One armed suspect was killed and another was found dead in a joint Mexican security forces operation in southeastern Veracruz state Thursday, according to news releases posted on the Mexican Army and Mexican Navy websites.

Elements from the Mexican 26th Military Zone, an unidentified Naval Infantry unit and Veracruz state police agents had been dispatched to a location near Poblacion de Pacho Viejo along the Xalapa-Coetepec highway where an anonymous compliant said armed men were.  One air force, two navy and one Veracruz state police helicopters supported the operation as well.

Security forces came under small arms fire from an undetermined number of armed suspects.  Return fire killed one  unidentified Los Zetas operative.  At the location security forces also found one dead body in a vehicle, and another individual who had been severely beaten, but who was still alive.  The survivor was evacuated from the location for medical attention.

Security forces also found two stolen vehicles, two AR-15 rifles, one 14 gauge shotgun and weapons magazines and ammunition.

They should kill all the low life cokeheads, crackheads, methheads, heroine junkies, human excrement addicts (It's called "jenkem", yes, when americans can't get "good" drugs they turn to human waste) that are all over the USA. But then again, if they killed all the cokeheads that would be a high percentage of the lawyer population in the USA.

I didn't believe it either, until I looked it up. They're rare but they do exist.

My entire post is factual. Since you appear to be a neanderthal I will kindly provide you with a little more info. The first part of my post doesn't need explanation. As for jenkem, which originates from the African continent, well, yeah it's been in the states for years now and is not an urban legend. Regarding the lawyer population, the deceased american drug dealer, Bogart Bello, always said his best customers where lawyers.

If you need help with research let me know.
