Probably kidnap victims forced to shoot.

I really find myself wondering if these people actually in all honesty shoot at the police First..! Or the police pull them over,find weapons and drugs and then just kill them in order to make sure the'll never have to fuck with them in the future. Thats how it is in all of Latin American second rate justice systems.

@9:59AM It refers to the cry for independence which was given in Dolores Hidalgo Gto. Try to learn something before you reveal your ignorance.

I have to laugh at September 16, 2012 6:19 PM's comment. If I had a dollar for every white guy who's gone down to Mexico thinking exactly like you and has disappeared, I'd have a lot of money. There are literally dozens of families in Texas making hopeless appeals in search of loved ones who went to Mexico. You were lucky, dude. Do it a few more times and we'll be seeing your family appealing for information relating to your disappearance.

The last incident by the Revolucion Bridge and Avenida Revolucion, that's like a stone-throw away from Tec de Monterrey, yes?

Also, no report on the 12 people killed in a mechanics shop the same weekend?
