A Police Chief and 7 civilians killed since the start of the week

One of the cilvilian victims from Acapulco, a local businessman

Reporter: Ezequiel Flores Contreras

The day of violence of this Monday has left no less than eight people dead in distinct points of Chilpancingo, five of those in Acapulco. Among the victims are the Chief of Public Security of San Marcos, Moises Castillo Lucena, who was killed along with his wife and driver, when the three of them were travelling aboard a van through the principal tourist area of the Port, the Costera Miguel Aleman Avenue.




According to official reports, the events registered on this morning in front of the Port Pier, in the centre of the town that is collapsing due to narco violence.

At roughly the same time, there was a body discovered riddled with bullets in the Adolfo Lopez Mateos Colonia, and later that morning another body discovered in the Luis Donaldo Colosio Colonia.

Meanwhile in the community of El Guayabo, in the town of Arcelia, three men aged around 50 were killed in the Zona Serrada of this region of the Tierra Caliente, where the violence never ceases.

The victims were present with signs of torture, they were identified as the brothers Ciro and Arnulfo Cerastegui Araujo and the third as Ubaldo Diaz, all originally from the adjacent community to the town of San Miguel Totolapan. (Otis: Milenio is reporting these three men were beheaded).



The incomparable wave of violence in Guerrero has left more than 200 violent homicides already this year.

Already almost as bad as January, during which the Secretariat for State Public Security registered 217 executions, the majority in the Port of Acapulco.

  1. The first line of this story should read "distinct parts of Guerrero", not Chilpancingo. It's a little misleading, even in the Proceso article, where "la entidad" must to refer to Guerrero, since none of the killings took place in Chilpancingo.

    1. Yeah, I sent in the same comment. "Entidad" in Mexico, when speaking of locations, always refers to a state. To be more exact, they're called "entidades federativas."

  2. No data on WHO were these perps?
    Later after we are all indignant we find they deserved all they got and had it coming...
    I ain't shedding any tears until you post more info, except for the "comandante" they deserve no tears at all...one tear for the wife IF she was pretty.
    -Acapulco has its atracadero = pier
    -el DF has its Atracomulco = Nido de ratas...

  3. "entitad" in the first paragraph means "state" of Guerrero. None were killed in Chilpancingo. The report is kinda confusing from Proceso, but it looks like they're calling San Marcos part of Acapulco, even though it's about 25 miles south. Plus two others in colonias. And three in Arcelia. You don't need to post this comment.

  4. Evreybody is a loser in the violence, but those affected the most are the children. Born into hoods where there are no prospects and hence no altenative to the gang.

    It is so easy for those privid fucks who grow up in a safe area with schooling, jobs and prospects at their footstep to dis and criticize those less fortunate who dont even know that life can be different!

    1. Maybe if Mexicans didn't embrace the narco life style so much, the kids would know that life can be better!

    2. I agree with you about 75%... the other 25% has to do with socially destructive factors, other than violence and poverty, that are harder to see directly.

      I will just mention three for starters:
      1. Culture of Corruption. This poison destroys people and communities in mostly indirect or invisible ways.
      2. Culture of Violence. Living "inside" the culture of violence has many social and psychological consequences that range from having nightmares, paranoid feelings, and sexual dysfunctions. It can influence such matters as where you shop, where you sit, and who to talk to or trust.
      3. Fatalism. Mainly, this is the poison of powerlessness and being controlled by greater mystical forces. Fatalism promotes feelings of "que sera sera" and overreliance on prayer to gods and saints instead of focused personal activism.

      Can you add other things that hurt Mexican families and youth? Just wing it. Whatever thoughts you post will be valuable.

      Gracias,

    3. Apathy. No one does anything (about the violence) because they have come to believe there is nothing that can be done. People try to go about their lives numb to what's going on around them.

      Problem is, with crazy criminal types, one can't go about ignoring things. Those types of sociopaths don't care who they hurt nor how crappy they make everyone's life. Ignoring what they do makes them bolder.

    5. Now ou can add addiction to that.It was a much different place even 10 years ago.Now that drugs have been unleashed on their own populations I don't think they realize what north of the border went through in the ghettos of the 70's and 80's added on to the other crimes down there.When I did many road trips down there there was always crimes of opportunity[read poverty]so was careful not to leave leather jackets draped over the motorbike's seat like I do in Canada but now I have to worry about who's an addict around the corner who will do ANYTHING for a fix and I mean anything with the impunity down there.It's only going to get worse.As if the people down there aren't victimized enough down there.There was always breakins but now going to be a lot worse.

  5. What will Mexico do once there is only one person left standing? Hmm no clue! Just a group of stupid people, not realizing what they are doing to their own country. Killing other drug traffickers and innocent people as well. Killing off humanity in their own country. Real smart!

    1. No one ever accused the cartels of being smart. If they were truly educated, they would understand that the border with the US is huge and there's enough room for everyone to get their drugs across and everyone profits!! It comes down to GREED!!!

    2. Those psychotic jefes aren't killing Mexicans because of greed or routes. It's because some other jefe turned on another jefe and there was a split. People in Mexico are being slaughtered because the boss of say (as an example) Arellano Felix is mad at the boss of Sinaloa.

    2. Battle fields are occupied by soldiers. Soldiers who are fighting for the benefit of their country and or to free their countrymen from oppression ... not some POS sociopaths that do nothing more than fvck their Country and their countrymen.

    3. We want to hear from soldiers that are not happy with the government they "serve" under orders of officers they know that have no military honor and no huevos...from any country.

    5. I am not a soldier, I was happy with my government, they were corrupt but we didn't know any better, we had not that many mass murders back then, and I served my military service, we about you @9:25?

  7. The 3 killed in the truck on the Costera, is directly in front of the Zocalo and Malecon in the heart of the tourist zone. Last week they gunned down a beach vendor right in day time on the beach in the heart of the tourist area as well. Given the amount of military and police on foot and in vehicles up and down the main areas, it's evident of Mexico's complete incompetence.

    2. 1:39 you blame "mexico" a lo pendejo, there are people in charge there, police and military by the thousands, with commanding officers that need to explain themselves, why are they so stupid?
      --The US program is a few deaths every day just to keep people terrorized, hoping against hope that the pinchi government will someday care...

    1. @Daily Reader. We appreciate readers giving us news tips. We really get some good stories that way. BUT when you post multiple links to basically the same story, especially one "that we already know this", it causes a lot more work for the moderators.
      the links look nice and neat here, but on our page where we moderate they are all run together. We have to check each link that is included in a comment to see that it is really what the reader represented it to be. I learned my lesson on that when I got in a hurry and had a whole bunch of comments to moderate and I didn't check a link. It was to a porn site.
      So, all I am saying is be judicious in including links in your comments.
      Thanks for all your good comments.

    2. Sorry, dd, I'll be careful with the links in the future. And I'll certainly warn you if a link is porno, but I don't see that happening. ; )

    3. O that's too funny DD[about the porn site].I'm sure many got an 'eyeful' and was probably appreciated by some.

  13. Not that the criminals really care about tourism.Corrupt municipals maybe not either cause they get their 'tax' either way and they aren't thinking about future tourism,they might not be around then.Think about it.Why would they care?Maybe the feds though for the 'legal tax' and if they don't go to Mazatlan or Acapulco the tourists will go to Cancun or Los Capos!

  14. Is it a coincidence that the place where...Many of mexicos killings happen is called guerrero?
