Morelos Mayor Video-Tapes Himself Being Extorted by Los Rojos

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from Zocolo

Jorge Toledo Bustamante
Alcalde of the Municipality of Mazatepec, Morelos
Date: Aug 21, 2017


A video shows the moment when suspected members of the Mexican cartel "Los Rojos" forced the mayor of the municipality of Mazatepec, Morelos, Jorge Toledo Bustamante, to commit to the delivery of 5 million pesos ($ 270,000 USD) as payment for piso, aka right to the plaza. 

They also demanded the official to hire a person "who knows what he is doing" to be a liaison between the criminal group and the municipal administration. 

Toledo basically refuses to pay and even ensures that he will give up his position first. He explains that he was forced to reduce his salary in half because in the municipality there is no money, so he asks his interlocutor, to tell his "boss" that he wants to talk to him.

"Remind your boss that I treated him well when he was in detention, when I was the  prison director between 2006-2012 and that I gave him access to all facilities", said the mayor to the criminals. "Tell him that even this time I went to talk to his father. I want to talk to him again. I had asked to pay only 5,000 Pesos." Toledo Bustamante repeated. 

During the conversation, the representative of the criminal group realizes that in the front pocket of his pants, the mayor has a cell phone. When he takes it off of Bustamante and sees the messages, he begins to insult him. "Trying to tie me to this ? Get down on the ground. Get down to the ground right now, because I'll fuck you right now, eh?" 

Bustamante was then forced to lie down because apparently he was indeed recording the conversation. The video was leaked through Facebook and then began to spread by other social networks such as Twitter. 

Once  he had submitted, the mayor accepts the conditions of the criminal group: "We will cooperate on  what I can make possible, but you communicate with him." 

"Are you saying it honestly? Are you saying it honestly? Because if you cheat us you will not get the money to bury any of  your family or  your family tree," the Los Rojos narcos tell him. 

Finally, the municipal president assures him that "he will do what he can," but insists on talking to the criminal boss.

"He's called you several times and you have not answered," the narco  warns. "I've been very busy,"  says Bustamante. "Don't screw with me, busy? It wasn't going to take you five minutes, what a sorry excuse," says the envoy in a threatening tone. 

"Look, Toledo, the man considers you a friend, he does consider you a friend, and he respects you because you give your word. However, if you are going to walk with the government, and you will not support us, you will not even get  the five million pesos you are asking to bury all your family," threatens the masked man.




In Mexico, mayors are continuously victims of extortion and attacks by organized crime.

The National Association of Mayors (ANAC) reported that between 2006 and August 2016, 36 former mayors, 7 elected mayors and 43 deputies were killed, a total of 86. 

Los Rojos is one of the leading criminal groups operating in the State of Guerrero, and more recently in Morelos. They are disputing territories with other local drug cartels in the region. 

So far, the mayor has not made any statement regarding the video.

However, as of one hour ago the FGE, Fiscalia General of the State, Perez Duron says he will open an immediate investigation into the case. He invites citizen participation, public servants and all authorities to present any and all denouncements if they have been intimidated or victimized by similar actions.

  1. Just a bullshit attempt to keep the Mexican and any American authorities off him. However, he implicated himself and his position as prison director to collude and work with the cartels for a minimum then of 6 years. The gangster even acknowledges the friendship between the cartel leader and Toledo. Even payments and the access to everything in the prison. GUILTY SONOVABITCH is now caught between the folds. The law and the killers.

    1. Totally agree.
      This individual had associations with this cartel. Acknowledging special treatment and favors in past.
      Why would this individual think he would not be subjected to payments. Once again, those who step into the lions den are there to stay.

    2. I am with you on this one. One way in one way out. You play with fire you will get burned. Live by the sword then you shall die by the sword. From one favor is a lifetime of debt. Toledo is GUILTY as charged with his association and actions with the criminals.

  3. Predators feed until the source dries up or until they are exterminated . PREDITOR CONTROL is what it will take . Kill them out to a level that common law enforcement can be done better . Hunt these parasites out and get then down to a less bold and more tolerable level . It can be done but all stops will have to be pulled . If its done there will be many crying mothers and many crying foul . All I can say is mommas , teach your children better .

      Based on the video he has most likely already been eliminated.

    4. Pendejo.... huaraches de tres puntas is what every poor campesino wears in that area.... it's an honor to wear that huarache I have some myself and I don't feel less of a person. Huaraches de llanta, True Religion jeans, and Ed Hardy shirt, and icing on the cake a cowboy hat, sombrero... and I am one proud American, law abiding, God fearing, by the way he wore huaraches as well..... by the way I am a minority in this country and I do not support the taking down of confederate statutes, as that was part of the American Revolution,...

    11. There is a difference between acknowledging history and celebrating it. Im not into celebrating people that advocated slavery. History is just the past. Just because it ocurred doesnt mean we need a monument. Common sense

    The mayor may have recording the conversation with his phone, but the video is being made by someone else, obviously. Here's a longer better reproduced version. You can see a female at the beginning. And for those commenting that it's now reversed, with govt. officials paying the narcos, you're 100% correct. Part of the new narco model, where they prey on the local population more than sell dope to US:

  18. Unfortunately, this is an epidemic which has been taking place for some time in Mexico.
    Bandits and criminal gangs just running amok.
    Love to see the day when citizens take back their country from such unwanted individuals.
    To restore law and order and respect.
    And persecute those corrupt individuals for a peaceful and prosperous society.
    We are all aware of the dangers many face living in Mexico. Choices of life and death are frequent. While many choose to comply with such extorting tactics by criminals due to the lack of law enforcement. Moreover, the impunity and corruption of investigations and officials.

  19. He has been compliant and working with the narcos since at least 2006 (11 years) probably well before that so he is as guilty as the leaders and hitmen. He is a coward trying to save his life and maybe expects some sort of protection. LOL 5 minutes to late. Lock the scum mayor up with the rest and let them kill each other.

    1. 9:03 these are the consequences of listening to the american foreign policies that dictate client countries must take usurious loans from IMF and other lenders until there is no money left for essentials like public security, education or health care, mopakas can barely pay their foreign security "specialists"...

    2. Majority of these individuals are weak and cowards. Only having nuts when in numbers. But alone they are afraid. Probably sleeping with a night light to keep the boogeyman at bay.
      On the serious note; most do not have the stomach for being a killer. Following peers on orders and not thinking for themselves to make decisions.
      Ask me? I think it's a low self esteem issue with some people. Wanting to belong and acknowledged can put you in a pickle.

  28. Cartel members need to be shot. Period. The cartels are responsible for tearing mexico a part. I feel sorry for the people of mexico. They need sombra negra in mexico badly. Not just a rag-tag sombra negra. I am talking seal team 6 type sombra negra with CIA operatives. Slowly and quietly members of the cartels will just disappear.
