Dozens of Catholic Priests murdered under Calderon-EPN administration

by Lucio for Borderland Beat- this is a republished post from March 2015-see post of today of two priest murdered this week by using this link
Mexico is the most dangerous nation for priests in the world

Catholic Priests, are among the bravest drug war heroes of Mexico, and they are being killed at an escalating and appalling rate. Few are reporting the full story, or are reporting the numbers inaccurately, including the Catholic Church.

The fact that Mexico is one of the most dangerous places on earth for reporters is well known, what is far less written about is the violence perpetrated against  Catholic Priests.

Mexico is officially now the most dangerous place on earth for Catholic Priests.  While long in the top group of most dangerous places for priests, Mexico is now its leader. For the sixth consecutive year, Mexico tops the list in murders and disappearances of Catholic priests in Latin America.

What must be established, murders and kidnappings of priests receive little attention outside regional reporting hubs.  It is a perplexing, how a story of dozens of  priests being murdered by cartels during  2 administrations goes unrecognized, or for example, a story  about 5 priests being killed in November–December of 2013 in Tamaulipas and Veracruz,  is but a tiny blip on the media radar. 

Inaccuracy of numbers
It must be pointed out, that priests are kidnapped, often from churches or rectories, but  the "disappearance" never budges  from  being labeled as such,  to being counted as “killed” or "dead", unless there is a body. Those  kidnapped and not found, are  not recorded on a drug war casualty list. 

In fairness, neither is any other group of people, which renders summations weak and without merit. 

 Nonetheless, the point being, as the title of this post says;  ' "dozens" of priests killed during the Calderon-Peña Administrations', astonishing in of itself, still is an accurate tally. 

Then there is misreporting, much like municipalities are known to ascribe to, in attempting to lower the rate of violence.

For example, with four days remaining in 2012, in the state of Michoacán, padre Santiago Álvarez Figueroa, vanished. Although he had received dozens of death threats leading up to his disappearance, Authorities were quick to discount he had fallen prey to organized crime, instead this story was offered, “we think he was in an automobile accident”, this was reported by Jesus Reyes Garcia of the governor’s office, who later revised the version when the vehicle of the priest was not found and parishioners rejected the account. 

What is known, Father Santiago, 27, had just finished celebrating Mass in the tiny town of Jacona, he entered his car and headed home to his hometown of Paredones. He called one of the nuns, advising  he was on his way back home.  

He never arrived.

Reyes is now incarcerated for collusion with organized crime, he was temporary governor while Governor Fausto Vallejo Figueroa was in the U.S. getting a new liver.  Vallejo Figueroa resigned on the heels of the controversy of his son’s arrest.  His son known as ‘El Gerber’, was arrested after a Tutateca video of him with the Caballeros Templarios leader surfaced.

Santiago’s  body was never found.  He is not listed as murdered, he is with the other priests in perpetual limbo on the “disappeared” list. His Bakersfield, California, family, has no doubt he was murdered by organized crime, most likely the culprits are Caballeros Templarios.

Torture, including rape prior to murder

Organized crime killings of priests are particularly brutal.

The recovered bodies of priests depict odious, barbaric torture and killing. Decapitation, dismemberment, incineration, strangulation, drowning, torture and rape are the methods used against priests in additional to the “conventional” killing methods of gunshot, or stabbings.

Take the case of  Padre John Ssenyondo of Chilapa, Guerrero.  The Ugandan priest loved his adopted country of Mexico, and wanted better for its people. He had lived in Guerrero for 5 years, preaching to the most impoverished if Mexican populous.  And by all accounts his parishioners loved the outgoing priest with the quick wide smile.

But they also worried about his safety.  For his sermons had become strong and firm against organized crime.  Many think that was his downfall.  

In April of 2014, Padre John disappeared while traveling back from conducting mass (service) in the mountains of Guerrero.  His disappearance went almost without notice, if not for the discovery of a mass grave.

The Catholic Church was quiet about the case, the regional rector of the cathedral, Javier Casarrubias Carballido,  never commented on the missing Priest.
Parishioners spoke among themselves, a persistent rumor was that a cartel leader asked the priest to baptize his child, and the request was denied.  That scenario seems unlikely, since in the Catholic religion, the sins of the father would be deemed irrelevant to the child.
The other scenario is the more likely of the two, the priest would not heed to warnings to  halt sermons against organized crime. He had begun drawing the link of local officials and organized crime.

