Chivis Editorial:The apathy of Mexicans-Tutateca's new segment

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat
"I have a lot of people here, those who don't work with me,....I will fuck"   La Tuta
 

The newest star on Tuta TV is Juan Hernández Ramirez, PRI mayor of Aquilla, Michocán.  This is a different location than the previously released videos.

Two images were sent anonymously to the press, both appeared to be screenshot images, although no video accompanied  the images.

This is the fourth Michoacán mayor featured in wither videos or images with the man most commonly known as La Tuta, whose legal name is Servando Gómez, the premier leader of Los Caballeros Templarios.  

The other mayors who starred in a Tuta production were arrested and are in prison.

Recently, a video surfaced in which  Eliseo Caballero (journalist of  Televisa) and  José Luis Díaz (owner/director) of  Agencia Esquema news agency.

The men have insisted they had no choice but to cooperate with Tuta.  They report that Tuta began the first meeting with "I have a lot of people here, those who don't work with me,....I will fuck".

I think few will doubt that he may have said that.  But the argument that they were forced, is an overplayed, stock answer.  Each person in these meetings, gained something.  It went far beyond being forced into helping Tuta, it was a business arrangement.  A governorship, a seat in state government, a Municipal presidente seat, new cameras,  a new truck, or money, etc..  Give and take.  both sides criminals.

Forced is a 12 year old migrant child, kidnapped and imprisoned into the sex trade.

Few dare being a hero in Mexico, apathy is the norm.  Problems are for others to solve.  and therein lies the main reason, the true autodefensas,  had my respect and admiration.  They were willing to die to create a better Michoacán.  Fear entraps people and alters a society.

Would it be amazing if one reporter, politician, or  mover and shaker, would set Tuta up?

In the case of the Televisa and Esquema cowards, I have zero sympathy for them.  I hope they are arrested.  Seeing them ask for cameras and a truck, was stomach-turning.

When I see these videos, I feel defeated.  I feel I have wasted a decade of my life, and a chunk of money, spinning my wheels. 

I have worked side by side with those who stink to high heaven from corruption.   I have been betrayed by good people ,who have been conditioned to think that a certain amount of cheating is acceptable.

How can they not?  They are surrounded by corruption and crime being not only the norm, but perpetrated by those in fiduciary positions of power, complicit with criminals.  This directly impacts the thinking of Mexicans , to feel little responsibility or motivation,  to fight for and protect the good not only for themselves but for others.

Apathy, the greatest cheat of Mexican society.

Largely, the indifference towards the problems and issues of others.  Taking care of oneself, "my family, my house, my life".  A protective mechanism by those who have lost hope and feel helpless to cultivate change or demand better, so an acceptance forms,denialism forms. 

I don't regret my time in Mexico.  I was naive  when I landed and set up my offices.  and I knew zero of the cartel wars.  Proof is in picking a  "hot area" location, where two shootouts occurred outside my office.  I have been cheated and betrayed, by "good" people,  one expects to be robbed by criminals not people that know you are helping others without personal gain.  I can honestly say, it is the betrayal of those who portray themselves to be honorable people, that slams in to the heart and mind the hardest.

My best work has been in indigenous areas.  I have never encountered dishonesty helping the Zapatistas, or other indigenous groups.  We are partners on projects, I provide the materials for the schools, wells, electricity, they insist on doing all of the labor.  Another area of success,  has been working on projects directly, one on one,  with medically fragile, disabled children or poor children. Parents only want good for their child, they are not interested in ripping off my foundation.  If I had it to do over, I would only have projects, one on one, and with the indigenous peoples.

There have been times I have made a huge difference in the lives of special children.  My most incredible moment was funding the first cochlear implant (in Mexico) for a 3 year old deaf/blind child (at left).  I was in the room with the parents and doctors, when the implant was activated, a magnificent, emotional  indescribable experience. It was a cherished honor to be a part of the miracle.

She is 10 today.  She is happy,has  learned braille at my center, and learned to use a cane by one of my volunteers.

A second all time favorite case, was that of Lucia, when I met her she was 9.  At that time, she was one of 45 children in the world that had progeria, is is an ultra rare disorder.   It is a escalation  aging syndrome, which a child ages 7 years or so each year of life.  It  affects them both externally, and internally, heart, lungs, severe arthritis  etc.

