Fierce Shootout In Juarez-Police Agencies vs El Chapo's Sicarios

Chief Leyzaola shares a laugh with reporters after the intense gun fight
A firefight among ministerial, federal and municipal police with an armed group that barricaded themselves in an address located in vicinity of the Avenue Municipio Libre and Libertad Street, created terror among the inhabitants of that section and resulted in two deaths and 3 arrests.
The Municipio Libre Avenue, at the height of the Carlos Adame Street was closed to vehicle traffic, while in Globo Street, lay the bodies of two persons killed in the brutal shootout.
According to official records, at least 10 men took cover in a two story building located on Ulises Irigoyen Street. At  that point they confronted the authorities, from 8:20 pm for about one hour until they were subdued.
The aggressors were constantly challenging the corporations and at least one of them identified himself as municipal agent.
The Municipal Police snipers placed SSPM to repel aggression, while the perpetrators often interfered with police radio frequency and challenged the corporation by issuing warnings such as “Do not mess with Salvador Chairez”. Chairez is a local leader of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The vicinity was bursting with  police officers of all corporations and fire elements. Usage among the different radio bands was compromised, which prompted  the Federal Police to contract  the armor vehicle “Rhino”, and advance to the area of the intense gunfire. The bullet-proof vehicle was  used to blast through the door of the building and subdue  the gun men, whom one of them was a municipal police.

Julian Leyzaola, chief of this corporation, stated that the  clash started when a kidnapping attempt of a woman was reported to the Municipal Police and agents of this corporation located the group that was travelling with long guns in sight.
After following them, the men took cover in the building of the Colonia Chavena, located in the streets of Municipio Libre and Ulises Irigoyen, which in minutes the gunmen were surrounded causing the confrontation, he added.
The chief detailed that two aggressors died and two were injured while one more was unharmed.

The whole drug war is the beginning of a revolution. why do you america gave mexico guns and the whole fast and furious operation went spoiled? we gave them the guns so they can crippled themself's and it's government we gave them the guns cause we know how the cartel work and when it comes time for a new world order they will follow the real master's and that's us or our government, sure a couple of our border agent's die but we'll replace them... thats how fucked up we are! we are lied too, dont you think we should help our neighbors in mexico and send troops and camps and make a structure over there, but instead we travel half across the world to help another country fallin apart?! cause were spreadin over there, while our neighbors (mexico) tear there self apart we jus make sure it doesnt spread over here, cause they got something plan over here for us americans just think about everyone this is the beginning!!! and were all part of it!!! wonderful time to being alive we get to witness the rebirth of atlantis!!!

@12:53

So how exactly do you expect the death penalty to work in mexico? This is the country where prisoners were let out of prison every night to commit executions. The country where mayors are tortured to death if they dont cooperate with cartels. The country where information is almost impossible to find or verify.

How would you even begin to implement an effective death penalty here?

And also, its not like halcones dont already face the prospect of a lengthy, painful death today.

Mexico has failed its people. There is a hobbsian state of nature where the criminals act with impunity. And the people have no mercy for their suffering. Since the government has a veneer of legality it is the problem. Because it prevents mexicans from defending themselves. If mexicans are to free themselves from this tyranny, they should start with the government-Rodrigo Medina, gov. of nuevo leon is on the payroll of the zetas. He appointed the apodaca prison director Gernomimo Martinez, knowing that he was removed in 2009 from a similar job at a prison for corruption. He reputedly allowed a group of kidnappers and extortionists, the gang of Giovanni Bautista Rodriguez, to operate from the Penal de Santa Matha prison. In the Apodaca prison it was the same thing. Prisoners were allowed to go out and commit murders. Then with the help of guards and the prison director, the zetas prisoners systematically murdered over 30 prisoners from an opposing cartel before making their escape. The zetas printed narcomantas saying that Medina was on their payroll. He denied it with the passion not seen since a briliant actor's portrayal of hamlet. Well what do you think. You just have to look at the guy to know that he is on the take.

nobody's commented on the fact that this occured on "Globo" street????

Anonymous said...

Actually its four left unaccounted for because the next day some of Chapo's sicarios attacked the police at the mouth of the Juarez Valley, the territory Juarez that the people who are backed by Chapo actually have some operational control over. One sicario was killed and you can bet your ass that this guy belonged to the cell that escaped the previous night. They probably went to either Riveras del Bravo or El Sauzal to restock their weapons and waited for a police patrol to enter the area for their routine morning drivethru.

