We will kill ten narcos for every innocent civilian killed, say the auto defensas of Tamaulipas
Nuevo Laredo Tamps.
Translated for Borderland Beat from a Proceso article by Otis B Fly-Wheel
A group of Auto Defensas of the frontier city of Matamoros threaten to kill 10 members of organised crime for every innocent civilian that is killed by any group identified with the Cartel del Golfo.
The proclamation appeared hours before a corpse appeared executed with a coup de grace in the San Angel Colonia on the outskirts of Matamoros this past 19th of March.
They were warned in advance, first the Commanders, then the pointers and the hawks, all of the people that work for Angel Prado Rodriguez alias "El Orejon" or Ciclon 7 are to be assassinated, the town of Matamoros requires your blood, while you have bathed in the blood of the innocent, continue killing good people Angel Prado, and we will kill ten of yours for every innocent. Indicated the text that started to circulate on social networks that are against the violence in the frontier of Tamaulipas
The supposed group of auto defensas say these have assassinated two men of Ciclone 7 identified as "Memo" and "Bogar".
United Auto Denfensas of Matamoros we go for you , already we located you in your armoured blue suburban, nor the PFP who will join the unemployed bitch, the town of Matamoros requires your death, and with those who are close we are negotiating the price, concludes the text.
Until now the only group of Auto Defensas that are operating in Tamaulipas is the armed column of Pedro J Mendez that appeared in the rural Municipality of Hidalgo.
The column was associated with a faction of the CDG " Zeta Cleaners", and its three years since they stopped extorting, kidnapping and committing other crimes in Central Hidalgo, but they continue in surrounding area.
