From the Sinaloa truce, to the empowerment of the CJNG

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from a Zetatijuana article

Subject Matter: Sinaloa Cartel, CJNG
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required

In the study of the project Justice in Mexico at the University of San Diego, the struggle between the CJNG and the Sinaloa Cartel has been analyzed, for control of the zones and routes for narco trafficking has led to a 20% increase in homicides in 2016. Augmented by the poor socio-economic conditions in Mexico and the heroin epidemic in the United States, investigators urge that the drugs problem is a problem of public health.


Reporter: Ines Garcia Ramos
The dispute for the territory controlled by Joaquin "El Chapo Guzman" against the CJNG in alliance with other organizations against the Sinaloa Cartel in different regions of Mexico, is one of the causes for the rise in homicides in the last few years.

David Shirk, Director of the program Justice in Mexico, spoke with Zeta about this and other announcements in the annual report "Violence and narco trafficking in Mexico", after his presentation in the University of San Diego.

Justice in Mexico started in 2001 as an investigative initiative to study the systems of justice in Mexico. Since then it has evolved into a study of public politics that could reduce the levels of crimes and violence.




The analysis carried out by Shirk with two investigators of the program, Octavio Rodriguez Ferreria and Kimberly Heinle, reviewed data bases corresponding to 2016 to explain the augmentation in crime levels and in particular homicides.

"We observed a substantive increase of almost 20% in homicides over the whole country, in areas linked to narco trafficking, for example, in Tijuana and the Pacific Coast.", detailed the Professor from the University of San Diego.

For the investigator, the second detention of "El Chapo", in January of 2016, fired up the level of violence, in the plazas that are controlled by narco traffickers, with disputes.

"There are reports that indicate that members of his cartel and that of the CJNG are starting to contest these spaces and routes for narco trafficking."

There the emphasis of the study is on the failed strategy that was started by the Mexican Government to debilitate the Cartels, to decapitate its principal leaders, as occurred with El Chapo, Osiel Cardenas and Benjamin Arellano Felix.
"The result was a grave conflict between different organizations intent on taking plazas, expressed Shirk from the Croc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego.

The prognostics of Shirk detected, in the data bases, interviews with functionaries, monitoring of newspapers, and the interchange of information with other organizations that" we believe that the wave of violence will continue until these criminal groups establish and equilibrium, or a monopoly or a pact."

The specialist included about public security in Mexico that, "we are not ruling out that an alliance between the Sinaloa Cartel and the CJNG, could implicate a significant reduction in the violence."

CJNG the new "Chapos"

In 2010, after the arrests of Benjamin Arellano Felix, Osiel Cardenas, Vincente Carrillo Fuentes and the execution of Arturo Beltran Leyva, the Sinaloa Cartel consolidated their criminal organization to obtain major control of narco trafficking operations in the whole of Mexico as well as the United States.

This, explains the study, provoked the violence that descended gradually in the period known as the Sinaloa truce, or the Sinaloa peace, this explains why Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez at the lowest levels of homicide between 2011 and 2014.

This stage doesn't only implicate a fortified position of the organization led by El Chapo Guzman and Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, but also its implicit pacts or explicit pacts with functionaries to continue control of its plazas.

However, with the first recapture of El Chapo Guzman, in February of 2014, there was an observed change in respect of the homicides in some zones of control, among them, Tijuana.

For the Doctor, David Shirk, the second detention of the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, occurred in January of 2016, after he fled from the maximum security "Altiplano" prison in 2015, as well as when he was transferred to the Ciudad Juarez prison, in May of 2016, debilitated the stature of the capo. This provoked strong confrontations in the Pacific Coast territories.

This was because after his arrest, members of the Sinaloa Cartel were able to ally themselves with the BLO and the CJNG. Although the CJNG is based in Jalisco, it has a presence in Baja California, Chihuahua, Colima, Michoacan, Guanajuato, Nayarit, Guerrero, Morelos, Veracruz and Mexico City.

The organization led by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho, details the study, will continue to consolidate in the future. Their alliances, for example, with the remnants of the CAF in Tijauana and the Juarez Cartel in Chihuahua, have demonstrated their capacity for strength and financing, which gives them the possibility to position themselves as the new "Chapos", says the expert.

The government is not controlling the violence

The report not only takes into account the dynamics of the black market and the strategies, but the actions and reactions of the cartels during their expansions and or defense of territories, as triggering the violence in Mexico.