A mass grave was discovered in the outskirts of Chilapa, Chilapa is about 30 miles east of Chilpancingo, the state capital.

The remains of Padre John were among the 13 bodies buried in a mass narco fosa. The bodies were decapitated and dismembered, and incomplete. Padre John’s skull and various other bones were discovered, he was identified by dental records.

Why are priest targeted?

Long held rumors of priests ingratiating themselves towards organized crime groups for financial gain, benefiting their parishes, is persistent, but inaccurate.  That would be the exception not the norm.  Organized crime regards priests as the enemy. The following lists a few of the reasons why.

Sermons: outspoken priests, who preaching against organized crime, and the collusion of government officials and police.  Organized crime groups prefer to remain under the radar, and feel threatened by those who may encourage an organized backlash against their activities.  Same can be said about municipal governments and police. 

Assisting Economic Migrants:   Migrants, mostly from Central America, are highly exploited by cartels, and are at the core of narco occupational diversification.  For example the sex trade, kidnapping, extortion, human trafficking, and forcible recruitment into cartel work including becoming sicarios (hitmen).  Those who shelter migrants and advocate for migrant issues, interrupt business, resulting in bottom line impact.  Catholic clergy are the operators of 95% of migrant shelters.  They are also their greatest advocacy group, in and out of Mexico.

Who can ever forget the images of 72 migrants slaughtered in Tamaulipas in 2010?  72 human beings, executed for the crime of refusing recruitment into the Los Zetas cartel.

Throughout Mexico Catholic Priests create a safe haven for migrants.  Priests provide migrants shelter, assistance, medical care and other forms of care.  Cartels consider this an intrusion into their source of revenue.  Priests who run the migrant shelters such as Casa Migrante’s are constantly being threatened.  

Catholic based Rehab Centers:Alcohol and drug rehab centers have become fewer in number than two years ago.  There were a string of attacks by cartels, resulting in the destruction of centers or mass killings of inhabitants.  19 killed in a Chihuahua rehab in photo at left.

Cartels exploit the centers, extorting and forcibly recruit sicarios and drug traffickers, often death threats are realized when a rehab group resists. Others are killed for failing to pay for drugs or betraying a dealer.

Supporting Autodefensa Movements:  Autodefensa groups are organized as a union consisting of 13 states.  Some priests are  targeted because of their support of these groups, or direct involvement.
Refusing requests:  In the narco world,  it is notable that there are large groups of Santería followers. Although the religious based cult is syncretized with Catholicism and Mesoamerican, it is strictly condemned by the religion.  Small “Santeria Chapels” are erected that seem to pop up overnight, that “honor” the Santeria offshoot Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte.

While there are millions of good people, often the marginalized people of society, which practice the “religion”, with no intention to harm others.  It is organized crime that have taken it to a sinister level, thinking that Santa Muerte will protect them from harm or imprisonment while they conduct criminality, including murder.
                                          This Santa Muerte chapel was bulldozed in Allende
                                                 This Acuña chapel was  destroyed in 2013

In 2013, Tamaulipas and Veracruz priests began receiving demands that Catholic altars in churches feature statues of Santa Muerte. Going further that masses be said in honor of Santa Muerte.  Parishioners say It is because of the refusals that some priests disappeared.

Extortion: Cartels treat priests/churches no differently than any other business in Mexico, they too are victims of extortion.

Three padres in the cross-hairs
Mexican priests are as a group vulnerable to attack, but there are priests that are standouts in the field of danger.

Gregorio Lopez, better known as 'Padre Goyo' Michoacán 
Padre Goyo, is arguably the most outspoken priest in Mexico today.  Of the 7 Apatzingán Michoacán priests whose life have been threaten in 2014, he tops the list of most reviled by organized crime, and corrupt government, both municipal, state and federal.

A champion of the autodefensa movement, he was directly involved with the group. The bullet proof vest wearing priest is a close friend and ally to the imprisoned autodefensa leader and social activist, Dr Manuel Mireles.

In 2014, Goyo’s brother, “Luis Jerónimo”, was kidnapped by the Caballeros Templarios, with a message for his priest brother….. CT kidnappers sent a warning to Goyo, to back off his involvement in the AD movement, and foremost, no further complaints about their activity and conflicts to the press and on the pulpit. For his part, if anything Goyo stepped up his game, on speech tours of the US and contacting U.S. government officials about the run-away violence and corruption.

