VIDEO: “El Guero” The Hamburger Stand Man

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: El Universal y Televisa
Selling ​​hamburgers under the bridge where they hung up to 9 bodies; "I fear almost nothing," he says.

"El Güero", as he is known, says that early morning he heard a loud blow, "as if someone had been run over." When he turned around he saw a dead person on the street , but he continued at his work.

The discovery of 19 bodies in different parts of Uruapan, Michoacán which caused horror, was followed by an unusual story.  VIDEO Next Page

            
In the images of the bridge where nine bodies appeared, some of them hanging, there was a light on the bottom.

This is a hamburger stand that does business at night.

The owner stayed in place trying to go unnoticed.

The photograph when it appears went viral last Thursday.

In the middle of bodies hanging from a bridge, a hamburger cart remained, owned by Isidro García Martínez, who since 1995 is in placed every night underneath the  bridge of the eastern drainage, near the industrial boulevard of Uruapan.

What do they call you?

“El Güero,” answered Isidro García Martínez, hamburger seller, in Uruapan, Michoacán.

About 4:30 am on Thursday morning, when he was about to finish his workday, he noticed something unusual.

“I heard the noise. I was working here early on. One fell first as if he had been run over or something like that and I just turned to the right where I heard the noise and I saw that one person was lying there and I just turned here and focused, and after a while I saw that there was one hanging,” said Isidro "El Güero" García Martínez, hamburger seller in Uruapan.

Despite the impact, Isidro tried to continue his work.

“Everything was left alone, but I didn't even want to leave here alone, I had to pick up my things, but when I saw that everything was very ugly I left the work stand and everything and I just left after a while. When all the bodies were taken away, I came back, I had already packed up, ” said Isidro García Martínez.

As part of the inquiries he spent four hours in the Public Ministry.

"It was very little that I had seen because I was simply at my work," he recalled.

- Was your family worried?

"Yes, but you also know and I have always told you, you have to fear problems, that's what you have to fear," he said.

-What did people say?

"Right now I have just arrived, but there is a scream every so often and 'I hear someone yell "look pa' rriba '," he said. ( Look UP !!)

Don Isidro argues that the only thing that matters to him is to move his family forward and the honesty of his work.

“Actually life did not provide for me to be a great person. I did not have the opportunity to study. I have the opportunity to work and it is a big activity that I have and I feel proud of myself. Because I have been able to move them ( his family) forward, without misusing my work, it  is all honest, clean, beautiful. Just life working without needing to be scrubbing anyone. That is my motto in life, ” said Isidro García, hamburger seller, in Uruapan.

  1. Will he continue to sell hamburgers ?
    I’m sure this media coverage will attract individuals to his food stand.

    Today I passed by the famous bridge in Nuevo Laredo.
    I saw an halcón hiding in the brush and jumped across when a military convoy passed.
    The Mexican federales have gotten worst , I was being harassed at nearly all toll booths heading to Monterrey.

    1. Maybe he wrong type of customer will appear--he should have never said he feared nothing.

      Ah yes the infamous NL bridge. NL is the one city that has scared me. I have shared my story of getting lost and the 'near miss'

      Bridge hanging were so common back in the 2010-2013. but the NL is the one that was most memorable.

      there was another, it was in Saltillo, in a tunnel, the bodies were wrapped like mummies, one or two had fallen. the photo almost looked like black art. It actually was atop winner in a prestigious global photog competition.

    2. I thought AMLO was going to stop the killing . Pena promised the same thing . Looks worse than ever right now to me . We need Quintero here in the USA . He will end up shot down like a dog in the street but that aint what we want .

    3. Federales have got worse. Never had a problem before just in the last few months

    4. @6:18 keep some things in mind. AMLO has been in Office for less than a year. It's a process, you wont see results over night, and lastly, there are suspects in custody for these murders.

    5. Chivis could you please provide link to your NL near miss?

    6. Federales or AMLO can't be everywhere,
      but hanging people from bridges and throwing dismembered carcasses on the road takes some time, I see nobody called for roadblocks or police of nearby towns for an emergency.
      Looks like police agencies went in an immediate blackout since days before for a few days, specially all arounf Uruapan.
      Even the AutoDefensas knew to have roadblocks before being dismantled.

  2. Blessings to this man for doing an honest day's work every day of his life.

    I read on another blog that the victims were mostly civilians, couple housewives, bus boys, etc.

  3. You know what’s fu is the Mexican presidente is blasting trump for some stupid racist shooting Mexicans in El Paso but the Mexican government doesn’t seem to care that her own people are hanging it’s citizens from bridges.....the stupid president of Mexico trying to turn the tide against trump and ignoring the facts in his own country ..... using political agenda to create hate towards Americans when the taco stand or hamburger stand guy watches bodies tossed off bridges .... politicians have no huevos....

