Juarez Cartel Trains Beautiful Women as Sicarios

The armed wing of the Juarez drug cartel (La Linea), which operates on the border of Ciudad Juarez and El Paso is recruiting and training dozens of young, pretty women as sicarios (hired assassins), said a captured sicario hired by the criminal organization.

"They are beautiful teenagers, to deceive the enemy even more," said the suspected member of the organization of La Linea, Rogelio Amaya, to an investigative team of the federal Public Security Secretariat (SSP).

This criminal organization has between 20 and 30 women, mostly "pretty" between 18 to 30 years old, trained to kill, he said.

Amaya was arrested last week along with four other alleged members of La Linea, accused of killing two police officers in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, the most violent city in world.

These women, according to Amaya, are already part of the "commandos" of La Línea, to fight against the gunmen of the Sinaloa cartel for control of Ciudad Juárez, an important route for drugs, weapons and money to and from the US.

"Most of them are teenagers," said the sicario in a taped statement to a video camera. The detainee said he did not know the person that actually recruits them.

Yadira del Río Larios alias "La Güera" after being "presented" after her arrest on Nuevo Leon.

The women are trained by other members of the cell on its own fields of operations. They "accompany other sicarios" when performing a criminal act, said Amaya, 27 years of age.

From Sinaloa Cartel.

"They have already completed several jobs," he said. "They have long or short weapons (...) They are accompanied by men and they get out down to do the job. "

Sicaria apparently executed in Culiacan.

He explained in the La Línea each cell has several units: halcones(informants), sicarios and extortionists, and "no one can change into something different."

  1. Titts up, females die just like males,stupid ghetto kids,a sad waste.

  2. Anonymous 8.18.10 at 7:28 AM: I have no idea what you meant your comment.

    As to the article, I don't understand how nobody realizes that until education becomes a priority in Mexico, this kind of senseless ongoing violence will continue to thrive.

    And since so many are killing each other, younger kids will eventually replace them.

  3. You can't, or it's foolish and unrealistic to just throw around words like education in every topic like this. Education may play a part, but plenty of people who are 'educated' get into crime, in the US, Mexico, and all over the world. Look at the 'narco juniors' from CAF in the mid 90's, Alex Hododyan, these were privileged, fairly wealthy kids with good education, and they were doing the same, if not more as those that were recruited from Logan (neighborhood in San Diego). I don't know if you really know crime, and criminals firsthand, because to just throw the educated label out there makes no sense. I'm sure a lot of these low level types are undereducated, sure, but there will always be a pool of them to choose from, thats just the way it is. It sounds pretentious and naive to claim lack of education is the cause of this 'senseless violence'. Not to attack you personally, just describing the words.

  4. Anonymous 8-18-10 at 9:44 AM:

    It's the low level types, in your words, that are doing the dirty work for the 'educated narco juniors,' once again, in your words. It's very clear that organized crime in Mexico works the same as it does in the U.S. and anywhere else in the world, as a hierarchy.

    Granted, I simply comment to further generate the commentary on the blog and to propose questions that no one else cares to ask.

    Thus, if you notice, I don't complain about the senseless violence, because I obviously do not live in Mexico. I mostly comment about the lack of resources the Mexican government provides to the average or poverty stricken Mexican citizen.

    Do you question why so many migrants risk their lives in order to cross the U.S. border, the majority do it for a better life. Clearly something the Mexican government is not providing.

    What do you propose? Exterminating everyone involved with the drug cartels? Including, police officers, politicians, executives and so forth, please, don’t make me laugh (my stomach is sore from crunches).

    El Mayo said something during an interview with Proceso earlier this year, after his son was extradited; he mentioned that if he died tomorrow there would be an immediate replacement. For all it’s worth, that seems to be the history of every Mexican cartel: Someone dies or goes to prison (in the U.S. or Mexico), the surviving successor is promoted and it's a constant cycle, because they continue to recruit individuals, who probably don't have better opportunities in life.

