Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

23 Seconds in Monterrey in 2007

Saturday, June 26, 2010 |

Sometimes these executions move very fast and the sicarios will kill anyone who is nearby. This a video that happened in Monterrey in April 2007 in a jewelry store. Killed was a police commander (the target), his wife, the sales lady and an unarmed guard by the door. One of the sicarios was injured by one of his own people and was rescued.

We show this video just to give an idea how fast and cold blooded these sicarios can be.



In the seconds before the gunmen burst into the tiny Lozano Garza jewelry store in this city's downtown, three shoppers browsed the display cases.

An unarmed security guard sat by the door.

Then three men with assault rifles ran in, one after the other, the muzzles of their weapons ablaze.

By the time anyone reacted to the gunfire, it was too late. The four people collapsed in the barrage of bullets. One of the gunmen helped another, apparently wounded by a comrade, out of the store. Before the last killer fled, he fired final shots into a customer and the guard.

Twenty-three seconds after they came, the gunmen disappeared into the traffic of busy Francisco Madero Avenue, lined with hardware and lighting shops, taco vendors and newsstands. The page of a catalog on one case fluttered in the breeze.

The killers left the jewelry. Nor did they touch the cash register. They paid no heed to the three video cameras that recorded the entire scene.

Lying dead that afternoon of March 14, 2007, were an off-duty police commander and his wife, Benjamin Espinosa and Griselda Melendez, who apparently were shopping for a religious medallion in gratitude for a successful intestinal operation on their hospitalized infant daughter.

Amazing. How a species turns completely on its own for nothing more than fleeting fleshly "gains". Sickening.

It was sad. The police commander was a target for the gunmen. They killed him, but the bastards killed other innocent customers and staff in that shop! It was flamming horrible. I feel bad for those victims' families and friends. Life's not fair. Have they been found and arrested yet? It's two years now eh?