In one of its sections, the researchers analyze the socio-economic factors that coincided in 2016, the second year in which the number of intentional homicides in the country rose.

These include the devaluation of the pesos, the stagnation of economic growth, the few job and educational opportunities, uncertainty and financial instability and the terrible levels of approval of the President of the Republic, Enrique Pena Nieto.

In 2016, the report indicates that the five states with the highest number of intentional homicides are Guerrero with 2,123, State of Mexico with 2053, Michoacan with 1887, Veracruz with 1258, and Colima with 1232. They were followed by Baja California with 1179 and Sinaloa with 1110 and Jalisco with 1500.

It highlights how that year, with 871 Felony homicides, Tijuana had the third highest number in the last ten years, with 871. While from January 1st to April 20th of 2017, there were 417 executions the highest number in the last ten years in this period.

In conclusion, the report stresses that " the effort to improve public security in Mexico is not accurate and simple, since even the reduction in violence seen in previous years ( 2012 - 2014 ) can not be directly attributed to compliance with the law."

As part of public policies to reduce violence, the program raises not only the training and professionalization of police corporations, but also work on accountability as the basis for the justice system.

The heroin epidemic and the legalization debate

According to the study, 591,000 people over the age of 12 acknowledged having used heroin in the United States during 2015, this triggered 12,990 deaths from overdoses of this drug.

The dramatic increase, the researchers explain, is related to two reasons. On the one hand, more doctors prescribe opiates to reduce pain in patients, and on the other hand, the production of heroin by cartels in Mexico.

Since these cartels do not have capacity in the production chains as broad as those of their predecessors in South America, " for a few organizations like the CJNG, it is much easier to enter the heroin market as Mexico cannot produce enough", says Shirk.


The solution, he says, is not to fight the Cartels from the Government, since with the large amounts of money in the hands of criminals like El Mayo and El Mencho, it is impossible to prevent Governmental collusion with narcos to provide them with protection.

"The key is to reduce the amount of money the organizations can generate, and the best way to do it is to stop using drugs in the United States or legalize them", he said.

Since the Merida initiative was strengthened in 2008, the United States has provided 2.6 billion dollars in support of public safety institutions in Mexico to combat drugs. However, the specialist says; "We have to have a conversation between Mexico, the United States and other countries that suffer from this endless war on drugs to identify a strategy that turns what has been treated as public security problem, as a problem of Public Health".

Seven of the 59 entities that make up the American Union have already legalized the use of marijuana, but Shirk indicates that this drug only makes up 20% of the drugs trafficked from Mexico.

For the researcher, the solution must cover other factors such as the conditions that lead to the consumption of these drugs, especially in the North and Centre of the Country, and appoint it as a public health policy.

We have to think of broader solutions than sending cops to stop people who sell drugs. It is now a solution too simplified as we have seen over the last 50 years, that it has not worked and how Mexico pays the price of the consumption of these drugs in the United States, Its just not fair.

  2. Interesting piece of reading.
    However I do believe the statistics are not accurate as to the spike in violence.
    However I do agree it's a failed strategy.
    Moreover the costs (2.6 billion dollars) for public safety institutions. Can someone explain what/ wher public safety institutions are and their purpose? It's an absurd cost to taxpayers for a program that is truly non- productive!
    Yes Americans like many world countries have a drug epidemic. I do agree a surge of opiates has led to a heroine crisis in America. However pharmaceutical companies are part to blame for what's transpiring in American societies.
    Moreover from further having read . It is clearly evident that Mexican government cannot control the violence which has plagued its country. Nor in my opinion; any intention of disengaging themselves from doing so. We are all aware of the corruption which has rooted itself within government.
    However I do agree with the concept of economic factors behind a part of the spike with crime. Inflation, a devaluation of the peso and employment are vivid signs for any country to experience such.
    In the end ; I find truth to the notion of legalization of narcotics. Since it's not defeatable and costly. Moreover, do not see Americans nor others from not consuming drugs in the future.
    Population control is a positive way to look at this.

