Violent Night in Guadalajara


Tuesday night was a violent one for the city of Guadalajara due to at least seven dangerous assaults including grenade explosions, shootouts and blockades of vital roads, allegedly by members of organized crime. One person is reported dead.

The violence coincided with the delivery of the fourth State of the State by Governor Emilio González Márquez (PAN). In June, the capital of Jalisco will be the site of the Pan-American games.

Due to the situation, an urgent meeting was held at the governor’s house with González Márquez and his chief collaborators. Later the Secretary of State, Fernando Guzmán Pérez Peláez, announced to the press that this Wednesday a committee of state, municipal, and federal functionaries would meet in order to evaluate the situation.
VIOLENCE IN GUADALAJARA

The first violent event happened at 7:00 pm when a grenade exploded in the municipality of Tonolá, in the metropolitan zone of Guadalajara.

Two hours later a public transit bus was torched and left burning beneath the Jorge Matute Remus Bridge, a new road that was just opened last weekend. The bus driver indicated that various individuals boarded the bus, paid their fare, and a few blocks later, insisted that he block the roadway with the bus. The passengers were taken off the bus. The suspects doused the interior of the bus with gasoline, then lit it on fire.

At 9:00 pm, on the highway to Chapala, near the Guadalajara airport, a fragmentation grenade was hurled at a tractor trailer owned by the Transcar Company. The armed contingent later opened fire on the tractor trailer. The driver escaped uninjured. The semi truck obstructed traffic until 11:30 pm when it was removed from the roadway by personnel from the Forensic Science Services.

Between 9:45 and 10:00 pm three other incidents were reported. The first happened at the intersection of Periférico and Morelos Streets where three minors were detained for an attempted Molotov cocktail attack on a vehicle. At 9:50 pm, at the corner of Central and Vallarta avenues in Ciudad Granja, there was an explosion that left one person dead. At 11:30 pm at the intersection of Las Fuentes and Lopez Mateos streets there was another attempted attack, but the suspect fled before any damage could be done.

The Secretary of State, Fernando Guzmán Pérez Peláez, stated that the violence was an “orquestrated attack carried out by organized crime” and called for the citizens of Jalisco to “act as one to protect the tranquility of [their] state.”

He further stated that during the course of the day [Tuesday] several members of organized crime cells were apprehended by the SSP, and perhaps the apprehensions were the impetus that unleashed the attacks on the city. Last weekend, in different parts of the city, five narco-mantas were located with messages directed at various state government functionaries. The narco-messages were signed by the Milenio Cartel.

On Saturday near the Miguel Hidalgo Airport, an armed contingent blockaded the roadway, hurled a grenade at a tractor trailer, and torched three vehicles.

  8. I had planned to head to Guadalajara at the beginning of March, but this and other recent events there will keep me away. It is a shame, as it is a beautiful city and the people are wonderful...but one bad night while you are there like this will change your life forever.

  11. I think they need to stop blaming the US and take care of the corruption within the government and the police.

    The violence has escalated since 2006, and the drugs were there before that, and not only do Americans consume, I am sure they are consuming drugs in Mexico as well.

    As for the arms, some of the grenades, etc., are from Russia, not the US!

    Stop being the perpetual victim, and take ownership of your country and show the world what Mexico is made of- a beautiful country and people.

  12. It's the distribution of wealth, social economic gaps, unemployment and "free trade" that is the problem in many Latin American countries. The U.S is also responsible for the violence in Mexico, Brazil and Colombia by financing this drug war thru Merida Act and other acts under American foreign policy. Why doesn't the U.S wants to end the drug war that has destabilized many Latin American countries??

  13. the USA is only a tool ,we are the arm and the fist, our blood is spilled to beat the rest of the world into submission, these latin countrys are doomed to become more ZOG'S, and will receive democracy/mob rule, permanent debt, and the yoke that they will never be free from ,just as we are, their lie of religion weakens the mind ,their moneylenders enslave the economy, and their mass media takes away the minds of the young, once they have infected a nation with their lies , it is never free again, this is what is happening in mexico

    You are not the arm. You are not the fist. There are many people who do not fear you. Many men are being trained the correct way to counter the miserable training received by the by the Z. Your counterparts were not trained the correct way. The training they received was elementary at best. Now they are dead. Your recruits have been trained by the untrained. Bring these people to us. They will die. Stop killing the innocents. Stop the cowardice. Line yourselves up and face us. Bring your hearts to be feasted upon. Your leaders hide in shadows and are not willing to place themselves upon the alter. A man of honor fights for what he owns. You own nothing but fear among the people. You will be taken and your heart will be taken. Mark this as my word.

  16. Usted ha puesto sus pies sobre el honor de México. Su estómago alimentará mis aves. No hay miedo de Z en Jalisco. Usted sangrará como buscan a sus amigos. No confunda nuestra furia. Sus huesos quemarán en fuegos para mantener los perros calientes. Usted no es nada sino una perra. Su organización. Sus pensamientos. Usted no tiene ningún contacto para hacer el reparto. Los Colombians no son sus amigos. El mundo es su enemigo. Le crucificaremos juntos.

  18. We are not the perpetual victims, I am just saying the truth, not blaming. We take our own responsability for our own country. The americans are the people from all the continent, not the people from US, btw. The people who use drugs should think of how many people have been killed or corrupted by what they are consuming, that is taking responsability, and also being able to look straight to the eyes of their children to tell them what is good from bad, which lot's of Mexicans can do with no shame, as well as some people from the US. You keep playing your "Brady Bunch" game without looking at yourselves at the mirror and being true to yourself. Don't give me that BS that "the guns and granades come from Russia". The violence has escalated because WE are taking responsability, electing the people that are now fighting this drug cartels. Again, when are the people from the US going to take responsability for their own acts and stop playing capitalists? The ones who have, are already living in paradise somewhere in Mexico as many wished they could, and can't because of what capitalism did to them. Still some keep bringing here their trash and consume drugs like crazy, as many Mexicans do, making it difficult to the honest people who live in this country. They bring their flaws and contaminate our country. You want to talk about taking ownership of your country? ...get real then! Stop supporting the people who bleed you in government, the people who put guns in your hands in the name of Freedom!? common! Now tell me, when was the last time you consumed drugs, Mister? My hands are clean of blod, as I have never done no drugs.
