  1. He’s like the 3rd one this week, Amlo making room for mencho now that cjng made that video they’re in el estado de Mexico

  2. What is he doing in the picture? Reaching into his unsearched pockets for a roll of Benjamins??

  3. Seems like lunares is snitching his guys out

  4. Wait, what...Mexico is questioning his immigrant status, and ready to deport this illegal alien after prosecution for the crimes alleged against him. What a concept!

    1. Good job trying to make this political. Btw no one is against deportation of illegal immigrants that commit felonious acts... Deportation of illegal immigrants for minor (mostly traffic) offenses is what I believe people are more against. Breaking up of families whom been here for decades and have established a foundation also is what I believe people (or whom you would label as leftists) are against. No one wants to live around dangerous criminals but we shouldn't have to break up families in the midst of attempting to keep the dangerous ones away.

  5. Dudes a real scumbag. Sounds like he robbed and killed those three people and left them in their car.

  6. Shooting in Uruapan on the mainstream news

  7. They need the death penalty as a deterrent for this a**hole.

  8. Gov. Catching these low life "cholos" up and down but catch big shot cartel people once every 4 months.

  9. He is a punk kid/baby wanna be a Man
    Yes I believe the streets will be safer

    Would really like to know how he was brought up ie if he was born with drugs in his system? how his motber and father raised him etc To understand what made him such a cold blooded killer at early age ..
    Glad he is caught Keep him locked up forever
    Mexico should bring back death penalty