They lose their hair, have stunted growth, appear to be elderly.  Lucia never grew past 2 feet and 14 pounds.

I was able to have her accepted into the only place treating progeria in the world, Boston Childrens Hospital.  Oh how she loved our trips to Boston. For Lucia, not having care for so many years, it was too late.  She died at the age of 13.  She is one of 12 children I have buried in Mexico.

But she was my most special child.  She was so strong, so forgiving of the stares and the bullying.  Much more so than I.  But that is another story, for another day.

I took the foto below just before our last trip to Boston about 5 mos before her death.  her hand is in that of my assistant.  Her bones were deformed by this time and she could no longer write or walk.

Corruption and apathy.  Mexico's grand cheaters.  Not narcos.  They are opportunists, and don't hide in a shroud of  pretense, as Tuta says, he is a criminal, he never hides from saying what he is. "Teaching wasn't satisfying".

It is all the others, the press, politicians, educators, people that should protect society, but greed intervenes.

And lets be clear, it is greed, that allows Tuta to reign, not fear.  Oh sure fear is an element that cannot be denied, but it begins with greed.  Tuta did not rise to power without first tapping into mans greed. Power came later.  I am speaking in terms of those in positions that have the expectation, they will help not harm, being true to society. 

I did not plan to make this into an editorial, and to step up on my soapbox.  But these videos have hit me in the gut like nothing before.  Being aware, and visual conformation  are two entirely different animals.

If I am asked if I have compassion or forgiveness for these people. 

My answer would be ...never.

  1. It really is quite simple to tag and bag Tuta. If the gobierno would invest in some high tech solutions. Quite a few strategically placed surreptitious webcams along with some GPS locaters would answer many of the questions the government hopefully has. The DEA does this routinely. All of this accomplished with out putting civil servants in harms way. After tracking for a month, pop up a drone for real time feedback and use the tried and true hammer and anvil approach. Adios, cucaracha. This really is childs play which makes one wonder about the governments true intentions.

  4. La Tuta has more lives than a cat. You have to hand it to Tuta, he is very resilient. Capos have come and gone, in some cases twice - Chapo and Chayo - and yet la Tuta is still running around wrecking
    havoc. The question I have is this. Will La Tuta and Broly, I'm sure he is one of the bodyguards that protect Tuta, go out guns blazing, or will they show cowardice and surrender peavefully once they are caught? They will probably be caught with their pants down. I will say this though. They will definitely exist the presence of Viagras. And I am talking about both Pfizer and the Sierra Santana brothers.

  5. La Tuta should send a image of Eric Holder. After all Holder was his straw buyer for guns and ammo.

  6. La Tuta you coward, your time and reign of terror is nearly over. Soon you will no longer be a problem as there won't be anything left to identify you with. You need a drone up your ass. You are nothing but a punk ass terrorist against your own people with your sick retarded visions and demented philosophy. What you need to do is cross the Mex/USA border and you would not last 2 steps on American soil.

  15. Tuta...Mr. big hat with no cattle. It is well documented that other legit big hats in Mexico with deep pockets and long arms have resorted to the use of mercs. I hear rumor that the Mexican government has now resorted to mercs in discreet areas and situations.

  16. You're tremendous Chivis. Resiliency in the face of adversity is the definition of character. Some people can not be bought, there's no amount that would allow our conciousness to not think about the blood spilled. It hurts my heart always reading about the death, corruption, and sadness of the state in which Mexico is in. If there's one thing i can say is that Good will prevail over evil. The good outnumber the bad. The evil fight for money, we fight for the right to live peacfully. Every morning i wake up i lay in bed wondering if today will be the day that the mexican citizens "awaken" and fight back. For that day will be glorious. Great job again Chivis. Much love.

