Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Gunfight Between Zetas And Mexican Federal Forces (Archives)

Note: From the archives. This is an old post and video that was in draft mode and never posted. This incident happened on November 3, 2009 in Gomez Palacio, Durango, Mexico.

Gunfight Between Zetas And Mexican Federal Forces Leaves Two Dead Men And Six Wounded (Aftermath, Graphic, low Quality Video)

A shootout between federal forces and a group of hit men from Los Zetas cartel, left two dead gunmen and at least 6 wounded, it all started when federal police officers spotted two suspicious late model trucks, and when they tried to pull them over to search for weapons and drugs, the men began shooting at the officers, forcing the feds to shoot back, and leaving two dead and two wounded on the scene.

This started a pursuit on the second vehicle, where the sicarios also started shooting at the officers, the four men inside the second vehicle were wounded. The federal officers found inside the vehicles four bullet proof vests, four assault rifles and three hand guns.

What you are watching in the video is one of the wounded sicarios asking a federal police officer to please turn him over his back because he is drowning in his own blood, and at the same time the officer asks him who he is working for, is it El Chapo Guzman or The Zetas? The officers tells the sicario if he tells him the truth he will help him.

Half way through the video the feds are making fun of one of the dead men who has a big bullet wound on his head, one of the officers asks the other to look inside the man's head for any thoughts, on which the officer answers that his thoughts flew away because of the gunshot wound to his head. On the the final part of the video the other wounded gunman is still asking the officer to turn him over on his back because he is drowning, and the officer asks him why he should he help him, he is not even from his family, and he tells him that he is gonna die any ways.

It was just another day in Mexico.

La verdad esta cabron, uno no puede sentir simpatia por gente como esta especialmente cuando ellos te tiraron a matar.
It is a bad episode but it is hard for a person to feel sorry for some one who tried to kill you.

so first the hitmen shoot at the police to kill, and then ask em for mercy because he is drowning in his blood. thats a tough one.

They don't deserve sympathy, not even a bullet to take them out of their misery, the agony of every last second as they lay dying in a pool of their own blood, mocked and laughed at, as they try to clinch onto every dying breath is at least what they deserve. They kill innocent people without remorse, why should anyone treat them any different. Let's wipe the world of scum like these, wish the cops and government were more brutal on them. Hasta la V***a cabrones!

Gomez palacio know belongs to el chapo. Torreon the city next to it is owned by los zetas and rumor is there loosing it.

I agree with all the comments so far. It's hard to blame the officers for not showing sympathy. Put yourself in their shoes. A group of gunmen just tried to KILL you and your team mates, are you going to show them mercy? I know I wouldn't.

Even though there sicarios they could of been the good kind who don't mess with innocent people and yes there is good kind who just do their job and kill the contras. and these federals were probably there contras on how unprofessional they are in this video, that's why they didn't wanna get pulled over and fought them, when i went to Mexico i would see the sicarios ride with the law so you never know dont get it twisted there's always 2 sides to the story for all you zetas haters.

Many Americans seem to be simply losing it morally, emotionally, and intellectually. POWs have rights and if you want to make war games all the time, Pentagon lovers, then respect the rights of POWs when you hold them in custody.

I remember not too long back when all the US Right Winger types were crying their copious croc tears about how North Vietnam was supposedly mistreating US military POWs they held. Of course, the US military thugs housed their held Vietnamese POWs in nice little hotel rooms they called tiger cages, where they tortured Vietnamese nonstop. And yet, still to this day, all many of you want to do is to continue to torture, murder, and insult POWs (drug war though they may be) held by the US military and its, in this case, Mexican military allies.

You guys seem totally clueless! Use your heads some for a change! It is not good when a military behaves worse even than many criminal gangs do. What goes around can come around back to bite us all on our corporatized, collectivized asses. It has happened this way many many times before and will happen in the future, too.

@ ardent

Stop crying like a lil' girl. The mexican drug war is a different beast. That zeta who's drowning in his own blood begging for water put himself in that situation. Just minutes before, he was a hateful killing machine. Then after getting shot, he becomes a human being and a beggar. Sicarios have a choice to join a cartel or not knowing what the consequences are. In mexico, it's Do or Die. A good zeta is a dead zeta. You have to be ruthless with the cartels or you will never win. But i am against torturing a person even if it is a dirty rat zeta.

Ardent I do respect your point of view, but unfortunately the way these people treats other have created to much hate against them, and another thing the take no POWs. When they do extortion if you don't pay they kill you, they don't care if are innocent or not, they don't care if you have money or not if you don't pay you will be killed. The country is experiencing a bad economy problem and these people are making it worse.

