    Default por poner a la gente

    I'm trying to translate this message but I can't make sense of the "por poner a la gente" phrase that's used here. From what I can make of it, it means "for putting the people" but that doesn't make any sense. Can someone help me out with this one? The message originated from México.

    Message
    :
    Esto le pasará a todos los traicioneros y por poner a la gente. Atte. Cártel de Sinaloa. Aquí está tú gente padrino.

    My Translation:
    This will happen to all traitors and for putting the people. Best Regards, Sinaloa Cartel, Here are your people 'Padrino'.

    This sentence does not even make sense in Spanish...

    Perhaps it means "...for putting IT ON the people" (in terms of the burden of **** dealing and violence), which would make sense to me.

    I think we can speculate many things. But the bottom line is that we cannot do an accurate translation off a non sense sentence.

    For example, I think it could **perhaps** be ( I deleted the "y" )

    Esto le pasará a todos los traicioneros por poner a la gente. Atte. Cártel de Sinaloa. Aquí está tú gente padrino.


    This will be the punishment to all traitors who use people.

    Regards, the Sinaloa Cartel.
    Your people are here "padrino"

    It does make sense. It is obviously a warning to unknown "traitors", allegedly from people loyal to the Sinaloa Cartel and it's godfather. The OP is only asking what the phrase por poner a la gente means. The only speculation is just how to put that in English. You now seem to get what they're saying and your version is as good as any. I favor: This is what will happen to all traitors who put it to (abuse, mistreat, etc.) the people.
