In Mexico Violence and Death do not take a Christmas Holiday

Posted by DD, material from The Guardian, El Diario de Coahuila, and PanAmPost




 Mexico’s plague of drug-gang related violent death showed no sign of let-up on Christmas Day –
 
In the western state of Michoacan six severed human heads were found about 8:30 AM   in Jiquilpan, a municipality near the state of Jalisco – a region that has become a battleground for competing drug gangs in recent years.

Officials in the Attorney General’s Office said that the crime was most likely carried out by organized crime cells operating in the area.  According to José Martín Godoy Castro, the Attorney General of Michoacan, "criminal activity in the Sahuayo-Jiquilpan geographical area is due to the fact that there is no predominance of a delinquent group, but rather a dispute between several who seek territorial control ".

The six men are yet to be identified and their bodies have not been found.   The heads were transferred to the Forensic Medical Service for analysis.

More news on these deaths should be forthcoming shortly as 5 suspects in the murder and decapitations were arrested last night (Dec. 26).  The arrests were made as part of the investigation of the severed heads when "an abundance of Federal Ministerial Police went neighboring municipality of  Sahuayo.  

As they passed through Isabel la Catolica street in the Popular colony, they detected a white Nissan van and a red motorcycle, and when they approached they were attacked by firearms by the occupants of a nearby building.   As reported in El Diario de Coahuila;

"Faced with the refusal of the aggressors to stop the shooting, the officers entered the site and subdied five people, two women and three men.

"Inside the truck were found two knives with blood stains, so they were packed for expert analysis in order to determine their correspondence with the events recorded on Christmas day  in Jiquilpan".  .

Also confiscated from the detainees at the site were  two AK 47 rifles, caliber 7.62; An AR-15 gun, .223 caliber; Three short weapons (two 9 mm caliber and one .38 Special), plus a .22 caliber weapon,  and garments with blood stains.

OTHER CHRISTMAS DAY ATROCITIES

In another two separate incidents, also on Christmas but in other regions, a total of 16 people were killed in gun-related violence presumed to have been motivated by drug-related violence.

Of the 16, seven people were massacred  as they gathered to celebrate Christmas in the municipality of Atoyac de Alvarez, in the southern state of Guerrero. The victims included five men from the same family, as gunmen enter the house where the victims were gearing up to celebrate Christmas.  Three brothers, their father and their uncle were shot dead according, to AP. A married couple who had been invited to lunch with the family were also killed.

Out of the seven that were killed, two were municipal police officers and one a state police officer, according to state security spokesman Roberto Alvarez Heredia. Preliminary investigations suggest that the gunmen were motivated by revenge and had attempted to target only one individual but eventually ended up killing bystanders.

In Chihuahua state, authorities said nine people were killed during Christmas Day violence, according to AFP. Five of those were in Ciudad Juarez, including three women who showed signs of having been tortured.

While much of Mexico’s drug violence goes unreported, official data say more than 170,000 people have been killed and 28,000 reported missing since 2006.

    1. I am not sure shootings should be compared to beheadings. Those are two different classes of killing. Also we can't compare killings Mex vs US. We know there was 18 dead in Chicago. We don't know how many were killed on Christmas in Mexico.

    2. in chicago, the NRA saved the 2nd ammendment, but not the well regulated militia, laws were made to eliminate the risk for gun dealers, nobody can sue them, no matter what, they own their legislators, add to that the real estate moguls, they are the ones who always benefit from the killings, drug trafficking, guns, gangs and hos when they build in the beautiful chicago areas they depopulate of poor broke ass people...
      ...minorities whose lives JUST DON'T MATTER, REALLY...

  7. I keep reading about mexico and how bad it is . Then I read 40 people shot and 11 dead in the city of Chicago over Christmas weekend . The consciences around the usa and by the people who enforce the law blame it on politicians . The people on the front lines KNOW WHY . President Obama thus far goes down in history as the worse. These are his people in Chicago . Everybody knows it is a major distribution point for the Mexican cartels . Will they ever oust the corrupt politicians in Chicago ? The Obama cronies should be shook lose before long .
    This is a many front war . Some want to blame the demand of the us as the cause . Then others want to blame the supply by Mexico as the cause . I say we fight it on both ends , supply and demand , always exposing corruption and deficiencies on both sides . This shit about getting caught with a 18 wheeler loaded with drugs and getting a 10 year sentence ? Why the hell don't everybody do that ? Shit you can make big bucks and if you get caught be home in a few months . Shit junkies get more time than that.

  11. Five people killed in Juarez also on Christmas day. Looks like the cleansing of the city did begin as told by a CDJ memeber and mentioned in an article here a while back. It is not death however that does not rest it is GREED. Death continues all over the world though in places like Allepo and throughout the middleast as well as the U.S. like in Chicago and Memphis and such. It is a sad but unfortunate act.

    1. Again, I can't believe CJNG has any special forces. Special forces with middle school or less education doesn't make sense.

    2. Cjng has like th other cartels, former special forces, and government propagandistas, and suppliers of computer controlled machines with programs to make their own weapons, supplied, no doubt by the mexican army military industries, that single lonely fact proves to you that they are all in cahoots...of course, former military specialists have an uphill battle if they come face to face with any real current active military unless they get planted real nice...
