Zetas threaten Ciudad Valles mayor

Thursday, July 7, 2011 |

A handwritten message threatening the mayor of Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosi, caused the mobilization of local, state, and military elements Monday morning.

The discovery of a white cooler with an iced pig head and a message addressed to the mayor, Socorro Herrera Orta, was made around 10:30 am during the city council's weekly flag ceremony.

The message, written on fluorescent poster board, read:

"This is the last message for you to communicate with us Coco, the next time it'll be your family's heads. This goes for all the Golfo supporters....Signed: Unidad Zeta"

Ciudad Valles police have been the target of three attacks in less than a year.

Are you a Zeta sympathizer Regio?

I don't think Regio was sympathizing with anyone. He was stating the truth. You side with any cartel, you're dead. Simple as that.

What you seem to overlook, is when you don't you are too. It's not black & white. This isn't a western.

@anon 5:26,

Well, the only time I've seen anyone referred as Golfas is when the enemy speaks of them.

At this point, control of local politicians has to be an ego thing for the crooks. Local politicians have very little power or influence or credibility for that matter. Everyone thinks they're corrupt whether they are or not. So why bother to buy one or threaten one who won't be bought? So you (Z, CDG, CDS) have the mayor of Podunk, NL in your pocket, so what?

I don't get what they are after - bragging rights with the other crooks?

I feel the same way, what can local politicians do? Local police are bought and paid for, or killed, or whatever, Federal Police aren't under the major's jurisdiction, are they? Military either. There must be something do it, but I don't know what it is.
