  1. Damn... I don’t think the military can suffer another chopper downed (like in Jalisco), it really hurts the morale.

  2. That guy in the video is really annoying with his 2 dollar mask ,stop trying be sensational fool

  3. Probably just an incident of distraction, to lure the cops in one direction, so the real task could be accomplished in another direction.

  4. I think you meant ar-15 in the article. Also, Mexico really needs to utilize the Air Force/Air units more effectively. They should be providing guidance, weapon superiority against these terrorists. Mexico needs to step it up.

  5. Under Amlo Administration, Cartel r muy Bravo, they in control. Amlo as absolutely Zero security. In our state the Cartel own it. They must be very Pleased with Amlo. Can u imagine what mexico look like in 4 years, pretty bad, only thing can happen is Miltary take over.

  6. I guess we just except Mexico 🇲🇽 what is a very violent country. I must say the population has

    1. Except or Accept??????

    2. 701
      Except or Accept??????

  7. The state police in the helicopter captured several armored cars/trucks along with high caliber mounted rifles(.50cal) belong to the “Rumas brothers” who control Puerto Lobos, Desemboque, Puerto Libertad, La Y, Ultimo Esfuerzo, along with several Ejidos along the coast of Caborca. The dismembered bodies found Inside a cooler just a few days before this event was a job done(confessions)by this group of sicarios who got apprehended by state police and soldiers.Seems The Rumas brothers are loosing control/power over the territory they used to control for several years.

    1. If true that they got the rumas, I amhappy. Remember back in december/january they killed some poor dudes who used to sell tortillas, they were on their way from Caborca to the ejidos. Super early, around 4-5 am. Rumas pendejos, I hope things get better in that side of Caborca.