    These guys are not dense; in fact, I'm going to go as far as saying that they're level of intellect, as far as analyzing, generating business (which includes their level of charisma and interpersonal skills), and leadership skills is far more excelled than most politicians and even executives. For instance, Guzman-Loera, he's supposedly somewhat illiterate and yet he has been making Forbes' list of the richest people in the world for the past couple of years.

    Do you wonder if a little a mini Chapo Guzma was thinking, back in grade school: "Hmm, my objective in life is to become one of Mexico's most notorious drug lords, and to top it off, I also want to make the FBI's most wanted list."

    No, he wasn't thinking that back then, he learned from others and in turn others are now learning from him.

    So, why does it seem better to live as a career criminal? They risk a lot, most importantly their freedom and their life and the safety of their family and loved ones. Yet, the risk is worth taking, why? Are there no other options?

    You many call me pretentious and naive, but YOU have not stated a feasible theory as to why Juarez is considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world and soon it will be a ghost town.

    And, for the record, the future of Mexico seems to be equally grim, because if Juarez becomes a ghost town, then the criminal activity will be displaced and disbursed, more so than it already has.

    My argument will always be education in order to cultivate the future and all the confirmation I need to support my argument is vividly on the Mexican news every evening.

    So, Genius, what do you propose? Or are you more comfortable going back to complaining about the 'senseless violence' in Mexico, because everyone one is doing it, since it's the easy thing to do.

    So you know, I'm ready for round two.

  5. That post is a little all over the place, but I can respond to most of it. I think you misunderstood my references to the 'narco juniors', they were doing the same kinds of things that the uneducated Logan crew were doing, one wasn't necessarily leading the other, guys from Logan had upper level positions, just like the narco juniors, and people from both groups were just expendable (more expendable) soldiers.

    Moving on, organized crime is not going away. It just isn't, that's there is to it, it's not going away in Mexico, US, Europe, etc, etc. There will be no extermination of the cartels, nor will there be something that will dissuade people who want to work with them. I don't know if Chapo wanted to be the most wanted man in Mexico, when he was in 5th grade, but I'm certain when he got involved in trafficking he wanted to ascend to the top and stay there. I will concede that economic conditions and other similar issues are the reason why people come to the US for a better live, and certainly these things need to improve in Mexico, for everyone in the countries benefit, and more options need to be created, sure. The US has criminals just like Chapo, because they will always be there, people who are criminally minded, or inclined. I will also concede that esp. in these last two years or so, unemployment, economic conditions, poverty, has most likely led to people joining the cartels out of desperation, but for the most part these people make a choice, and are willing participants. Educated, undereducated, people, cars, drugs, la fama, and the chance to be a leader (chapo) will win against legitimate legal lifestyle a majority of the time. But again, I will admit there needs to be more options in Mexcio, everywhere really, but that won't change things or slow down people working for cartels.

    Lastly, Juarez is a war zone....because it is the center of a war. Five years ago, and 15 years ago under Amado Carillo it was a different place. Chapo trying to take the plaza, and Vicente Carillo Fuentes defending it (with increasingly desperate measures) are what have made Juarez what it is today. It will take a long time to recover, but it is not just some hell hole of a place, with no education, jobs, etc. For example, look at Tijuana. During the fall of 2008, and a lot of 2009 there was an unseen amount of gruesome violence, as bad as Juarez, when the war was over, or mostly won, things have come back to 'ok'. Not great, but the point is the war is to blame for the violence, it is the main cause.

  6. Anyone working for the drug cartels has different reasons why they joined them. Get paid, have a business / love relationship with drug traffickers, access to drugs for free, live in a lavish lifestyle, own a weapon, really anything. Maybe, being forced to work with the drug cartels? Some of the women, who did not want to work for the drug cartels anymore, were being threatened or get killed if they escaped underworld of criminal drug business, but They knew that and they asked for it.

