Seven Mexican Cops Arrested for Killing Marine

Seven municipal police officers were arrested in connection with the kidnapping, torture and murder of a marine in the eastern state of Veracruz, the Mexican Navy Secretariat said.

Three marines were abducted, tortured and murdered recently, with two of the killings occurring in Veracruz and one in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, the secretariat said last week.

The three unidentified marines were involved in operations targeting drug traffickers and other criminal organizations.

The police officers were arrested in connection with the killing of a marine whose body was found on June 11 near the Tuxpan River in Veracruz, the secretariat said.

The navy has participated actively in the war on drugs, with marines involved in the December 2009 killing of drug lord Arturo Beltran Leyva.

Gunmen later murdered several relatives of marine Melquisedet Angulo Cordova, who died in the shootout in which Beltran Leyva was killed on Dec. 16, 2009, in Cuernavaca, the capital of Morelos state.

The gunmen, all suspected of being members of the Los Zetas drug cartel, killed Angulo Cordova’s mother, two brothers and aunt.

The marine’s relatives were murdered on Dec. 21, 2009, at the family’s home in Paraiso, Tabasco, just hours after their loved one was laid to rest with full military honors.

Calderon has deployed tens of thousands of soldiers and Federal Police officers across the country to combat drug cartels and other criminal organizations.

The anti-drug operation, however, has failed to put a dent in the violence due, according to experts, to drug cartels’ ability to buy off the police and even high-ranking officials.


  1. No Mexico doesnt need the death penalty... DERP!

    Fucking IDIOTS are their own worst enemy...

  2. These "police officers" should be hung, and their immediate families too. No remorse, no regrets. End the notion that they can get away with it. They can't.

  3. I'm sure these guys aren't getting slapped around and are being treated with the highest respec by the marines... haha

    Same things happens here, asshole. What you brag about so much, get back to cleaning toilets, stupid!

  5. and usually before they post these criminal in front of the press....they usually get an ass kicking or two by the law enforcement.

  6. WOW im guessing that could be a possible consequence for any one who participates in the arrest or killing of a top kingping,like arturo beltran leyva.That shows the amount of power and influence the goverment lets them achieve.

  7. The Zetas own the state of Veracruz. If you hear of a soldier or fed got killed it was the Zetas. If you hear a Municipal Police chief got killed then it was the CDG for working for the Zetas. All municipal police work for them or they and there families get killed. They call them Polizetas.

  8. It is the Mexican government that is waging a proxy war on behalf of the U.S. government against Mexicans. I hope the government loses. It is government that are the real criminals, the other side is merely meeting a market demand. When you attack business, you deserve what you get.
