Mexican Army kills 8 gunmen in Tacámbaro, Michoacan.

Thursday, August 18, 2011 |




An intense firefight in the early morning hours of Tuesday between a patrol of Mexican Army soldiers and a convoy of heavily armed men in the municipality of Tacámbaro, Michoacan, resulted in the deaths of 8 gunmen.

Tacámbaro is located in the Tierra Caliente border region with Guerrero.

Official reports indicate that the soldiers were patrolling on the Tacámbaro-Tecario Road in the area of ​​the community of Las Blancas when they intercepted a convoy of 3 late model pickups with at least 20 gunmen on board.

The gunmen tried to flee the scene but after a brief pursuit one of the pickups was engaged in the shootout with the soldiers, while the other two vehicles were able to escape frome the scene.

After several minutes of heavy gunfire the 8 men travelling in a white Ford pickup were killed. Seven assault weapons and 2 sidearms were seized. One soldier was wounded in the confrontation.

For several hours there was a large scale operation in the area to locate the gunmen who escaped, which was unsuccessful.

Were those the knight temps that turn and left thier compadres to get massacred?
That shows how it is, and I like how the army is now doing more hunting and killing, treating them like they treat others, drag and pose them, throw them in the trash.

Amazing how the Mexican "authorities" massacre criminals and innocent civilians at will without an investigation or accountability yet they continue to defend their animals in the U.S. who commit crimes as vile as whats committed in Mexico even after a trial.

Dude that's brutal, lmao; the head of one of the guys in the bed is cleanly shot off, except for his chin, I suppose. pinches indios mamilas, .223 vs. .50?

It's amazing the very stupid choices people make..these eight jerk-offs sacrificed their lives for what? To protect some asshole, who could care less if they lived or died. What a waste..to die a criminal, with no honor, no name, no cause...just senseless..."The dead only know one thing..it is better to be alive" -Full Metal Jacket, Pvt. J.T. "Joker" Davis.

They should give rewards to people who turn these narcos in. It could be like a Gestapo state where if you are caught (or in this case killed), your whole extended family is investigated. I'm sure that will root out several other idiots within the same family who are causing these massacres.

These eight dead "compadres" are probably cursing the other two trucks that escaped. Thanks for letting me die on my own sukka lol

I was born in the Town of Tacambaro a beautiful place.I can't believe how the Drug cartels are takeing over Michoacan. I am very sad, and angry I dont understand how no one is able to take control of this situation." ITS NOT SAFE THERE ANY MORE" There is people missing everyday & The mexican govenment doesnt have any control.Drug cartels are takeing over Michoacan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

El_Regio said...

I agree, I actually believe the military should investigate the families and execute any they may suspect of having ties to cartels.

They got lit up but how did the sicarios managed to wound a Mexican soldier? It seems like the military caught them off guard there and to some extent it looked like an ambushed. There are 6 bodies in the truck and I guess two sicarios managed to get out of the truck, and shoot it out with the military and managed to injure one of the soldiers.

I agree with El Regio...line them up with numbers and all of the guns and ammo...what a crazy scene ! Like when you catch fish or shoot ducks. The dude with his head blown off in the truck.... .50 cal for certain.

At "J" don't you think sometimes the Mexican military act as government death squads now? There are countless stories of people being dissappeared by the military and a some of/ a lot of them involve innocents.

@10:02am
Please re-read the article. They chose their destiny by shooting at the military, they were protecting the boss. Shit happens.

pueblo said...

@ 10:19 so you want to replace one terror for another? how long before your amazing gestapo start executing people for political or social reasons? that's going backwards not forward. secret police organizations are for illegitimate governments that do not have the support of the people, so they artificially stay in power by killing or arresting any opposition.

what a nice view!
on the second picture the guy looks like he want to protect his face from the sun.
i cant understand why still 2 van´s could escape. is there no helisupport?

Bones said...

In pictures I see a lot of mexican troops with Mark 19 grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, but do they ever use them?? Every death seems to be from small arms fire. When those other 2 vehicles were trying to escape woulda been the perfect time to let rip with some 40mm rounds....

El_Regio said...

@ Pueblo 2:13 Where have you been? People have been executed in Mexico for political reasons for a very long time.

El_Regio said...

lol yeah the second picture, he actually looks like he is playing like if he was driving! lol

vvvvrroooom vvvvvrooooom!!! hahaha

Anon defending citizens in other countries is a policy not only Mexico has, U.S does too. If you want to see pictures of how U.S killed criminals and innocent people including kids in Iraq let me know, I will post a link for you see how humane U.S soldiers were, in this pictures you will see American soldiers posing by the death people like trophies the death were on civilian clothes and no weapons can be seen by the death Iraqis.

lol Cartel gunmen are such pussys, they drive around with their luxury SUV's showing off their guns and toughguy expressions to innocent folks then when the military comes along or anyone who don't take no shit comes along they get their asses whooped! LMAOOOO!!

Good work military. Fuck arresting these cowards just blast them like you did!

