A memorial chapel appeared in Reynosa, Tamaulipas to honor Samuel Flores Borrego, aka Metro3 deceased chief of the plaza for the Golfo Cartel (CDG).
On 2 September 2011, Flores Borrego was found dead along with Eloy Lerma Garcia a Reynosa police officer on the outskirts of the city of Reynosa, Tamaulipas Authorities reported that he had been killed by members of CDG over disagreements and territorial disputes.
Embedded in the chapel video, at bottom of this post, were two messages. One is a flyer I have paraphrased for improved comprehension, it begins with a title that reads;
“Wherever you are partner, we know you are fine, and we know you are better”
On your birthday August 6, 1972) we remember you for what you represent in our lives, and what you continue to represent despite not being here. We commemorate and celebrate the friend who knew that living without friends was not living.
Who knew that a brother could not always be a friend but that a friend could be a brother.
Partner, today we worship you for what you gave the people, and for your fair treatment, You always knew being good was easy, the difficulty was in being fair, and you were that is why you were obeyed.
We know it is easy to be a boss, but difficult to be a leader. And you were both. You knew how to give without being asked and how to listen and understand.
This is why we miss you but you should know your seeds and school/education are present. With the same intensity that made us admire you, but not the administration that some confused with envy....
@SDRReynosa Can someone explain if the chapel (shrine) belonging to Comandante Metro 3 located in colonia Olmo is on private or public property? From what I understand, it's located right on the side of a plaza that is an avenue, and there is a police station on the other corner.
As far as I understand, this Cartel del Golfo chapel built with backing of the municipal government, should have some kind of permit, or something similar, right?
But oh we'll, look at the Metro 3 rooster that they placed right on the avenue and that no one, not even the military would remove. They, themselves ended up taking it, and placing it in the palenque. Even when they knew for whom, and the reason why it was there; a reminder to Reynosa and Tamaulipas that in our state, the authority (law) is organized crime