Ardent, pure white knight and favorite dining room table,
you talk and you know nothing, kid. Have you any idea on what happened during the former Yugoslavia wars on BOTH sides, what happened in the Iran /Iraq conflict when west AND east experimented new nerve gasses, in east Africa etc. The protect-the-POW thing started with post WWI Geneva's dreamers and died in the WWII Siberian POW camps. Where an uncle of mine ended his days.
It's so easy to preach from the top of your clean mountain, far away from the vulgum pecus. How do we little uneducated people look from your throne? BLAH BLAH BLAH.

ajulio said...

@ matanzas

always giving funny and intelligent comments.

good ol' Ernie boy...umm Ardent. always defending the lil' guy and the victim even if the victim is a heartless killer. ardent thinks that the military should be more nicer to the sicarios. that the sicarios are human beings too. spare me the compassion ardent. and once again, another senseless comparison to the U.S.

but ardent's got a point. maybe if the mexican federal forces were nicer to the sicarios, mexico would be a more safer and better place. for every smart comment you make, you have to come back with a dumb one.

I remember this story haha! So you guys have nothing better to write about but a story that was from November 3, 2009???????? Come on guys. I know you can do better than that! Mis dos centavos!

I'm seeing a lot of people saying how Los Zetas are terrible and the cops were right to act how they did. I'm not saying it was good or not, but these men are Federal Police officers, and in the United States, the police would still have to make an attempt to save the lives of the sicarios. Unfortunatly, Mexico is not the US, and many police departments in Mexico are police in name only. Police in Mexico are so corrupt that you can't be sure whether these guys are just sicarios in uniform.

You can't fight the cartels when fifty percent or more of law enforcement is on the payroll of one cartel or another. Many of the federales work for El Chapo and carry out his bidding. How can the Mexican govt. take out the cartels when the cartels control every level of police in violence-ridden states like Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon?

In fact, police make the best sicarios. They are already armed, and trained in tactics that can be easily adapted to do the dirty work of El Chapo, Lazcano, or whoever. When you see people paraded in front of cameras by the Policia Federal and they look scared shitless, why do you think that is? It's because as soon as the cameras are gone, they could very well be turned over to an execution squad for a rival cartel or executed by the Federales themselves. This is a dirty game and you can't assume the police are good guys all the time. Sad but true, and corruption at every level of Mexican government makes the war on the cartels unwinnable.

Haha! there all macho men with a lynch mob mentality when they are torturing someone to death on video but they not laffing or being toughguy when its their the ones about to snuff it!

What goes around comes around. This guy had probably been responsible for kills and all types of nasty shit so it was just a matter of time.

Its obvious you don't know what you are talking about. Believe me if that shit actually happen where they were killing them afterwards I still would be happy. But it doesn't. Keep your idiotic ideas to yourself. Name one case where after the cameras were gone some big drug trafficker was executed. Please enlighten us!

Anon I respect your opinion but honestly I don't give a F if the police are sicarios in uniform as long as they kill criminals. I will continued to hope that one day Marisela Morales will reduce corruption to a minimum because just like Martin Luther King Jr I have a dream that Mexico one day will be like it was before.

"POWs have rights"

As a socialist I absolutely agree. Sicarios should be treated with the same respect as those models of socialism Pol Pot, Mao, and Stalin treated their dissidents, deviants, and dissenters. These sicarios are in rebellion against the Mexican Revolution: they are reactionary scum, engaging in their capitalist drug trade.

If sicarios are prisoners of war, then the drug cartels are at war with the state. They therefore are not criminals. Therefore they may be shot without evidence, mercy or trial.

Sheeiit??!!
This sounds like it was extracted from "blood maridian" or"no country for old man" by Cormac McArthy.

Today I was reading something and I come across this. The Pima County Sheriff's Department SWAT team gunned down a former Marine in his Tucson home.
SWAT team members coming through his front door fired at least 70 rounds at Jose Guerena, 26, striking him at least 21 times. Jose Guerena, 26 never fired a shot. The SWAT team prevented emergency medical teams from treating him for more than an hour. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter at a local hospital.

The same thing happened in the North Hollywood shoot out the SWAT team prevented emergency medical teams from treating the suspect and he bled to death.

Jose Guerena was not a criminal he was a U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran. On August 12 2011, it was announced that the family of Jose Guerena has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the Pima County, Sheriff Dupnik, and all the officers who shot Guerena.
You can read about him at this link.

Anonymous 10:31P.M. Durango is not a chapo stronghold he does control a majority but there are pockets of resistance, The Zetas being there is incorrect somewhat, PPL from their call anybody thats against chapo zetas, unbeknownst to them they are actually original cartel de juarez members that refuse to give up their territory. Chapo might control some parts but not all....DURANGO1
