Mexican communities fighting back


Minutes before 6:00 a.m. on Friday, the community of Salitral de Carreras, municipality of Villa de Ramos, San Luis Potosí, faced a group of armed gunmen.

Witnesses indicate that armed men were traveling in several luxury vehicles, which began to open fire with AK-47s, and as previous occasions they had succeeded to bring terror into the community. However on this occasion, the residents were already waiting to confront them, an act that surprised the gunmen.

Several neighbors of the community began to shoot at the vehicles. In addition, they left in a caravan and chased them to a gas station, where the gunmen decided to abandon their vehicles, which fled from a community that was tired of suffering from the abuses.

Afterwards their vehicles were sprayed with gasoline and set on fire. They managed to locate another truck a few meters away from the scene and set it on fire as well.

Minutes later, in the highway leading to a community called the Zacatón, another confrontation occurred, where the gunmen managed to abandon an armored Lincoln truck and fled from the residents. As result of the shootout: three people were killed, three trucks were set on fire, and the armored Lincoln was fired at in multiple occasions.

  2. It seems to me it's going to get tougher to distinguish who the bad guys really are. With strict gun laws in Mexico, how did these town's people arm themselves? I still can't believe with such a large police and military presence all over Mexico, that yet a small convoy of luxury SUV's can easily travel without being intercepted.

  7. its time for the good citizens of Mexico to go rouge and arm themselves anyway they can....

    They need to take a page out of the Los Pepe's book in Columbia and start killing,, kidnapping and terrorizing anyone who launders money, defends in court or is even related to the Narcos...... Pablo Escobar was a more powerful Narco boss than El Chapo and where is he?..... Shot in head like Bin Laden by good cops (and Los Pepe's)..... who some believe included US special forces..... C'mon Mexico, stand up and take your country back from evil!!!

  9. there needs to be a movement of regular towns people who set up their own self defense militias to battle petty crime and also cartel gunmen that abuse the local populace.

  10. IS ANYBODY PAYING ATTENTION?? What is wrong with people defending themselves?? Why do Govts. ,politicians,liberals have contempt for an armed public. Police and law enforcment show up usually,not always, to take pictures and count shell casings,even in Texas it is seldom that the police can protect the individual. Mexico must relax it's paranoid draconian restrictions on the responsible public being armed.Every time I read about someone in Mexico defending themselves against these thugs I cheer big time. The true irony is that politics aside more guns less crime. Glad to hear of this latest act of self defense,good work.

  11. What excites me in this story is that citizens "organized", planned, and took self defense military-like actions. This strongly suggests military strategies and leadership. I suspect that some individual(s) are uniting in a common cause.

    The cartel "sicarios" use terror tactics selfish purposes (money, sex, powers, evil) but the citizens fight for family, peace, pride, justifiable anger, justice and other higher ideals.

    I am betting on the citizens.

  14. I said this before, put the Guns in the hands of law abiding people and crime goes way down.

    Look at the USA, the cities with the strictest Gun laws are the Cities with the highest crime.

  15. "Police and law enforcment show up usually,not always, to take pictures and count shell casings,even in Texas it is seldom that the police can protect the individual." That is why we are not counting on the so called Law Enforcement Agencies in Texas to protect us.i live close to the Border, IF AND WHEN THE TIME COMES WE ARE PREPARED TRUST ME!!

  16. Its about damn time that the Mexican people started fighting back. Take the guns from the cowardly police, scavenge them from dead Sicarios, barricade your towns and kill these Narcos.

  21. Just for the record... handguns are stringently regulated in Mexico; however, it IS possible to acquire a handgun legally, for the protection of one's property and person through, the local police department... at least in the state of Jalisco.
    Hunting rifles do not have the same restrictions placed on ownership and are kept by many people.