  7. Education OK some lessons are deadly Mx lesson is robbing public coffers eventually leads to a poverty sustained criminal class which in Mx is almost overwhealming the govt. Best case is reform of govt top to bottom financial accountability allowing $ to fully reach public services--Education,law enforcment,Roads,etc The upper class has little interest, but they to would benefit. Hope it happens in less than 100 yrs.

  8. Mexicans break the law when they get caught smuggling themselves into the U.S. They have every reason why they did not want to live in Mexico and went crossing the border, but it is one of the biggest countries in the world. They can always find a nicer and safer place in Mexico - no matter if it is a small or big town. Right now, the drug cartels are NOT controling the whole country, of course they have invaded some of the towns and states in the country. I would be in a big shocking if they took over Mexico fully.

  9. Part I, as follows:

    J (8-18-10 at 2:56 PM):

    I’m sorry, I meant to respond earlier, but I was visiting my nieces and nephew at my sister’s house. I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to give a 2-year-old play-doh, but I’m still taking it out of my hair.

    Back to more important issues, I like your response and I respect your opinion. And you don’t have to concede regarding the issues you mentioned, in fact, we both agree on specific points regarding the lack of resources and education in Mexico.

    Regarding organized crime in the U.S., we probably have different opinions. For instance, I strongly disagree with the following statements:

    “Moving on, organized crime is not going away. It just isn't, that's there is to it, it's not going away in Mexico, US, Europe, etc, etc.”

    “There will be no extermination of the cartels, nor will there be something that will dissuade people who want to work with them.”

    “The US has criminals just like Chapo, because they will always be there, people who are criminally minded, or inclined.”

    “Educated, undereducated, people, cars, drugs, la fama, and the chance to be a leader (chapo) will win against legitimate legal lifestyle a majority of the time.”

    “Lastly, Juarez is a war zone....because it is the center of a war. Five years ago, and 15 years ago under Amado Carillo it was a different place.”

  10. Part II, as follows:

    The only objection I have with regard to your first statement is that you’re implying that organized crime will predominate no matter what and I don’t believe that’s entirely true. For the most part, the FBI and DEA do a better job at investigating organized crime and the Department of Justice in the U.S. does an excellent job prosecuting criminal cases.

    As you may know, the majority of the bosses of the five families that make up the Mafia in New York are all locked up in federal prisons and most of the guys underneath them, the underbosses, don’t last longer than 5 years on their own without getting caught up in a federal prosecution. The guys from the Irish Mob, are out and they can’t get involved in anything because everyone knows what they look like, so instead they all wrote books and I read all of them (good reads, lost of info), except for Flemmi and Connolly (the FBI agent who was charged with murder in a trial in Miami last year), the only one that’s out is James “Whitey” Bulger (who continues to be the FBI’s second most wanted man after bin Laden), Colombia’s Fabio “Fabito” Ochoa Vasquez (the son, not the father) was convicted to 30 years in 2003. Let’s see, who else? Oh! Another notable extradition, was the Gulf cartel’s very own Osiel Cardenas-Guillen (who the BB addressed a couple of weeks ago - excellent read by the way).

    My point is, that yes, organized crime will be a constant in any society (according to the Durkheim’s theory), but it changes, because society evolves (mostly due to technology) and everything is sensationalized now in days, even the Zetas use technology (Youtube videos) to instill fear, which is quite unfortunate. We’re not living in the Luciano, Capone or even Giancana days, and the new trend is mostly white collar crimes, like Ponzi schemes, but I believe the FBI has done a better job at infiltrating criminal organizations across the U.S., essentially it’s a lot more difficult to get away with something for a long time. So any organization can be crippled long enough at any point and that instability is an advantage.

    Your second statement, I believe it’s possible to corner any organization and decrease it’s influence and power, the U.S. has done it, any government can do it. And although it may be difficult, it’s definitely not impossible.

