Bad guys attack cop shop in Jalisco state

By Chris Covert

As many as 40 armed suspects attacked the facade of the police station and city hall in San Cristobal de la Barranca municipality in extreme northern Jalisco state Sunday morning, according to Mexican news reports.



A report on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily said that the suspects arrived aboard ten pickup trucks at about 0600 hrs, dismounted and then proceeded to fire on the police station.  The firing last five minutes.

The suspects then left board their vehicles in the direction of the nearby village of La Lobera.  The attack left no one hurt.  About 500 spent shell casing from AR-15 and AK-47 rifles were found at the scene.

San Cristobal de la Barranca is on the mountain highway Mexico Federal Highway 23 which connects Guadalajara, the capital of Jalisco state in the south with Teul de Gonzalez Ortega in Zacatecas state in the north.

The area since at least 2011 has been a scene of an intense and deadly competition between Los Zetas, and La Valencia Drug Cartel and Carteles Unidos, both of which are aligned with the Sinaloa Cartel.

That competition has led to large scale armed encounters between the groups, the bloodiest of which was an unconfirmed gunfight in San Cristobal de la Barranca municipality, which led to as many as 20 dead a year ago.

    5. Chicago is as violent as most of these mexican cities and perhaps even more violent. Society loves violence, brutality, bloodshed, etc., never judge what u about. Mexico is safe as long as ur not involved in da biz. Tourist r welcomed wit open arms as long as their is RESPECT.

  7. "40 armed men, 10 vehicle convoy, 500+ rounds expended"... That is the very definition of a failed state.
    It's obvious that the Mexican government has lost control due to top to bottom coruption.
    Disband the Police and place the military under foreign/international control.
    Declare matial law and allow the military (led by an international coalition)to establish control.
    Then start rooting out coruption and establish a new government.
    The world is already in a precarious financial state, the last thing we need is Mexico imploding and de-stabilizing the US.
    A collapsed Mexico could set off a depression and/or global war.

  8. International law? Are u stupid or just plain stupid,. If mexicans have killed so many mexicans, what do think NATO would do? Just more dead people, NATO/ ISAF cant fix mexico. How do i no? Because they tried with iraq and afghanistan and those places are even worse now. So yes the usa can kill alot of people but not fix the country, so international help wouldnt fix shit,

  9. Los valencia aka Milenio are allied with zetas, la famaila, and la resistencia. They are currently fighting an unsuccessful war against CDJNG/cartel de sinaloa. Carteles unidos is a thing of the past and no longer exists.

  10. The cartels are the same politicians. All the laws passed are to protect themselves and made to destroy the innocent.
    Mexico needs outside help, politicians are protecting the capos. United Nations should be charge, it's all messed up now. The political party PRI are the same Zetas. Everyone knows it, but cannot do nothing, the innocent have no weapons to defend their love ones, and the sicarios and drug lords have more weapons than any police group.
    Mexico is in deep shit, way to late to make it better, it just cannot get any worse than it already is.

    Yeah, right. You know, you're lucky if you hear anything about this events in Europe.

  13. You dont want UN involved, the USA won't send in any troops..they may do some classified special ops, but that won't be enough. The people will begin to rebel against the cartels/gov't. Only a revolution will fix this, not any outside help.

    1. I agree. I live in Canada and realise that Mexico has many honourable people and not many options to afford education for a better life.

      Even my anglo saxon blonde + blue eyed race living in 'Civilised' societies would resort to desparate means to feed their family
      When faced with hopelessnes. Humans everywhere are a nasty race. I don't blame those Mexicans fro trying to escape to the US and Canada even for lousy paying jobs cuz I'd do the same if my family were living with daily kidnappings etc.

      Men have caused the Wars and it's their greed for power + wealth that causes this Hell. Maybe we should eradicate Males lol

  17. The cartels are so bloodthirsty that they are committing self degrading acts and may not realize it. Attacking an adobe structure ' en force' or dumping large numbers of innocents does not achieve any meaningful goal. If I put my fist through a wall, would you be afraid of me? Not necessarily . The wall doesn't hit back. These losers are misguided. The attack could happen in any rural place with little resistance. The government response is what is more telling.

