Testimony of a Knights Templar Gunman

Note: Narration has been translated into English-note some paraphrasing is used for easier comprehension...Thank you to the reader who sent me the video..Paz, Chivis
Testimony of a Knights Templar Gunman 

“They never shoot from a short distance; they always shoot from a long distance and what they use is a potato thrower, bazooka or a 50 caliber. That is to open up paths to cross.
Narration:
This is the story of M3, until a few months ago; he was one of the youngest gunmen of the Knights Templar in La Aguililla and the region of Apatzingan. His thin, small body and his sharp facial  features make his appearance of less age. He is now 18 years old but his career in the crime world was started at childhood, he was 14. He enrolled on New Year when he was looking for work to help his brothers; he started from the bottom as halcon (hawk).
“When I was with them, I simply followed the military. I was placed in each spot to watch them”.
With his abilities, he climbed positions and got to meet the cupola of the criminal group. He provided safety to the chiefs of the Knights Templar. That is how we knew La Tuta, Chango Mendez, Quique Plancarte and also knew Nazario Gomez, aka “El Chayo” or “El Mas Loco”, which is said that is not dead, he had a face surgery and now is called Ernesto Villa Zapata.
“It is said that he is dead”

Were you able to see him?
“Yes, of course, he is alive but he changed his face, he is an old guy now.
How did you know it was him?
“Well, because when he gets down off the car, he yells and says, I am El Mas Loco. He gets down from the cars very hallucinating.
But M3 since a few months ago no longer  belongs to the Knights Templar. Before the Federal Police entered Aguililla, the base, shelter and cradle of the main leaders of the Knights Templar, he had exited already.
He always liked the weapons but he disliked the treatment by the criminals towards the people and that is why he decided to separate and now fights against them. When he realized that Federal Police had entered the community and Aguililla rose against the Knights Templar, he decided to go back and support their effort.
“We have been threatened but we are not afraid because we also know how they protect themselves (security), we know how they handle things. And if they are thinking of something, we look and think of doing something better than them.”
Since he was a child, M3 learned how to use an wide number of weapons and calibers
“The potato thrower is handle like this (showing on the video) that is how it is going to fall (referring to the bullet or whatever it is). You are going to get it like this and buff (noise) you throw it. And when it is shorter you lower it, because when you throw that thing it goes like this and then it falls.
No it is not used for airplanes, for the helicopters, they use the 50 caliber
Do you know how to use that?
Those yeah, you have to have it like this and you have to have your mouth open because if you don’t have it open it will burst your eardrums. It makes a loud noise at the time of the gunshot.
Now he knows that his head has a price.
“I don’t know if they are going to kill me but we will die fighting, defending the town, which is ours. Those bastards are not even native to this place.
He hopes that his life is a lesson to others, to those who think that joining with the criminal groups is the best thing to do to overcome being poor and solve problems.
Did you get other types of bonuses or other type of support?
No, nothing. Sometimes my family got ill, my mom would get ill and I would ask them to take her to a doctor and they wouldn’t support me.

    4. People believe and know that the Knights Templar were a bunch of meth head petty thieves & drug peddlars who have grown because of help given to them by Sinaloa Cartel. Because of Sinaloa Cartel Tuta and meth head gangbangers have grown into a Drug Cartel. Very soon Michoacan will become Sinaloa Cartel territory.

  8. Thank you for these translations. Translation tools at least give us non spanish speakers some understanding for text albeit sometimes shitty, but for the videos we have chivis. I do not know of any other blog or source that translates the videos. and nothing is better at giving insight into the people of the war, than hearing the words from their own mouths.

    1. Translation tools are only good for translating word by word. Any understandable text is bound to be quite crude and may be misleading. A good human translator is invaluable. It takes a human with cultural knowledge to properly translate between languages. I give praise to all of the hard work put forth by the BB contributors. It is a lot more work than you might think.

    An excellent article Madame Chivis... and thank you again for the translation. We (citizens living in the U.S.A.) will never have a grasp of the lives of these young sicarios. I can assume that the level of poverty is rampant in rural areas and these youngsters can't or unable to obtain a higher education. What choices do they really have? Trying to support their parents, siblings and bringing home enough food and providing shelter?

    I noticed that this youngster has a collection of "rings" - I wonder if these were collected from the "dead" or taken from innocent locals. I'm not being judgmental, just a curious observation. I also wonder if this youngster has a FaceBook account? And if he does have FB, does he follow the «narcissist sicario» movement as well, parading with high-powered weapons, telecommunication gadgets, money, large trucks/SUV...

  18. I lived in Apatzingan for quite a while not long ago and we used to sit outside my husband's cousin's house near downtown where we lived in the eve's as it was cooler outside and watch all the big trucks and 4 wheelers drive by kids and young men and women just cruising and acting like they were all great and we always wondered where these young kids got all the money for these trucks to cruise. There were bands on every corner everyone seemed to have money. Sometimes we saw large convoys of trucks driving from Uruapan area with guys standing in them all masked with guns they never stopped us or bothered us ever never had any problem with the military or anybody there either but my husband's Tia Rosa knows some big time older guys they are really quiet and don't say much but they have some kind of control in the town there maybe that's why we never got bothered and I'm a white girl my husband was born in Apatzingan. We want to go for a visit with our 3yr old daughter in October but not sure it is safe.

We were in Nogales, az for a wedding not long ago, and my cousin has a nice truck from the states of course.. we got stopped by cops and they asked us for some money or they would take the truck.. They didn't even tell us why we got pulled over , they just pointed they're guns at us.. The only reason they let us go because my uncle knew one of the cops..if the corrupt cops don't get you the lazy ass no good for nothing sicario will

  22. "I can assume that the level of poverty is rampant in rural areas and these youngsters can't or unable to obtain a higher education. What choices do they really have?" The cartels have over the years manipulated the entire system in Mexico to create the poverty that puts those young people in positions of despair. It has all been done by design, they run the government, thats why there is no death penalty and they do not have a 2nd amendment as the US has. Thats why the chupacabra has had a stranglehold on the education system for decades. They run the prisons and they have control of large parts of the military. Shit rolls downhill starting from the very top!

    Those poor people suffering at the hands of armed thugs in what is supposed to be a first world nation. Armed thugs roaming the backroads of Mexican states in pickups commiting atrocities. Where is the UN Naciones Unidos ?

    Has anyone checked how many helicopter
    crashes there has been since the war