I am positive that the guy killed was from the cell because they were sent from Torreon to mix in and operate in the downtown sector without too many problems. Since they fucked up the responsibility was theirs to retaliate. Locals only provided the guns and the stolen vehicle but physcially would not get involved because that would provide leads to the NCJ about who to specifically target in the Valley area.

As I have stated before, GN in Juarez is relatively decimated due to both war of attrition and to the fact that they have been pulled to fight other plazas that they actually have a realistic posibility of contolling. For now Chapo's people are content to have access to the ports of entry, but have settled to remain at a stalemate with regards to their ambitions to displace the Juarez Cartel structure and completely control Juarez.

It amazes me how ignorant we in the US are about the horror show that is a 24/7 ongoing nightmare the the innocent Mexican men women and children. They face hardship and danger trying to escape to the US and prefer to live here below the poverty in order to protect themselves and families. Sure, the bad guys are here too, but the ones who work hard and keep their heads down quietly go about living their lives as best they can. The revenue from the oil companies was supposed to belong to the Mexican people!

Asshole you mentioning Chapo as though he is a living saint..wakeup you dumb shitbag..All narco bastards are the same, its just the name & parties (ie: cartels) that differ just like bastard politicians.

Julian Leyzaola is one of those few Mexican cops who are college educated and professional but at the same time are fearless like "Rambo" who laugh and go to sleep like a baby after gunfights with Chapos or Zetas.Another person like him is General Bibiano Villa.

You're quite right, lately I've been having either a multiple personality disorder attack or it might be an identity crisis and Mary Poppins has been the latest one to Pop Into My Life: and suddenly I find myself thinking about umbrellas all day long, can't get them off of my mind, and so I've decided to see a good shrink before I go too far off the deep end to the point of no return!

They escaped? Two possibilities:

1. They bribed their way out.

2. They were executed.

La Linea must still control the cops in Ciudad Juarez.

As far as worshiping Chapo, he destroyed Juarez. He has basically destroyed Mexico, he started all this shit in the first place.

Anonymous said...

@ lito brito. Surround? I don't think they know what that means in Mexico. The word surround must not exist in the spanish language LOL.

Anonymous said...

In Juarez La linea and the Chaputas are in some type of agreement because snitchaloa pays alot to the pjf for protection. Anyway its split in two sections but if either cartel is caught slippin they get canceled. I read this and I have family and friends from there that have confirmed. I just forgot the fuckin street name. When chapo eneterd he basically bought the higher ranking cops and feds for their info and then flipped them. He started killing them as soon as he found out what he needed and here we are. He snitched on them a shitload to make Culoderon look good and get some heat off his fagget ass. Everything in the majority of mexico was fine until he got greedy and started this backstabbing bullshit. He did it to the AFO in Tijuana and now Chihuahua but El Viceroy hasnt flinched or gotten caught. He's soley responsible for about 80,000 deaths. ATTE. Gente Cansada de mamadas!!

are you shitting me if there is one thing that mexico needs is better police radio frequency and tracking Tech, this is what the us should donate to them

Wasn't Chapo a hit man in the 80's he must of killed dozens of people buy his on hands so the man is no saint

SUPERMAX IS GAY!!! said...

im so tired of the dumb ass that constantly writes the same comment on every story "why dont we send them to american prisons they would never get out there" dude we get your point the prisons here in the U.S. are better then the prisons in mexico. and guess what lots of cartel bosses are extradited to the states. but seriously its not our job to bring every single cartel member to the states i dont want my tax dollars paying for 50,000 more mexicans to get 3 meals a day and a warm bed to sleep in. also stop mentioning how bad ass supermax is the way you talk about it i sware you must work for the prison.

Hello 'July 27, 2012 2:03 AM',

I wrote that idea here yesterday FOR A FIRST TIME. If you've red it before SOMEONE ELSE WROTE IT Not Me. My concern is KEEPING dangerous criminals off the Mexican streets. Knowing that Mexican prisons are corrupt the concern is for trying to avoid the occurrence of more loss of life if prisoners are permitted to escape from prison.

Mexico would foot the bill for the upkeep of the sent to USA prisoners.

I'm do not work for the law, I'm just a blogger, AND DON'T CALL ME A DUMB ASS AGAIN please & thank you!

I do understand you position in the matter no need to insult others

Thats fuckin funny how they told the law over the radios that they were la chapparra people and they probably were like good we're at the rite house!

Anonymous said...

what world do you live in??? the mexicans would not foot the bill for anyone in us prisons.I also do not want these people on mexican streets. but the mexican gov't needs to put these guys in a maximum security prison on there own soil. but due to the corruption within the mexican gov't alot needs to change before that will happen. they should treat all there prisoners like la barbie