    1. As far as the Mexican government not controlling the violence; keep in mind Mexico is taking on the most well funded and profitable industry in the world where groups will always fight to participate to supply US demand for drugs. Likewise the US hasnt stopped violence either, just controlled it. Drug violence has been pushed to certain areas of every town where locals buy their dope, and areas of cities like Chicago, Baltimore, St Louis, New Orleans, Cleveland, etc where dealers from other cities come to buy wholesale 24/7 in broad daylight, right out on the street with no fear of enforcement. Each of the afore cities have 3-4x the murder rate that Mexico has, and if figures where available for just East Saint Louis, north Philly, etc people would see violence happens at rates and with impunity that few realize. America has its "mini-Chapo's" that control real estate in major cities and as long as it's not in sight or of inconvenience to those that vote or have influence, and convenient for them to keep buying their dope; business will go on as it always has "across the tracks" and Mexico's citizens will bear the brunt of our convenience and demand for drugs.

    2. The problem with legalization is that it goes AGAINST the coporate interests of the US:
      - prison/police/security complex (which all has become rich thanks to the WoD)
      - pharma industry (since people get their prescription high and legal drugs would mean many would switch to cheaper now illegal drugs)

      Legalization is the only way to get out of the vicious corcle we are in (which several other countries has shown)

    1. Its not about not having pelotas like you said, if CJNG faces soldiers, CDS is like a walk in the park to them the way itss been in every cds plaza outside Sinaloa they fall like flies to CJNG, Cds went into zetas territory because CDS wantes the border cities, CJNG did the same took it to zetas because they wanted the port. CJNG does not enter sinaloa because sinaloa doesnt have anything new to offer Jalisco nothing that jalisco doesnt already have, They already control a border city multiple ports on both coast and plenty of sierra in Jalisco and Michoacan, so CDS can keep sinaloa

    2. And most meth comes from Michoacan,

    3. Mencho cooks up just as much or even more meth and heroin in the sierras of Michoacán, Guerrero, and Jalisco. There's no need for him to enter a state that doesn't border the United States. Just cause they don't have some gay ass name like el triangulo or some shit doesn't mean anything all those three states I've just named have been top dogs for opium and crystal production for years even before nacho coronel. Cuinis brothers got super rich without doing that so why change tactics now ? There drugs still reach the US operating from Guadalajara.

They don't have Veracruz on lock since literally every cartel has a presence there, we know they wouldn't step into nuevo leon or tamps since they dont have the balls or Juarez so where the fck are y'all getting this bs cjng controls everything.

  5. There will be supply as long as there is demand and the $13+ billion spent almost entirely with USA defense companies through both Plan Columbia and the Merida Initiative would have better served citizens if used to educate about risks of drug abuse and attacking demand.
    USA defense companies have enjoyed more than 30 years of gob subsidies on back of American taxpayers; sold as a war on drugs. It does not require a PhD to understand that the only way to hurt cartels long term is to reduce demand.

    1. Well mr.phd ......listen to what you are saying?! At this point in the game,all cartels in Mexico are a diversified criminal organisations. The drug revenues are slowly declining due to more plates in the game.at the same time ALL other sources of income are increasing.e.g,extorsions, kidnappings, murder for hire, ext. do you really think legalizing drugs will drop the crime rate in Mexico ? The answer is NO.

    2. Too much tax payers moneys have been spent for such programs already. Yet it has been non- effective. Only a costly burden as the result. If this business model were applied in any company it would definitely be the fall of such.
      Common sense in the business world would best suggest that it's not effective nor productive. A bust for its company!

      Delete
    3. I believe extortions , robberies , kidnappings ect. are the results of individuals ( gangs) to acquire financial resources for their own operational endeavors. Small bit time hooligans who wish to aspire a position of such by any means necessary. And such activities are rendered services for cartels to enhance their territorial dominance.
      True known cartels of such stature and magnitude never displayed such behavior. Moreover condoning such. Bribery and collaboration has always been policy.
      Not the reckless and senseless actions which has transpired now.
      Will admit the Zetas were the first to use and display such terrors to become what they are.
      This of course started a chain reaction of sorts for many following and discouraging others of the consequences.
      The result is a Tic- Tat form of behavior which continues to this day.
      Unfortunately this Tic for Tat has become a norm and an epidemic.
      Legalize the garbage already so maybe a bit tranquility can arise from this.

    4. @10:49 WRONG! The answer is YES. The crime organizatuons derive rhe bulk share of their profits from drugs. If you chop off 75-90% of their ability to bribe and corrupt you will have 75-90% less corruption of police, military, judges etc. etc.

    5. I agree to Disagree. The statement said "declining" drug sales.Never said anything else. Go to the optometrist and check your eyes. The point being is that legalizing drugs in Mexico will not stop cartels from creating crime to get revenue. It's already happening.There are too many players in the game.

