Mexico Prison Massacre Linked to Zetas Takeover Allegations

See 17 Dead in Cadereyta Prison

                   At least 13 died in rioting at Cadereyta prison
Written by James Bargent

At least 13 people have died in a prison mutiny in north Mexico that some witnesses claim was a backlash against an attempted takeover of the prison by the Zetas, highlighting the criminal control and corruption that are pervasive in the penal system.

Trouble at Cadereyta prison in the state of Nuevo Leon erupted when inmates took three guards hostage on October 10, reported AFP.


The situation deteriorated into rioting, with around 250 inmates burning rubbish and mattresses and taking to the prison roof with banners denouncing alleged links between prison director Edgardo Aguilar Aranda and organized crime group the Zetas, reported EFE.

Authorities confirmed that at least 13 inmates died in the clashes, with at least 8 more injured, two of them police officers. However, other reports suggest the number of injured stands at least as high as 25, while the number of dead could also rise.

The authorities responded by sending in 60 police patrols to restore order and state Interior Secretary Manuel González Flores to negotiate with the inmates, according to EFE.

Gonzalez told media that the rioting broke out over prison conditions. However, family members of the inmates say prisoners took action over a plan by the prison director to bring in Zetas members to assert control over the prison, a claim supported by a banner strewn across a wall declaring "We don't want a Z director," stated AFP.

According to EFE's report, the prisoners behind the violence were connected to the Zetas' former parent organization and long-time enemies the Gulf Cartel.

The incident is the second deadly prison riot of the year in Cadereyta, with four dying in disturbances in March.

InSight Crime Analysis

Mexico's prison system, like many in the region, is underfunded and overpopulated, a situation that has led to prisoners themselves controlling the insides of up to 60 percent of institutions, according to some experts.

When prisoner rule is combined with rampant corruption, the conditions are ripe for organized crime to assert dominance, extorting inmates and controlling the flows of contraband.

The Zetas in particular have proven adept at setting up internal criminal networks within prisons, most notably in the case of a penitentiary in the state of Coahuila, Piedras Negras. Investigations have revealed how the Zetas allegedly turned the prison into a base of operations. They used it to dispose of the corpses of an estimated 150 victims, and broke out over 130 inmates. They also manufactured uniforms, bulletproof vests, and modified cars inside the prison to hide drugs and weapons, all in complicity with state authorities.

In another case, prison authorities at Gómez Palacio prison in Durango allegedly allowed Zetas inmates out of prison to carry out murders, including the massacre of 17 people in 2010.

Former inmates speaking to Vice earlier this year detailed how Cadereyta has not previously been subjected to organized crime rule. However, following the protests in March, which were reportedly against new security measures, it is easy to see how striking a deal with the Zetas would be a tempting proposition for the prison director, allowing the authorities to bring new levels of control over unruly inmates, as well as providing riches to the corrupt officials that facilitate their activities.

  1. The Zetas cartel has had a weakening structure since the top brass has been imprisoned or killed , the restructuring of the current organization has took it from the streets to the inside penitentiary, A playbook borrowed from the Mexican mafia who has a strong allegiance with the Zetas in the California department of corrections. It is widely accepted that if you control the inside you control the outside and the Zetas are making a play for the inside of Mexico's prison institutions - THE REAL SOL PRENDIDO

    3. 1:06 what Chole means is that the pinchs zetas are tryin to take over control of prisons in mexico the way the eMe does on the US, AND Chole is righ, but it happened before, only takeoversion were more "local" until the New Mexico state Prison riot in Santa Fe, since then gangs got real bold in their approach to business, IN CAHOOTS WITH STATE PRISON WARDENS, "curiously" soon afterthat, private prisons started to get a Lotta business, and subcontracts, and they keep trying for more every minute, the idea is that the state is there just to give juicy contracts to their private investing corporate welfare queens lambegüebos who create the criminals early as possible from pre-school and "magnet institutions".

    9. All of you poor children are so uninformed a simple Google search turns up dozens of cases where zeta members were sentenced to state and federal prisons all across California , just in orange county Look up Los alamitos race horse tied to zetas and you may learn something . Clearly none of you have any idea how the U.S. prison system works but inside drugs are king and if you are cartel connected you will have an ability to get drugs and the eme has the ability to get them in. - THE REAL SOL PRENDIDO

  3. This is why none of the big dawgs want to be extradited to the US. Unless they are a snitch or plan to snitch, then they run to the arms of the DEA and American prosecutors. What a shit show Mexico is! In Mexico, is it even considered snitching when someone in the cartel works with Mexican police forces? In the US, if you work with the cops you are considered no good by other real criminals. In Mex though, it seems to be par for the course for everyone to bribe and work with LE. So how do cartel members look at it? Sapo, oh no?

  4. 9:02-That's a good question? If the cartels work for the cops it could be good or could be bad depending on which side of the fence the cops are.If a criminal does work with the cops to apphrehend their own well would their own even think it was in a bad way for them or could the criminal that works with the cops pull the wool over everyone's eyes the criminal works with and no 1 would be the wiser?

  6. Only in Russia do the guards run the prisons. Even in the US, the inmates are in charge. That is a fact. I served 6 months in a US prison. Guards were basically handed their paychecks by the inmates.

    1. You are right about Russia that's what is needed in mx but in the us where did you serve 6 months CCA or GEo before you were deported because the majority of CO jails or TDC prisons or federal don't put up with bullshit especially disrespecting officers.

    2. Bro six months in county ain't the pin and that's hardly enough time for you to get the down low on what goes on between guards and the big homies

    3. Haha @6:11 do you have any idea how corrupt Russia is? Makes America look clean. No way the guards are truly in control at any prison. Just like the old adage goes; the prisoners are in control because they LIVE there.
