Mexico City: Mass Robbery to NFL fans outside the Azteca stadium

Mica for Borderland Beat from Yucatan Times

The fans were victims of armed robbery at the bridge that connects the Azteca Stadium with the Calzada de Tlalpan. The delinquents took cell phones, wallets, and in some cases even their  shoes.

CDMX (Agencies) – At least 100 fans, mainly from other states of the Republic and foreigners, faced Mexico City delinquency at the exit of the game between the Kansas City Chiefs vs the de Los Ángeles Chargers at the Azteca Stadium.

Those fans were victims of armed robbery at the bridge that connects the Azteca Stadium with the Calzada de Tlalpan. The delinquents took their cell phones and wallets, and some cases even their tennis shoes.

In an operation that supposedly grouped more than three thousand police officers implemented by the Secretary of Citizen Security of the capital did nothing to inhibit several gangs of assailants, especially young people and women who blended amongst the fans taking advantage of the moment.

Joel Williams an American expat living in CDMX who attended the game, was one of the victims of theft of his cell phone, and although he identified the perpetrator and reported him to several police officers, they alluded that it was very difficult to stop the thief and let him escape.

John Michael Smith, a tourist from Kansas City, United States, was stripped of his wallet, cell phone and tennis shoes in the same place. Complaints to police intensified when the game ended, without any operation to arrest those responsible for the assaults.

 The Secretariat of Citizen Security of Mexico City (SSC-CDMX) proudly said that no complaint was filed for the “alleged” thefts suffered by fans at the start or end of the NFL game between the Kansas Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers at the Azteca Stadium.

“The SSC did not receive any complaint for theft or any major incident, and the District Attorney’s Office in the mayor’s office also did not make any inquiry or record for dispossession of belongings before, during, or after the game of the NFL” said the capital dependence through a statement.
Except that most of the people who were assaulted left Mexico city the next day in order to return to their homes. Some of the people interviewed in the place, mentioned that Claudia Sheinbaum´s security operation was a joke.

When asked about filing a “denuncia”, most of the people affected said: “For what? Nothing will happen… most likely the cops are colluded with the robbers”

  1. I was at the game and even was drinking for a couple hours in neighborhood right outside the stadium. Also stayed at my buddy's house in Huixquilucan aka whiskytown in Edomex and in the city en Pedregal de San Nicolas. No problems at all. Everybody was super nice, the food was bomb and the girls were beautiful.

    2. 5:03 LOL same ol same ol . I hear it all the time when people say "no , Mexico isnt that dangerous I never have any problem" . There have always been people who traveled in Mexico and there have always been a high danger level there than in the USA . There are many factor that contribute to it . Wont name them many of them because they are so politically incorrect to say . One big one is and has always been corruption within the police . Very often , if not most of the time , they are in on it .

  2. It goes without saying that anytime you attend an event in Mexico City there are precautions one can take to mitigate the lack of security. DO NOT wear and/or bring the following articles while attending said events. Pants, shirt, hat, belt,
    shoes, sunglasses, watch, jewelry, wallet, cell phone, loose change, and lastly bubble gum. If you MUST wear shoes remove the shoe laces. It will make it easier for the thieves to get your shoes off when getting robbed. It's fairly safe to wear socks and undewear. Oh yeah - it's not a bad idea to have a poem written by AMLO tucked in your underwear as well. You can read it to the thieves in hopes that they may turn from a life of crime and become your best friend. Be safe.

    2. Just like in chicago. But Mexico is a hardcore place to visit. Chicago playa will just shot you. Mexica. Cartel will remove your head or put you in a barrell of acid. You pick.

    3. Always got the guy who compares Chicago crime with Mexico crime. Probably happens in London and Madrid too dumbass
      Chicago made chapo public enemy number one because of the crimes being committed in the city because of him. So Chicago crime is related to the corruption of Mexicans.

    1. I totally agree. I always wanted to study in Mexico, and possibly move there later in life. But I’m scared now 🙁 it’s hard to know how bad it really is.

  4. Chivis I had a feeling, when I saw the upcoming gave last week, that after reading countless articles on BB, something is bound to happen, with the people, that went to the game. There is no news on the US side, of robberies at stadium, BB keeps us better informed, than other news outlet.

    2. Let's see AMLOS reaction when the NFL decides to pull all games in their country.
      What happens when people who depend on these events for money? Probably join in on the criminal activities for financial purposes.

  15. Random note: Michael Davis of the chargers is Mexican/African American who loves playing in Mexico. His Mexican mother taught him spanish since he was able to speak. He is fluent.

    His body is filled with tats of prominent historical Mexican persons

    see here "chargers CB Michael Davis' Mexican heritage is a major part of his life"

  16. The people of Mexico should carry knives and everyone should stab anyone carrying a gun up the ass until their arm gets tired. Not allowed guns? A thousand people running after you with knives is a lot more scary.
