Bar Heaven Mass Kidnapping Audio: Witness Account Translated

Sunday, June 9, 2013 |

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

The following is the translation of a recorded testimony given by a witness who was a patron at  the Bar Heaven, when 12 people were taken in a mass kidnapping in Tepito on May 26th.
 
This was difficult to transcribe I welcome any corrections that are relevant to the witness account. 

Below is footage at the time of kidnapping  


Recording I
 “This is the complete truth…”

“We were sitting down, then the manager; El Polo arrived and told us that an operative was going to come because the owner of the Black was hit, so we were all thrown out…”

“My friend and I were the last ones to get out …”

“They were going out of the door of the Heaven (bar), they were trying to exit and that’s when the convoy arrived…”

“I never saw anybody, I was inside and when it arrived, my friend closed the door and we were the ones that managed to get out through the roof terrace”

“The police need to find the manager of the Heaven, he is called El Polo”

Recording II
“At one point in time  I saw the entire ruckus and I started to run inside.…
This is not an operative; there is no need to enter with guns”
“I was with Gabriela (Reyes Martinez) and with the ones at the other table…”
“Then they were doing an operative and one by one they were  going out but I was the last one because I was saying goodbye to all my friends and that’s when it started…”
 
“So when I got out I didn’t see Polo (manager) at the front entrance of the bar Heaven.”
"I didn't see him anymore..."  "Josue and his brother were taken, they were with the blonde girl wearing a blue dress, I don't know if they took her too because I think they were searching for her."
“We were told that an operative was going to take effect, so we were exiting one by one, the music was turned off and we were going out one by one (inaudible)”
“Outside Heaven, I saw the disturbance…”

“Honestly, I was very bad, I saw what was happening and I got scared and since my buddy ran out I did the same thing. We were hiding for an hour and when everything ended, we went inside the bar but it was already closed, so we had to climb through the back (terrace)…”
“The manager should be located (contacted), he is responsible for all this! He must have something and probably it was he was who sent them (the convoy), he said: go out! I’ll make you pay…” (This is confusing)

“We were the only ones there, the last ones; and there were some guys that were able to get out when they announced that they were going to close”

“They even took themselves some beer, they were the first ones to go out but we were paying for the bottle”

“My buddy was the one who used to talk with the manager but he doesn’t answer the phone calls anymore”

“I’m going to tell you something: Did you know that one at the bar Black who was killed?

“I think it was the manager of Heaven who did it, because he had gone to find  us when we managed to get out”

“My buddy called him when all of this happened and he told him: Now what Polo? don’t fuck with me, what is all that fucking shit about? what about my friends?”

“He says: No bro, I don’t know, I don’t know- kill them- kill them all.. And my friend asked: what do you mean kill them all?”

“I don’t know who did it and then he hung up and I didn’t know of anything else…”

“And he also told me that he was the one that killed the guy from the Black (bar)”

“All I know is that he is called Polo, he is a short guy, he always wears suits, and he has hair with  a lot of gel”

“He is a short guy that uses suits… He is dark skinned, short, always uses suits and he was always in the bar Heaven and everybody knows him…”

It will be interesting to see how the head of the government of el D.F. handles this case. Miguel Ángel Mancera belongs to the leftist Democratic Revolution Party (PRD). He has already come out and said that their is no cartels in Mexico City.

This is is sad , but in a way it should be warning for all the people in the states.. Boycott Mexico and its tourist states... mess with the Mexican tourist areas and I'm willing to bet Puto Nieto will start doing something about it... I used to love Mexico now and won't even go to Nogales to visit my family.. cartels are a piece of shit , but the government are a lot worst (specially cops)...

What a stupid, ignorant comment. When was the last mass kidnapping in the US or EU? When was the last time you saw armed convoys of 20 SUVs full of cartel commandos in the US or EU? Doesnt happen sorry. Mexico is the most dangerous country on Earth outside of active warzones in Afghanistan. Stop saying rediculously stupid things to push your own agenda.

