There MAY BE VERY graphic photographs that accompany some articles in the body of this report. It is not our intention to sensationalize. We include these photos in order to give to you, the American public, a clearer understanding of the seriousness of the situation in Mexico and Central America.
**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity. Some items may be from notirex.com, lapoliciaca.com or historiasdelnarco.com. Some incidents of violence may not be included here due to the large number of death reports.
MONTERREY, NUEVO LEÓN***
Six people were executed last week. Two were police officers working traffic assignment, and another officer was beheaded, with his body left in one place and his head elsewhere. The two were assassinated while on patrol in a marked unity. A man and 2 teens were also killed in a separate incident.
NUEVO LAREDO, TAMAULIPAS
The newspaper El Manaña has announced it will no longer publish news of violence due to several attacks with guns and grenades against them. (Editor’s Note: This is one of the reasons that Mexicans and this publication have become more dependent on blogs, Twitter and other social media such as Facebook for news as it happens in Mexico.)
Late Thursday a truck with plates from the State of Guerrero was discovered with blood dripping out of it. Inside were seven bodies without heads. Three heads were found elsewhere, but it is not yet known if they match any bodies.
The municipal police chief was kidnapped and later found dead in the town of Meoqui, with barbed wire around his neck and showing signs of torture. The municipalities with the highest crime rate in the state of Chihuahua are: Villa Ahumada, Madera, Chihuahua, Meoqui, Delicias and Rosales.
Late Thursday, four municipal police officers were killed and one wounded. Minutes later there was a shootout with subjects in a vehicle. they fled, leaving the vehicle. Inside were found 3 AK 47 assault rifles.
CIUDAD VICTORIA, TAMAULIPAS
This city south of Monterrey continue to see massive violence. On Thursday, nine were killed and another 6 wounded. There was a strong explosion against the state police facilities, with no further details. The Mexican military thwarted an ambush against the state police chief. Recently, there was an attack against his home with a car bomb which killed two state police agents serving as his bodyguards. there were chases and shootouts, with the bad guys throwing out tire-deflating “spikes” called caltrops.
Two municipal police officers have been detained by Mexican Marines for criminal involvement. (Mexican Marines assumed primary policing duties in Veracruz some time ago due to the police corruption.)
Three gunmen were killed and 3 arrested after a number of violent encounters the end of he week. Two state police were wounded during the encounters. Residents were advised not to leave their homes unless necessary.
Gunmen attacked a police patrol unit, killing one and wounding another 2 officers at about 10 pm on Friday July 13.
Political messages on blankets appeared around the city over the weekend
The 60 year old mother and 6 year old daughter of a municipal policewoman were executed in their home. A girl of 12 was wounded with bullets to her buttocks.
The governor of the State of Sinaloa has asked the Mexican Defense department for better weapons for their police. He cited the recent ambush which left 7 officers dead, partly due to the cartel’s superior fire power (better weapons). He also related the three ambush attacks on highways which killed a total of 25 officers. He pointed out the gunmen used automatic rifles and armor, which put the police at a disadvantage. For this reason he specifically asked for AK 47’s and the .50 Caliber Barrett rifle (which can defeat armor).
