Gov of Jalisco Says Wave of Violence is Not Over

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Universal


Guadalajara, Jalisco Feb 8, 2018


After the violent day of Tuesday in Jalisco, in which in less than 12 hours 17 people were murdered, the governor of the state, Aristotle Sandoval , acknowledged that the situation in the state is critical.


" Complicated days are coming, I will not lie to you , the wave of violence is not going to end, what we can and are obliged to do, and what we are going to do is contain it, we have  skin in the game , to prevent this crisis from shaking our state, Gov Sandoval said during a state tour of  deliveries of patrols and equipment to authorities in Jalisco's 112 municipalities.


He went on to say that to contain the wave of insecurity that exists in the entire country there is no other route than the coordination between police corporations and the continuous work of the authorities of the three levels of government.



                             Strong words from Jalisco Governor Aristoteles Sandoval


"Let's not stop raising our voices: if the violence is normalized we will have lost the battle and it is time to invite everyone in our schools, our parents,  to organize  our society and from now on  tell and teach  the young people who believe that crime and the narco lifestyle is the easiest exit door , to those who believe that this is the best way to live keep telling them that they are making serious mistakes, that very soon all of it will end badly, " he said.


He acknowledged that Jalisco has been in the eye of the hurricane for years and that crime rates have increased.
                                                 "What to do? Where to walk? :


To answer these questions it is necessary to refer again to the need to be clear and concise, we have to, without excuse or pretext, improve the coordination between security corporations; the first objective is the need and I want to clarify that  frankly,  this is not a political resource, the electoral thing does not interest me, we want to have dedicated full-time authorities performing  their functions, governor - 24/7, mayors - 24/7, we must understand that the situation is critical and has no signs of improving, " states the governor of the State of Jalisco .


Gov Sandoval said "to the case of the mayor of the Metropolitan Area of ​​Guadalajara, ie Pablo Lemus of Zapopan, he has refused to personally attend the security coordination meeting held every Monday per month." 


Thus, he insisted on the need to hold weekly coordination meetings and recognized the officials who attend the security councils and the metropolitan coordination meeting hold the key to success.


"To those who do not, I extend the invitation again ; to contain the violence there is no other route than coordination, it is not a clich茅 to say that if we are coordinated we are stronger, that if we are united we can then summon society to join to the union; we are the ones who must and we will set the example, in this space I want to point out that the most important resource that the country has and, of course, our state is to face the crisis in society as a whole, " he said. 

He also called on society to denounce anything that affects their tranquility and those that seek to disturb it.


"Let's say we're not going to leave, let's say we know that this is a stage of horror, but calm will come soon, let's say that they can not be stronger than us, that they can not and will not intimidate us, that's why I call the  whole to denounce the violence,  to extirpate  any kind of apology of crime, narco-culture or glorification of violence as a route to resign ourselves to the conflict. "

A US Doctor Bludgeoned to Death in Puerto Vallarta last week:
From Various Sources:


A beloved UAB doctor has died after he suffered a severe head injury while on vacation in Mexico.

William Thomas O'Byrne III, 54, was pronounced dead Wednesday, March 2 at UAB Hospital (University of Alabama ) where he was on life support after he was flown back to the United States. O'Byrne was an anesthesiologist who specialized in critical care.


The Jefferson County Coroner's Office confirmed they were notified of a William O'Byrne's death at UAB Hospital following the reported assault in Mexico. Because the incident took place outside of Jefferson County, Al the coroner's office here is not involved per state law.


Details about what led to the injury aren't clear. Friends say O'Byrne took a vacation with his friends to Puerto Vallarta when he was severely beaten and left for dead in a ditch. His friends found him at a hospital where he was hooked up to a ventilator. He was later flown back to Alabama.


That account hasn't been confirmed by American authorities. Law enforcement officials in Birmingham, Alabama said they haven't been made aware of the incident. If any crime happened, the law enforcement jurisdiction would be in Mexico. Inquiries to the U.S. Dept of State were not immediately answered.


A spokesman at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City said they are aware of the case, and are working to gather information for release. On Friday, they released this statement to AL.com: "We are aware of reports regarding a U.S. citizen injured in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Out of respect for the family, we decline further comment at this time."


O'Byrne, a Blount County native, graduated from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in 1997. He most recently worked UAB Hospital, where he was also an associate professor.


UAB officials provided only this statement: "At the request of the family, we have been asked not to release any information."

Dr. Jason Hall, an anesthesiology resident at Duke, said O'Byrne was a special man.