Recently, Padre Goyo appeared before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and met with New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez,  on the last leg of his US tour,
“We in Mexico, are terrorized and are governed by organized crime,” he charged.
Luis Jerónimo, 39, was released after a few days of captivity and then decided to leave Mexico and appeared before the immigration authorities at the border crossing of San Ysidro, California to seek asylum. 

However, instead, the immigrant was sent to a detention center , where he  remained for nearly a year without being granted bail and exposed to immediate deportation. 

"It is inhuman what they did with this immigrant is a clear example of what happens when it is not well known law that confers asylum. He was a perfect candidate for his release in a few weeks and with a minimum bond "said Alex Galvez, immigration attorney who secured the release of Jerome.
Bishop Raul Vera López -Coahuila
Vera López is an avowed advocate for human rights and social justice. He is another priest who sets aside his personal safety in favor of expressing his views against abuse of power, corruption, absence of the rule of law and violations of human rights. He is an advocate for the marginalized people of Mexico, bucking the Vatican, he publicly welcomed gays into the parish.   

He opposes the fact that, although Mexico is not really a poor country, more than half of its 110 million people live below the poverty line.  He stresses they also increasingly live in fear. Waves of murders and violence have followed in the wake of criminal cartels’ brutal warfare to control the cartel drug trade.   

He has traveled to D.C. to speak about cartel violence, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and corruption of Mexico. He has also demanded investigations into the thousands of migrants who have gone missing while passing through the state of Coahuila and clamored for a DNA database to identify bodies.

He and Padre Goyo traveled to D.C. to the Human Rights Commission to report of the Iguala abuses and murders, a year before the now famous attacks in September on students by police.

He operates one of the largest migrant shelters in Mexico.  It is located in his home base of Saltillo, the capital of Coahuila.  Borderland Beat administrator Chivis Martinez has assisted the shelter since the murder of 72 migrants of Tamaulipas.  She reports the shelter is exceptional, temporarily housing over 100 migrants.

While padre Goyo toured the U.S. his friend Bishop Vera traveled to Berlin. In Berlin, outspoken bishop of Saltillo, presented a petition of 7,500 names to the German interior minister, asking for the suspension of negotiations over a security accord between Germany and Mexico. 

The accord would facilitate collaboration in the fight against organized crime.  The bishop says that any additional force given to Mexican police would be used against citizens. 
“It won’t be used against organized crime because organized crime and the government are very good friends. They have an understanding between them.  Ayotzinapa demonstrated that.”
The heavily awarded priest was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012.

Padre Alejandro Solalinde Guerra
In 2007 Solalinde founded the shelter “Hermanos en el Camino” in Ciudad Ixtepec, Oaxaca, whose mission  is to provide a safe shelter for migrants and to offer them food, medical and and legal aid.

Since then he has been a target of both corrupt local government and cartels.

Padre Solalinde has been arrested and imprisoned for his work with migrants.  Cartels send death threats to him on a regular basis, ordering him to cease speaking about migrant abuses and sheltering migrants.  Solalinde says there are over 100,000 migrants that have disappeared since the beginning of the Mexican drug war.

“Ma'am, tell the governor  that it shall only be over my dead body…”

The priest recalls the harassment during the government of PRI governor, Ulises Ruiz, and how he resisted the persecution: 
"Ulises Ruiz was behind a mega business using migrants. Two municipal presidents in Ixtepec wanted to make a business with the arrival of the immigrants through kidnappings, extortion, etc. 
But I was in their way.  I was and am a hindrance for the PRI. I have not allowed it, nor am I going to allow it, even at the cost of them doing a number of things to me, they even were going to kill me.
"I confronted Ulises Ruiz, not personally, because I don't have the displeasure of knowing him, but in Washington he sent a spokesperson and there in the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights on March 20th, 2010. I said to the rapporteur, 'The governor Ulises Ruiz, the only thing he asks for is the closing of the shelter or, failing that, he asks that it is placed on the other side of the bridge."
At the moment Solalinde intervened and asked some key questions: 
"Why are they want to get rid of it? Perhaps it is a problem for the businesses that the governor wants so he can exploit the migrants, to kidnap them and do all of that to them? Ma'am, tell the governor that it shall only be over my dead body. I explained to Rodrigo Escobar, the rapporteur, about the ruthless zone of exploitation and slavery and human trafficking they want to set up. That's why the situation is getting worse. Now Ixtepec has changed parties. It is with the PRD, it no longer attacks us and it has had goodwill while approaching us."
In May of 2012 Padre Solalinde left Mexico in exile for two months, this after a near kidnapping and an undisclosed specific threat.

