Before the condemned male leaves this world, he will narrate on camera the inner workings of organized crime in and around the Mexico - Guatemala border region.

Sicario: Why was this being done?

Captive: So that no one would find out what all they were doing. 

Sicario: Tell me what happened during that armed confrontation where rifles were seized. 

Captive: Rifles were confiscated but Toño Martinez showed up with a few civilians. They all came to an agreement and went to the military base in Jocote for this deal. Their understanding consisted of the military returning those guns in exchange for some old rifles. 

Sicario: So, what happened next?

Captive: In the end those new rifles that had been seized were exchanged by the bosses for some older guns that weren’t any good anymore. But they were all dropped off where that previous armed confrontation had taken place in order for the military to collect them. 

Sicario: And how exactly do you know all of this?

Captive: Because I was personally there when this all went down. 

Sicario: Why did this go down like this?

Captive: Because they had already made a report with their superiors beforehand and those weapons had to be accounted for. So, an agreement was made with Bladimir Orantes and Toño Martínez in order for those new rifles to be exchanged with some older ones that no longer worked. That’s what all happened there. 

Sicario: How long have the government officials and military personnel been sold out for?

Captive: That’s been a perpetual thing here. 

Sicario: Are the military troops stationed here the same individuals or are they newbies?

Captive: It’s the same individuals as always…


  1. It seems it has been awhile since cds made an interrogation

  2. But why they gotta be the biggest snitches 🤦🏽‍♂️😡

    1. Daddy calls it like he sees it. And CDS are famous for being known snitches. 🤣

    2. Agreed, just remember to call out Jalislacras as the notorious "volteados" from other cartels. Snitch or turncoat, who is worse?

    3. Nice way to show your favoritism to other cartels sol , what happened to unbiased journalism?? But you’re from Michoacán aren’t you … I’m not surprised you would be a CJNG fan

    4. There all snitches

    5. Daddy? Wtf sol you a weirdo

    6. 10:20 hit it right on the target, sol is just rejected wannabe sicario

    7. Cause sol is not a real journalist obviously. Def just a wannabe. He litterly just translates others work. If you look on other sites he just translating, nothing original ever.

    8. 9:24 that is true the Jaliscos are volteados. Can't say I blame them since we all know they got tired of dealing with the world famous snitch cartel, CDS.

      10:20 so now I'm from Michoacán huh? Please hold on to all of that intelligence you have there son cause you're really going to need it in this world 😆

      11:00 yes true they're all snitches. But the biggest snitches cartel are CDS.

      5:03 not a real journalist huh? And yet year after year thousands have cone along to read my work in English because no one else knows how to properly translate from Spanish to English whenever there's too much slang involved. Daddy's been holding everyone's hand that can't pull it off because they either can't do it themselves or they're too lazy to even try investing the amount of time it takes. On top of that my work is being used by all those bright bulbs online who are constantly asking their readers for money. But yeah keep telling yourself that nothing I do is original moron. 🤣

    9. Everyone in the drug game a snitch. Once you collaborate with the law that makes you a rat. Mencho, chapo or mayo! They all some tricks

    10. They got it from cali boys out there in columbia

    11. 5:03 your such a dumb ass, you got to be ass of the class. We all know Sol helps in translating fresh articles, coming from Mexico into English, as your not aware that takes time.
      Also the Credit line is given at the bottom of the article. You should appreciate life more, as many are losing, thier lives in Mexico.

    12. @Sol You got tired of seeing CDS snitching 🤣. CDS publications alwaysss get the most comments and interest. Que tengan envidia es otra cosa haha. CDS been on top for a minimum of 30 years. So thats all that comes out on the news. Neverrrrr forget that mencho started as CDS! Also remember that mencho snitched on the norteños in cali when he got busted. So the main cjng head is a certified snitch, its on file. So jaliscos and michoacanos can 🤫. Poco a poco se van descubriendo tambien. 🤣🤣

    13. 😂😂😂😂 i knew this was gonna happen @ sol te encanta patear el panal de las Sinalocas, if you say the same shit to CJNG fans they wont go as crazy as the CDS fans🤣🤣🤣 love it!!!!

