Three mantas were discovered today in the municipality of Acuña, the Coahuila state that is adjacent to Del Rio Texas.
The issue as stated in the mnatas surround the appointment by the governor, Rueben Moreira, of Jose Antonio Camp Arredondo to head a newly formed agency yet to be named that will work separately from the municipal police, to police cities such as Piedras Negras.
On its face it sounds an effective move to counter the well-known corruption in narco controlled municipalities, however if the mantas displayed in the early hours of today are to be believed it is as though the fox will be guarding the hen house.
The mantas were placed on 3 bridges, across from a school on Mateos Boulevard, the name of the school is Guadalupe Victoria, and on the Hidalgo bridge as well as the bridge on Emilio Mendoza Cisneros highway.
Mantas bearing the same text appeared in Piedras Negras.
This manta is difficult to translate as phrasing includes sayings that make no sense to English speakers. The lead in sentence means “This person with the innocent face, is far from innocent, and he is the man the governor wants sent to Piedras Negras”, the manta contends the man to lead the new police agency has a corrupt history of wrongdoings.
“This is the person with a face of : I didn’t break the dish, but he breaks more, he is whom GOVERNOR MOREIRA wants to send to Piedras Negras to create leaders of the new police he wants to establish. which has neither a defined name, but one name is this man:
called Jose Antonio Campa Arredondo, alias 'El Campanita'; He was Director of the Municipal preventive police in Cuernavaca, Morelos. "On October 2 last year was fired for links with drug trafficking, because he was subjected to a few tests of confidence in Cuernavaca and he failed”. (usually a polygraph)
I think this is the text or close in Spanish (from TexPat)
MOREIRA kiere mandar para piedras negras para que sea el lider fundador o pionero de la POLICIA nueva que kiere hacer, ke ni tiene nombre definido. pero el ke si tiene nombre es este er se llama jose antonio campa arredondo alias "campanita" fue director policia municipal preventiva de cuernavaca morelos. el 2 de octubre del año pasado fue dado de baja k nexos con el narcotrafico, y por causa de eso fue sometido a unos examenes de confianza en cuernavaca. mismos que no aprobo. MOREIRA SOLO KIERE UN RATERO MAS PARA SU GABINETE.....
