Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Turf War in Guanajuato Leaves 8 Dead

Sunday, February 19, 2012 |

Eight homicides earlier this week in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato stem from a turf battle between rival drug cartels, officials said, noting that one of the gangs claimed responsibility for the slayings by leaving threatening messages next to five of the bodies.

All of the victims were killed with firearms under very similar circumstances, state Attorney General Carlos Zamarripa Aguirre said.

The most recent slaying occurred Thursday in the city of Acambaro, where a message was discovered that is “practically identical to the others that were found,” Zamarripa said.

According to the state Attorney General’s Office, three people were killed in the municipality of Apaseo el Alto and one each in the cities of Celaya, Cortazar, Villagran, Acambaro and Salvatierra.

Investigators found signs apparently signed by the Los Caballeros Templarios drug cartel at the crime scenes in Apaseo el Alto, Celaya and Villagran, officials said.

The murders come approximately a month before Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to visit Guanajuato and a week after the discovery of 18 “drug messages” signed by Los Caballeros Templarios that ordered a rival gang to leave the state and avoid “generating violence” during the pontiff’s stay.

Los Caballeros Templarios warned the Nueva Generacion cartel that “confrontations will be inevitable” and told its rivals to leave Guanajuato in peace.

Neither gang, however, is based in that state, which has largely been spared the drug-related violence that has ravaged other parts of Mexico.

The pope is scheduled to stay at the Colegio Miraflores in the Guanajuato city of Leon during his visit to Mexico.

Benedict XVI will celebrate an open-air Mass in the morning on March 25 at the city of Silao’s Guanajuato Bicentenario Park, an outdoor venue that it is expected will accommodate about 750,000 people, who will need a ticket to enter, officials said.

The pontiff is scheduled to visit three cities in Guanajuato state during his time in Mexico and will continue on to Santiago, Cuba.

The day most drugs are decriminalized, is the day the drug cartels will see most of their livelihood dry up. Yes, I know people will be doing a lot of drugs. News flash. They already are. You cannot arrest your way out of a soical problem that is so profitable, particularly for criminals , governemnt officials and fininacial institutions. We have had a "war on drugs" in the U.S. since the 70's. We have spent billions of law enforcement dollars for what?

LCT vs CJNG?

Anonymous said...

Ohhh.... so it's not Calderon's policies and tactics that has lead to all this murder all within his time as pres, it's the fault of the US.

Anonymous said...

Let's not forget that LCT's are basically the same people as La familia. They just changed the name and broke away to avoid the heat from CDS when they didn't respect agreements made that Jalisco and Colima were off limits to them. When Nacho Coronel was killed LFM was convinced that Sinaloa would take their side and they would finally take the covetted Guadalajara plaza, a virtual gold mine of drug sales and unlimited extortion possibilities. This never happend and as a result CDJNG was formed by Coronel's people and the Valencia's, milenio, and LFM were kicked out the state and Sinaloa continued to support CDJNG as "Mencho" was 2nd in command when Coronel was still alive. Guzman and Zambada simply choose to to continue to support Mencho in the war against LFM and Z's because it's good for business in Jalisco. This state is cooking more meth than ever and Colima is a crucial staging area for cocaine and psudufedrin shipments. The locals are happy that they are not paying extortion fees like people in michoacan and Guanajuato. For you guys thinking that la familia and sinaloa are allies, stop listening corridos and step out into the real world. Los caballeros are following the same path as the LFM and that will be their ultimate demise.

Anonymous said...

The michoacanos don't back down from nobody. I doubt chapo will start some beef with LCT because they know they are their strongest ally.... Remember that LFM was the leading producer in meth after nacho death even if they didn't have jalisco.... Remember this... LCT hates ZETAS... That is the last person they will ask for help.... CDG is allies with LCT
SALUDOS

@5:52pm and @5:46pm
Cartel de sinaloa has 0 need for LCT to keep zetas, resistencia, familia ect from their plazas. They have a no aggression pact but thats it. Please remember that La familia was originally formed by Los zetas to take plazas from Sinaloa in michoacan and Jalisco. LCT are the same people and la mentada tuta is still the same person who worked under the zeta wing some years ago. They don't want jalisco to cook meth, they want it for extortion purposes.

Remember everyone that when the Michoacanos battled the Zetas they were fighting the ORIGINAL Zetas not the fake halcones with 3 days training that cdjng are fighting
CDG and LFM fought the real ones and did damage

If CDG is in there its due to the fact that they helping CT keep those zetas out

lets see, CDG needs CT to fight off the Zetas in Tamaulipas, the Michoacanos were the ones in the trenches in Tamaulipas everyone knows that... CDS throws a wrench in Michoacan sending the Nueva Generacion at them. CT has to defend themselves and stop sending support to Tamaulipas, where CDG is divided in two factions now. One faction is close to the CDS nd Nueva Generacion which was R1, the M's to CT.. Looks like el Mayo knows what hes doing. Looks like shits about to hit the fan in Tamaulipas too, cant play chess when you only know how to play checkers
