From Tijuana to Ensenada, the waves of unrest in the organizations working in Baja manifest themselves as bodies and limbs dropped in the street. State police are attacked in Tijuana, and a severed head rolls down a road near the Guadelupe Valley in Ensenada. Bodies are mutilated, burned, and dropped in the street. One burned and one strang
led found in Tijuana on August 14th, three found around the city two days earlier. Two shot to death in Zona Rio, on August 17th.
Yesterday a body was found in a blue plastic co
ntainer, reminiscent of the days of El Teo and his murderous, taunting messages to El Inge.

The twisted alliances and paths of the cells are as mutilated as the bodies of their halcones, 'The Rs' are a cell of Jose 'El Tigre' Soto, who came up as a hand of Teodoro Simental Garcia, 'El Teo', headed by Javier Beltran E' Javi' Adrian Caberera.
They have been settling scores, murdering, and kidnapping for years, as 'El Tigre' rose from enforcer to trafficker, now sitting upon the DEA's most wanted list, with Alfonso Lira, 'El Atlante', Alfredo Azarte, 'Aquiles', 'and La Rana. The latest reports state Atlante, and Aquiles have been fighting for control to Tijuana, and Rosarito, despite pleas from Sinaloa hierarchy to calm the plaza.
Aquiles leaves banners demanding all the cells answer to him, and denouncing the cells of Tigre, claiming they extort and kidnap. Javier 'El Javi' Hernandez Beltran controls the R's, from San Diego, along with his half brother Isac Chavez Caberera, 'El Alio', who both answer to El Tigre, who remains in Mexicali. They are said to be responsible for hundreds of murders throughout the city, in their camp
aign to unseat their rivals.