    14. Wont go as crazy? Haha. No salen de la boca de los dos estados los de sinaloa.

    15. You saw what happened to “Pirata de Culiacán”…..⚠️

    16. 11:46 Colombia

  3. 8:32 he's got a spoon and he's stirring up the pot.

  4. Cocaine, chickens, and kidnappings..
    A blue-chip portfolio..

  5. Why do they always spill the beans knowing they gonna get killed anyways!

  6. What does he mean by "transporting chickens"? 🐓🐔

    1. Chickens = People

    2. 5:33 yeah I've been thinking that as well. Thanks though.

    3. Talves centro americanos

  7. That guy Dario is a heavy weight

  8. This person sol is getting out of hand calling himself daddy and putting articles being bias and always using vulgar language. Also bullying people for commenting. Is this middle school?

    1. 214 he thinks he is in control of this and not just a glorified reporter. He also only posts what deemed politically in line with democratic policies bc he likes the chaos and communistic views they represent…..

    2. 2:14 Stop whining like a douche.

    3. 2:14
      Yes I would say middle school kids, come in here, to cheerlead, act like they know more etc.
      I am sorry if you don't like the site, your subscription will be refunded, have a nice day.

    4. A el y a sus jaliscillos les cala que cds jala mejor que los satanicos delas 4 lacras. Si hay soplones en el cds pues siempre va ver en esos rollos pero el cjng no se queda atras ademas. Pero la organización sigue adelante y sin tantas marranadas como los Michoacanos y jaliscos

    5. 7:13 si vamos hablar de satánicos entonces todos los carteles se pintan igual con eso de que andan todos parejos vendiendo veneno baboso. Así que mejor callase la boca pendejete.

    6. 7:17 como siempre las Sinalocas parandoce de chichis porque les dicen snitches 🤣🤣🤣 les duele la verdad

  9. Sedena been pressing with there "leaks" so it seems fitting they expose them for the crooks they are. Sedena try to act like they doing major work. Haha

  10. Chinaloas mad over CDS being called SNITCHaloas😭😂😂🤣🤣

  11. If you know your about to die, die like a man instead of answering questions and telling on everyone

    1. I'm sure you'll walk it like you talk it tuff guy

    2. Probably a mix of not being loyal to the cause, absolute fear and a small hope if you tell they won’t flay you or do something to your family

    3. They don’t just kill you right away …if you’re kidnapped then that means they will torture you till you speak now are you prepared to handle days , weeks of torture ? My guess is most of us after a couple days would say absolutely everything

    4. Get a grip,this is real life not fuckin Diehard,we would all be squealing like a virgin in that situation,except you of course

    5. 'If you know your about to die, die like a man'
      Bro stop poking that fire with your dick,we know your hard core

    6. 9.11am. ''Telling on Everybody'' (you sound like an 8 year old btw) is how they are allowed to die like a man, instead of the screaming animal they've been for the last 48 hours. You children talking about ''snitching'' don't know shit.

  12. @12.45. A couple of days? It takes a couple of minutes. Usually all they have to do is show the instruments and detail their use for the victim to tell everything they know, and that is known and expected by both sides.. They continue the torture because it is the logical end, even though they know very quickly whether there is real information to be had.

  13. Just like life we dont get to pick and choose someone elses attitude and behaviour!Sol is a package deal on here.What he does for us and this website is of far more value than any niggling complaints about bias!He is open and honest about them and always shows respect when its deserved(and sometimes non at all)So stop expecting him to be your echo chamber.And a big hello to the cia analyst who has to read this.Loved your work in Cuba

    1. Is this you sol 😭

    2. 12:40 that's cute that I'm on your mind. But no that's not me genius.
