Narcos promise Bishop they will "try" not to kill more candidates

Canadiana for Borderland Beat republished from Mexico Daily


Bishop Salvador Rangel Mendoza, who has previously encouraged dialogue with drug cartels as a means of reducing violence, said he met Friday with a gang leader during a visit to Heliodoro Castillo in the state’s Sierra region.

After raising the issue of the assassination of candidates, he said, the gangster “promised to try to prevent it and allow a free election to take place in which the choice of the people would prevail . . ..”

The cartel insisted on two conditions: that those running for office not give away money in an attempt to buy votes, and that once the election was over the candidates must fulfill all their promises.

“What they ask for is a free, just and secret vote, nothing more,” the bishop declared.

Bishop Rangel had traveled to the town of Pueblo Viejo where criminal elements had cut off electricity and water in an attempt to flush out a number of rivals.

“I explained to them that while some of their enemies might have been there it was also true that there were  old people, children and pregnant women, and all of them needed those services,” he said.

Rangel’s intercession succeeded and the gang yielded, reconnecting the utilities.

The bishop refused to identify the criminals with whom he spoke or provide any other information regarding the gang to which they belong.

Relations between Rangel and criminal organizations went awry two months ago when two priests and the relatives of a nun were murdered in two different incidents.

Of the 42 politically-related assassinations in Mexico since September, 12 were in Guerrero. Oaxaca was next with eight.

  2. You have to give narcos the benefit of the doubt when it comes to keeping a promise. You also have to give credit to this bishop who although has no actual power has the nerve to try and bring some end to some killings in order to bring about a common good-democratic elections. Some people might say that their is no point in talking with narcos and that they do not keep promises and blah blah blah blah but that is the most pessimistic view of the world that anybody can have and also offers no other reasonable solution to end anything.
    Down with drug lords and kill them all shit are not reason, is barbaric and uncivilized and has so far proven to do shit anyways to stem the killings and the flow of drugs.
    Can't wait to see smart bitchi single tracked people comment on my opinion here saying all cartel people deserve no negotiations and just death and crap.

    1. 9:43 the problem is not just narcos,, lets take them out the picture and we still have corrupt ass politicians .. from mayors to Governors. its a corrupt system all the way around. And do-gooders dont last long in a tank full of sharks. Then you also have alot of people at poverty levels who will gladly do evil deeds for a few pesos.Then the supply and demand chain going on.Too many millions on some Capos minds to soften up around the round table.

    3. @9:43 unless you can talk with every cell belonging to that cartel and get every cells promise or the main boss such as Nemesio or Ismael o Alfredo you get the point the promises are just that a promise by one sicario and his cell but you have handfulls over n over of diffrent groups i just dont see talking bringing peace the only talk that matters is that of the main top bosses of each cartel and even then you always have internal fighting so almost a guarantee the promises are just words like fuck love and shit

    4. I agree with you. It might not be a perfect solution to the problem, but at least the bishop is trying. He at least got them to turn the utilities back on. It takes a lot of strength to have hope in a seemingly hopeless situation IMO

    5. @9:43 If we were actually killing them all there wouldn't be so many in the prisons. So saying that killing them all has been proven not to work is a false statement, though it is definitely uncivilized. Of course, in order to deal with someone in a civil manner they have to be willing to be civil in return; something their methods of removing competition has proven they are incapable of being.

      On the flip side, at least the cartels are honest about their uncivil behavior. Unlike the politicians that pretend to be civil to your face, and then send someone else to shoot up your home or place of business.

    6. Shutting down utilities flushed some big rats out to negotiate, we need to do more of that.
      But I don't see the need to be murdering and raping the priests and the nuns repeatedly for weeks, typical of Central American extreme right paramilitary mercenaries that always go for the throat and ass of the people's Liberation Theologians.
      --By the way, why is el pinchi "Mula Bronca" Rodriguez in the middle with el padrecite por delante, his magic evaporated?

    7. @11:30 you have to start somewhere to end killings and corruption.
      @5:28 do you have a better idea of what to do to end killings and or corruption other than offer a pessimistic view of the bishops efforts?

    8. I unironically believe that the Mexico is dire need of mass extermination, because at the current rate of the on going slaughter and massacres in which innocent Mexican citizens are involved in daily, it's the cartels who are doing the extermination. An all civil war needs to be break out in Mexico. The big cartels have enough power to slaughter an entire Mexican town and get away with it.

    11. Fuck all you thinking about killings. Maybe we shouod just let drug addicts in the U.S. OD and die off also??? Saves on rehab costs and less people on the planet to feed.
      10:16 you talk alot of shit keyboard warrior!

    13. @1:13PM I try to help those in the U.S. that have drug problems, but when they refuse help and repeat the same actions over and over I find myself no longer feeling responsible for those people. If a person is continually ODing, and doing nothing to try and fix themselves, the only person responsible for their death is themselves.

      Has nothing to do with rehab costs, or the number of people on the planet, and everything to do with making people suffer the consequences of their own actions. Personal responsibility is severely lacking in folks these days.

  4. “TRY”
    That word has no significant meaning nor a guaranteed.
    Have to agree Obvious Guy makes a point. Narcos alone don’t control nor can sway the electoral system. Where evidence points to the fact; political corruption practices to acquire foothold have been displayed in past elections.
    Its not by narcos hands often who commit such crimes, but those same political officials who have vested interests.

    1. Here is one I agree with you W42, the manifest about the utilities and respect for the vote says it is about politics of new comers against old guard vote buying fraudsters, and opportunities to seek relevance by "la mula bronca" with help of the bishop, priistas and their sicarios have been killing leftist volunteers since forever, orders from above always.

  6. There's lots of different Cartels in Mexico, and you mean to tell a preist can keep them in order? And the Cartels want promise s in return. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  7. Cartels run rampant, they don't make promises. They want the political people, to be in collusion with them.

  8. All the problems in Mexico begin and end with the corrupt politicos and PRI are the worst of the worst.Each governor runs his state like a private fiefdom,almost autonomous from central gob