    7. Kidnappings and levantones in plain daylight usually involve police officers, with military precision tactics, marinas, army, will pick up anyone with great authority, and often deliver their captives to gangs for safekeeping, revenge, torture, extortion, rape, white slavery, to prostitute, whatever, and that helps them get their "kickbacks" don't be ignorant, even the US had to contract blackwater to do their murdering, kidnapping torturing terrorism for them, because the US armed forces can't taint themselves like that, but their generas can give the contract.
      A young US lieutenant went to CentralAmerica and met a young US army lieutenant Colonel James Steele, who never got any more promotions because of his bad habits and military misconduct regarding human rights, yet, general Petraeus contracted private contractor Mr Steele to go and fack up the Iraqis as a private contractor, Blackwater owner Erik Prince had to sell his company because of the same reasons, prince still hangs around the middle east, in the Arabian world, setting up obscure operations for the United Arab Emirates, the russians, the Seichelles Islands, New York power centers, no doubt fixing to have some more billion dollar contracts to fight another war for profit, "for his 'beloved' US of A".

One said the drug profits are "chicken feed" compared to the profits made in illegally exporting the timber, gold and other precious metals they have acquired by extorting or taking over mining companies. Importing precursors to man made drugs also yields pretty good profits.

  15. There is a heroin epidemic. As a chronic pain sufferer I need to use a variety of those Big Pharma drugs just to function. I am extremely fortunate to have a doctor that is willing to work with me over YEARS now. We have together formulated a multi faceted anelgesic approach to my very complex situation and that is not enough to keep me pain free, but I stick to the program.
    A lot of people like me fall thru the cracks BECAUSE they can't get the proper treatment or find someone to take them on. Also I don't believe all these heroin users are legitimate pain patients, the same with medical marijuana users. Where I live everyone with a headache or a hangnail gets medí mari and I still have no clue what kind of pain that helps , it certainly doesn't help me altho I extract it and use it topically anyway.
    Pain meds have legitimate uses but docs have to be responsible too. It is not easy to exercise self control when you are hurting and many folks just turn to the easiest solution , including the bottle.........ah, it's part of the human condition.

  16. Hey Otis, thanks man.
    Nice graph at the top but I don't understand it. I get the big circles but what about all the individual colored sections, i.e. BC and southern BCS being dark red for example
    Are the dark red areas where the worst violence is occurring ?
    Thanks, I know you are busy.

    1. The red areas are the zones where there is the strongest conflict, yellow and white are more quiescent, hope this clears it up some.

    1. 5:24 lucky you, thre are more influential americans blaming US policies, banks, businessmen, american narco-politicians and their operators than unknown anonymous mexicans doing the same.
      There is also a little known Plan Puebla Panama and its sponsors bent on getting their way, due to gas and oil in the Chiapas state, also in guerrero and oaxaca, kind of making another country within the country, with their own laws and freedoms.

    4. Woth all the respect in the world, Don Otis, Protecting politicians, military, police officers or businessmen involved in drug trafficking doesn't help the people or the victims of their crimes, maybe you need to examine your priorities, it is not all because of little "billionaire" narquitos like la chapa or el mayate or their heirs.

    1. HSBC, CHASE, CITI, ALPHA, Goldman Sachs, Dow Jones, Deutsche Bank, and many others can lend the billions for the wall, as soon as the debt ceiling is lifted, if the congress wants money for their contributors to get their share from it later, they need to get in line, specially now that epn's government is bankrupt, out of credid and all facked up.

      Delete
    2. 6:45 I fully agree. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are using 14 Billion as a political ploy. Even if Chapo had that much money, I sure as hell wouldn't give one penny of it. For what????? So he could remain in maximum security. Hell to the no

  27. Mayo is allowing Mencho to weaken the good for nothing Chapitos. Once the Chapitos are weakened miserably then Mencho & CJNG will be finished by the government and army which is in Mayo's pocket.

    3. Of mayo is such a bad ass why did he make a truce with mencho in la paz? Why doesn't cds follow him and take orders from him? When he tried to fix the damaso and chapitos problem he got shot at instead.. lol Mencho is the man now give it up lol

  28. Th world is controlled by a select few powerful people. Those old farts probably know exactly how to end this war, and probably have known for a long time. I must say they haven't ended it because they don't want to.
