  1. Any news on CDS mz alliance with CDS chapos sounds like bullshit to me.

    1. Yes they were out playing poker last night, then Jose went dancing with Coca.

    2. Who ever said that comment was just wishfull thinking
      CDS is broken up and nothing is getting them together
      El vicentillo is out, i wonder if he went back to sinaloa or if he is in the witness protection program. He did little time but got a 1 billion dollar fine.. i wonder if that paid for his protection. Whatever the case, he might get special privilages more than what he was given before. He was free to transport drugs and all he had to do is snitch on someone he knew that was also selling drugs..

    3. 8:25 he was sentenced to 15 years but since he cooperated with authorities he was released early this year.

  2. On her day off, west of Fresnillo. Her father o the force as well. A nice tribute with her compadres and just outside a hospital. Complete, cowardly. Too bad Fresnillo lies in the crossroads of Nayarit, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosi, etc. Another wasted, valued life for what? Who can do this? Money over life, f**king twisted

  3. Yeah Vicente thanks to your fine your dad it’s over here in Mexico working overtime the Sinaloa cartel was run by Government officials in both sides they started to loose credibility and now the new Generation has the government support this shit will never end I guess politicals run the cartel’s to do their dirty job for them to be always i power Rich the Rich Poor the Poor

  4. 7:00 Vicente, Beltan, Sinaloa? CJNG has gov't support? what else is new? Politicals,, just like an any country needs to go. Term limits, it's not about the next election . . . pendejo

  5. Sad commentary that she died with more dignity, and less pain, than if she HAD been kidnapped, and you know the rest. She wasn't jaded yet, or obviously for sale. Where do these heroes come from?
