Guerrero: Shootout Between Community Police Groups Leaves 5 Dead




By: Vania Pigeonutt | Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

Five members of the Citizen Security and Justice System (SSyJC) of the Union of Peoples and Organizations of the State of Guerrero (UPOEG) were killed, three more were wounded and one was reported as missing after a shootout “clash” with members of the United Front for the Security and Development of the State of Guerrero (FUSDEG) in the community of Tlayolapa, Juan R Escudero.

The Attorney General of Guerrero, Xavier Olea Peláez, confirmed that “there was a confrontation between two community police groups.  My staff (belonging to the public prosecutor’s office) are already carrying out the proceedings at the location (Tlayolapa, 40 minutes away from the municipal seat of Juan R. Escudero).”

Although Olea stated that he had no confirmation about the casualties, Bruno Plácido Valerio, leader of the UPOEG, said via telephone that without giving details about the events, he confirmed that five police members of his organization died and one is missing.

In addition, there are three wounded that are receiving care in the basic hospital of Xalpatláhuac, located on the Costa Chica region of Guerrero, 30 minutes from Juan R. Escudero, where the UPOEG maintains their base of operations and where there is presence of FUSDEG in some parts of the communities.

Members of the public ministry, federal and state police, and members of the state ministerial police (PME) arrived at the scene.


Bruno Plácido did not say whether these events are related to the accusation from members of the FUSDEG that members of the UPOEG violently attempted to enter their communities, Villa Guerrero and San Juan del Reparo in Juan R. Escudero (Tierra Colorada) and El Ocotito, Chilpancingo.

Salvador Alanís, commander of the FUSDEG, explained that “members of the UPOEG want to disarm our police and enter in order to operate in El Ocotito and other communities.  Deivid Barrientos (commander of the UPOEG) wants to terrorize residents.”

Xavier Olea pointed out that in his particular point of view, “the community members are violating Law 701,” which recognizes indigenous peoples and gives them the ability to choose their own security system, as long as they operate in their communities and the weapons that they use do not belong to those that are for the exclusive use of the Mexican Army.

    3. I agree with you.
      And they have shootouts not only between police citizen groups, but also between one branch of the law and other (local vs federal police) etc.

    7. @9:00 - your response is a great response to a different post... The OP is simply stating that given the fact that Mexico has deployed its Army, the Marines, the police, the Federal Police, two community police organizations, and yet it is still absolutely and complete lawless. It's a true shame. To attack his very true and valid statement, is disingenuous. The replies only serve to artificicialy minimize the severity of the problem in Mexico. The issue is not if other countries have issues it's that MEXICO has this issue. If you have cancer, it doesn't matter if others have it, it matters that YOU have it. Mexico has stage 4 cancer and its prognosis isn't good. It needs to change how it lives or it will die from the inside out.

    8. Only Guerrero State in Mexico has had tens of thousands of soldiers and marinas and federal poolice, and 10 estatales per each, and so many civilian deaths every year, due to fights among "the local indians", maybe they know there is GOLD AND URANIUM all over the state and they are killing each other to get it and sell it to the Chinese or to George Soros, he has invested there and he likes his gold.

  3. Those are terror groups not law enforcement. They are in different countries as well so 6:22 pm is correct.

  4. you can tell which of these 'autodefensas' or 'defensas rurales' are actual for the citizens or in the pocket of the preferred 'grupo de gentes malo', by their arms. Single shot 22s and shotguns are from the people. I am surprised why this made news. In the past I have heard from a distance when a firefight at the edge of a town occurred. About 5-10 minutes, tattatat-tattat vs pow pow, and then all quite. Ni hospitals, ni gobberment. Fosas, si.

    1. Your post makes sense except that the autodefensas confiscate weapons as they do vehicles from the defeated narcos, which brings them better weaponry.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, "confiscates"/ usually the ones with the better weapons did not confiscate them from their poor broke ass victims who barely speak spanish, and sure do not speak German to bring HK weapons from germany for example, I understand there are really many other brands there...
      -!but not everybody has financing and sponsors.

  5. One only has to think who benefits from this mess. Pre-2006 Mexico had its problems but never like these. It's was more at the level of violence that exists in the US. Except for a few birder cities.

    1. 3:07 community policing lost the comandanta salgado, and the whole movement keeps stumbling, that is true, but have you seen El Pendejo Nacional (epn) falling from heaven?
      It has taken a lot, for years, but epn is the one who is really losing, and all the kings men ain't putting that güebón together
