.

If I recall right, the Zetas were actively pursuing LEO's in Texas a few years ago, but haven't heard much about it since.

If the claim of $200,000.00 bounties on American LEO's is true, I'm greatly surprised that there hasn't been a genuine bloodbath north of the border.
