Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Military Finds Hideout of Zetas in Shacks in Nuevo León

Saturday, May 7, 2011 |


After the violent confrontation two days ago in the Northwest Bypass in the town of Escobedo, Nuevo Leon, a new operation was conducted by the military where they managed to free several people that had been abducted.

The Mexican military descended in a place resembling a wasteland in the town of Escobedo, within the city limits of El Carmen, where they found three small huts made of tin and cardboard.

When the armed group of men were surprised by the military, they decided to launch an attack against the military but the military immediately repelled the attack that prompted a shootout at the scene that resulted in one gunman killed and two others apprehended. Most of the gunmen managed to flee and the two that were apprehended admitted belonging to Los Zetas.

The military managed to rescue eight adults and a 3 year old baby who had been abducted and all had been brutally tortured, except for the child. Official reports revealed that the criminals beat the victims with heavy wooden paddles and some had burns to their bodies. Local paramedics arrived to the scene to treat the victims and transport them to the hospital.

In the shacks the military confiscated seven long guns, a handgun, three grenades, magazines, ammunition and radio communication devices.

They also seized six vehicles; narcobanners signed by Los Zetas which contained the same message from those that had been displayed last week in various parts of Nuevo León. They found large heavy wooden paddles used to beat victims, an ax, personal items, water, soft drinks, cigarettes, and various packages Maruchan soup, among other things.

One of the kidnapped victims said he had been abducted since last Monday with his three year granddaughter, "I have been held captive since Monday, but I have only been at this location for two days, she is my granddaughter and I do not know why they took us. They unexpectedly went after me and picked me up. I don't know why they brought me here. I have been in three different places and also inside SUV's, and I was always blindfolded, there was another boy here from Monterrey, they beat us bad, the only one spared was the child."

My god, just the thought of a 3 year old in ther hands makes me want to puke. Even if they cartel wars continued I'd be happy if these types of kidnappings stopped. What a nightmare to have to go through.

They always get away. Torture, interrogate and get rid of them. No courts involved. No one will miss them anyway.

So much for the fame of cartels. Living under tin roofs eating soups. Fuckers don't even get paid and are desperate for money.

First thing I thought of was those posters from 2008 too. Things have changed maybe, doesn't seem like a upwardly mobile group, or maybe these fifth tier guys were just low lifes.

The funny thing is that the cars and the weapons are more expensive that the place were they live.

So these are the invincible zetas? Abducting children, living in a dirt-hole shack, eating maruchan soup? They should change their name to Los Losers.

Since the Zetas are mostly homosexual, I would say they are flavored with deeznutz or headcheese.

Buela posted that the Zetas are as powerful as the Sinoloa Cartel and ship %80 percent of Europe's cocaine. I find that HIGHLY UNLIKELY!!! lol... what a joke!! Zetas are scum and need to be exterminated. What cowards that mess and kill innocent men, women and children.

To say "Oh well, at least they didn't hurt the child," is like saying: 'oh well, at least they only killed eight people instead of ten.'

And if a child's parents are killed, doesn't that hurt the child immensely? ...Psychologically, emotionally, and for a long, long time...

To be unbiased and objective, I don't know how the lowest of the low CDS sicario's live, the ones in that Chihuahua City video, hanging the banners seemed to be living a lot better, but that was in a city. Also, the soup could have been for the hostages/kidnap victims....right?

Buela lives in the US and gets all of her information from the internet. She has no clue about reality in Mexico.

As long as the car has some chulo rims and a loud system, they don't give a chit about what their house is like. Again, call me a racist. I probably am, but it's a cultural problem Mexicans have in general. They just have no self respect and dignity. Oh and before you call me a "white" racist POS, know that I'm not Anglo so sorry. I am however a person who has manners , is chivalrous to people, have self respect and dignity all the while being a descendant of the
First inhabitants of this land.

You talk about "self respect" but look at Indians you have a huge drinking problem and have high levels of poverty yet you were the "first inhabitants of this land" and you come here and talk about "self respect and dignity." jajajaja pathetic!! Get over your self!! And Second "some chulo rims and a loud system," just shows you have no clue what you are talking about moron!!