  11. 9:44AM
    "I mostly comment about the lack of resources the Mexican government provides to the average or poverty stricken Mexican citizen."

    The poverty stricken Mexican citizen is that way because his possessions are taken from him by the greedy govt. The government need only stop the criminals (themselves included) and allow the poor people their safety, their enterprise, and their property. When the govt owns everthing you are a slave and right now there is a war between the masters and pretenders to the throne.

    "My argument will always be education in order to cultivate the future and all the confirmation I need to support my argument is vividly on the Mexican news every evening"

    It's not the level of education, it's the level of culture. One may not know how to read or right but possess complete understanding of right and wrong, honor and shame - one's fealty to family, God, and country.

    To the extent that educators reinforce these basics of civility education will make a difference.

  12. Part III, as follows:

    Your third statement, I disagree, I think there’s an appeal (easy money and an abundance of power), but if a lot of these guys wouldn’t have a chance to get involved at such a young age (when you’re most vulnerable), they would probably think twice about what they are getting themselves involved in.

    I came across a comment, on a Spanish article about Vicente Zambada-Niebla’s case, that I thought was excellent, in Spanish the person stated: “Prefiero ser pobre y libre, que rico y muerto, o vivo y encarcelado.” Translation: “I’d rather be poor and free, than rich and dead, or alive and incarcerated.”

    Dead or incarcerated is pretty much the kind of retirement they can expect in the future and it’s not too late to convey that reality to the younger men that become enthralled by the lifestyle.

    Finally, your last statement, it’s a fact that El Chapo and El Viceroy are creating this war, but who is responsible for the warriors involved in this kind of warfare?

    Let me give you a hint: The government that was negligent enough to stand by, hoping they would kill each other, but instead it backfired. And now everyone is outraged that there are kidnappings and that the Zetas are extremely violent. Sure, everyone is upset now, but what happened in the past decade while this was unraveling? And what will happen to Mexico within the next decade?

    Think about the mini Chapos in grade school right now, potentially following in his footsteps. The president can declare a “war” on the drug cartels all day long, but he’s not going to get anywhere if he’s neglecting other important issues, especially education. At this point, he sounds like a broken record and he should seriously consider firing his speechwriter, because he’s beginning to emulate Bush’s speeches about the U.S.’s “war” on terror.

    You never mentioned a more hopeful future for Mexico, you only confirmed what many people feel, that there’s no way out and there’s nothing left to hope for. That’s not good enough and I would never, in a million years, settle for that kind of mentality.

  13. "Education" when speaking of sociological variables, is a reference to playing the odds:

    6 - 11 yrs - probably a janitor, and if more industrious the odds of being Zeta material are very high.

    12yrs - probably a checkout clerk at a grocery store, maybe a butcher at that store, cook, assembly line worker; odds of being a zeta not as high

    13 - 15 yrs - maybe a banker, a school teacher, business owner, technician, tradesman like mason, etc.; odds of being a zeta are nowhere as high as before.

    16+ yrs - Doctor, Attorney, Engineer, business executive or corp manager; Odds of being a zeta fall drastically.

    Thats all. Just the odds. There's always exceptions...

    So what are the odds be that a country full of educated professionals (that can demand a good wage and therefore can lobby politicians) would allow a class of poor and therefor easily corruptible cops, politicians, and other public servants? Lower rather than higher...

    Its like betting on the ponies; just the odds...

  14. Yikes! Whats with the book writing?

    Just FYI, I scroll right through all those...

    btw...get her e-mail MENSO! Its there for everyone to see!

  15. Funny, but it's more like lengthy essays, not even THIS close to a book.

  16. And I wouldn't call J un menso, porque el unico menso aqui is the one that's scrolling straight through comments.

    Sorry, but I'm advocate of reading.

