Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Sicarios Continue to Kill Police In Acapulco

Thursday, August 18, 2011 |

On Tuesday a group of gunmen carried out several executions of Auxiliary State Police officers. The executions were reported in the port of Acapulco, Guerrero.

The first incident occurred in the neighborhood of La Fábrica, police officer Antonio Vargas Serrano was guarding a beer delivery truck when he was caught by surprised by an armed group who executed him after stealing his handgun, a Beretta.

Later in the day there was another violent incident in streets Avenida Constituyentes and Avenida México, located in the Bella Vista neighborhood. Unknown hitmen executed three people that were identified as Teodoro Altamirano Cantú and Alejandro Hernández Bustamante, who worked as taxi drivers. Also executed was policeman Jose Mercedes Adame de la Cruz, who also had his weapon stolen after the execution.

Hours later there was another armed attack on the busy Avenida Cuauhtémoc, as gunmen fired on three officers of the Preventive Auxiliary Police. One of the officers died at the scene and was identified as Severiano Morales Rodríguez, while his two companions were abducted by the sicarios, and one other managed to escape from the sicarios while seriously injured.

That looks like random killing to me, maybe to heat up the plaza but who knows.

I don't understand any of this, but there's no way they can be pissed off at the police....The police stand there while gunmen do what they do or they run for cover so it's not as if the police are doing anything to disrupt cartel guys.

Sorry for sounding ignorant, but what do you mean by heat up the plaza? The notes usually say this is what happens when you support kidnappers etc etc, but that's all bs...the guys doing the killing are the same kidnappers they are supposedly killing.

The only reason I said that is because I don't know, it doesn't make any sense to me going around killing cops just because. No messages were left behind and the also stoled the police weapons.

Who really knows, what was behind the murder of this police officer, it could have been something as simple, as they wanted his gun or maybe he was eliminated because he refused to cooperate with a particular gang or DTO. As far as "heating up the plaza," the phrase refers to rival DTO's committing acts of violence (murder) against each other, in an effort to gain control or disrupt control from another DTO. I for one don't think this murder has anything to do with an attempt to "heat up the plaza," things in Aca have been on fire with violence for quite extra heat is necessary.

here's another consideration...gang initiation...execute a cop? why not...Also it shows who's boss in town in case the police have any ideas to thwart crime which they are not capable of obviously. I highly doubt these police did anything to deserve being shot.....guarding a freaking beer truck..give me a break.

It's just another day he got killed just cause he was a cop and he probably was a good Target to piss the rival cartel off