    2. I agree with this statement. ALMO is lost in his socialist utopia.

      Maybe he can read more poetry to thugs to lower the crime rate. Socialism always works every time, just look at history. Just trust ALMO jaja

    7. Par for the course for politicians,hide domestic horror by deflecting to the old enemy and Trump as an easy target.Trouble is it works on morons

      Delete
    8. 4:51 nobody made him an easier target than himself and his 12000+ lies, all his gone people agree on one thing in private and in public, even before they quit or got sacked: "HE IS A MORON".
      I hope we don't have to comment on this morose subject ever again.
      PS England's Ambassador got recorded writing and talking about this exact same thing, his excuse was: "Well, it's true"

    9. GC has it right. AMLO cant say anything when there are 20,000+ killings in 6months in Mexico.

      Delete
    10. 10:12 you would have been elected to repair Mexican politics with your tired utopia, how come you didn't run for 20 years to become President? Your sponsors would have been so happy and still in power, but you have no idea what you talking about in reality.

  4. They should never have interviewed and published this...this poor hamburger man will now probably be killed. Maybe not but its still unnecessary. Stay safe Mr. Hamburger.

    1. Rest assured this MAN will not be touched. He was very adamant that he saw “nothing” in Michoacán it’s against the rules to hurt a civilian like this, he’s done nothing wrong.

    2. “In Michoacán it’s against the rules to hurt a civilian”... seriously??? Some of those hanging from the bridge were just civilians.

    3. Michoacan has rules i dont think they got the memo cause the people that were hanging were civilans mencho dont care about michocanos he lets los jaliskas kill his people

  8. Para las horas en que trabaja ese senor, corre micho riesgo. Hojala que los malandros lo dejen trabajar tranquilamente y que nada malo le pase al senor. Se ve que es honesto y honrable, que los malandros se den en la madre. Pero gente trabajadora y honesta, dejenlos trabajar en paz.

  9. Brave man! I fear for his safety! I don't like to be all negative, but I'd be concerned that the people that put those bodies there would consider him a loose end/witness and want to kill him. What's one more innocent when you have no regard for human life.

    1. 5:17, he is helping himself. The man ran numerous times for president and he fulfilled his dream. Unfortunately his dream didn't include a better life for Mexicans.
      Socialists only care about ruling. That way they can impose their idea of quality of life on everyone else.
      Fairness has nothing to do with it.

    2. Sorry to inform you that, Almo, is busy having conferences, and offering poems. People, pheasants getting killed everyday, is the least of his concerns.

    3. 14 people were detained in connection to the hangings a few days later in Guanajuato.

    4. 5:17 maybe call the governor, Silvano Aurioles Conejos is much closer, he likes to go asking AMLO for mo' better money all the time because he "spent" all his budget and if he doesn't get the money he wants, needs, demands! He will start kicking shit and Hogwash all over the barn with help of his replacement State's Attorney and Procurador...
      Presidentes of the Republic are more like a latter action, unless they are preempting with chiquihuitazos or michukanazos like prior presidentes that made their job easier for criminal cartels since they decided to bankrupt the Greatest Steel Works in the World Siderurgica Lazaro Cardenas for benefit of corrupt takeover artists Arcelor-Mittal, who just might be in a fight over the steel works with the Chinese and/or Canadian competitors nearby.

    1. He started packing the store but had to come back later to take it away due to forensics on the scene.
      Those bitter bitches forget he did not come to set up his store after the bodies were dropped, he was there first not anticipating what was to happen later, so you can quit bitching about shit you don't know.

      Delete
    2. Just like Obrador, this hamburger guy is blind to what is going on around him. There could be a shoot out, and he continues to cook. More bodies are hanged and fall off, he continues to cook. That's what I call a workaholic.

  18. This man is marked and in danger. Some evil pendejo sees the story and decides to assassinate him so he can take the burger stand location. In Mexico, few homicides are even investigated much less solved. So killing him is pretty safe (unless he is a protected halcon).

    Now that I have been following BB for years, nothing surprises me.
    BB had a case a few years back of a old man ib a wheelchair who was killed. At the time, I thought, what an evil shame "just a poor old disabled guy. Who would want to kill him?"
    Well, now I have turned cynical and very suspicious. Today, I would think: "Few people get killed for no reason...maybe he was a halcon?"
    BB: Because of the sum of similar stories you made me throw away my Boy Scout cap. I am not the same person I was when I started following BB.

    1. 1:01 it is not the idea that after a few too many callous murders you start accusing innocent people of being Halcones just because you are losing your marbles or have a loose nut or screw up there.
      If that comes to that, let criminals do their job, they need no help from the likes of you just because you turned into a "cynical mophaka".
