'They are sending a clear message... that THEY rule Mexico':


Dozens of masked men are heard in video saying they are 'people of Mencho,' a nickname used by Jalisco New Generation Cartel boss Nemesio Oseguera

Almost all of the uniformed men wearing bulletproof vests wield assault rifles, and some appear to have belt-fed machine guns or .50 caliber sniper rifles 

Authorities said they are investigating the video to determine its authenticity
