Youths abducted off buses and forced into narco recruitment

Borderland Beat

In broad daylight and while a bus driver was changing a tire on the busy stretch known as the "Y" in San Fernando, Tamaulipas, gunmen entered the bus  and took six young men.

Cartel commandos are recruiting, forcibly and with impunity, abducting young passengers on highways in Tamaulipas, despite the federal surveillance in the state.  A witness described Thursday an experience he  lived that through about three weeks ago. 

"We left  around 17:00 hours in a Transpaís bus”, related the man, who requested anonymity. 

"We had left Victoria (towards Matamoros), but stopped because one of the wheels became disabled, and the bus slid off the road."  While the driver exited the bus change the tire,  said the witness, the driver of a  late model truck, came and offered help in a friendly manner, but was told help was not needed. 

About 5 or 10 minutes passed, and the man returned in the truck, but now was accompanied by two pickups and at least 10 armed men in plain clothes. 

On the bus the witness estimated there were about 20 passengers, mostly men. "Two armed men boarded the bus and asked six male youths to get off the bus. Women were ordered to stay in their places and that failure to obey would result in consequences, so they all stayed in their seats.”

“The youths who were taken off the truck obeyed orders and did not resist”, he described. 

"Through the window, I was able to see that the boy’s faces were covered with their own shirts, the commando put them into separate groups and then they shoved them into the trucks.” he said. 

Overall, the intrusion of the commando, who was unknown, lasted only about 10 minutes.
Immediately, he added, the bus operator, who had no interaction with criminals, finished changing the tire and the truck kept going. "Nobody said anything," he said. "We were all terrified and speechless by what we had just experienced." 

Reforma published yesterday that the coordinator of federal police In Tamaulipas, Norberto Luis Montoya, revealed that these recent assaults are actually actions involuntary recruitment by cartels. 

They attribute forced recruiting in Tamaulipas, is  due to infighting in criminal organizations and the battle between the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel, said the recruitment National Anti-kidnapping Coordinator, Renato Sales Heredia.

  2. This is very reminiscent of the 2011 San Fernando massacre (even in the same area), except that now that Z40 is not in charge, they just recruit instead of making the passengers fight each other to the death.

  3. Hope those who were forcibly recruited shot those cartel members the first opportunity they got once armed.

  4. They will force them to kill each other and those left will join them or they'll kill innocent people and hold that against them. And sometimes they handcuff them to the wheel and make them drive. They are left to die when everyone leaves the car. And law enforcement kills them. And sometimes they make them load ammo into clips , while they battle it out. And a bunch of other uses they have for them. It's modern day slavery. Narco-esclavos they feed them nothing but tostadas and water. When they punish their bosses they'll keep them in a kennel for months and feed them a fistful of dog kibble so they don't poop a lot.
    That's the narco lifestyle of today. It's certainly nothing to be proud of.

    NO, NO, NO this isn't the reason. The real reason is more Ominous is just my opinion. Hint: Mexicans have hardly been known to come up with original ideas most are copy cats. I'll let you figure it out, hopefully I'm wrong.

  8. the 72 migrants killed in Tamaulipas after refusing to work for zetas. I have always wondered if any said yes just to buy time, but couldn't follow through with killing the others. the survivor said they would not give information about their relatives.

    1. It was the mexican army that murdered the 72 imigrants. The zetas just got the blame for it.

  17. The guilty always pointing fingers away from themselves, manuel cavazos lerma, el chamuco mayor de tamaulipas, is to be blamed, he started all this rigmarole, and now enjoys the glories of living in la capital as a federal senator in charge of making look legal the rape of pemex and the mexicans and pena nieto's pretty boy...

  18. Nazi Germany? Is that why every Ex Mexican president and politician, except Fox retires in the USA? You would think with all the beautiful beaches and beautiful mountains they would stay in Mexico. They used Mexico to steal the money and then retire where they can rub shoulders with Americans and live the good life, and safely. The president here in Mexico just bought a 7 million dollar jet. He said it was for official use. I believe his wife just used it to go on an expensive shopping spree in Paris. While I am driving around the main roads here in Chihuahua City dodging giant pot holes.

  20. 9:53 it would be "logical" to post the time you are answering to troll around, now we don't know what your problem is, or wi who...
    8:30 z40 said he did not order that massacr in tamaulipas, and tat the boys got carried away, but that he himself killed those guys who ficked up there, so much for your LATE excuse of a blaming the army; tearing down people's houses seems to be one of the favorite tactics of z40, like he did in the coahuila massacre and to the house of el taliban z50 in fresnillo zac, tear down the house...

      Adding the time stamp is not a matter of logic, practical for those who are not on a cell phone. If you're implying I committed a fallacy please name it.
