The Plazas of Organized Crime: A classification

Every day in various parts of the country there are armed clashes  between groups of organized crime, which seek to control as many municipalities as possible. It is a rampant race among dozens of organizations, where the will never be a definitive “winner”.  Even so, these criminal groups have incentives to try and expand their areas of influence and keep the plazas that are under their control.

Control translates into income. 


In order to facilitate the understanding of the functions that the different locations fulfill, the author has decided to group them into five categories based on their characteristics:

1)  Border points, these are the municipalities bordering the United States, Guatemala and Belize, which serve as a point of Mexico’s entry or exit of drugs and other illicit products.
2)  Other points of entry/exit of illicit products would be the municipalities where main ports and airports are located. This includes municipalities where waterfront strips can accommodate smaller boats. 
3) Production or resource extraction ones, including municipalities where marijuana, heroin, synthetic drugs are produced, as well as fuel, metals and minerals can be illegally extracted/mined.  
4)  Drug sales or illegal market operations.  These are typically populated municipalities or tourist corridors where illegal products can be traded.  This category also includes areas where important legal markets serve the organizations for money laundering.  
5)  Transit points for drugs or other illegal products, which are the regions that are on the main routes of drugs or illegal products into the United States.

  1. Nunca se a sabido que el CJNG combata la frontera de Juarez. Si pasan droga por lo que se dice pero que ellos esten combatiendo no se a escuchado aunque dicen que tienen tregua con La Linea. A lo mejor y hasta pagan piso por crusar la droga a LA Linea???

    1. No compa eso de que tienen tregua con la linea es puro pedo. Los Zetas de Veracruz mandan refuerzos alos de la linea, y el CJNG esta peleando la plaza mazizo ahorita en Veracruz.

    1. The gulf cartel controls amd has acces to more of the border than any cartel.

      Delete
    2. Gulf has no real power. It's a bunch of gangsters. With no real plugs. The zetas destroyed CDG a long time ago. By taking and exposing the bosses and plugs to drugs like meth, powder, and 1/2 of the horse connects. All they do is fight and move weed into The Valley

      Delete
    3. And the best corridors aswell, both matamoros and reynosa lead to the I-35 corridor.

      Delete
    4. They control the border cities of Tamaulipas which we ALL know that they don't compare to the bigger Border plazas Juarez, Tijuana and Mexicali ... not even Nuevo Laredo comes close

    5. 8:21 no mames pinchi jediondota, pinchis golfas can barely hold on to the gulf beach selling ice popsicles.

      Delete
    6. @5:23 Both Reynosa and Matamoros have entrance to the I_35 corridor. New York, Chicago, Atlanta, etc,, they have access to way more important cities than Juarez does.

    7. De san antonio sale la merca para todos lados, puro CDG alv los del CDN

      Delete
    8. The zetas destroyed the cdg? In what fantasy world is that? Your ignorance is crazy. Cdg still going strong.

      Delete
    9. The gulf cartel has the best border space. Coke bud meth tar go up money drugs and tactical equipment go south.

      Delete
    10. Reynosa y Matamoros are nowhere near top plazas. First they have a fraction of truck traffic that Nuevo Laredo, Juarez and almost every border going west has. Plus once your across your hundred of miles from first major distribution points, fraction of the traffic on highways in the valley, and lower traffic count at borders and past borders ofReynosa and Matamoros have you looking more suscpicious on the two lane roads up to i35, i10, etc etc.

      Delete
    11. @1:38. Yea destroyed. Who's the gulfs leaders? Or leutenents ? Or what comandantes are left? Yea I'll wait. Gulf is a joke of its former self. They are broke ass gangsters fight each other for the shake. Lmao. They have people. Lots and lots of people. With no leader. And they are so tore up that no one leader will be able to bring them together. Gulf is down to multiple street sets. That's all. Broke, wet, cold and scared.

  3. Are Union Tepito and Cartel de Tlahuac really the two biggest superpandillas/mini-cartels in Mex City? Or are they just the most well-covered in the press and their reputations are blown out of proportion?