"Like he was to so many medical students and residents before me, he was my mentor and friend,'' Hall said. "He was a gifted physician trained both in medicine and anesthesiology with fellowship training in critical care. He showed kindness and genuine concern for his patients above and beyond that of other physicians."


Hall said O'Byrne always demonstrated the utmost respect for his colleagues and co - workers.
"He was loved by many wherever he went, be it UAB, New Mexico, or Vanderbilt,'' Hall said. 


"His passing is a terrible loss for the medical community, and he will be truly missed. His friendship and advice has comforted and motivated me throughout my medical training, and I can only hope to live up to the example he set for all physicians."

    1. I wish there was a blog of slayings in the US. For instance, in Long Beach CA there were mas slayings in 85', 93', and 2008 on top of all the other murders, rapes, and all other kinds of mayhem. It's all covered up here in the back pages.

    2. He sounds sincere about addressing the violence systematically. But it will continue until one side loses. Mencho is known to commit massacres in these situations, as he did with La Resistencia, going after families etc.

    4. I am getting fed up with people saying stop criticizing Mexico, just look at America and saying see they have murders, crime, and corruption happening...they're no worse then us. Not only are you juvenile (think "I know you are but what am I") but insanely wrong.

      Here is a metaphor. America and Mexico each have a mole on their face. America has had it checked out. Though it looks bad, it is benign. Mexico has not had it checked out and it looks like carcinoma (cancer). When America says that doesn't look good, Mexico responds saying look in the mirror you have a mole too, but they ignore the fact it is probably cancerous and needs to be addressed.

      Now taking this further, the problem with these people saying stop criticizing Mexico and look at america is that they are ignoring that the crime and corruption in America is not threatening to destroy the country, nor is it systemic (it is generally contained in certain areas). They also ignore the fact that America also does a very good job responding to crime, Mexico not so much.

      As an American, calling out a country (ie. Mexico) does not mean we are ignorant of America's issues. Nor does it mean I hate Mexico and it's people. In fact it's the opposite. I (and probably most others critical of Mexico) want Mexico to get better and feel bad for the innocent people caught in the middle of the cartels and corrupt government. Admitting you have a problem (like this governor) is the first step towards fixing it.

    5. 4:33 What do you need to know about Chicago? I can give you long drawn reply about why the murder rate is high but I doubt you will accept my comment. Chicago has been a ethnic melting pot since the 1800’s and with all those races mingling you have issues. As the Europeans started leaving the inner city it left minority groups to fight each other so they turned on themselves. Chicago has been a battle of supremacy by the street gangs since the 1930’s. Black Disciples, Gangster Disciples, Vice Lords, Latin Kings, Maniac Latin Disciples, Gaylords and Four Corner Hustlers to name a few are constantly at war. Its what the government at first but the violence got out of hand. Social media has increased the street beefs 10X of what they use to be. The government arrested many of the OG gang leaders causing power vacuums in most of the major gangs just like what happened to the Mexican Cartels. Where I’m from the Aryans and Meth Monkeys are killing each other at a high rate but it’s not news worthy because they are white. This narrative doesn’t meet the right wing reporting agenda so there is no mention by conservative news outlets. They only report on black on black gun crime in the big cities and illegal immigration.

    6. Governor Aristoteles Sandoval has the State and Federal Police and the military, including the military zone commander to help with security, the municipales are his too, but as the governor he has to order them into action and make them accountable for the results, the job is easy, just order and keep out of the way like guadalajara mayor at the same time given the shortcomings of law enforcement jaliskas, the people must defend themselves and the governor is supposed to take the lead or follow them or get the fact out of the way, NOW, not 10 years from now when today's minor students graduate and start working for his defunct corrupt party-government...
      --governor sandoval should have gone ten more years to school before becoming one more pinchi narco-politician unable to make 馃挬 馃挬 馃挬 po贸p without his mommy around.

    7. Chicago are mostly 12 - 17 year old kids settling playground beefs with guns. The situation in Chicago differs from anywhere else, because most of the perpetrators and victims are juveniles who can't own guns legally.

      Do admit u make a point on several topics.

      My wife a ( nurse) made an interesting comment pertaining The opioid crisis. The alarming rate of deaths and to who are mostly affected ( Caucasian) has brought this issue to light.
      Massachusetts, Philadelphia, Ohio ect. Where the demographics clearly illustrates the majority of Caucasian. The crack epidemic which was considered a minority’s problem did little too late to address the issue.
      The opioid epidemic has spiked 40% - 60% deaths in the Midwest region.
      Have to admit that certain issues of color have preferential urgency.

      As for the gang violence issue in Chicago merely stupidity. Where choices of living are clearly met with ignorance.

