Gunmen Kill Police Chief in Morelos

Assailants gunned down a police chief in the central Mexican state of Morelos in an attack at a gas station, the state Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.
Three gunmen riding on a motorcycle shot Juan Manuel Zamudio, police chief of the municipality of Zacatepec, on Monday outside the small Morelos town of Galeana, local media reported.

Zamudio was rushed to a hospital in the nearby town of Jojutla, where he died minutes later of wounds to the face and abdomen, the state AG’s office.

Earlier Monday, seven gunmen were killed in a pre-dawn clash with Mexican federal police near the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos’ capital.

The incident began when subjects traveling in three vehicles ran a police checkpoint on the Mexico City-Cuernavaca highway, prompting the officers to give chase, the state AG’s office said in a statement.

The pursuit ended in the Las Animas housing development in the Cuernavaca suburb of Temixco, where seven suspects died in the ensuing gunbattle.

One police officer was wounded and a suspect who survived the shootout was arrested.

Police confiscated AR-15 and AK-47 assault rifles as well as the three vehicles, the state AG’s office said.

Morelos, which borders the Federal District (Mexico City), has been the scene in recent months of clashes pitting gunslingers from rival criminal gangs.

These latest killings come amid a wave of drug-related violence in Mexico, where 47,515 people were slain between Dec. 1, 2006 – when President Felipe Calderon was inaugurated – and last September in cartel turf wars and the gangs’ clashes with security forces, according to official figures.

Calderon militarized the struggle against the nation’s heavily armed, well-funded drug mobs upon taking office. The strategy has led to the killings and arrests of cartel kingpins, but the country’s murder total has grown every year.

Unofficial tallies published last month by independent daily La Jornada put the drug-war death toll at more than 50,000.

  1. The cartels are just pissed that there are still people out there who are honest and will not take their money to let them get away with murder and rape. We will have another Hero step up. The cartels made no victory with this. All they do is quicken their own end.

  2. Man..wat is happening..too much violence being spilled in Mexico....Wat is happening to our raza..I thpught we stick together...Sad just sad..

    1. Anonymous@1:47am,
      Those days of sticking together are over. Innocent people getting killed is sad.

  3. That's why the most dangerous job in the world (IMO), is to be a local police man in a drug controlled plaza! The DTOs kill police man with impunity like nothing! Unbelievabl that so many LEOs have lost their lives.

  4. Fuckin sad.Need more like him.I wonder if they wanted some payback,the fuckin rats.If we got no rules and order we got shit,we got chaos,i,m not a great police lover,but we need enforcers of the rules of a society to let gentle working family's and people in general to be able live their life without fear.As for La Raza,and all that shit.There is no brotherhood of man.Whatever Race.Don't be naive.

  5. Retaliation for the gunfight earlier. So - retaliate! Morelos authorities know who the bad guys are. Round 'em up and shoot 'em in the parking lot.

  6. For the last fucking time la raza stands for (the people or our people).
    Not race you can be afro philipino Irish Italian Spanish German meztizo or indo blood if you view your self as part of the Mexican people you are raza

  7. Greater effort by locals needs take place. We have to somehow create a grassroots effort to get people involved and stand up. I GIANT protest with people on the streets.

    I am just desperately trying to think this through. We as a nation, as a race, as a human race need to fight this.

    I know I don't give anything new here. I only feel a tremendous sadness at what we are in danger of loosing.

    We need to get mad and loose our fear of doing what's right.

    We need a HERO who can lead us by example and inspire our souls. And we need to protect him as well...

  8. And then a hero comes along,with the strength to carry on.Where is my hero?What about,John Wayne?Did you know he used to to poke his fireplace with his dick?We can dig him up?Charlton Heston?He did it in El Cid.Errol Flynn,swashin his buckle and swingin his lash?Nah,cant dig him up.I know,Emiliano Zapata,but don't know where he is?Got it,Gen Rodolfo Fierro,a mean motherfucker,who just murks your ass if you get in his way.I,ll be the Fierro to his Villa.
