  1. so where is Casarrubias Salgado Sidronio now? the article said he WAS at that typo or he's not there anymore?

  2. So, the ayotzinapos were attacking guerreros unidos in their turf without weapons, and the police had to defend the guerreros unidos turf from the biig baaad students of the guerrilla school and part time drug traffickers, wbo armed with tin cans were asking for money on the streets and hijacking buses to crash on the Latin oamericana tower but wanted to get it on with maria de los angeles first...
    --Too much BS the pgr can arrest or kill thousands of suspects, but they will never arrest the true guilty parties because they are CORRUPT and puppets of the federal governme t satraps, maria de los angeles was never scared of going to angel aguirre rivero's hideaways I am sure she would have accomodated 50 students easy...
    --no investigation by the PGR is to be believed

  3. Of all the people arrested and not one snitch of were the bodys are at THINK! The 43 students missing is a hoax someone would of snitched by now it takes over 100 people to cover up a murder of 43

    1. 7:32 ...and a lot more that 4 guys to burn 43 bodies to ashes overnight, a lot of diesel, a lot of tires and a lot of wood...
      And even many many more pendejos to believe the bullshit generated by the party of the terror, torture, murder, plunder, kill, disappear...and lie about all of it...

    2. You are right that they have arrested a shit load of people and no bodies of the deceased yet? If you didn't have everybody over in Mexico running around with their heads covered like the Federales, Army and even Autodefensas then more than likely you could uncover whose behind alot of shit and maybe even a hidden missing person or two also. In the U.S. Only when an arrest warrant is being carried out so officers cover their faces. Not while patrolling the streets.

    3. What ? More than one of the people involved said the same thing. They were killed, burned then dumped in the river. Basta,

    4. 7:32 you are absolutely correct...its hard enough to keep 1 or 2 ppl to keep a secret but 111..Not with the way i hear about ppl being tortured in mexico..At least one person would be talking here.

    5. The pgr tortured more than 111 people, got thousands of confessions, some very detailed, some true confirmed about other murders that produced dozens of bodies, none of them ayotzinapos...
      --the pgr could not torture one single ayotzinapo body out of the suspects...
      "The problem with human rights commissions is that the worst offenders learn to do a better jobs" of disappearing people, less at a time, leave no traces, legal training, better protection from the armed forces and the government, all we can do is blame it all on the Commander in Chief and his Cabinet, the trials can start for the disappearances until the 43 ayotzinapos appear, that happened to pinochet, and he and his sicarios started talking, offer amnesty to the soldiers that just obeyed orders, but get their commanders, before 40 years pass by...

    6. 12:53 basta? All the confessions did not produce one body, the torture did not work
      And it is time to look somewhere else for guilty parties; fack where they were dumped burned whatever, the governmen is lying...

    7. Let me explain, no military element would have done NOTHING it had been narcso and sicarios attacking the students, there were orders there to not get involved it was the federales from peña nieto and his military, "basta"? Not, not until the 43 disappeared the mexican federal government kidnapped return, how? That is their motherfacking problem...

    8. 7:32 callate baboso, you are very smart, and very late...
      --by now it is not about if the 43 even existed, the federal government and the military, the police, the PGR, the pinchi presidente, everybody has accepted they existed and are disappeared...
      -- the only unknown is who took them and what they did with them, but it had to be the federal government to disappear them, C4 records, supress testimony, plant evidence, supress evidence, change military reports, forbid foreign assistance, deny global warming and all the rare statements about historic truths when we have not even started scratching the thick shell of lies regarding ayotzinapa's vile pack of lies and cover-ups, and now you call it a hoax? STFU...

  4. ah yes, the pgr generated fake text

  5. In the new files just put up on the internet by the PGR, you can see that the statements of the guys supposedly involved in the massacre are contradictory as to where the students were killed and how. One guy testified that they burned many at a DIFFERENT LOCATION than the Cocula dump. Obviously, they can't get their stories straight: Mexico missing case file shows some contradictions,

  6. Mencho almost got killed by cds in colima acording to blog del narco

  7. BB readers: so many of you have written to us about the supposed clash between mencho and chaps men leaving 20 dead in colima. I am not sure we should run the story, there are zero fotos or facts coming through. if you see some let us know

    1. That story of 20 dead has been shown to be false. Source: A. Hope tweet. Check comment thread.

      "Al parecer, es falsa la información sobre un enfrentamiento con 20 muertos en Colima."

    2. I don't think is true. I have been looking around for the article and I can't find anything real other than a few blogs saying that. No pictures either.

    3. yeah I think so also. I think we will pass. I did find the vids but they are from august.

  8. 111 arrested n not 1 has a clue on the 43? Hang them from there nuts !!!

  9. Ok; 111 arrested.

    How many convicted?

  10. Chivis is it true that there will b no extradition for larry hernandez ???

    1. That is what a couple of Mexican paper say, they say the atty won a delay of extradition. But if that was the case there should be a scheduled hearing. I ck the SB inmate case search and he is still in rancho cucomonga jail and no hearings pending and no bail. Mexican papers also made a big deal that his "wife" and mother were not allowed to see him, but it was every visitor not allowed as there was a high level lock down for some reason.

    2. When is larry going to put up or shut up in the prison fight for his ass, I hear there are a lot of tapes about prison fights for profit...

  11. The 43 students is a smoke screen by the cartels to knock off templarios and guerrero unidos while the mexican goverment is busy looking for the lost ark chapo and jalisco is moving more chiva up north

    1. Puro pedo y teatro, the federal government just trying to distract while they keep stealing everything from El DF, pinchis chilangos rateros mañosos y carteristas, watch it with your wallets...they are all pickpockets...

  12. El Mencho is protected by 50 Gallos (fighting cocks) thats why the call him el Senor de los Gallos ...R18 esta mas armado que los de Syria

  13. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah! No matter how many people it might take to "disappear" 43 other people in any country, only ten maybe 12 of them if its even really them will know what exactly happened to those disappeared persons! The rest of those involved only need to know that the enemy was taken cared of and disposed! Not the exact gruesome details of the victims fate or much less their bodies wareabouts! What this could mean is that for the most part most of these accused persons will serve little to no time in jail because their is no concrete evidence to hold them accountable for that particular crime. Even though people will gladly point to corruption as the reasons for most of these people not spending time in prison!
