Fighting reported in Michoacan: Governor's house attacked.






Thursday did not begin well in Michoacan. At approximately 11:00am a group of gunmen attacked the offices of Governor Leonel Godoy but were routed and captured by state ministerial police guarding the installation.

It was unknown if Governor Godoy was in his offices at during the attack.

By late Thursday afternoon armed confrontations between Federal forces and gunmen and the appearance of “narco” blockades were reported in at least ten municipalities of Michoacan. The fighting and blockades, which began at 5:00pm, were the result of the violent reaction of Caballeros Templarios to a Federal Police operations in the municipalities of Apatzingan, Aguillia and Paracuaro.

The heaviest fighting was reported in the Apatzingan valley and blockades thrown up to impede movement by the authorities were reported in the municipalities of Morelia, Apatzingan Parácuaro, Uruapan, Aguililla, Los Reyes, Pátzcuaro, Zinapécuaro, Quiroga and Maravatío.

Many of the blockades involved burning automobiles, buses and tractor-trailor rigs.

In Apatzingan, Army and Marine troops were called in to reinforce the Federal Police. The official death toll was four Caballeros Templarios gunmen killed and one wounded, and four Federal Police officers wounded, none seriously. Unofficial reports attributed to military sources at the scene reported approximately 38 deaths in the Apatzingan area alone.

The emergency landing of one Federal Police helicopter was reported.

Other rumors, more than likely false, spread that Servando Gomez Martinez “La Tuta” had been captured.

In Morelia, the state capitol, vehicles were set on fire at three of the five entrances to the city, on the highways to Zinapécuaro, Quiroga and Patzcuaro.

Highways into and out of Apatzingan and Uruapan were also blocked by burning vehicles.

While Apatzingán blockades were set ablaze with trailers, one in October 22nd Avenue and another in front of the colony's Sunflowers, which closed the road to Cuatro Caminos.

The first fighting was reported at 5:00pm in the city center of Apatzingan, which then spread to the colonia Infonavit Los Limones, the highway to Cuatro Caminos and the community of La Nopalera, where the fighting was intense and involved Federal Police and Marine helicopters.

Simultaneously, heavy fighting was reported near the community of Úspero in the municipality of Parácuaro, and the hijacking and burning of vehicles by groups of hooded and armed individuals in the other affected municipalities was reported.

The most intense hostilities were largely over by 7:00pm. However, intercity bus and taxi service was still suspended as of Thursday night. There were complaints from media outlets in Michoacan that authorities had hacked into and blocked their internet sites to sabotage the flow of information. All the sites were back up by late Thursday night.

  2. Sneaky + Coward = Mexican illegal immigrant. 20 million +. I know it sounds harsh but am I really that far off? They "sneak into the America... why? because the majority are to "cowardly" to take back their own country.

    Sneaky + Coward + Uneducated + Desperate to fit in + Lazy + unskilled + sub-human + Moral-less = Mexican Cartel Member. I'm guessing over weight and not to attractive either. What other reason would you have to pay for sex or commit the ultimate... rape.

    The rest of you of the "good" Mexicans. Good luck. It's doubtful to think that America is going to come in to save the day. Your government would never allow it... But I really do wish you the best.

    Zeta's, Gulfs or what ever cartel your with... Assuming you actually sounded out the words above to get this far. I can't wait for the day you challenge America on our ground. Yeah Yeah... I know your here already. I look forward to you trying to put the same grip on our great country as you successfully have on yours.I look forward to putting a bullet in your head. God will forgive me but you.... lets just say that Mexico is like the Arctic compared to where your going!

    Love,

  3. Frank,

    Meixca and other natives are NOT “illegal” -this continent is theirs --they did NOT have to cross the Atlantic-- AND they have the right to migrate wherever life is sustainable.

    Perhaps if you would be conscientious of your self-serving religious babble and your addiction to "illegal" drugs, demand for these would subside and consequently violence in Mexico, Central and South America would subside as well.

    Remember, in capitalism, demand dictates supply.

    Oh, lastly, obtain an education before posting stupidities that would make your mama shame.


    Regards.

  8. How does America's Drug use justify the violence in Mexico?? How do the drug addicts in America make the People of Mexico commit the atrocities on their OWN people. How are Americans responsible for the attacks on their fellow Mexican citizens. How does an American drug addict be responsible for the Murders, kidnapping be-headings, the rape of women and the torture of children? You Mexicans do that to your own people, and in the process destroy your moral structure and economy. You condone the kidnapping, torture and murder of immigrants from other South American countries, You want to close your borders to them. But yet you demand America hold our arms open wide to the invasion of drug runners and gang leaders. From what I have seen the Mexican people have No Honor, they accept No Shame in what they have allowed their country to become. I hope that America can close our Borders and stop the flow of the diseased feces that comes from Mexico. With time and enforcement of the laws of the United States I hope we will gain control of the illegal drug use in this country. It will never be stopped by legalizing or glorification. It will never be stopped by Ignoring the problems or where they come from. Mexico fix yourself if it is not too late. Americans will take care of America.

