    I'm aware of allegations that the American gov't let weapons walk, and they end up used by Mexican criminal persons. I've yet seen corporate media outlets say where the 'self-defense' groups get their weaponry. Are there state actors providing them? Mexico can't claim a 2nd Amendment, so I'm a bit flummoxed on where the guns come from.

    Vigilante groups in Mexico's Michoacan state are defying government orders to lay down their weapons, as the Mexican army makes a new push to pacify this conflict-ridden and strategic part of the country.

    AGUA PRIETA - New details being released on a shoot-out in Agua Prieta, Sonora south the US/Mexico border where several fatalities occurred in two separate incidents.

    According to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office all information received indicates that this is probably cartel related with massive amounts of munitions used to include automatic weapons, 50 caliber weapons, and hand grenades.

    The Cochise County Sheriff's Office is reporting the death toll between 8-13 people, none of whom are listed as US Citizens.

    LA RUANA, Mexico — A week after the federal government seized security functions in troubled Michoacan state, the organized crime group wreaking havoc in the state has gone to ground.

    But the top three leaders of the Knights Templar gang remain at large, and the armed citizens militia that’s put the gang on the run says it won’t give up its weapons until the leaders are caught.

    “If they don’t capture these people, then we will remain armed,” said Hipolito Mora, one of the founders of the vigilante movement that began 11 months ago and has occupied much of the state where the Knights Templar had been active.

    “Drug trafficking is always going to continue,” says Neftali Villagomez, a 66-year-old butcher who now commands nearly 400 armed vigilantes in Tierra Colorada, a rural market town 35 miles north of the gang-ravaged resort of Acapulco.

    “We aren't against drug traffickers,” he says. “We are against organized crime.”

    Joaquin Guzman, the world’s most-wanted drug lord, was arrested Friday night in Mexico without incident. Worth $1 billion, he’s been hiding out since 2001, when he escaped a maximum security prison in Mexico by bribing guards to smuggle him out in a laundry cart.

    Is this suspected drug lord wanted in the USA? He might actually stay awhile longer there, than in Mexico; unless he "slips on the soap".

    Laird Rahm Emmanuel, Prince of the Chicago Fiefdom, wants him.

    Guzman has been most notably charged in two federal grand jury indictments in the U.S. – in Chicago in 2009, and In El Paso in 2012.

    In the Chicago case, the more sweeping of the two, he is charged along with 10 other Sinaloan cartel leaders in a massive indictment for moving heroin and cocaine into this country after his organization merged with another “affiliated cartel” and formed an alliance knows as “the Federation.”

    But that agreement later fractured, and since then, according to the “special grand jury“ impaneled just to look at the cartel case, Guzman and other leaders “became engaged in a violent war in Mexico over various issues, including control of lucrative narcotics trafficking routes into the United States.”

    Federal prosecutors in Chicago brought the charges against Guzman in Chicago in 2009, after the two cartels began a feud and two brothers, Pedro and Margarito Flores, who had been working with the cartels began cooperating with federal investigators.
    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...joaquin-guzman


    In Chicago, where the city's crime commission last year named Guzman its Public Enemy No. 1 -- a designation originally crafted for Al Capone -- authorities praised the arrest. Chicago is among the major destinations of the cartel's drug flow.

    "The arrest of Chapo Guzman is significant," police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a statement. "This is a victory, but we know the tentacles of his cartel still exist and much more work remains to be done. Demand for narcotics will still remain, so we will continue to partner with the DEA as they fight international drug trade, and we will remain focused on our efforts to eliminate the factors that drive violence in our city."

    TEPACA DE BADIRAGUATO, MEXICO — The surge of cheap heroin spreading in $4 hits across rural America can be traced back to the remote valleys of the northern Sierra Madre.

    With the wholesale price of marijuana falling — driven in part by decriminalization in sections of the United States — Mexican drug farmers are turning away from cannabis and filling their fields with opium poppies.

    Outmanned and outgunned, local law enforcement officers are alarmed by the drug and human trafficking, prostitution, kidnapping and money laundering that Mexican drug cartels are conducting in the U.S. far from the border.

    U.S. sheriffs say that securing the border is a growing concern to law enforcement agencies throughout the country, not just those near the U.S.-Mexico boundary.

    The migrants are no longer primarily Mexican laborers. Instead they are Central Americans, including many families with small children and youngsters without their parents, who risk a danger-filled journey across Mexico. Driven out by deepening poverty but also by rampant gang violence, increasing numbers of migrants caught here seek asylum, setting off lengthy legal procedures to determine whether they qualify.
