2 Juarez Police Officers Dead, 3 Injured in Weekend Attack

Two Juarez police officers were shot to death and three more survived an attack during a violent weekend in Juarez that targeted peace officers.
 
As a result of those attacks, the municipal police force will be sequestered "as long as it will be necessary," authorities said Monday. "We are going to sequester the officers as we did it before," said Juárez Mayor Héctor Murguía. "They will be sequestered at the federal police headquarters."

The string of violence against city police officers started Friday morning when a police convoy was ambushed by an armed command at the intersection of Montes Urales Avenue and the Oscar Flores Boulevard. Three officers were injured during the attack.

One of them remains in serious condition in a local hospital. The other two were released from the hospital the same day with no threatening life injuries. A second attack on police officers occurred Saturday morning when an officer was killed while still in his pajamas outside of his house at La Chaveña neighborhood in downtown.

That same day in the evening, another officer was shot while watching over a convenience store at the Anahuac neighborhood.

Murguía said the attacks against the officers was a result of the actions taken by the municipal police to fight organized crime and he refused the idea that the violence is resurging in the city.

"The police corporations are working together to reduce the number of crimes in the city", he said in a press release. "We have a strong and qualified police force."

This is the second time that the police force gets sequestered. In January this year, the officers were confined to hotels after a string of violence left more than eight officers killed in just that month.

Adrián Sánchez Contreras, spokeman of the municipal police, said the sequestration process will start today.

He said the officers will continue patrolling the streets, but they won't go to home after their shift. "They will work like normal," he said. "But they can't go home. This is for their safety".

The sequestration process will last as long as necessary, he said.

These are cops that were under chapos payroll, but since chapo no longer sends money to GN, GN is out of business.

These cops who are being killed were all aligned with Guzman and GN,and now they unprotected cause Guzman has abandoned GN over there?And the crew doin the huntin is The Line and Aztecs etc?Why all of a sudden these attacks on the cops who they want?What changed to make them start like this all of a sudden?Is this shit basically right,or wrong?Reading some of the Spanish comments it seems that's what going on?I could easily be wrong tho?

For the last 3 years you see people write on this blog about how Chapo and the GN are getting it taken to them. Reality as unpopular to some of you idiots who don't know shit is that Sinaloa has taken over just cause a few Linearos make some desprate moves doesn't mean shit. have family there fighting since 08' when my cousin got murdered in front of his home. since then my Fams is still there business as usual. if you don't know shut up. And its not all Aztecas who battle cds, some are on cds payroll. I remember how long it took some people on this blog to finally admit Sinaloa took over TJ. Sux to admit sometimes whats right in front of you that Snitcholoa is in control isn't it.

Who in Thierry right mind roots for a cartel? Really? This isn't football dumbasses. No matter the cartel, ppl are still getting killed, tortured, and raped. That's something to root for? I bet if you were in mx or had fam and friends killed you wouldn't be rooting for shit. Even if you're in the states an turning a profit thanks to a cartel you still shouldn't be favoring one over the other. Y'all act like this is a game. Grow the fuck up an take your vitamins kiddies. Hopefully one day you can grow a brain cell or two. Get out of your suburbs an try to find out about real life.

Kill all the cartels. If you need help from the U.S. just ask we are trigger happy Americans. Trust us we can outgun the cartels if Mexicans can't. All the guns the cartels are using are the ones we gave them anyways but don't think we didn't save the biggest for ourselves.

Well send a couple battalions of marines, special forces and a predator drone and then well see how bold the cartels are, im sure if one of our marines is beheaded we'll just level the entire country.

@9:34 yeah but its people like us spreading the news around the world of whats goin down in MX its horrible....but i still blame Chapo Snitchaloa for causing all this mayhem with help of the GOM...fkm both!!!

@11:16-oh I'm all for spreading the news about whats happening in mx. I tell ppl about this site and others whenever I get the chance. I'm just talking to those who are getting behind some of these cartels. If someone likes one cartel over another they're either straight retarded, or just too immature to grasp the concept that every cartel kills, rapes, and tortures people, sometimes innocent. An btw chapo isn't the only one talking to the cops. They all do it to some extent or another, chapo has just had more come to light than others

Shouting your mouth off about"cheerleaders"What makes you think all the cheerleaders are from the US?Most will be Mexican and they do it because that is where they are from,Sinaloa,TJ,Juarez,etc,some shouting for the Z from NL,why the fuck would i shout for any crew?I read about this shit,that's about all?You talking about brain cells,and then assume everyone in"suburbs"the little stereotype?
Basically your assuming a lot of bullshit,but i agree about shouting for some thing you have no affiliation with,that's pathetic.

The bottom line is that without that bisexual midget there would'nt be any of this. He started the war and setup every major cartel to be defeated for this "smuggling route" war. We could all go to Mexico and our families and friends would'nt be fucked with. He flooded the country with guns and conned people into his lies. In Chihuas and Durango they are flipping because he has'nt paid them or no longer backs them when the contras bring the fight for thier territory back, and thats the reality. He forced the gulf into this position, then linea and got sinaloa all fucked up. He can't even control his own fuckin state because his own people on his payroll turned in el mochomo. For the hardcore cheerleaders of any cartel hopefully you diehard fans can go join them. These cartels made Mexico into a real fuckin shithole for the hardworking people from all corners. You can't have shit now because you have to pay them your hard earned money.