    1. You should just focus on child bearing and cooking. No one is taking a woman's opinion on drug cartels, especially one who snuggled away safely on the less dangerous side of the border.

  17. I think there's a bigger picture to all of this that is going on. I mean, there is a lot of drug trafficking in the US as well, but it's not as loud as in Mexico. Also, there's the heroine trafficking going on from Afghanistan to Russia, and millions are dying, but there is little news on it. Therefore, the happenings in Mexico are no different to what is happening around the world, but chaos is being allowed in Mexico for a bigger reason than just trafficking....

  18. Its Called Shock Doctrine, We re all Distracted .
    No one really sees what is going on, and why
    it was implemented.

  19. Does anyone know someone down there to talk to about joining in the fight against these bastards? I mean Kids dead, old people dead, women dead, I can hit a paint can at 800 yards and am currently feeling that my talents are being wasted on them when there are so many arrogant criminali wannabees south of the border who think they are badass because they massacre unarmed innocents. I suppose it makes them feel really important and powerful. I would really like to introduce them to my .338
    If anyone knows how i can go down there and help out the federales i beg you please!!!!! give me a number!!

  20. And who would you shoot? You know that only the army wears uniforms, don't you. Everybody else looks like an ordinary Mexican. If somebody gives you a number to call, don't use it because the only organization looking for recruits from anywhere today are the Zetas.

  21. Beautiful?! HA! These are hideous monsters. Even on the outside. Attitude contorts a person physically.They are thoroughly, VULGAR.

  22. is this the same "la guera" from other articles posted here on BB? A while back (may be march/april 2010) a letter was posted on this site that spoke of la guera in tampico...anyone know anything? BB?

  23. that is for believing all the bullshit that goes on the latin channels of novelas where the pretty girls are the hitmen of the cartels...this bitches were better of working in a titty bar than making a fool of themselves with the cartels.

  24. The blood won't stop until they legalize narcotics in the US and MEXICO. This is part of the procedure to make people see and understand that it's about that time, because there are billions of dollars awaiting to be moved around from accounts to accounts. People will eventually get the point.

    EL 24 de juaritoz

  25. I cant believe half of the shit I just read (bla bla bla bullshit) from a bunch of fake know it all's?? I mean do you peaple even understand what all of this is really about,I dont think you do... Its about survival! Its about providing for ones loved ones wether its in a lawfull way or in an illeagal way.Thats what one does to survive in Juares!! You have to live there to feel the desperation of these peaples lives,to know first hand at what its like to live without any comforts as simple as clean drinking water. So do me and yourselves an educated favor and just place your nonsense bickering right back in your hotdog holester's because unless your going to help or do something about it all your doing blowing smoke.. AND WITH THAT IM OUT JUST AS I CAME IN,APAULLED.. BIG D de AZTLAN .................

  26. Our own government does business with cartels, of course is not going away.

  27. I like the "bla bla bla bullshit"! You guy's are talking out of very privileged positions. The gray and darker sides of survival will never be stopped by political systems they are part of it. In the States, Mexico and everywhere else. For an individual to survive at any level where it becomes really dangerous you need a lot of cognitive skills, these same skills can be used to learn almost anything. Criminal minds exist all around us, many of you don't want to see them! Watch out for the psychotic they are the ones that are working with out borders and reflection.

  28. You people are complaining about it but tell me what you do to stop it buying your kids a violent video game a toy gun fighting whit your brothers sisters and parents this is not what we do it what people teach us to do first check what you are teaching to your own kids then take a look of what the world become to be since we are "free" check our governments those are the bigest mafias,/ cartels the problem is not in the ones who sale it cuz we do it as a surviving but ask why people buy it. when you said it's just weed that's not wrong nothing is gonna happend alcohol and tabaco are more dangerous think about how many young people were kill so you can enjoy your weed fuckers ignorants study people you not know nothing it's not violence it's a life style

  29. In all likelyhood, sure, indeed she does. ;)
