14 Killed in Latest Ciudad Juarez Slaughter

Another mass slaughter against the youth of Juarez occurred Friday night, with at 13 people confirmed dead and another 20 wounded, some in critical condition according to official sources. The incident occurred at a birthday party being held at a private residence in the colonia Horizontes del Sur.

Six of the fatalities were females and eight were males.

According to witnesses at approximately 11PM gunmen arrived in four vehicles outside of 2069 Felix Candela st. and although the courtyard of the house was protected by a fence, the gunmen entered and shot the victims at close range with assault type weapons.

Forensic staff with the state prosecutor’s office recovered 70 cartridges from 7.62 X 39 mm AK type weapons and .223 AR-15 rifles.

Among adults who died in this brutal attack was Martina Cereces Arteaga, 30, the mother of the 14 year old celebrating his birthday.

Martina Cereces Arteaga was talking with a cousin, Lucia Navarro Jurado, 21, and several high school students that attended the same school as her son when a group of gunmen burst and started shooting. They were the first to die according to Francisco Lopez, Cereses Arteaga’s husband.

Martina was holding a stroller with her youngest daughter, a three month old baby who was miraculously unhurt. All of her six children survived the cold blooded attack.

Neighbors and survivors said that three minutes after the slaughter occurred federal agents on patrol drove by the house and that, in spite of the screams for them to stop, they continued on their way and returned to the crime scene almost half an hour later.

They also commented that, given the lateness of the paramedics in arriving to render aid, many inhabitants of the area took the injured in private vehicles to the IMSS (public health) hospital #66.

"I feel much pain and anger ... I'm sure they will never catch the perpetrators," lamented Francisco Lopez who from today will have to raise their children without his wife.

The Governor of Chihuahua, Cesar Duarte Jaquez, visited the IMSS Hospital on Saturday afternoon where he met the injured victims.

During the visit, he told the families of the wounded he would gaurantee that they would receive all the necessary attention and that any extra medical costs would be borne by the State Government.

  3. mexican police are a joke. They probably would be better off hiring policewomen. They cant solve anything, they proudly show of things they find like drugs or guns ,yet never find the criminals.

    The losers that killedthe teens are cowards that use guns on unarmed people.They hide behind a gun and there cartel lovers. If mxico ever wants to stop the violence they need to start killing the killers instead of putting them in jail with there lovers.

  4. Christ, this is awful. I'm so weary of these stories, which is so trite to say when there are people living it, but still it's horrendous, brutality at it's rawest. I'm guessing this was La Linea/Juarez, it's clear these guys aren't backing down, or bowing out, let them have the plaza, CDS needs to withdraw, one plaza ain't gonna kill Chapo. Let them have Juarez, and let the cities residents live in peace.

  5. I have followed this since it broke, facts are hard to establish but what I have heard in recports here in the US is it was THREE CARS and THEY CAME FROM EL PASO. The youngest killed was 9...but even that fact has changed from 14 then 13 then 9, it really does not matter as the killings are horrific but one wonders why they can not ever get facts right.

    The mother of the birthday boy chose the home to have the party as she felt it was "safe" ..this has to be another "wrong house" mass murder..it is heartbreaking

  6. That news is wrong, reported by mistake by El Paso Times, some of the vehicles had Texas plates and one came back registered to someone from El Paso.

  7. If I had to put my money on who did it I would say la linea.

    You mean about the 3 vehicles from el paso? that is wrong? I did not get it from El Paso times, though they are usually spot on, but I had the link posted where i read it also CNN and FOX yesterday both had the vehicles "3 cars all from el paso" on their crawler.

  9. When will all these killings end? Now there's innocent youth dying?! Who are these guys kidding? When everyone finally gets what they want, what will be left of Mexico? Who will be left in Mexico? A country that once was so beautiful, the people are amazing and the culture is out of this world. I love my mexico but look at what's happening to her and her children. And what for? Becuase this person did this and that one over there did that?

    When the war ends and the guns stop shooting and the killings cease, what will be left?

  10. Thank you PF. Came back a half hour later?!

    The neighborhoods have to get organized on their own because the police - any of the police - are not going to help them. They don't want anybody to organize. I mean like a neighborhood watch. They did it in Tetela del Volcan. They did it in Asuncion. A little vigilante justice might be a good thing for Cd. Juarez.

  12. THE MORE I READ I REALIZE HOW SIGNIFICANT THE US-MX PLAN IS...JESUS...READ THIS:

    **** Perhaps most important, Washington has given the Mexican federal security department access to its EPIC data base in El Paso on drug traffickers. This data base, owned by DEA, is global in scope, and is comprised of multiple data bases from about two dozen agencies. The data base has been in operation for about two decades now, and has been available for law enforcement officers in the United States, but not in Mexico****

  13. According to the father of one of the kids, the people renting the house were deported from the U.S. and there were also selling drugs. The Sicarios were looking for another person, but nobody said anything. After that you all know what happened.

  15. J you know that Sinaloa Federation will never withdraw, even if they came to a peace agreement, El Chapo would eventually break it. He did the same thing in 2005 after the "Fiesta de Perrones" meeting in Monterey. La Barbie confirmed that in one of his interogations. The Federation is just too strong and with the government on its side there is no stopping them, they will eventually seize the plaza.

    I understand your point of view, but honestly not everyone in Mx is corrupt, and the US has done some dumb things but giving this info to Mx without tight reign and oversight will not be one of them. This is a good and solid plan, parts of which I have been posting we need for months...The intelligence and DEA involvment was given to Colombia..If they can control Juarez in this joint effort, they can control Matamoros, Monterrey, etc. This is productive and great, I for one have hope, plesase read the entire plan. It is sound. Be happy that something is being done.

