Guerrero: Police ignore calls for help as 50 sicarios terrorize town

Javier for Borderland Beat material posted on Mx News Daily from Universal and El Sur


It was a night of terror for a small town (330 inhabitants) in Guerrero this week when at least 40 armed men kidnapped seven people, peppered homes with machine gun fire and robbed some residents of cash and belongings.

The attack on Chacotla began at about 10:30pm and wound up some five hours later and despite calls to 911, municipal and state police offices and the Army, authorities didn’t turn up until the following day. The town of is located 40 minutes from the state capital of Chilpancingo.

On Wednesday, five of the kidnap victims were found dead.

Upon their arrival in the town the gang blocked the main road before seeking two people in particular: sons of Gabriel González, also known as El Tigre, a 42-year-old man who no longer lives in the community.

The gunmen took González’ sons, aged 21 and 16, along with their mother before nabbing two of González’ nephews, 22 and 17, from their grandparents’ home.


A third man managed to escape with his daughter before the gangsters arrived at his home but his wife instead became the sixth kidnap victim. The seventh was taken from the neighboring town of Mazatlán as the criminals fled. ( click on image to enlarge)

Residents say they heard several of the armed men identifying themselves as members of the Union of the People and Organizations of Guerrero (UPOEG) community police but that organization later denied any involvement.

Other names were also mentioned: that of Isaac Navarrete, leader of the Sierra cartel, and Celso Ortega, chief of Los Ardillos.

Later Tuesday morning the kidnappers contacted the victims’ relatives, demanding ransoms that totaled 1.5 million pesos, about US $74,000. The amount was later reduced to 1 million but the families, all farmers, were unable to raise the money.

Early Wednesday morning, the two kidnapped women returned to their homes after being left on the shoulder of a road and walking for about two hours.

The fate of the five men was known an hour later: their bodies had been left by the side of the nearby road between the communities of Mazatlán,  El Salado, and   Lagunillas, each with two shots to the head.
The gang wasn’t done harassing Chacotla residents. During funeral services for the five executed men on Wednesday evening relatives received phone calls, allegedly from the kidnappers, threatening them with further violence and kidnapping.

Few people attended the burials as fear and apprehension prevailed in the community. Police presence in the town had been sporadic throughout the week so the bereaved residents asked authorities for protection during the funeral services and burials, but their request went unanswered.

Now, the people of Chacotla are not happy with the performance of federal, state and local authorities.

“This cannot be, we’re at the mercy of these criminal groups and the government has abandoned its responsibility of at least guaranteeing our right to live,” said one.

Late Wednesday evening, eight trucks carrying Federal Police officers turned up, set up a checkpoint at the entrance to the town and began patrols.

  1. Read this few days back. Poor residents with no assistance from police whatsoever. They knew what was transpiring but ignorance permitted them to do otherwise. Just there to receive a check with minimum effort to perform duties. Fire all these guys and see what check they will receive now. Useless piece of shits.
    Citizens arm yourselves and protect your loved ones . Will not be judged upon for taking out the garbage. Fight and may God give you the strength to do what's necessary. Since the municipal officials will not. My condescense and Blessings.

  2. Awful Just curious - why demand such a high amount of ransom, knowing the family can't pay? Is this done to just torment them further? Seems if they really want money, they would lower it to something realistic. Horrible that the police did not help.

    1. Kidnappings and ransoms are now businesses and industries. Insurance companies insure for it, and there are now "licensiados" whose job is to negotiate and work as an intermediary. Example: if they want 75,000 they will ask for 100,000. Because of they demand 75,000 people will counter offer 50,000.

  6. Yup....and the people are powerless. This is just a glimpse of what is to be around the world. Total police states where paramilitary death squads are allowed to commit these sort of atrocities to benefit the interests of the powerful. Mexico is the laboratory of our future, dont think this could not happen to any of us. Its only a question of time when it it will befall us and maybe you wont experience it but your children will. I hope this doesnt become true.... but its already happening

  7. One armed man in the States causes an army of 20 or more SWAT team members plus the same amount of police to show up at the scene. How many police would the U.S. authorities need to silence these same amount of armed men here in the states??? It's not as easy as it looks specially in a small towns where even the closest military base is miles away. The U.S. has at least the option of sending in helicopters with troops but even then to silince so many armed men there needs to be a thought out battle plan before making a real move on them. Think about it.

