Perhaps feeling a little pressure into becoming a little quicker on the draw, Tamaulipas authorities released a statement acknowledging the shootout  that occurred in Reynosa on Saturday.

In the statement it confirms at least five people were killed in the clash between an armed group and members of the Mexican Army, the statement was released by the Attorney General and the Ministry of Public Security of Tamaulipas.

The clash occurred at the corner of Avenida Mexico City and Washington Street, the colonial Hacienda Las Fuentes.

Among the dead are three men and two women, whose ages ranged from 25 to 30 years old, who have not been identified.
The bodies were found by military elements inside a 2002 sand color Chevrolet Tahoe color, which inside the truck soldiers  found several weapons and tactical equipment
Statement:

This is not new, it began in Guate about 2 yrs ago. At least that is when I first heard of it being an issue. I began reading about it in central American papers. From there is spread across CA.

In Guate this social cleaning spread to suspected people that people rumored guilty yet later others say that the person was only guilty of being poor. Even kids that were not criminals but came from families that are impoverished or socially undesirable.

It is pretty bad

So sad.... NOT! You want to play with the big boys you get treated like such. The military isn't going to not shoot you because you simply are a female. Anybody with a gun shooting at you is an enemy. It's shoot to kill.

Military has its up and downs but they can't say they lost to the public cause they get in trouble that's why you hardly ever see how many militarized died in these battles

So true they get obligirated every time. You would think they would learn and avoid confrontation. They're low level sicarios though they give them a vest rifle ammo and no training and send them to die. How stupid can you be to even to participate. Has to be the drugs and feeling invincible for the moment. Drugs make you do dumb dumb things...

ACUNA @10:45
I am writing a post and hopefully it will be complete today or tomorrow about Acuña, it is about the violence and blackout media.

did you see the #anonymous freeacuna? I will include that in my post. I am getting many emails and comments from readers asking for acuna info, there is no where to turn to access information. But we must remember to have integrity in what we pass on, be sure of sources. for example the mantas about schools is unfounded....stay tuned

Paz, Chivis

Reminds me of the old kill ratio BS back during Vietnam,US losses 2 Kong 50 etc. Mexico is the king of misinformation, sort of like the USA Fed reports on unemployment,inflation,and economic growth.

Thats because the military have been trained for combat and weapons training.most narcos have the firepower but if u dont have the training in tactical and other maneuvers they dont help them much in a confrontation with the military crooked or not.not to say the military dont lose some men but not nearly as many as the narcos lose in a gun battle with them

Tahoes , suburbands , gmc denali or yukon, jeep cherokee , ford f150 , dodge ram , chevy avalanche , mexican chevy cheyenne n ford lobo are some of the most common trucks narcos use

@3:41 or maybe the military just overwhelm the narco's by 3 to 1 ratio with a big heavy machine gun strapped to the back o one them hummer type army vehicles....just fill that tahoe fulla bullets and occupants included,tahoe was not armored so for bullets it was easy penetration.
Good job,well done Mexican Army.

no shit, you would think they would keep low profiles, but when you have been spoiled into thinking you can run around standing out, that you won't get fucked with, but as usual its the old kc shuffle, you got things going on over here, when the shipments are going on over there..

.50 calibre rounds from guns mounted on military vehicles will do that to a tahoe and occupants(riddled with bullets that is)

I agree with you, maps help out a lot

Gente del Cartel del Golfo le poncharon las llantas al Gobernador de Tamaulipas en Reynosa por eso el mando que los matara sigan haciendo atentados contra su persona pendejos y se les va caer su teatrito en Tamaulipas Golfas!