    I am far from an Obama fan but kudos to him and calderon...lets see what happens.

  17. Sinaloa might seize the plaza, its just greed at its worst!!! chapo is choosing to kill and kill just to get more and more money.....he won't stop until he is the dictator of mexico!!! maybe thats a little extreme but he hasn't laid back or eased up as he gets what he wants everytime.

  19. What is with these presumptuous gringo Right Wingers who lecture others about a Mexico they know absolutely nothing about?

    'mexican police are a joke. They probably would be better off hiring policewomen. They cant solve anything, they proudly show of things they find like drugs or guns ,yet never find the criminals.

    The losers that killedthe teens are cowards that use guns on unarmed people.They hide behind a gun and there cartel lovers. If mxico ever wants to stop the violence they need to start killing the killers instead of putting them in jail with there lovers.'

    What makes this sort of remark so obscene is the sad lack of knowledge that the US government is actually completely behind this pretend 'drug war' that is being carried out by Mexican politician puppets of the USA on Mexican soil.

  21. i agree with buela.i hope this works for the best. if the U.S. and mexico come together and fight for the control of juarez, that would be a great start becuase the war is spreading and with the help of the U.S.'s technology, mexico can find these cartel leaders and incarcerate them or destroy them. monterrey is becoming a concern for me too. monterrey, a modern mexican city, experiencing such violence lately, is spreading a bad influence towards the rest of the country. i hope.......

  22. How would the gunmen feel about this, if their beloved ones get killed by a murderer? Victims' families and friends have my sympathy.

    ReplyDelete
  23. How would the gunmen feel, are u for real, all the gunmen have no feelings and no soul, that is why there is so much evil violence. Your government needs to have the death penalty and get rid of them all.

  24. This militaristic approach has been an utter failure throughout all of Latin America, and nowhere worse than in Ciudad Juarez.

    'i agree with buela.i hope this works for the best. if the U.S. and mexico come together and fight for the control of juarez, that would be a great start becuase the war is spreading and with the help of the U.S.'s technology, mexico can find these cartel leaders and incarcerate them or destroy them.'

    Don't you read the other commentaries that show how militarizing Juarez has actually caused the city to just disintegrate? The 'US's technology' has screwed up more places around the world than it has ever helped. High tech war just leads to major league destruction.

    It appears readers want to focus on the blood and gore rather than the hope I have in the US-Mx collaboration. This is truly significant, and for the first time I have a degree of hope. I am pleasantly surprised that they have targeted Juarez first, makes sense a victory there will provide great hope and understanding that they can achieve sucess anywhere in Mx. You, I and others that love and know Mx knew there must be US-Mx partnership, of forces, technology,intelligence to achieve control and peace. It was done in Colombia and they were no where near our border. It is not the John Wayne ride in and shoot em up that the Rambosos cry for, but rather this is an intelligent plan of action.


    I am guarded in my hope and enthusiasm but now there is hope where before there was none.

  26. Before some closed minded idiot blames the feds for their inaction and therefore " responsible" in some way, consider this;

    It is incumbent to them to assure it was safe, they had no idea where the gunmen were. The area had to be secure.

    30 min seems a long time to wait, but try calling for help in LA or NYC...30 minutes is rapid response.

    The blame 100% goes to the assasins. no one else. They burst in the door asking about the car parked out front, a vehicle unknown to the homeowners or party attendees. No one answered and shots were fired.

    @Ajulio

    I meant to comment on your Mty concerns. This is one area that the gov could have prevented. No one ever entertained the thought that Mty would suffer in this way. Adding to the destabilization is the fact that many people and businesses are fleeing in fear. They should not, as it adds to deterioration of the city. Mty is the jewel of latin america and as such the gov should have imposed martial law long ago and in essence locked down the city, they could have done it easily a year ago. Protection could have been sucessful much like they protect the maquilas in Juarez. just my opinion of course

  27. First off, Monterrey is nowhere close to being anything other than a Zircon. LMAO at the thought that the city is some sort of a 'jewel'. Good grief...

    'Mty is the jewel of latin america and as such the gov should have imposed martial law long ago and in essence locked down the city, they could have done it easily a year ago. Protection could have been sucessful much like they protect the maquilas in Juarez.'

    So you want martial law in the your 'jewel' city? God Monterrey has some real lunatics living there! You little rich brats live in a world all your own, don't you?

    I can't think of anything more destructive than martial law spreading across Mexico to make it quite quick into a total hell hole for most of its people. That's what martial law has seemingly accomplished for Ciudad Juarez, though to be honest, it was a mess long before even that.

    The solutions do not come from more police and more soldiers though. And they certainly won't come from the US. Mexico needs to get out of the US drug war game and begin to help out the people there instead of the rotten US tied business class.

  29. Of course, i always said that the best way to combat this war was with the help of the U.S.. i also said in the past that mexico should use colombia's past tactics as an example. But the mexican government has got to really fight back and fight back dirty with the help of the citizens. If the U.S. sees that their neighbors really want and are willing to accept help, they will help. Colombia found escobar by using the U.S.'s ariel technology. El chapo is another beast though. He is much more shrewd. But this partnership is not impossible. The U.S. should stay in juarez first. Secure the area. Work with the mexican military and policias. They should start focusing on tijuana now too before it blows up there. But let's wait and see. But buela is right, everything begins with positive thinking.

  30. Ernest1 you contradict everyone. So since you have all the answers, what do you suggest that mexico does? Because what they're doing now isn't working for shit. All im saying is they have to do something.