He is also a supporter of Dr. Mireles and is a co-member of “Yo soy autodefensa”.
       Padre Solalinde visits abandoned migrants deported from the U.S. but far from Central American homes.  
The U.S. mostly deports central Americans just over the south border and orders them to walk into Mexico, Tijuana is filled with displaced 
migrants.  With no resources, constant threats, they are sitting ducks, men and women lost in limbo.

Tamaulipas and Veracruz 5-6 priests kidnapped/killed in 2 months

In the last months of 2013, at least 5 priests were taken and all presumed dead in southern Tamaulipas.
Carlos Ornelas Puga, (left) was kidnapped on November 3rd.  He was taken at gunpoint, from a parish in the municipality of Jiménez, although he belonged to the diocese of Ciudad Victoria.  The Catholic Church did not confirm this for over a week.  

On November 29, 2013 priests Hipólito Villalobos Lima and Nicolas de la Cruz Martinez were executed in the parish of San Cristóbal de Ixhuatlán de Madero, Veracruz.

In December two additional priests vanished in Tamaulipas, "In recent days two other priests disappeared from Ciudad Victoria," said the church source who asked to remain anonymous.

The murdered victim was identified as Guillermo Amaro Caésar, who died from a beating by suspected members of organized crime using bats.  However, state authorities downplayed version, says the priest was victim of an ‘assault”.  

Also in December 2013 another priest beating, who belongs to the parish of the Good Shepherd was also reported. It is presumed that he refused to officiate a Mass requested by organized crime to be held in the church and dedicated to Santa Muerte.

The authorities of the Catholic Church and the state government are dilatory or have not given information regarding the attacks against priests. 

Also in 2013.

February: Bishop José Flores Preciado,  in the Temple of Christ del Rey, in the city of Colima, Colima.  The 83 year old was beaten to death.The day after the killing, Bishop Jose Luis Amezcua Melgoza revealed that 30 of the of the 123 priests of  Colima, had been the victims of attempted extortion, including himself.

July: Father Ignacio Cortés Álvarez, “Nachito” was the priest in charge of the parish, “María Auxiliadora” in Ensenada, Baja California.  The priest had suffered over 2 dozen stab wounds.  His killers found the priest in the rectory living room, where the murder took place.  Ensenada is one of the most violent cities in BC.
In 2014 Guerrero lost three priests 

September- José Ascensión Acuña Osorio
November-John Ssenyondo
December- Gregorio López Gorostieta

The not so solid numbers in the cartel war against Mexican Catholic priests

Numbers are all over the place.  To achieve the greatest accuracy in numbers requires researching
regional newspapers and media. Often it is only there that a story will appear.   Then there is the issue of kidnapped priests whose body are never found, of never making the killed list.  

In effect, if the skull of padre John Ssenyondo had not been found in October, he would still be on the missing list.  The fact that the Church has been reluctant to confirm or report kidnappings of priests only  compounds the problem, and gives greater protection to cartels.

For the record, this is more or less the ‘Official’ accounting for the Calderon and EPN administrations.  On face value it is horrific enough, but nowhere near depicting the factual numbers or the  complete story of,  the cartel war against Mexican Catholic priests. 

During the Felipe Calderon administration:

12 priests murdered
162 recorded threats against priests in one year
1000 extortion crimes against priests
During the Enrique Peña Nieto administration there have been 10 priests murdered
Noticeably missing are numbers of missing or disappeared priests.

States with the greatest number of crime against priests

Most of these states are in southern Mexico, where the most marginalized peoples live. The impoverished, indigenous, darker skinned Mexicans who are prejudiced against, including the government who traditionally suppresses people of the south, and denies southern inhabitants basic resources afforded citizens in other regions.

