Riot in Monterrey Prison; First Reports say 50 Dead and 12 injured

Posted by DD republished from Milenio, with material from BBC, breaking news.com, and newser

INCLUDES UPDATES

In the early hours this morning shortly after midnight a riot broke out at the "infierno" ("hell") Penal del Topo Chico prison in Monterrey in the state of Nuevo  Leon.  The State Investigative Agency unoffically put the number of dead at 50 including guards and inmates.  Nuevo Leon Governor Rodriquez ("el Bronco") tweeted that there were at least 52 killed and 12 injured and said that no prisoners escaped.  
Conflicting reports say the riot started in a confrontation between prisoners of the Zeta cartel and a rival cartel.  Other reports are saying the riot was the result of an attempted massive escape attempt by some members of the Zetas.  

Milenio TV reported that a group of prisoners took over one of the pavilions of the prison and started a fire as a diversion to distract guards from an apparently unsuccessful escape attempt.

The violence prompted the mobilization of the army, Civil Force, and Monterrey police.  The Governor and Security Director both tweeted that the situation was under control by 1:30AM and that they would be a press conference this morning to provide more details.






 UPDate:
 This is a video capture of a news conference Governor Rodriquez gave a few minutes ago;  To see the press conference (in Spanish) press here;
Rodríguez said no firearms were used during the riot and no prisoners had escaped, or attempted to do so.
He said the fight was between rival factions, one of which was headed by Juan Pedro Salvador Zaldívar, known as Z-27, a member of the Los Zetas drug cartel.

By daylight a large crowd of families of inmates had gathered outside the prison gates trying to get information on family members who were inside. 
One woman shouted "there are women and children in there" apparently referring family members that had been inside on conjugal visits.  Governor "Bronco" tweeted that all the dead were males.
women visitors could be seen on a balcony from the street
Topo Chico is the oldest prison in Monterrey.  According to a BBC report Topo Chico prisoners suffer incarceration under horrible conditions;
  • Heavily overcrowded, with prisoners sleeping in the corridors
  • Cells have no water, light or ventilation, according to the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture
  • Female prisoners complain of being forced into sexual slavery by male inmates
  • Members of rival drug gangs Los Zetas and the Gulf cartel target each other
  • In 2011, Topo Chico's security chief was abducted, killed and his body dismembered
  • Previous escape attempts have involved digging tunnels and even a grenade attack from outside the prison walls
Governor Rodriquez appears to be responding rapidly to probably the biggest crisis his new administration has faced. “We are experiencing a tragedy due to the conditions present in the penitentiaries,” he said.

He promised personal attention for the families of the victims and said there would be human rights officials present during the investigation into the incident


 Milenio is reporting that several trucks were seen entering and leaving the prison that are transporting about 100 prisoners to the airport where they will be relocated to other prisons outside the state of Nuevo Leon.  

This incident is the latest in a series of deadly riots in recent years to hit the country’s overcrowded prisons, which often house inmates from different drug gangs.

In 2013, at least 13 people were killed and 65 injured in a prison riot, which was blamed on gang violence, in the central Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. 

In 2012, at least 44 inmates died in a  when members of the notorious Zetas drug cartel plotted with prison guards in an elaborate escape from the Apodaca prison in Monterrey. 
 he prison's director was later sacked.

In Sept. of 2012 more than 130 inmates escaped through a tunnel from a prison in Piedras Negras, Coahuila.

In December 2010, 153 inmates escaped from a prison in the northern city of Nuevo Laredo, right across Laredo, Texas.

The riot comes only a day before Pope Francis is scheduled to arrive for his first papal visit to Mexico. He plans to visit a notorious prison in Ciudad Juarez, once considered one of the most violent cities in the world, next week.

  3. El bronco rodriguez "survived several attempts" from los zetas...
    --i find that suspicious, I suspect this riot was to clean up enemies of los zetas, remember that monterrey is owned by el "hombre de Agualeguas" carlos salinas de gortari, and epn is best friends with el bronco what has done nothing against the former governor Rodrigo Medina who he was going to put en la carcel, por ratero y corrupto...

    7. Cuando iban a rescatar al Osiel, en la misión iba ir Lazca,Mamito, El Amarillo y otros altos Zetas originales. Iban ir a Cuba por unos helicópteros la misión era rescatar a Osiel Cárdenas el plan era ir a las instalaciones de la SEIDO y sacarlo de alli pero iban a ir más de 300 sicarios.

    8. By force 5:35. When it comes to prison breaks Zetas don't come lightly. They come hard and fast with the expectation that dozens of Zetas get freed. With Osiel's prison break the Z would have killed as many people as possible to free him. It would have been an escape for the ages if it was successful.

    3. The CDG are WEAK as an organization, they are now operating like a confederation. They are split up in various cells using the "CDG" name. They don't work together like they used to be, even Taliban people switched sides in Zacatecas. Because they knew Golfos are bunch of back stabbing bitches. They are even fighting against each other in Tamaulipas (there most important plaza).

  12. The over crowding would not happen if Mexico was not so corrupt and if there were well paid honest jobs. There is so much rampant crime that sooner or later things will blow over. You need money even to live okay in prison. Without money you have no basic human rights,

    1. Mexico is in one of it's best moments regarding to regular jobs (with social security), thugs are thugs. The US hosts the largest criminal population on earth 2'200,000 compared to Mexico's 238,000. You are right, you need money for anything (everywhere or ask the homeless in SF or SD), but that is another matter.

  13. Oh my gosh it's incredible. I have to be honest with you people, it honestly breaks my heart to know that 52 people got killed. I think it would be nice if at least 800 of the 3800 were killed, I think 52 it's a small number.

    3. This was a vengance from Zetas from Nuevo Laredo against Zetas that killed El Comandante Fresa early this year. Fresa was killed in El Topo by Zetas from Monterrey, most probably they where having an internal fight for the control of El Topo I don't really think it's going to spill the violence in the streets of Monterrey. It was more of a personal conflict between those 2 Reginald bosses of the Zetas.

  23. Awwww....some Z scum and other murderers, rapists and low life cartel members got killed in prison. GOOD!!! NO ONE should feel sorry for these guys. They were in prison because they wanted to be part of some cartel. They got what was coming to them because of the evil they brought to their society. This should happen more often in Mexican prisons to get rid of the cartel members. Let them kill each other. Even more pathetic that the families are crying over their loved ones that were part of this riot. These families should be ashamed to show their faces knowing their "loved" one was a member of the trash called Zetas or some other cartel. The gang members that survived should have to dig holes and just drop the bodies of their dead buddies in them. End of story!!
