    I just returned home. I am trying to get full information on this no one has a complete story so I wrote to AD and asked.

    It is reported that Mireles group of CAM autodefensas met up with "falsos autodefensas" at a road block and the false ADs began shooting. In the balance there are 5 killed, 2 seriously injured and 10 arrested. It says the Mireles group handed the 10 over to federal forces when they arrived

    it happened around 5 or so, so I am trying to get verified information, no one knows what side the dead are from.

    Who is running all these guys, Polimenso , Paquito ,Hamburguesa,Lino, El Toro,Mellao,Josue,Panochitas,Tachas,Salinas,Josue ? All honoring M3 on banners,and now some fighting?Is CDG still cohesive or is it breaking apart into factions and even crews?Is there even a jefe over all now?This might be the reason they have started kidnapping and all the snide shit,because many of them haven't got the means to get the wholesale drug?They simply don't know the people the top bosses had before all the shit kicked off ?They got the infrastructure in place but nothing to move so they make money doing snide shit?Confusing as usual with CDG..
