Are death squads considered local mercenaries?

Asked by yaujj48 (291points) 1 month ago

I know death squads are criminal organizations whose primary action is extrajudicial killings. I was wondering they are considered local mercenaries/guns for hire because they are willing to be paid to kill any opponents people would hired, usually due to political reasons. I am mostly referencing to Latin America death squads.
