  • Two unidentified men were found murdered in a van in Juarez municipality Tuesday night.  The victims were aboard a Ford Aerostar minivan parked near the Apodaca-Juarez highway.  Both victims had been tortured and shot to death.  A message was left at the scene but its  contents were not disclosed.
  • The warden for the Topo Chico Centro de Readaptacion Social (CERESO) was shot to death in Monterrey Wednesday.  The victim was identified as Melani Azeneth Castro Barbosa, who was shot at her home on Avendia Joaquin A. Mora in Felipe Carrillo colony.  Reports say two unidentified men shot the victim.
  • Four unidentified individuals including one female were shot to death in Monterrey Wednesday afternoon.  The victims were near the intersection of Avenida Rodrigo Gomez and Calle Rio Danubio in Alfonso Reyes colony when armed suspects shot them.

Comandante Diablo cleaning up Mexico?? Was the video of his family being killed true?

Anonymous said...

DFL the cartels are not gangbangers common criminals there multi-billion dollar organizations. Dont get confused douchebag and dont say shit about the Mexican government not having a spine they sent the army to fight the cartels soldiers and cops are dying fighting them so don't act like an asshole and say there just there with there arms crossed doing nothing. You really should look at the u.s first chicago has in some weeks more the 100 shooting victims. In that sense does that mean the u.s government is spineless not really cuz no one could actually stop random shootings. Just look at what happen in aurora colorado no government has total control of there people hope you realize that and stop being a prick no one likes that kind of person

I donna think all the victims were los Zetas! El comandante de Diablo is fucked up after the peril of his family and he is fucking coward who is really pissed off and maybe he has left Mexico for being afraid getting murdered.

Wrong. The army is not fighting the cartels - they are corrupt and fight on the side of whatever cartel is paying them.

Yup exactly! out here in Stockton California on the serio someone gets shot everyday or every other day but believe me every block on the South, West, and East side is pretty much gang inhabited. The US is fucked up too just out here you dont have dismembered gang bangers or fully automatic gun battles although some places foos down the fullys.

you are a complete idiot. The Mexican Military doesnt choose sides they follow orders hence the fact they are soldiers. but on the other hand it depends who there leader is cuz it may be him on the payroll and hes the only one that can give orders. The military goes and fights only on orders other than that they are exercising or at there base waiting. but cartels do control most police officers. money talks. mexicans are greedy.

el diablo is in custody, he has been sitting in jail for months. He was arrested months ago.

Yeah while cia training backfire on them and almost got them.killed in Mexico . Right with us sending 80% of weapons used by cartels which can be pretty easily bought in the states . Marines caught trafficking weapons for cartels,operations such as fast and furious ,and overlook allowing weapons to be send without thwarting Mexican govern knowing such things.
Now i have a question for you brought.
ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED? Fox news has you in stupidity.

The 2nd amendment of the US Constitution allows Americans to own guns to protect their family and property when the police, militia, or government can not. Mexicans need to get with the program. Any cheerleader can shoot an unarmed man. Its a completely different story when they are shooting back.

Well after watching the news this morning the number is over 30 people killed in 24-hour period.

This guy knows what he is into,he probably somewhere involved in other shit,they dont stay in one area all the time.They get orders to go help out others in other areas.They got safehouses an shit to rest up and chill,before going out to kidnap and chop the other side up.
Does this guy Diablo strike anyone as the type to pussy out anytime?

You are wrong. These Cartels are run by a bunch of worthless gangbanger common criminals and Yes the Mexican Police and population are for the most part spineless. What country has entire Police departments quitting out of Fear and a People who refuse to take action and fight back. They are cowards and spineless assholes who take money like whores and would gladly turn in thier own people to live and die the way they do. Its as fucked up place and its people have become like the Jews who were rounded up like cattle and lead to thier deaths by a small handful of people, to afraid to stand up and fight back. These gangbanger punks are in firm control with nobody fighting back. The police who are dying in Mexico are being killed for not following the orders of thier masters, not for protecting anyone else but them.

Not necessarily relevant to this particular post, but this was on the news yesterday and seeing as this blog is normally related to everything narco, I thought I'd share. This family has ties to los caballeros templarios.

Mexico is very poor the grow tomatoes and other produces and they sell them for nothing while us buys them and sell it for 100 times the price they grow a pound of tomatoes and us buy them for2or 3 cent a pound and put it in the sore for two dollars a pound people have been stompin over mexicans for a long time and now that they have no patience for the govn or america theyare monsters its the 21st century and people are still being treated like slave its time for a peoples revolution and if it goes down I wouldnt want too help the gov all gov over the world are corrupt except columbia.bolivia I might sound stupid but its my opinion if any counrtry in latin america had a second amendment the think how strong the cartels would be if they could buy guns in there own cities it probley will be alot of mayham and too clear it up there has never been an official war on drugs its a war on minoritys fuck the police they go after everyone but the people that commit vicious crimes like kidnappin rape phedophiles ect %Peoples revolurion

August 30,2012 9:05 am ......... I was telling that douchebag DFL that the u.s has some of the same problems Mexico has like massacres,drug trafficing,random gang killings etc etc. He thinks the u.s is candyland with none of the above. So really im just saying the truth about the u.s. Were not no where near to being perfect. We have no right to call other countries fucked up when we are also fucked up in one way or another. I suggest you look at yourself cuz you seem to be whining about people saying that America has tons of problems to with gang bangers,debt,serial killings,school shootings,drug dealers,hate groups such as the kkk and nazi idiots,largest market for drugs aka junkie nation,corruption,u.s government letting high powered rifles into cartel hands,and those are just a few things to list. On that sense next time realize most of the worlds countries are fucked up,so i think your the one who like how you put it should " shut the fuck up" your just another prick like DFL.

Toltepeceno said...

Funny how moron's quickly compare the US to mexico when something happens. The truth is there is no comparison, it's far worse here in mexico. You cannot trust the police at all, many times they are the criminals. These idiotic comparisons only belittle the lives of the many innocent mexican's that are butchered. The media want you to believe it's only narco's killing narco's. Simpleton's believe it.

Anonymous said...

the reality of things is that México is a fucked up place to live in if you are poor or if you don't have any connections. This is a sign of how crumbled Mexican society is and a sign of desperate change in the current system. Nobody is talking about the elections that were stolen from the people and the incredible magnitude of corruption that has led to this. We in the US should not talk shit because we live a different dimention of corruption and violence.

I'm an idiot but you just agreed with me? Whoever is in charge is on the payroll and gives the orders direct from the cartel. It is well-known in Mexico that the military is part of the problem and as corrupt as everything else in Mexico. Get a clue!

Monterrey is pretty big..and all spread out ....some people getting killed is not that noticeable..I was just there..it seemed pretty calm..strange how you can be in a war zone and it seem calm...people still have to live and go about their business..just kind of ignore the militares and policia..i was there (not in the bar) when Matahuelas got shot up...blood in the gutter..normal ..for Mexico