  1. Matando a sacerdotes se ve que la gente que entra en el narco no son ni valientes y ni mucho menos hombres! Todos son una bola de panochas que nomas con gente innocente y con armas y emboscadas pueden con ellos! Que todos chinguen a susnre putotas madres y si quieren chingasos a mano limpia nomas vengan El Paso TX y nos vemos en el Ascarate. Se que no se atreven y menos a mano limpia los CULOTES estos!

    1. Amen to that brotha! May god bless you.

    2. Todo esto es cierto y esta bien y ojala y se hiciera justicia right? Pero a ver si BB hace un article acerca de LOS MILES de casos de abuso infantil por parte de estos "curitas"

      El Botija

  2. Mexico needs to bring back the death penalty and kick EPN out of office.

  3. Why ain't the Mexican Gov tracking these clowns down like they hounded the Arellano Felix Cartel after they killed Priest Posado. Bring back Cedillo as President!!!

    1. Cant u fuckin read?

      “organized crime and the government are very good friends“: that is why!

      Think about it: who does the cartels pay billions in bribes to? Why would those receiving billions in bribes possibly want their money makers to go away?

    2. Well if that's the case 4:14am...what's the point in even addressing this shit if nothing is or will ever be done.

  4. Just want to say that I've been following BB for about a year now and I can see that you are really stepping up your game lately - much respect and admiration. It takes a lot of time and work to research and translate and post, etc. and it's risky work so appreciate the courage above all. Thank you and mil gracias to everyone at BB, and to the brave reporters, writers, photographers, etc. in Mexico, please keep up the good work. atentamente un lector dedicado

  5. That is totally disgusting the government officials wanting a business kidnapping and extorting migrants especially when they are at their most vulnerable.The cartels I can see they are scum anyway but government officials?I'm about to throw up.Of course they can conveniently blame everything on the cartels.I'm glad this priest is stepping up to the plate.Someone has to or it will never end.

  6. The Catholic Church, through its policy of silence and refusal to report accurately the criminal acts committed against their parish priests, are complicit with the drug cartels and Mexico's corrupt government officials. Their failure to address these vile and inhuman acts serve to further empower cartels. The cowardly administrators within the church that have decided to remain largely silent should act with the same degree of bravery of Father Goyo and others who refuse to cowtow to the evil permeating Mexico. Rather than remaining silent, they should use the churche's influence amongst the people to organize demonstrations, marches and demand action from the federal government in Mexico City to act against the cartels and corrupt officials. The policy of remaining largely silent, while not reporting accurately the criminal acts committed against Catholic priests, has been a huge failure that further emboldens the criminals and corrupt government officials. Only by publicly shaming and focusing the world spotlight on these abhorrent cretins will anything change.

    1. I agree with your post 3:10!

    2. STFU. the RCC is the only church to openly speak against corruption. Blaming the RCC for the corruption in Mexico is like blaming a female for her own rape!

  7. On El Salvador, in 1980 4 nuns got kidnapped a d raped and murdered.
    US military attache blames the guerrillas, ronnie and his US ambassador to the UN and sec of state blame the guerrillas, the it was found extreme right paramilitary forces did the dirty deed, they were found guilty in 1984 and sentenced to 30 years in prison, and were free by the late 90s while the US kept sending military aid to the extreme right rapist and murdering El Salvadoran regime...
    --Same thing is happening all over mexico, government soldiers and poolice and paramilitary murdering and disappearing everybody and the priests in the middle of official cover-ups...while the US keeps supporting epn's ass in power...

  8. Narco $$$ are now more important for a failed state!
    On Monday morning the world’s tenth most traded currency, the Mexican peso, set a historic precedent that few Mexicans will welcome. For the first time ever, one US dollar fetched as many as 20 Mexican pesos in some of the nation’s banks, including its biggest, Bancomer, following eight consecutive days of losses.
    Of all the international currencies tracked by Bloomberg, only the Surinamese dollar fell more against the U.S. dollar last week. The peso also holds the dubious distinction of being the worst performing major emerging market currency of 2016, having lost close to 12% of its value.
    So far this week things have only got worse, as the peso’s value slumped from $19.64 on Monday morning to $19.83 at the close of Tuesday’s trading, while the cost of covering against a depreciating peso has reached historic levels in the derivatives market.
    There are plenty of reasons for Mexico’s peso woes, including the nation’s slowing economy, the government’s tightening fiscal strains, and the recent resignation of the Minister of Finance and Public Credit, Luis Videgary Caso, after being blamed for arranging an impromptu meeting between Mexico’s Premier Enrique Peña Nieto and the Donald Trump.
    The pains of much-shrunken, desperately debt-challenged, state-owned oil giant, Pemex, have also taken their toll. All these factors have contributed to the peso’s spectacular fall from grace – it now takes 60% more pesos to buy $1 than it did in January 2014:
    But the two most important reasons for its latest leg-down are:
    The currency’s status as a widely traded emerging market currency has led it to be widely used as a hedge to be sold in turbulent times against other emerging market positions.
    The peso’s newfound role as an insurance policy against a Trump victory in November’s U.S. election.
    As some investors are getting spooked over the prospect of a Trump presidency, they are hedging against such an outcome by shorting the peso, making it a perfect barometer of Donald Trump’s US election chances, according to the Financial Times:
    [A]s the head of emerging markets at one New York-based bank put it: “If you believe Hillary will win, you should be buying the hell out of Mexican assets.”