  4. CDS has every strategic entry / shipment point in Mexico. You don't hear about them in Cancun, DF, Monterrey, etc. b/c when your moving hundreds of thousands of pounds EVERY DAY oN trucks, boats, planes, trains, tunnels - your not going to generate heat on yourself for getting a few kilos of local consumption a day at Mexican retail prices because there selling hundreds of thousands of kilos 365 days a year throughout the USA. By the way - CDS and BLO are one and the same again except for a few tweaked out fringes.

    4. 744 you're on a site about cartels, and you dare to say why do we care what CDS does. Lmao you take time in your so important life to read about them, so I guess you do.

    5. 7:44 ay si, pinchi jota que segun muy millonaria.

    6. 7:44. Why would you care? Because your reading this.

      8:12. My proof. Never tell a civilian like you but everybody that knows this biz and not just an emotionally tied cheerleader knows this is true. Also genius look at the cities CDS operates in and they all matter as an import, distribution, or export location. They don't fuck with less strategically important.

    7. @1126. You forgot the traditional " they dont kill innocents either" haha.....after all we are talking corridos

      Delete
    8. 9:34 and 11:26 I, read articles here to make sense of the shit going on in Mexico for myself and for others. I, also read to find out if anything important is going on as far as a capture of a criminal and such. I, also try and comment sometime with no good words about cartels to try and discourage if possible people from joining them! I, don't give a fuck about the logistics or fortune that CDS or any other cartel has. Get my point?

      Delete
    9. @6:24. No i don't get your point and you used a lot of words to say nothing.

      Delete
    10. @Chivis. I, hate cartels and people that boast the BLOOD MONEY that they make. These people that boast about a criminals fortune are worse than the cartel members because they alone entice indirectly weak minded fools to join the cartels just to TRY-keyword- to make a name for themselves in the drug game. I, could care less like I, stated about the logistics and money the cartels may or may not have.

  6. This is off topic but does anyone know who the "rooster of Sinaloa" is or was. I just watched the documentary Narco Cultura. In one part, a corridor singer from Los Angeles goes to sing at a party in Culican and was told the house is that of the rooster of Sinaloas son.

    1. I'm sure the U.S is the same with more cartels operating from different parts of the world in all major cities.

    2. Yes and likewise there's not a single city in US w/o crips, bloods, Latin kings, tengo blast etc etc etc etc slinging rock, powder, horse, sherm, etc etc etc.
      Then you have your corner markets in every US city buying government food assistance for 50 cents on the dollar so Americans can get their arm candy; then you have your accountants, bankers, attorneys and million dollar service sector serving the drug industry.
      Conclusion; USA is a drug consuming monster with an millions of dealers and service providers helping the drugs go north and the money go south.

    3. 7:45 drug money "Goes South" but only inside the pockets of the american banksters.

      Delete
    4. 3:02; Ouch - I believe 7:45 just destroyed your under-informed assertion. It takes one driver to haul a semi with a ton of product across border of US, but it takes hundreds of middlemen, hundreds of transporters, and thousands of dope peddlers to cut and turn that product into cash. Then you've got the separate chain of launderers that are also on US side getting that money back to us in Culiacan

      Delete
    5. 11:33 you only get like 10% and more usually less back to "culiacan", standard fee for middlemen that includes all the expenses and commissions.

      Delete
    6. 1:17. Are you talking 10% of retail price coming back. Well if so...probably less but if you sell 1 million worth of product to one or two buyers in US your biggest cost is product (usually 8-15 times our cost depending what it is and where you took ownership, buying on credit or paid for, etc. ) and transportation is cheaper the bigger amounts you risk moving. Truck cheap, cars or mules expensive - so your mathematical formula is lacking a ton of variables genius expert.

    1. Should be interesting, it's a battle of the titans. Mayo vs. Mencho, let's see who the real boss of bosses is. That's really what it comes down to, cds usually snitches against their enemies to goverment to catch their competition but Mencho knows that so it's about who is making the better payments. Mayo has been in the mountains for a very long time but I'm sure he has the sinaloa goverment paid so he doesn't worry much. Same with jalisco and Mencho. Only time will tell.

  23. According to El Blog Del Narco, San luis potisi belongs to CJNG
