Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Police Chief Murdered in Coahuila

The police chief of Saltillo, the capital of the northern Mexican state of Coahuila, and his 11-year-old son were killed by gunmen while driving, prosecutors said Monday.

Emmanuel Almaguer Perez was killed Monday morning in the state capital's eastern Magisterio neighborhood, the Coahuila state Attorney General's Office said.

Almaguer Perez and his son were driving in their SUV when the gunmen opened fire on them, the AG's office said.

The bodies of the police chief and his son were found inside the vehicle at the intersection of Seccion 38 boulevard and Arturo Ruiz street.

Almaguer Perez and his son were shot with assault rifles, the AG's office said.

"Investigators from the Attorney General's Office worked on Monday morning to remove the bodies, as well as to conduct the necessary field work corresponding to the investigation," the AG's office said.

The shooting occurred hours after three people were gunned down at a bar in Torreon, another city in Coahuila.

The Gulf cartel and Los Zetas are the main drug trafficking organizations operating in Coahuila.

Los Zetas, considered Mexico's most violent drug cartel, mainly operates in Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila and San Luis Potosi states.

After several years on the payroll of the Gulf cartel, Los Zetas went into the drug business on their own account and now control several lucrative territories.

The two cartels have been fighting for control of smuggling routes from northern Mexico into the United States.

Extremely sad. Had read somewhere that in order to protect themselves people were travelling with kids but apparently the sicarios dont care whether your with kids or not.

Oh I don't think he is useless, after all this God you talk about has moved you to become an instrument of his wrath.
"And he found a new jawbone of an ass, and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith." "Then Samson said, "With a donkey's jawbone I have made donkeys of them. With a donkey's jawbone I have killed a thousand men."
you and i and many more patriots will be slaughtering these vermin.

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

This is a Great test for Mexican Law, will they find the killers,the boss who gave the order? Mexico despiratley needs the death penalty! Drug gangs routinley,daily torture and kill people . Lets all see how well the Mexicans do! This case is a lay down Capital Murder in any conservative jurisdiction in the world,what will happen in Mexico,one of the most Crime Tollerant countrys in the world? Cleaning up Mexico will be impossible unless some Mexicans are willing to do without their extra drug Money.

The chief was working for the Zetas and he paid dearly...The CDG lit his ass up. The kid was collateral damage.

I hope they kill everyone connected to a Zeta. Kill their friends, kill their families, kill their fucking dogs, kill everyone who even says a word to a Zeta. This is total war and the only way to win is to make clear that if you align with the Zetas you are signing execution papers for everyone you come into contact with. I'm sorry the boy had to die but his father is the one who killed him.

Kill all dirty rat bastards, clean up Coahuila before the americans get sent in. If Coahuila fails to show stability you can guarantee special interest will comein to sweep out the Zetas from their stronghold. Which is at the moment getting raped by the Gulf. Keep this fighting bullshit out of the civilized parts of mexico and keep it on the outskirts where your bodies belong. Don't be surprised to start seeing the Red Society start slowly protecting the higher living cities. A dead dirty mexican is a quiet one. And thatll make me happy.