    1. most small rural American towns/Farmer type will have a small Police or sheriff department, and the majority of its population while have equal firepower.. BTW the Military cant be used to control crime(that pesky Constitution prohibits it..the same one letting those farmer above have ARs and AKs.)..The other aspect is try getting 40 guys together with a "secret" plan, and see how long it takes the FBI to be bitch slapping them, after one flips for a couple million $. we aren't Mexico..dww

    2. What a stupid comparison. In the usa they wld sent the national guard when shit gets real bad.

    3. @1:43 STFU. My point is that in Mexico they don't have the option most of the times to send in troops, National Guard or anything. The comparison is very true.

    4. @5:44 p.m here in north ga mtns we shoot back and ask questions later and alot of us have the same kinds of weapons they do believe that!:)

    5. @10:30. In Mexico it is illegal for the majority of the population to own personal guns FYI. So how can people other than criminals protect themselves? I'm not saying that getting a group of 40 or more people together is easy in the states either. All I'm saying is that if it where possible how would that effect the numbers of police responding to these threats?
      To make it clear also is that police in the states have to outnumber criminals encountered during a call by larger mumbers than them by a long shot. Numbers that small towns like those in Mexico they will not have.

    6. There is a big difference here in the US, we are armed. If the 300 people were armed it would of been a game changer.

      Delete
    7. @11:28 Simply arming the people will not be a game changer. It's not enough to simply give the populace guns or allow them to own them, if the people are not organized and united it is still 50 sicarios against 1. If the people are organized and united and act in concert, it is 300 armed citizens against 50 sicarios. That is a game changer.

      That's not correct. The correct military tactic is a double tap to the upper body and one to the head. It's pretty standard training in close quarter combat traing which was once only taught in special forces but is now being taught in regular infantry.

    5. Sol, did you read the article? The men were kidnapped. Meaning they were taken alive and later killed with two shots to the head. The double tap usually happens in indoor close quarter operations and is to the upper torso and one to the head. You sound stupid pretending to be a soldier.

    8. The reason why is because Sinaloa's money was from sending drugs to the states.... While other organized crime groups like the CT and Z's had a large number of their revenue come from extortions and kidnappings, hence the level of violence on the populace. It wasn't that Sinaloa was not made of homicidal maniacs because it is, it has to do with structure.

  14. Too little to late for the Mexican federal police to patrol or to establish roadblocks. Another example of the pervasive corruption that exists throughout Mexico's supposed law enforcement entity's and military. Yet, Mexico's government, led by the midget occupying Los Pinos, refuses to allow the citizenry to arm themselves, a right afforded to every Mexican citizen under their constitution. The PRI is so concerned that its' citizens would band together and start a revolution if they were armed that they prefer astronomical crime rates. Given the economy, the falling value of the peso against the dollar, Trump's plans to deport up to 8 million undocumented aliens from the U. S., and the continued rising rates of insecurity, it's only a matter of time before we see rising levels of civil discord within Mexico.

Mexican officials deny Trump ever made that threat. Whether he did or not, that is a long way from a promise to send troops to Mexico.

  19. It appears that Mexico is falling into anarchy. The old model of a central government run in a mafia style and managing the various large cartels is breaking down. As the government has fractured politically and so has the various cartels. There are now too many small scale gangs, each with their own deals with various corrupt fragmented governmental forces and institutions to allow for central management anymore. This is leading to the lack of basic security to large areas of Mexico. The leaders of the government while corrupt are not stupid and they truly fear a revolution or an internal civil war. They are more scared of the citizens arming and rising up than the general carnage the cartels and gangs are inflicting on the population. Besides the cartels are a revenue stream while the people are rivals for power and represent the true threat to the politicians.