  17. Chivis, the truth has always been there, but when you have all the money in the worl, you tend to think you are invincible and that you know everything, it happens to all of the best, even when you only know everything, yu can find yourself asking "father, why hath thou forsaken me?"
    What can we expect? Only to work at trying to make a difference, that is all the redeemers end up with, a conscience that we tried our best, it isour only
    chance at redemption, much more than asking the lord for forgiveness at the end of a life spent on the wrong side without honor.
    Asi que a chingarle, a trabajar, manana sera otro dia, no todos somos unos
    crooks, maybe develop a test to find out what people are up to before it's too late, see, la puta tuta is not the worst of our problems, it is the well armed mexican government and their gorillas, and a press full of sellouts asking for gimme gimme because it will be their only chance to support themselves...

  24. In 1906, the Flores Magon brothers started to send the monthly magazine Regeneracion into Mexico contributing greatly to the anti-Diaz dictatorship movement. This magazine denounced the great injustices happening in Mexico at that time,fueling a movement that developed into The Mexican Revolution and the overthrow of the Diaz dictatorship. Let's not forget our History and let's not desist of what is just. Chavis you are doing a great job with your independent editorials and with informing our people.
    You

    1. La Revolución Mexicana would have been better off not fought. It cost the lives of perhaps 1-2 million people and perhaps the migration of 1 million more Mexicanos. Like the current drug war the arms dealers were the real winners. Perhaps the potential industrialization of Mexico was the real reason for the war, and the attempt to stop that effort, and not democracy.

  25. The world should be aiming their missiles at Mexico, this country needs to be erased from the earth, there's no hope for this society, it should be wiped out and start again, by people who really deserve a spot in the planet.

  26. so.....only indigenous mexicans are trustworthy? Mexicans are responsible for their lot in life? it is there fault they are poor? it is their fault they live in such terrible conditions? The answer is yes. they should blame themselves for their situation they should blame themselves for not trying to change their situation. they should blame themselves for not destroying the system that crushes them ever so efficiently. every politician and their heirs should be killed but Mexicans are too nice too trusting too humanistic

  27. Ours is a beautiful country, but it has been taken over by men who have no respect for human rights or constitutional liberties. Our people are basically decent and caring, and our highest ideals are expressed in the Declaration of Independence, which says that all of us have an equal right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The history of our country .... is a striving, against corporate robber barons and war makers, to make those ideals a reality.

  33. 10:16 erase mexicans? Mexico for better people?
    Like what, white americans with college and university degrees on seasonal break? The depopulations plans are all over, if only in experimental phase...
    10:35 never miss a chance to blame the downthrodden for their problems, like if the black african american community were not so ignorant, full of stamps and obama phones and obamacare, they would not have fallen prey to the crack epidemic, no matter how many times the CIA invented and brought it home to them, no matter how cheap and available the CIA made it for them, the winners always write history their way, but nobody has to believe their lies, they are like rapists blaming their victims, never lacking reason.
    Besides the indians are only captivating the attentions of a world battling them, for them, or about them because they are being preyed upon once more, for their lands and animals, water, wood, minerals...like people fight for the children to steal their education and health benefits, even their school lunches are seen as bounty by the right since the days of david halberstam trickle down economics, to have more money for the reaganautas to spare on themselves, you spread your mental poison, we are aware of you, sucker...

    Well yes, even my volunteer work I take very seriously.

  36. There are not enough of you in this world Chivis. I have written before, which was my first and this will most likely be last because I am here to read and learn. However, your editorial struck me.

    It's unfortunate that Tuta has brought worst in Mexico to the forefront, but it's even more unfortunate that nothing has been done when it is so clear the powers that be know of his whereabouts. I know that the United States gets a lot of flak on this website, but let's all be clear about something, if a criminal kingpin was being interviewed, having recorded meetings with mayors, etc. here in the States he would have been caught and caged a long time ago.

    And that is the fundamental issue, that does NOT happen in Mexico. Why? I think that is the question that needs to be answered before any Mexican can truly move forward. Because if that question is not answered than all you have succeeded in doing is going in circles and doing nothing but repeating the past.

    You are in my prayers Chivis.

  38. Hey chivis; i want you to know, I was always curious to know your take on this particular situation knowing you have spent time in Mexico actually making a difference. You posted that and for that, I thank you. Rest assured not all who read on here are idiotic smart asses with that bullshit sophomoric rhetoric... Be safe.