Anonymous said...

there are mass executions in the us, attempted and fulfilled but it is usually done by one or two people that have parted with reality or snapped, and it is usually for some political means, or revenge, not just to kidnap and get money then kill the poor souls for money. this type of shit just doesnt happen much at all here and if this stuff is happening, it is just by your mexican cartels on their own piasas here in the states. while similar things may happen here and there, they just dont happen with the same frequency and the victims arent met with the same apathy as they are in mehico. yes i agree that there may be some upper level corruption here, much the same as everywhere else, but we have no where near as much national insecurity as mexico.. mexico is fucked and needs a major uprooting to reboot the whole social system there. modern mexico is the result of such ingrained impunity against those who have no rules...

They have video and audio of a witness. If this crime isn't solved, it's because Mexican police (anti-kidnapping unit, federal, state, or army), were involved themselves and helped carry it out.
Either way we will never really know the truth since they can always pin it on someone innocent just to take the heat off themselves. From the group kidnapped you have a few chicks that certainly look like putas, a 15 year old, 30 something year old, etc. and all from Tepito. Sounds to me like they were selling drugs where they shouldn't have. Drugs are exactly what go on in after hour clubs. Managers, owners, cartel all get a cut of that. If they aren't paid their "piso" or rent, they get angry.

Yes,and going by the comments always on here,they hate the"gringo"and the US with a passion.That kind of persistent negativity and hate only feeds a kind tit for tat hatred from people ordinarily passive and non committal about such matters.Mexicans don't seem to want to get past this kind of negativity?I have no pre-conception or hate at all for Mexicans,but i have to say,even i get tired of being called names and stereotyped as some kind of race hating"whiteboy"a stereotype that is by the way completely wrong and is now being used as a political tool by various parties.This negativity is non-productive in the extreme,grown men argue about who is the more racist or who's country is worse?It brings nothing but anger and hate,is that what we really want for each other,then again,do we even care now?Probably not,so it goes on and on and,,,anyway,it is what it is?

The truth is the cartels have infiltrated into almost every 50 U.S. States. Do we have mass kidnappings, beheadings and so forth? No, because the cartels don't want to risk that shit show. We do have constant kidnappings of dope dealer low lifes who owe the cartels but they are usually released once the Feds get involved. Lax borders, a week immigration policy, combined with incompetent U.S. politicians have led to this. The cartel violence in the U.S. is present but mostly ignored by the leftist and so called republican politicians who want to push immigration policy for votes. Just look at the murder of the Gulf Cartel lawyer in South Lake, Texas. Was there any national media attention? Of course not. It's all down hill from here.

There is some serious IQ deficiency posting here. Similar shit does happen in the US everyday. Drive to S Chicago, Detroit, Camden, Newark, and hundreds of other areas in the US that is just as "government less" as parts of Mexico..and they do kidnap, roll convoys, and extort. US is no less corrupt than Mexico and the people are no better and the bad are just as bad.

I was in Monterrey on may 4th celebrating my birthday with family. We went to a nice resturaunt for dinner. The next day two people were killed leaving the place while the manager was kidnapped. I never went out after that. The drive back to south Texas was scary knowing that the guys dressed up like military could be the bad ones. Never again am I going south again. Shortly after that , an American marine, his dad and uncle were kidnapped in Progresso Tamps never to be heard from again.

Hey Twister @7:36

Sorry buddy, the map is mine NOT Mundo/BDN, they stole it from me I posted it a few days ago on this post:
http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2013/06/bar-heaven-mass-kidnapping-tepito-12.html

If you look closely you will see the BB2013 I put on all my images, on the map it is hiding among the stripes in the upper part of Sonora

As for your Zeta comment, I am now making a great map, it is a progression map of Zetas. I began it in 2000. then again in 2010 and again in 2013. It will be finished in a couple of weeks, I just finished 2010.

But you are reading the map wrongly. Zetas have increased their territory but are challenged that is why the stripes. In places like Tamps of course they have territory but like them in Coahuila where they have good control but CDG and CDS roam also said of CDG in tamps. what I do not like is the map does not define was faction of cdg is where. I tried getting that info to create such a map but information is all over the place so I gave up.

If anyone does have a good knowledge of such info I would love to hear from you.

can you please give me a link to the post where mundo is using my map? I have a dozen or so people that told me mundo has it and put their watermark on it. a couple other readers said mundo watermark covered part of the explanation. I sent those people a copy for my doc file.
