  1. What people should do if they suspect someone wanted is in a house buy a cell phone jammer activate it and then call the authorities them criminals wont see it coming or get tipped off

  2. These guys r brave. With Gun Control in Mexico they can be arrested and to jail for 6 years. This where the U.S. could be of help, at least give them some M-16, 30 Cals. And 50's God Bless the Great Mexican people

    1. It should be the president of Mexico to help, also did you read lately, your president said no help is needed, I am sorry to inform you of the information.

    2. they don't carry guns... just radios = The Halcones, they could arm themselves but would need special permission from government like when Dr. Merieles was an armed group but then revoked it and arrested him

    3. Such an inept government. Mexico can care less about its citizens. Only how much is owed to fill their pockets.

    4. at least give them some M-16, 30 Cals. And 50's....thats exactly what the lazy CBP does, let hundreds of thousends of arms cross into mexico. Taking money to let drug´s in and look the other way when arms were trafficed south.

  3. Is el comandante r10 dead already or what?
