  1. So the Mexican marines arrested the Big Bad Chuy....

    'On Friday, marines detained 19-year-old Kevin Jesús Salvador, alias “Chuy,” who appeared to be an informant for organized crime, officials said.'

    Is the arrest of a 19 year old really big 'news, Brownsville Parrot, uh... I meant 'Herald'? I mean, when is reporting really not that much of reporting? I think this report qualifies as just that.

    'On Friday, a military patrol found an abandoned vehicle that had been reported stolen in the Terminal neighborhood in Monterrey.'

    Yawn.... Let's keep the war fever up though!

  4. Can't you people see this doesn't matter in the end. chances are high they will be released, will escape, or live it up in the prison complete with a bar and night club. Mexico is a joke of a country. Corruption is rampant and will always be rampant. There is no such thing as law and order in mexico. only thing is the cops get lucky here and there. alot of the killings are young punks with guns killing other kids that may have pissed them off or sorts. you have access to a weapon, well then go and handle up on your personal vendettas. MEXICO is a joke.
