Mixed groups of Mexican federal security forces including Mexican Army units have begun to redeploy to Choix municipality in Sinaloa following reports of a large number of shootings, according to various Mexican news accounts.

A Saturday afternoon news item posted on the website of El Diario de Coahuila news daily, quoted an El Universal news story saying four more dead were found Saturday in Choix municipality near the village of Lorito.  The unidentified victims were killed three days before.  The find was made from an anonymous telephone call.

In a news report on the website of El Siglo de Durango news daily, several recent incidents have forced security forces to re-enter an area that only a few weeks ago was the location one of the most violent large scale intergang fighting since the summer of 2010.

According to a news item on the website if Azteca Noticias news daily, gunfights have taken place in Culican municipality and in Choix in recent days with at least one dead and three wounded.  The Choix gunfight took place last Tuesday afternoon and last five minutes.  A number of wounded were taken to a local medical clinic.

Periodico Expreso news daily reported on their website Thursday that two had died in Choix and three more had been wounded.

Choix municipality was the location last May where several armed operatives from the Beltran-Leyva cartel, Juarez Cartel and Los Zetas had combined to fight operatives from the Sinaloa cartel.  The fighting in the area began last April 28th and lasted several days, and had spread to other municipalities including Guasave and Culican totalling, by this writer's count, 56 dead.  Eventually Mexican Army and Naval Infantry units totalling 600 effectives  filtered into Choix municipality attempting to cordon the western approaches to the area.

Unconfirmed news reports at the time said a number of cartel operatives had escaped the cordon to the east into Chihuahua state and passed Mexican Army road patrols.

  3. There have been several reports of residents who have been killed after they tried to go back to the homes they abandoned after the first massive fights that are referred to in the story. There were hundreds of families displaced, refugees, into the larger cities.

    1. So sad. Mostly innocent farm families that were barely surviving to begin with. Find an open field - away from any innocents- and let the cartels fight it out face to face. But they wont. Bunch of pussies!

  4. Things will be calmer with PRI. PAN were nothing more than whipping boys for Bush. Conservatism breeds slavery and nothing more, Let them work out whatever deal they must if it saves lives. Prohibition hasn't worked since the creation. God only had two people to watch and could not stop them from breaking the rules.

    1. 165 dead in culiacan in june alone.. Chapo isidro seems to be good at his job. They say he and his men are now called LA PESADILLA DE LOS ANTRAX. dont get me wrong a good cartelero is a dead one. I just smile ALOT when one man can cause such havock to a cartel that is supposedly untouchable. There has been stories where a couple of rancheros have killed zetas. See nobody is untouchable sooner than later they will die especially in mexicles

    Synthetic Marijuana Becoming an Epidemic
    Updated: Jul 6, 2012 5:53 PM

    EDINBURG - Synthetic marijuana is becoming an epidemic in the Rio Grande Valley, said one local physician.

    Dr. Ron McMurray of Edinburg Regional Medical Center said local emergency rooms are filling up with people smoking the potent chemical.

    "Anywhere from two to six or seven a day possibly," McMurray said of the number of cases they see, although he said it's almost impossible to quantify the real number of cases.

    McMurray said the chemicals in synthetic marijuana can trigger violent physical and mental episodes and in some cases the side effects can be deadly.

    "People can completely go crazy," he said.

    Valley doctors said there is no test to detect the drug.

    McMurray said the drug leads to irrational behavior, actions not typically associated with regular marijuana.

    The severity of the problem hit close to home for a Rio Grande Valley family after their son went missing in Austin. He was using synthetic drugs. Police found him a week later at a homeless shelter.

    McMurray said synthetic marijuana can be about 10 times as potent as regular marijuana and 100 times more dangerous.

    He said patients can suffer dementia, hallucinations and heart attacks.

    The FDA last year banned several chemicals used to make synthetic drugs, but manufacturers have found new formulas to keep their products in the market.

  15. If only we knew the whole situation to this atrocities... What is really behind this war? Just like the rest of the world. All because the fascinating minds we have, anybody can think and create and test. We humans are so delicate, but it seems some people just want to go beyond everyone else. It is very sad when we are children, but when we are grown ups, its common to do what ever we want.