    1. When I was growing up narcos where idiolized. These are the same men that have, in my opinion been provoked by the government. Mexico has long lived by corruption, calderon desicion to change the culture in mexico has proven to be a failure. k vivan los narcos

  18. One of the biggest problems in Mexico is the lack of any type of education which has made a large part of the population very ignorant and shallow and narrow minded, thus they are unable to see all of the good things Calderon has done and they are unable to to see that to stop attacking the cartels now will spell complete doom for Mexico. That is exactly what the cartels are hoping for and they are playing the ignorant of Mexico like an old fiddle... It is very frustrating to watch...

    1. Lack of education? Are you sure Einstein??

      Delete
    2. Yes LACK of Education.. If you live in Mexico you should know that a very low % of the students get better than a high school education.. I know because I get to work with many people that are from Mexico and cant even spell their name.. I dont say it in a bad way because most of this people are hard working people who only want to better their situation. We can love our country as much as we want but even if it is sad to say it Mexico is, was and unfortunetly will be corrupt for yrs to come. Especially with Peña-Nieto as the President. My own personal opinion is give the lady a chance I think that she can do a good job. Mexico needs a Female President to transform this great country into its full potential. We need to stop being mediocre..

    3. " I get to work with people from Mexico"; that's probably in the USA right? you do realize that the ones that can spell their name, have no reason for coming to work with you, they are living fine in Mexico. mostly the poor, uneducated Mexicans come to the states

  19. It just amazes me that y'all still don't understand that these police stations are nothing more, nothing less than cartel cells. They aren't police officers protecting the citizens. They are criminals worse than there attackers in many cases. Wake up.

    Death penalty my ass. Mexico cannot afford to prosecute nor incarcerate 5 % of their arrests. They let them go in 3 to 6 weeks. Prosecuting a death penalty case costs more than they spend on 100 inmates prosecutions. All you John Wayne death penalty chanters need to go back to something you understand such as Guns and Ammo Magazine. This site is about trends in crime and what is going on with the cartels. We are tired of hearing your Military 101 and Criminology 101 blurbs. They are since-less without merit and show how little you know about the subject. Guns and Ammo needs you !!!!!

    Bye-bye :-P

    Does Mexico even know what a "fingerprint" is? I am sure that there are many well written articles on Google that they could refer to and then check those casings and guess what? Maybe, just maybe they will find prints of whom ever did this crime...

  22. In rural Mexico, everybody in the community knows everything about everyone else. The problem arises with rampant corruption. People are afraid to report to cops that may be aligned with the killers. Provide a competent authority and the. See will be easy to crack. Find one suspect and persuade him to lead you to the rest. The other thing that would help is the Death Penalty. LOL!!

  24. "Which nation is going to run the new show?"
    -----------------------------------------------

    That is a good question. Let me propose a plan which may save Mexico. First, put the Germans in charge of all police and military. They know how to kick ass and take names better than anyone else. Then, put the British in charge of all government administration. They are good at this. Now, if you are going to put all of these Europeans into Mexico, they have to be fed something other than tacos and beans. Let's put the French in charge of all food services for the entire country. No matter what you think about the French, their food is to die for! The Italians, the poor Italians, what can they do to help. They have proven time and again that since the fall of the Roman Empire, their military can't kick shit off their own shoes. Guess we'll have to put them in charge of animal control and street sweeping. Finally, let's let the Russian KGB be in charge of all clandestine operations where they ferret out all of the bad guys and "remove" them permanently.

    Just a "lighter" side to all the morbid comments I read here. The truth is, there probably isn't a solution for Mexico's problems in the foreseeable future. Such a pity.

  25. The death penalty for shooting at a defenseless wall makes total sense! Sure it does! Only the most vile of the vile would do that. More than likely, it was out of frustration because those police are already being paid for by a rival.
