Around 5:00 p.m. this past Saturday, December 2, three officers assigned to the State   Tourist Police were killed in the middle of the Malecon in La Paz, Baja California Sur.

Commander Juan Polo Arreola, the supervising commander Christian Alberto León Aguiar, and Edmundo Vega Martínez, were left without life inside their patrol vehicle with the license number SSP 00001.


It should be noted that the State Tourist Police was recently inaugurated, a unit that is in charge of the Undersecretary of Public Security.


The Attorney General's Office of the State (PGJE) confirmed that "at approximately 4:35 p.m., the PGJE learned via C4 that in the  El Centro neighborhood in this capital, firearm detonations were heard. They located at the  corner of Calle Rosales and Álvaro Obregón (the Malecon), aboard their patrol vehicle, the bodies of the murdered policemen, three men, shot to death by a gun of large caliber".

The elements were attacked/ambushed  by an armed group of hit men while they were on the streets Paseo Álvaro Obregón (Malecón) at the corner of Antonio Rosales, El Parque Cuauhtemoc, in Colonia Centro, in front of the iconic Hotel Los Arcos, an enigmatic symbol of La Paz;  which sadly has been closed for a year due to a strike. The sicarios surprised the Police Patrol by opening fire upon them.

The police elements were on board their patrol unit when fired upon
Immediately, the red code was activated to search for the alleged perpetrators, who could be seen by a surveillance video camera located on the corner of the attack. So far, there are no reported detainees.
SEMEFO arrived and removed the bodies for forensic analysis and PGJE collected and sent the spent bullet cartridges to the lab for identification and analysis.
This is the second armed attack against police forces, just yesterday two agents of the Ministerial Police were injured and one killed after an ambush when they were on board a unit near  City Hall, ie, in La Paz on Friday Dec 1, 2017; the criminals fled the scene rapidly. A civilian reported that his car was damaged by the gunfire. This occurred at the corner of another new OXXO.

Sadly, students at La Preparatoria Ceyte 08 ran for their lives when the heard more than 15 detonations of gunfire.

Unofficially, the attackers have been identified as "El Dimas". Perhaps they are carrying out the threat of "cleaning the plaza" that was written on the narco mantas around town last week in the wake of the horrific murder of Human Rights Commissioner Sylvester de la Toba, his son, and the wounding of his wife and daughter who were all traveling in the car together. "Los Tegoripenos and Los Guzmans" left the mantas threatening all gov't officials with the same fate as the de la Toba family if they did not "align themselves".

"Times to Pray":

President of the Municipality of La Paz Armando Martinez Vega
On Dec 5th, Armando Martinez Vega, President of the Municipality of La Paz made a statement in which he said that: " These are times for prayer, as one more citizen of the La Paz it pains me greatly what is going on in my city, my municipality, my state, I have children , grandchildren, family; these are times of crises and I ask all our citizens to join with me in prayer and ask God to help us all get through these terrible times together; may the ones who perpetrate this upon us retire. 

" I ask all to raise their prayers to the grand creator of the Universe to help us through these sad times that we have been enduring for months, in fact, the last three years that we have been exposed to such insecurity and we also hope that He will help the Authorities and the three levels of Government resolve this theme of violence."

    6. The OXXOS are owned by some of the richest mexicans, among them the granddaughter of Don Eugenio Garza Sada sold Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc to Heineken for cash and Heineken shares, also owns FEMSA and Coca~Cola Eva Maria Garza Lagüera Gonda, she is looking for a husband.
      Another mexican billionaire heiress that sold the family business Maria Asuncion Aramburuzabala, sold Cerveceria Modelo to Anheuser-Bush,

  4. You can bet your ass that the military and Marina’s are going to use their new authority and just start eliminating and taking out the garbage. One way to fully execute the bastards. They have no right to live and no right to life or a trial. Extra judicial executions are fine by me.

    1. You profoundly claim that extra judicial executions are "fine by me." Ok, jeffe maximo. What if we start with your children? Porque no? Think about what you are saying.

    2. Screw the bums its time for the military to just let loose and start taking them down fast & hard. I so agree they have NO right to live in society.

    3. Unbelievable!
      Reading comments from readers condoning military extra judiciary executions is far from a solution. From a country whose known for lacking human rights. Can only imagine the mass killings of innocent people. Moreover, the impunity they will be granted from prosecution. It’s Looking like the end of democracy and the beginning of military rule.
      I think no true solution will be simple to restore law and order. The thought of toppling it’s governing officials by force would best serve its citizens. However, it comes with a huge cost (loss of lives). Moreover, fierce resistance.
      Intervention by foreign powers to assist will not be welcomed. As noted in past references with investigative claims and reporting.
      Truly believe Mexico will officially become that militarized narco government of the world.

    4. E42. Real solution is for US to legalize drugs. Mexico government can't stop something we don't stop.

    5. The mexican government narco-mierdocracia can't pay for weapons with drugs,
      but they sure can pay with state owned enterprises and exports of drugs for weapons and ammo and discrete amounts to the foreign bank of their predilection

    7. when are w going to stop the united states? yes the us i sthe largest consumer but not the only consumer, some states lealized marijuana Nothing changed, drugs can be legalized and these guys will find other methods like smugglin people or stealing gas, mexico became a consumer of its own product look at these sicarios they are tweakers. and mexican citizens need to stop glorifying them with corridos and need to stop bribing cops over traffic stops and gotta stand up and fight rather than play the victim

    8. Brazil's BOPE units are regularly sent to the favelas to execute dangerous gang members with minimum civilian casualties. Maybe such a military unit would work well in Mexico?

  5. Sorry Mister Mayor, the three powers of government are the root of your problem, what you need is ban all the parties and have one election of indeo3ndent candidates without party or partisan record, or history of government work at any level, and a government with no contracts to hand out to anybody, I mean if you want to make politics "LOCAL".
    The SSP del estado are too often just the local Fuerza Delictiva under any guise or disguise supervised by the judicial federal, a bigger bunch of greedy criminals.