    Alonso Cervera at Credit Suisse in Mexico City traces the link between the peso and the US election to early May, when Mr Trump won the Indiana primary and his rival Ted Cruz dropped out of the race. “The peso sold off and all the other emerging market currencies were unchanged,” he said.

  9. @Chivis. Great story. As always putting current events and stories in the context of the the "big picture" that MSM doesn't touch on.

    @Readers; Since the main stream media does not do in-depth reporting like this, YOU CAN HELP. There are buttons at the end of the story that will allow you to share this story to "social media" like Face Book. Click on the icon applicable to you and we will inform 1000's of people that do not realize what is happening down here.

  10. Gracias Lucio
    Yes , EXCELLENT post
    You pointed out everything that went through my mind reading yesterday's posts about the two priests.

  11. These priest are getting the short of the stick, I guess you have to go throw hell to get to heaven

  12. Why hasn't the Pope addressed this to the world?! They should send in the elite Guardia Svizzera!

    1. He should have said something when he was in Mexico. I guess Nieto's donation was too good.

    2. You try to be funny.

      OK, here is a question for you: why the Mexican police don't do its job ?

    3. Gaurdia de la gente es activo en la sombra...X

  13. If we amalgamate our resources a lot more can be accomplished. Each 1 of us is good at something. No matter how trivial it may be. - El Sol Perdido

    1. I refuse to work with soldiers or former soldiers infiltrated by their master "the government" and spies and all the other unrepentant chapulines that refuse to repent and apologize for their dirty deeds...

  14. OK. It's a sin to do this.

  15. Desde Tierra Caliente
    Es terrible pero cierto matan a cualquiera que hable públicamente la verdad. Vivimos con miedo. Hablar y un halcone puede estar escuchando. Cuando se traduce a mí estos artículos que tengo esperanza. Doy gracias por la valentía de Borderland beat

  16. Maybe now there will finally be a real crackdown on all of this cartel/crime activity. That's what happened in the 90's when they killed cardenal Posadas Ocampo when the confused with chapo. The catholic church complained and chapo was in custody later that year in Guatemala.

    1. 10:40 the CAF tried to murder el chapo, their stray bullets killed the archbishop instead, about 160 bullets hit him, his driver and his car, why was el chapo guzman arrested? Again?

  17. Chivis, you should print my comments about the failing peso in a failing state, as it has a lot to do with crime and trafficking and murder in Mexico! As Mexicans purchasing power weakens, so does their ability to feed their families!

  18. May God's wrath fall on these animals who have no reguard for or respect for these representatives,,, ambassadors of God.. I pray that God send the same fate on these cartel evil monsters, and they (cartels meet death) and hell purify them of their evil!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Off topic.
    El Guano Guzman and dozens of his sicarios took control of Huixiopa Badiraguato. Which was under control of the Beltran Leyva brothers for some weeks now.
    1 of Guanos sicario said "a esos si los vamos a ser pedazos" "we are going to chop them up" referring to the Beltranez. All of Guanos sicarios are armed with ak-47, granades and heavy ammo. This is sign that the Guzman family has been gaining strength.

  20. Great report, BB!

    Breaking: The Archdiocese of Morelia says priest Jose Alfredo Lopez Guillen was abducted Monday from his parish residence in the rural town of Janamuato, in the western state of Michoacan. The archdiocese said Thursday that he was kidnapped after his residence was robbed.