  11. @ Rogelio and 9:31 - Exactly correct. Thanks.

    @Tezacatli..whatever from Aztlan - you cling to that "we were here first" bullshit like grim death. See where it gets you. There is nothing sacred about your ancient cultures and you are not entitled to anything.

  13. I was wondering how long it would take, after a mention AGAINST the legalization of drugs, to Flush Ardent out from under the bridge where he lurks. After all legalizing drugs has helped Mexico so Much. I think you don't really give a crap about Mexico or anyone else you concentrate so much on the dope issue.

  15. enact capital punishment in mexico for cartel involvement. that would eliminate about 20 percent of the nations population, the so called elite. Wait that's the people who govern in mexico. nevermind mexico's narco/corruption problem will never be solved from within Mexico. Mexico's govt has their own people hostage, they have so for so long its not even funny. Mexico has the richest man in the world and by 2015 the number 10 largest economy in the world, yet its people are oppressed hardcore by its govt. Just look at their school libraries, you'll never find one. Its sad to see these jerks who orchestrate mass killings, in jail getting three nice meals a day. they should be treated the way they treat the innocent people who are deceased. mexican politicians dont have the guts to execute these cockroaches and they dont represent the people of mexico but only the rich and greedy. we need divine intervention. God help the people of Mexico.

  19. @2:24 & 6:05 You can't speak Spanish or English correctly. You can't even mix them up coherently.

    "but where everywhere so lambe pito" is that a sentence? In what language? Good communication skills are key to earning a good living - or you can work as a sicario for $5.00 a day, beatings included.

    "How does America's Drug use justify the violence in Mexico?? How do the drug addicts in America make the People of Mexico commit the atrocities on their OWN people."

    Yeah I guess money grows on trees right? And the demand from Americas drug addiction doesn't give these criminals any revenue to buy guns or more drugs right? Get the f**k outta here you don't know what you are talking about. Simple concept, demand and supply. LEARN IT!! You moron!

  22. Sometimes I wonder how so many BB posters get so damn lost inside their own inner space?

    'I was wondering how long it would take, after a mention AGAINST the legalization of drugs, to Flush Ardent out from under the bridge where he lurks. After all legalizing drugs has helped Mexico so Much. I think you don't really give a crap about Mexico or anyone else you concentrate so much on the dope issue.'

    What on earth is this guy talking about? Mexico has not legalized drugs. Plus, I was talking about the constant overt anti Mexican racism which motivates so many of the posters at BB, not any 'dope issue', whatever Mr. Anonymous here thinks that supposedly is?///////

  23. Hmmmm, Lets see...

    What crimes do the criminal cartels commit?

    1. Drug smuggling.
    2. Murder.
    3. Rape.
    4. Kidnapping.
    5. Extortion.
    6. Piracy Of Goods.
    7. Theft.
    8. Many, many others...

    So take away the "Drug Smuggling" and what is left? For those that make the claim "Its all the fault of the U.S. for consuming drugs" is ignorant and ludicrous and only and uneducated person would really think that...

    What is taking place in Mexico has NOTHING to do with drugs or drug consumption! It has to do with large groups of fat uneducated immoral pieces of human garbage not being able to face life on lifes terms and live like civilized human beings...

    Until Mexico faces up to their own realities and takes action to exterminate those individuals they will continue having all of the problems they are facing now.

    The criminal cartels are way, way worse than any outside terrorist, they are worse than the H1N1 and EBOLA virus combined and they need to be treated as such! The ONLY solution is to put every single one of them at least 6 feet into the ground preferably covered over with either cement or asphalt...

    I fear that Mexico has so many of these criminal types that the good innocent people are such a small minority that all hope is lost of Mexico ever becoming a civilized country... Sad but true and speaking the truth does not make me a racist...

  25. 'I fear that Mexico has so many of these criminal types that the good innocent people are such a small minority that all hope is lost of Mexico ever becoming a civilized country... Sad but true and speaking the truth does not make me a racist...'

    Turning the truth opposite of what it actually is is what makes you a racist though, as so does comparing certain Mexicans to EBOLA and AIDS. The good innocent people in Mexico are not a 'small minority' and anybody but a an ignorant Anglo racist would know that easily enough.

    'It has to do with large groups of fat uneducated immoral pieces of human garbage not being able to face life on lifes terms and live like civilized human beings...'

    Yes, you are a racist, Anonymous 8:25. Your own words give you away.

  27. Typical Mexican Druggie reply to any statement of responsibility toward the Mexican people. "It's the Americans fault", They made me do it....There are no jobs here in Mexico(just because I kidnapped the company owner and stole all his merchandise), he should have not closed and left the country. Our children are starving and uneducated (just because I killed their father and tortured their mother and killed the priest and burned the school, there is no one to take care of them) It Is America's Fault. Don't Shame Me I am a Proud and Honorable Mexican...jaja
