  1. Here we go, either this unleashes a wave of violence in Tijuana, not seen since Teo, or cooler heads will prevail, and sort out of the situation. Still don't think this was sanctioned, look at these guys, these are the guys Fernando Sanchez entrusts with the kidnapping of the family of a guy as powerful as El Mayo? These little dirty goons? Who knows what going on. Also, coincidence this happened? Or Mayo's or Engineer's influence in the police?

  2. Sinaloa ya esta en tijuana

  3. andeeee putos con el mayo no se juega, con esto mas con comprobado!

  5. jejejeje
    look at the lip on that NACO-traficante.

  6. This whole things sounds like a patsy was set up, but who knows? One thing I know for certain is that these guys that were captured will be killed in prison for sure, if they make it there!

  7. They missed that guys left eye.

  8. The paper 'El Sol De Tijuana' is reporting that these are El Inge's People that were cuaght. It will be Intersting to see if he really gave these orders?

  9. While kidnapping is a terrible scourge on Mexico, these women all benefit from El Mayo's activities. Maybe we need to start turning some of their tactics around and arrest all known family members of cartel leaders as accessories to give them a taste of what they are putting people through. Only then will they think twice before acting.

    Hit them where it hurts. They have enough money, so a few million isn't so important, but their wives and children?

  10. El Mayo is going to have these two tortured and killed; the beating they received from the military will seem like a day at Disneyland in comparison to what awaits these two losers.

  11. How is it that they can find these girls, but can't find Don Diego?

  12. What a coincidence that these two were captured and the family rescued. Something smells fishy here.

  13. Another victory for the Sinaloa Cartel... oh wait the Calderon administration... I am sure the CDS made the homework and told the military were they where...

  14. The whole event sounds like a HUGE "PR" stunt from the Sinaloa Cartel!! They are great at using the media and to paint a different picture of themselves. Think about it, the cartels have been getting a lot of heat for delving into other rackets ie. Kidnapping, extortion, human smuggling and causing hell for the general public. This event would play great for the public to show them, that the cartel's family are at risk to the kidnappers and they themselves want to establish order to end this form of violence.

  15. This wasn't only the Military, this was Macho Prietos Gonzalos guys and the military working together to rescue the kidnapped. Mayo's presence and power will not go undetermined in Mexico. He has so many people under his influence.

  16. It was rumored family members of Benjamen Arellano were kidnapped in Sinaloa. I'm not sure if it's correct or not, but if so, could this be their response.(kidnapping "El Mayo's)

    What's odd is the news was not reported earlier in any sources (before the video which the neice says they were kidnapped on October 20th?) and they were rescued within days of the video being released.

  17. Did the niece and sister of el mayo go home freely after being released by the authorities? Not even keeping his family members in custody until they tell them where el mayo is? He is thought to be one of the most wanted criminal thugs in Mexico and the United States?

  18. Always skeptical:
    1) Jefe Diego still hasn't been located and rescued and these women were in a week + ?
    And jefe Diego is from the same party as Calderon.
    2) Why is it that everytime a rescue / hostage situation is solved,there is always drugs stached as well? It doesn't make sense: either it's a safe house to keep the hostage or a stash site. Not both.
    3) Of late there's always the ubiquitous Barret .50 sniper gun I wonder if it's the same specimen over and over just being propped for the pictures? None of the combats documented for the past years involve the use of snipers, nor these puny individuals look like they have the training and the body to work a gun like that.

    Go figure

  19. i'm still confuse what or how all went down one thing i know for sure the brave mexican army risk their lives one more time against another heartless cartel

  20. I guess in Tijuana this morning they hung banners telling El Mayo to send his people to fight, and that 'they' were not as 'common' as he thought. Also, they were in Culican to kill his family. Signed Ramon Arellano -From Hell.

    This is getting uglier every day, but still really suspsicous to me. Like someone above said, those are the kidnappers they entrusted with El Mayo's family? An important job? Two dirty henchmen in a dope spot?

  21. Oh no no, TIJUANA esta en sinaloa haha

  22. J, the banners were hung in Culiacan, not Tijuana. Goes to show that the AFO is stronger than most people think.

    Namas pa que vean el alcance del CAF, en Tijuana NUNCA se han puesto mantas de nadie que no sea de Tijuana, solamente las del CAF y cuando estaba el Teo.

    Pasado de vergas el desmadre.

  23. Damn, I'm sorry about that, I wondered why Rio Doce was covering it, and not AFN, local Tijuana news. This still doesn't feel right to me. When they sign the banners 'El Ingeinero', I'll believe it.

  24. According to Proceso, they were.

  25. So they have a few cells in Sinaloa, the arellanos are from sinaloa.CDS ownes mexicali and gaining ground in the baja. Just a matter of time before the Arellanos fall, Either the CAF shapes up or they will be wiped out, La Linea have put a better fight then the CAF. Manden a los ANTRAX, EL MACHO, EL 20, EL M1 Y M2,EL PEINADO, EL FANTASMA, EL FLACO, EL BRAVO. Pa acavar con los secuestradores y culeros del CAF. Sinaloa ya esta en tijuana, y sinaloa va por la plaza hahahahaha

  26. Uta madre, ya encontraron los magueras este blog...

  27. Unquestionably imagine that which you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on tthe internet the simplest thing to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked even as people
    consider worries that they just do not understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the higest and outlined out the entire
    thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be back tto get more. Thanks

  28. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe
    that you should write more on this topic, it may not
    be a taboo subject but typically folks don't speak about such subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!

  29. I do not know whether it's jyst me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your site.
    It appears as though some of the witten text
    on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment
    and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before.
    Appreciate it