@ At "J" don't you think sometimes the Mexican military act as government death squads now? There are countless stories of people being disappeared by the military and a some of a lot of them involve innocents.

On the same token there are countless stories of criminals posing as soldiers and or law enforcement for the purpose of kidnapping or killing people.
Many narco camps have been busted with military and police uniforms.

J said...

I don't understand the cheering on of this,or the celebration of more dead bodies being displayed in a brutal fashion, it's not funny, it's not cause to laugh, just more grim death in awful situation. I guess it's a reflection of the times. Reminds me of 'Straw Dogs', or 'Last House On the Left', or something. Where is the real evil?

As far as death squads,I guess, I just assume that branches of all the law enforcement act in that capacity, sometimes. Federal Police, Army, Marines, PEP, AFI, etc. I don't think they execute extortionists, kidnappers, and hang them up with narco mensajes, or drop dismembered corpses in the street.

Anonymous said...

Look at how they numbered the streets and counted what each dead dude had on him. What chaps me is that I drive a beat up old truck and these "sicarios" waste a perfectly good Ford F-150.

@ J 3:29 PM

No it is funny. As long as worthless narco's are being blown away then I am laffing. Why? because the more of these assholes live the more innocent get hurt or die so why let them live to hurt and kill innocent people? the military probably saved a future child or decent citizen with morals getting killed over nothing by wasting these scumbags.

So that's why seeing these pieces of shit like this is funny.

Anonymous said...

They fear innocent people. It ist payback time!!!

J said...

Whether that statement is true or not, (regarding saving children) it's not funny or cute, or a joke. That's what I don't get, it's just hateful, and callous. I am not saying cry for the narcos that are dead, but they have families too, and children. It's all sad, none of it is good or humorous. It's a cycle of bloodshed, it doesn't make it 'ok' today because those killed were narcos. If you take comfort in that, fine, but I do not.

J we laugh cause we seen countless people get the bat or the beheading maybe you should check out more video's of what these fags are doing to Mexico

this assholes are riding in luxury-vans and point the stinking-finger to Mexican people - now they can stick it in their own ass!

Bring em on!

If you were a solider, how would you react to sicarios shooting and trying to kill you? Would you hit them with pillows while wearing a a tie dyed peace shirt? Don't forget that these soldiers are human also and also have kids at home that they have to go back to.

Viva el ejercito mexicano.

Well J they knew the risks when they joined the scum infested Cartels so if you live by the sword you can expect to die by it and that is exactly what happened here.

ajulio said...

@ J

Don't forget to remind me to give you the world's tiniest violin for christmas. I respect pollyanas because they are good people but BB does'nt need this kinda guilt-ridden babble, especially when it's thrown at everyone else.

The way that these cartels win battles is by outnumbering, outgunning and surprising their enemies. It feels good to see them on the other end where they are the victims. Where they are the ones who are being outnumbered, outgunned and chased to death. I hope the last minutes of their lives were filled with complete terror and pain.

Those pictures of them laying on the road like a bunch of stiffy's are great images.

Kill More Sicarios Please.

They're basically riding around like ducks in a barrel. 8 fucks are easily splashed when grouped so close together. Imagine how difficult it must be to shoot back at the military when so many of them are riding in the back trying not to get in each other's way. Se han de ver cagado cuando vieron los soldados.

This is one cartel setting up another by baiting them with bad information, then notifying the military where the other will be coming. The Zetas do this well because they are connected to the military.

J said...

I'll politely disagree that it feels good to see dead bodies strewn on the side of the road as a result of a bloody and damaging war.

lol at 'pollyanna' like you are either for bloodthirsty violence or a hippie or something. But, I think I am done with this, continue with the cheering.

Anonymous said...

Good point @ 6:36 PM

The reasons these punks get offed so quickly is because of the fact they are all bunched together inside or on the back of an SUV, they are just cannon fodder that close to each other. I bet if they got out their cars and took cover somewhere and spread out they may have killed a couple soldiers and not got their asses kicked 8 - 0 LMAOOO!! this is the good thing about coked up narco's is they are so stupid that most of the time they get shot to shit when taking on the military.

Anonymous said...

They look not organized and not well trained. Their tactic is even worse. I agree with 9.52 Just get out your car get cover spread out and shoot them and you might survive.(If you know how to shoot)

Don't you think you couldn't qualify for being one in those "better trucks"? I think almost anyone qualifies.

It's good to be good even if you roll with worse truck. :)

You know what fuck these. All humans in every country display their dead as trophies of what rewards you be reap by being unjust to your fellow man. The u.s. Has redefined the very art of war its just people dont understand. When you defeat an enemy an exaple has to be made of them so that people dont get wild ideas of continuing, even if it means killing 50000 people. I am mexican american and I will tell you, mexico is currently a victim of human reality, this isnt the first time its happened in human history and it wont be the last. For now unfortanetley people will continue to die, for better or worse. Hopefully, for the sake of mexico for better.
