Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Eight Slain in Violent Ciudad Juarez

Wednesday, January 11, 2012 |

A police commander was among eight people slain in this Mexican border metropolis in the last 24 hours, authorities said Tuesday.

Gunmen traveling in at least two vehicles mounted an attack early Tuesday on a group of municipal cops, killing Pablo Soria and wounding five of his subordinates, Ciudad Juarez police department spokesman Adrian Sanchez said.

Five civilians were also hurt in the incident.

Four people abducted Monday night outside a home in Juarez were found dead hours later in another part of the city, sources in the Chihuahua state Attorney General’s Office said.

The victims, described only as three men and woman ranging in age from 19 to 50, were discovered in the yard of an abandoned house, the sources said.

A 35-year-old woman who appeared to have been sexually assaulted was found dead at an intersection in this city just across the border from El Paso, Texas, while two men were gunned down earlier Monday, the state AG’s office said.

Juarez, Mexico’s murder capital, suffered 1,974 homicides last year, down from 3,115 murders in 2010, according to statistics from the Chihuahua AG’s office.

The city has been the scene in the past few years of a brutal territorial struggle between the Sinaloa and Juarez drug cartels, part of a larger conflict involving criminals and security forces that has claimed 50,000 lives since December 2006.

its would be no coincidence that more police commanders and even leysaola himself gets an attempt to kill him for his determination of destroying the juarez cartel soldiers.. now his police force will be more afraid and even the cleanup of guards has also commenced for all those left protecting the sinaloas cartel.. leysaola thought this would be easy after he got the tijuana cartel under control for el chapos people to take over but these guys are much more powerful even after taking on federales, police, military, corrupt DEA, and even sinaloa themselves.. now cartel de juarez keeps getting more and more of chihuahua cleaning out everything with chapo thinning out to fight all over mexico.. chapos ambition to control all mexico backstabbing everyone has turned almost all cartels on him loosing more and more territory to beltrans and zetas, fighting on their own territory, slowly getting kicked out of chihuahua.. he is the reason for this war that has left thousands of inocents dead, he is no good guy like those ignorant people here say he is.. he is a piece of shit no more than that like all other killers and cartels

he already runs Juarez you Idiots(10:16am & 9:52am) keep telling yourselves that he isn't or that he's losing. it must make you guys who make up stories feel better thinking el Chapo and his crew will just go away. As far as back stabbing, snitching, dealing with the law only shows what power really is. Stop hating on a true Kingpin. CDS rifa por todo mundo.

You know why El Chapo can't exterminate the Z's?
Because there are thousands of these cockaroaches in Mexico. Chapo wants to clean his plazas and exterminate Z's like bugs. But when these bugs are infested it has proven to be quiet the task. The Z's will be around for a while, maybe years. Mientras que aiga ignorancia y gente corriente Mexico will have Z's.

@11:50 what are you mumbbling about you tard? Get your head out of your ass freak! Your zeta scum ain't gonna last, it's only a matter of time, nobody likes them, only ignorant dumb shits like you. Chapo has been in the game for decades and has people all over Mexico even the US, some people cry that he kills people, but all the people that die at his hands are criminals in one way or another. You say truth is spoken with actions and your right the zetas are trash, just look at all the stupid shit they do, these fucks are the same as the somali pirates bunch of fucking outcast of society!!

Honestly If I wasn't for the damn zetas Mexico would be amazing . The damn zetas are the only the are causing all the bullshit in Mexico ... Once CDS cleans all the zetas out from Mexico then Mexico will be a safe place again ... Zetas will be here for a long time but they all will be eliminated one dAy and chapo will still be on top !

Este probe ni save. Bro with that idiotic comment please do not post on this site anymore. Obviously u aint no where near juarez or chihuahua for that matter. Chapo pays people to keep his plazas in order. Juarez was being contested by gente nueva but now with el flaco locked up hes gotta pay someone else to step up. Meanwhile vicente carillo decided to bring in some of the fam from sinaloa to run juarez. No more disloyals that go flippin sides when shit pops off.
