  1. I am back but not 100...I will do mybest

    1. Dont worry too much,you do enough already girl,it may be a labor of love but some things are more important,so try and chill and dont stress too much.Everyone should understand,and if they dont ? As your moniker on forum says... Be well Madame Chivis

    2. Good to have you back chivis!!!!

    3. Yayyy Chivis, glad your surgery went well

    4. Wishing you a speedy recovery...take your time...we need you for the long haul..

  2. Cds losing bad they better of going back to Sinaloa

  3. I know that widespread poverty means that the cartels don't usually have problems finding more foot soldiers, but with homicide rates so high I admit that I'm sometimes still surprised that they can recruit more cannon fodder.

    1. Poverty makes one take that risk for many unfortunately.

  4. It's ok Chivis take one day at a time, that ansthesia, take a few days to wear out.
    El Perin de Tamp.

  5. This keeps happening, there will be no tourist in Tijuana. Wonder if the bars on Coahulia still in business?

    1. Ask someone that lives in Tijuana, I sure would not want to walk into a bar, it might be owned by a cartel, and chances of coming out are slim, possibly get robbed and kidnapped.

  6. Rumors are that a lot of the female victims are prostitutes whose handlers are robbing them of the cash these workers earn and then forcing their disappearance. Its a cruel cold heartless world in TJ.

    1. Why should they kill their cash cows??? I would say they got killed by rivals cause they can’t get their hands on the pimps these girls are working for.

    2. Don't expect logical decisions in TJ. Trying to figure out why TJ people make bad (shortsighted) decisions will drive you mad.

  7. Bienvenida Arriba Saltillo 😁

  8. Why is Tijuana so hot right now? Who is in control now?

    1. Jalisco is fighting the sinaloa cartel there

    2. Everywhere is Mexico is hot, people getting slaughtered, like if they are animals. Arresting the criminals is slim

    3. 8:46 CJNG CTNG

    4. NOBODY is in full control thats why theres so many killings...

  9. Replies
    1. You referring to me or Sacario 006? He is MIA, no one knows what happened to him.
      El Perin de Tamp

    2. 006 Sicario was in a shootout, hope he is ok.

    3. Yanqui survived the fires, perhaps some donkeys survived.
      Chivis survived the surgery.

  10. Cjng/ctng gaining more ground

  11. If this murder was related to drugs and the drug cartel then all of the American people who use drugs, including and not limited to Marijuana took part in the Murder of this Mayors. Furthermore, all murders in Mexico connected to the drug cartel has a direct correlation with the demand of narcotics being consumed in the #USA.

    No wall, no matter how tall it may be narcotics is going to keep flowing into the USA because the demand there.

    Supply will always satisfy the demand.

    1. Not true Bahir, There is a difference between drug dealers and drug traffickers. Most of the murders that we see now in TJ are between local drug dealers vs rival dealers/dealers vs clients/dealers vs cops (the cops are criminals too here), kidnappers vs dealers, extortionist vs dealers etc. TJ has not suffered from the Traffickers vs. Traffickers violence that Drug users in the US are somewhat responsible for.
