Hey people, RiseMakaveli here, reporting for BorderlandBeat.com from the Tamaulipas area. Some of you readers might already know me, I started posting in the comments here and decided to join forces with BorderlandBeat to provide you with the daily scoop on the Cartel Wars that we're currently experiencing all through Mexico.
Because of all the insecurity and dangers of reporting on the daily events of the Cartels, we here at BorderlandBeat decided to stand behind an avatar and allias.. I've heard some readers explain how they feel that this makes us lose credibility.. Well we are sorry you feel that way, but for people who have seen first hand what this people are capable of, I prefer for people to question my credibility, as oppose to somebody knocking on my door.
You have to understand, this is a calling.. We don't do this for pay, we do this because we feel that people should be informed of the truth, and I personally stand here and vouche, that I will try and do this to the best of my capacity.
If anybody has any information, tips or stories or threats that you wana hit my way, you can contact me via email at RiseMakaveli@gmail.com .. Keep in mind that anything spoken with me will remain anonymous.
Recently a video hit the internet, supposedly from the "AntiZetas" group. In the video one can observe a captive prisoner who claims to be a soldier who is part of the Decima Zona Military in Durango. The soldier that goes by the name of Luis Miguel Garcia Miramontes, can be seen in the video being questioned about his connection with the criminal group called "Los Zetas". In the video the captive explains how along with him, there are two high ranking officers who also belong to this organization. Capitan Delfino Olivares Reyes, and Sargento Miguel Angel Rodriguez Esparza where both linked to this organization by the "Cabo de Transmissiones"..
In the chilling video, the captive explains how his superiors work for the "Zetas", providing them with military suits, boots and ammunitions. Along the course of the interrogation, the soldier also explains how he gets paid "4,000 pesos pesos" bi-weekly.. He then states that his superiors get paid more.. He goes on to explain how they provide the organization with the precise location of all the military outposts and command centers.. Reason why it seems that the "retenes" or military checkpoints, have been so unsuccesfull. He then goes on to say that the people who they work for are "El Alakran" and "El Mauro".. The interrogation lasts about 5 minutes before the last question is asked..
"You participated in the kidnappings and murders?"
The captive is then heard stuttering as he repplies.. "Yes.." After which there is a chilling silence for a couple of seconds before the camera is turned off.. One can only imagine what happened next.
In the video besides the "capitan" and "sargento", Luis Miguel also mentions he has a brother who also works for the "Zetas"..
Recently there has been alot of debate going on regarding how the Military is being used in Mexico.. From Politics to Blogs, people agree and disagree.. I think this is a clear example of how delicate this situation is.. If the soldier was risking his life and risking being captured over measly "4,000 pesos".. (roughly 320-350$) then one really has to look into the situation.. How much are the soldiers getting paid? You can clearly see in the video that the soldier is scared, and with good reason.. There seems to be some sort of "Savana" hanguing in the background, which is what they usually use when they're about to execute someone, to keep the walls and floors from staining in blood.
This is the first time that I can recall where we can see that the person being interrogated actually belongs to the Mexican Millitary.
