  1. Glad to see justice against those who have been immune from prosecution in the past. A big step for its citizens.

    1. Unfortunately he will be let out soon, he has political connections. And knows alot more of the Curupt system, since he was a Chief.

    2. In and out ready to do corruption again

  2. I don't know, could he have held grudge by something else, like his daughter, son, impunity in Matamoros or something else. 12 shots is someone very mad

    1. Good point of their being anger towards the bictim

  3. Probably just a slap on the bald headed ass