  10. First is that CJNG seems to be weak even in it's home state allowing this violence. If it where as strong as they say perhaps this would not happen???
    Second seems that if CJNG is at a full scale war with CDS then they do not seem to be using all their so called resources to prevent CDS from taking over their home state.
    All this leads to believe that either a CDS vs CJNG is all false or that CJNG is simply not the mighty cartel people think it is.

    1. It's called cleaning the plaza, cjng is not like cds or beltranes. They are more brutal, cds and beltranes both operate in culiacan and are cool with it. Like so mayo calling Mencho for a ceace fire wanting a truce, Mencho don't play that and took the plaza and most his people, that's the difference.. Cds doesn't even own Sinaloa, they would be in a suicidal mission going to menchos turf, that's why cds would rather fund la nueva familia and viagras in an attempt to take out cjng. It's working in michoacan but that's about it, michoacanos are fierce though so no surprise there. Jalisco is getting clean3d by el 18 and Mencho just like colima

    2. Mencho took the plaza of Jalisco calm down what part of BLO CDS still operate there don’t you understand without paying plaza . Don’t lie CDS is in Jalisco

    3. 6:55 Clealry another michoacano/cjng tweeker jealous of anything Sinaloa. Menso has almost lost colima and is getting kicked out of his home state. Their paper tiger presence in TJ and Baja is begining to unfold too. Dude get real cjng was just another sexenio cartel that comes and goes while Sinaloa has generations doing their shit. Mayo never asked menso for shit and has put his name on mantas in michoacan. If anything he punked menso to get the chapitos back dont forget that kid. FOH

    6. 11:11 no punk there, he got a big ransom remember? Why would a michoacano be jeolous of a sinaloa?

    7. 6:54 what ransom is this you're talking about?? Sinaloa got chapos kids back by playing chess with menso and he flinched when chapo got his kid and told him how he gets his kids back is how menso is gonna get mensito back. Facts never no ransom lol

    8. 6:54 what plazas has cjng taken from Sinaloa? Cjng doesnt have one olaza outside of jalisco. Theyve been how long veracruz and still cant wrap that up?? Guanajuato is a lost cause for cjng, CDS is in colima still and winning it back from all reports except on bb, TJ is still owned by Mayos people, baja is still CDS for real what plaza is you talking about? All cjng is doing across mexico is putting up mantas that they've arrived, kill innocents and portray them as rivals.

  11. I’m very curious what transpired with the American doctor. I find pv and it’s People to really care about their city and incidents are very low. It’s been a very safe place for tourists and for locals. I’d hate to see it change. Last week criminal gangs held up jewelry stores inbroad day light armed to the teeth in the tourist zone and the police actually caught them at the second robbery. They are from Mexico City. It seems most criminals in pv aren’t even locals but looks like pv is about to see some crime

    1. I am too, I will keep looking for follow up, but don’t hold your breath for any news from Mex authorities. The last time I was in PV in 83 ( ya really ) the airport was still a Palapa outta town. My gal friend got her purse snatched, idiota had EVERYTHING in it......we went to the police early in the morning.
      They told us “ THAT is THE FIRST TIME EVER “ this has happened in PV. Hahahahaha........some things never change. Most of PV was literally a small town with cobblestone streets and burros in them.......ah, those were the days

No sloppy walking around town drunk EVER, don’t just go there to get wasted PLEASE. BE POLITE to everyone, Mexicans are known as the most polite of Latin Americans. please and thank you for everything and every one , show respect. if you don’t know ANY espanol, get the basic phrases. Even that shows respect and Mexican people are generally friendly and helpful, even if try with a smile on your face. Use common sense and manners and have a great time !

  13. I find myself getting so jaded as I get older, but sometimes you read an article and you think maybe there is some kind of hope.
    Mexico is one of my favorite places on Earth. The people are amazing and giving and fast witted and funny and some of the hardest workers I've been around. I've been on the absolute loneliest roads in the middle of the night and had strangers invite me into their home and feed me, repair my tire and send on my way. Didn't know a lick of Spanish. Got kicked off the trolley in Logan after partying in TJ and losing my ticket, when this dude offered for me to crash at his mom's place. Got there and she had Sopas and it was nothing to them to have a random person crash on the couch. Mexicans and Americans are better than the current situation.

  14. That's a pretty high level evaluation, and while I don't disagree, how do you convey that to normal people who work and have kids and bills and struggle? That's just the U.S. perspective.
    Struggle down south is something completely different. I won't pretend to know. That's what BB is for. The question is how do you get normal people with the same concerns, to talk to each other?
